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!

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.

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, 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.

We highly recommend Adam Deaver and M.O.C. K-9 for your dog training needs. We just completed ten sessions with our year old lab mix, Baylor, and he went from a dog we couldn’t walk without wearing work gloves because he pulled so hard to walking at a perfect heel. He knows to go to his place when we sit sit down for a meal and does so without even being told! He can sit or lay in the front yard or at the park and watch our three kids play without fear of his running off. Through use of Adam’s easy to follow methods of consistency and accountability, Baylor has become a better canine citizen who is a pleasant part of our family!

We recently moved from a house to an apartment, leaving our dogs needing some help to adjust. Dan explained dog behavior to us before showing us techniques. We practiced with our dogs and was very pleased with their progress. We will continue to work with them. Thank you Dan!

    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.

    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.

    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?
