About

We have two dogs. One is a female, three year old Pitbull mix named Katy and the other is a one year old male Rottweiler/German shepherd mix named Wally. Both are rescues. We first contacted Nate after taking in Wally. He was a very sick pup found by our daughter on the reservation. Thankfully we were able to tackle his advanced case of tick fever. Once Wally learned what it felt like to be healthy, we saw his true out of control colors. Walking him was a nightmare because he went crazy every time he saw a rabbit or bird. His favorite place to sleep was on our kitchen table. Everything (rugs, clothing, and pictures on shelves) was considered to be a toy that he felt needed to be destructed. Furthermore, once Wally came into our house, our once sweet and demure Katy decided that she needed to start acting up on walks as well; she turned into a bucking bronco if we were anywhere near another dog. Nate provided us with in-home training, with direct training while actually out walking the dogs, and with training while at the park around other dogs. Nate demonstrated techniques and then observed us do the same. As a result of Nate’s direct training with our dogs, his demonstrations with our dogs, his analysis of our actions, the education he provided us about dog psychology, and a lot of training/follow through on our part we now have two different family members. Just last night, Katy and I sat on a hill near the dog park at Pecos Park and watched out-of-control dogs come in and out of the area and pass us by. Katy sat, good as gold, just enjoying the sights  While Wally still loves his toys, he now knows what he can and what he can’t play with and when it is ok to go crazy with his toys. We will continue to train and follow through with what Nate taught us but the difference in our household in less than 3 months has been amazing! We obviously highly recommend Nate for dog training services…..so do Katy and Wally!

About

We used Thumbtack to get quotes on dog training and were very impressed with the process and how responsive Hunter Canine was. Andrew answered all of our questions, was super easy going and really stood out from the rest of the trainers we interviewed. We chose in-home training for our 15-week-old puppy because my husband and I had never had a dog before and were clueless. We could not believe how quickly Andrew taught Henri to walk on the leash and to be a good boy in his crate! Andrew was calm, patient and very nice - we can't wait until our next training session with Andrew and highly recommend Hunter Canine.

Since most dog training is for the owners and not the pet, Cat knows how to train both animal and owner. What I love about her methods is that they are all non aggressive or punitive. She could be Scottsdale's Dog Whisper she is so good.

My dog and I went to agility training and plan to go back in the fall. Sundog is amazing with the dogs and my dog has so much fun. You can tell that Ron and Michele are dog lovers who care for the dogs. They make training fun but still very productive. I cannot express how much my dog and I appreciate them.

We came to Galen with a 1.5 year old Lab mix rescue named Murphy. We were not up to the challenges he came with - resource guarding, alpha and defiant behaviors aka general civil disobedience. We had no control. We tried to gain authority with basic obedience classes at PetCo but soon realized we needed more help when he snapped in defiance and over things he "hoovered" off the ground. Their treat based training did not work for us as he knew when we did or did not have the treats. So when Galen came to the house for the intro/demo and said things like "one command, one response" and not a treat based program, I was on board. Her training methods were effective, direct, and matched the level of need. I gave her a crazy wish-list of things I want of a family dog that far exceeded even my best dog in the past and she didn't even blink. No problem. You will have that dog. Really? Yes. She worked with him for 2 weeks but the heavy lifting was on the people training she did with us and him. This is where it had to click. Through this, she was patient, clear, direct, and reassuring. She explained the "why" behind what he was doing. Murphy is a nice little member of the family now instead of the frustration and stressful inducing dog that we wanted to send back to the shelter (not easy to admit that but it was that bad). I highly recommend Galen. When people say what a nice dog he is and how well behaved he is, how walking him is a joy not an event, I know the time, money, and work paid off. This IS an investment but you can't lose unless you don't do your part. Now, he still offers challenges now and again but we are now better equipped to handle what he has got up his sleeve. Galen is GREAT at her job with these challenging behavioral issues and fully endorse her work. There is no reason to not have a well behaved, well adjusted dog with Galen around. I have my wish-list dog.

About

I specialize in individual, one-on-one training with dogs with a variety of issues, including dog-to-dog aggression, housebreaking, obedience, leash walking, poor come/recall and bolting. Lessons are tailored to client's needs, and individual lessons keep sessions down and costs at minimal with no contract. I have gotten excellent feedback with my tailoring lessons to the clients' specific needs and the lack of cookie cutter lessons found in group and big box pet store lesson programs.

About

We provide dog boarding, day care and training services in your home or at our facility. We have been voted "Best Dog Trainer" in Phoenix for two years in a row. We understand you love your dog, but your dog does some things (maybe lots of things) you are not happy with such as jumping on you, your company or the kitchen counter, running out the door, stealing your stuff, digging holes in your yard, and sometimes nastier things like growling and nipping at strangers, or even you and your family. You can change your dog's behavior with kind and effective methods of dog training in your home in Phoenix, Arizona, or at our training center.

Become the leader of your pack! With over 30 years experience, DogNanny 911 offers insight into a complete guide of everything you always wanted to know about your dog. The training is easy to understand and offers incredible outcomes. We provide quality dog training and behavioral modification. The methods and techniques used are based on canine hierarchy education. Dogs and owners alike learn to communicate and to live a happy life together, in a so called "Artificial Pack". Owners learn how to prevent issues from being accidentally created, the "Know-How" on trouble shooting and elimination of issues. The modern approach leaves no place for harsh, out-dated training ideas. Choker chains and prong collars are prohibited (including shock collars). No food during the training exercises. Obedience commands and utilization of such will be used, nor clickers. Dog treats are given after the session is over! As canine communicator, DogNanny 911 will teach owners how to read their dogs, to understand dogs better and to keep dogs with their families. There is always a training solution, surrendering dogs to shelters and rescues for easy to fix issues. Isn’t.
