Paws Abilities Dog Training (507) 624-0190

Do you want:

A happy dog who always
comes when called?
A polite pup who greets
others appropriately?
A lifelong companion
you can be proud
to take anywhere?

We can show you how!

We are committed to serving Rochester, Southeastern Minnesota, and the Twin Cities with the finest dog training available.

Our training techniques are humane, effective, and fun for dog and owner. We use the same scientifically sound training methods that professional animal trainers use in zoos and aquariums worldwide.

We offer something for everyone!

  • Start your dog off on the right paw with puppy and obedience classes for a lifetime of companionship and good habits.
  • Looking for more personal help or dealing with a serious behavior issue? A Private Training Consult may be the answer.
  • We offer a wide range of classes for every dog and parent. Check out Canine Agility or Tricks Class for maximum fun, or enroll in a Canine Good Citizen course to improve obedience skills. We can even help aggressive dogs learn to be calm and non-reactive on walks with our Growl classes! Check out our Classes page for a full listing of all the options.

Learn from the Best: our instructors are credentialed by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers and are members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. We attend and host seminars and conferences on a regular basis in order to bring the best new techniques and learning to you. Instructors regularly attend classes, seminars, and competitions with their own dogs in order to gain experience in all areas of training and behavior.
