Dog Training Resources

Most training and behavior solutions can't be just read about. In order to fix problems, the owner must actively learn and practice new behaviors with a professional who can gently guide them along the right path.
The internet is full of dog behavior misinformation.
What makes it even more confusing for dog owners is that trainers hold different philosophies.
For many dog owners, it's nearly impossible to know if what you're reading on-line or in books is the truth, or if it can be helpful for your particular situation. I strongly recommend that you DO NOT attempt to educate yourself on a variety of internet resources. You can't know if your search is turning up reputable information or not.
The one site that will never steer you wrong is
This site is full of FREE information and it is all considered 'gospel' in the realm of training and behavior.
Please don't waste your time searching and attempting to decipher what's true and what's not. Trust Dr. Sophia Yin's guidance and hire a trusted trainer for hands-on help ASAP.

Walking Services
Are you disabled, elderly or unable to walk your dog? Please don't consider paying neighborhood kids to do this. Off-leash dogs are a problem in every neighborhood. Asking kids to walk your dog is setting both the kids and the dog up for potential disaster.
Passion Fur Paws is a professional dog walking and pet-sitting business. It's worth your while to pay professionals to handle your dog(s) so that the walk is always a positive experience, an effective training session, and safe for both the dogs and the humans.
Visit Passion Fur Paws website at for the perfect walk and trustworthy pet-sitting services.
