Training Methodology

Training Your Animal Friends

At Paws Up! Complete Dog Training, we recognize that every dog is a unique individual.  Therefore, training programs are designed with a holistic approach, keeping in mind each dog’s physical, emotional, and mental well being as well as their natural instinct in order to effect behavior.  We believe that creating a relationship rooted in clear communication between a dog and owner that fosters respect and trust though a motivational combination of play and obedience is paramount.  Scientific based positive reinforcement methods are always used to teach exactly what actions we expect from the dogs we work with. We then help dogs to generalize behaviors and work with duration, distraction, and distance to proof commands and create reliability, especially in different environments.  Then, as needed, responsibility is taught through adding minor consequences for incorrect choices.  To be sure every dog is able to build his or her confidence and also has a tail wagging good time, each dog and person will receive the patience and understanding they deserve. We do not cram obedience or muscle the dogs around, and owners will never be rushed through an appointment or left with unanswered questions.

Here’s What They’re Saying

As a Certified Professional Dog Trainer in CT, I make sure to give my clients and their pets the utmost attention and dedication they deserve. I’m proud to showcase the following testimonials from some of my valued clients. Read their critiques of my classes and private lessons to check out what’s being said about me, and see why you and your dog should be training with me too!  Contact me now to get started.

Kara has been amazing to work with.  She is invested, knowledgeable, professional, and, most importantly, fun to work with.  Even before our puppy Murphey came home, Kara provided us with the tools, resources, and expertise to set him up for success.  Kara realizes that training is not "one-size fits all."  She has worked collaboratively with us to give Murphey the training he needs based on where he is in his puppy development.  It's clear that Kara truly cares for our dog and has a positive, patient attitude when she works with him.  Kara takes the time to answer all of our questions and provides us with hands-on instruction so that we feel confident and comfortable as we navigate Murphey's training.  We strongly recommend Kara to anyone who is interested in raising a well-rounded, confident pup.
