Inspire Canine Behavior Counseling & Training is proud to offer two specialty packages:
Learning through Paula is a completely eye-opening and life changing experience if you are choosing to interact or live with dogs. Her methods of behavioral training fundamentally “makes sense” and teach you how to be a lifelong canine guardian. As a dog lover and dog person, I never thought I would need help with dog training. However, when we adopted a traumatized rescue, we were warned by our vet that the dog may never be “normal” and her fear would likely turn to aggression as she matured. I didn’t understand what this fully meant, but I was scared for the safety of our family. I called countless trainers and fell victim to gimmicks and consultations scaring me that our dog was “untrainable”. After discussing with our vet, I learned we didn’t need basic dog training, we needed behavioral training. Our goal was not to train our dog to roll over and give high-fives, but to be happy, healthy, calm and safe in our home (with good manners, of course). I stumbled upon Paula based off her stellar reviews, and upon first conversation I felt a wave of relief. For the first time, someone understood the urgency and impact I needed. Paula was quick to act to support us, because she knew that our dog’s clock was ticking to nip behaviors from escalating. After not sleeping for a few weeks from worry, I was finally able to rest after our initial consultation.We did the Rescue Package with Paula, and I have to say – this is not like dog training on TV. The method is slow, methodical, and requires dedication. But it does sure pay off. We are seeing an entirely different dog after one month, and we have become entirely different dog people. Our dog that used to cower in a corner and was scared of men, now comes up to us with her tail wagging, lays next to us, and wants to play, even with the males in our house! The nuances in Paula’s method are extraordinary. Simple human behaviors that can make a canine react negatively are not common sense to us, even to experienced dog people! Paula understands all of this and is a gifted teacher. She is able to cut through human psychology to truly advocate for the canine species, and this leads to a wonderful balance of both species living happily together. We are excited to continue working with Paula. Our goal is to create a confident and happy dog home, so our rescue pup can thrive. We have more work to rehab our dog, but I am optimistic Paula’s method is going to get us to our goals.
Paula is THE dog whisperer! We lucked upon her and are so grateful. We got a new 50 lb 5 month puppy and had no clue what to do. She helped us crate train, integrate with our two existing cats, our two young boys and our new home. He has never had an accident indoors, he doesn’t chew on things he shouldn’t, he does “tricks” but most of all we have a loving and comfortable relationship with our new family member. Paula is patient, kind, empowering and individualized. I didn’t feel like a one size fits all and she provided so much more than we asked for! We wish she lived with us 🙂
The best money I’ve ever spent I wish I could continue it forever…. Paula has a real knack with animals, especially dogs and she explains the behavior so it makes sense to the human … she also happens to be a lovely person highly recommend her for your training issues??
