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!

Alex has a philosophy of dog training/leadership that goes so far beyond and so much deeper than anything I had heard in the past from dog training classes. In just a couple of private sessions, I have learned more from him about my dog and myself than I did in 6 weeks of puppy training classes. Alex understands dogs AND people, and this makes him a great trainer.

Although my girlfriend and I were unable to use Lissa's pet services during this trip to Denver I would like to mention how grateful we were for her correspondence while trying to locate care for our puppy. She was quick to respond thoughtfully and great with follow up as well. Thank you, Lissa!

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.

Kyli helped train our Golden Retriever Hofi. Prior to working with Kyli our dog had only completed a basic puppy training class. Kyli helped us train Hofi using a pinch and electronic collar. At the end of training, Hofi was able to obey commands on and off leash which very important to us as we are avid hikers. We recently had a baby and Hofi's training has been very helpful in helping him learn how to behave around the baby. Overall, we were very happy with Kyli's knowledge, patience, and experience as a dog trainer. She has a passion for training dogs and it shows in work.

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.

    I used Rocky Paws for over 5 years. They trained and helped to socialize my dog as well as doing daily walks and boarding her. They are responsible, punctual, kind and loving. I couldn't have asked for better care. I would highly recommend them.

    Victoria with Furever Behavior Dog Training is a wonderful trainer. Our dog was a rescue who had lived on the streets and he had many issues. Our dog guarded his food and toys, did not know basic obedience or manners, was not housebroken, did not know to come when called, did not know how to walk on a leash without pulling my arm off, did not know about or like his crate and more. After working with Victoria, we learned how to give our dog the cues he needed to get the behaviors we all wanted. He quickly learned to love his crate as his safe and special place, housebreaking was rapid and our dog learned to trust us. Victoria gave us the tools and skills we needed to be good dog owners and our dog responded positively and swiftly to Victoria's techniques. And, speaking of positive, Victoria only uses positive training methods -- no punishment. And our dog loved, loved, loved Victoria. Well done!

    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.
