I didn’t know what to expect with asking a dog trainer to help me out with my big boy, but Andrea exceeded any expectation I had. She gave valuable assessments and suggestions that have so far turned my dominant bullheaded Great Dane mix into a more well rounded, submissive pup. It’s not just about training the dog, but about re-training the people who care for the dog. Can’t wait to have her back to see our progress and to receive more guidance!!

When I found best behaved pups I was on the verge of giving up my dog and finding her a new home. But then I meet Karen with best behaved pups and by the end of the first constellation which is free I saw a light at the end of the tunnel for me and harlie. She is probably the best you will ever find! And her prices are far too competitive to even try to look for a different trainer! My dog harlie loves her to death and because of Karen my family is starting to come around to harlie as well! Highly recommend best behaved pups, trust me you will not regret it.

Adriane is great with my two boxer dogs. She seems to really care about them and knows how to read them well. She is great with walking them both together and even gives them a little extra play time if they still have energy. I would def recommend her.

My puppy did the 2 wk Board and Train. If you want to use positive training to train, Eva is the best at that. Even for smart, but stubborn, breeds, like my doberman puppy. I liked that I could watch the training and always text her with questions. Be prepared for continued training because its only a start, you have to keep going with it but your dog will get a great head start and make it easier for you to keep going with the training. I would totally recommend letting Eva at Wiggle Butt's Academy get your dog/puppy started with their training!

Fantastic dog trainer, Dalya has given me valuable advice with my own furry kid and working in a veterinary hospital i have recommended her to many clients and have had nothing but good feedback from them and have seen the results. Her positive reinforcement approach to training leads to a powerful bond of trust and cooperation. Thankyou Dalya!

Caleb Frisbee trained an autism service dog for my son. He helped us locate an amazing breeder to get a puppy from. He was always available to answer any questions I had. We have had the dog for 3 months and he is still there to offer support and answer questions. Our dog is well behaved and well trained. I could not ask for a better trained dog. The difference he has made in my son's life is amazing. I highly recommend Caleb Frisbee for any of your training needs.

I cannot say enough good things about All Dogs Elite! I began with personal training of my 3 dogs and was pleased immediately with Marcus and his effectiveness. Now I have 4 dogs and when we travel I always board them knowing they love going there and that they will not only have lots of playtime and socialization with other dogs but will learn even more while there!

If you know my Bailey, then you know she is as stubborn, destructive and temperamental as they come. Thankfully, Jen was able to quickly gain her trust and control, now she follows commands very well. After just one training session, Bailey is a whole new pup!! No more destructive behavior at home, she follows command and is now super well behaved!! Complete 360!! Jen was super thorough on training instructions and techniques, left training with no questions. The way she was able to immediately gain the trust of my stubborn pup was beyond belief! Within 15 mins Bailey was following commands like a seasoned dog! Can't wait to learn more with my Bailey and continue to grow!! Just AMAZING! I highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a great trainer!!

That's Dogtastic!

    I have known Maggie Marshall for about 5 months now and i was impressed the first day she walked into our shop. She knew exactly what to do in situations involving our staff and the dogs. She constantly is adding items that our staff can do and works on ways we can educate and entertain the dogs in our custody. This lady really knows dogs and training!

      I first met Wally and Edith in April of 2013 when I began attending basic obedience class with my Weimaraner puppy (Oliver). I have been attending class between one and two times a week since then. Oliver has been boarded with Wally and Edith on three occasions. The first time was in the summer of 2013 for approximately 50 days while I was studying law in France. The second and third times were after that for about 5 days each time. Wally and Edith are the only people I will trust Oliver with, aside from his vet. Wally and Edith have many students and EVERY student that I have met over the last year, has the upmost respect and admiration for them. Additionally, Oliver has made monumental strides in terms of obedience. As a result, Wally and Edith have helped me develop and strengthen my relationship with him. I encourage you to visit their website and visit one of their classes if you have any questions as to the quality of training that Wally and Edith provide.

      Lisa is truly amazing! She is not a one-size-fits-all trainer. She takes the time to get to know you, your dog and what you want to accomplish. Then she teaches you how to train your dog. Our rescue dog Rocky has made such significant progress because we have learned the right things to do.

      Alana Devers was the house and petsitter for me this summer. I have a difficult rescue dog, boxer pit mix, and a yorkie. She handled my dogs like the professional is expected. As a bonus, my house was nice and clean when I returned home! I highly recommend her.

      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.
