I’ve trained many dogs, performed evaluations and behavior modification in Sun City, 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).

Maybe you are on a fixed income, yet your dog is destroying your place by peeing and pooping inside. Or your dog is a jumper. Or barks too much. Or pulls too hard on the leash. Or isn’t friendly with strangers. We can work on all of that. Not every dog needs an full obedience program, just needs some fixing on a few issues. We can target your dog’s needs and make the training much more affordable. Or maybe you want to train your dog to be a therapy dog… then I have a program for that, as well.

I had a student in Sun City who had purchased a hunting bred Golden Retriever for her and her husband. But, it wasn’t really a good fit for their home… it was waaaaaayyy too much for them to handle. They found a new home for that pup, and then got a milder Australian Shepherd, which DID fit their lifestyle, living here part of the year and in Idaho the other half of the year. Once they got the right pet for their home, not only did the training proceed well, but the owner got the results they wanted. Dog training, no matter how good, can’t fix everything, and not all dogs fit into every home. I always give this advice: get a dog like yourself. This first pup was a powderkeg of energy and intelligence, and he just wasn’t bred to sit around by the fireplace and go for a short walk once a day. He was bred to hunt, and that’s where he would excel. I was honest with the owners and told them why they were having so many troubles.

You want great training? Then I’m the person to call. Where are you located? When are you available?
