Cane Corso & Shepard Mix by
Joann is awesome and trained my two dogs, Sally and Pavel, perfectly. She was extremely patient with Pavel, a 6 month old Cane Corso, who can be a bit slow and stubborn at times. She knew exactly when to lay off of him when he wasn't "up to the task" and just wanted to lay around. We accomplished all of our goals, including being able to walk both of them without dragging me down the street. I couldn't ask for a better trainer. Well worth the money. I recommend Joann to anyone who asks and will continue to do so. email@example.com
Happier Dogs by
JoAnn has been magic with our dogs. One's older, one is a puppy, and in 5 visits they have both become more obedient, more social, and most importantly, happier than ever! And I don't want to understate the last piece - happier pets! JoAnn's teachings aren't only for the pups, but for the owners, as we have absolutely become better parents and better leaders of the pack. Her advice and education is straight forward yet caring, and she truly takes the time to understand both the dogs and the owners to produce a result that's simply amazing. She's friendly and passionate about ensuring a happy family when she's ready for the final report card. We not only found a dog trainer, but a friend of the family as well. Our pups look forward to her visits as much as we do. You'll notice her immediate and positive impact on your puppies the very first visit. We are so, so thrilled that we found JoAnn and we highly recommend her to any readers, as well as our friends here in the East Valley. JoAnn
Tobi the Doberman by
I cannot say enough great things about our experience with JoAnn of A Canine Academy Intl Dog Training. With out her help we would not have been able to keep our now wonderful dog Tobi. Our previous dog (RIP sweet girl) was nicknamed "Angel Dog" and the new puppy became known as "El Diablo the Devil Dog" so needless to say we were in WAY over our heads. We were not the best puppy owners/self trainers. Add our inexperience to a very headstrong doberman pup and that equals almost having to re-home our puppy because we could not handle her. After much thought and debate we went hired JoAnn. It was either Boot Camp with JoAnn or it was Craigslist for the dog. Not even kidding. We had done everything we knew how to do. We watched videos even before we brought her home, read books, consulted friends ect. JoAnn was our last resort... now we wish we had gone to her FIRST.The human experience with JoAnn was above and beyond our expectations. The communication durring the two weeks was outstan
our 2 male dogs by
I want to express our sincere appreciation for helping us with our dogs. Although we've had dogs our entire life, we've never had male litter mates and really needed help.You were professional, prompt, thorough, and most importantly, adated the sessions to our situation. The only change you may consider is the name of your company. At least based on our experience, the name "Academy for Humans who have Canines" would be more appropriate.Thanks again. Ken & Laurie

JoAnn trained our German Shepherd, Wyatt. Originally, we were just hoping for a well behaved dog that could be trusted around our small children. JoAnn surpassed our expectations and Wyatt became so efficient with his hand signals and training that he is now working as an assistance dog. Great job JoAnn! We continue to be impressed with your training and insight.Bill Davis,Defensive CoordinatorArizona Cardinals

1)Review added by K. Tucker (09-20-2010)We LOVE JoAnn Bluth! She is the “Dog Whisperer” of dog trainers! We learned so much about canines and the way we should be interacting and relating to our family companions. Her first comment to us was that she was going to train us…and that she did. We adopted two puppies from the Arizona Humane Society, they were about 4 months old when JoAnn first came. She said that I was in for a handful, two pups, two kids…well, the pups were so eager to learn that they are just awesome! They took to everything JoAnn taught them and in turn what we continue to teach them to this day. We got so lucky with our pups and finding JoAnn. We have used A Canine Academy now twice and we are completely satisfied. I would recommend JoAnn ten times over…it is the best money we've ever spent on our pups! Thank you again JoAnn! 2)Review added by Cara K (09-07-2010)3)Review added by Nathalie Annau (07-30-2010)4)Review added by Kris Strader (07-26-2010)JoAnn

Joann is a wonderful dog trainer. She was successful training our 6 month old english bulldog puppy. She was professional and loving toward the puppy and our family. I would highly recommend Joann/A Canine Academy Dog training. Money well spent!!

I was looking for a professional dog trainer when I found Jo Ann's website. I emailed her and got a response in a very timely manner. (it took weeks for other people to even email me back) She was professional and always on time for the sessions. I really enjoyed her coming over. My dog's main issue was that he was fearful of people and very timid. He was never agressive which is very odd in a dog that is that scared. He was definetly a tough case and she stuck with us and really helped us get our dog to his stage he is today. Her training costs were reasonable and worth every single penny. I would recommend Jo Ann to anyone with a dog that needs training. Just do what she says and you will see results and you will start to understand how your dog thinks. Also she is very knowledgable about anything else that a dog needs like grooming, toys and food.

JoAnn helped me work through puppy training as I had never owned a puppy before. My husband and I had purchased a 2 month old labradoodle and immediately I realized I was in over my head. My concern was that I also had a toddler at home and wanted to make sure I was able to handle them both. Right off the bat, JoAnn brought over items of great use to my sanity. Being able to use those items temporarily was a life saver. JoAnn took her time with our training as I had a full plate already. She was very flexible and did a great job training ME to train Raven. I would highly recommend the services of her team for any dog training. firstname.lastname@example.org
