Rescue Rehab!
We Work With Every Type of Dog Coming From Every Background Imaginable, and This Certainly Includes Rescue Dogs!

Rescue Rehab

In our Exceptional Canines In Home Training Programs, we work with every type of dog coming from every background imaginable, and this certainly includes rescue dogs. 


We absolutely love rehabilitating these dogs so that they can become part of a loving family. 

Dogs are truly resilient, so most of their problems can be resolved once they have some structure, obedience, and compassionate attention. Whether your rescue dog is under-socialized and nervous, recovering from an abusive environment, or just wild and out of control, we can help.


Abused Dogs


Rescue dogs who have been abused need to learn how to trust humans again. Whether the abuse was physical or mental (resulting from neglect and under-socialization), these dogs are typically afraid of the world and everything in it. 

It can be very difficult to even get these dogs out just to walk them for exercise because their fear issues make it impossible. Once a bond with their new owners is established, it may become so strong that these dogs cannot cope with being alone. 


Their entire sense of well-being becomes hinged on their proximity to their new “people”, making it difficult to leave them alone for even short periods of time. 


Once these types of dogs begin to gain some confidence through a structured obedience program, they can start to see the world as an exciting and interesting place. 

We get a lot of joy out of restoring these neglected or abused dogs to the trusting and faithful creatures they were intended to be.


Hyperactive Dogs


A different result of poor socialization can be the wild and crazy dog who is bouncing off the walls and lacking any self-control. Most dogs were bred to be energetic. But, without proper guidance, structure, and focus this energy can lead to nuisance behaviors. 


These are the dogs who have gone from one home to the next, always ending up back in the shelter because no one can manage or put up with them. These dogs frustrate people by bolting and running away, destroying everything in the house, dragging people around on leash, and getting overly excited every time they see another dog or human. 


These are the dogs that, sadly, end up living in their crates because people do not know how to deal with them. 

The reality is that these dogs have learned that all attention comes from bad manners. It is our job to show them that the OPPOSITE is actually true.


Through our Phoenix and surrounding cities obedience training programs, we teach these dogs how to use their brains to make better choices, exercise impulse control, and see that much better things come from calm behaviors.

Real People, Real Results!

Our Cockapoo barks at everything and we hired Ingo for that reason. During his 1 1/2 hour visit he advised us to be more calm with AbbE and if we were calm she would learn to be calm. Its been about 10 days and we already see the difference in her personality! She is barking much less, doesn’t startle as easily and we are all very happy with her progress so far. I would recommend Exceptional Canines to anyone with a dog that is having many different issues..
