Golden Paws Training Liz Hager

Ready to bring home a new puppy but not quite ready for all the work it involves? Let us help! We offer a variety of packages to fit your puppy’s needs. Our training program is unique because your puppy will live in our home as a part of our family while we work on training, not in a kennel.

We strive to help build happy, healthy, well-adjusted puppies! By partnering with Prairie Hill Puppies, we are able to start training at 8 weeks of age so your puppy will come to you already knowing the basics and ready to be a loved member of the family.
