Pawsitive Pup Training provides top-notch services for dog owners in the Wilmington area who are interested in force-free training. Lainie does a fabulous job of not only dog training, but teaching owners as well. I definitely recommend this dog trainer to anyone needing help with their furry friend.

Pawsitive Pup Training worked wonders with my English Bulldog puppy Norman!! Lainie is amazing, her love and passion shine through in every session. It was awesome seeing the progress Norman made week to week. I am so thankful to have met Lainie and will continue to use the tools/knowledge she has equipped me with!

I was very selective and hesitant when picking a trainer for my almost 1-year-old Goldendoodle Ellie. Lainie was the only trainer in the area that uses counter conditioning and positive reinforcement training method. My puppy is very much like a child to me and I was not comfortable using the training trends like choke collars and shock collars, which are supposed to help quickly “train” my girl. Ellie is a very excitable girl and with Lainie’s help, we have both learned new techniques to help calm her down when she greets people and other fun tricks, we learned so much in a short time. Lainie is knowledgable, patient, and truly gets to know both you and your dog. I was very pleased with the training that Ellie and I received. I highly recommend Pawsitive Pup Training for a great experience and training that won’t break your pup’s spirits.

If you have a young puppy or dog you NEED positive, fun, practical, family friendly training and consulting. You have arrived at the perfect place! Sign them up as young as you can, because it’s never too early to start building good behaviors…

Pawsitive Pup Training was the only business in Wilmington we could find that uses counter conditioning / positive reinforcement methods. Having a brachycephalic breed, we were not comfortable using a choke collar, or some of the other harsh methods we saw, to “train” our dog. Our French Bulldog was very leash reactive, especially when cars drove by, but Lainie taught us some counter conditioning methods and we have seen a lot of improvement in a short time. She was very knowledgeable, patient and understanding. If you’re looking to actually teach your dog and not just break it’s spirit until it submits, I highly recommend Pawsitive Pup Training.

After rescuing a 2 year old English mastiff we had trouble getting him and our 12 year old yellow lab together. With Lainie’s help we taught him the basic obedience and impulse control he needed so that the two dogs could get along. She is very patient, knowledgeable, and really helped us focus on the right things.

Lanie worked with “Layla”, the Boxer/Pitt foster dog we fostered for “Pets For Vets”. She volinteered her time 2-3 days/week- for 6 weeks. – with Layla, getting her trained for her new job… a companion dog for a veteran:) Lanie even went the “extra mile” and kept Layla ar her home for a couple days for intense training to correct a particular issue I was dealing with. Layla responded well to Lanie, and we consider her a friend:) Layla was well prepared and is thriving in her new home!

Lainie was a wonderful trainer for our puppy! She came to our house to help us with some specific issues, and quickly and professionally trained us AND our puppy. She is always positive and pleasant with her clients, and is very proactive in terms of determining the needs of the puppy and its human family!
