About Desert Sky K9 Training & Boarding

Puppy/Dog training and boarding - Desert Sky K9 - Mark Govoni

Why do I need my dog trained?

You are constantly conditioning and training your dog to avoid others and to perform specific behaviors, whether you realize it or not. In training dogs, timing is crucial. Dogs don't know what behavior is acceptable, expected, or undesirable until they are taught through patience, repetition, and positive reinforcement. Many people encounter problems with their dogs because they simply don't understand how to correctly reinforce positive behavior or expect dogs to already know right from wrong. But dogs don't.

How can Desert Sky K9 help?

We train dogs, so that they can be the healthier, happier, and more well-adjusted companions their owners have always envisioned them to be. The dogs we train are pets you will be proud to take anywhere. Desert Sky K9 training is designed to establish a solid foundation, using conventional and modern techniques that are proven to create successful training programs. We use the universal voice commands, which could be in English, French, Dutch or German, positive reinforcement, and hand signals. We place great emphasis on teaching and showing dogs as they go through the training, instilling enthusiasm, confidence, and reliability. Dogs achieve a clear understanding of what is expected and learn through success and repetition.

Desert Sky K9 training develops dogs' natural talents, and with the right training, dogs' temperaments are not damaged. In fact, it is quite the opposite.

Please be very careful of whom you hire to come to your home. When hiring dog trainers, look for licensed professionals, check references and credentials, know the type of training they use, and do not pay in full for services that you have not yet received. When you pay, make sure there is a contract, receipt, or proof of services. Do a background check, check their names on the BBB directory, and respond only to those who have names or phone numbers you can call.

We also provide trained protection dogs and import service. Please call with your inquiry.

* We are licensed, certified, vet recommended, and an A+ BBB accredited business.

* We have an award-winning trainer and behaviorist, Mark Govoni.

    I would highly recommend Mark Govoni at Desert Sky K9 All Breed Training.
    They have a wonderful team there that will efficiently train your dog.
    Armani is a large great dane that needs proper training and Mark instilled
    an eagerness in her to want to learn even more techniques. She has retained what
    she learned at Desert Sky and we continue to build on that.
    Thank you,
    Tina Siegel
