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.
First and foremost, WE LOVE DOGS! We want to see your dog succeed just as much as you do. Our team is here to help YOU achieve the goals you’ve set for your dog. 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.
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.
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!
Hello! My name is Hannah and I am the Head Trainer at Partners Shea/101. I consider myself to be “born and raised” at Partners. I began working here in 2017, first as an Animal Care Tech and Snake Avoidance Handler. Throughout the years, I have instructed Puppy and Me, level 1 – 3 group classes, as well as trained thousands of dogs ranging from household puppies to behavior modification cases.
Hello! I’m Caroline, I’m one of our Senior Instructors and Team Success Managers over at our Shea/101 location. I’ve been working professionally with dogs since 2017, starting with daycare and boarding facilities which led me to the path of my true passion of training and behavior modification. My goal is to encourage and provide every dog lover with the knowledge and motivation to give them and their dogs the best possible life together.
Hello, I’m Dakota! I am the Boarding Manager and Instructor at the Partners Shea/101 location. I’ve worked with dogs and horses most of my life, and I have trained well over a thousand dogs since starting with Partners in 2021. My job is my passion and I love providing a stellar experience for our guests while their parents are out of town. My goal is to teach Pet Parents how to have a happy life with their dogs.
Hi there! My name is Nicole and I am the Daycare Manager and Trainer at Partners Shea/101.

I am also an Instructor for Puppy & Me, Level 1 Obedience, and assist in our Canine Good Citizen tests.

There is a minimum age restriction of about six months which allows time to get all of their vaccinations done. However, there is no maximum age restriction because, despite the saying, you can teach an old dog new tricks.
With over 25 years of experience, we have an extensive track record of success. Our trainers receive the best education in the industry. Your questions are answered with kindness and compassion. We consistently push ourselves to exceed your expectations!
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 an investment? Of course! As long as you are a part of the process and maintain the training at home.
Once you have selected your program, our team is happy to schedule your check-in with your instructor. We then collect a non-refundable deposit, verify vaccinations, and invite you to complete your Pet Parent Portal information.
We have raised Kuranda cots in either our luxury suites or standard chain-link enclosures. We have the options of 6x4ft enclosures for large dogs and 4x4ft for smaller dogs. Dogs always have access to clean water and are rotated frequently throughout the day.
Our Scottsdale location does have staff overnight in case of emergency. We don't have staff overnight at our Cave Creek facility, but one of the owners does live on the same property.
Some parents will bring in special diet food or medications for their dogs. Any bedding, toys, etc. can be left at home during boarding and training unless otherwise specified.
