Star Paws believes that every dog,
including those that have developed bad behaviors ranging from mild to
severe, if given the opportunity to be trained using positive reward
based methods, can become well mannered pets and live happily side by
side with their human companions. Positive Reward Based Training
is a humane approach to training a dog and requires a great deal of
patience on the part of the trainer (and owner) but the payoff is
enormous, often lending itself to an intelligent and confident dog who
is happy and content. It is the most effective and humane way to train a
dog and doesn't resort to any negative stimuli to get desired
Paws believes that it should be "all about the dog." If the dog is
trained humanely, given dignity, understanding and respect, the dog
will reward it's proud owner with a lifetime of unconditional love and
"There isn't a behavior that can't be learned or banished
using Positive Reward Based Training," says Star Paws owner and lead
trainer, Tammy. "The
method is based on giving the dog positive experiences. Every dog and
every situation is different but the method works if the trainer
thinks it through and approaches the problem from the perspective of the

guidance on how to handle their new rescue dog or puppy and what
direction to take from there to get them on the right training program.
