Effective Compassionate Dog Training
Dogs make amazing companions! They become even better companions when they are professionally trained.
But why is this?
Simple, professionally trained dogs behave incredibly well. When your dog behaves well, you don’t have to put restrictions on your pet. This gives your dog a lot of freedom which results in a very happy pooch. Happy, well behaved dogs tend to be extremely loyal and a joy to live with.
The quickest most effective method of training is our compassionate Boarding & Training program. We DO NOT put your dog in a kennel! Instead, we integrate your dog into one of our trainers’ home for a short amount of time.
We care for every single dog we train as if they were our dog and a member of our own family. Abusive animal correction methods just do not work; so we only use compassionate methods that require patience and care.
Your dog will have every need attended to and will be treated with love while they’re undergoing a highly customized training program.
Every dog has his or her own unique personality and specific needs when it comes to behavior modification. This is why we customize a unique curriculum for each dog we train. We would love to speak with you and customize a program just for your dog as well!

We understand the anxiety of having your pet gone for a while, and also the anxiety your best friend must feel as well. This is why we make sure to give all dogs we train plenty of attention, play, and exercise to keep them happy and content.
We will even have your pooch play with other dogs we are working with to help them develop strong social interaction skills.
You can be rest assured that your dog’s training will be thorough and complete. If the time it takes to complete the curriculum goes longer than our original estimate, you don’t pay anything extra. We will work with your dog until the training is complete.
It’s always exciting when training is a success and our furry friends get to go home. However, it doesn’t end there because It’s our mission to make sure all dogs we train stay well trained.
To ensure dog owners get the most value possible, we offer a free private handler session upon completion of the training as well as a series of follow up group training sessions. Once your dog is trained, you need to know how to maintain that training, and we will show you how.
This will prevent old habits from coming back and eliminate the need to ever have to utter the old proverbial phrase “Bad Dog!” ever again.
We Have Happy Clients!
Dear Angelika and Tino,
Ivory, our beloved Lab puppy girl, was very active and almost impossible to control and as much as we loved her we have struggled for several tough months until we got to a point where we knew that the only way to keep her is to have her professionally trained.
After trying a few group training sessions and some homemade “methods” it was clear that it will not suffice. Ivy is smart and knew all the commands but she had her own agenda when it was time to comply (-;
We did our homework for a while because we wanted the absolut best for Ivory and narrowed the options to the Boarding Training method and this is when your name came up as highly regarded. With a heavy heart we left our little baby in your hands and went home counting the days… and when it was finally time to have her back we had our high expectations but we were not even remoptely ready for the big surprise that was waiting for us.
Not only that Ivy came back home 100% off leash trained, she is now so calm and happy and her social interaction with everybody is just amazing. Our bond is much stronger.
We feel that she kept her wonderful charm, sweetness and character but left the naughty stuff behind her. It is a dream come true and nothing short of a miracle!
We don’t know how you do this but whatever you do, it is working tremendously well. We will surely use your services for any future dogs we might adopt and highly recommend you to anybody who wishes to share better life with their beloved dog.
The Yaron family.
Dear Angelika and Tino:
When I decided to welcome a new, exuberant puppy into my life, I slowly came to the realization that I no longer had the matching level of energy needed to train my little Punkin. Although he has an outstanding temperament, stable in the situations we encounter, loving humans and dogs alike, I needed help with his training so that he could become a great member of my family and a therapy dog where I volunteer. Admittedly, I was hesitant to send him for training because he did not have behavioral problems nor was he a large or dominate dog for which Angelika and Tino are clearly world class trainers. I was simply not up to the task of training my little puppy and needed help.
When I interviewed Angelika and Tino, I knew I had come to the right place for Punkin’s on and off leash training because of their calm manner and outstanding reputation as professional dog trainers. The day I dropped him off I felt like my load of responsibility was being shared. Over the course of his month-long training, Angelika kept me appraised of his progress and when she sent me a video of him in a group class where his attention stayed focused on her and his tail kept wagging, I was duly impressed. The foundation of his training was being laid down and I was sure I could continue when he came home.
It has now been about three months since we have been making the 200-mile round trip on many Sunday’s to continue working with Angelika and Tino. Each time we enter the training center it feels like a homecoming and we are richer for that experience. I’ve also met others training there and glean important training tips on ways to improve behaviors as Angelika and Tino interact with each person individually. I’m confident that my bond with my dog grows stronger due to consistent communication of expectations. It is all a work in progress, but now I’m enjoying the process and feel up to the work, with their guidance.
I am grateful to be part of their training circle and highly recommend Angelika and Tino as conscientious and knowledgeable trainers of dogs and their people.
Thank you and we love you.
Mary Ann and Punkin
When we welcomed our Labrador retriever puppy, Charlie, into our family almost three years ago, we wanted her to be a part of our active lifestyle in a stress-free way. We knew that would require an investment of our time and resources into basic obedience training, but what we didn’t realize at the time was how profound an impact that training would have on us as a family.
We first left Charlie with Angelika and Tino when she was just 10 weeks old for a 2-week board and train in their home. We had interviewed other dog trainers prior but it wasn’t until we met Angelika that we really felt at peace with leaving our new puppy. The foundation of on-leash training Charlie received during that stay was an eye-opening experience into what was possible for her. In the weekly follow-up classes that we attended (which we still attend 2.5 years later!) it became apparent to us just how much of dog training is human training. Angelika and Tino worked patiently with us as we learned to effectively communicate with Charlie as leaders of her pack. We also realized how much Charlie thrives in a training environment. Learning and practicing new commands has provided a purposeful, positive outlet for her energy and has helped to foster her happy, calm, and loving temperament.
