We provide and apply the most up-to-date scientific research in dog training and ethology. For many people, adopting or buying a puppy is a new experience, or maybe you just haven’t had a puppy to care for in a long time. Learn all there is to know about puppies, proper husbandry and upbringing to avoid costly behavior problems down the road. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Let Fun Paw Care’s puppy experts get you off on the right paw to a long lasting, fulfilling bond that will span a lifetime. Set your puppy up for success with a first class training session and begin to freshen up on some of the following skills and information. When should you start training? Yesterday! There is no “too early” to start training; the earlier the better. Just some of the many areas we will discuss and teach are:
There are many things to think about when bringing home a puppy for the first time. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) says that early socialization is essential to a happy and well-adjusted puppy. We have offered our services in Miami for many years and have expanded to serve pets throughout Broward, Palm Beach and Venice Beach California. We are here to guide you through every step of the training process. The age of 3 weeks – 13 weeks is a sensitive/ critical learning period. Research shows that behaviors learned during this time frame have a tendency to stick throughout the puppy’s life more than at any other age. It is therefore critical to put your pup on the path to success, and to train, educate and socialize them within this highly influential time frame.
For all of your pet behavior needs, Fun Paw Care will be there to teach you and your puppy all there is to know about training and behavior. You can rely on Fun Paw Care to offer the most up-to-date scientifically proven, positive reinforcement, gentle approach to start your relationship off on the right paw for the rest of your puppy’s life. Training is vital for a well-balanced, healthy, long and happy life with your pup. Do not let distance stop you from receiving a world class education and master trainer. Fun Paw Care’s trainers will travel to your home or will video, telephone and/or teach remote puppy classes for out of town families. Fun Paw Care’s Certified Dog Behavior Consultants and Certified Professional Dog Trainers provide a one-on-one sophisticated service in the privacy of your own home.
A percentage of all Fun Paw Care sales goes toward volunteering and giving back via animal advocacy: rescuing and fostering homeless puppies and cats, and giving back via free community educational seminars.
We apply all of our skills to help train your dogs no matter how old they are. Our dog training services use force free, gentle techniques to help your pet behave better and become more responsive. Pet parents are also taught how to communicate with their dogs, so that all training may be reinforced at home, and the person-dog relationship can grow stronger.

I’ve not seen a trainer with his level of experience and ability in my almost 20 years of practice in South Florida. For the people and pets that make up the South Beach Animal Hospital family, there’s no one we trust more with training, care and behavior issues than Russell and Fun Paw Care…
