Dog Training


Paws in the City has collectively the most experienced dog trainers in the greater Wellington region (and perhaps even over the entire country). Three of our trainers have individually over 30 years training experience whilst our newer trainers are gaining a quicker advantage of working with us to share and learn from all this experience.

Our knowledge comes from real international and local experiences and practices and we pride ourselves in being able to give each individual owner and dog personal and practical application of any training needs. We are always open to new ideas and will research and develop new methods to ensure we remain the region's leading trainers.

We use positive reinforcement methods as we want any behaviour change or training learned to have solid and lasting effect while keeping the trusting relationship between owner and dog whole. All our training is explained in non-technical terminology so that it is easier for everyone to understand and put into practice. When sharing our knowledge and helping you with your dog's training we take care to ensure that your lifestyle is considered so that any changes that may be needed are as minimal as possible in order to achieve the result you desire.
