We adopted Cookie and quickly learned he had issues such as whining and not getting along with other dogs. Cookie was labeled as "aggressive" after a few incidents. We worked with a trainer for a few weeks but were not seeing any progress. We found Paws To Train Your Dog and after meeting with Troy decided on the board & train Dogcation program. Troy opened our eyes to Cookie's and our own anxiety and taught us how to listen and communicate better with Cookie. Troy has been a tremendous help! He's knowledgable and very quick to respond when we have questions. Thanks Troy! ~ Stephanie & Tom
Having my 3 year old French Bulldog work with Troy was one of the best decisions I have ever made!! The evaluation was worth every penny just to see what he could do in an hour! Then to trust him with my baby for almost a month? Not a doubt in my mind that she was in professional and capable hands!! Since the training, he has been helpful and nothing but a great resource for my Frenchie. I now have a better trained dog (and more importantly, he trained ME on how to be a better owner). I would make the decision to go with Troy 100x over!!! ~ Ryanne Church
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 a dog trainer 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
Troy was amazing and helped us drastically train our dog, Rufus! I was blown away with how much knowledge Troy has and he did an incredible job training our 8-month pup. Rufus struggled with paying attention and being overly excited when seeing other people/dogs. I was blown away to see how great Rufus has been since his 3-week board and train, and even our neighbors are blown away by the difference. Rufus is more understanding of commands, listens 10x better, and is overall a happier pup. I can not thank Troy enough for making a huge positive change in our lives! ~ Jenny Coffey & Stephen Heaslip
When we lost our dear Porter to Lupus, Stella showed little interest with other dogs, began jumping on visitors, pulling on the leash, and either cowered or growled at other dogs. Our residence includes elevators, dogs of all behaviors and breeds, and busy areas. When Stella started barking profusely at other dogs, ignoring me, I contacted Troy out of worry and frustration. We learned we had a fearful dog that was completely confused, and his training could help.

When we picked up Stella, we were given the gift of a relaxed and obedient dog. Over the three weeks she lived with Troy, he regularly posted videos of her progress, transitioned her to a nutritious raw diet, and trained Stella in our building and the surrounding neighborhood to address our biggest stressors. On her final day, he even came to our home to ensure that we knew how to best navigate and embrace our urban environment from Stella's perspective, including the elevators and doorways.
Troy assessed our specific needs, addressed each one and solved them, and is always a phone call or email away when we have a question. We still have much to learn, but we know we have an expert professional that is readily available and genuinely invested in Stella's well-being. We now also have a safe environment to board Stella, and our successes at home are continuing to grow. Thank you Troy! ~ Kristin & Tim Thornton
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
I've trained every dog I've owned, and then I got Bailey. None of my training tricks worked so we reached out to Troy at Paws To Train Your Dog. Each week our training lessons were methodically built upon the previous, and our skills grew to match. We realized he was training us as much as Bailey! Her issues had nothing to do with stubbornness and everything to do with how we communicated with her. As long as you practice, stick to the program, and have patience, you will succeed. Bailey no longer pulls on the leash, is much calmer and generally well behaved. Thanks Troy! ~ Scott & Emily Delia
