Does My Dog Need a Professional Dog Trainer in Southern MD?

Does your dog do these things: bark when the doorbell rings, jump on or nip at friends and guests, pull while on walks, chase the family cat, or get into your trash can? Or does your puppy relieve themselves in the house and need potty training? Some pet owners think their pets’ behavior are normal dog or puppy actions, but sometimes bad behavior requires professional dog obedience help.

Pawsitive K9 Academy LLC, is your preferred choice for your dog to learn basic obedience, good behavior, and standard commands in St Marys County, Calvert County or Charles County in Southern Maryland.

About Us

Greg Rocheleau, owner and lead trainer of Pawsitive K9 Academy, has been a dog lover his entire life. When he was a kid, he used to teach his dog Sunshine tricks and was amazed at how quickly she learned. While working in the furniture industry, Greg began training dogs part-time to apply his love of training dogs. After a few years, Greg started his own company, Pawsitive K9 Academy, to begin training dogs full-time. For the past 5 years, Greg has trained hundreds of dogs to be obedient members of their families. His core training beliefs are to get your dog to be a proper member of your household, be obedient, and bring joy to dog owners in Southern Maryland.

Testimonials from our Clients

Gayle Troan, 12-2-21

We highly recommend Pawsitive K9 Academy. Greg is the BEST! He’s patient, knowledgeable, and not that it’s required in a dog trainer, a genuinely nice person. Our puppy Levi was the ruler of our house. He bullied us into giving him constant attention. We walked him, played with him, and gave belly rubs on demand. We were pushovers! Greg has transformed our out-of-control puppy into an obedient member of the family. We’ve come to realize that training our puppy was the easy part for Greg, training us was the real challenge. He taught us that being consistent is key. We need to require Levi to follow the rules all the time, not just most of the time. We are confident that we can continue to become better puppy parents, but if we slip up and forget our role, support from Greg is just a text or phone call away.

Karen Stanley, 11-10-21

Best money I’ve ever spent! Greg is the best - he trained my dog Honey and me too! I’m more confident and Honey is so well behaved now.

Theresa Miller Francis, 8-29-21

Greg was so great with our very energetic 18 month old golden retriever. Not only did Greg give us the tools to train our dog, but he ensured each family member was consistent with the training. He was very patient showing our pre-teen and teenager how to train and walk our dog. Greg spent a lot of time answering all of our questions, he was always available to answer questions outside of our sessions, and was very responsive. We would recommend Pawsitive K9 Academy to everyone trying to train their pup to be a wonderful, well behaved family member! Thanks Greg!!!

Anastasia Elaine, 6-17-21

Greg is absolutely amazing. Our Golden doodle wasn’t aware of her own size and loved people, this made it hard for people to come in the house or for us to go on walks. She would jump and pull on everyone. Now she can go sit in place and be calm while people enter the house and she walks almost perfectly on leash. We are so happy we found Greg he made training seem so easy!

Lisa Pulliam 4-19-21

Greg is such a wonderful trainer. I was beyond impressed with his knowledge and patience while training my Vizsla, Willow. I would 100% recommend his services for anyone interested in seeking training for their K9.

Alison Thir 3-27-21

Greg has helped us and especially our kids learn how to manage our puppy. He has helped us through some problematic behaviors but also educated us on normal puppy behaviors as well. Between sessions he was available to help us if we needed it as well! Thank you, Greg, for helping us redirect our puppy’s energy into fun and rewarding experiences!

Mary Faith 2-16-21

We have had a great experience working with Greg! We have learned lots of helpful tools that have allowed us to enjoy our puppy even more than before, as he learned his boundaries! Thanks!

Connie Steele Powell 2-4-21

After a short time with my 12-year-old fur baby Nick, Greg had him walking up and down the ramp instead of stairs. It’s a huge relief knowing all the struggling Nick was doing just trying to get up and down 3 stairs. He suffers from Lyme and massive growths on his chest (the vets say his age makes it extremely dangerous to remove them). Greg is amazing, he definitely has a passion for this and does an awesome job. Highly recommend!!!

Lisa Yates 1-31-21

Greg is absolutely AMAZING! We started obedience training with our puppy when he was 9 weeks old and during our first lesson within 10 minutes of working with our pup Greg already had him listening to the come and sit commands!

Becky Ritchie Leishear 1-18-21

Greg is the best! He is so patient and knowledgeable. His training techniques built confidence in our puppy.

Tracy Barriger Vallandingham 12-6-20

Greg was absolutely wonderful with our Milo. He was so patient and not only helped our sweet pup gain more confidence but also taught our family how to better interact with Milo.
