Professional Dog Training

Jacksonville’s multi-certified dog trainer
& behavior consultant

You may find that Ruff to Ready (formerly Pawsitive Canine Services) is different than other trainers you’ve worked with or heard of. That’s because we take a personal approach to developing a science-based training plan that is tailored to alleviate pain points in your life with your dog.

What we do

Specializing in aggressive and fearful dogs, we stay up to date with the latest scientific research to ensure you are receiving the best information possible. We provide private training sessions in your home for one-on-one time. We also offer Jacksonville’s only group classes to turn growly dogs from ruff to ready.

Who we are

Ruff to Ready is your local Jacksonville dog trainer and canine behavior consultant. We offer training from a multi-certified (through organizations such as the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers), educated, and experienced trainer to ensure you and your dog are able to effectively communicate. Our dog training enables you to live your best lives together!
