  • What We Do - Dog Training

  • The Ideal Personal and Family Protection Dog

    We specialize in producing the ideal Armor K9 protection dog, which in our mind is a friendly, good-natured companion who is obedient and reliable yet an alert and courageous protector. We do not produce vicious attack dogs!

    An Armor K9 protection dog is family first, protector second. Our goal is to produce each protection dog with unmatched training that gives you peace of mind and acts as an excellent deterrent to the bad guys.

    For years our protection dog packages have come in three levels, but we are excited to announce the addition of two new protection dog packages. We are committed to providing flexibility within each package so we can tailor our offerings to accommodate your needs.

    We have many solutions available from fully trained personal protection dogs available for sale or young dogs in training. If we don't have what you are looking for, we can procure and train a dog for you. We are partnered with many of the top breeders in the world. No solution is impossible!

    Our new protection dog packages are designed for a dog you already own that you think might qualify for protection dog training. After a successful evaluation, we add protection dog training skills such as bite development to our high-level obedience training course.

    If you have a dog that you would like to be evaluated for our top-notch protection dog training program, please contact us for an evaluation.

  • Dog Obedience Training

    At Armor K9 our dog obedience training programs are designed to create effective communication and a bond between you and your dog. This results in an obedient, well-behaved dog and a lifetime of human/dog harmony.

    We achieve this through our specialized services and offerings that focus on teaching the dog and instructing you, the owner. Our special methods have proven to be successful with each dog over and over again.

    Our puppy training classes get you started out right with your puppy. Your dog of any age will benefit from our dog training classes.

    Negative behavior such as aggression can sometimes be a key issue when dog owners like you make a decision to keep a pet. Each dog trainer at Armor K9 is trained to address behavior like this during dog training.

    Behavior modification for canine aggression can be achieved in our private lessons. Oftentimes, if a puppy was not trained correctly, this behavior can occur. Each pet is different, which makes our special training methods so effective. 

    We give you basic tools to use with your canine so behavior like aggression will not occur in your pet. These tools help you stay connected to your dog. We also offer expert advice for all types of dog behavior.

  • Owner/Head Trainer

    Lee Divelbiss

    Experience 10+ Years

    (928) 493-4160

    Lee has spent a lot of time around dogs. Lee grew up in a family that bred different types of dogs. His mother bred and raised Labradors and Weimaraners as a hobby/side business.

    His father bred and raised Bloodhounds. His grandfather bred, raised and trained Greyhounds for racing. His uncle was also an excellent dog trainer.

    With Lee's exposure to lots of dogs and the expertise his family shared with him, Lee was able to learn a lot about dogs from a young age.

    After his military service, Lee found himself at college with a Whippet puppy named Elliot who he trained to be an amazing Frisbee dog.

    After college and with a degree in Psychology, he became attracted to Dobermans. Lee took to training them with the idea of having a completely reliable family companion who could go into protection mode with the "flip of a switch" and then immediately return to that reliable family companion afterward.

    Lee now specializes in training Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherds, German Shepherds, and Shepinois to be world-class protection dogs. He still loves Dobies though!

    Lee understands the great need for excellent dog training in Arizona and has committed Armor K9 to provide you with the finest dog training from the best dog trainers! He has had a vision for expanding Armor K9's area of service to include Phoenix and the greater Phoenix metro area for years.

    We understand the Phoenix is the fastest growing city in America right now and the Phoenix metro area keeps growing. We are committed to growing with it and are offering now our services to the growing Phoenix area.


  • Phoenix Branch Manager/Head Trainer

    RD Miller

    Experience 10+ years

    (480) 442-5174

    We are proud to announce that our Phoenix branch of Armor K9 will be run and managed by RD Miller. RD has been unofficially/officially working with Armor K9 for the past three years.

    He will be a great asset to the Armor K9 team, and we couldn't be more enthusiastic to endorse his addition to our growing team!

    RD has been training and working with dogs most of his life but has really been at it hard the last 4 years. Specializing in obedience training, dog behavioral issues and personal protection, he is also really good at teaching tasks.

    What is his favorite part about dog training? ‘It's when a family is about to get rid of their dog because of aggressive dog behavior, or it's thought to just be a "bad dog." The family feels they have no other options with their dog. Then they hire us. When we are able to fix the issue for the dog and they are able to keep the dog, that is pure satisfaction.’

    When he's not training your dog, RD enjoys camping and road trips with his family and his two dogs, Bane and Quinn.

    The addition of RD to the Armor K9 team is huge! His love of dogs and helping their owners along with his devotion to learning new skills and gaining new tools for his toolbox are all second to none. RD's addition to our team will allow us to reach the greater Phoenix area including areas like Scottsdale, Chandler, and Surprise.

    A genuine "good guy," we are pleased and honored to call RD a friend, colleague, and now Armor K9 branch manager.

    If you are in the Phoenix or greater Phoenix metro area and are in need of expert dog training, call RD and he will be happy to assist you! (480) 442-5174
