Paws of Change Behavior & Training

Hi, I'm ​​Melissa Chow, a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and Canine Behaviorist (CBCC). I've been working with dogs for over 15 years. About 6 years ago like so many people, I found myself at a loss with my foster dog who had serious behavioral issues. I was determined to do the best for her so of course I went to google, tv shows, and listened to tons of suggestions from others, but nothing was working so I went to a Professional Canine Behaviorist & Trainer.  While working with her I found my passion in studying and helping dogs remain with or find loving families.

My approach is based on providing positive and effective training and behavior modification.  I focus on educating and rehabilitating canines with families and those without so that every person and every dog can have that irreplaceable bond with each other.

Professionally, I'm a Certified Canine Behaviorist (CBCC), Certified Professional Trainer, and Professional Member of the Pet Professionals Guild. I'm insured and blessed to serve my community.
