Training for Happy, Well-Behaved Pets

At St. Francis Pet Resort & Rehabilitation Center in Williamsburg, Virginia, we understand that a well-behaved pet makes for a happy home. That’s why the group is using our facility to provide dog training for your convenience.

Jean Nohle, the Training Director of Perfect Paws Pet Training, is a licensed Therapy Dogs International and Canine Good Citizen evaluator and has more than 16 years of obedience training experience. Jean and her staff teach:

  • Basic obedience classes
  • American Kennel Club S.T.A.R. Puppy Classes that teach you how to communicate with your puppy and give your pet an opportunity to socialize with other puppies. You’ll get tips on housetraining, how to stop unwanted chewing, and how to teach your dog to obey easy commands like “sit” and “stay.”
  • Intermediate classes for those who have graduated from basic obedience classes
  • American Kennel Club Rally Dog Training Classes prepare you for this exciting sport where you and your dog complete a course and are awarded points based upon how well your dog obeys your commands.
  • Outdoor adventure classes
  • Therapy dog testing

“Perfect Paws is dedicated to the use of positive methods of training, guaranteed to strengthen the bond between humans and the dogs they own. Whatever your goals, be they good house manners, obedience, competition, the show ring, or therapy work, the trainers here at Perfect Paws Pet Training will help you achieve these goals.”

For a well-behaved puppy and your peace of mind, contact St. Francis Pet Resort & Rehabilitation Center to get more information about obedience classes or visit Perfect Paws Pet Training for scheduling and registration.

We require the following to be in Training Classes:

  • A current Rabies and Distemper/Parvo vaccine
  • Current on Canine Influenza vaccines to include both H3N2 and H3N8
  • Bordetella vaccine every 6 months
  • A negative fecal parasite exam every 6 months
  • Pet must be on a monthly intestinal parasite treatment such as Sentinel or Heartgard

***All vaccinations must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to Rehabilitation. For the well-being of all who stay with us, no exceptions will be made to this protocol.***

The best there is. Makes me wish I was a dog so I could get treated there!

Best Vet and Pet Resort in Hampton Roads. I live 45 minutes away and only take my dog here. They are always so friendly and definitely take care of your pet! I always feel like Butter is getting taken care of when I am gone. I highly recommend both Godspeed Animal Care and St. Francis Pet Resort!

I found out that my dog had a hot spot, and was able to be seen that day. They are very caring people, from the receptionist to the doctor!

Wonderful place! Crockett was there for doggy playcare. He was happy when I saw him at the end of the day. He came home ate dinner and went to bed! It was a good tiring day !! Thank you!

I always get excellent service from the employees at Godspeed Animal Care. Everyone is helpful and kind, and they treat all animals well. They will get answers to questions I have about my cat and his special diet. Thank you for being my cat's veterinary office.

Everyone was so very friendly and treated Ruffles and Wrinkles like little queens. They mean the world to us, and to see the service and treatment they received only confirmed that Godspeed Animal Care will be their permanent veterinarian service. Thanks to all!
