Brian was great with our two puppies, Ziva and Zoe. His patience with two new puppies was amazing. He worked with them on several different behaviors. His training method works with clickers and rewards for desired behaviors. Both dogs picked up on his training quickly and effectively.He is always available by phone to answer any questions we might have. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, effective dog trainer.

Cliff was great! He trained our dogs but also trained us. They were so many things that we were doing wrong that he corrected. Our dogs are doing so much better. I would recommend Cliff to anyone looking for an expert dog trainer.

Franco is truly amazing with his God-given talent. He takes the time to explain what makes a dog tick. Realistically, his title should not be dog trainer but people trainer. We have learned so much from him in regards to how a dog thinks and as a result we have a very well behaved dog.

Jane, on her first visit, has changed our life. She is a great gift for our family. Her training with animals as well as family counseling is an amazing and effective catalyst for positive change. I highly recommend this affordable, skilled, talented, committed animal trainer. Our dog Harry is already happier, as our we.

As the mom of two border collies, I want to make certain my kids are in the best of care. I have an older dog (13) and a rambunctious puppy (9 months). Danielle is responsible, kind, flexible, understands neurotic dog moms and based on the photos I receive from the dog park - fun! A five paw rating from our family!

Brianna did an initial evaluation of our 5 month old corgi, Obi. She is very knowledgeable and observant. She asked a lot of questions and really took her time with listening to our concerns and what we ultimately are looking for. She explained that a “one size fits all” approach to dog training doesn’t work.....it’s very individualistic. We look forward to working with her in the future!

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!

Jillian is the BEST service dog trainer out there. She keeps her dogs groomed beautifully and maintained. All of the dogs she have trained are absolutely brilliant. Also, she takes the time to put the dogs on a raw diet which is AWESOME. I recommend to anyone if you want your dog to become to BEST service dog and if you want them to be in the BEST care.

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.

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!

Steven just left and I am really impressed. He is obviously very passionate about what he does and certainly understands my dog. He got to understand him very quickly and did lots of work from the moment he arrived. I have a lot to learn and look forward to working with him.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
