Our Dog Training Approach

Our dog training helps dog owners and their families with everything from puppyhood to solving behavioral problems using positive, force-free techniques. We work with you to identify your dog training goals and then turn your vision into reality. You will see your dog transform into an accelerated, enthusiastic learner. 

Naturally Pawsitive offers both in-home and virtual dog training. Private, in-home training is available along the Rocky Mountain Front Range Urban Corridor from Broomfield through Boulder to Longmont. We offer several training packages that we will customize to fit your specific needs. See below for package details. Virtual training is available from wherever you live.


Positive, Stress-free Training Options

Virtual Classes

Private virtual sessions cover a wide variety of training, everything from raising a new puppy to behavioral issues such as resource guarding or reactivity on walks.

Private Training

Private training, in your home, on your busy schedule. Train where your dog learns best.

Recent Feedback on our Training

Claudia is an amazing trainer. I’ve done both personal and group training for my dogs. She is patient and effective! Her classes are also fun, and she offers a variety of different options! I highly recommend bringing your dogs to Naturally Pawsitive.

Our first experience with Naturally Pawsitive was in July of 2018. We had recently got a 10 week old Cane Corso puppy, Banner. I knew that this time around I wanted to do positive reinforcement training and clicker training. I was convinced I could figure it out on my own and would have the perfect dog in a week! I soon realized I needed professional guidance and was so grateful to find Naturally Pawsitive... ...I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Claudia, both as a person and trainer...

We brought our two puppies to Claudia's Puppy Start Right class. She is incredibly patient with the puppies and their people and gave us all the tools we need to have polite dogs. We will continue with her Family Dog classes and would recommend her to our friends.

Claudia takes the time to listen and provide one-on-one guidance. She customizes to a family’s needs when it comes to dog training and dog assistance. Claudia is a wealth of knowledge about all things dog related and how to maximize not only your dog’s skills and behavior but also your human/dog relationship. One of the best things you’ll find about Claudia is constantly up to date with new information about new trends, tips and tricks. You’ll find her passion contagious!

I can’t say enough about Claudia, she is extremely intelligent and when it comes to canines, she is a dog whisperer. When I needed help with Peanut, a pup I was taking care of she helped in his training and everything from coat care, dental care, and so much more. You will not find a more committed person when it comes to quality positive training. I highly recommend her to anyone with any breed of dog!
