Thanks for visiting Nate Dog Training. I am a certified dog behavioral expert in Phoenix, AZ with a thorough understanding of dog psychology, and it is my passion to help owners and dogs live happier lives together. I train rescue dogs, adult dogs, and puppies.
My training is designed to help dog owners have a deeper understanding of their dog’s needs. Through my training, owners will receive an understanding of proper leash training, reliable recall, advanced stay command, social skills, manners, and more. I use positive reinforcement to resolve, modify, and prevent behavior problems in dogs.
I am a dog trainer who works with dogs of all ages from puppy to adult, all breeds and temperaments, and dogs with behavioral issues such as aggression, leash reactivity, leash pulling, fear, anxiety, over excitement, barking, not listening, and more. My training programs are not one-size fits all - I customize each program for the individual dog owner and the specific issues they are having with their dog. Included in my programs is dog obedience training for those clients that are looking to have their dogs learn specific skills. I also offer private group classes, giving each participant individualized attention.
In addition, I work with rescue groups to train and socialize their more challenged dogs so they may be placed in their forever homes.
I have 20 years of field experience and have worked with over 4,000 dogs. I am highly reviewed on Google and have the most 5 star rated reviews in Phoenix.
I am a dog trainer who believes that good training starts in the home. Using my skills as a dog behavioral expert, I will identify and help resolve any behavioral problems in your home setting and include dog obedience training. The sessions are conducted privately in your Phoenix home, and each session will be between 60 and 75 minutes. Some of the sessions may be in public settings, if needed. With my help, you can have a relaxed, socialized, and properly trained dog in just a few sessions.
Through my 15 years of field experience, I understand that dog obedience training does not always resolve negative behaviors in dogs. My training as a behavioral expert allows me to identify and resolve issues such as aggression, leash reactivity, leash pulling, fear, anxiety, over excitement, barking, not listening, and more. I am more than an average dog trainer; I am a problem solver who delivers resolution to your frustration.
The bulk of the 4,000+ dogs I have trained have been rescue dogs. I can proudly declare that I have helped each and every one of them live happier lives, regardless of their history. This is because with over 15 years of field experience, I understand the special needs of rescue dogs and how to make them balanced again. Rescue dogs are going to need more than dog obedience training – they will need a dog behavioral expert.

This program is designed to get puppies and owners off to a great start. I am a certified dog trainer and behavioral expert in Phoenix, AZ who is authorized to teach the AKC S.T.A.R. PUPPY PROGRAM.
S.T.A.R. stands for
– Responsible ownership
As a behavioral expert, it is important that I teach my clients how to socialize their dogs. One of my unique offerings is my small group classes. Unlike most other group classes, my classes are small by design so that I may give individual attention to each participant. Beyond dog obedience training, my group classes are designed to teach dogs to have good manners in public. Group classes are for private clients only in Phoenix, AZ.
