Learn, Teach, Play, Thrive


A Pawsitive Approach specializes in using positive training methods to teach dog owners the skills and techniques that will transform your pup into a happy, confident, and well-mannered member of the family. By learning how your dog’s mind works you’ll be able to instill behaviors that will mold them into the best possible version of themselves. When your dog is well-behaved they can enjoy more freedom and you will have peace of mind. By investing time on this journey both you and your dog will attain a sense of confidence and achievement and will be turning tails wherever you go!

Group Excursions

Whether you need help getting your dog out and about during a busy work week or you’re looking for long-term help-I’ve got you covered. Dogs must have had recall training and strong leash skills for this service. Not only will they get a ton of exercise but they will practice basic training skills and build confidence in a pack. 

  • 2-3 hours depending on pick up and drop off location

Pet Sitting

When you choose A Pawsitive Approach you get a trusted, and caring professional. I’m an animal lover first, so you know all my visits come with loads of love and personalized attention.

Choose from two options for your convenience:

  • I can come and stay at your home so that your pup is comfortable in their own space
  • I can host your pup at mine with pick up and drop off offered!
