Pam was great to work with! She was very patient with our high energy leash pulling beagle. Tips she gave us to reduce her leash pulling were helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend again! More...

You might be able to find dog trainers everywhere, but it's rare that you find one like Pam from Down4Paws. Pam goes over and above for her 4-legged clients (and their humans! ). Her kindness, caring nature, and genuine love for dogs are obvious, and her professionalism is first class! I highly recommend Pam! More...

Pam is an amazing trainer. Pam help me to understand the needs and the basic  knowledge  to the training of my 4 month old puppy.

I couldn't be any happier with our progress.I would highly recommend Pam at  Down 4 Paws  to anyone who needs some support in all training needs. More...

Having a puppy is fun. But having a trained, responsive , and manageable puppy is GREAT! We would not be as relaxed, confident and well-rested as we are without Down4Paws training. Pam is a pro, she makes quick progress and has patience for working with family members of all ages. We would very much use Down4Paws again! More...

Pam is an AMAZING person and dog trainer! She is extremely responsive and great at troubleshooting various solutions to issues that pop up during the training process. She is always patient with our puppy and with us and our kids. Pam involves the entire family in the training process, which we felt was unique when searching for a trainer. We have 3 young children, ranging in age from two to seven, and she was able to seamlessly differentiate instruction so everyone understood and could participate. After working with Pam for 5 weeks, our puppy is able to seamlessly perform all of the obedience tasks she taught in training. We have decided to go even further with our training because the results we have seen already have been met beyond our expectations. I would recommend Pam without ANY hesitation for anyone looking for a reliable trainer with proven results! More...

My 9 month old golden doodle puppy ‘Sailor’ and I had the pleasure of working with Pam to train my boy and he has made great progress with the the commands presented to him in five short weeks. Pam is awesome. She also helped train me on how to handle Sailor as he is a very high strung force. He has been trained to go to his mat, wait and leave it commands as well as training him to walk on the leash without pulling. I will be joking the puppy class later this month and I’m thrilled that Pam will be doing the training. More...

We hired Pam for basic training for our boxer. She is a true professional who actually cares about the dogs she trains.  Receiving a write up after each training was a great help. Pam always had plenty of tips for each subject of the training. It was great to have a trainer who was willing to adapt if we changed the training topics. if you are looking for a trainer who will provide exactly what you want she is the person for you!!!!!!

Pam is an amazing dog trainer! I’m so glad I found her to work with my two Frenchie’s! I was looking Into training for Ollie when he showed fear and lunging towards strangers. Pam was was patient, knowledgeable and made an instant connection with Ollie. She not only gained his trust she helped him gain the confidence he needed to be the dog we all know he is. He not only has confidence on walks, but he enjoys meeting new people and even does a happy dance in the halls. I’m so grateful for the time she has spent teaching Ollie. Ollie cannot wait for training part 2. 💜 More...

We sought out Pam after seeing some undesirable behavior with our 2 year old dog. In not much time, we saw drastic improvements! Pam is relaxed and kind and I think the dogs really picked up on that. She is so knowledgable and her approach is positive and fun. We couldn’t be happier with the results she helped us achieve! More...

Pam is so gifted, kind, knowledgeable, punctual, and professional! I reached out to her for behavior modification and basic training of our newly adopted 14-month-old dog. These are the teenage years when they test a lot and we were all acclimating to each other. From our first assessment session our dog (and we) learned a ton and Pam gave us plenty of tips for moving forward. We booked 5 more sessions and we saw our dog's behavior, and our ability to react appropriately to misbehavior, improve immensely. There were improvements with jumping, counter surfing, leash walking, recall, and "leave it," to name a few. Pam personalizes every session, provides really helpful session summaries and handouts, and is available always for questions. We're going to sign up for a group class with her this summer, too. 12/10 recommend Pam and Down4Paws! More...
