About Us

Based out of Fredericksburg, Texas, FAZ Dog Training is here to help Gillespie County and the surrounding area learn that training your dog doesn't have to be a hassle but a strong, bonding, experience for both parties. We offer private classes and board & trains for your convenience. We focus on improving the relationship between the pet and the owner by using the simplest form of training: motivation. A dog should receive an appropriate response to their actions and using motivation can help enforce the good behaviors and stopping negative ones. Since each dog is different with how to motivate them, we work each case personally to find the most effective training tools and techniques. And while getting your dog to be more obedience is important, we want to make sure you, as a handler, feel comfortable and knowledgeable with every tool we use with your dog.


FAZ Dog Training also works hand-in-hand with Finnick's Rescue World to help find the perfect companion to add to peoples' lives. Finnick's Rescue World works with high-kill shelters on finding homes for amazing animals, both big and small. There are thousands of animals waiting for the perfect home in shelters that would be perfect for your life and we are proud to help offer the service of finding them that home.
