Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does dog training typically cost?

The average cost of dog training ranges from $60 to $155 per hour. But, your dog’s training might cost more or less depending on a number of different factors. For example, you might pay less if you schedule group classes instead of private instruction. The type of training (aggressive behavior, basic obedience, off-leash training, etc.) could have different prices as well.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a dog trainer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Utilize as many digital means as necessary when setting up appointments or consultations with dog trainers near you during the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, the best way to begin is by conducting a search for dog trainers online. Compare services side by side, and ask each dog trainer you contact if it’s possible to schedule a consultation or appointment completely virtually. During this time, you should also discuss strategies for completing training and payments through digital means.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a dog trainer when social distancing?

Current CDC guidelines state, “Do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household.” It also explains that more studies are needed to understand if and how animals could be affected by the virus that causes COVID-19 and how this might affect human health.

If you’re uncomfortable with hiring a dog trainer right now, you can reach out to dog trainers in your area to see if they will let you book an appointment in the future when social distancing guidelines are lifted. Or, ask if they offer virtual or remote services.

If you do decide to hire a pro to train your dog in person, limit any physical contact with the trainer. Stay 6 feet apart, sanitize items and surfaces, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.   

Is dog training worth the money?

Dog training can be a highly rewarding investment for most dog owners. With dog training, you can establish a better, healthier relationship with your dog, who will learn to understand your commands and wishes. Your frustration levels may decrease, and you might be able to resume activities you’ve put off, such as having people over or taking your dog to public places (though, this is hard to guarantee because each dog is unique). 

Just remember that no amount of dog training will pay off if you don’t practice and follow the directions the dog trainer gives you. Consistency is the most important factor.

Is it ever too late to start training a dog?

It’s never too late to train your dog — “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is a myth. Whether you adopt an older dog from the shelter or simply want to have a better relationship with your elderly dog, hiring a dog trainer can be a good investment.

What do professional dog trainers do?

Dog trainers can perform a range of activities, ranging from training law enforcement dogs to working with therapy dogs or search-and-rescue dogs. However, most people hire dog trainers for obedience training. This is largely a process of training the human — much of how a dog interprets our behaviors, commands, tone and body language is counterintuitive at first. The trainer will typically come to your home to observe your relationship with your dog, teach you how to train a command and give you guidance for reinforcing it.

Can I use digital payments to pay for dog training?

Many professional dog trainers accept digital payments instead of cash or check. One effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is that it is encouraging companies and services to onboard digital platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo and Square Cash as a means of curbing virus transmission risk.

When you contact dog trainers near you, ask if they’ll accept digital payments. This information is also typically available on their online profiles.

Do dog trainers offer remote or virtual services?

Although dog training is traditionally performed in person, the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused some professional dog trainers to move to remote training and virtual services. You can contact dog trainers near you to ask about the possibility of remote or virtual services. Also, ask whether all aspects of the process can be digital, including payment.

How can I find out if a dog trainer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines on essential services are constantly being updated by local and federal government agencies. To see which services qualify as essential COVID-19 service providers, start with your city or state’s government website.

A reliable list of federal guidelines is available on CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.  .

Does a dog trainer need to enter my home?

Depending on the type of dog training you need, a dog trainer may need to enter your home. Many behaviors that need to be corrected are associated with the dog being in the house. However, some types of training can take place virtually or even outside while observing safe social distancing practices.

Start by asking dog trainers in your area if they’ll perform a video consultation instead of an in-person one, and ask if they need to enter your home.

Nathanial Silver is an excellent dog trainer. After being locked down we needed help with socializing our dog. Our dog had very little experience with dogs and people. After taking him to dog Boot Camp he has learned a great deal in such a short time. Nathaniel has been very patient explaining commands and how we continue this training with our dog at home. I’m so thankful to have found such a great trainer and highly recommend Nathaniel.

My dog Coby really changed for the better. No more whining, no more biting and nipping. It really is better to have your dog trained by professional people like Aninanny.

Our dog is doing much better even with only 2 training sessions! I am able to walk her without her running after other dogs! We will have a few more training sessions as needed! I am very happy with the results so far. Highly recommend!!

