Positive Dog Training 

Pet Sitting - in your home


Group Classes

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

We offer a variety of one on one and group training options including: puppy kindergarten, Jr. Puppy, 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 limited Pet Sitting Services (in your home), Board and Train (in your home) and Doggy Day Care options. When we stay with your pet, they are treated like one of our pack. Our core philosophy is that dogs live in homes and should be trained and boarded in homes whenever possible. We have limited capacity; therefore advanced reservations are required.  


SmartyPaws was founded in 2010 and has successfully worked with hundreds of dogs. We are located in St. Louis County and service the St Louis and Metro East areas by offering convenient pick up and drop off services.

Whether you are off to enjoy a weekend trip, away for the holidays or working out of town, our staff is happy to watch your furry family members. Give us a call to make a reservation for pet sitting or discuss your training needs.


You are welcome to set up a time to visit us and to meet our trainers. Appointments are required so that we can maintain a safe and peaceful space for your pet and our trainers.  

Pick up and drop off service is available.
