Dog training is unregulated in the United States. This means absolutely anyone can hang up a shingle and charge for their services. Diamond Dogs was born out of principled opposition to the barbaric, inhumane practices perpetuated as training. To illustrate why it is so important to thoroughly vet any trainer you choose to work with, please take a moment to watch this short video:

best Portland dog trainer

My biggest concern when searching for pet care is whether or not I can trust them to care for my furry family member. Rarely do I feel they will care as much as I do. Most often I rely on reviews to make sure a pet has not been mistreated. That is not the case with Diamond Dogs! This business cares about your pet. The owner puts her heart into this business because she loves pets as much as you do. You can trust that when your pup is with Diamond Dogs, they are in the best hands possible!
