Why is Paw & Hand Obedience your best choice for obedience training Central PA?
The purpose of obedience training is to create understanding and communication between dog and owner, so that both species can live together in cooperation and peace.  At Paw & Hand Obedience, we help improve communication and improve cooperation for hundreds of students and their dogs each year.  Our goal is to teach you to train your own dog, enabling the human-canine bond to deepen, and causing problem dogs to often become a pleasure.  

Paw & Hand's training methods are straightforward and effective.  We use motivational but simple methods to first show dogs how to respond properly to each of the basic commands without the use of force.  Once the dogs fully understand what is asked of them, we strive to teach owners how to always be clear, concise, consistent and fair as the dogs learn how to obey commands willingly and reliably.  Paw & Hand's system makes the learning experience fun and enjoyable for both dogs and owners.  We are passionate about obedience, we love to train, our dogs love to train, and we love to share that passion with our students.

Common behavioral problems can be addressed at the beginning of each class, during a brief question and answer period.   You may be surprised to find, though, that many behavioral problems will be eliminated simply by channeling your dog's physical and mental energy into obedience training.

Before the start of each six-week session, Paw & Hand conducts a free orientation to discuss our training philosophy and guidelines for training with us. After the informative lecture, a demonstration of all levels of obedience training is given by students and staff of Paw & Hand.  Everyone--prospective students, current students, or anyone who is even just curious about us --is welcome to attend.

We offer small classes and private lessons in both Basic/Manners/Pet obedience (AKC STAR Puppy/Puppy K, Basic, Beyond Basic (CGC), Advanced Basic (CGCA), and Urban Dog (CGCU) as well as competition obedience training in AKC, UKC and CDSP.  Tricks Class where you can earn AKC Tricks titles is offered every session.  Therapy Dog and Handler is offered 2 or 3 times per year.  Farm Dog, Off Leash obedience and Intro/Fun Agility classes are in the planning stages!  
We can keep you and your dog busy and having FUN together for a long time!
