At Applause Your Paws (AYP), we have always believed that dogs are more than just pets; they are family. This deep-rooted passion for our dogs has been the driving force behind our journey to becoming the “Best of Florida” according to Guide to Florida, an honor we proudly share with all our clients and their four-legged friends.

Our Founder’s Vision

AYP was founded by Dee Hoult, a highly experienced dog trainer and behavior consultant. Her vision was simple yet powerful: to transform the lives of dogs and their owners through comprehensive, compassionate, and effective dog training. This vision ignited a spark that would ultimately set us on the path to excellence in canine education.

Dedication to Canine Wellness

What sets AYP apart is our unwavering commitment to the wellness of dogs. Our training programs are not just about teaching obedience or addressing behavioral issues; they’re designed to enhance the overall quality of life for you and your dog. We firmly believe that a happy, well-mannered dog is a joy to be around, and our training methods reflect this philosophy.

Award-Winning Training Programs

At AYP, we offer a wide range of dog training programs tailored to meet the unique needs of each dog and owner. Whether you have an energetic puppy, a shy rescue dog, or just want to improve your dog’s manners, we have a program for you. 

Some of our most popular programs include:

Puppy Kindergarten:

A strong foundation for a well-behaved adult dog starts with early socialization and training.

Basic Obedience:

Strengthen your bond with your dog while teaching essential commands like sit, stay, and recall.

Behavior Modification:

Resolve behavioral issues such as aggression, anxiety, and fear with our proven techniques.

Advanced Training: 

Elevate your dog’s skills with advanced obedience and trick training.


Positive Reinforcement

One of our key principles at AYP is the use of positive reinforcement training methods. Our experienced trainers employ science-backed techniques to reward desired behaviors, making learning enjoyable for dogs. This approach not only yields impressive results but also strengthens the bond between dogs and their owners.

Client-Centric Approach

Our commitment to excellence extends to our clients. We understand that every dog and owner is unique, so we take the time to create personalized training plans to ensure success. Your satisfaction and the well-being of your dog are at the heart of everything we do.

Community Engagement

AYP is not just a dog training center; we are an active part of the local community. We organize workshops, seminars, and events to educate pet owners and promote responsible dog ownership. Giving back and making Florida a better place for dogs and their families is a core part of our mission.

Awards and Accolades

Guide to Florida’s voters recognition of AYP as the “Best of Florida” in dog training is an incredible honor.
