How do I get started?
(Easy Evaluation Process!)
  • Start by filling out our contact form and tell us about your dog! Once we hear from you, we will ask you to provide us the following:
    1) Vaccination/medical records
    2) Proof of ownership
  • Once we receive everything, we'll schedule your dog's evaluation. We're available 7 days a week, during normal business hours, and by appointment only. Our calendar fills up quickly, so for specific days and times there may be a waiting period.
    Evaluation fee: $150*
    (Includes behavior consultation)
    *Not applied toward cost of training program
  • Evaluations are typically 2-3 hours and are conducted at our home facility, located in Phoenix near 40th St & Thomas. We will first observe your dog's behaviors and how you interact with your dog. We will then get to know each other a little bit as we discuss your dog's behaviors and what you've been doing so far. It's important that you are comfortable with us before you sign up for dog training, and that we can see you are going to be excited and committed to training your dog. Know that you will not be turned away as long as you and your family follow the training program we outline for you.
    Once we complete your dog's assessment, we will then discuss which dog training program, tools, and methods will work best for you and your dog, and what your investment will be. If you choose to move forward and sign up, we’ll schedule your dog training sessions. If not, you will leave with invaluable information about your dog, from a trusted professional.
