Just Paws Training was founded by Molly Feeney in 1993 in Minneapolis MN.
Molly was fortunate to have learned first hand at Sirius Puppy Training with Dr. Ian Dunbar. Dunbar, who is widely respected as the pioneer the off-leash puppy training movement in Berkeley CA. After spending a year working and learning Dunbar’s philosophy, Molly took this new found training back to the Midwest to open Minneapolis’ first off leash positive reinforcement puppy & dog training classes.
After 20 + years of growing a successful training program in the Midwest, Molly had high hopes to return to Northern California. Today, Just Paws Training offers Private in-home visits helping owners get set up for success with training, nutritional consulting & manage day-to-day behavioral skills.
Molly is a CPDT- KA trainer who practices positive, practical, force free philosophies with reward-based reinforcement. This means your dog is at no risk of increased fear or aggression due to the choice of training tools. In addition to her training certification, Molly has spent 15+ years studying canine food & nutrition. Her “What goes in, must come out” principle plays a enormous role between behavior, performance and a dogs overall health.
Just Paws Trainings goal is to help train and educate families to better communicate with their new puppies and dogs so they may live a happy, social and active life.
"My focus is to teach owners to raise, rear & train their puppies or dog using my "3P's" approach...Positive, Practical & Patience!"
