Flyball 1 Do you have a dog that LOVES (Really Loves) Tennis Balls???? If so, this is the class for you and your dog!! Flyball is fun and fast! It's essentially a competition between teams of dogs and handlers. On cue, the dogs are sent over 4 jumps. Then they push on a box that sends a tennis ball into the air. The dog grabs the ball in mid air and flies back across the jumps to the starting line and then the next dog in line takes his turn. The team with the fastest score WINS! But everyone has a fantastic time. Dogs must be at least 9 months of age, wear a plain buckle or snap-release collar and must be well socialized with other dogs. It's great fun...come join us! Don't think you can get your dog to to problem...we will show you how; just like we did with the dogs in these videos. None of them knew how to do it either when they started.Class size is limited. Basic Manners 1 is a prerequisite. NEW CLASS BEGINS ON THURSDSAY, MARCH 8th at 7:40pm 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, motivational 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 celebrated its 15th anniversary in the dog training business in 2017. We have been voted No. 1 for Best Dog Training on the A-List for eight years in a row and received First Place in the Pet Training category in the 2016 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Top Choice Awards - Best of Greater Milwaukee.
