Training with Trust and Respect


Balanced, cooperative and happy is the natural state of mind for dogs.
You can have the Dream Dog… and we can help!
Just contact Bernadette Pflug, Certified Professional Dog Trainer.

The BlackPaw training center is located just minutes from I-25, less than an hour from most parts of the Denver area, on a small farm in Boulder County. Dogs in our boarding school program enjoy twice daily pack runs on our property in order to better improve their socialization skills with other dogs.


Room to run and play and to learn to come when called. The entire property is fenced for safety and dogs are ALWAYS with their trainer.

We work all the dogs on and off leash, encountering plenty of distractions out here like other dogs, horses, goats and bunnies. What a great place to learn manners! We also take field trips to town to learn to behave in crowded retail environments.A safe and cozy place to bunk down for the night. During their stay with us, each dog enjoys his own six foot by six foot kennel in our fully heated training building. Bring your own food though… we don’t want an upset tummy.
