What our clients say
"Polite Paws is by far the best training program we have had (and we have tried many). Jade has a wonderful calm teaching style and puts humans and dogs at ease. She has a variety of classes for all levels of abilities and allows you to do what is comfortable for you and your dog. So glad I found her." - Nancy with Gus and Benson (Border Collies)
"It is great to have someone who loves dogs and believes that a new behavior should be taught with kindness. My trainer is always professional and has a wonderful understanding of how to train dogs and is passionate about her work. Another positive note is she is dependable and trustworthy. Dallas LOVES her very much." - Barbara Florentine with Dallas (Cocker Spaniel)
"From the moment Polite Paws entered our home, we were all at ease, it was like having a long time friend come to visit. Our 11 month old Shetland Sheepdog came from an abusive background. Polite Paws understood and showed patience, understanding and love. Whatever your situation is, I highly recommend Polite Paws to solve your 4 legged problems and needs."
- Bonnie & Joel M. with Rio (Shetland Sheepdog)
"Jade is very kind and patient. My dog was struggling through a behavior incident and Jade was amazing and level headed throughout. Agility was awesome! She always thought of creative ways to engage Riley and he looked forward to going! She did not once make me feel bad about it or blame my dog. It was a learning experience and she was very helpful!"

"The classes were so helpful with learning how to teach Cali to walk with me without pulling, to sit, stay and all of the necessary skills a puppy and pet parent should know. She is much better behaved then when I tried to do her training on my own. She also got to learn how to place nicely with other dogs."
- Jen with Cali (mixed breed)
