About Our School


Paws-itively Obedient, owned and operated by Valli Rovenolt, is located on Route 44 between McEwensville and Turbotville, PA. Built in 2004, the 4800 sq. ft. facility is heated and fully matted allowing classes to be held year round. An additional training building was built in 2011 to offer more classes and new programs. Seminars and free community education days are offered throughout the year. Both buildings can be rented; please contact us for rates and more information.

With commitment to the training process you can build a bond and working relationship based on kindness, consistency, compassion and trust. Your pet will learn to respect you as a fair leader and will become a happy and willing companion, eager to learn for a lifetime.

I can’t believe I’ve been training with Valli for almost a decade. I just wanted to do puppy classes and then move on to beginner agility and obedience. It just mushroomed from there and kept right on going.
