I was shocked when virtual training was more helpful than in person for us!

"We did two virtual sessions with Get Pawsitive and I truly cannot recommend Sarah enough! Especially if you have a rescue. Her approach is positive reinforcement and she just GETS what these dogs need. We had a bad experience with an in person trainer locally so finding her through our rescue Bunnies Buddies was such a gift! And I was shocked when virtual training was more helpful than in person for us because we found the right person and the right approach for us and the boys."

The Pawsitive Puppy Training Academy


This 6 week self-paced course allows you to access it 24/7. It is a comprehensive self-study program giving you all you need and more to set you and your new puppy up for success!

Step-by-step videos, tutorials, reading library as well as printables are included for all learning styles. This program does not take the place of in person puppy to puppy playtime but gives you the tools to bring out the best in your new family member so that you can have an amazing relationship.


We’ll teach you how to build a wonderful, benevolent relationship with your puppy while tackling all of those common puppy behaviors that we really don’t want to keep seeing - annoying puppy nipping, chewing inappropriate things, potty issues, digging and jumping. All the while, we will be teaching him a wonderful beginning foundation of focus, attention and calmness through a variety of fun training exercises online that will prepare your puppy for the new world!
