Canine Training Center

Training Center temporarily closed starting August 24th


(Silverdale Only) - We partner with two incredible local dog trainers!

Noel Ritter, owner of Guiding Hands Pet Obedience, is our Lead Trainer.  Noel offers all levels of group classes on Mondays and Wednesdays.   Private lessons are available with Noel every Monday through Friday. During our temporary closure, Noel can be reached directly at noelritter@comcast.net.

Josette Stenbom, owner of Pup Pawsitive, offers Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 group classes daily from Monday through Saturday.  Private lessons are available with Josette on Saturdays.

Group Class Offerings

Our group classes are organized into five training levels that provide you with a more customized experience.  Each class session is six weeks in length, with an additional make-up class at the end.  You don't have to miss a class to attend the make-up, so it's actually like getting seven classes for the price of six!  Our Training Center is 1800 square foot in size, which allows every handler plenty of practice room.  Additionally, each class is limited to a maximum of 8 students for a more personal training experience. 

Due to our small class sizes, we do require payment at time of registration to guarantee your seat.  Registration for new classes typically opens when the current session reaches Week 6.  Class refunds are available with a minimum 24 hour request before the first class begins.  Refunds provided after class begins is at the sole discretion of the trainer in charge.

Not sure which class is right for you?  Wondering if that pulling and barking is aggression or just bad behavior?  Our trainers offer 15-minute evaluations for $15 to help you identify issues and determine if group classes or private lessons are the best option.

Puppy Training

Registering in young puppy classes at 4 months of age can be a superb means of boosting training, reinforcing the human-animal bond, and mingling puppies in a setting where the threat of health problem can be reduced. As a whole, young puppies can start puppy socializing as very early as 7-8 weeks old. Puppy socialization classes supply a secure and organized way of socializing pups and also more quickly enhance their responsiveness to requests. Early and also ample pup socialization, as well as programs of positive pet dog training, can go a long way to preventing habits problems as well as improving bonding between humans and also pet dogs. While the first three months is one of the most vital puppy socializing duration in a pup's life, proprietors of pups that have actually passed this milestone are strongly motivated to continue to socialize their young puppies to lots of people, family pets, as well as areas as useful.

House Breaking & Potty Training

House training your pup is about consistency, perseverance, and positive reinforcement. The goal is to impart great practices and construct a caring bond with your pet dog.

Experts advise that you begin home training your pup when they are in between 12 weeks and 16 weeks old. At that point, they have adequate control of their bladder as well as bowel movements to learn to hold it. With Naturally 4 Paws's expertise, we give you the tools as well as techniques to ideal house train your new furever friend.

Beginner Training

Beginner training for pet dogs is crucial. Pet dogs intend to please, so with these beginner approaches and also techniques, they will provide your dog's chances to make you satisfied. Our programs start with the typical sit, stay and come. But as your pet dog advances, we offer much more challenging demands that are supplied in our other programs! These are created to keep your pet involved as well as on their toes.
