Brian was great with our two puppies, Ziva and Zoe. His patience with two new puppies was amazing. He worked with them on several different behaviors. His training method works with clickers and rewards for desired behaviors. Both dogs picked up on his training quickly and effectively.He is always available by phone to answer any questions we might have. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, effective dog trainer.

He is a very knowledgeable trainer and our dog loved him immediately. After one slesson she would sit and stay for several seconds. She would bark if I or my wife got out of the car or left the house and again after one season she is almost cured of that behavior. We bought the four lesson package.

Franco is truly amazing with his God-given talent. He takes the time to explain what makes a dog tick. Realistically, his title should not be dog trainer but people trainer. We have learned so much from him in regards to how a dog thinks and as a result we have a very well behaved dog.

Jane, on her first visit, has changed our life. She is a great gift for our family. Her training with animals as well as family counseling is an amazing and effective catalyst for positive change. I highly recommend this affordable, skilled, talented, committed animal trainer. Our dog Harry is already happier, as our we.

Danielle has been wonderful to my dogs especially my bigger dog's anxiety and aggressive tendencies and my smaller dog's barking problems. Nobody has ever come to my house to dog sit except for one trusted friend who the dogs know for a long time. And that friend is still yet to earn 100% of the dogs' trust. Anyone else, my dogs do not trust and I will have problems. Danielle knows exactly how to deal with difficult dogs and has won their hearts and licks. Very professional and reliable. I highly recommend her.

We can't thank Carol enough for helping us with our dog Sandy! We were at our wits end until she came to our home and showed us ways to calm her isolation anxiety and keep her mind occupied when we leave the house. Now we are able to leave the home without causing stress for us or our pets! You may not need a dog trainer all the time - but if you do - Carol is definitely recommended!

She was on time and very knowledgeable. Our dog was having a problem with going to the bathroom inside the house and she is an older dog. She gave us a lot of solutions and we tried them and it has worked almost instantly. Would recommend!

Kathy was great. I learned a lot about our dog and how to continue the training she taught me. I had experiences with other dog trainers and was unimpressed. Kathy knows her stuff and was a pleasure to work with.

Tony is very good with dogs. My dog sometimes responds to new people with aggression but she clicked with him right off the bat. We have worked together to calm some of her anxieties and I will be returning to Atazo in the future for any further training needs.

I can't say enough about Ashley!! She has been grooming my dogs for about 8 years and I honestly couldn't be happier!! She is always punctual, very caring and is a master groomer! Ashley truly loves what she does and is meticulous when grooming our Golden retriever. She is also an exceptional dog trainer for those of you looking for help in the manners department! 😉 Maggie enjoys her spa days! It is rare in this day and age to find someone who is honest, kind and trustworthy...Ashley is certainly one of those people. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great groomer!!

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!

We are very happy with how Stewart has worked with and understood both personalities of our crazy 3 yo lab, Toby and our skiddish 10 month old golden, Bentley. We had him train both while he dog sat for us for 10 days this summer. Immed when we returned, we could see a huge difference in both dogs. Stewart is very calm, but also is stern and consistent in his training so the dogs understand they are not in charge. Stewart also showed us what to do and explained why since we also had to stay consistent. We trust Stewart and have already recommended him to others.

I adopted a one year old Boston Terrier mix who is extremely energetic. I forgot what it was like to have a young dog. Needless to say, I hired Kelly and have been so impressed. First of all, she is extremely professional, enjoyable, no nonsense and always punctual. She has a common sense approach to dog training and the results have been great. I would recommend her to anyone, as she has only proven to provide more than I ever thought I could get.

I have know Dave for a long time. I watched him train his Chocolate lab Coco from a pup to a Champion. She is a remarkable dog! He helped me train my little pug dog who was quite stubborn. Dave helped Teddy and me find the patience that it took to learn how to make him a well behaved member of our family. Dave is very professional and respectful with me and my wife and of our home. He has had full access to my home when we were away on vacation and has lived up to the trust that we put in him.

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.
