Welcome to Phoenix Working Dogs, where “it’s all about dogs!”
Our primary mission at Phoenix Working Dogs, is to provide classes that will educate you as to how dogs work, and to train you to handle a search dog. It doesn’t matter whether you are wanting to compete in nose work, or maybe you are dabbling with the idea of joining your local SAR team.** Whatever your desire, we are here to help you fulfill your goal.
**NOTE: We do NOT offer SAR training. However, we can refer you to the appropriate agency for that training, if that is what you are looking for.
Our secondary mission is to provide trained search dog teams to anyone with a valid need.
In addition to supporting our local law enforcement and Southern Oregon SAR teams, we also support the general public. If you have a valid need, that has yet to be satisfactorily fulfilled, let us know the details, and we can work something out, even if it is simply referring you to an appropriate agency/team.
Our own search dog teams are trained volunteers and available to anyone FREE, however, law enforcement (LE) will ALWAYS be contacted before we respond, to ensure that we are not working an open law enforcement case.
Any profits made from our classes and merchandise support our cause to vest and equip police working dogs in the state of Oregon, our own search dog teams, Southern Oregon regional SAR teams, and a few dog rescues.