Much to Charlie’s delight, we continue to send her back for board and trains (i.e. “camp”) whenever we go out of town for more than a couple of days. She’s progressed so much in her off-leash training that she is able to stay off-leash while at the park, hiking, and on other outdoor adventures. We have complete and total trust that we’re in control of her at all times, allowing us to enjoy these experiences with absolutely zero stress. We’re not exaggerating when we say that on a daily basis, we receive compliments from complete strangers that we meet in parks, on trails, or in other public places who are blown away by how well behaved Charlie is.
Aside from obedience training, Angelika and Tino have been instrumental in training Charlie to perform a number of medically-related service tasks, enabling me to have her registered as my service animal and join me wherever I go. She’s also an appreciated visitor at Craig’s mom’s memory care home, where, thanks to our work with Quality K9, she is able to interact with all of the residents in a calm and gentle manner, bringing joy into their lives with her regular visits.
Our time with Charlie has been amazing and Angelika and Tino have played an integral role in that. In working with them, we’ve realized that you can’t put a price on the quality of life that comes from having a well-trained companion. As long as we have dogs, they’ll have Angelika and Tino in their lives!
Hallo Tino & Angelika,
This note is written to help any pack leaders who own hunting breeds and/or have 2 dogs in the pack. My wife and I own 2 young high energy Vizslas that are brothers from the same litter. We have always had two dogs in our packs, but this was the first time we took litter mates. That was a mistake that we will NOT make again, always take dogs from different litters! We had already invested 6 months of time, effort and money into training the boys, but they could not be easily controlled when they were together. We could get them to obey commands when alone, but not when they were together. The brothers seemed to have an unhealthy co-dependance upon each other, and it became clear that we needed professional help to diminish the bond between the brothers and increase the bond with the pack leaders “US”. I researched local trainers, and after visiting Quality K9 un-announced I saw how happy and willingly the client dogs responded to Tino. Dogs wear their emotions on their tails – these dogs were quite happy, proud, and focused on pleasing Tino and their pack leaders. You can not fake or stage that situation. After witnessing his relationship with other trained dogs I was willing to let Tino take our boys and hope that he could break the co-dependance and lay the foundation for a healthy pack.
They kept our boys for 2-3 weeks longer than usual because they needed to develop a sense of independence for each boy. It was great to see how they brought out the personality of each dog so that they could mature independently and not co-dependantly. Even better Angelika explained to me that there would be NO extra charge for the extra 2-3 weeks of their time. She said they are committed to deliver a well balanced and well trained dog to me, even if it takes a little longer than expected. That is GREAT service!
Two days after they transitioned the dogs back to our home my wife and I had a 25 person dinner party. The boys were able to maintain a perfect “place” (lay on your mat until I release you from the command) for nearly 3 hrs. Yes we did not put them in their kennels, we said, “PLACE” and they laid down on their mat 15 feet from the large dinner table. Our guests were amazed that puppies could be so obedient when guests, food, and excitement were in the same room.
In summary, Tino & Angelika earned the trust of me and my pups which allowed them to train all of us to operate like one happy pack. You will not be disappointed by hiring Tino & Angelika to train your pack!
We reached out to Quality K-9 after months of struggle with our two female smooth fox terriers. They developed some aggression issues with one another and really lacked structure and basic training. After spending time under Tino and Angelika’s training program we have seen enormous improvement in our two girls. Our dogs used to walk us but now we walk them confidently and with control. They are obedient, and best of all we can now trust them not to run out the front door when it’s open. The compassion Tino and Angelika showed our dogs was amazing. They really put their everything into their work and the results reflect that. We can’t say enough about our experience in working with them and would recommend them to anyone with dog issues big or small! Thanks for everything!!

Your Dog Is In Great Hands
Meet The Founders of Quality K-9
Tino Reinke and Angelika Clark are a dynamic husband and wife team, who turned their lifelong love for dogs and dog training into their profession.
Dog lovers in the Scottsdale area, who need some extra help with the training of their canine family member, can now take advantage of their expertise. With their combined dog training experience of over five decades, Tino and Angelika can work with even the most difficult canines.
Tino was born and raised in the beautiful country of Germany. He always loved dogs of all kinds and discovered his passion for dog training at the age of eleven, when his parents bought him his first dog.
Tino joined a local dog club and worked diligently with his female Collie, Maxi. It became obvious that Tino had a real talent for training dogs when, just a couple of years later, he and Maxi won the regional championship.
A lot of time has passed since then, but his love and devotion for the dog sport, and dogs in general, have only become stronger. In over 25 years of training dogs he is a seasoned and successful competitor in working dog trials. He has titled many dogs, his own as well as client dogs, and has worked with world-renown trainers to broaden his knowledge.
He has coached world team competitors, trained police officers and their canines, trained service dogs, and has helped hundreds of pet dogs to be better family members.
Twenty-two years ago, Angelika left her home in Bremen, Germany and came to the United States, where she started working for the United Schutzhund Clubs of America.
She was the head of the Breed Registry Department and one of the main organizers of the annual USA Sieger Show, the largest conformation show (German style) for German Shepherd Dogs in the US.
She stands in high regards with German Shepherd breeders and fanciers from all over the world for her knowledge of the breed. She has owned and titled dogs of various breeds in Germany and the US. Through her love and work with the German Shepherd Dog she met Tino Reinke, and soon the two realized that they made a formidable team.
Together they founded Quality K-9 and work alongside each other as partners in life, training, and business.
