CREATING HAPPY PETS AND HUMANS WITH POSITIVE TRAINING THAT WORKS!

Happy Paws Update - November 8, 2018

 

PUPPY TRAINING IS BACK!


Happy Paws Puppy training is currently available to all VBSPCA adopters who have adopted a puppy within the last 12 months. Our training schedule offers a Basic class for puppies up to 6 months of age and an Advanced class for puppies between 6 and 12 months of age. Classes are offered as sessions, and adopters will select the date and time of the week that works best for their schedule. Please note that whichever day and time you choose will be the same day and time for each of your 6 training sessions. This allows our training staff to move forward with the curriculum while keeping everyone on the same page, ensuring a successful experience for both puppies and parents. We launch a new phase of classes every few weeks so you won’t have to wait to long to get your training started. For information on our winter schedule or to sign up for a class, email puppytraining@vbspca.com.

 

 

 

About Happy Paws Humane Pet Training


Our Mission

Happy Paws is a collaborative venture in support of the Virginia Beach SPCA that provides education and training to strengthen the bond between companion animals and their families. Our collective vision is for all pets in Hampton Roads to live in loving forever homes. Happy Paws is made possible courtesy of a generous grant from the Alfred L. Nicholson Fund of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation.

 

Our Philosophy


Happy Paws’ training philosophy is the product of years of training and research. We believe that every pet is an individual member of a family and deserves to be treated humanely and with respect. Training should be fun for both you and your pet, and our training methods center on a reward-based method system that builds a positive relationship between pet and owner.

This relationship is achieved by teaching our animals what is expected of them in any given situation, rather than using force and excessive corrections. At Happy Paws, we take a holistic approach that is firmly rooted in scientific learning theory.

Our strategy is to identify desired behaviors and positively reinforce them so that they can be repeated.
