ADOLESCENT & ADULT DOGS
As the parent of an adolescent or adult dog, you may now be asking yourself:
"what happened to my sweet puppy?",
"why can't my dog just listen?!",
or, "what's the best way to settle in my new rescue?"
Proud Paws will create a perfectly customized training package for you and your dog that will address your specific needs and goals and set you up with piece of mind that you will be fully supported as you begin your new learning journey together.
No matter the age or breed, it's never too too late to implement good routines into daily life with your dog. Teaching them how to be proficient with instructions relevant to your lifestyle not only serves to instill healthy manners and boundaries, but also confidence and security for you and your family.

Proud Paws takes a great deal of care and sensitivity in working with the fearful dog, assisting parents in developing techniques for your loved one feel more confident in the world around them.
