About Us

Paw It Forward was the brainchild of one of the owners of House of Dog Training, Astrid Tryon, CPDT-KSA. She saw that pet owners needed and wanted training or behavior modification but were not always able to afford it. Following the example of various organizations that help pet owners with veterinary bills, the idea of “Paw it Forward” was born to specifically address the training need. 


Our Mission is to support pet parents and their companion animals to build a lasting relationship based on a positive foundation. Our goal is that all pet parents and rescue organizations have access to affordable, quality, modern science-based training and behavior modification.

Services will be provided by approved partners who adhere to the same position. We offer services for all companion animals as defined by the ASPCA;  "domesticated or domestic-bred animals whose physical, emotional, behavioral and social needs can be readily met as companions in the home, or in close daily relationship with humans." We look forward to partnering with trainers, boarding facilities, pet stores, TTouch Practitioners, Veterinary Behaviorists, Veterinary Nutritionists.
