Raquel is absolutely amazing and words cannot adequately express how thrilled we are with her dog training services (actually she trains people to communicate with dogs). Our deaf and partially- sighted Great Dane had some behavior issues. It's hard to manage any 140 pound dog, much less one that is deaf and sight-impaired. Other trainers (not on Thumbtack) recommended expensive or lengthy training sessions, and even a 10 day boot camp. Raquel taught us how to understand and train our dog, and she did it in THREE HOURS! Amazing! She explained dog psychology and sociology, and taught us how to work with our big boy. She's also available for telephone follow-ups without charge. She clearly has a gift for dogs and loves what she does, and we're thrilled. If you're looking for a dog trainer, look no further - Raquel is truly wonderful.

Good communication. Our aggressive stray dog we took in had no hope, until we found Kym...1st day he was sitting on command, walking on the lead with the proper equipment. She appeared very knowledgeable and was caring & proved to be a success on the first time in our training for our new dog Balto. I highly recommend her.

I am currently working on service dog training with Denise. She is AMAZING!! My SD I'm training is also the first dog I've ever owned. That being said, Denise is really patient with me as I learn how to be a good dog owner as well as train my dog. She is very go with the flow with the training, as far as if I have anything come up in between classes, we address the problem and work through it right away. I'm so happy she's a part of our lives! Best most professional service I've recieved.

Cassidy helped me to start training my 2 dogs at my home. She was so easy to work with and my dogs loved her. They were pooped when she left as they thought she was playing with them for 2 hours. I was very impressed at how much knowledge she has not only about training but also about the psychology of a dog. She was exactly on time and her work ethics are top of the line. She doesn't waste time doing other things, its spent on the dogs. I cannot, at this time, point out anything that I didn't like about her or her work. The job is not finished as yet.

They did an excellent job with our pitbull, Fiona! She was only 5 months old and very shy and timid....they worked with her and worked with her and she is now very obedient and has gained confidence. We are also getting a service dog from them for our autistic son. Two thumbs up!!

Love Ur K9 is the best decision I ever made for my Mini Australian Shepherd, Camo. I cannot say enough how good they have been to me, and my dog. I am forever grateful for everything they have done for us. Here's the full story: I heard about Kevin through a friend who had a great experience after her dog was trained by Kevin. I was looking for a dog trainer who could not only help with obedience training my three month old puppy, but also work on some dominance behavior issues. I had read so many books on raising a puppy, and also grew up in a family with many dogs so I thought I knew what I was doing. Our first meeting with Kevin was in our home, where he met Camo, and got a better understanding of our home setup and routines. It is also where Camo was comfortable and displaying some early signs of dominant behavior. Kevin immediately picked up on this and made some changes to the way in which we interact with Camo. We started puppy behavior and obedience training that same week. Kevin also trained us as handlers, so that we understood the training and could repeat it at home, that way Camo would not be able to default back to bad behaviour. When Camo was 9 months old, we heard that we had to move to Australia for my husband's work. There was no way that I could make the move without Camo. Australia is extremely strict with importing pets, and theres a six month intensive preparation of vet checks, and massive costs involved before dogs are allowed to enter the country. We had to leave two months after we heard the news so we had to make a plan for Camo in the meant time. Kevin took Camo into his home for four months, looking after him, doing service dog training with him, and helping with many arrangements to get Camo reunited with us. Camo joined us in Australia in June and I am elated to have my best friend back by my side once again. He is still full of personality, but by far the most obedient, trained and socialised dog in Melbourne!!! THANK YOU Love Ur K9, from the bottom of our hearts!!!

We are house sitting a dog for 6 weeks, and we needed immediate training as the dog had not been previously trained. Allison came over, helped me immensely, and we are on the road to good behavior! Allison will be available as our needs arise, but I highly recommend her for her knowledge, patience and guidance.

Jessie is knowledgeable and reliable about walking dogs. She has some training experience. My dog is very leash reactive and I'm not totally comfortable letting him go with someone without my supervision. Jessie was willing to let me do that. For now, I've postponed dog walking, but not because of Walk'n Wag'n. They seem to be a reliable and professional company. I would recommend them.

Ted Bellmyer / 5ok9 is my first choice for boarding school / training for dogs. It's obvious that Ted really understands and loves dogs. I have seen him resolve issues with mine, and several other people's dogs through his training / boarding process. Even when training is not required, and I have to travel, Ted is my first choice for dog boarding, because I know he will take great care of my dogs. I have recommended his boarding to coworkers and friends, and will continue to recommend him to everyone who might need dog boarding or training.

I am so happy to have found Daniele and Beijo's Corner. I had just got out of a relationship and I felt like I wanted to adopt a pet to keep my mind off things. Daniele helped me to adopt my tuxedo cat Midnight. Daniele said that cats fit my personality, and all this time I thought I was a dog person! Midnight though very loving was also very timid. He would cry when I left the house for work and it would disturb the neighbors. He would also run and hide under the bed when I had company over. I went to the Beijo's Corner website and I saw the packages that Daniele offered for the pet behavioral service. Daniele came to my rescue! She has been working with Midnight on the anxiety and socialization packages. I also had homework of my own to do. This was an amazing learning experience. I now know that it eases Midnights anxiety if I play soft jazz before I leave to work. And that is just one of the many tips and tricks I have learned during this journey. I do not know what I would have done with out the help of Daniele and Beijo's Corner. And I am exciting for what's to come!

I had used a trainer with limited success and was frustrated by the experience. I was referred to Bark to Basics by a colleague who experienced great results by working with Melissa at Bark to Basics. We had the same great outcome. She worked with us to help us better understand our dogs responses to us. We tried Bark to Basics rewards based approach and it worked. We learned so much about dog behavior and responses from Melissa. We as pet parents, required more training than our dog! Melissa also is a pet sitter which helped reinforce our training while we were away.

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.

Carissa was my trainer and she is the absolute best! She was super professional and friendly which I really appreciated. She was able to really train my dog Zuke when I was the most frustrated with his progress. He has had a complete turn around since Carissa has been working with him and I am truly grateful to her for it. She took the time to give me tips and tricks on how to handle him on the leash, his former biting problem and helped with his whining and barking. My next dog I will definitely be calling her directly I can't imagine anyone else helping me or working with my pups!!!

All aspects of Paw by Paw is amazing. Ayeumi is so kind, patient and understanding of the dogs that she is training. She got our dog as a baby and then he went back 8 months later and a 100 lbs heavier. Her training of both the dog and owner is superb as well as her assistance when needed. I would recommend her absolutely and proudly.

Damien was very quick to respond and easy to get along with. I was having some issues with one of two dogs and he worked with them both. I got outstanding results and he was very accommodating. He came to my house or came to the dog park or anywhere I thought was a good location. He was flexible and super knowledgable. At times, I had questions or problems and I would text him and he would respond very quickly. It was truly amazing. He felt much more like a friend than a dog trainer. Thanks Damien!

I am a person who struggled for years to find the right trainer for my own dogs, I wasted time and money on trainers who over promised and under delivered. Their expert knowledge backed by years of experience and education, compassion and dedication I have NEVER encountered with any other dog trainers in and out of Orange County...and what's even better is they are all about giving back to their community!!! They give discounts on training for Active Military, Veterans, First Responders, and to people who adopt from shelters and rescues.

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.
