Our Services

Pawsitive Canine Training Center L.L.C. is a positive-based, family friendly dog training facility owned by Liz and her four-legged roomies located in Lowell, Michigan (east of Grand Rapids & Ada/Cascade, west of Lansing, north of Hastings and south of Rockford, MI).  We train using Reward Based~Marker Training which provides a positive atmosphere for humans and their dogs.

Pawsitive Canine offers many classes year round, view our Class Schedule.

Dog members of Pawsitive compete in Agility, Obedience, and Rally.  Many are AKC Canine Good Citizens, AKC S.T.A.R. Puppies and/or are Therapy Dogs for West Michigan Therapy Dogs and/or a Pet Partner Member (a.k.a. Delta Society).  Liz has over ten years in the Dog Therapy World, so is an excellant resource to help get involved in that venue.  





Whether you have a competitive spirit or are just looking for something fun to try with your dog, Pawsitive Canine has plenty of options. Agility, Rally and Intro to Dog Sports are some of the performance events our students enjoy. We even offer Agility Foundation for those who wish to get an early start on introducing obstacles. This class is great for dogs of all ages that are looking for a fun change up from our structured training classes.

If you are interested in training beyond our PUPPY & BASICS classes (which we of course suggest), we offer an Intermediate obedience class that is the stepping stone to the next class of Advanced Obedience AKC Canine Good Citizen.  Refer to our class description for class details.  

We offer positive, rewards-based training programs tailored to help you develop your pet into a well-mannered companion.  Training can begin with A.K.C.-S.T.A.R. Puppy Obedience (as young as 10 weeks old assuring at least the first set of four puppy shots, bordetella and a negative fecal have been completed) and Basic Obedience.  We have instructors that are qualified to award AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificates (which the CGC is now a title through the American Kennel Club).
