Valley of the Sun will take ANY behavioral case, whether your dog is just poor-mannered or the neighborhood terror!

Our in-home training programs give your dog the opportunity to begin their behavioral journey in their familiar territory, while also giving owners the ability to properly set things up for their dog so that they may better focus and progress in training. After establishing a solid foundation, our Phoenix dog trainer will show both dog and owners how to succeed in training, even among distractions or other problem-causing stimuli. This is our way of ensuring that your dog’s good behavior is not just limited to inside the home…but ANYWHERE!
