Even when an adult dog has been inadequately or improperly trained, she still has the potential to change and become the dog you always dreamed of having. The cornerstones to achieving this change are positive reinforcement and a meaningful bond between the dog and her owner. If you are looking in Phoenix for dog training services, we would love to meet.
Bringing a new puppy home is an exciting adventure. Puppies are cute and cuddly, and they flip the switch between out-of-this-world energy and falling asleep just about anywhere. At Desert Sky K9, we assess each puppy and tailor their training accordingly. It all comes down to personality, and with nearly 30 years of experience in training dogs, we’ve seen every type of dog.
Training a calm, willing dog can be challenging enough for many people. When the dog has been demonstrating concerning behavior, training becomes even harder. Whether a dog is struggling with dog food aggression, dog aggression, separation anxiety, or something else entirely, Desert Sky K9 is committed to finding the best solution for the owner and the dog.
Desert Sky K9 is experienced in training certified service dogs in Phoenix. Training service dogs takes an immense amount of expertise and patience. After all, a person with a service dog relies heavily on the dog to be help them navigate the world safely. That means that the service dog needs to be totally focused on the owner and the surroundings, tuning out distractions and capable of performing specific tasks. That’s a lot of responsibility!
The key difference between a guard dog and a protection dog is that a guard dog protects your things, like your house. A protection dog, on the other hand, is trained to protect you and your family. A key element of training a dog for protection is making sure that the dog has the appropriate temperament for the work. Because not all dogs can do protection work, testing must be done to confirm whether your dog has what it takes.
