We Are Beyond The Typical “Local Dog Trainer”

We Don’t Just Emphasize Commands, But The Importance of The Relationship That You Have With Your Dog.

👉 Check Out Our Interview On FOX 40 News.



Mickey’s Swag, composed and performed by Belton Mouras, Jr. and featured in his short film “Mickey’s Tree,” is a bright, bouncy exhilarating piano melody that captures the spirit of the relationship between the lead character Mario and his dog Mickey. The “Mickey’s Swag Music Video” builds off this same joy, sharing a fun and frolicsome story of six adorable, excited dogs (including our hostess Maisey, who played “Mickey,” and one rescued from a shelter) having the time of their lives and all getting ready and coming together for this unique “furry-friends” GALA PARTY celebration. These heartwarming and playful images are intercut with shots of Producer-Entertainer Belton playing his jazzy music!

One-hour training sessions in your home or an agreed-upon location to work with your dog on the needs we spoke about during your evaluation.

Those can be purchased separately.

Once you have completed your evaluation this package is another option for training. Training sessions are in your home or an agreed-upon location. This package is best suited for someone who wants to strengthen communication with their dog and help with any behavioral needs, from basic commands to reactivity or aggression. It will include 4 individual lessons and a membership with Paws N Play.  Once your 4 sessions are completed you can go to a discounted session-by-session plan for $85 a session.
