Dogs are learning all the time. By the time a dog is 6 months they start forming  their own ideas about how the world works and it may not match what you have in mind. Does your dog come when you call them? Are they pulling too much on leash? Is your dog barking, jumping, and still nipping? Do they get excited by noises, people or dogs?  Let’s get your pup to focus and pay attention to you instead of everything else in their environment.  Together we will discover what is driving your dog and change the way they view the world.

Behavior History Form

Consultations are 60-90 minutes long.   We will discuss your dog’s behavior and come up with realistic management tools you can implement right away as well as a training plan to help you reach your goals.

These sessions are meant to find out why your dog is behaving a certain way, how to modify their behavior and help guide you to train your dog to live in a more peaceful manner. Individual sessions can be booked as needed.

Would you like help understanding why your dog  behaves the way he does? Are you frustrated living with an untrained dog or one that expresses some behavior problems? Together we can prevent,  manage and train your dog to respect boundaries. Your dog can learn new behaviors that create peace for both species.

Board and Train

$200 per night. 5 day minimum

This can be a perfect solution if you are going out of town. Your dog will practice their manners and get three formal training sessions per day.   Two 30 minute transfer sessions  are included upon your return.

TESTIMONIALS

Willow Glen Paws Puppy School was just the training we needed for our little boxer. Rebecca was amazing to work with. She really listened, was supportive, and made training fun. Our puppy loved going there and we loved getting the updates and photos. We’ve definitely seen the results and highly recommend this school to others.

Rebecca helped us get off to right start with our new Goldendoodle puppy. I enjoyed working with Rebecca and was happy with how she helped us train and teach our family how to work with the puppy. We also used her for board and train while on vacation. She made us feel very good about leaving our puppy in very good caring hands.

Audrey Garcia

Highly recommend. Rebecca takes a very positive & down to earth approach to dog training. She trains in her home, so our pup Annie learned in the same kind of environment she lives in – couches & kitchen counters & so on – and she gave us plenty of support to continue the training at home. I thought I pretty much knew the basics about puppies & dogs, but I learned so much from Rebecca!

Emily Bolmen

“Rebecca is a godsend. She came to our house and went over everything we needed for our new puppy to make sure we started on the right paw. She is knowledgable about puppies and patient with thier owners. We are so happy we found her.”
