I provide dog training services with a special focus on puppy training and behavioral therapy to help your puppy transition into a well-mannered dog, you can take everywhere you go with confidence. I have over two decades of commitment to positive dog training and owner education.

My specialty includes dealing with behavioral concerns, basic manners, and communication using proven methods in the most humane way possible to give puppies and pet parents the tools they need to build a healthy, loving relationship.

I will help you capitalize on your puppy’s critical learning stage to get the training results you want in a fraction of the time and will provide continued help and support for stronger, lasting results. At Pawsitive K9 Solutions, we are committed to building unbreakable bonds between dogs and their owners.


WHY did I decide to work with dogs,  A deep desire to help, offer support, and it is extremely rewarding.

I love watching the transformation and connection of a new dog or puppy with their family.  I assist them with communication so that they can connect and live together in harmony.

Puppy Trainer Assistant/Puppy Sitter

Hi there! My name is Natalie and I am a puppy trainer assistant, also known as a puppy sitter here at Pawsitive K9 Solutions. I absolutely adore working with puppies and helping them learn and grow into well-behaved dogs.

My job involves a lot of hands-on work with the puppies, including feeding, playing, and potty training. I also assist the lead trainer with basic obedience training, socialization, and crate training.

One of my favorite parts of the job is getting to know each puppy’s unique personality and tailoring my approach to their individual needs. I love seeing the progress they make over time and the joy they bring to their new families.

In addition to my work as a puppy trainer assistant, I am also currently enrolled in nursing school. While my love for working with puppies runs deep, I have always had a passion for helping people as well.



Puppy Trainer Assistant/Puppy Sitter

Hello, my name is Daniel, and I am a puppy trainer assistant and Puppy Sitter at Pawsitive K9 Solutions. As a puppy sitter, I love working with dogs and helping them develop their skills and behavior, whether that’s basic obedience, socialization, or potty training.

In addition to my work with puppies, I also have a passion for coffee and work as a barista at Starbucks. I enjoy the challenge of crafting the perfect cup of coffee.

Juggling two jobs can be difficult, but I find that they both fulfill different aspects of my personality. Working with puppies allows me to nurture and care for animals, while working as a barista satisfies my love of people and social interaction.

I believe that both jobs help me to grow as a person, teaching me patience, communication skills, and adaptability. I’m grateful to be able to pursue two passions simultaneously and look forward to seeing where my career takes me.
