They are wonderful! My dog has never liked being boarded, but with A Paw Above, it's like summer camp for her. She loves it! Gretchen is so easy to work with and so accommodating. I can't imagine having anyone else care for my dog.

I have a small 9 year old dog and had the pleasure of having Brian Sugerman help me understand her behavior as she has gotten older. Brian is soothing, gentle and very professional. We started in March of 2015 and had Brian work with our baby for six weeks. Brian perfomed training at our home and was prompt and always very pleasant.I was amazed at the technique that he used and the actual results we saw in our dog. Brian took the time to explain what clicker training is and how effective and successful it has been. Our baby had an immediate response to Brian and he was able to correct the issues that concerned us. We highly recommend Brian for your dog training.

Lara was great with our mini Aussie. She showed up in the time frame that I requested and always spent the full time with our dog. She would walk her as well as play with her which is exactly what we wanted. I would totally recommend her!

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!

Mona is a natural dog person who has added to her great instincts with lots of education about dogs and dog behavior. She immediately connected with my dog and was patient and also a good leader, and I could tell my pup was more confident and comfortable around her. I would trust Mona with my animals and I would recommend that others trust her, too. Your animals are in good hands with Mona!

We have known Yayquel for over 10 years. She had a special relationship with both of our older dogs, who boarded regularly where she worked. When our dog was 17, we knew she was not going to be able to board with a good experience, and we had JJ come to our home. The love, caring consideration and respect she gave to our "old dog" was amazing. We sent our Tessa to the Rainbow Bridge, and now she cares for our 12 year old rescue Border Collie. JJ knows dogs, and families and the concerns each of us may have while travelling. She will make your vacation or business or personal trip much less stressful and worry-free. Use her!!

I highly recommend working with Megan. Her compassion for dogs and upbeat nature made the training itself engaging and enjoyable for my one year old labradoodle! She always gave 110% to me and my dog, she is reliable, organized and most of all knowledgeable in the training and behavior of dogs.

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!

    About

    I will come to you and babysit your beloved family member while you're at work, at school, or even a night out.

    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.

      I know she's starting late in life - she's a rescue. She has a high prey drive/working drive very ball driven. She just passed level 1 obedience with flying colors. She needs to be socialized more but all in all she is a great field lab that is very mature for only being a year old. I want to do tracking and protection work with her and go through all levels of obedience classes as well.
