Jan here - many times during the course of a conversation the question about 'training' arises. While PAWS cannot recommend anyone, I have personally used Lisa's services and can without any reservation recommend her. IF you have training questions or concerns please give her a call. She and her husband Dave will help you understand how important training is. They teach obedience beginner classes up to Advanced Agility classes and everything in between! A link to her website has been provided.

PAWS is a Therapy Pet Organization proudly celebrating 24 years of volunteer service as of 2017. Our certified and registered pets and owners focus their visits to nursing homes, hospitals, schools, etc. located across the Nation. PAWS is comprised entirely of volunteers and there is no paid staff. Tax deductible donations, are sincerely appreciated as they help us grow and reach those in need of a wagging tail!
Disposition is critical while common sense, common courtesy and the desire to truly make a difference in so many lives are some of the fundamental requirements needed to join. We pride ourselves on the work we do and therefore, are not associated nor affiliated with any other organizations.

Thank God and everyone's prayers to get us through Hurricane Irma. Tampa was very blessed, the damage could have been much worse. We send our prayers and thanks to all those who protected Florida, the Police and Sheriff's Departments, Firefighters, all First Responders, those on the NEWS Channels that kept us all well informed and to those OUT of FL who faithfully kept us in your prayers, thank you. Thanks to all the Floridians that have helped their neighbors, complete strangers and ALL those animals left behind from heartless people. It's wonderful to see people come together for one common goal,  only to help one another.  We are sincerely grateful to everyone, may God bless you
