What Clients Are Saying About Us!
My little Bandit started being aggressive to other dogs, lunging, growling, barking while walking him. I tried all kinds of things and nothing was working. After 2 training lessons with Troy, the walk was so much easier. My Bandit even walked between two large dogs - no aggression - no fear - it was wonderful! I've taken him back to the petstores many times and he now ignores other dogs - no lunging - no pulling. Oh, he also used to roll in cat poop (ferals are getting into my backyard) and Troy showed me in a matter of minutes how to stop this - it works! Thank you Troy! ~ Dory Pemberton
My Toby was aggressive toward people which was very stressful and scary. I looked for the best Phoenix dog trainer near me and met with Troy. When we arrived, Toby was lunging at Troy, but he was able to calm Toby and had him walking quietly on a leash within 10-15 min. We learned Toby's behavior was fear based, not real aggression. Troy truly cares about dogs and knows how to communicate with them. We know understand our dog and have the skills for helping him. I am so happy and pleased with the amazing progress Toby has made. I highly recommend Troy to anyone looking for a dog trainer! ~ Marisa Arroyo
When I first got my French bulldog, Zara, she wasn't listening to me, 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. Now she is so well-behaved that I can take her 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... [read more]
*update: due to changes in my home, I could no longer keep Zara. I miss her dearly, but I know she is happy living with Troy and his pack!
We struggled at home with our little Hobbit barking and jumping on visitors, not listening to us, and being aggressive towards other dogs. Retired and now traveling in our RV, we wanted him to behave. I looked for a professional dog trainer near me and found Troy. We were so impressed with his knowledge, commitment, and training 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 lesson. Thank you Troy for making this world a better place for dogs and their owners! You're the best! ~ Jan & John Petrie
I could not be happier with the changes Troy made with my Jakey. Before meeting with Troy, Jakey was a challenge. He would not listen to any commands, taking things and chewing them up, he darted back and forth and pulled when walking. If I had not sent him to Paws To Train Your Dog, I would have been faced with finding him another home, which simply wasn't something I could do. Troy saved our relationship and I can't imagine my life without my well trained and happy little guy. I would highly recommend Troy to anyone that needs help with their dog. Thanks, Troy! ~ Rhonda Cronk
Gus and I have gained so much confidence over the last couple months. Gus, a 2 year old pit mix, struggled with dog reactivity issues and a bite history, and Troy has helped us immensely. Troy saw the potential in Gus and I finally got to see him really start to make improvements. I'm so happy I decided to go with this training. It has helped not only Gus, but also myself to better understand what goes on in his mind and how to guide him through stressful situations. I would absolutely recommend Troy! ~ Brooke Bolger
Troy is professional, responsive and caring. We worked with multiple trainers before finding Troy. Where others could not help, he did. Training our dog has been hard work. We needed to dedicate time, energy and a whole lot of patience to the process. Real, lasting results to help your dog are not easy to come by when dealing with tough behavior issues - but Troy guides you through the process, takes his time explaining his methods and supports you throughout the way. Thanks, Troy! ~ Domenico & Erin
Sadie had anxiety & fear, destroying and escaping her crate, would ALWAYS pull on her leash, and acted aggressively if she saw another dog! It was so stressful for us! After Sadie stayed with Troy for a few weeks, we were so incredibly happy! When she returned home, I was amazed Sadie was not pulling, I was able to walk her on my own!! She was a completely different dog, so calm and relaxed. She now enjoys her crate and plays with other dogs! Sadie is also amazing with our daughters, a family dog! I have fallen even more in love with my baby!!! Thank you Troy! ~ Catherine Khan
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 in-home 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
