Shy Dog So you have a shy dog. Shy dogs come in every size, age and breed or mix of breeds. A shy dog needs confidence and training especially designed for them. The goal of this class is to provide techniques to allow you to desensitize and counter condition their fear making scary/new things fun and positive. We work at getting them to actually change their emotional state. Class size is limited. Class begins Thursday, November 13th at 6:15pm in our Pewaukee location.

Our Training Philosophy
Training is the most important thing you will ever do for your dog. How you approach training will forever affect the relationship between you and your dog.
We believe in positive, force-free training methods, which have been tested to show great results. We use a reward-based training approach that makes the learning experience fun for the dog and will ensure that your dog will put its "best paw forward", listening to and obeying your commands. We keep our classes fun for both dogs and owners while learning in a friendly, positive environment.
Best Paw Forward, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in the dog training business in 2012, was named No. 1 for Best Dog Training on the WISN-TV A-List for the fifth year in a row in 2013.
