A Chat with Gentle Paws Dog and Cat Training
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Classes are taught by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer with over 20 years experience with no more than 4 dogs per class. Training should be fun and be able to be applied in the real world, not just the class room. All of our training packages come with life-time email and phone support.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I fell in love with training in 1990 when I took my first puppy to obedience school and have been training ever since. Dogs fascinate me; how incredibly smart and resilient they are! I love to see my human students bond and connect with their dogs as they realize the potential their furry one has.
What do you love most about your job?
What’s not to love? I get to work with people and dogs! I have the privilege of helping dog owners learn how to “talk dog” - enhancing the relationship and bond. Having a dog should be fun, not stressful - I love to see the stress start to dissipate.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback I get is when a client who wasn’t sure they could keep their dog before we started training tells me they can’t imagine giving them up now. Or - the dog that can’t come in the house because of his manners, suddenly has become a beloved family member inside the home.
