Dog Trainer Phoenix - Testimonials
www.dogtrainerphoenix.com, 16 Sept 2013 [cached]
We would like to recommend JoAnn Bluth as a professional dog Trainer due to our past experiences with her, she impressed us from the beginning, before we had even chosen her as our puppy's trainer. Khaifa, our puppy, changed dramatically from our first training session and continues to improve daily. Even after the training was completed, she made it clear that we could still ask her questions anytime we needed,
We have a rare and unique breed of dog and wanted to make sure we got proper training for her. Khafia is a breed of sighthound, called a Sloughi~ and the breeder informed us that she would be difficult to train, it was very important to us that we found an excellent trainer. We came across Joanne through the Internet. I briefly spoke to her about our sloughi puppy wondering if she had trained either these, or similar sighthound breeds. Before we had made the final decision to have her train our puppy, she took it upon herself to research what a Sloughi was like, and called us to tell us the information that she had found and where we could find it for our further understanding of the breed. Knowing that there was no pressure to continue onto the entire program, if after the first session we were unpleased, we had her come for the first visit.
Khafia changed dramatically from the first day. She had started doing things that the breeder told us not to expect she would ever do. JoAnn made sure that she trained us as well as our dog. She understands that the dog cannot do it alone and each owner must be committed to help the dog learn. This means changing certain things inside and outside your home as well as teaching the owner how to train a dog. JoAnn is also very conscious of what concerns the owner has regarding these changes. She suggests the BEST way to train and the program can be modified from there. After all, it is your dog and home. You will get as much progress as the work you put in. By the end, we had Khafia, what we thought was a nearly untrainable dog, readily healing, staying, and jumping hurdles. Needless to say it was worth every penny.
Of course, our puppy is just that, still a puppy. There have been times since the last session that we have had questions and problems- JoAnn has always been happy to answer any questions we may have, it has been very nice knowing that we have a professional and knowledgeable person that will always be there for us when we need her.
We wholeheartedly recommend Joanne Bluth as a trainer for anyone's four legged loved ones. She has been a great teacher for our puppy and for us. We can honestly say it was a great pleasure to have her in our home and our puppy's life. Thank you JoAnn.

Our training experience with JoAnn was delightful. JoAnn is a pleasure to work with and a very experienced trainer. I could tell from the first day she already had con troll of Prince. She went out of her way to make sure that the job was done right and make any accommodations for schedule changes, etc.
Dog Trainer Phoenix - Reviews
www.dogtrainerphoenix.com, 3 Jan 2013 [cached]
Our Labradoodle puppy (Abby) was five months old with a mind and schedule of her own - that did not fit our routine - when we called Joanne for help and decided to do the doggy-bootcamp at her house. Joanne transformed our out-of-control and highly energetic puppy into an enjoyable, wonderful puppy that has calmed down tremendously, listens, obeys commands, and sleeps in her crate all night. We could not believe the change in such a short time! During the 14-day doggy-bootcamp Joanne kept us updated with daily - very detailed - notes on Abby's progress. Joanne is an amazing dog trainer and excellent in teaching the owners as well. Her help and suggestions are invaluable to us. Abby is now 6 months old and - although still a nosy puppy - is much calmer and an absolute joy. Joann is the best in our book and we highly recommend her to everyone!!! THANK YOU JOANN! m_fleis@yahoo.com

JoAnn was amazing! She helped us crate train our 10 year old Chihuahua, Minyi. Minyi used to refuse to take walks and now she heels! JoAnn trained Minyi at just the right pace and always ensured that Minyi was happy. JoAnn knew exactly what to do and was never wrong about Minyi's capability of being trained. She gave us the tools and advice that we are so grateful for. JoAnn is a fantastic trainer and we highly recommend her. You will definitely see results!

I would 100% recommend JoAnn for any dog training. She is very knowledgeable about training dogs. I had an out of control boston terrier that ruled the house and I was in desperate need of help. I sent my crazy dog off to bootcamp with JoAnn and when he finally came home he was an obedient, clam dog. I couldn't believe the change in my dog, and neither could my friends and family! He now sits on command, doesn't jump on people or furniture, and doesn't chew on my belongings. JoAnn not only trained my dog but also trained me on how to keep the training up at home. I don't know how she did it but somehow she tamed my beastly dog! shanelb_0802@yahoo.com

I found Joann after reviewing several different trainers and courses available online. After talking to Joann she immediately gave me several tips and steps my family and I could take to help us with our puppy. We got our puppy from a rescue shelter and she turned out to be a mixed breed which required a lot of training and love. Needless to say we were at our wits end with the dogs constant nipping. We even had discussions of returning the puppy because of our youngest child being less than two. Within the first visit we were able to get a handle on the nipping and other issues. Our oldest child had never been around dogs before began helping out with the training of the dog. Joann has a wealth of information and is able to handle dogs with a gentle hand which we really appreciated. She is worth every penny you'll spend and won't regret if you have any dog issues.

