At AZ Dog Sports, we believe a guardian should never give up on a dog for bad behavior, because behavior can be redirected with patience and the right education. We pride ourselves on using APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers) guidelines and are also veterinary approved and endorsed. We value and live by a positive reinforcement philosophy and have a deep-seated love for animals and passion for what we do.
Our dedicated trainers will educate you through a variety of classes on how to:
Solve unwanted behaviors
Have a better connection with your dog
Take your dog to the next level of obedience
Discover a new sport or activity with your dog
Most importantly, after working with us, you’ll be able to take your dog places without being embarrassed.
Aside from our classes in dog obedience, sports, agility and puppy training; we also offer pet-sitting, dog walking and Board & Train services. We even have a dog trainer development program! Our AZ Dog Smart Academy is a comprehensive certification program for becoming a dog trainer.
Whether you need dog training to create better behavior for your dog, or if you want to become a dog trainer yourself; when working with us, you’ll receive the hands-on support and education you need to achieve the goals and success you desire. Our team’s vast knowledge, many years of experience and broad array of specialty training, equips our clients and students with the information they need in order to thrive.
We are centrally located in Paradise Valley/Scottsdale and our spacious, modern, indoor dog facility is air-conditioned.
