I started looking at dog trainers a couple months ago but wasn’t able to get one until just recently, but Valerie was one I had talked to in the beginning and she followed up with me and when we were ready she was ready to get started. We did a private in home training with her this week which went well and she actually recommended doing a group obedience class since our dog doesn’t like people but loves dogs and learns well from them. Which actually saves us a lot of money so it was nice that she even recommended that and was looking for his best interest in learning, and not her best interest of making more money. We will be starting the group training next week and I’m excited to continue working with her and see if she’s able to help our baby in the long run.

Mark is an exceptional dog trainer. After only one hour of working with our 1 year old Pit Bull Mix, Winston was a different dog. Prior to working with Mark, Winston was not able to walk on a leash, was exhibiting fear aggression and anxiety, and was very insecure. Although, I did not recognize these as Winston's personality traits, I just thought he was exhibiting typical stubborn puppy behavior. Mark helped us understand the personality and psychology of our dog and our role of providing structure and consistency to help him become a well-balanced dog. Mark was able to gain Winston’s trust within the first visit and has made tremendous strides with him. I would highly recommend Mark’s dog training services.

Cat helped us with our dog Diesel. He is a German Shepherd that had behavior problems and aggression towards dogs and people. She is a top notch dog trainer. She took the time to learn about Diesel and what his needs were and then worked and trained him to be a better dog. Some dog trainers only have one way of training. Cat is not this way. She can assess your situation and your dog and work with you to come up with a plan that will meet your needs. She uses many styles of training and will find the one that will work for you and your pet. Cat has always been punctual with all of our appointments. Cat and all the staff at The Laundered Mutt & Training Center are kind, friendly and love animals. Thank you Cat for helping Diesel to be a better dog and for helping us to be better dog owners!!

Tabitha is an amazing dog trainer! She is very knowledgeable, and enjoys what she does. Dogs find her very approachable, and even the most fearful dogs tend to warm up to her quickly. She's amazing! I refer all of my doggie friends to her!

Amazing! David was amazing with my dog. I had a dog who had several issues on top of not having any obedience. We tried other trainers before him and they couldn't help him. We finally found David and he did a wonderful job. He got our dog to stop lunging, barking, tearing up our things, helped us build a bond, and taught him obedience commands. I am very grateful for everything he's done.

I am very pleased to recommend Off Leash K9 Training! My dog Cooper a 1.5 year old Lab/Pitt mix is a lovable energetic pup - loves to play, be around children, and get in trouble. His main issues were listening, barking - a lot, jumping, running out the door and going wild outside like a mad man (the norm?). I was afraid he was going to complete training and loose his playfulness? That was not the case! He is still the same dog.. just better! He listens and he just understands... we trust each other more, we can play outside off-leash with the nieces and nephews, go on long hikes, and be around more people who are not use to 80lbs dogs. The first long run I took Cooper off-leash, we passed by a crying baby, a group of people playing volleyball, a man carrying a stick, and another pitt... seriously I don't know he would could have possible passed any other tempting situations - Cooper stayed by my side the whole time! My nervous running partner was amazed and we even received an invite to her lake house! When I picked Cooper up from his board and train, at first I felt a bit overwhelmed and thought perhaps I was the one who really needed the training, but Nick made it clear that I could still ask him questions anytime I needed (and share success stories!). Cooper is a great dog and I am glad I made the decision to bring him to OLK9! Thanks again Ciarra, Danny, and Nick =)

We hired Dixie for our 4 year old shepherd for her anxiety issues. We had a very bad experience with another "dog trainer" so we were apprehensive about any dog trainers. Dixie was referred to us & we are so glad we called! She is wonderful! Patient, calm & a wealth of information! In 2 weeks with her help & advice we are seeing improvements with our dog! I highly recommend Dixie.

Wendy is absolutely great! We had hired Wendy for our then 12 weeks old Lab Mix “Basil”. Basil enjoyed “performing” his puppy bites on us frequently, and with his razor sharp puppy teeth, our underarms were very bloody quite often. We researched a lot on how to make him stop, but he wouldn’t listen to “No” in this case, he wouldn’t react to us letting out a “puppy weep”, nor was he impressed, if he got a timeout. It was, and still is extremely important to us to train our fur kid in a gentle, non-violent way. After some research we came across Wendy. We liked the fact that she had a life time experience as a dog trainer, would enable us to train our dog in a gentle way, and also that she would come to our house for the training sessions. This is important to understand: Wendy enables the dog owners to train their dogs properly, which – in our opinion – is the way it should be. In the very first session, she showed us how to make Basil stop, when he would get in his “puppy bite mood”. I must say, my wife and I were more than impressed on how great Wendy’s approach did work. It basically comes down to “gentle, but firm” correction of “misbehavior” and constant and active rewarding of good behavior by using voice and physical affection. (That is also a great thing we liked about Wendy – she doesn’t reward a dog with treats, but with voice and affection). Thanks to Wendy, Basil’s puppy bites were under control after the first session and in the following sessions, we learned so much more on how to properly train our dog and make him listen to our commands, which at one point in time might save his life (for instance him chasing a rabbit and running towards a street...). My wife and I are highly recommending Wendy! She is an outstanding and fantastic dog trainer with a wonderful personality. Both, dog and dog owner will benefit from her experience.

Bethany is a wonderful dog trainer. She is reliable, knowledgeable, and communicates very effectively. She took the time to listen to the concerns of the family and understood what we wanted to achieve with our dog. Using clear directions, she made me feel successful at training my dog and furthering our relationship. Bethany was also very observant about our dog, and helped me to understand what he was feeling when we tried thing other trainers had suggested (but hadn't worked). And, her email recaps of each training session are fabulous at helping keep us on track. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to help their dog with any issues they have. She's Great!

The crew at Off Leash k9 Training Palm Springs surpasses my expectations. I really didn’t know if there was any hope for me or my puppy, but the training my dog received, and the education I was given was second to none. I can literally take my dog anywhere now and she doesn’t even need a leash. It’s literally a different dog experience when you can let them roam off Leash with the confidence that they’ll come when called, and Off Leash of Palm Springs can deliver that life changing experience in just 14 days! Thank you so much to Morgan and her staff.

After doing hours of research and training on my own with my young dog, I was at my wits end with everything from potty training, to walking nicely. After speaking with Holly from Furry Tail Dog Training, we identified all of my concerns, and she gave me a clear and easy plan to help me guide my wild puppy to becoming a lovable, and manageable dog! We are so grateful for her help, because I am now taking my dog on walks with a lose lead when once I didn't think it was possible! And potty training woes are a thing of the distant past!

        About

        I am a certified dog trainer and behavioral specialist. We have a really fun training yard. I offer three classes for $20.00. I've been doing training for over 25 years. I believe that animals are a lot like us and learn from mistakes; I believe that it takes three years to fully train a dog. I go at the pace of the dog and owner. I take each dog and train them to their human's lifestyle. We teach words to the dogs and teach body language to the humans. I use many different methods. We need to understand that they are just animals, not robots, and make mistakes just like us. It's how we learn.

          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.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
