Our program at Paw Commons takes a Balanced method approach to training your dog.

What is Balanced Method? Here at Paw Commons we are not tied to any one approach to train your dog. WHY? Because every dog is different. By using a multitude of different methods that work with your dog’s specific behavior and response, we can achieve the best results. This approach gives us a large number of training aids to achieve the proper Behavior Modification.
