Sharon Penny
Trainer and Manager

Positive Paws is exactly what it says "POSITIVE". Before  coming to work here, my dogs were trained by another organization that called themselves Positive trainers. They were trained with pronged collars, not knowing any better and thinking it was ok. After coming to positive paws and learning what real positive and FORCE-FREE training is all about, I started feeling really bad about my dogs experience and understood why they were feeling fearful and stressed, After just a few months of POSITIVE Training with my dogs, using FORCE-FREE techniques, my dogs are now happier, healthier, and a lot less fearful.
Nothing negative is taught here, allowing a safe environment for your dog. Your K-9 is OUR K-9 here at Positive Paws.

Sharon is an approved Evaluator for the American Kennel Club C.G.C and Puppy All Star Program and T.P.U (Therapy Pets Unlimited) Sharon is also a member of the Association of Dog Trainers.
