Pete is an excellent trainer. Even though, with previous dogs, we have been through several types of training. Having Pete in the home he shows us real world ways to train our Samoyed puppy in such a way as she doesn't forget what she learned as soon as she leaves the trainer's premise. Highly recommend Better Manners for any dog training needs.

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!

After a few training sessions, I can already tell a difference in the relationship I have with my dog! And that my dog has with me. Alex’s training style was exactly what my dog and I needed, as it involves more self reflection than just a quick-fix. We not not only focus on what’s going on with my dog, but also what’s going on with myself. If you come into the training humble and willing to learn, you can actually get to the root of some long standing obstacles you may have with your dog. I’m amazed at the realizations I’ve had in how I might be contributing to my dogs challenges. Even though we’re only a few sessions in, I am getting the sense that this training will have long lasting positive effects. If you’re looking for something that goes beyond just training your dog to “sit and stay”, this is the training for you. Your dog will only love you more for it!

My dog Pixie and I have been working with Michelle for the last few months, and it has been life changing! Pixie's habit of jumping on people, pulling hard on the leash during walks and her reactivity to dogs (and bunnies!) were all making it difficult to have fun and enjoy my dog. Within 5 minutes of meeting my dog, Michelle had Pixie listening and focused on her, and following all the basic commands she gets too excited to follow around new people! It was so impressive! Michelle is always professional, and always willing to spend whatever time the dog and owner need during that session to introduce and practice new things. She is great about answering questions and giving homework that really reinforces the training. We have worked on door manners, greetings, walking easily on leash and her reactivity to dogs and bunnies! It really is like having a new dog! All with positive reinforcement (no awful shock collar!). And the best part, Michelle is teaching me how to be a better friend to my dog, by helping me pay better attention to Pixie's reactions to the world around her. I plan on getting another dog in the future, and I will definitely have Michelle at Peak train my new baby as well! (Picture is of Pixie in a down-wait with treats on feet)

Bill, at Rocky Mountain Canine Academy, has been a great asset in working with us and our puppy. Bill communicates well, both prior to coming, and during the training. This has lead to effective training with our puppy. We also feel that the price is fair. Would definitely recommend.

    Matt did an incredible job training our dog Lucy. I worked every week with her and trained her at her pace instead of trying to rush her. I really appreciated his care and understanding of our dogs feelings. He was very flexible with the classes which was great for our schedules. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to obedience train their dog.

    We hired Brandon to mow our lawn, he has always been prompt, reliable and done a great job! He let us know immediately when his mower died in the middle of mowing (we were not home at the time), and returned to finish the job the next day.

    About

    Hello, my name is Kate, and I just moved to Denver, Colorado, from Livonia, Michigan! I love being outdoors and love being around animals! My hobbies include hiking, biking, reading, gardening, and painting. When living in Michigan, my parents had a Goldendoodle named Murphy who was packed full of energy. Our nightly ritual was going to the park and playing Frisbee for hours until we were both worn out! I am a very reliable person with a great work ethic! I am friendly and would love to work with you and your pups!

    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.
