Fun Paw Care offers comprehensive, premier pet care and dog training classes Miami pet parents rely on. We offer a sophisticated array of obedience training and behavior modification consultations, as well as puppy training classes. In our top-notch boarding and training service your pet will begin to behave better, become well trained, be happy, fulfilled, and stimulated while you’re away so that you return home to a well-mannered and better behaved dog.

Puppies can be a handful, but our puppy training classes will help make them better behaved so that they become better companions. We teach your pup great manners and habits, how to act, curb biting , potty training and teaching them desirable behaviors. Equally important, we help puppy parents learn the best way to communicate with their puppy to get incredible results from our training.

Fun Paw Care does not teach aversive dog training methods or practice dominance theory.

Daily Dog Walking & Training

Daily Dog Walking & Training is an excellent way to practice your dog’s skills and good manners. While on their daily walk, Fun Paw Care’s assistant dog trainer or veterinary technician will work with your pet to instill the obedience and/or behavior modification plan laid out by Russell. During this customized service, good manners and obedience will be reinforced through Russell’s positive reinforcement, science-based, and force free methods .This is a great way for your pup to get extra practice with basic skills such as sit, down, stay, heel, and come. With consistent and repetitive dog training classes, Miami dogs are able to learn quickly and retain this knowledge, leading to a lifetime of obedience.

Dog Behavior Modification

We often solve problems that other dog trainers and behaviorists are not willing to take on or cannot fix. We utilize the science of learning theory, ethology (scientific knowledge of species-specific behavior) and cognitive ethology to help clients improve their pet’s behavior. If you are at your wits end and need a behavioral problem solved, you have come to the right place. This service is appropriate for mild to serious types of dog behavior problems and disorders. Our methods are humane, non-confrontational and designed to decrease household stress and improve the human-animal bond. We utilize non-aversive, positive reinforcement and gentle methods to modify your dog’s behavior. We educate owners how to recognize, handle and modify their body language, behavior, energy and environment which helps your dog learn at the fastest rate possible. In many cases, this change along with our scientific, positive reinforcement approach is the realization and key to rehabilitating your dog in the shortest amount of time and restoring balance and harmony in your relationship. Our scientific approach, gentle, force-free methods and positive reinforcement combines operant conditioning, classical conditioning, counter conditioning, desensitization, and habituation and is successful in treating mild or severe cases of fear-based, aggression and problem behaviors such as:

  • House Training (house breaking/house soiling)
  • Leash Pulling
  • Destructive Behavior indoors and/or outdoors
