"best trainer in the Las Vegas area"

 “Thank you so much for your training for Michael McGee my Pug companion.  He has gone from a perfect pet to a close to perfect Service Dog.  Just a few more commands until his certification.  I searched High and Low to find a trainer qualified to train a Service Dog.  Ira Smith has trained Michael and also this human (yes, owners also get trained to the correct way to work the dog and acquire the skills necessary) I am proud to take Michael everywhere I go.  His behavior is awesome and Ira has capitalized on Michael's willingness to please in a profound way.  If you are looking for a  fabulous and certified trainer look no further.  You found him.”

*DISCLAIMER: The quality of The K-9 Handler® remains consistently high and is guaranteed, however, dog training will not always provide exact results. Each dog is different in regards to temperament, ability, background, intelligence and owner handling. The K-9 Handler® makes no expressed or implied guarantee to the level of competency reached by your dog. It is the handler/owner’s responsibility to continue lifelong training with his/her dog to reach the highest proficiency attainable. Please note that obedience training will not alleviate, solve or address any neurotic, psychological, or mental problems - just like with humans.
