The progress I've seen within a few sessions is absolutely amazing. Peter has shown me how to communicate with my 6 year old boxer in ways I never thought possible. I learned more about her body language and behavior in 30 minutes than I had in the previous 6 years owning her! Peter works to improve the relationship between dog and owner, not just training the dog to take commands. It's about building trust and respect. Totally worth the money and effort. If you're looking to create a positive relationship with your pet, Better Manners is most definitely the one to call.

We love Kay and are so happy to have her working with us on puppy training. She is full of helpful ideas and has been instrumental in teaching each of us (3 teenagers included) how to best train and get the results we are looking for. Each session she brings new information and tools to train with and our puppy just loves her. We are so grateful to have her with us on this journey!

Our Thumtack contact was a very knowledgeable and confident trainer names Andi Nault. She was not dissuaded by my very active Rhodesian Ridgeback who loves people and any dog withing eye view. She worked patiently with us, gave us some new tools to use with Penny and lots of encouragement. She offered doggy daycare which I thought might be useful and it was. Penny learned to read the cues of the other dogs that didn't want to roughhouse. Andi was very good with Penny, consistent, confident, reassuring and had other options to offer us if we wanted them but no pressure. She recommended Boarding facilities we had no knowledge of, other trainers, behavioral specialists, hour long dogie play time, etc. I highly recommend Andi Nault for whatever dog behavior you want to address.

Lance has an extensive knowledge on dog behavior and it shows in every aspect of his training. He was able to help us train our puppy to do basic things such as sit and stay, leave it, and even ring a doorbell to go outside to potty. Lance is able to adapt his training based on the response of the dog and our needs/requests. I HIGHLY recommend Lance. You won't be disappointed!

Dan has been wonderful with both of our dogs. We had no idea what we were doing wrong. After one session, we have seen impressive results. No longer do we have 2 unruly dogs running the house. Instead we have 2 dogs who are starting to learn patience and manners. Dan was confident he could help us and we are already seeing incredible results. Our aggression and hyperactivity issues have been corrected using very easy techniques and methods that take moments to practice. Dan was patient and understanding and someone who truly loves and understands dogs. We can't wait to work with him more. Thank you Dan! His techniques truly work and we are already seeing great progress after 1 session. We highly recommend Dan!

My husband and I got in contact with Patrice to help work with our reactive dog, Alice. We wanted to minimizing some of her behaviors on walks, like barking and lunging at other dogs, buses, trucks, bikes....pretty much anything moving. We also wanted to work on her manners when meeting new people at our house, and barking at things out the window. We appreciated the initial meeting with Patrice where she listened thoroughly to our needs, asked questions to get a better understanding, and prioritize our goals. From there, we scheduled private lessons about once a week, and saw Alice's confidence build. She LOVED Patrice, and because the training was all positive and involved her favorite thing, food, she was a very happy participant and picked up things quickly! After a session, Patrice would send out a very detailed email to summarize our training, clarify our training "homework" for the week, and she was always available to answer questions or help troubleshoot challenges in between sessions, and even check in after we ended our training program to make sure things were still going well. Alice is so much better on walks, even when buses, trucks, or other dogs are in close proximity. It's made our walks pleasant and successful when they used to be stressful. We had a friend visit who took Alice for a walk recently and didn't know we had done training -- she raved about the change in Alice on walks! We were so proud and excited to share that our training had paid off.

Have worked 10 sessions with Adam and our 1 yr 4 month old Boxer, Boss. Boss has grown immensely in these 10 sessions. Just had our final ‘check ride’ at Cabellas this morning. What a difference! Such a satisfying feeling knowing that this 65 pound baby doesn’t run around uncontrollably anymore! Adam really understands what these guys are thinking and knows exactly how to motivate and get the best results out of your K-9. Whether you want a good home pet or a professional working dog, Adam and M.O.C. K-9 Training is your answer!

My Aussie is a happy, healthy eight year old, but he was always really difficult to take for a walk. He just didn't respond to the leash, no matter the collar or the trainer, and I'd tried several of each. I would come home from what should have been a pleasant walk in tears. Then I found Rick. Now long walks with Rolly are a blessing for us both, and his obedience training has made living with my active guy much easier and more fun. I am sooooo grateful. I've also watched Rick with other dogs. He is a master of his craft. Big, little, tough or timid, he knows how to help them and how to help you, so your bond and time together become more fun and rewarding.

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.
