Jace – training sessions

Day two, Jace now knows sit-down-paw.


Jace is learning basic commands to build up his confidence. Today he learned “down” as that is what he offered first when asked to sit! We are now working on “sit”. He would not take treats at first but since has decided that training was a lot of fun… and tasty too!

It’s official!

P.A.W.R. is pleased and excited to offer its services to Chatham-Kent residents may they be 2 legged or four legged. We can hardly wait to launch the many programs we have developed with the help of many enthusiastic volunteers who all share the same goal, helping local animals.
