Eric put us on a crash course to improve the behavior of our 2 older dogs while our new puppy went to "doggie boot camp" for three weeks (which Eric recommended). It was amazing how Eric was able to modify our dogs' behavior, and at the same time teach us how to better handle the dogs, in such a short time. Eric truly understands how and why dogs behave the way they do and is excellent at reading dog's body language. We were impressed by the amount of time and caring Eric gave to our dogs.

Sean was absolutey incredible with our American Bull dog 🐶, Enzo. Enzo is such an important part of my life that I wouldn’t just trust anyone to watch my fur baby! Not only is Sean professional and has incredible work quality, he has such a remarkable way with dogs. Any time we would drop Enzo off for Sean to watch him, whether it be for a day or a week, Enzo would be ecstatic. He never got that way when we would take him to any other doggy day camp. Not only did I know Enzo was in great hands, Sean would send me updates and videos of him playing with his dogs which always put my mind at ease and made me so happy that Enzo was having a blast. Even after a couple of days with Sean, we noticed that Enzo was actually behaving better in general and seemed happier to please us. That just shows how much attention, care, and training he was receiving. I would highly recommend Harmony House to anyone that needs training or dog sitting. Sean is awesome and his love for dogs and making them and their masters happy is what makes it harmonious indeed.

We've only had one session so far, but Allison is great! She was able to get our dog following instructions and commands within minutes of being here. We'll be continuing with Allison and even sending our dog to puppy boot camp for a few days. We're looking forward to working with her going forward.

We recently rescued a new canine family member and required extra support with "Melville's" fear-based aggression. Within minutes of his arrival Scott effectively instructed us on proactive, preventative methods that instantly changed our dogs behavior. Scotts help has saved us from shipping out dog off to behavior camp with a huge price tag. We are thrilled with Scott at Barl Busters.

      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.
