OUR TRAINING

Here at Paws to Peaks Rescue, we like to diversify our training practices. We travel across the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountains and every day presents a new training opportunity. 

We strive to provide the best experience for our dogs while improving their obedience and overall training results while they are awaiting their forever home.

We set short-term and long-term goals for each dog, and focus individually on what each dog needs after being brought into the rescue. 

Gina is the primary trainer and runs Get the Point Dog Training which specifically prioritizes the rescue dogs who come into this rescue. She is certified in Pet Psychology through New Skills Academy and is working towards her certification as a Certified Behavior Consultant Canine-(CBCC-KA) AND Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). In addition to becoming involved in NAVHDA and the surrounding Pheasants Forever Chapters in Montana.

A list of things we work on which can vary from dog to dog are: kenneling, loading up into the truck, e-collar training, leash training, basic obedience, retrieve training, water training, SUP training, recall training, being calm around children, and positive interactions with other dogs.

We do not adopt out on a first come first serve basis, as we want our dogs to go to the BEST forever home for them!

DEPENDING ON TIME OF YEAR, WE MAY DO SOME BIRD HUNTING AND GUN INTRO WITH DOGS OR IF REQUESTED BY ADOPTERS, BUT UNLESS SPECIFIED IN THE ADOPTION CONTRACT, DOGS ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO BE A STARTED OR COMPLETED DOG TO HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO BIRD HUNT WHEN ADOPTED FROM THE RESCUE. THIS WILL TAKE YOUR TIME AS THEIR NEW OWNER TO TEACH THEM!

If interested in one of our dogs, please go to the forms page and review the adoption agreement, if that looks good then please proceed with filling out the application and emailing it back to us. You should hear a response within 24-48 hours.
