Why Choose OUR DOG TRAINERS in Cave Creek?

Why are we the best: Keys to Success

Keys to Success

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.

Set the Bar Higher

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 and Philosophy

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.

Megan Fiedler

Head Trainer

Hello! My name is Megan and I have worked at Partners since 2016. I not only manage the day-to-day operations at the Cave Creek location, I also work with most of our behavior modification cases. Even after all of these years, my favorite moment is still the “Ah-Ha” moment between handler and dog, the moment where communication is clear and we truly understand one another.

Monica Jensen

Boarding & DaySchool Manager

My name is Monica and I’m the Boarding and Daycare Manager at our Cave Creek location! I’ve been with Partners since 2021 and previously worked in other daycare and boarding facilities. I teach our Puppy & Me and Zoomer’s Agility classes, and absolutely love socialization and confidence building! Teaching is second nature for me, and I’m so grateful I have the opportunity each and every day to utilize my skills!

Noa Holt-Shannon

Team Success Manager

Hello! My name is Noa, and I am a Team Success Manager at Partners Cave Creek. I have been passionate about dog training for a long time and started with Partners in 2018. I’ve enjoyed working with puppies, older dogs, and ones with intense behavioral issues. Teaching our team, clients, and dogs have been a massive part of my job. Watching their success has been incredibly rewarding.

Are there any breed/age restrictions?

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.

Why should I choose you?

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!

Is the cost worth it?

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.

When can I get started?

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.

Where does my dog sleep?

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.

Is there someone there overnight?

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.

What should I bring to Check-In?

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.
