Welcome! Tom De Luca III, is a Nationally 'Accredited' and Internationally 'Certified' Canine Training Instructor, working with Aggression, Puppies and Service Dog's for for the past 18 years.

Tom's proven methods primarily involve 'Operant Conditioning', 'Positive Reinforcement' and 'Active Communication' techniques to train the first behaviors in his client's dogs. The Paw-Lite Method SPECIFICALLY works to minimize and eliminate corrections in the later stages of training, by gently conditioning a solid foundation in the early stages using non-confrontational techniques, so clients can safety start training their pup at 10 weeks old. Sessions are 'goal oriented' and automatically pre-train the next phases of learning.

Obedience (OB) training teaches a dog how to act in a co-operative and controlled way. Emphasis should be put on establishing good contact between the dog and the handler and on achieving the dog’s willingness to obey even when at distance from the handler.

Tom specializes in 'notoriously' difficult to train terriers, and has experience training all breed groups, both in a Group Class setting, and hands-on, one-on-one as a Professional Full-Time In-Kennel Primary-Staff Trainer.

Tom has also trained dogs for:
     ● AKC, UKC, IKC - Conformation Rings
     ● AKC Competition Obedience
     ● Agility
     ● Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Certification
     ● Therapy Dog International (TDI) Certification
     ● Assistance/Service Dog Certification

Training that comes to you! - Tom works with your entire family for 4, 1-hour sessions, at your location, and shows YOU how to train your dog to eliminate undeseriable behavior based on the dog's temperment. In as little as 15 minutes a day, you can build a strong well-balanced pack/bond/relationship with your dog.

Discover simple methods to teach your dog 'Basic' and 'Advanced' manners and take your dog anyplace you go, on-leash or off-leash without fighting with the dog and repeating commands!

Each dog at Paw-Lite is approached as an individual whether it is fearful, dominant or a young puppy, and the training outline is assessed and modified for each dog's specific needs. Some dogs require a more direct approach and this is not a problem.
