Pet Sitting

In-Home Training

SmartyPaws provides positive dog training effectively trains your dog while developing a stronger bond between you and your pet. Training can take place at your home, or at a mutually agreed location. Our trainers are Karen Pryor certified and have years of hands on experience.  

We offer a variety of training options including: basic manners, tricks, Canine Good Citizen (CGC), socialization, nose work, and behavior modification. Training sessions can be customized based on your specific needs.  


SmartyPaws also offers Pet Sitting which can be combined with training. When we stay with your pet, they are treated like one of our own. Advanced reservations are required as pet sitting is offered on a limited basis.
