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.

Our Golden Retriever puppy was very hard to control. He was constantly chewing on everything including our hands and feet. We needed help so we hired Happy Dog Training. Ralf has been working with our dog Teddy for 6 weeks and he is now well behaved and totally manageable. Ralf is a very knowledgable in the area of canine behavior and his knowledge has resulted in excellent results I highly recommend Ralf and his staff.

Audrey scheduled us right away for a consultation to help with our food aggressive dog. Within one week using her training and tips any family member can pull our dogs food away with out getting biten or even a growl. Our German Shepard will now wait patiently in a calm "sit" position till we put his food back for him. Looking forward to more training!

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!!!

Kevin is a professional trainer: I was fortunate to have him answer my request for a puppy trainer: at the time two puppies...after one training session I realized that I had one puppy too many and found my aggressive puppy a kingdom of his own! giggle Kevin showed up on time each Saturday (6 lessons) and arrived prepared with a training agenda that he held to: My puppy is 4 months old, male and German Shepherd so it is extremely important because of the size dog he will become for him to have good training and manners! Kevin taught him: to sit/stay, to walk calmly on lead (not pulling on the leash), to go up and down a car loading ramp. I am (extremely grateful for this training because it is a relief to have it done in preparation for the future). Kevin and I walked 'Bear' down the street to socialize him with the neighbor dogs...he learned to walk by them without challenging them to a 'fence-run-bark'! We are still working on this. I was a bit apprehensive when beginning training and Kevin told me "when you are nervous it travels all the way down the leash in to the dog and the dog knows"... We graduated Basic obedience training last Saturday 12-17-16 and received a Merit Certificate for both of us and Bear received a Rawhide bone too. Kudos to Kevin for such good training and patience with both of us! I highly recommend him for your training needs...

Kyla is patient, experienced, and great to work with. She knows a ton of information about dog behavior and helps owners understand their dog's behavior better. Although primarily she works with the pit bull breed and larger dog breeds, she worked with our 23 lb Jack Russel mix. She is quick to respond to texts and phone calls. We noticed changes in our dog's behavior almost immediately. He had difficulty with new people and dogs coming to our house and passing dogs on walks. She gave us quick and easy tips to work with our dog at home as well. Kyla's mentality about training dogs to be balanced and healthy really stuck with us. We highly recommend her!

About

Sea Wolff Dog School promotes respect and understanding of the dog through the education of dog owners. We provide low-cost group classes with emphasis on responsible dog ownership, leadership, and good dog manners. Private lessons and training packages are available. The packages are customized based on your needs and personalized by your preferences. Canine Good Citizen classes and tests are also offered. Most dogs will be able to pass the CGC test after one of Sea Wolff Dog School's basic classes! Basic dog training will bring your pet closer to the perfect dog you had in mind when you brought your puppy home. It will teach you to communicate with your dog in a way that creates the bond between you and your dog that both of you crave. Owning an obedient dog will make you a more responsible pet owner, and your dog a welcome member of your neighborhood. Training opens the door to all kinds of competitive venues -- i.e., agility, obedience, or rally. Maybe your dog could be a therapy dog to help children read and brighten the days of patients in nursing homes and hospitals. These types of activities are open to all breeds of dogs and mixed breeds. My name is Claudia Wolff. I am a member in good standing with the American Kennel Club and the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of Southern California. Being an AKC certified evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen and the Puppy S.T.A.R. program, I am committed to providing the most effective and convenient solutions for my clients' dog training needs. I avidly pursue ongoing continuing education and professional development by attending seminars and keeping current with industry literature. Sea Wolff Dog School puts clients first and is well respected and referred by local veterinarians and the town of Apple Valley and the city of Hesperia. The purpose of a training class is to teach the student the skill of communicating with another specie, a dog. Just like learning a foreign language, it is done systematically. The traditional obedience exercises are used as means to this end. They can be viewed as the rules of grammar, which then enable us to use words we have learned correctly. Once he has learned to communicate with his dog and now understands his dog's language, the student can resolve most any problems on his own. We teach dog obedience the right way.

About

I have 20+ years experience in behavior, basic obedience I'm a certified service dog trainer/instructor

About

I am able to calm the excited dog but at the same time able to utilize the excitement to get results. I offer leash training, basic commands (sit, lay, paw), and some advanced, such as stay, crawl and jump (all depending on the dog, of course). Food aggression, dog aggression, even people aggression are all fixable with the right handler. A very important part of my training is making sure you as the owner are able to be consistent and firm and have full respect from your fur baby. In the words of Cesar Millan, "be the pack leader".

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.
