"If you would understand this secret, you must first understand the distinction between training an animal and educating one. Trained animals are relatively easy to turn out. All that is required is a book of instructions, a certain amount of bluff and bluster, something to use for threatening and punishment purposes, and of course the animal. Educating an animal, on the other hand, demands keen intelligence, integrity, imagination, and the gentle touch, mentally, vocally, and physically."
J. Allen Boone, Kinship with All Life (New York; Harper and Row, 1954), p. 4
East Valley K9 Services strives to educate owner about all things dog. How they think, learn and what their perception of the world looks like. This educational aspect to training is so important to creating a harmonious home life with your dog and owners become strong confident handlers.
We understand the unique needs and goals of each client and their dog because every family is different and all dogs have their own personalities. Training and puppy socialization should be a fun and rewarding experience for both the human and the pup!
Our mission is to create forever relationships! The relationship you have with your dog & the relationship you have with us.
We use a healthy balance of positive reinforcement and play based learning combined with appropriate correction. We also help clients with dogs that have already developed negative behavior such as aggression, lunging and pulling on leash, and resource guarding.
We are so excited to to offer dog services, including boarding, to ensure that your lives together are happy, healthy and rewarding!
We are proud to offer our services in Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler and the entire East Valley.
"My puppy Mucca and I completed the puppy socialization class and loved it! We overcame many obstacles and I learned a lot from Brandy that will help me continue to train this pup as she grows. Thank you!"
"Me and my fur friend Boone loved learning the basics especially with Brandy! She loves what she does and you can tell by how she makes every part of the basics class so much fun! Thank you so much!"
"Brandy is amazing with our fur babies! She treats them with so much love and I would not trust anyone else with my dogs. I recommend her to everyone I speak to about dog services!"
I am the proud owner of 7 special needs dogs. But Sherry was a special case she had been rescued from death row 6 times I had used other trainers to help with her aggression to no avail. I finally found Steve Mark who with only two sessions Sherry was no longer attacking my other dogs. I have referred Steve Mark to other people who have also been very satisfied. Everyone says their dogs are crazy about him I think he wears dog treat cologne I am very Pleased and would use and recommend Steve Mark again.
