Meet Dakota

Founder & Lead Trainer

I founded One Paw Forward in 2020 amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the fact that I had found my "Dream Job" training Guide Dogs for visually impaired Americans across the US, restrictions due to the pandemic forced me to take a leap of faith in a direction toward my new dream, Founder and Lead Trainer of One Paw Forward Dog Training.

Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe my style. I know each animal is different, and I’ll work with yours to give them guidance that is tailored to their needs.

I specialize in personalized one-on-one private dog training, this way your dog gets the one on one attention that they deserve, and can learn in a safe and worry-free environment. Private lessons also mean that you, your dogs leader, can learn in a distraction-free environment with unlimited support.

Here's how it works- schedule a completely free phone consultation with us online via our website or instagram @opf_training and we will reach out to you to help you move you and your dogs life "One Paw Forward."
