My husband and I weren't really sure what to expect and we were both pleasantly surprised. The training was not at all what we were used to, it was performed in a series of games and activities and both of our dogs picked up on it really quickly. Over the course of our training we noticed that our dogs were a lot more responsive, attentive and happier to be doing what we wanted. As soon as I would get the treats and start the at home follow up from our training sessions our dogs would be smiling and wagging their tails. For this type of training, the more you put into it the more you and your dogs will get back. I would definitely recommend Jaime and Play Your Way Obedience
So far I've been very impressed with Dog Squad U. I really liked the YouTube videos of dog training in action. I was able to get a great feel for how the the trainer works with the dogs and their owners! I had a great idea of what to expect and what questions to ask. I've had an in-home initial evaluation and I was very pleased and impressed with the trainer and training during that time. I'm looking forward to working with Joe and getting help training my puppy.
After extended research we decided on using Gerard Raneri with Bark Busters Tucson Home Dog Training. He was very quick to call us back and seemed to be able to explain in detail how he could help us, as well as the options he offers. For example, they come to our home and our neighborhood train our dog (and us) They also do not use any choke, pinch or shock collars, no pain dog training. We have had dogs before but this dog was different for some reason we couldn't get a few of his bad behaviors turned around. He (Riley) is a 3 years old mixed breed about 60 lbs. very sweet and we just love this boy! The main issues we needed help with were his pulling on the leash, his jumped on everyone and barked at them. He also would not come when he was called! After our first lesson we saw an immediate improvement! The method and techniques Gerard taught us were easy and our dog caught on quicker then we did! Riley was sitting, staying, coming, and walking to heal all on the first lesson. Of course we had to keep working with him to break his bad habits as well as ours. One of the biggest things I learned was how I was reinforcing the behavior I didn't want. All this time I was sending the wrong message to my dog and Gerard saw that very quickly and showed us how to turn it around. I can say first hand that Gerard was always on time for our lessons and went above our expectation with training. Riley has become a well behaved dog and we have become much better at being his pack leader. Thanks for the Help Gerard,
We did a board and train package with Manners and More and I could not be more pleased with the results. Our little dog Baxter was uncontrollable jumping on us all the time, he had no leash manners at all, would not come when called. We gave him to Nathen and were amazed with the results. Baxter now will stay in a designated space (willingly) when we put him there for as long as we need. He now sits for attention in front of us instead of jumping on us constantly. He has awesome leash manners and he comes to us when called. Baxter went from the worst dog in the house to best trained dog by far. He is a joy to have again. Granted, we had to learn how to command our own dog. We had to learn how to communicate with our dog (included) so the things he learned while away could be duplicated at home. The follow ups were great so that at first if he regressed we were able to address it and get him back on track. Great Trainer! Great Training!
She was on time to the meeting and prepared. Able to answer all of my questions and connected with my dog almost instantly. Lots of progress on the first visit. If I have any dog training questions in the future I'll be using Fido First again.
Joe and Marci were very personable from the very first time we met. I was also impressed with how much they know about dogs! I learned a lot from them at each session and it was actually easy to use their instructions daily to improve our dogs behavior.
She knows her thing! She has long-term goals set up for me, and I am glad to have that arsenal. I would recommend her to anyone needing to do obedience especially. She did not address my specific issue in that I need something NOW as opposed to long-term, although I will implement the long-term goal once we get cooler weather, and when there will be a more likelihood of dogs in the dog park with which to use to help me.
Aixa has been very caring and diligent in her follow-up, and her love of dogs is evident. She has offered make-up classes when I have not been able to make the scheduled classes, and that is going above and beyond! Aixa has provided very sound and helpful training tips; specifically with chewing and destructive habits. I have been very happy with her advice and training.
My love and passion to help others keeps me going. I love having well balanced dogs and I get many compliments. I want other people to feel the same way. The relationship and behavior we cultivate in Our home can show its self out in the real world .
We understand the underlying psychological impulses and drivers that lead to certain behavioral problems, and therefore we specialize in interpreting canine behavior and addressing it from this perspective during the training process. Your dog needs guidance and encouragement in a language that they can understand. We are able to work though any of the many problems that may occur during dog ownership. Not only will we resolve your issues but we will make it a fun and pleasant adventure.
I have a large, beautiful property in NW Tucson where I own three extremely well-behaved dogs, and I welcome other dogs to stay with us for a short while. During that visit, I touch up on the basics with your dog along with social skills, which my dogs are great at.
I provide manner (group/private), agility, and trick classes. I am good in problem solving. I have been training dogs for over 20 years. I will use the best method that works for you and your dogs.
Let your dog become the best well-behaved dog! I have weekly rates. I am willing to work with any breed.
Besides my absolute love of animals, I am a certified dog trainer which encompasses anything from socialization to obedience, and service dog training.

Established in 2008, Desert Dogs has grown from a small, in-home training service to a storefront facility with three professional trainers and kennel staff. Though the company has grown, our main focus has always been on our customers and utilizing the most effective and innovative training techniques. While we continue to expand, we retain our commitment to the community by providing rehabilitation and a foster home for local rescues and their most behaviorally challenged dogs. We participate in many community events and provide a resource for owners to connect with other dog lovers and organizations. We believe that a true canine professional's education is never finished, and furthering our knowledge is imperative. We pride ourselves on becoming proficient in the most effective and progressive techniques of training available. Desert Dogs is licensed and insured for both you and your dog's safety and protection. Even though it is called dog training, it should be called people training for dogs. The most important part of training is how you handle and respond to your dog's behaviors. Dogs and humans don't naturally speak the same language. Training provides an opportunity to open a line of communication that will allow your relationship to become mutually beneficial. By making the training a "way of life", your dog will no longer question when to display appropriate behaviors. The more you practice and implement the training into your everyday life, the faster your dog will learn and the more reliable he will become. Your dog deserves your time and dedication to the training. The more devoted you become, the greater the reward will be.

I have several years of experience with animal behavior, with dog training, with pet sitting, etc. Let me know how I can help.
I am experienced in law enforcement, and my pick of a major in college was of course criminal justice. I love training large dogs who seem aggressive, because I know they can be made into militant partners and obedient friends. Training K-9 dogs taught me to be thankful for my fellow peacekeepers, human and K-9 alike. I am affordable, and I will even train your dog while improving stance mobility and muscle toning. Call or text me for affordable quotes all day!
I provide animal care, including pet sitting, dog walking, and basic training and behavior modification.
