Here are just a few reasons to consider using Tip Top K9 for all of your dog training needs.

  1. We Have Experience With Many Breeds

In fact, we have extensive experience training more than 130 breeds, including mixed breeds. Why is this important? Each breed tends to have a distinct personality and temperament and understanding how each breed tends to think allows us to truly personalize training sessions.


For instance, training sessions with a border collie might look quite different from training sessions with a bulldog. Border collies are known for their remarkable intelligence and high energy and these work-oriented dogs thrive on mental and physical stimulation, so they tend to enjoy rigorous training sessions.


On the flip side, bulldogs tend to be calm and patient dogs with much less energy. They also aren’t typically as quick to learn or as eager to please, so with this type of dog, we’d use shorter, consistent training sessions to accommodate this breed’s lower energy level and incorporate a huge dose of patience for these sometimes stubborn (yet adorable) dogs. Positive reinforcement training can be a great option for these types of dogs.


  1. Our Lessons Are Tailored To Your Dog

While we have experiences with many breeds, every dog is unique and while these breed personality generalizations often ring true, your trainer will look beyond breed and delve into your dog’s singular personality.


Your dog’s personality and temperament might be typical of the breed, or your dog might have experienced some previous trauma that has altered their personality. Rescue dogs often have behavioral issues, but typically with time and patience and praise, any dog can be trained to display proper behavior as well as reduce aggression and anxiety.


You might have noticed that we don’t include any pricing models on our website and that’s because there’s no one-price-fits-all approach to dog training. Some dogs simply require more training and more intensive training, so the price you pay for lessons will depend upon your dog’s personality and behavioral issues. A dog with a cheerful temperament and little-to-no aggression will simply be easier to train than a dog with more severe issues.


  1. Our Training Lasts A Lifetime

Once your dog has either completed their in-home training or board and train boot camp, we don’t simply say goodbye and end our relationship. With Tip Top K9 our training truly lasts throughout your dog’s lifetime. Not only do we provide lifetime phone support, but lifetime group classes are included in almost all of our dog training packages.


  1. Your First Lesson Is Just $1

The first lesson is not just a lesson, it’s an in-depth look at your dog and how he or she behaves. The first step is to talk with you as the dog parent and discuss your goals and what level of obedience is needed for your situation.


The second step is to meet your dog and work with the dog for about 10 to 15 minutes to get a sense of your dog’s personality and behavioral issues. Lastly, we will create a plan for training. In some cases, we might simply provide you with some advice and a game plan for your next steps, but if you choose to use Tip Top K9 for your training, we will develop an individualized training program based on your needs.


Types Of Classes We Offer

At Tip Top K9, we offer several types of dog training classes in Gilbert. For instance, if you want an in-home dog trainer in Gilbert, this is one option. We also offer dog boot camp in Gilbert and group dog classes. Let’s take a quick look at what types of training programs we can provide.


In-Home Dog Training

In-home training is a popular option and a good fit for many dogs. During your first lesson, which is just $1, an expert dog trainer will spend about 30 minutes getting to know you and your dog. We will assess the dog’s behavior and abilities and create a personalized training plan just for your dog.


Dog Boot Camp

If you have a dog that showcases aggressive behavior, our doggy boot camp in Gilbert can be your best option. This is a board-and-train method where your dog stays for two to four weeks with one of our certified trainers.


This is the best option for hard cases, and we guarantee the results, no matter how long it takes! If you have a severely anxious or highly aggressive animal, boot camp can drastically improve behavior and transform your dog into a lovable, obedient and happy companion.


Group Dog Training

Group dog training classes are another option, and these are a great option to consider after your dog has completed their in-home private lessons or completed our boot camp. Group classes aren’t meant to be the first step, they are reinforcement of what already has been taught. Practice makes perfect, and both you and your dog will be able to iron out any training kinks during these group classes, which also provide a great opportunity for socialization for your sweet pooch.


Puppy Training

We also offer puppy training, and this typically is encouraged once your puppy is about three to four months old. However, some dogs will need to wait until they are about five to six months old, simply because they are a bit more mature and will be easier to train.


Potty Training

Potty training is another service that we can incorporate into training, and this is not just for puppies. Rescue dogs often struggle with potty training, and we can help you teach them a proper routine. Potty training can be incorporated into our puppy training, in-home dog training and dog boot camp.


This can involve crate training, but our approach does not simply rely on the crate. Still, the crate can be a safe haven for your dog and is not only handy for potty training but also to keep your dog safe and secure when you are not at home.


What We Can Teach

The end goal is to provide you with a well-behaved dog that you can take anywhere. For instance, we teach basic obedience skills such as teaching a dog to sit, stay, and lay down. We also teach them to obey the command “come” 100% of the time.


Additionally, we can eliminate tiresome and unwelcome dog behavior such as jumping and leash pulling. Training also can be used to stop nuisance barking and to ease the anxiety and fear that often lead to excessive barking and other unwanted behaviors. Most importantly, if you need aggressive dog behavior training in Gilbert, our experts can help.
