    Helping you become your dog's best friend
Welcome to 4 Positive Paws
Run by husband and wife team Jim and Belinda Melvin, 4 Positive Paws is a well-established dog training business providing training classes, 1-2-1 training and agility sessions, in and around York. Its positive training techniques, taught by a professionally qualified animal behaviourist, are designed to make you your dog's best friend, and the focus of its world; and your dog an attentive, well-behaved member of your family.
1-2-1 Training
With 1-2-1 training, we come to you, and work on whatever particular training needs you have.
Training Classes
Our training classes are run in small groups so that everyone gets some individual attention.
Agility Sessions
Why not try our agility sessions – fun and exercise for both you and your dog.
We can advise you on different dog breeds, what to look for and where to buy from.

I can ...


New for 2019 - sessions for you and your dog to have fun and progress your training at your own rate: I can - use my nose; I can - learn new things; I can - be calm. These are exclusively for dogs that we have already worked with, either in classes or through 1-2-1 training.

Perfect Fit Harnesses


We are pleased to announce that we are now stockists for Perfect Fit Harnesses - the type recommended by vets, trainers and behaviourists.

Rewarding your dog


It's important that you continue to praise and reward your dog for carrying out good behaviours.
