My gang

Don’t forget to come to the new Building! Starting…NOW! See info below and on the directions page under the “More” button!

Positive Dogs is doing in person classes and privates as well as virtual training. Even if you’re from out of state or out of the country, you can still join in using Zoom! FMI, click here Calling all Snow Birds and Full Timers! Click here!

Dogs do things we don’t like; they jump, they pull us down the street on leash, they bark, they don’t come when called. All of this can be frustrating. Don’t be embarrassed, let’s fix it!

We focus on both sides of the leash; training your dog good manners, empowering you with skills and confidence. We teach your dogs to be well behaved, replacing the behaviors that are driving you crazy with manners that will make you proud. We show you what’s possible and how you can have the dog you dream of!

I have a 3,600 square foot dog training facility in Washington, New Jersey.
We offer private training, group classes for all ages and specialty classes, plus convenient combination training packages.

Regular group classes for puppy k, beginners, advanced beginners, CGC (Canine Good Citizen), TDI (Therapy Dog), and most forms of competition (obedience, Rally, Agility), specialty classes including behavior modification and aggression. March 10: AKC just announced their new Trick Dog Titles.

August 1, 2021 New Building! I will be at 275 Route 31 North, in the LOWER level of the Mansfield Lodge No. 36, F&AM (Masonic Lodge) across from the Draughthouse bar and grill. All you have to do is GPS “Mansfield Lodge No. 36, F&AM, Washington, NJ” so it’s nice and easy to find and I’ll have A frame signs by the 2 driveways (it’s a circular driveway, so it doesn’t matter which one you use. Just drive behind the building and look for the wood door entrance)

Specialty classes of all kinds. (On the Road, Training the whistle recall, Competition obedience, Growl Class, and many more!).

Online Classes – Regular dog training subjects utilizing both text and videos for real time training online. All classes monitored by Pamela Dennison. Questions and interaction encouraged!

Privates and group classes for dogs with problem behaviors, including aggression.

Seminars on dog aggression, Rally and competition obedience, positive (clicker) dog training and how to properly “read” your dog; all at my training facility and at other facilities and dog clubs within an 8-hour driving distance.

Mission statement: To effectively teach dog owners how to build a positive relationship, erecting a line of communication with their dogs and train in a positive and non-punishing way to promote success in whatever their goals may be.

The Black and White Club: The video clips below are from what I call the Black and White Club. It is a walking group where some of my students and I get together and walk our dogs off leash in safe areas. Sometimes we just have a few dogs, sometimes a large crowd. Anyone is welcome to join us as long as your dog is good with other dogs, you have good off leash control (or you can start with leash dragging) and comes when called.

Comment from a YouTube viewer: This video made me feel so happy! I took my dogs on a “pack walk” a few months ago (the name alone should have made me realize it was a bad idea). Instead of hearing “good boy”, “good dog”, whistling, “yay!” and seeing treats being given out as shown in your video, there were constantly people screaming “no”, “get over here”, “stop that”, and zaps from e-collars being given out to non-compliant dogs. Your walk seemed like a ton of fun for the dogs. The “pack walk” was a stressful experience.
