We get didn't know your puppy would have a complete meltdown every time you left the house. Or pull you down the street towards another person or dog. Also, no one could have predicted that little Charlie would growl at you over food. And you never thought that you adopted an aggressive puppy who seemed perfectly fine the first few days...Little Stinkers!

  • Even if you have tried another trainer before. 
  • Even if you feel like you have tried everything. 
  • Even if you have tried putting your dog on medication. 
  • Even if you have given up hope. 

INSTEAD, I want you to imagine what life would be like with a dog that listens to you instead of blowing you off 

It IS possible...SERIOUSLY!! 

NEVER FEAR...We're here to tell you we have trained Hundreds of dogs & puppies just like yours and that...

You CAN have an amazing relationship with your dog that you have always wanted. 

There is no other Obedience Training company that I would ever go to than Desert Sage K9 Academy. They handled my dog well. Were never harsh, but firm in what they say. I always thought Firm meant being mean, but what they explained is that it means being Consistent and sticking to the plan.

I think my Brena was a little stubborn but they were right sticking to it really paid off. I love my dog and I am glad I took the classes with Richard and Paula.

There are not enough words to express how much gratitude I have for Richard and Paula for their knowledge and training skills.

I adopted a rescue and after a few months, the real dog came out and it was NOT good. He was out of control and had some aggression issue.

Richard came out, did an evaluation and after just 30min, he had my dog responding like I had never seen in the 3mo I have had him. No more needed to be said, I was sold and 8mo later...I have never regretted the decision.
