Helping Families Have Well Behaved Dogs in Bucks & Montgomery Counties

Your dog is your best friend.  Even more than your best friend, he is family but sometimes his behavior frustrates or even worries you.  When your dog joined the family, you pictured snuggling together on the couch and long walks in the park but reality just is not matching up to your dreams.  You just want your dog to be happy, calm and well behaved but you aren’t sure how to make it happen.

At Best Paw Forward Dog Training, we specialize in training your dog to fit into your lifestyle.  Whether it’s learning to behave at home, walking nicely on the leash or overcoming bigger challenges like fear, shyness or even aggression, the dog trainers at Best Paw Forward are ready and able to help you.  Our training methods are easy to use and work for ANY dog. We make training fun for you and your dog so that you can enjoy your time together!

We have two great program types to choose from:

Private in home dog training

Does your family want to be involved in the learning process?  Our private lessons take place in your home (or even in public) and give you and your dog the personalized attention you need to solve unwanted behaviors and create good habits quickly.

Dog Board and Train

Do you have a busy schedule and aren’t sure how to fit in dog training for your best friend?  Our boarding and training option makes it easy. By sending your dog to our house, you’ll get a personalized jump start on having the best behaved dog in the neighborhood.

Why Choose Us?

Because we do this for you! Above all else, we love working with people and seeing their joy when they have a well-behaved dog as a companion.  Our dog training focuses on making sure your dog isn’t the only one learning but that the training makes sense to you.

We’ve used our many years of professional dog training experience to create all-inclusive training programs to fit the needs of every client.  Our ideal clients want to be involved in the process and have a genuine joy of learning how their dog thinks and the best ways to change unwanted behaviors.

We had a wonderful experience with Best Paw Forward and would highly recommend Jamie and Michael! Although we were initially a little unsure of what to expect from behavioral training, we were pleased with Best Paw Forward from the minute Jamie and Michael came to our house for Ted’s first session. We could immediately see how passionate they are about their work and we saw noticeable progress in Ted’s listening and responsiveness to commands before the first session ended. The training sessions were enjoyable for both us and our dog—the fun and rewarding dynamic that Michael created made it seem like more of a playdate. It was clear that Ted enjoyed working with them as much as we did. Thanks to Best Paw Forward, we have been able to enjoy our relationship with our dog even more than before. We can’t thank Jamie and Michael enough, and we know Ted highly recommends them too!

Our family can't say enough about the great experience we have had with Best Paw Forward and Michael and Jamie! Before we sent our Golden Retriever Crosby to board and train with Best Paw Forward, he was always jumping, mouthing and practicing some very bad habits. Michael and Jamie successfully instilled some manners in our pup, gave him focus and taught him some essential commands to make life with a puppy and 4 kids a little more sane. Crosby came back to our home happy, focused and eager to show off his new skills. Michael and Jamie spent so much time with our entire family making sure we had the same success with Crosby's behavior as they did. They gave us the tools, skills and advice we needed to keep up with Crosby's training at home. Michael and Jamie encourage us to contact them with any issues - which is comforting knowing their assistance doesn't end when the training period ends, they will continue to provide support. We have and will continue to highly recommend Best Paw Forward to anyone seeking training for their dog!puppy training classes Warminster Pa

My wife and I purchased a larger dog shortly after the holidays. We love our new dog but had concerns about training an American Bulldog, since we have always had smaller dogs. Michael and Jamie came to our house and taught us the important basics related to sitting, staying, greeting people, walking and overall good manners. We have had 6 dogs over the past 30 years and never really learned how to train a dog. Michael is a great guy who teaches with patience. I spoke with several trainers prior to meeting Best Paw Forward. Most of the other trainers overwhelmed us. With Best Paw Forward, we felt comfortable and had a great experience. Our dog is 5 months old now and we have seen great results with Best Paw Forward's training techniques. We highly recommend Best Paw Forward.
