Brian has been very helpful in training our two new Havanese puppies and training us how to better communicate and work with them on house training and basic commands. We signed on for the 6 visit package (starting 2 days after the pups came home from the breeder) and think it was money very well spent. Brian is very punctual and reliable about keeping his appointments. Would definitely recommend him.

Lara was great! I hired her to walk my five month old puppy and she was extremely responsive, sent me a picture and gave me a rundown of his ‘activity’ during the walk. Will definitely be hiring again :)

Very knowledgeable about unruly rescue young dog. Helpful advices. With construction going on in yard, they were able to board and train my puppy, who is so loveable but very energetic, and constant barking at construction activity. When I called for assistance, she came right away to pick up my puppy and board him so I could finish the construction in the yard without upsetting him.

We hired Leby to help us with our 8 month old Standard Poodle pup that was highly reactive to just about everything except other dogs. I had already done a lot of research into this matter; however Leby still was able to give me pointers on many matters. Leby is very knowledgeable in dog training, plus she is compassionate and actually wants to help in these situations. Many trainers seem to want only to help with basic training, not these hard cases. I easily give Leby 5 paws as she was great.

Jillian is wonderful with dogs. She has been training our sweet girl Molly for several months and I can tell from each visit how much she cares about the dogs overall well-being. We couldn't have selected a better training for our family's needs. Highly recommend Creating New Tails

Linda Greenfield is an exceptional dog trainer with a keen understanding of canine behavior and family dynamics. She is an amazing teacher and handler and I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning the art of dog training and how to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Dog training has never been so much fun and rewarding. Thanks Linda!

Keelah’s fit buddies is by far the best of the dog services in Miami. Not only are the prices are affordable but the commitment to each individual dog is unparalleled. Frequent photos and videos are communicated so I can stay involved in my dog’s daily activities. I trust this service to care for my dog and rely heavily on the flexibility this service provides. The adventures available to my dog through this service are endless.

Megan was extremely helpful with my crazy puppy. I have a 7 month old Shiba Inu, they are known to be a very stubborn breed. She taught him sit and lay down at the very first visit! This girl has a gift with dogs, I definitely recommend her as your future puppy/dog trainer.

Krystina has helped me immensely with my mobility and flexability training. Always showing me different techniques to decompress my joints and stay loose as well as build stabilization strength. The biggest area of in improvement was in my lower back which Ms. Dowdell taught me that its the surrounding muscles like my hips that cause that area to be tight. Just by doing the exercises and stretching techniques a lot of the pressure on my lower back has been relieved and with being a martial artist it really makes a difference!

Lisa was very impressive not only by her effective training strategies, but also in her efficiency. My 3yr old dog learned several skills (and maintained them!) in just one session with all positive reinforcement techniques. We had tried a cheaper group dog training from a big company before for 6 weeks and didn't get close to the same results we got working with Lisa (plus, it was far less stressful for my dog!) Absolutely would recommend her services!

      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?
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
