About We Train Dogs
Elizabeth Girard started We Train Dogs in 2002. Since then, she has worked with thousands of dogs of all breeds and ages.
Elizabeth got her start in dog training as a teenager by raising Seeing Eye puppies for Guide Dogs of the Desert.
Prior to starting her own business, Elizabeth worked with Mike Perez of MP Canine in Lakewood, California. Mike trained K9's for the Los Angeles Police Department for many years, so Elizabeth got training in both obedience and protection work.
Elizabeth is a certified evaluator for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program. She has been interviewed by The Riverside Press-Enterprise and has had articles published in multiple magazines. Elizabeth has been an active worker with many rescues in both Southern California and the Phoenix area. She is also the founder and director of Girard Training Stables, a nonprofit horseback riding program benefiting typical and special needs riders in the west valley.
