Train with Muddy Paws
And step into a joyful life with your dog
Muddy Paws is rooted in science and modern based methods of training. This means that we train based off the understanding of dog behavior and cognition.
Muddy Paws is run by a training professional who has experience training both exotic and domestic animals as well as working as a veterinary technician. We focus on positive reinforcement, centered on choice, and rooted in compassion.
We understand the challenges that you are facing with your dog and are here to help you and your pet live happy lives together and understanding each other.
Why Should You Work With Me?
I set up Muddy Paws Training and Behavior to offer the people and pets of Colorado a reliable and fun method of training.
I know that your pet is unique and so your training plan should be unique too. At Muddy Paws I start off by getting to know you and your pet on a personal level, understand the problems you are dealing with, and learn the training goals you have. From there I personalize a training plan that fits those and goals and fits your schedule.
As we move through the training process your success is of utmost importance to me which is why you have full 24/7 access to me during your training journey.
Muddy Paws Training and Behavior is a fully certified business, and I also regularly consult with local veterinarians to make sure that my methods and nutritional and medical advice are 100% up to date and correct. I take your pet’s health and well being as seriously as humanly possible!
I believe that owning a pet is an amazing and rewarding experience, but also a responsibility, not a luxury. Training your pet properly will lead you to a greater understanding of your dog and build a life long trusting relationship.
I firmly believe in the owner-pet relationship being one of mutual understanding and respect. I immerse you fully in the training process, and with this approach, I find that owners end up learning as much, if not more, than their pets.

About Your Next Favorite Dog Trainer
Hi! My name is Cassie and I’ve been training the animals of Denver since 2016. I have my bachelors degree in Zoology and Animal Behavior. I began my career at the Downtown Aquarium determined to take care of marine life. I began as a volunteer and was working my way up the ladder when I got a job offer from the Denver Zoo. Being fresh and eager to advance my career I took the job and became a trainer. However while I was there something just felt off. I spent the next couple years getting trained at animal clinics and working various jobs trying to find the right path. A friend of mine then reached out about training questions for her new puppy and everything began to click. I left the exotic animal world behind, picked up my clicker and training treats and stepped into my new role as a dog trainer and I haven't looked back!
What our clients have to say
Cassie is an amazing trainer! The way she explains dog behavior makes things so clear and easy to understand. We had such a hard time getting on the same page as our dog Josie. With Cassie's help we have been living wonderfully for months - even after we finished our training sessions.
