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.   

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.  .

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!!

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!
