First, I’d like to thank Paw and Order for sponsoring this post, and tell you a little about them.
Paw & Order Dog Training strives to be knowledgeable in every valuable technique and tool for training dogs and their owners. They use a balanced approach to dog training. Their programs are tailored to the individual dog vs one method that is supposed to work for every dog. They offer commitment-based in-home and board and train packages, working with you and your dog until all goals are met.
Head trainer Charli Ardoin was born and raised in Houston. Her heart was touched when volunteering at multiple dog rescues over the years, which lead to an education in professional dog training. She was driven to stop the constant flow of dogs being surrendered and euthanized due to misunderstood behavioral issues. After completing a highly selective professional dog training program, Charli worked several years as a freelance dog trainer before findhing her home with the Paw & Order family. She loves helping humans communicate better with their dogs so they can live peacefully in a calm household.
