|Here's what our customers are saying...
Greg Tank is an extraordinary dog trainer and the very best in
the region, without exception. After working with eight different
professional dog trainers (locally) and consulting with three
animal behavior specialists (outside of the area), I found
Treasure Valley Dog Training. It is because of my experience of
working with so many other trainers that I know and fully
appreciate how difficult it is to find a professional like Greg
Tank. His level of expertise, experience and enthusiasm,
combined with his talent for teaching dogs and their owners, is
rare enough. However, it is Mr. Tank's innate ability to
communicate with animals that puts him in a league of his own.
Treasure Valley Dog training is also unique because of other factors including but not
limited to its huge on-site fenced training field, the different types of training options
available (private, group, residency programs), the extensive range of training levels
available for dogs and their owners, and the fact that all of these services are affordable.
Last, but not least, I highly recommend Treasure Valley Dog Training because Greg and
Bev Tank run their business with integrity.

Recently my family and I decided to get a dog for a family pet. We
decided to employ Greg Tank of Treasure Valley Dog Training to
train him when the time came. Not being experts ourselves in
dog behavior, we were a little leery of picking the right dog for our
family, since we have two very young children. Greg, on his own
initiative, went out of his way to help us in our search, going as
far as accompanying us to the animal shelter to do behavioral
testing on the dog that we had selected. His conclusions were
right on the mark. The dog we selected was a wonderfully
intelligent and gentle Border Collie that loves people.
Greg trained our dog, "Apache," in basic obedience to take commands both verbally and by
hand signals. The results were wonderful. Apache was a sweet dog before the training, but
hyper and undisciplined. By the time Greg was finished with the training, Apache not only knew
and obeyed all of the basic obedience training: heeling, sitting, lying down, coming, staying in
position, going to his kennel on command, etc., but Apache also lost that hyper, uncontrollable
puppy behavior of jumping up on people and generally being an irritant. He truly came back a
disciplined dog who still retained his sweet disposition.
I can honestly recommend Greg Tank as an excellent dog trainer. He is professional,
courteous, and honest. I believe that if a dog is trainable, Greg will get results.

There are two main reasons I decided to take my dogs to puppy
classes and obedience training. The first was due to a very bad
experience of owning a dog with no training that became aggressive.
The second motivation was my time working at an animal shelter and
seeing all the dogs that would have been much better dogs if they had
received training as puppies and the many dogs that could benefit
from obedience training.
The first class I attended was Puppy Preschool with my golden
retriever mix, Captain. He did very well, and it made him a much more
obedient, socialized, and confident dog. He is currently in the
obedience class and seems to really like the interaction with other
dogs and is learning a lot.
In between these two classes, my husband "inherited" his sister's beagle, Bailey. Working at
the shelter, I know that beagles are notorious for being problem dogs, and we decided to
enter her in class to get some control over her. She was already running away and ignoring
us when we called her. I really didn't expect to do that well with her but figured it couldn't hurt.
Much to my surprise, at the end of the 8 weeks, she is coming when called, following my
commands, and is heeling beautifully. The training has been and continues to be fun and
educational, and we enjoy our well behaved dogs so much.

Merlin, a boxer that I rescued, found me in February 2004. Soon
after, we both found Greg Tank. Along with Greg's help and of
course good nutrition and lots of love and positive strokes, this dog
has blossomed into a beautiful and confident companion.
Greg has a quiet and positive way that communicates confidence to
both you and your dog. He has helped me tremendously with Merlin.
Buddy, Greg's wonderful boxer, is a great example of obedience and
off-leash training. Greg & Buddy are a great pair, and to watch what
Greg has done with Buddy is a great example of his training ability
and great knowledge of dogs.

Greg had my Yorkshire Terrier, Buddie, for approximately 3 weeks
and taught him all the obedience training including: sit, down, stay,
heel, and place. Greg takes much pride in his work and is very
generous in extending all the help that is needed after the training is
complete. Greg trains the dogs that he works with through praise and
not punishment, and it was very important to me that my dog be
handled in such a way.
I originally learned of Greg because a very good friend of mine bought a German Shepherd from
him that he had trained. I was so impressed with the accuracy and style of the training that I
asked her where she got her dog trained. There was absolutely no question that I would take
my dog there to have him trained when he was old enough.
I would recommend not only Greg's knowledgeable training capability but also his honesty and
dedication to anyone that was interested in having their dogs trained.

After purchasing our Doberman Pinscher, "Gemini," we knew,
because of the breed's high energy level and reputation, that we
needed an instructor that could produce good results, and
Treasure Valley Dog Training exceeded all of our expectations.
We started getting comments on her after she finished puppy
preschool, and now that we have completed 8 private lessons, all
of our friends and family are amazed at how well our 9 month old
In combination with affordability and flexibility, we have and would
recommend Greg Tank at Treasure Valley Dog Training to anyone
who wants great results from a dog trainer.
