dog trainer, quality k9, tino reinke, dog training phoenixWelcome to Quality K-9, where passion for dogs meets unparalleled expertise in dog training. Nestled near the idyllic Prescott Valley in Arizona, our facility stretches over 3.5 lush acres, providing ample space for dogs to learn, play, and thrive. Prescott’s charm doesn’t just lie in its breathtaking landscapes; it’s a haven for dog lovers. With its dog-friendly ethos, you can bring your canine companions almost anywhere, making socialization a breeze. Plus, our temperate weather ensures training sessions are comfortable year-round, a stark contrast to the sweltering heat of Phoenix.

At the helm of Quality K-9 is Tino Reinke, our esteemed owner and head trainer. Tino isn’t just any trainer; he’s a luminary in the field with over 30 years of rich experience shaping both canines and their human counterparts. His background is as impressive as it is diverse, with a solid foundation in military and police dog training that underscores his profound understanding of discipline, loyalty, and the profound bond between dogs and their handlers.

Tino’s journey in the dog training realm has taken him across the globe, where he’s honed his skills alongside some of the world’s most renowned trainers. This international exposure has not only enriched his training methodologies but has also imbued him with a unique perspective that he brings to every training session at Quality K-9.

In an industry where many claim to have trained thousands of dogs, Tino stands apart. His claim is not just credible; it’s backed by a trail of successful transformations and rehabilitations of canines, spanning various disciplines. From pet dog training that fosters a harmonious living with your furry friend, to specialized training in personal protection and sport dog training, Tino’s expertise is all-encompassing.

Joining Tino in leading Quality K-9 is Angelika Clark, our dedicated General Manager and an experienced dog trainer in her own right. With over 30 years of experience, Angelika brings a wealth of knowledge to our team, especially in high-level competition dog training. As an AKC-CGC Evaluator, her standards of excellence are unparalleled. Born and raised in Germany, Angelika’s training philosophy has been shaped by the world-class dog trainers she’s worked and learned from across the globe. Her approach to dog training, particularly in obedience, is heavily influenced by motivational methods, ensuring that training is not only effective but also a positive experience for both dog and handler.

Why should you train your dog?

Learning proper dog training skills significantly improves the relationship between you and your dog. You will benefit from becoming a better handler and your dog will succeed with proper motivational training.

A little dog training theory...

What you and your dog experience in life, will stay with you forever. Good or bad. As humans we are much more forgiving when it comes to bad experiences in life. For dogs this is not so simple. Behavioral science teaches us that dogs revert to the first experience made, the first learned behavior. This is why early training is essential. But all is not lost if you start late…it just requires a bit more patience. Sometimes it’s the journey that makes the best relationships!

Quality K-9 Testimonials

I have had the pleasure of working with Tino for the last 8 months. During this time period, Jakob, my German Shepherd and I have made remarkable gains in our training. I attribute these gains to Tino’s natural ability to read canines and his clear direct approach with both canine and handler.
Tino has a natural ability to predict behaviors and create training methods that deliver results quickly and effectively. It is one of his many attributes that set him apart from other trainers. Results can be seen in the very first session, and confidence ignites in all involved.
The clear and understandable direction he provides to both canine and handler, reduces the common stresses created by trial and error type methods. This clear direction, allows progress to come quickly, efficiently and with minimal stress on your pet.
Tino is genuine in his interest to help your pet, and teach you methods and skills that can lead to a life time of enjoyable pet ownership. He truly is a master trainer.
