Train... Walk... Love...

Pawsitive Principles In-Home Pet Services was founded with the intention to provide pet owners with the knowledge and correct training skills to provide lifelong meaningful connections with their furry friends. My goal is to provide comfort, safety and fun for your pet while you are on Vacation. Think of it as your pet having a "pet-cation", while you are away, relaxing worry free.

Doing good business should include doing and providing great things for others, which is why Pawsitive Principles provides in-home services for; Vacation Sitting, Behaviour Modification / Obedience Training and Task-Training / Service Dogs.


Pawsitive Principles is familiar with a variety of animals such as; Dogs, Cats, Hamsters/Guinea Pigs/Gerbils, Birds, Ferrets and Turtles. I am also willing to take on other animals not listed here.

Task Training

As Jasper perfects one task, I introduce a new one or make the existing task harder.  , Jasper is able to do the following;

- "Bring me my medicine bag."

- "Open the fridge and bring me water... close the fridge."

- "Turn off light number 3, 2 or 1 " or "Turn off this light," which I point to.

- "Open the door," either by pushing the door or pressing an accessibility switch.

- "Push the button," at crosswalks and intersections.

- "Clean up the bathroom" - Close drawers that are open, close the toilet seat 

- "Flush the Toilet" 

-"Bring me my shoes or boots"

-"Pick up your dish" - when done a meal he brings me his dish, so I don't need to bend over.

 


Service animals are dogs trained to perform major life tasks to assist people with physical disabilities. Service animals are sometimes referred to as assistance animals, assist animals, support animals or helper animals depending on the country and the animal's function.

For a person to legally qualify to have a service dog, he/she must have a disability that substantially limits his/her ability to perform at least one major life task without assistance.


To qualify as a service dog, the dog must be individually trained to perform that major life task. All breeds and sizes of dogs can be trained as service animals.

 

Fully Certified Service Dogs must also meet the following conditions:

Commands: Commands may be given to the service dog verbally, via hand signals, or a combination of both.
