Since 2001, 4Paws University has been teaching dog owners to understand and work with their dogs' training challenges and behavior problems.
Developed by Lisa Mullinax, CPDT-KSA, 4Paws University promotes training methods that follow the guidelines set forth by:
More than 3,500 dogs and over 150 breeds have come through 4Paws University since 2001. From Poodles to Pit Bulls, Dachsunds to Dobermans, even Westies to Wolfdogs, we have worked with a wide range of breeds and temperaments.
Dog training has changed a lot since we first started, as the science of learning and behavior have increased our knowledge of dogs. Dog owners now know it is unnecessary to use methods that rely on punshment and are seeking out reward-based training services more than ever before. Reward-based training uses positive reinforcement to build good behavior using smart, practical strategies to promote good behavior and change even the most serious problem behaviors.
Reward-based training automatically adapts to any dog or any behavior, eliminating the need for shock collars, prong collars, or other aversive tools and methods of the past. Regardless of breed or behavior.
Knowledge is the ultimate form of dominance
