PAWS Training Academy is the leading school using hands-on methods to train Assistance Dog and Service Dog trainers. We’ve been training Assistance and Service Dogs for more than 13 years. We draw on this depth of experience to prepare students to train dogs to work in educational, rehabilitation, and care facilities and to help individual clients cope with the everyday challenges of living with disabilities. Throughout the program our students work directly with dozens of dogs with varying skills and temperaments and trained to assist with a diverse set of needs. They’ll also have the opportunity to work with and talk with dozens of current Assistance Dog owners and clients with Service Dogs. We offer intensive, concentrated training that prepares our graduates to train dogs to the highest level of performance. Our graduates are certified to a standard that exceeds the requirements of Assistance Dogs International. If you want to use your skills as a dog trainer to make a real difference in your world PAWS Training Academy will show you how.
In the first training book of its kind, internationally renowned dog trainer Sean O’Shea takes a unique look at the often misunderstood dynamics of the human/dog relationship. He explores where we go wrong, why we go wrong, and most importantly, how through a clearer understanding of both species, we can make it right again.
