Bring your pup in for a FREE training evaluation, and we can help determine which of our training options will be the best for your lifestyle! We offer private one-on-one lessons, daily daycare add-on lessons, as well as all inclusive weekly day training camps and overnight board-and-train packages. All dogs must be current on Rabies, Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella and complete Meet & Greet to participate in any group play-and-train options. Private lessons do not require completion of a Meet & Greet. We do not currently work with any human- or dog-aggression at this time. Give us a call at 480-605-3044 to book your free evaluation today!
Devon Bassett, General Manager, Lead Trainer
Devon has been in the Doggie Daycare and Training business for over 10 years. She got her start in the industry at a local Phoenix daycare, learning the basics of dog body language and managing dogs in a group play setting as a Dog Handler. As she became more familiar with the pups in her care, her interest in dog behavior and training grew. Devon completed an apprenticeship in Las Vegas, Nevada with her mentor, studying dog training techniques and how to best utilize them for a happy, healthy and well-mannered best friend. She also became competent in teaching pet parents how to continue that training at home, to ensure success at any age. Devon would be happy to schedule a free training evaluation at Dogtopia Paradise Valley Village to discuss your training goals!
