Since most dog training is for the owners and not the pet, Cat knows how to train both animal and owner. What I love about her methods is that they are all non aggressive or punitive. She could be Scottsdale's Dog Whisper she is so good.

I love Brandy and Steve. They have paid very close attention to my two dogs, Charlie and Frankie. We came in with two hyper active working dogs that had little training but have picked up so much information in training class. I am trying to beg them to do a level 2 training class for my dogs to be in. I love how attentive they were before and after class with Frankie and Charlie. I also realized a lot of the work was to train me. They have trained me well. I spend 30 min a day with both of my dogs training them separately with all the tricks they taught me in there class. I would highly recommended this obedience class with Brandy and Steve. They are very reasonably priced as well as they answered my response to their services within minutes. They treat my dogs as there own and send out weekly emails regarding all the dogs in the class and what we need to work on. On the off hours of training Brandy answers my texts and sends me additional info regarding activities for working dogs that she thinks would be good for my babes. One week I didn’t have a second handler and she had her husband help me out. She’s a serious gem and moving forward I will only work with her. She’s passionate about what she does and understands dogs so well! Thanks Brandy!

Sam has trained my dog to learn many different things. Sam has even taught my labrador to retrieve my keys, phone and credit card. I am very happy with Stellar Pups and I would recommend them to others. I am even planning on to return to Stellar Pups for more training.

Eileen and Ben were fabulous! They worked with us on vocal commands and how to respond to our dogs when other dogs approach. They brought their 2 pits within them to help with the training. Plus our neighbors pup (in training) was also there. We thank them and will be calling them again for more help.

Searching for a dog trainer is not easy, let alone if you have specific demands. This was my situation. Joyce was not quite capable of accommodating what I was requesting, but she has continued to reach out to me to try to source a solution for my specific situation. That alone, someone who didn't get my business, by no fault of her own, has repeatedly checked in seeing if she could still help some how some way speaks VOLUMES on her character. If my situation was a typical one, I can assure you I would have hired her.

Yes, Mark is my brother. :) He has always been wonderful with animals. He treats dogs with patience and kindness, yet he is firm when he needs to be. He works well with both my 16 yr old Lab and 6 yr old Golden. He is also very reliable and trustworthy. He will do a great job with your precious pup. I highly recommend him.

We are AZ K9s. We just started, and we dog sit and dog walk. We also do doggie cleanup. K9s are our life; we worked so hard to be good to them. We all have animals, so we know how protective you can be, but we hope you know that you can trust us.

About

I love animals. I am great with them. I love walking animals so they will get good excersise. I am super friendly, loving and caring.

About

I don't just walk the dog and call it a job. I form a relationship with the pet and its owner. Walking dogs is something I love to do and it should be a joyful experience for your pet. I NEVER discipline another person's pet because I would be very upset if anyone ever did so to mine. I treat your pets the way I would expect anyone else to treat mine.

About

I clean after the dog, feed and give the water needed. I walk dogs to the park near my home as well.

About

I am experienced in law enforcement, and my pick of a major in college was of course criminal justice. I love training large dogs who seem aggressive, because I know they can be made into militant partners and obedient friends. Training K-9 dogs taught me to be thankful for my fellow peacekeepers, human and K-9 alike. I am affordable, and I will even train your dog while improving stance mobility and muscle toning. Call or text me for affordable quotes all day!

About

I work at Walgreens as a clerk. I do pet sitting on the side for my extra interest and income. I have been dog sitting since I was a teenager. Dogs are my favorite type of animal. They are a added joy in my life, and without any interaction with them, I feel not as happy with myself, and life is not as much fun.

About

Personalized one-on-one training with up front expectations and goals. You learn first hand how to communicate and accomplish things with your pup, not by miracle programs or expensive gadgets.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How old should a puppy be for training?

Dog training shouldn’t wait until you’re having behavior problems. If you get a new puppy, start from the beginning with professional training to give both you and your puppy the tools you need for a healthy relationship. Dog training is as much about teaching the owner how to interact with their new dog as it is about the dog learning to behave. Puppy training can start as early as eight weeks old. Trainers who offer puppy training programs may works specifically with dogs between the ages of 8 and 18 weeks old. Trainers can teach owners about potty training and how to deal with accidents, working with separation anxiety, and training your pooch out of destructive behaviors like chewing, biting and demand barking. Puppies will start to learn to walk on-leash and other basic skills.

In addition to behavior training, socializing your puppy is an important part of dog training. Socializing your dog means they become comfortable and confident in a variety of settings and have a great foundation for becoming a well-adjusted adult dog. After your puppy has had the proper vaccinations, you can start to introduce it to a variety of different dogs and people in safe settings.

Which dog training method is best?

The best type of dog training for both you and your dog depends on the outcomes you hope to achieve. If you want your dog to learn agility training, go to someone who specializes in those techniques. Regardless of whether you want your dog to learn basic behavior or competitive-level tricks, the majority of dog training is actually about training the owner how to communicate with their dog. Most professional dog trainers agree that a model of training based on positive reinforcement breeds a happy, healthy, well-adjusted dog. The alternative to positive reinforcement training is using force or aggression techniques like physical punishment or shock-collar training to get the dog to do (or not do) a behavior. While the dog may learn how to behavior as you direct, it is also learning to communicate with force and aggression, and will in turn use those behaviors on other dogs (or people) that are smaller or weaker than it is. Before signing up with a dog trainer, meet with the trainer and ask for references. Watch the trainer interact with your dog, and make sure they treat your dog with patience and firm kindness. Ask them questions about their training methods:

  • What type of training methods do you use?
  • What is your background and training, and how did you become a dog trainer?
  • How long do you expect that we will work together before we achieve the results I’m after?

How long does it take to train a puppy?

Dog training depends on the dog and how much homework the dog owner is willing to put in. Puppy training is similar to dog training in that the onus of the work depends on the owner learning new ways to interact with their dog. For a quick crash course, you can opt for a single, two hour smart-start puppy training consultation to teach you the ins and outs of being a new dog parent. You can learn how to manage potty training and what to do if the puppy experiences separation anxiety. As long as you’re willing to work on dog training a little bit each day, your puppy will quickly learn these new behaviors. If you’re not confident about training your puppy yourself, you can enroll in a 6- to 8-week puppy training course, with weekly lessons touching on everything from bite control to obedience. Puppies usually need to be at least three months old for group training classes. If you want more intensive one-on-one work, you can opt for private lessons. Some behavior problems can be resolved in one session if the dog owner learns and can implement new skills. In the case of more serious issues, 3 to 10 private sessions can typically correct challenges.

    Our biggest issues with Murphy are the jumping when new people come in the house. He usually is fine after about 5 minutes but it is almost embarrassing for us to have people over because he jumps and runs all over and around them and they can't even walk through the door. He also barks at everything including cars that just drive by the house. We originally got Murphy because my husband worked nights and so I like the idea of him alerting us to anything out of the ordinary but he is way over the top.
