Steve is very engaged and knowledgeable about training dogs. He is very friendly and is patient with us and our dog. I would highly recommended Steve if you want a well behaved dog.

Steve is extremely professional working with my dog. He had my pitbull walking on with a loose leash within 15 minutes of starting the training of loose leash walking. His love of dogs is obvious in every way. This guy is outstanding!

Steve has been a great professional to work with throughout the training of our German Shepard. His training techniques have worked great, and has shown over the first 6 weeks of training. The results have been so successful, that we just signed a second contract for his level 2 training course. I would recommend Best of Friends Dog Training to anyone looking for an experienced dog trainer with results that work!

How's this sound? Steve was great! Our dog, Dexter, is so stubborn and too smart for his own good. Dexter is also a very hyper dog, even at 5 years old. Before Steve's help, we couldn't get him to come when we called, sit, lay down, and he had a horrible habit of knocking his dog bowl over sending his food all over the floor every time he'd eat and pick at it for hours until it was gone. I can't tell you what a relief it is to now have a dog who will sit, lay down, come when called, and now eats his food from his bowl within 10 minutes of giving it to him. That's right- no more mess!! My husband and I highly recommend Steve Lewis to help train your dog! We don't even have to crate him when we are at work which makes us all much happier.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I prefer to meet the client, and their dog, in their home for a free consultation before being hired. That gives them, and I, a chance to get to know each other and to work out a program that fit's their specific needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Because of my love of dogs, I decided to continue my education and become a Certified Dog Trainer. I also attend many Training Seminars to keep abreast of the latest techniques and am continually attending 'training workshops' and classes to become more knowledgeable in my field.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I began by volunteering for the Pima County Search and Rescue Dept, and quickly became a K9 handler/trainer for them, in which I apprenticed and learned from some of the best trainers in their field. Training dogs has always been a passion of mine, so I decided years ago to make it my 'life's work'.
