Outdoor Adventures Do you have a dog that does great in the classroom but when you take him for a walk, all bets are off? He suddenly forgets his name, and acts like he has never hear the word COME or LEAVE IT or HEEL ever before in his life. Then this class is for you and your dog. We start week 1 in the classroom but quickly head to the great outdoors to finish up week 1. Then, the rest of the classes are held at different outdoor locations around the area (downtown Hartland, Delafield, Pewaukee, Waukesha) where they will come in contact with other people walking their dogs, children, you name it; the real world! This class is dependent on Mother Nature which means that if it rains, the class will be cancelled and we will add one on to the end.Class size is very limited! Basic Manners and Level 2 Manners are both prerequisites.

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 sixth year in a row in 2014.
