Here are Mario and Luigi, two Bichons I trained in your area. They were fabulous and trained very well!

I am a premier Ahwatukee dog trainer and behaviorist. I have a lot of students in Ahwatukee, AZ. I am a well known and respected dog trainer and behaviorist for the entire metropolitan area. You can see, by searching the internet, I am asked by the local TV media about dog issues. I am well known in the animal rescue world, and am the Founder of Citizens Animal Welfare Society. I am co-founder of PATCHES, a project to build and operate a privately run animal shelter to supplement what the County does. I do expert witness work for attorneys. I have a partner in another business where we offer specialized therapy dog training and support to various organizations. I don’t use harsh training methods. I’ve trained all ages and a wide variety of breeds in all parts of town. This is a central business area for me, and I’m in the vicinity of your place almost every day. Setting up lessons is as simple as letting me know what you are dealing with, and then arranging an evaluation or lessons, from puppy lessons, to obedience, to behavior modification. I can do lessons at most times of the day, and sessions will be scheduled in relation to where my other appointments are each day (because I have to plan a weekly route, and I HATE being late).

I have trained many dogs in Ahwatukee, AZ. Not only have I conducted numerous private lessons, I have met numerous customers at the local parks (when distractions were necessary). I moved to Phoenix in 1996, and moved to Ahwatukee, so I’m very familiar with this part of town and the challenges you might face. You have a combination of suburban living, plus the issues of living in close quarters with others who may or may not like dogs. I have trained a Bichon, Great Dane, German Shepherd Dog, Catahoula Leopard Dog, Basset Hound, Puggle, Maltese, Miniature Schnauzer, Rottweiler, Labrador Retriever, and a Border Collie mix… and many others. I see and work with a lot of dogs every year!

Currently, I’m training a 3 1/2 lb Yorkie, named “Steve”. He’s so funny, social, a confident puppy. The owner takes him to work with her every day, so he has to be especially well trained. We began lessons in her home, now we are training in public to work distractions.

Let’s set up lessons for your dog. Where are you located? When are you available?
