If you are looking for an amazing dog trainer that specializes in clicker training, you should definitely consider Brian Sugerman. He puts in his personal time and attention into your dog. He is an amazing trainer and has a really special talent for bonding with your dog . Im so grateful for Brian's help when we needed him . We used Brian for private lessons to teach our 4 month old puppy some commands and helped us with feeding and bathroom schedule. He is very professional , intelligent and gave me great insight . I would highly recommend Brian to train your dog using the clicker method. -Karen

Cliff truly changed my life because now my dog does not pull on the leash and does not jump at guests when they come over. It has only been 2 days since our first session and I have seen a dramatic change in my lab. I highly recommend him! He definitely is worth the money! Great dog trainer!!!

I had an incredible experience and would highly recommend this Canine Coach to anyone who is looking to learn the ins and outs of training your puppy/dog, or how to help strengthen the bond between your pet and yourself. I will definitely be coming back once it is time to teach my puppy how to leash train and he's finished his last round of vaccinations, and I'm more than satisfied with the empathy I felt from my Canine Coach and his understanding of the overall relationship I wanted to develop with my pup! I have nothing but praise! Just look how happy my puppy was after his first session! =] He wen't straight for his toy and not straight for my couch!

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.

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!

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.

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.

We have had several dog trainers over the years but never have we had such a wonderful experience as we had with Leby. She is so professional, caring and gentle. Her approach to training is all done using positive reinforcement. We had some in-home training and because of our crazy schedule, decided to have Leby keep him for 3 weeks of training. She always kept in touch to let us know how Siddie was doing and sent several photographs and videos. I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience we had and what a special person Leby is. If you are looking for a trainer- look no further!

This trainer is the best. We went through his 5 week basic training class with our 9 month old Rottweiler and the results were amazing. He is patient, fun, informative and very knowledgeable about all aspects of dog training and dog health. This is a must is you just purchased a new puppy or have rescued a new dog. If you feel your dog needs some training, this is the man to come to. You will not regret it.

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.

We have a 5 month old Goldendoodle that is a bundle of energy. Needed help with housebreaking, obedience, crating and leash walking. Marti assessed our dogs behavior and was confident she could work with her. We opted to send our dog with Marti for a 10 day boot camp and board her at her home. When our dog Harley came home Marti discussed all facets of her training and took the time to teach us hand commands and the proper cue technique to continue reinforcing what she has learned. Harley is 10 times more obedient, is a pleasure to walk, sits, stays and lays down on command. I highly recommend Marti for her knowledge and training skills. If you want a dog that you can be proud of give Marti a try you'll be glad you did!

About

A trained dog is a loved dog. A trained dog is less likely to show fearful or stress-related behaviors that can lead to even more undesirable behaviors like aggression. I do positive reinforcement-based dog training to provide the best solutions for you and your dog. I offer in-home private lessons for you and your dog personalized to suit your dog's training level and your busy schedule. Another very effective and convenient option is day training where your dog and I train while you are away. A walk is included in this training option. I provide customized, effective training solutions for you and you pet. If you want to give your dog the best of everything, that should include professional training with someone with over eleven years of experience.

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.
