At Sublime Canine we know how valuable the relationship between humans and dogs can be. If you met any one of us personally, you would see that dogs are an integral part of our lives. We love spending time with them, hiking, camping or just playing in the back yard. Dogs are our companions and partners. They lift us up when we’re sad, they make us feel safe when we’re alone and they love us unconditionally. This is why we feel a great responsibility to our clients. As dog trainers and dog lovers, we want to ensure that we provide our clients with the tools they need to achieve their training goals and strengthen their relationship with their pets.
Our training method reflects the relationship we have with our dogs. It was forged in science from the theories of “operant" and "classical" conditioning pioneered by B.F. Skinner and Ivan Pavlov. The contributions of the many dog trainers we studied under helped us expand, temper and refine our method. We value positive reinforcement, consistency and fairness. Long gone is the idea that we are the “master” and our dogs must obey us out of fear. Today we are partners, teaching dogs how to coexist in our world. This can be a vexing task because our rules can conflict with a dog's nature. Every dog is different and every person has different goals for their dog so we customize our training program to best suit the needs of each individual client. Using the most up-to-date, science based techniques, we keep training fun, solve or prevent behavior problems and offer our clients opportunities with their dogs that other places can’t.
We offer comprehensive dog training and behavior management services throughout Oro Valley, Tucson, Green Valley, Vail and surrounding areas. We offer Rattlesnake Avoidance workshops throughout Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. We teach dog training seminars in Obedience, Tracking and Schutzhund throughout North America and we offer online dog training courses through Leerburg University.