I would highly recommend JoAnn Bluth if you need help training your dog. She has so much knowledge and experience training dogs who have some difficult issues. My young Maltese would bark excessively at times, pull me during our walks, and not listen to my commands. JoAnn, in the last few months, has taught me how to take control, provide more boundaries, and make training enjoyable for me and my dog. My dog now really wants to please and follow my command. My household is so much more calm. My dog also seems a lot more secure and calm now that he knows my expectations. JoAnn's training demonstrations, instructions, and tips have been really helpful. It has been truly worth the time and effort.

Joann Bluth is our wonderful trainer who has been helping us train our 7 month old Rottweiler Ruby Sue since she was about 12weeks old. She is very patient with our dog and with us! We have learned so much from her and she has given us many skills to work with Ruby on our own. I feel very confident with her training and I know that our dog will be very well trained with her help. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a great dog trainer. Thanks Joann!!

Joann was just great-- exactly what we needed. More than anything else, she taught us how to better relate to our dog. How to communicate in a way she understands.

Joann knows her stuff. She was very impressive with the knowledge she brought and the training she gave to my goldendoodle. I will highly recommend her to my family and friends in the future.

We wholeheartedly recommend A Canine Academy and Joann Bluth. Her training methods go far beyond anything you will find at a Petsmart or Petco. As well as teaching necessary commands, she teaches the owners how to improve their own skills to make happier dogs. Joann came to our home to help us with our two 2-year-old mixed breed pit bulls. Our girl, Phoenix, was so joyful and exhuberant (and uncontrolled) that we couldn't have her around our grandsons. She needed to learn how to calm herself, and we needed to learn how to help her with that. Joann showed us how our demeanor, even our posture, affected our dogs' behavior. Over the course of her training, she took us and our dogs through several commands, and showed us how to interact with our dogs to get the calmness and behavior we wanted. She has a great sense of humor, and she encouraged us all along by telling us that we had really good dogs, something we knew but needed to hear from an expert. As a result of her work with us, we can have both dogs in our house in the company of our two young grandsons. Phoenix is still a joyful and exuberant puppy, but we now know how to behave to help her calm down. We really enjoy having the dogs with us in our home. That first e-mail I sent to Joann was the best thing I could ever have done for our dogs and for ourselves.

Joann totally rocks! We had two puppies who were out of control - chewing, digging under the fence to escape, jumping, howling, peeing in the house....basically running their own pack and ignoring us. We did a combination of doggy boot-camp at Joann's house and in-home training and were given so many skills from Joann that I feel confident in our ability to have well-behaved dogs now and in the future. Joann did not use any abusive training techniques, nor bribed them constantly with food (although we do use treats for some of the lessons). Our dogs are well-adjusted and happy and nearly problem free (well, they are still puppies so they get into trouble now and then, but 90% of our their issues are solved). I highly recommend Joann and would use her again in a heartbeat! domba@cox.net

Joann has significant patience and a no quit attitude. Thanks Joann!

JoAnn helped me with my 5yr old and 2yr old Cairn Terriers. I had done the PetSmart group classes, and my dogs learned to only listen to me if I was feeding them. JoAnn trained me how to be a better pack leader and my dogs responded quickly and wonderfully. My dogs are both intelligent so I figured they would pick up the lessons well, but I was affraid that in teach them to behave better they would lose some of there personality...not the case at all! So many of the adorable little quarks that make them unique have actually come to the forefront since they are worried about having to be pack leader, and they can just be adorable dogs. It's been about two months since JoAnn and I finished our last session together and the dogs are still behaving great!
...
It was amazing to watch how Boston responded to JoAnn. The challenge is continuing to reinforce what JoAnn has taught us both.
When I called JoAnn to let her know that I had adopted Cali a female black lab puppy, she also took the time to work with me in training the puppy.
Thank you JoAnn. You're the best!

My husband and I contacted JoAnn after months of struggle with our 1.5 year old shepherd mix, Lily. Our dog had some major anxiety issues, especially when a new person is present in the house. She wou

JoAnn Bluth, a dog trainer ...

JoAnn Bluth, a dog trainer for 12 years and co-owner of A Canine Academy in Chandler, said chows have a predisposition toward dominance and aggression if not trained and socialized at a young age.
"A chow can have a very pronounced prey drive," said Bluth, who often works with aggressive adult dogs.
She said she is not surprised a chow was involved rather than a golden retriever, a breed that has a high drive to please and is not as independent and willful as a chow and has no pronounced prey drive.
She said any dog can still be aggressive, however.
