Bonding & Trust Workshop

We all love our dogs deeply, so we all want to build our dogs' trust in us throughout their whole lives. We want our dogs to understand that we are trustworthy, kind, and always ready to reward them for following our lead. As we build up that bonds with our dogs, our connection increases, our dogs' behavior becomes more reliable and prompt, and our dogs become more willing to try new things with us. Click the title for more information, including topics, timing, and registration details.

Loose Leash Workshop

Are daily walks a bit stressful instead of a relaxing time to bond with your dog? Do you wish you could take your dog more places, but once you start walking, you lose your connection? This workshop will, perhaps surprisingly, focus on not using the leash so much. Instead, it will focus on teaching your dog where to be and how to stay connected to you, whether he's literally hooked in or not. Click the title for more information, including topics, timing, and registration details.

Puppy Up! 2016 Walk

  • Guilford Fair Grounds

Paws 'N Effect is a sponsor for the upcoming PuppyUp walk that will be held at the Guilford Fair Grounds on Sunday, October 30, with a festival starting at 11AM and 2-mile walk at 1PM.

Did you know that between 4 and 6 million dogs die from cancer every year? And 38 children in the US alone are diagnosed with this disease every day. By funding comparative oncology research, these alarming statistics can be reduced to the benefit of both dogs and humans. Let’s join together to walk and fundraise for the PuppyUp Walk.

At the walk, we will be offering Canine Good Citizen evaluations and a fun obstacle course for a small donation!

We would love to have you join the Paws 'N Effect Cares team. All are welcome. When it comes to our PuppyUp Walk team, the more the merrier!

It’s easy to join. Go to this link, click "Join Team" and follow the prompts to register.

If you cannot join our team and walk on October 30th, please consider making a donation in memory or in celebration of a special dog.
