Dog trainer
No matter the size or breed, dog training is important…right from the start we always hear, “Oh, when he/she gets bigger, we’ll work on it.” Alas, they grow quickly, and bad habits grow with them. By the time that your carpet needs cleaning every week, new blinds installed monthly and your shoes are missing like the socks from your washer or dryer…it’s almost too late. Remember, we had training as we grew, and so do your pets. Even if you don’t use a trainer, good manners start at home. Training is bonding and they love it!

AZ Dog Sports
AZ Dog Sports believes a guardian should never give up on a dog for bad behavior, because behavior can be redirected with patience and the right education. They pride themselves on using APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers) guidelines and are also veterinary approved and endorsed.
