I feel very fortunate to live close to Paws N Effect as it has become like my second home. I have taken 3 obedience classes and now attend a weekly agility class - all are top notch! Could not recommend this place more!

My agility dog has been training under Shari King for about a year now and his progress has been outstanding. We were making very slow progress with a previous trainer and since starting with Shari we’ve received multiple ribbons. She is very experienced and always ensures the dogs are comfortable and having fun. Paws holds multiple trials a year on site which makes it very convenient for us to participate.

I have been coming to Paws n Effect for many years with my dogs for the special events (Agility trials) they host on weekends throughout each calendar year. Each one has been well run by club members and volunteers who are knowledgeable and helpful, fun to be a part of, and organized. The building is always clean and parking is decent. I would take training classes here too if I lived closer which is the only reason I can't give it 5 stars. I do recommend those classes to others.

Actually went to the dog grooming shop, Little House of Howler's... Nice people. Edit: Also my dog is a graduate from Paw's and Effect they too are nice folks and good dog trainers.

My wife and I brought our dog for training he doesn't have any experience being around other dogs or people outside his immediate circle So because of this we have been outside the training circle with the hopes that he come down.Well we have been on the sidelines by ourselves and feeling like outcasts. The trainer is focused on the other dogs and doesn't seen to be worried about including us. Very dissatisfied . If our dog needs another approach then say so, dont leave us by ourselves like that. We payed just like everyone else.Disrespectful I feel. Bad experience

Excellent, professional training for dogs at all levels AND their owners (dogs do not train without their owners learning how to train them).
