Commitment to Excellence
This world class program was created with the needs of pet dog owners in mind but our methods are founded on the training taught to our Military K-9 handlers. The commitment to excellence has been a driving factor in our training program and is one of our biggest core values.

Want the best for your pets, of course, you do so do we! The key to good training is education, consistency, and time. Let us show you why we’re the best. Our unique program starts with a solid educational foundation then moves through all of the basic commands We can even address house-manners like jumping, barking, table surfing, digging, destruction and more.
Already have the basics, wanna do something cool? Try one of our advanced training programs in Family Protection. Protection Dog Training is suitable for all dogs with a high prey drive and even pets. If you don’t know what prey drive is please get a copy of our training manual FIDO or Fundamentals In Dog Obedience. Protection Dog training teaches your dog when to bite and when not to. If your dog already plays tug of war with a rope then you are halfway there. Training does not make your dog mean or any less of a pet.

Our Training Program
Who we are.
Our founder Louis W. Robinson, Veteran K-9 handler and Lead trainer created a dog training program for pet owners from the ground up. Only using the best, most effective techniques. We believe that the best way to teach a dog is to teach the owner to use a blend of both positive and negative reinforcement, creating a well-balanced dog. The dog will still be allowed to be a dog and maintain the desirable parts of his unique personality. Dog training will not make your dog a robot but you will have the best dog possible with our guidance. We do Phoenix dog training right.
Unique Training Programs
Our training program is unique because it utilizes both traditional and modern training techniques. It’s the best of both worlds and our programs are designed around teaching the owner. We never teach anyone to hit or abuse dogs! We love, care, and have respect for our canine companions. Try one of our training programs, and see how quickly behavioral issues disappear!
Our Training Styles
There are basically two sides to dog training, positive only training and avoidance training. Both styles of training are useful but neither one of these styles should be totally relied on. Positive only training consists of voice tone, body positioning, praise and food reward. We have found that only using the techniques from this type of training often produces less than desirable results with the dog only performing if the reward is “good enough”. Avoidance training typically uses training tools like slip collars, choke chains, pinchers and shock collars but not all dogs need those. If an inexperienced or untrained person utilizes these tools incorrectly the end result could be a scared, timid dog, or even aggressive dog and can create a whole new set of issues. Every case is different and there is no one size fits all solution. We teach our students about all of the styles of training, equipment, and training principals in order to determine the best course of action for each unique team. Learn how to train your dog the right way with our professional trainers and learn about all the methods not just one or two.

Custom Dog Training Program
We know great trainers have a thorough understanding of all styles of training and when to use them, and we do not focus on one specific style. This allows us to teach you when to use each style to provide the best results.
Build a strong bond
Educate for the Human.
We believe that the most important part of the process is educating the owner. Once the owner is trained to communicate properly the dog will fall into line . Dogs should have a social structure with humans at the top to prevent confusion, stress, and other more serious behavioral issues. Our easy to understand communication techniques are so simple you will wish you had this understanding sooner. Creating a proper pack structure within your home is essential for your family and dog. We make dog training easy in Phoenix and across the valley!
