What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
When I first got my French bulldog, Zara, she wasn't listening to commands, would jump on people and furniture. I stuggled with walking her on a leash and was concerned about her interactions with other dogs. I met with Troy and right away he was able to calm Zara down. I was amazed by how quickly Zara responded to him. After Troy trained Zara, she now listens to me and is so well-behaved that she is able to go to work with me everyday! Im very happy and I recommend Troy at Paws to Train your Dog for any dog training needs! He truly is amazing at what he does and treats your dog as his own! ~ Abby Abdelfattah | Phoenix Az
Barnaby cowered when anyone tried to pet him, was afraid of his doggy-door and loud noises, and had separation anxiety. He would hear a dog bark or see a person walk in front of the house and go nuts. He lunged and bit a few dogs and even some family members. We went through a few trainers and began to think that nothing could be done. Troy helped Barnaby learn to be off leash and coexist around other dogs and people! Barnaby began sniffing and actually playing with other dogs like a normal, well adjusted dog! He is a calmer, happier dog. Thank you Troy! ~ Darryl & Betty Oesterle | Glendale Az
Bailey lunged, growled, and barked at other dogs. Walking her was a nightmare. We felt we were in over our heads and we were expecting our first child. After searching for board and train near me, we met with Troy and on the first day he had her playing with other dogs and being a good girl on a leash. It was amazing! Troy showed us how to keep her calm and now we feel comfortable and in control, walks are enjoyable, and we can trust her around our kids. We are thrilled that Troy continues to help us when we struggle with any issues. We highly recommend Paws To Train Your Dog! ~ Briana & Chris Dvorchak | Phoenix Az
We struggled with our little Hobbit barking and jumping on visitors, not listening to us, and being aggressive towards other dogs. Retired and traveling in our RV, we wanted him to behave. We looked for a dog trainer in Phoenix and found Troy. We were so impressed with his knowledge, commitment, and methods! He spends as much time educating us as he does Hobbit. We always leave feeling good about what we've learned and look forward to the next session. Thank you Troy for making this world a better place for dogs and their owners! You're the best! ~ Jan & John Petrie | Peoria Az
We were having trouble with our puppy, Koda, trying to get her to calm down and listen to us. She caught on to tricks but we struggled with basic obedience. We searched for a puppy trainer near Scottsdale and found Troy at Paws To Train Your Dog. Troy is patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. After a few lessons (and lots of practice at home!) Koda is walking without pulling and obeying commands. Koda is now a happier, calmer and more confident pup! We can't say enough about how positive this experience has been for all of us. Thank you, Troy!!! ~ Sarah & Chaz Feuerborn | Scottsdale Az
After searching for a puppy trainer near me, we met with Troy. He has been an amazing help with our new puppy! His knowledge and commitment are second to none! He worked with us to help make Stanley's transition to his forever home a smooth one. Troy has always been available for follow-up lessons and email advice after the training to encourage us and answer any questions that have come up. I highly recommend Troy for puppy training! ~ Beth & Don Schmal | Phoenix Az
Happiness is having Huck so well behaved! Huck had OCD, chasing his tail, keeping balls & rocks in his mouth, would jump up on the kitchen counters, and was aggressive toward dogs and people. When we dropped him off for training, Huck launched over the driver seat, lunging, snarling, and barking at Troy. I must give a HUGE shout out to Troy at Paws to Train your Dog -amazing work with Huck- he is a new dog! Now when visitors come over, he doesn't bark or go crazy trying to attack them, I am in heaven! He obeys my commands and is calm - many thanks Troy! ~ Age Drago | Tempe Az
Sinbad was not good around kids and we were expecting a baby. When family came over, we were not sure if he wanted to hurt them, we just did not trust him, so we locked him away. We already invested a lot of time and money in trainers who couldn't help when we found Troy at Paws To Train Your Dog. Sinbad still gets excited, but he's now the best trained dog we ever had. I can walk him with our baby in the stroller without any trouble, they are now best buddies! Thank you again Troy for all your help! ~ Shawn & Carolin | Phoenix Az
Why Training Your Dog is Important
The day you bring a new dog into your home, your dog is learning every moment, with or without your help. What may appear as cute behaviors now may not be cute later. Without clear and consistent communication, dogs can become anxious and confused about what is expected of them. As dogs become more desperate to understand how to live peacefully with you, their behaviors can make you crazy.
Many dog owners ask: How do I get my dog to stop chewing and destroying furniture or my favorite shoes, biting me, getting into the trash, urinating or leaving "deposits" in my home, digging up our yard, stealing food or clothing, jumping, humping, chasing, bolting out the door, whining or barking incessantly, and pulling on the leash. Without training, some dogs can become fearful of everything, develop separation anxiety, or have difficulty getting along with other dogs or people, even displaying aggression.
Know that your dog is not trying to give you a hard time, but is actually just having a hard time and needs your help. Our training programs will help your dog learn to be a well-behaved member of your family.
