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.   

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.  .

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.

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.

Danielle was absolutely amazing with our dog. She is so patient and you can see how much she loves training these puppies. Very informative and a great “ hands on” trainer. We will certainly be using her more for our little guy.

Jane has a very different approach to dog training. My very high energy American Bulldog puppy needed to learn some manners, and I needed to learn how to get him to calm down. Jane helped me to understand what he would respond to, that he needed more physical and mental stimulation. She came with games that he loves and ideas that were different than other trainers, like him chasing me in the yard so he learns that he follows my lead, not the other way around. Jane does not only physical training, but interprets the dog and owner's personality to come up with a training plan that works for your specific circumstances. So far so good with Clyde becoming a more respectful and delightful member of the family. Thanks Jane!

We have been very pleased working with Jane of Counseling Families with Dogs. We love her strategy of making training fun for our dog and reinforcing positive behavior with toys and treats in addition to establishing several techniques for us to use to distract our pooch from unwanted behavior. She also introduced us to holistic supplements for easing our dog’s anxiety, resulting in a subtle but effective response. We are very happy to see our dog becoming the “good girl” she always wants to be! Thank you Jane! Brenda & Zane

Danielle has mad such a difference in my 2 puppies behavior in a very short time. They have learned their basic commands and are also training on and off leash etiquette. She is very patient and loving to my puppies. She takes her time to make sure that they are comfortable with her. I am also going to use her for my two adult dogs as well so I will have 4 we'll behaved dogs I could not do it without her

Jo has been an amazing trainer. She’s helped me figure out what I need to do to best help my dogs. Within minutes of them meeting her they loved her and listened. I’m looking forward to hiring her again to help me and my pups!

Kaitlyn was such an amazing trainer for my boy Fred. He was a 6 month old lab who was a wild child. When he came back from boarding with her he was a different dog.He was a big time leash puller and reacted to everything! Now we go on walks and to the dog beach and people compliment me all the time on how well behaved he is. She taught me how to work with him and I’m so grateful. I highly recommend her and can’t believe the change she’s made in our lives!

Danielle was SO awesome and made such a difference with our 3 pets! We brought a new puppy home and really needed her to help him get along with our senior dog and cat. Danielle had such a calming demeanor for our high-energy puppy and walked me through exactly how to manage his behavior when around them. He was on his best behavior for the session and now we can comfortably leave him around our other 2 pets without worrying. We will continue to use Danielle for more training sessions and pet sitting! She’s definitely a miracle worker :)
