Bottom line: This guy knows what he's talking about and knows what he's doing. I thought my Walker Coon Hound was train- proof. Brian proved me wrong- my dog is getting more and more obedient after every session and he loves it. Clickr training with Brian works. I felt a wave of relief after the first session. Overall great 100 percent positive experience. Highly recommend.

I was looking for a trainer that didn't just teach commands but worked with behavioral issues as well and Cliff provided that. He also wasn't just training my dog but myself included and it was a great learning experience.

Wendy is a peach! My "rescued dog" Hunter, a dachshund, is very skitish with people and other dogs, but from the moment Wendy walked into our home, Hunter received her as a friend! That in itself says a lot. After 6 weeks, we have now taken him, with Wendy's guidance, to the local dog park for the first time since we have had him, and maybe the first time in his life, and contrary to my worst fears, he was very well behaved, which I can only credit to Wendy's affectionate and patient dog (and people) training. I would highly recommend Puppy Dog Luv/Wendy Heller for training!

Rosie has been training our goldendoodle (Derby) off an and on for a few months and has done a great job. He responds very well to the training and looks forward to her visits (and treats). I recommend Rosie for those looking for 1on1 training for their puppy.

Jane is awesome ! She traveled from Palm Beach Gardens to me in Coral Springs. She gave up two hours on a Sunday to help with my two pitties who are 16 months old and needed some training! I already see results! I would not hesitate to recommend Jane to anyone who needs help with their four-legged child. Jane was early, professional, soft spoken and knew what she was doing. I love Jane!

Puppy Training for my 14 week old Siberian Husky was simple and easy with Carol. Her laid back, loving personality worked well with our home. It amazed me how fast she trained my puppy and the simple things she taught me that trained ME to be a better pet owner. I HIGHLY recommend Carol Harris!

Dogs and training are in Erinn's DNA and you will see that when you and your dog meet her. Our puppy Vizsla was more than we could handle. A bundle of well intentioned energy that needed some software rewrites. An athlete that needed coaching badly. Erinn is that coach. Our dog is hard wired to hunt and pursue anything that moves (lizards, leaves, balls) but gets in the zone. Erinn now helps us control the zone and all behavior. We didn't want to train that away, just channel it. Also other indoor vs outdoor behavior including proper house breaking. All the usual commands, plus where and how to sit, come, down, up, fetch. Drop it....all of the must have commands into the head of our stubborn puppy! It's clear Erinn loves doing this. The puppy also loves Erinn. Thats not to say she isn't serious, she is. But the manner is terrific as you'll see. She sends us videos of the progress which helps when you board your pup and miss her. She works with the owners to train them too if needed. Just terrific.

Joyce did an amazing job with our two dogs, Dicey & Tipper. Before we sent them to her, walking them was nearly impossible. Joyce worked her magic and got them to walk side by side with no leash-pulling. She is an extremely knowledgeable dog trainer and is very patient. Our dogs love her! The best is that she sends daily pictures and updates. We know that our dogs are well cared for and loved when they go to Joyce. I highly recommend her for both dog-sitting and dog-training. Thank you Joyce!

Yes Dog Training has been a God-send. Stuart is great with our dog, Molly, and knew just how to address some dominant behaviors we wanted to correct. He also came very last minute to take care of her when we went out of town for a couple of days. Molly loves him and we love that he is trustworthy and responsible.

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!

I adopted a one year old Boston Terrier mix who is extremely energetic. I forgot what it was like to have a young dog. Needless to say, I hired Kelly and have been so impressed. First of all, she is extremely professional, enjoyable, no nonsense and always punctual. She has a common sense approach to dog training and the results have been great. I would recommend her to anyone, as she has only proven to provide more than I ever thought I could get.

Our experience with Cindy was amazing. We learned not only how to train our dog but how to train ourselves!! So many things we had no idea we were doing were actually interferring with our dog training! Our Moe went from having no idea how to follow any commands to being able to follow all the basic and not so basic commands. We always get comments while on walks as to how well behaved he is!! We have all come a long way thanks to Cindy at KK's K9. We highly reccomend this company ..... kathy & erwin (and moe!)

A++++++++. Gari has become an invaluable asset to my family. I've worked with her for over 4 years while I've adopted two resecue puppies. We started out with puppy training basics (sit, stay, lay down, drop it, leave it commands etc.). As my dogs grew and developed their own personalities, she worked with us on behaviorial issues like digging, separation anxiety, chewing up carpets, howling. Our dogs are like our children and just like our real children need guidance and boundaries, so do our dogs. Gari has helped us create a happy and loving home for my entire family; children and dogs. She is 100% worth every penny but you have to be willing to truly work with your dog and put the time in. She's a gem.

        About

        I am a certified dog trainer with 13 years of experience. I do private in-home training. I use only positive training methods. I help owners to better understand their dogs, and how to train with their dogs to make that life-long bond that creates friendships that last a lifetime. I am also a mentor trainer along with being a C.G.C. evaluator for the American Kennel Club. I work with local rescues, and am on the board of directors for one of the rescues. I also volunteer at local shelters along with doing fundraiser work in my local areas. I attend several seminars a year to help keep up on the newer types of training and information that does come available to help me to continue with using my training methods. My clients love to see the turnaround in their homes as the training progresses over the 6 weeks that we spend together.

        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.
