We survived a sticky summer and have made it to fall.   This is a super time of year to train your dog outside!  I wanted to touch base and share my new phone number.   I am trying to get my website updated, but it is taking time - FTP issues.   My new number is 828-817-8446.  If you need help within 30-40 minutes of Columbus, NC, I would love to help you with any training and behavior issues.   

If you are into competition obedience or interested in it, check out for class information.   I teach classes there with LouAnn.   It is a lovely facility!

If you were a competition student back in Idaho, I will be working with another student in a week or so to work on remote lesson via your cell phone or tablet.   Stand by!  I have some fun training I'd love to share!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Precision K-9, LLC of the Carolinas

June 2021 - Precision K-9, LLC in Columbus, NC started up!  

Here I am starting over!  Wow!   If you have found this page via my website or a recommendation, please feel free to peruse earlier posts.   Most training info is on my website at

I have loads of experience and I am excited to help dog owners in the Carolinas!  

Methods:  I don't have A method, I have many.   If one way of doing things doesn't work, I can always help another way.   I will be honest about what I feel works best and/or quickest, but will also work with you to do what works best for you and your dog.  My training is definitely balanced.   Dogs need to know what is good and the bad.  Clear leadership from us.   We need to let them know what is good and what isn't.

I want you to have fun with your dog.   If you need help, get in touch.

APRIL 2021

 The time has come for me to head to NC.   We leave Sunday the 11th.   I will continue to post here, so keep watch in case I have information for you.   A couple things:

A student with the super nice GSD named Teal'c (Brittany) is going to teach some lessons with guidance from me.   She will make a super trainer!   We all start out at year 1.   If you would like some one-on-one help from her, let me know and I will hook you up with her.

Review the MARCH post for other training info.

Jim started a FB page, Treasure Valley K9 Group (Paula's Gang) - request to join that.   He is going to post when able to get together so you can all still see each other and train.   You can video anything you'd like me to review, help you with or for me to just see how great things are.  ;)   I will continue to support you all.   Email or text.   We can video back and forth.   We can Zoom.   The zoom stuff will take me a few weeks to be ready for.   (week to get to NC and a few weeks to get moved in)

I will miss everyone!  It has been my pleasure.  I am sad to leave you and excited about this new chapter at the same time.   Watch FB and here.   Take care.  Ask yourself "What would Paula tell me to do?"  

LOVE YA'LL!!!!!!  💖

I will be available for email help, feel free to contact me.   Also, if someone wants to, they can keep up with an email list of my people to plan get togethers to train.  Glenda (mentioned below) is happy to host them at her place just off the interstate in Nampa (near Robinson/Interstate).  Of you can plan to meet at parks.   Training together can help keep you motivated.   :)

Keith with Total K9 for one-on-one training help.   He is a great guy.   

Stacey does agility classes (D4 Dog Agility) and is not freaky about prong collars or saying no.   Her info is:  208-484-1665 cell, 208-336-3413 salon (dog grooming)

AnyTime Agility, contact Glenda Ausmus 208-954-9113  She hosts free and low cost open agility practice.   She has a wonderful set up with shelter, shade, space and sometimes drinks, etc are offered.   Check with her.
