Dog Training for San Antonio & Hill Country

Marlene Ring Training her PuppyOur Approach To Dog Training

Marlene of PAWSitive Solutions believes that dogs are valued family members.

If your dog is jumping on visitors, going potty in the house, pulling on the leash, nipping or just not listening…she can help with these and many other issues!

Marlene uses the latest positive reinforcement training and operant conditioning to improve behaviors. Her techniques give you the tools needed to design a happy, healthy learning environment, which will create eager and motivated dogs that are excited to learn.

PAWSitive Solutions’ innovative and entertaining approach to dog training has yielded amazing, long-lasting results and has earned the respect of many San Antonio and Boerne dog owners.

Her program will give owners the skills necessary to continue to shape their dog’s responses after his training with PAWSitive Solutions.

This helps keep your dog’s training consistent and always delivers the best results.

In-Home Canine Training

In-Home training provides the perfect way to train, working one-on-one with Marlene.

She will coach you through the steps in each lesson, then you practice with your dog until the next session.

This opens the door of communication between you and your dog and allows you to learn how to teach your dog basic commands, as well as solve common behavioral problems.

The key to solving behavioral problems is to understand what motivates your dog to act inappropriately.

Remember, we all repeat behaviors that are rewarding and avoid behaviors that are not. So we want to reward the positive behaviors and redirect the undesirable ones.

Your home is the perfect environment for conducting dog obedience training because it is your dog’s comfort zone.

By creating a focused, comfortable environment, Marlene believes dogs actually respond to training quicker.

Group Dog Training Classes

PAWSitive Solutions’ most economical form of dog training are the group classes. This brings owners and their dogs together, generating camaraderie and allowing them to see their dogs develop and grow as a group. However, this is a very distracting environment and may not be an option for everyone. Please, feel free to call Marlene to discuss if this is a good choice for your family.

Dog Training Group Classes are offered through The Boerne Parks & Recreation Department and Sessions run for six consecutive weeks. The first class is a two-hour orientation without your dog. The other classes are one hour. Semi-private classes are also available. If three or more friends want to train together, Marlene will teach a class for your group at the location of your choice.
