From Our Website
read morePaws Abilities Dog Training was founded in 1999 and was the first training company to bring clicker training techniques to the southeast Minnesota area. We believe in helping people enjoy their dogs through training and behavior modification, with an emphasis on scientifically valid and proven techniques. Our trainers keep up-to-date on the latest research and are members of professional organizations such as the Association for Professional Dog Trainers. Unlike some trainers, we love both ends of the leash and are excited to work with the whole family to help you achieve the great family pet or competition dog you've always dreamed of!
