My dog Tristan, a standard poodle, is getting elderly and has arthritis with very bad weakness in his back legs so it has gotten to the point that taking him to a groomer is too hard on him and more dangerous of him getting hurt. I am so thankful I found Desiree who does in-home groom visits where Tristan can be comfortable, not have to stand so long and can now even lay down in the comfort of my home and get groomed. Desiree was on time, she took time to let Tristan warm up to her, she was so gentle and has the experience to gently handle my elderly dog, she cleaned up after, she was so friendly and easy to talk to and Tristan looked wonderful afterwards! She even helped put a name to a possible health problem just from hearing Tristan cough so will ask my vet about it. I am so happy to have found Desiree and she has gained a permanent customer.

I'm abosoulty happy with the way Don Kirkish works, he showed up to my house for an introductory session for only $50, showed up on time, was very friendly & easy going. He immediately receives my dog with open arms & instantly started working with him. To my surprise my dog Major caught on very quickly & right away listening pretty well! What i have been trying to teach Major in months, Don came & taught him in minutes! Major was very happy with Dons services as well! If my dog is happy. Im estatic! My favorite thing about Dons work is that he uses pure love & commands to train. Without treats! That way dog always responds. It was truely a blessing to find him.. My family & Major look forward to continue working with him! If your looking for a trainer for your dog & come across Don. Don't hesitate, give him a call!! You will NOT be sorry.. I MEAN IT!!

After years of my miniature Australian shepherd pulling on the leash and generally being unruly on walks, Kevin was able to show me how to walk him on a slack leash in 2 sessions. I never thought my hyper-mini could behave so well on walks, but already mid-course through his 8 session package I am seeing great results. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone searching for a Sacramento dog trainer.

Choosing the right dog trainer for my dog Happy seemed like a daunting task when I first got started. I had three different trainers come for a consultation with my boy before I called Tierney with Unleash Your Beast. I feel lucky to have found her. She made me feel at ease. Her calm nature and knowledge of dog behavior was very impressive to me. And Happy seemed to really like having her work with him some. She helped me to better understand my boys not so amazing behavior and made sure I understood how she could help us overcome our problem. Tierney's confidence in the situation put my mind to rest and I am super excited to get started with Unleash Your Beast's board and train program as I feel it is what is best for my boy.

Kevin gave us an amazing introductory lesson, without the pressure of committing to future lessons. He stayed a long time and worked with two of our dogs although we only set up to work with one. Looking forward to learning a great deal more from him!

Our dog,Bambi, stays at Tug Dogs for a month at a time when we go out of town, a few times a year. Sometimes she is also there for a shorter stay. She is treated like a member of the family, with kindness, love and respect, The care, training and socialization she receives there is far superior to any she has had from other trainers. We have total confidence that she is in the best place she could possibly be! The care Bambi gets at Tug Dogs is way above the highest rating on your scale! We recommend Tug Dog without reservation!!!

    Everything she did was great. Dog happy, owner happy


    I have always been passionate about dogs, and now I have taken that love to the next level by offering clients a safe and loving environment for their pets to stay in. I also offer basic dog training (not behavior modification).


    I am an experienced dog walker/pet sitter. I am willing to come to you or, if you feel more comfortable, you may come to me. My rate per dog is $15 per hour for walking and $10 per hour for pet sitting. I can do overnight stays as well for $75 a day.


    I am very outgoing and adventurous person. I love taking my siblings and pets to the park and playing with them. I love kids, and animals. I usually take the dogs that I walk to parks after we go on our walk and let them run around a play for a little bit before I take them home.


    My name is Jennyfer. I have been living in this area on and off for 36 years. I have been taking care of animals all my life. I feel that a house is not whole without an animal in it. I have had many jobs taking care of other people's pets, and I see their pets as a member of my family when I'm taking care of them. I am a certified dog trainer and have a degree from Animal Behavior College. I have been training dogs professionally since 2006 but my parents say that I have been training dogs and animals since I was three. I took care of all the neighborhood animals when people were away and trained some of their dogs. I have experience with all types of animals, from horses to mice. I offer the following: * Dog training: group, private, daycare, or board and train * Pet sitting in your house * Boarding in my home * Dog walking


    My name is Jessica. I love animals. I get along great with dogs, cats, birds, etc., and they like me too. I love walking them and letting them get their energy out. I am 18 years old, and I am very responsible.


    When I walk with animals, either in the heat of summer or dead of winter, I truly enjoy myself. I like getting to know the owners and the animals I meet to create a more positive, friendly experience.

    Many consider me the #1 dog trainer in North America because no one is getting better results with behavioral problem solving, especially with aggressive dogs, AND, No one is getting better results when it comes to getting dogs to listen OFF-LEASH without SHOCK COLLARS.


    I've grown up around animals. I have had four dogs so far. Right now I have two greyhounds. I have dog sat and house-sat. I've taken cared of all types of animals by walking them, feeding them, and playing with them.


    I'm walking your dog. I love to play, walk and train dogs. I have pretty much a free schedule to fit around your busy one.


    I love animals. I really need the job. I'm always available. I'm in high school. I am a female. I have never done this before, but I'm willing to start whenever you shall need me.


    I walk dogs, I train, play, parks, toys and I make my own healthy treats. I am available when needed. I am very flexible.


    I provide walking, sitting and any special care service for dogs. I will travel to your destination. I love animals. I have two dogs of my own!

    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.
