Nina at Sunny Paws worked a miracle with our dog, Blue. Blue has always been super anxious and was terrible on walks. My wife couldn’t even handle him. Twelve weeks with Nina and he’s so much better! We still have work to do, but now we have hope and we know Blue will continue to improve. Nina gave us the skills we needed to help our dog.

My dog, Hildi, was a street dog in California and didn’t have a lot of manners when I got her. I’m older and was having trouble keeping her entertained and she was also really difficult to walk. She would tug so hard. I called Nina at Sunny Paws and she really helped me. Now Hildi walks politely and I don’t have to worry about falling. Nina also helped me figure out how to keep her entertained so she’s a lot calmer. We are both so much happier!

Happy Vet and Grooming visits

Vet and grooming visits can be extremely stressful for many dogs. Sunny Paws specializes in teaching Cooperative Care skills. Cooperative Care is a  fun and effective training protocol that helps dogs learn to stay calm and cooperative for nail trims, grooming, blood draws, vaccinations, and handing by strangers.


Does your dog need to work on basic manners? Does your dog have some problem behaviors you’d like to resolve? Did you recently get a puppy or a rescue dog? We offer both in-person and virtual training packages.

No matter what your budget, we have a plan that’s right for you.


Is your dog exibiting signs of boredom like digging, destructive behavior, hyperactivity, or excessive barking? A personalized enrichment program can really make a difference in their day to day behaviors. This is also a great choice if you aren’t quite ready, or able, to invest the time or money in a full training plan.

Our dogs are doing the best they can with the education we have given them, in the environment we’ve asked them to perform in.
