  • Does your dog drag you on the other end of the leash?
  • Is your dog a little too helpful while you cook dinner?
  • Is your dog anxious or afraid at the veterinarian office?
  • Does your dog display signs of aggression?
  • Are you at your wits end with puppy problems?

Now imagine your dog...

  • Coming when you call
  • Walking calmly by your side
  • Sitting and lying down politely
  • Having a successful veterinary visit
  • Walking without barking and lunging at passerby

Kim is a great trainer! She uses positive methods of training your pet to be a good citizen, learn tricks, and generally be a great pet. I learned a lot from her puppy kindergarten class, and my puppy has thrived from the added discipline and training in his life. I plan to take more classes here, and would definitely recommend them if you are looking for training for your pet!

Wonderful Trainer! Wonderful experience for us and our reactive puppy. We are learning a lot. My puppy is showing improvement already

— Donna C.

A great approach to training without using shock collars or force training. Our rescue has had two 6 week courses with Kim and she was just amazing!

— Terri G.

Kim Silver is the dog whisperer of Tucson! She has taught me and my dog so much. He is the BEST trained dog I’ve ever had, and I’ve had 3 others.

— Robin S.

Kim Silver has the innate ability to understand dogs’ behavior and because of this she is able to train them with a minimum of effort. It is quite incredible to have her come to your home and in just a few minutes watch her get your dog to do what you despaired of getting him to do…
