Best trainer I have ever had the pleasure to work with!!! I rescue pit bulls and have issues from time to time that can mean the difference between adoption, forever home , or not a positive outcome. She answered all my concerns and will be working soon with my entire pack. More...

Without a doubt, I highly recommend Christina. From the second she met my pup, it was obvious he loved her & she loved him! The tricks & tips she gave me changed my hyper 8 month old puppy into such a loveable cuddle bug after about a month! Thanks, Christina!! More...

I literally cannot say enough wonderful things about Christina. She is the ONLY reason I was able to keep my pit rescue, Raider. He is my first rescue but one of several dogs I've had. Needless to say, I didn't know what I was getting myself into upon initial adoption. Even the day after adopting him I was calling the shelter in a panicked state with so many unexpected issues surfacing. They recommended I "take him back". After researching it, I found out that he'd be automatically unadoptable if I did so and decided against it. The trainer at the shelter recommended Christina and THANK GOODNESS! Almost two years later (still happily working with Christina on different issues - we all have them, so do dogs, such is life), Raider is getting along with Reiley (the cat), is unrecognizably happy compared to his shelter mess, and has made so many fantastic improvements - I cannot picture my household being the same without him. Christina genuinely loves dogs and wants them to be happy/succeed with their families. I worked with a "top" trainer in Philadelphia that did NOTHING and was a HUGE mistake/waste of money. Christina will be the only trainer I ever contact with any dog going forward. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE, CHRISTINA!!!! :) More...

I have referred Christina to families that have reached out asking for trainer recommendations. She is prompt in communicating...trustworthy... very knowledgeable... and honest. She is the real deal with a kind personality to go with it. I am thankful to know her. More...

My Lucas and Lola love Christina! She has babysat over night a few times for us. I hate leaving my babies but knowing they are in trusting and loving hands puts my mind at ease. Lucas also loved his play date and so did I! He was so exhausted when he came home he wasn't tormenting his sister. He definitely will be doing it again soon! More...

Christina of Paws & Obey has the 3 R's in our book- responsible, reliable and reasonable. Our pets love her and always have a smile on their face whether she comes to care & train them or take them on play dates! We trust Christina with our pets and they are our 4 pawed furkids! If you are looking for your pet to get the same attention as they would if you were home give her a call! She loves all pets and treats them as her own!! More...

I highly recommend Christina. She truly loves dogs and they are in the best care when they are with her. Whatever service you are looking for-dog walking, dog training, dog sitting or dog socialization-Christina is the best in the business. Your pet will be well taken care of and they will love Christina as much as Christina loves them. Christina is trust worthy, reliable, kind, patient, and knowledgable. More...

My dogs get so excited to spend time with Christina!! She sends a ton of pictures, so I can see what they're up to. I can genuinely say I feel confident my boys are taken care of, and I don't need to worry.

We met with Christina last night and I can say begin to say how much she helped us! She was so useful on retraining us as the parents of two Pittbulls as well as them. She showed us in a few steps how we can control situations correctly and more effectively. She taught us how to be better parents and taught us how to properly train our pups. She answered all of our questions and was very detailed. We love the fact that she traveled to our home so she can see what we are accustomed to. She did not rush the meeting. I truly felt like she cared and wanted to help. We own a stereotype bad breed dogs so it was reassuring that she jumped right in and helped us. I would recommend her to anyone of my friends family strange etc. I am grateful we found each other and thank you again! More...

Christina is fantastic. She understands each dog individually and you can tell she loves being around the dogs. She can read each dog and tailors the training as needed.

We met with Christina a few weeks ago with our 15 month old Lab Sealey. She was so friendly, candid & helpful. We were very impressed with how knowledgeable she was. Every question we asked she had an answer for, that made so much sense! We were having a problem getting Sealey into his cage. Not only did she get him in immediately, now we have no problem doing it ourselves. Thanks so much for your help. We would recommend paws and obey to anyone that cares enough about their dogs to reach out for help. More...

Christina is the BEST. She is amazing with aggressive/agitated dogs like mine and has extensive experience with tough cases. After just one short session, instant behavioral results were achieved and sustained for our dog. She provided us with the training guidance we needed to begin correcting our dog's behavioral issues. Looking forward to continued training and long-term results! More...

We boarded our small Yorkie for a couple of nights during our wedding. We were extremely nervous, but we were so happy to hear that he was having just as much fun as we were celebrating our special day! Very, very clean, professional, and reliable. 5+ stars More...

The talent and patience of Christina is amazing. Not only does she teach the dogs but gives the owners the tools and guidance to work with. She took our scared little rescue Stitch and and taught him to trust and respond to people and animals alike. I would highly recommend her for any training problems and she is also such a caring person who makes you feel like a new friend More...

Q&A

Working with dogs every day is the most rewarding experience ever. Helping owners learn how to effectively communicate with their dogs and seeing the excitement and happiness they have when they see their dog make major progress is the best thing ever!

Working at a local animal shelter as the Behavior & Transport Coordinator, I saw so many dogs being surrendered for things that could easily be fixed with training. After talking with these frustrated and sad owners I was inspired to start my own training business so that I could help keep dogs in their homes.

My experience working with all breeds, ages and behavioral issues as well as my knowledge base and ability to adapt to different situations.
