Anything’s PAWSable Dog Training, located in Kalispell, MT, offers both in-home behavior consultations and group classes using positive, force-free methods. With my experience in dog training and as a dog-sport competitor I have experienced firsthand the benefits of using positive reinforcement dog training both in terms of the speed of training as well as the dog’s motivation to perform trained behaviors. Dog training should not be about corrections for behavior you don’t want but rather teaching the behaviors you do want. At no point in training should your relationship with, nor the trust your dog has in you, be compromised.

My name is Debi Buchholz and I am a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner and have been dog training for more than 12 years. I have loved dogs since I was a small child and am passionate about enhancing the relationship you share with yours. I am located in NW Montana, in Kalispell, and do behavior consultations anywhere in the greater Flathead Valley. I’m also willing to assist at dog shows if I have time or we make arrangements to do so.
