How many times have you given your dog a command only to find him ignoring you until you have to repeat yourself, raise your voice, or physically force him to respond? Many of you tell us, “my dog won’t do what I ask unless I am standing there with food in my hand”. This lack of respect can lead to behavior problems including house soiling, destructiveness, aggressiveness, wildness, etc. Why suffer with a dog that behaves only when he feels like it, when you can join the millions of dog owners who have discovered the joy and satisfaction of living with a well trained dog?

We are Certified, Insured, Professional, experienced dog trainers. When you decide on us, what you see is what you get! If you are surfing the internet for a dog trainer, go do some research at “WHO IS” and look into the new web sites from new dog trainers in the area, look at our sites,(;  We are Arizona’s Dogs Best Friends Since 1976 !

We love what we do, and quite simply, we do it the best… and it shows through thousands of satisfied Arizona dog owners.
