I view dog training less in terms of control and more in terms of companionship. There should be some give and take. We control 90% (or more) of our dogs lives and finding ways in which we can give them a little control in their lives is key. It is our job to help them make good decisions and we can accomplish that through reward based training!



Coaching dog guardians on best practices to create an environment where their dog feels safe and secure through meeting their dogs needs, managing the environment and training with positive reinforcement.



A world where dogs are treated with kindness and empathy. Where it is understood that this current world is not their natural environment and when adopting a dog, helping them navigate the current world with patience and understanding is the job that has been chosen as a guardian to one of these beautiful creatures.


Methods & FAQ

Here at Curipawsity we like to approach dog training with...curiosity! Instead of looking at a behavior and labeling it "good" or "bad", we view it as communication. We ask "why" for everything. Why is my dog chewing on my shoes? Why is my dog digging in the garden? Why is my dog barking at the neighbors? Looking to the root of the problem will help us better understand our dog and create a training and management plan that will meet our dogs needs and help them start making better decisions for themselves!

We do not use any aversive gear including but not limited too: e-collars, shock collars, prong collars, choke collars, citronella collars or anything else intended to cause pain or frustration for your dog.

We train new behaviors using treats, play, praise, environmental rewards or anything else your dog loves!

We are also always highly aware of your dogs body language and strive to never create an environment where your dog feels uncomfortable or fearful as science has shown that learning stops or at least slows incredibly when we are fearful or frustrated.

The safety and security of yourself, your dog and anyone else involved, is our number one goal.