Amazing company and Nathaniel i cannot put into words how incredibly knowledgeable and talented Nathaniel is when it comes to dogs / training..... We have an 18-month old pit bull that weighs 110lbs. Although he is a lover, he has had some behavioral issues from time to time. After he bit our daughter’s friend in the arm, my wife was insisted I turn him in to the humane society, which would surely lead to him being put down. I connected with Silver Dog Training and spoke to Nathaniel. I shared what had occurred and Nathaniel believed he could train/rehab our dog. He offered to come over that evening and start. After speaking to us over the phone, my wife was not on board, so we declined. An hour later Nathaniel called me back and asked if he could come over as he truly believed he could help and loves dogs so much he did not want to see a dog that could be saved end up being euthanized. Although he was 50 minutes away, he insisted we allow him to come and do so at no charge. Nathaniel arrived and after speaking with us a few minutes came inside and immediately began working with our pit bull. We were shocked as within literally a minute, the dog’s behavior changed. As Nathaniel worked with him, he also took time to explain exactly what he was doing, why it was important and also the underlying reasons dogs behave certain ways. We then walked out front as Nathaniel continued to work with our dog and in the process began to involve me. What he accomplished over approximately an hour and thirty minutes was nothing less than astounding. By way of example, I had never been able to get my pit to sit for more than a few seconds let alone stay. Out front, Nathaniel had him sitting while he walked circles around him and backed away approx 20 feet. Then taught me to do the same. Nathaniel’s kind gesture and time spent has probably saved our pit’s life as we saw first hand how good of a dog he is, just lacked some basic training and some changes in the way we interact with him. He is now attending the dog boot camp and we are excited to see the results of two weeks of training vs 90-minutes. Thank you Nathaniel. I have never seen a trainer as talented and competent as you.

We had Pack Academy board & train our 7 month old Doberman puppy Ruby the last couple of months. We had her start on the puppy & basic training programs and just got her back this week after completing her advance obedience training. Our puppy came back like a brand new dog. She learned all the basic commands and came back with proper manners. At 9 months old she is not a wild puppy anymore and a pleasure to be around with. There training team is vary caring, and responsive to request. Thank you all at Pack Academy for caring and training Ruby to her full potential. Luis & Raquel

Wendy was fantastic to work with. Even before starting on training our Misty she gave us a list of what we needed and how the plan was going to go. From that point on we had productive lessons (with short homework based on our session) in which she was excellent with how she explained and began to train our dog. Misty in just the few lessons we had is now no longer having accidents in the house and is responding to our commands. While we aren't finished yet and had to take a break, we'll be sure to reach back out to Wendy when the time comes to begin our new phase of training. I would highly recommend her to anyone that loves their dog like a member of the family!!

We were very excited. After long deliberation, we decided to bring home a puppy. Little did we know that our nice, tranquil home was about to be turned upside down by our new little four-legged terror. As cute as she was, we suspect that she may have been possessed. We tried to train her on our own but that led to frustration and failure. It didn’t take long to realize that we needed professional help. We interviewed several training facilities but the search stopped when Dillon from Full Potential K-9, Inc. walked through our door. The first thing he did was snap a lead on our unholy terror. While telling us about his program, he managed to begin the training process, within three minutes of his arrival. He reviewed our dog and we discussed the best means of turning her into a pleasant pet. Interestingly, after he left, our dog was much better behaved. There had clearly been a quantum shift in her behavior after a very short period of working with Dillon. Later that evening, Dillon returned to pick up our monster. The paperwork was quick and easy and he took care of all of our veterinary issues. During the training, we received astonishing videos of our dog actually behaving herself and following a myriad of commands. Beyond training our dog, we were trained as well. We have determined that our dog is now much better behaved, and likely smarter, than our ten year old boy. Full Potential K-9, Inc. did wonders for our family. Considering what they were able to do with the disaster we foisted upon them, I suspect that they could teach a normal dog to read Tolstoy. We were regularly impressed by their efforts and if you have brought, or are contemplating bringing, a new four-legged ball of joy into your family, we wholeheartedly suggest calling Full Potential K-9, Inc.

Brian was terrific. Alfie, our 2 year old Boston terrier, is a different dog than he was a few months ago. We purchased a 6 week training package but then chose to spread it out to give us time between sessions to practice what we were learning. Brian obviously has a great love for dogs, and Alfie looked forward to the sessions (and the treats). He is still a very energetic dog, but is much more responsive to our commands now. Visitors to our home will no longer have to deal with being jumped on when they walk in the door, and walks around the neighborhood are more enjoyable... with less leash pulling and reactivity to passersby. Most importantly... it’s not just the specific things we learned, but the fact that we have a better handle on how dogs learn so that we feel better equipped to teach Alfie other new things. Thanks, Brian!

I don't know where to begin. First off let's just say my dog (Tinker) is my child, and has never been away from me for more than 24 hours. She was in K9 pack board and train program for about 6 weeks. They dealt with countless texts and me asking for pictures and videos of Tinker and they always followed through. My main concerns with Tinker was her confidence, walking on a leash and her aggression at times. They assured me that Tinker was not aggressive at all but lacked confidence. Tinker was the type that when it came for walks on a leash you better be ready to be dragged and pulled. Now, Tinker walks next to me with no tension what so ever in her leash. She listens to commands and even stays in place. She has confidence and is a better dog, of course at the end of the day she is an animal and will have good days and bad days but so far the good days out weigh the bad. Both Or and Bar took Tinker into their home and heart and I truly will be forever grateful. As I told Or they are family to me now as they took care of Tinker as she was part of their family. Even now I still text Or and ask questions, send videos and pictures. The bond he created with Tinker was amazing. I could see that he cared and loved her almost as much as I do. I am so happy that I chose K9 pack to take care of Tinker and help me through these times. K9 pack is the training to choose by far.
