Are you ready for less stress and frustration?  

Our expert dog trainers help you have a peaceful and joy-filled home.

Our training helps dog owners like you tackle frustrations like these...

“My dog jumps on everyone and it’s embarrassing.”

“I have a new puppy or rescue and want to make sure they’ll be well mannered and listen.”

“Walks aren’t fun because my dog is constantly pulling me and barking at people or dogs.”

“I have to chase my dog around the yard to get them to come in.  It’s like they don’t even hear me.”

“The dog listens to me but walks all over my spouse and kids. We need to get on the same page. “

“My dog has a ton of energy and I want to learn how to manage it without walking 10 miles a day.”

We Believe that You Deserve...

  • A calm, peaceful home where your dog is a part of the family rather than an added stressor. 
  • Relaxing walks with a dog that is calmly by your side instead of pulling you all over. 
  • A dog that comes when you call, every time, especially in your own backyard. 
  • A dog that welcome guests into your home without jumping or stealing their food. 
  • Dog trainers that know how to make dog training fun and practical for your unique situation.  (that’s us!)
Meet the Owners - Michael & Jamie Badial

Passionate about Pups: Michael and Jamie Badial aren’t just dog trainers, they’re dog lovers through and through. Their journey began as kids but continued as adults in the rescue community, where they both saw firsthand the challenges families face with dog behavior.

A Winning Team: Michael brings over 15 years of experience, from managing a large boarding kennel to rehabilitating aggressive dogs. He’s a certified expert (CBCC-KA, CPDT-KA) who’s constantly learning and mentoring new trainers.

Your Dog’s Best Friend: Jamie’s a natural with dogs, especially German Shepherds (she’s fostered a few dozen). Jamie is a certified dog trainer and enjoys rambuctious teenage dogs the most! Her background in accounting and business management (MBA) ensures Best Paw Forward runs smoothly.

Together, a Powerful Force: They’ve dedicated themselves to helping families live happily with their canine companions. Whether it’s raising a puppy or modifying unwanted behaviors, Michael, Jamie and the Best Paw Forward team provide practical, positive solutions to create lasting harmony.

More Than Training, It’s Family: With three young kids and their own furry pack (3 dogs and an 18 year old cat!), they understand the importance of a well-trained dog in a busy household.  Drawing from their own experience, they’ve built practical, easy to implement training into all of their programs.  

You deserve dog trainers that understand the demands of your life and have realistic expectations of you and your dog!

How Our Programs Can Help You

We create a tailored training plan for each dog that we work with.  By listening and learning about what’s most important to you and your dog, we come up with a plan to work together to meet your immediate needs and work toward bigger goals.  

The first step in this process is a phone consultation with one of our Senior Trainers so we can gather more information on your dog and you to make a personalized recommendation on the right training path.  

Calls are usually 15-20 minutes in length and are best scheduled through the button below for a time where you are able to give the conversation your full attention.
