We're so happy with the love and care that Michael and Jamie (and Michael) gave to our two boxers. We were looking for training in a home environment and Best Paw Forward fit the bill. When Sugar Ray and Jab came home after their in-house training, Michael spent time with us teaching us the best way to get our babies to understand and correctly respond to our needs. I could see he had such an affection for the boxers and they absolutely loved him. Thanks, Michael, Jamie and Michael. We're looking forward to further classes!
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. He spends extra time at no charge and is very responsive. 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.Bob & Melissa with Farrah
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! The Keeffe FamilyThe Keefe Family with Crosby
My wife and I have been using Best Paw Forward's services since July of 2015, when we realized our
Our dog Rufus would become very upset whenever anyone visited our house, and he would remain on edge during their visit. Jamie and Michael worked with Rufus in our house. Jamie and Michael were able to get Rufus to be less anxious and more accepting. In addition, they gave me many good insights into Rufus's behavior. Now we are able to have guests in our home without the problems we used to experience.Tom with Rufus
I have used Best Paw Forward now for 5 sessions now. I was shocked to see how fast and seemingly painless it was for the trainers at this organization to not only teach my Lab manners and respect, but to also train myself on how to keep the motions fluid and ongoing to continue the learning process for my pup. These trainers opened my eyes to how easy the training process is with the correct direction, patience, and instruction. What stood out the most was they not only walked me through what I should be doing, but WHY I should be doing it. I originally assumed that I was just dealing with an excited Lab puppy and was just going to have to wait 2 years until I saw any bit of obedience from her. Best Paw Forward proved me wrong and then some. They not only helped me now when I needed it, but most importantly, they gave me the tools to continue the training for years to come. I received the contact of Best Paw Forward direct from my Vet since I trust them more than anyone with my dog. I can honestly say it was the best choice for Rigby (our furry family member), Fiance, and myself. I would highly recommend this orginazation for their fantastic and personal training services. -- Ryan & AllisonRyan & Allison with Rigby

I can't say enough about Best Paw Forward! My family adopted a lab mix from a rescue. Panther was very good natured, but a very, very rough and exuberant player. My four daughters (all under 10) could not have friends over because of Panther's jumping and rough play. We reached out to Michael and Jamie for help. They boarded and trained Panther in their home for two weeks, during which they kept us up to date with her progress through phone calls, texts, photos and videos through Facebook. Her quick progress was AMAZING! She came back to us a different dog. She was still full of
Our Puggle Puppy " Dixie" just spent last week with Jamie and Michael for board and train. Strange just handing your pet over to strangers, but so glad we did. Jamie and Michael did an amazing job training with Dixie. She learned to sit, stay,
