Don't trash your bathroom or subject your sweet dog to the cold water from the backyard hose.
Check out our custom-made dog tubs and you'll never wash your dog at home again. We've found what we believe is the best dog bath on the market. Our tubs are truly dog-friendly. They're low enough that even the oldest dogs can hop right in, and since they're made from fiberglass, they're completely non-slip. These tubs even allow you to rinse both sides of your pet without ever unclipping or turning the dog. Our water is pre-mixed to the perfect, warm temperature, the spray nozzle allows you to choose how much pressure you want, and our dryers get your dog warm and dry before leaving. We supply aprons (to keep you dry,) brushes, Earthbath natural shampoo, towels, use of our raised grooming tables, dog-friendly tubs, and dryers. All you need to bring is a dirty dog!

We pride ourselves on one-on-one attention paid to each individual dog and situation.

Private Lesson Plan includes off leash training
Private lessons quickly solve a host of problems. Yes, it really works! Appointment times are flexible. In these four sessions, we will assess your dog at our facility and put together a comprehensive approach/plan to work towards achieving your goals, whether they be obedience and/or behavioral issues. For most dogs four private lessons (five hours of training) complete: come when called, good leash manners, no more jumping, sit/stay, down/stay and any behavior problems such as jumping, nipping, counter surfing, excessive barking, chewing, digging, cat/squirrel/car chasing. The initial 2-hour session is comprised of a consultation, assessment, and hands-on training with you and your dog. You will begin to see dramatic changes in your dog's behavior within this first session. The next three sessions are 1 hour each, where we will continue to work hands-on with you and your dog on all of the above behaviors. Our unique approach to dog training is geared more towards addressing the fundamental state of mind of your dog, rather than strictly focusing on creating rehearsed behaviors. In other words, we are much more concerned with creating a happy, healthy, balanced dog than creating a dog that simply knows a few obedience commands. BlackPaw's head trainer, Bernadette, specializes in E-Collar/Remote Collar training, and all dogs that go through one-on-one sessions will be remote collar trained. If your goal is to have complete freedom and dependability off-leash, inside and outside, our revolutionary approach will give you fantastic results. Dogs with any human aggression, or serious dog aggression, are not eligible for the One-on-One sessions. This is for the safety of everyone involved, and for the results we are looking for. Work one on one with Bernadette and your dog at our Lafayette training center. Practice daily and see quick, happy results.
