Learn More About Mark's Dog Training Background

Z Pet Hotel & Spa owner Mark Edwards has been around dogs his entire life and has used his extensive knowledge of dog behavior to develop an extremely effective training program. After many years of dog training, he is thoroughly adept at training dogs from basic to advanced obedience in a way that owners can easily maintain. He enjoys teaching owners to train their dogs based on positive and negative reinforcements. 

Prior to establishing himself in Santa Fe in 2001, Mark owned and operated a security company that specialized in training, renting, and selling personal protection dogs and guard dogs for commercial security. He was able to retrain shelter dogs that were deemed too dangerous, abused, and misunderstood to be in a domestic environment. When working with these types of dogs, he found it very satisfying to train them as effective security dogs as well as teach them basic obedience and healthy social skills so they could be placed back into loving homes.

With his past experience working with all the different levels of dog training, he has a deep understanding of the drives that dogs have. Mark has an finely honed sense of how to handle all breeds of dogs through formatting and typing of personality traits, dispositions, temperaments, and characteristics of their breed.
