Dog Obedience Training

Camp Miracle Paws offers non-tradtional dog training and is the premier dog obedience training and behavior modification enrichment center in the upstate area.

With over 20 years of canine behaviorist and task training experience, our obedience training techniques can help your dog to be the best that he can be by rectifing behavioral problems instead of just maintaining undesirable behaviors.

Our training techniques are easy to reinforce and are based on building a trusting relationship to help him to understand what we are asking him to do unlike old style traditional trainers that use dominace and fear based training were behaviors are maintained at best.
