Claudia is fantastic! She is very clear, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. She has definitely helped us get in a good place with our training so that Justin and Janet can be model puppy citizens! Highly recommend to anyone whether you are just starting with a puppy or looking to take your training to the next level.

Claudia is an excellent trainer- knowledgeable and most importantly a great teacher for ME and my Lulu. Thanks for the foundation and the training goes on.

Claudia has been a tremendous support to me with our first puppy! Her training and recommendations have helped us in so many ways-I am so grateful for her and look forward to more sessions with her and continuing our work!

Our goals for dog training were modest: we wanted our dog to come when called and sit on command. After training with Claudia our dog can do so much more than we ever thought he would be able to.

We contacted Claudia because we were desperate for help! Our sweet Dixie was 4 months old and we were completely overwhelmed. Claudia stepped in and saved the day! She was extremely patient; she took the time to understand our family dynamic and provided us with wonderful recommendations that helped to alleviate the stress of having a puppy. She communicated with us throughout the week, gave us excellent feedback and even encouraged us when she could see we were struggling with a particular training method. We recently completed two months of training and we cannot believe how much progress our little Dixie has made. We are extremely grateful to Claudia for teaching us how to be better puppy parents. We 100% recommend her services.

Naturally Pawsitive has been an excellent experience for us and our dog. We contacted Claudia to help us train our almost 2 years old rescue pup and work on her impulse control. Claudia provide very practical and easy to understand solutions and helped us (the owners :) ) giving us much more confidence. We highly recommend Naturally Pawsitive!

We loved working with Claudia. She helped us to understand our dog and his behaviors, as well as teach us the skills to have a well adjusted dog. She is incredibly knowledgeable and patient and we couldn’t be more happy to have had the opportunity to work with her. We will be back!

At first I was put off by the online/zoom dog training but after biting the bullet and working with Claudia on a one on one basis I was so overwhelmed with satisfaction. Not only is she funny and seemed to enjoy our dog, she had so many …

Claudia is amazing-she has helped us make great progress with our rescue pup who is reactive and we struggled to train with other trainers. We were skeptical of how feasible virtual training would be for us and our pup but we are …

Claudia at Naturally Pawsitive has been great to work with. She is very knowledgeable about dog training and behavior. She promotes a positive reinforcement style of training to bring success to you and your pup. Claudia is very responsive and easy to work with as you have questions. We have done both group classes and one-on-one training for our dog with Claudia and both are great options to further your training with your dog.

Claudia is an excellent dog trainer and I would highly recommend her. She worked with us through COVID utilizing Zoom from the week we got our puppy until he was just about 1 year old.

We had a wonderful experience with Claudia doing both group classes and at home private sessions (both in person and virtual) working on basic obedience and specific reactivity for our rescue pup. Claudia's approach is designed to set you and your dog up for success. She's helps you understand why dogs do certain things (like how stressors and triggers build) and she is provides really practical solutions for working on everything from basic skills, "tricks", to more complex situations like reactivity. As a first time dog owner I had a lot to learn and Claudia was a wonderful resource! I would 100% go back to her for future dog training needs. I feel like a more capable dog parent after working with Claudia.

We have been training with Claudia of Naturally Pawsitive since our one year old dog was a tiny puppy. We sought out private training as our cute furball felt the need to guard his treats in a way that was most unfriendly. He (and we) needed help before an accident happened. Claudia helped us address the guarding challenge (in a fear-free way) and so much more! She’s helped us become better dog parents, taught us skills to keep him safe (no more indiscriminate eating) as well as techniques to work with his silly, exuberant personality so he can be his best dog self. Claudia is responsive, so experienced and is an excellent and patient coach. Our dog knows so many commands but our family has also learned so much. What is also amazing is that we have come so far and learned so much with exclusively virtual instruction. We highly recommend Claudia for anyone considering working with a trainer. We are so glad we found her.

Loved our experience with Claudia. She was patient and accurate in trying to learn the why's of our dog's training needs, as well as training our pup's humans. We found the virtual training to be effective, with fun and effective homework in between sessions. I highly recommend!

Claudia was fantastic with my daughter's puppies!! From the moment they came home, Claudia provided ongoing support, explaining socialization as well as everything "puppy"!! I totally recommend Claudia!

We worked with Claudia to start training our puppy. Claudia helped us focus on areas to work on/behaviors to train and in addition to learning commands we have seen an improvement in our dog's behavior. Thank you Claudia!

Claudia is incredibly knowledgeable about dogs, specifically those with behavioral issues such as reactivity. She gave us simple, yet effective tools to use on our dogs that have helped immensely. We have done classes with her and private in-home lessons and both have been beneficial. It can be hard to know how to find the right dog trainer or where to start looking for one, but her training and philosophy (positive training only) was exactly what we were looking for. Without a doubt I would highly recommend her.

Claudia at Naturally Pawsitive is the best. She is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive, and we are able to work around our busy schedules to meet with her virtually, which we love. We have seen such huge improvements in our dog, and can attribute all of that to our sessions with Claudia. She is an impartial (but highly experienced!) trainer who helps us decipher our dogs behavior, while also assisting with training basics and relationship building between us and our pup - we could not recommend her more. Thank you so much, Claudia!

After interviewing three other trainers I was very fortunate to find Claudia. She knows dogs! Through our first consultation she got to know Penelope and was able to develop methods that were specific to Penelope as an individual. The positive approach is the way to go. It enhanced Penelope's trust in me and we thoroughly enjoy training together. Claudia provided me with simple, easy to understand tools to train Penelope. No scolding or punishment! Claudia was always available for questions and concerns. She was with me every step of the way! I highly recommend Naturally Pawsitive. You won't be disappointed and neither will your dog!

As first time dog owners navigating the sometimes overwhelming experience of training a puppy, we were looking for a trainer who would be supportive, patient, and encouraging as well as knowledgeable. Claudia is all of these. We began private virtual training sessions with her when our pup was 12 weeks old and are now on our second set of sessions. Claudia is able to explain and demonstrate each task clearly, answer all questions, and make corrections in a completely non-judgmental way. She breaks things down into very manageable steps and provides links to video demonstrations and also written sheets that walk you through each activity. The virtual format via Zoom is surprisingly effective. Claudia is also great about responding very promptly with feedback to videos we send to her in between our sessions. This allows us to make quick adjustments to our behaviors without having to wait until the next session. We highly recommend Claudia.

Claudia is a fantastic positive reinforcement trainer. She is very knowledgeable and is able to give clear concise education to pet owners. She has helped us through resource guarding issues with our 8 month old puppy. We were given easy to follow, manageable exercises to work on between sessions and have seen such great progress. Claudia is always quick to respond to texts and emails and gives great feedback on videos we send of training sessions. She truly cares about animals and teaching owners how to understand their dog’s behavior. Would highly recommend!

We were a little apprehensive about virtual training but found it incredibly intuitive and professional. We would definitely recommend Claudia to all our friends.

Very insightful and productive sessions. We feel much more confident reading our dog's response and managing his behavior. Claudia teaches very humane and effective techniques- no negative corrections. It really works!

We have a one-year-old golden retriever who was in need of some training. We needed some help with basic listening skills, but we also needed some help with resource guarding. I was reluctant to do "virtual" training because I thought that it wouldn't be as effective as in person training, but I was pleasantly surprised! Claudia was professional and knowledgable, giving us practical, real life tools to help us manage our pup. We particularly liked the fact that we could send her videos of us training and she would provide timely feedback. We're grateful for stumbling upon Naturally Pawsitive and will definitely recommend her to others in need of training!
