About

I’m Georgette Lombardo, the founder of Pawsitive Training ABQ. My passion is providing my clients with personalized, one-on-one attention to help solve the doggie-related problems or challenges they’re facing.


As a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a recommended trainer by Animal Humane New Mexico, and a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (one of only a few in the area), I’m experienced in dealing with a variety of issues and behaviors, ranging from puppy socialization to a fear of strangers. These skills were recognized in Albuquerque the Magazine’s 2016 Best of the City issue as one of the area’s Top 5 Trainers.

I’m committed to force-free, humane training techniques that are highly effective, get real results and are just plain fun. After all, who wants to do something – even if it’s good for you – if it isn’t fun? I keep things simple and talk in a language that’s easy for both dogs and humans to understand. Then I help you and our dog learn how to talk to each other, too. Because, as we all know, communication is the key to any successful relationship!

During our private, in-home training sessions, you’ll not only see your dog’s behavior change and their confidence soar, the trust and bond between you will become stronger than ever before.

Find out how I can help you by visiting my Puppy and Dog Training pages, or by contacting me directly.

I am dedicated to your success!

“I’m Lucy. I love training right along with my brother Rusty. While he’s learning I’m learning too! The clicker is my new best friend. When I hear that click, I know I’m doing something good and I’ll be rewarded. I love seeing Georgette come up the driveway so I can learn something new!”

Clicker Training Overview and FAQs

Why does clicker training work?

Clicker training uses a distinct and consistent signal to mark a desired behavior in real time and then follows that with a motivating reward. Because the dogs understand precisely which action earned the click and the reward, and therefore they learn new behaviors easily, quickly and with lots of enthusiasm.

What results should I expect and when?

We often talk about the “lightbulb moment.” It is the moment you and your dog connect through the sound of the clicker. Communication has been established and it can be as exciting for your dog as it is for you. Most dogs will have this moment – you can see it in their eyes – during the first training session.

Do you have to use the clicker forever?

No, clicker training is used to teach new behaviors. Once the behavior is learned, the clicker is not needed for that particular behavior, although praise and treats are always appreciated. The next time you want to teach a new behavior or brush up on an older one, break out the treats and clicker again.

Will clicker training work with my dog?

Yes, clicker training works with all breeds, types, sizes and ages of dogs. Whether they are a purebred, rescue or adopted dog, this training style works with all of them.
