They are wonderful! My dog has never liked being boarded, but with A Paw Above, it's like summer camp for her. She loves it! Gretchen is so easy to work with and so accommodating. I can't imagine having anyone else care for my dog.

I have a small 9 year old dog and had the pleasure of having Brian Sugerman help me understand her behavior as she has gotten older. Brian is soothing, gentle and very professional. We started in March of 2015 and had Brian work with our baby for six weeks. Brian perfomed training at our home and was prompt and always very pleasant.I was amazed at the technique that he used and the actual results we saw in our dog. Brian took the time to explain what clicker training is and how effective and successful it has been. Our baby had an immediate response to Brian and he was able to correct the issues that concerned us. We highly recommend Brian for your dog training.

I was looking for a trainer that didn't just teach commands but worked with behavioral issues as well and Cliff provided that. He also wasn't just training my dog but myself included and it was a great learning experience.

When my Lab was younger he didn't want to eat regularly. Rosie combined training with dog food to make it a good experience for him. Rosie's own dog, Hanna, is one of the better trained dogs I have met and her Hogan helped so many doing his therapy work. Rosie is right up there with the best. She is a natural.

As the mom of two border collies, I want to make certain my kids are in the best of care. I have an older dog (13) and a rambunctious puppy (9 months). Danielle is responsible, kind, flexible, understands neurotic dog moms and based on the photos I receive from the dog park - fun! A five paw rating from our family!

Erinn is a very loving and knowledgeable young woman with an extensive background working with all breeds of dogs. I have 3 and they all love her and have fun when she visits! Her background includes dog training so I feel good knowing my kooky labradoodle will get a few tips! I find her to be very trustworthy and honest and feel completely at ease leaving my dogs and my home in her very capable hands. She also returns calls or msgs very quickly and is very accommodating with her scheduling. I highly recommend Erinn!!

I have a blue Weimaraner who weighed 65 lbs by 1 year old. She had trouble with impulse control and constantly pulled when walking her. Every person and dog we encountered was her new BFF! I am petite and had trouble keeping her from jumping on passers by and from being dragged down the street. Brianna walked my dog and taught me techniques and gave me the tools to train my large puppy. It took a while to train my willful and high energy dog but I can now safely walk my full grown Weim, confident that we will enjoy our walk. Brianna is wonderful with animals, has a gift for working with dogs and training both the dog’s behavior and people on how to train their dog. Brianna is caring, knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. in my opinion, her fees are very affordable. She has also helped me through my dog’s skin rash issues by recommending skin remedies which have been helpful as I do not like giving her antibiotics. I cannot say enough good things about Brianna and highly recommend her. She has been my Dog Whisperer for the past 2 years!

Yes Dog Training has been a God-send. Stuart is great with our dog, Molly, and knew just how to address some dominant behaviors we wanted to correct. He also came very last minute to take care of her when we went out of town for a couple of days. Molly loves him and we love that he is trustworthy and responsible.

I was very impressed with Love On A Leash’s dog training! She is very intuitive to the animals she works with and highly skilled in her ability to train dogs. Our sweet pup is such a “good boy” now. He had a problem with jumping on our guests, disobedience, and begging.. our fault, I know. But I am very thankful that we decided to use this company. I recommend Love On A Leash!!

Dave has been fantastic! I recently adopted a small dog who had been abused and is very afraid of men, and Dave has already made significant progress with him after only two sessions. Dave teaches through positive reinforcement and the reward system, and my dog has already learned so much. It is really helpful that he is able to come to my home to do the training. He does a fantastic job of communicating to me what he is doing, so that I am also learning so much about how to communicate with my dog to keep the learning process going. We are currently doing an hour long session twice a week, but Dave gave me a few options that he thought would work best. Highly recommend!

    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.
