My dog Lilly and I started in September with Dion. Each class was a learning experience. I am very pleased to say Lilly (golden-doodle) is a well mannered dog on leash and when people come over. Its a commitment for you and the dog. Real time training (park setting) is great as you and the dog experience the squirrels, other dogs, people and the every day sounds. As the issue of either the owner or the dog or both (LOL) arose Dion would correct you/dog. Dion is very accommodating. I reviewed all the dog trainers I could find. And am So pleased to have been able to choose the Right trainer for us. We can walk without issue. When Lilly wants to act up I (the leader) now know what I need to do. Thanks Dion for your dedication to better living of dog and human.

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.

Chris knows his stuff! If you need help with training your dog he's the one to go to! We had our pup stay with Chris and when he came back to our house he was a model dog! It was pretty amazing that what Chris taught him didn't go away when he left Chris' home - it stuck with our pup back at our house. We definitely recommend Chris!

Training with Strong Bond is unlike any other pet service I've experienced. The focus is truly on building a relationship with your dog which is based upon respect and leadership. It tuned into my dog's natural instincts causing an unbreakable bond that is challenged and strengthened in every moment I spend with my dog. I was given plenty of take home knowledge that I can practice on my own, in every interaction I have with my dog. Strong bond training might even be tapping into making me a better person in every aspect of my life. This can be as much human training as it is dog training if you are willing to put the in work that it requires to have a healthy relationship with your pet.

Lissa took excellent care of my two dogs and cat over an extended weekend getaway. I was so pleased with the communication and attention to every detail that she provided every day. Lissa was very careful to follow my instructions and guidelines. When I arrived home, it was obvious that my dogs were very well cared for, exercised and in a very calm and peaceful state. I've had previous experience with other pet sitting services where I arrived home to unkept, anxiety-ridden, and over-excitable pets and it was so nice NOT to have to re-train them. It was also a great benefit to get regular text messages every day along with beautiful pictures of all three of my girls, giving me peace of mind while I was away that my animals were being shown a lot of attention and love. The service I received with Lissa has made it easier for me to plan weekend getaways and deal with my hectic work schedule, knowing I have someone so trustworthy to take excellent care of my pets when I am unable to. Thanks so much, Lissa!

Bill is great with our German Shepard. Our family rescued her and is teaching us how to manage her and get rid of some of her bad habits. He is very knowledgeable about dogs and knows how to take command of our dog. We still need more training and Bill is coming weekly to help us. Thanks Bill.

I contacted Lea to help with training my one year old Newfoundland, Indy. Indy is a reactive dog and is nervous around strangers, often times barking when they get too close or approach him inappropriately. For her first training session with Indy she came to the home. She was not intimidated by his size or his very intimidating bark. It didn't take more then 15-20 mins for Indy to begin feeling comfortable and to start interacting with Lea. By the end of our first session he was already leaning up against her leg and had accepted her as a friend. She offers very affordable prices compared to other trainers and has a very flexible schedule. Most importantly Lea seems to genuinely care about the animal she is training and has a unique ability to understand and work with dogs. I would highly recommend her for any problem you may be having. She has definitely helped me with Indy. I would call her again for any problem I was having without hesitation.

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.

My work stands out from our competitors for two reasons. For one, I genuinely enjoy to work with people as much as I do dogs. It shows. Sadly it is common for many trainers to grumble about their human clients. My clients receive 100% of my respect. This comes easily, because they are people who want to do right by their dog. Secondly, I am the only trainer in my company. When you call for more information, I am the same person who will show up on your door step. Be assured that I will not pawn you off on a less experienced trainer.

About

Hey, all! I train service and good, old house dogs. I offer obedience training. I prefer to start training them as puppies, and work with them from there.

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.
