Why are we the best: Keys to Success

Keys to Success

Don’t know what to do next? We do. Whatever your problem, we know what it takes to solve it. It works in three parts. First, we assess your goals for your dog and design a plan to reach them. Second, we establish a relationship, build strong foundational obedience and correct any unwanted behaviors. Lastly, we teach you to build on that foundation, instill accountability into your dog's life, and maintain those positive behaviors long into the future.

We will do whatever it takes to meet those expectations. When you work with us, you won’t find someone looking to take your money and run. Your success is our success, so let’s succeed, as Partners.

Why are we the best: Our Mission and Philosophy

Our Mission and Philosophy

Our mission is to give you and your dog an extraordinary education and a life-long, delightful relationship with your dog. We are what’s known as balanced trainers. Meaning we lean heavily to reward based training, but we also believe in telling a dog “No!” Our staff attend conferences and constantly refine their ongoing education as they strive to improve techniques and training methods. We strive to take our extensive knowledge base and pass that experience onto you and your dog.

We are Here for You

At Partners Dog Training, we are with you every step of the way. Too many trainers “fix” your dog and take off. At Partners, we are devoted to communicating, educating and following up. With comprehensive online lessons, one-on-one private lessons, and Pet Parenting Classes. Our training system is designed to help you and your dog find success!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any Age/Breed Restrictions?
There is a minimum age requirement of 20 weeks which allows time to develop immune systems. There is no maximum age and we accommodate all dogs, sizes, breeds, and temperaments!
How do you handle special diets or medications?
You are welcome to bring your own food and feeding instructions for your dog. We do ask that you bring more food than they may need in case it’s needed. Any medications must come in the original bottle/packaging and include an exact count of any pills/dosages included. If your dog has organ-function or life-saving medication, please speak to one of our team members for further information.
What does my dog's day look like?
At Partners Dog School, we make sure to give your pup the best possible day. We start off with Potty Time to get them out and going in the morning, then we move onto Meal Time, where they can really fuel up and prepare for the day ahead. In between meals, it’s time for Passive Training, which helps build good behavior through modeling and immersion. Then we switch things up with Outdoor/Indoor Rotations to keep the learning environment active and engaging. Finally, if you choose to add on extracurriculars like One-On-One Training, DaySchool, Treadmill workouts, and extra baths, we have plenty of options available. After a day filled with plenty of learning and fun, it’s time for bed – the perfect way to end any day right! We make sure your pup is nice and comfy, cozying up in their bed as they drift off into sweet dreams. It’s all designed to keep your pup happy and healthy while they learn skills that will last a lifetime!
What vaccinations are required?
Due to the large number of dogs we work with each year, we maintain the strictest cleaning, sanitation, and vaccination protocols of any pet care facility. We require Bordetella, Rabies, and Distemper/Parvo vaccination for ALL dogs that enter any of our facilities. We can verify this directly with your vet, records can be uploaded into your Pet Parent Portal, or you’re welcome to email them to us. All vaccinations must be given at least 1 week prior to coming to one of our facilities. Dogs recently rescued must be at home for at least 30 days prior to coming to one of our facilities. Dogs showing any infectious symptoms must remain at home and be clear of symptoms for at least a week prior to returning to one of our facilities. For any further questions please see our Staying Healthy Agreement in your Pet Parent Portal or contact one of our Guest Support Team Members.
Is someone there overnight?
Our Scottsdale location does have staff overnight in case of emergency. They are there to passively look over the dogs without disturbing their sleep. We don’t have staff overnight at our Cave Creek facility, but one of the owners does live on the same property.
Is the cost worth it?
In the same way, one would send their child to school, where professional educators are entrusted with their care, dog owners enroll their pups in school, where professional trainers achieve the best results. Is it worth it? Of course! As long as you are a part of the process as well.
