simple, scientific, 'peer-reviewed', mixed-curve methods to
teach your dog 'Basic' and 'Advanced' manners needed to be

with the dog and repeating commands!
dog at Paw-Lite is approached as an individual and the training
outline is assessed and modified for each dog's specific needs.
Program Is Perfect For Puppies, and Older Dogs With, or
Without Behavioral Issues!!
'establishes operations' with your dog whether it is fearful,
dominant or young puppy, and initiates training based on the
dog's temperament, relationship to owner and age.
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
by using many non-confrontational "errorless learning"
techniques, so you can safety start training your pup with
Tom at 8 weeks old. Sessions are goal oriented and automatically
pre-train the next phase of learning.
for aggressive dogs, most dog bites do not just 'happen'.
Often there are many months of 'going along with the dog'.
If your dog is Dominant, Passive Aggressive, Fearful, Territorial,
Protective, Guarding, Lunging, Biting, you need to know how
to reverse this dangerous trend on the first visit!
