Turk is a pit bull / mastiff mix I trained in Gilbert, AZ. Turk completed Basic Obedience I and II and is a fine working dog. He can go anywhere, and is great with other animals, kids, family, friends… everything. All the bad stuff you hear about pits and pit mixess is usually the result of people being irresponsible with their dogs.

I am a Gilbert AZ dog trainer and behaviorist. I am a well known and respected Phoenix dog trainer and behaviorist for the entire metropolitan area. I have a lot of students in Gilbert, AZ. 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). You get the full range of services I provide, and get priority in terms of my schedule.

I also live in Gilbert, so I’m very familiar with this community and it’s dog training needs. This also means I can offer you prime time for lessons such as mornings and evenings during the week, and prime weekend schedules. I also do outdoor lessons at local parks, and we may do some lessons there if we need to. As I write this article, I’m just finishing up with an awesome pit bull / mastiff male. We did a number of dog training lessons at a local dog park because he needed to work well around other dogs. He wasn’t afraid of other dogs… but if another dog got in his face and challenged him, he was not going to tolerate that. I also worked a terrific Australian Shepherd mix in Gilbert this summer. The dog started out impossible to walk in public around other dogs, and also bit me on my pant leg (just missing the skin) when I first entered the house. The owners had been avoiding the building problems with their dog up to that point, until it became obvious that something serious had to be done. Oh, and the dog was getting in fights with other dogs in the home. All that is now solved, and the owners have even asked that I house sit for them on their honeymoon next year, which I agreed to do as a favor (I am not in the house sitting business, but I will do that for friends, and these folks have become my friends).

Let’s schedule your Gilbert AZ dog for training today. Where are you located and when are you available?
