The dog-training world is full of misconceptions, old wives tales, and bad advice. Over recent years there have been many studies and much work dedicated to canine behavior and development. As with children, you wouldn’t wait until they are a teenager to work with them on their behavior or choices, why do that with your puppy? Don’t wait for problems to develop! Our Puppy Training Program gets you off to the right start! Our Basic Obedience Dog Training and Behavior Problem Programs promise you a well mannered companion dog and “harmony in the house”. Call us today for Puppy Training! Understanding these stages of the dog’s mental and psychological growth, and starting a well conceived and proven training program early in your dog’s life, will save you considerable time, money and headaches later.

A psychology major and an executive in the travel industry, JoAnn left the corporate world in favor of the world of dogs and training. Once a member of the Maryland Ballet Company, JoAnn enjoys the “people teaching” aspect of working with families and their canine friends. Even more than that, there’s the satisfaction of keeping dogs that were once “problem children” happily fitting back into their human families home!

She specializes in Gilbert, and the surrounding East Valley.
One definition of wisdom is to know what you know, and be aware of what you don’t know. Our area of expertise is canine behavior modification, dog psychology, and training. We take our years of experience, knowledge and training and offer you the best in managing your dog and their behavior. When looking for a trainer, know what to look for, what questions to ask, and also what methods do they use. A “free in-home evaluation” could be a sales tactic to get in the door. Don’t be afraid to ask about references, challenging clients, or education and credentials. When trusting someone with your faithful pet, make sure they are as invested in success as you are!
