The Road to Positive Training

Essential Training

Training your dog should be fun experience for both of you! As a fully certified Fear Free Positive Reinforcement Dog Trainer based in the Grand Strand, I’ve been training animals since 2006. Over the years I have become immersed in science based methods of training animals that is not about force or using the leash, but is fun for all and thoroughly innovative. 

Sharing your home with a dog or multiple dogs should be one of mutual respect. Making sure your dog is well trained will give both of you more time to enjoy each other’s company. My positive training methods are full of fun techniques that will give you and your pooch a happier life together.


For Paw Drive was founded in 2006, and has developed a very special reputation with pups and their owners in New Jersey and South Carolina. I believe that having a clear set of boundaries is one thing, but being forceful is just not necessary. I don’t believe in choke collars, or that using a leash is the only way to teach an animal discipline. Dogs, and many other animals, are social animals who enjoy love and family life. Let’s train using positive reinforcement, and help them become a wonderful addition to your family!
