A wealth of knowledge, a passion for helpingDog Training Classes from Christy Paxton's Hand-in-Paw

CP-HIP owner and DogLife Skills Instructor (DLSI) Christy Paxton is available to talk to your group at your location or hers. For businesses, this is a great value-add for your customers/clients or a opportunity for employees to gain knowledge that can help them do their jobs better. Organizations can give members to opportunity to learn more about dog behavior from a progressive, experienced professional.

Christy has a particular style that mixes together a depth of knowledge, a thirst (some might say obsession) for more knowledge, a passion for problem solving, and a truly unique perspective on the dog-cat-human relationship!

These sessions run 1-1.5 hours and include a question-and-answer period. They may include demonstrations depending on topic and feasability.
