Group Classes Private Classes Boarding School Trained Puppies
Welcome to training your pup the Pawsh way!
Pawsh's long awaited training services are finally underway! We have searched long and far for the perfect professional trainer to add to our team, and we have found the perfect match! We are incredibly excited to introduce Grace Komatz. We are now offering group classes, private classes (both at the Pawsh facility and In Home), day stay and train, and board and train packages. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to sign up for any of these services!
The PAWSH way is the LIMA way! We believe in evidence based behavior modification techniques to help owners and dogs better their communication and relationship with their dogs while correcting problem behaviors.
What Is LIMA?
“LIMA” is an acronym for the phrase “least intrusive, minimally aversive”. LIMA describes a trainer or behavior consultant who uses the least intrusive, minimally aversive strategy out of a set of humane and effective tactics likely to succeed in achieving a training or behavior change objective with minimal risk of producing aversive side effects. LIMA adherence also requires consultants to be adequately educated and skilled in order to ensure that the least intrusive and aversive procedure is used.

**Note from the trainer**
My personal philosophy on dog training is that the easiest method to achieve your goals is usually the best. I help owners work smarter, not harder, to find their dogs' path of least resistance: making training easy and fun for everyone! Here at PAWSH Parker we use the LIMA method of training. The majority of the skills you will learn with us will utilize positive reinforcement, but this is not always sufficient for success in training. We will teach you how and when to implement all 4 quadrants of behavior modification.

Puppies will need to have an adjustment period while they learn their new environment & people. This may take a few days up to a few weeks. Before you take your new puppy home you will be asked to schedule a session with our head trainer. This session is meant to assist you as your puppy assimilates into its new life with you and will include instructions and explanations on your puppy's schedule, nuances and routines. Please expect some transition issues with your puppy in the first few weeks as they are still young and will need some time to properly adjust. Please understand that we have built a solid training foundation for your puppy but training never really ends with any dog! They will need practice and reinforcement until at least 1 to 2 years of age. If your puppy has not met our expectations by the time their graduation date arrives, they will be kept in the training program free of charge until they have satisfied the expectation.
