Welcome to Paws for Applause

If you have a new puppy, are a first time dog owner or have perhaps adopted a shelter dog and you’re looking for guidance on how to have a calm, happy and well-behaved dog, then you’ve come to the right place!

Obedience training is crucial in developing and maintaining a healthy relationship with your best friend. The benefits that obedience training offers are endless, and with plenty of practice and patience, you will have a fun and rewarding experience with your dog, and most importantly, a happy and confident dog.

It is not uncommon for dog owners to experience doggy behaviors such as barking, chewing, pulling on a leash and toilet accidents to name a few. At Paws For Applause we fully understand just how frustrating, and at times embarrassing, such behaviors can be.

So how can we help?

Our licensed, US-certified canine training specialist will be happy to visit you at your home for a one on one consultation. During this consult, we will do the following:

  • Understand your pain points and areas where you require our expertise
  • Understand your dog’s behavior to get to the root cause of the problem you’re facing
  • Recommend a suitable training plan using only positive training methods to help you achieve the results you are looking for.
If you are happy with your consultation and wish to work further with our training specialist on the recommended training plan, sign up for a Transformational Package to get you and your dog going with basic obedience.

About


Hello! I’m Lesley Ann DSouza



I’d love to be your personal dog trainer. Allow me to tell you a little about myself.

I am the owner and canine training specialist of Paws For Applause and have lived in Dubai for most of my life. I began my career in the banking industry where I worked for over 15 years until I decided to follow my passion and establish my own dog training business.

Having trained my first pet Labrador, Hunter, I was very eager to expand my knowledge about training and caring for dogs. After months of research, I decided that Triple Crown Academy (now Starmark Academy for Professional Dog Trainers ) in Texas, USA had an impressive yet extensive training program. I graduated my course and received my certification in Canine Obedience and Behavior Modification.

My goal as a passionate dog lover is to help reduce the number of abandoned and unwanted dogs by educating dog owners through my obedience training programs.

What does Paws for Applause do?

We are a licensed dog training business providing in-home dog obedience services, to help you and your dog enjoy many happy and healthy years together.

Our services are conducted in the convenience of your home in order to offer you personalized and friendly instructions on how to teach your dog. One on one time with our canine training specialist means that you can ask questions, receive demonstrations, practice obedience training and receive instant and specific feedback.
