Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases, I am temporarily suspending my services.

I will be monitoring the situation and will re-open when it is safer to do so.

I would suggest going to the APDT.com website to locate an available local trainer.

Thanks for your understanding and stay well.

A Little Bit About Me

My name is Patty Harvey and of course I LOVE dogs.  But, while working in the corporate world training computer users, I realized that I loved teaching as well.  So, I decided to change careers to dog training. 

In 2008, I graduated as an honor student from Animal Behavior College and started my business (Paw and Order Dog Training) as an in-home personal dog trainer.

I am a strong believer that owner/dog relationships should consist of:
- Great communication between the owner and the dog
- Physical exercise for the dog
- Mental exercise for the dog
- FUN for everyone!

I try to incorporate that into all of my personal in-home dog training sessions using gentle positive reinforcement methods. I also believe that a family dog is just that - part of the family.  So I only help address the behavior issues that the family considers an issue.

As a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, I pursue continuing education by attending seminars and conferences keeping up to date on current training techniques and products.

For me nothing compares to the joy I feel when I see a dog and their owner learn how to successfully communicate.  It is deeply gratifying to use my dog training skills to change a previously frustrating relationship into a wonderful harmonious one.  It's amazing to me how comfortable and relaxed dogs become once they understand what is expected of them.  I love being part of that process!
