TRAINING the TRAINER

This is a one-on-one, private session with you, your dog and instructor Steff Smith of SW German Shepherd Rescue. Can be during the week or weekends as schedules permit. It is geared to address handler-related problems with dominant or fear aggressive dogs, as well as other behavioral issues to which inexperienced handlers unknowingly contribute. This is an excellent foundation from which to follow up with a recommended group obedience class where newly learned skills can be immediately applied.

Held at a public park in North or NW Phoenix for a nominal fee by appointment on a time available basis.

We regret that we are not able to provide training via lengthy emails; please submit your dog's profile then give us a call: 602-866-2880.
