Mercedes is a sweet Rottweiler I trained in Glendale, AZ. Don’t let that serious look fool you! She started out as a bit of a challenge, but is now just the sweetest dog you can imagine. And I have become friends with the owner.

I’m a premier Glendale dog trainer and behaviorist. I have a lot of students in Glendale, 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’ve trained a lot of dogs in Glendale, from the Boxer that the owner couldn’t walk from the front door to the street (and would run away when she got loose), to the Rottweiler (and now I’m good friends with the owner), to the silver Labrador Retriever (I’ve also become friends with them, too).

The Boxer was a tough case. She was not trained and about a year old when I met her. Her owner had Parkinson’s (he has since passed away), which complicated and made it dangerous controlling her. She was a total hard head and brat when I met her, jumping up on you, grabbing your arms with her teeth (the owner had slash marks and scabs all over his forearms when I first met him), and she’d run away if she got out the front door. We got all that solved. One Thanksgiving, about a year after the lessons, the grandkids came over, and the dog got out the front door and ran across the street to visit the dog next door. The owners live on one of those huge lots in Glendale, and so do the neighbors. The owner just had to call out the “Come” Command, and she immediately came back and they got her back inside. And then I got the “Thank You” email the next week telling me how happy she was so well trained. And the owner could also take her safely on walks in public and around traffic without fear of falling or being pulled into oncoming traffic. And I have other cool stories.

One of my most recent students has a black female Chihuahua. We trained her to be a therapy dog. As with all my therapy dog students, we spent extra time on all the minute details necessary to do a good job. At first, she started out a bit timid, was a jumper, and didn’t know any commands. Finally, she and the owner were ready for testing. Of course, she passed the first time, and is now doing therapy work. She is now all smiles, very well mannered, and very obedient.

You want an evaluation, or lessons? Give me a call! Where are you located? When are you available?
