Maureen provided an immense amount of help for us and our pup who was afraid of going outside! By giving us a different perspective on the situation, her intuition and expertise helped solve the problem almost immediately. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog/puppy trainer. She was a pleasure to meet and work with!

Mike is a highly-skilled and trustworthy dog trainer. He is very easy to communicate with regarding scheduling and discussing the specific training objectives you would like fulfilled for your dog. Furthermore, it was easily discernible that my dog bonded and that he loves and takes good care of the dogs he works with. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Andy and his dog (owner) training! We noticed a difference in our puppy's behavior in the first week! Andy does a fantastic job of explaining the theory behind all the commands and works with you to make sure you know what to do at home to practice the skills. This was more than well worth the modest cost of the training!

We had Gregg come over to guide us and teach us as to what is involved in puppy training and behavior obedience. We had just brought a Boxer pup into our lives. He must have been about 16 weeks old at the time.. Well the experiece with Gregg was amazing.. He taught us more than I would have ever thought was needed. Today we have a beautiful 4 year old Boxer named Rocky who is such a pleasure to have as part of our family. I have and continue to recommend Gregg to anyone who adds a puppy to their lives as well as anyone who may have issues with their canine companion..

Rose has been a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and patience has exceeded my expectations. She is what a real dog trainer should be. I have spent a lot of money in the past with others with no end result and after just a short time I have already seen great results that continue even after she leaves our home. My Pitbull and Bull Dog love her and are growing to have much better manners. We are very grateful for the work she has put into the training and educating us to be better owners. Will recommend to friends and family without a doubt!

I was a first time dog owner. Brittany help me pick the perfect dog for my family. Initially, I had selected a different breed, but after getting to know my family, she constructively gave me reasons as to why a different breed would be better. She also went with us to purchase our dog and she was right on point. After putting our dog through her camp, our job was easy. She gave us very helpful information on training our puppy, specifically, how to react with others which was a vital element for us since our children were young and had their friends over a lot. We are so happy that Brittany was able to make this experience so wonderful for us. I refer all of my friends to her.

We adopted a very shy and undersocialized young dog from a local rescue. With training and group socialization led by Chelsea @ Canine Connection, we were able to transform into a confident and friendly little girl. We will always be grateful for the help she provided (and continues to provide) for us.

There aren't enough good things I could say about Angel and her work with our Baylee girl. Still in her "puppy" stage, Baylee came with a lot of energy, excitement, and curiosity. Angel was able to use all of that in a constructive way to help Baylee learn some boundaries. Thankfully Angel was very open with communication and sent updates frequently which was a big ease on our minds because we felt we could trust Angel, even not knowing a whole lot about her beforehand. We picked up our Vizsla yesterday and there is a huge difference in discipline. Obviously the first week back with us will be the most challenging, but if we do our part, there's no doubt in my mind that these new "tricks" will stick for good. We highly recommend Angel as a loving and hard working dog trainer.

With five dogs in our house, it took us a long time to decide on a mobile pet care company who could truly listen and mold themselves to our situation. Other companies would try to 'take charge' and tell us how they will only work. Bruce listened to what we wanted and needed and gave us just that. In the end, there are many passionate pet care companies but they aren't thorough. With Bruce, he got the job and kept us up with his truly amazing text messages about our animals and how excited he was to be working with us to care for our dogs. That's the key, "working with us", not so much for us. Bruce makes you feel like he's a friend, and after he was done with our sessions for the week, my wife and I spoke in great detail about that. In the end, you can leave your animal with anyone... I won't. I'm not an easy sell. I trust very few people with my dogs, I'm one of those dog people with no kids... (by choice). What matters in the end is TRUST. Period. You will get that with Bruce... and some really great, in-depth text updates! haha... believe it or not, when you're hundreds of miles away, it helps you sleep by putting a smile on your face, and an ease to your worry. Thanks Groovy Dogs!

My wife and I had worked with several trainers before coming across TBK9 Solutions. Rick takes training to a much more intrinsic level and really engages both the dog and handler. Any trainer can teach a dog to sport bite a sleeve, only the best can help a dog distinguish a treat vs a bite toy. If you are looking for true protection training, stop looking because you've found it.

    Robin is by far the most experience dog trainer I have ever met. She made the crate and potty training for my 9 weeks old puppy like a breeze. I followed Robin guideline religiously and after one week, my puppy was totally house broken and running to the door for potty. My puppy slept in her crate for 7 to 8 hours, walking well for the puppy on the leash in less than a week. . Robin has been there for us anytime we had question. She is so caring that I feel she is my best friend not just a trainer. If you want to enjoy your puppy without any extra stress, just call her. You won't regret it.

      Lane has a true understanding of dogs. I Met lane walking around downtown Dunedin when my GSD (German Shepherd dog) was about 4 months old(about a year ago). We spoke of a mutual love for the breed and how both of our grandparents were involved in K9 training (my grandfather was a k9 judge). Lane never pushed a service our a sales pitch on me he asked me some questions about my GSD. I let him know I was working with a trainer but at times my puppy seemed to rule us. He then told me he moved to the area and is training dogs here and if i ever needed help to call him (His expertise includes guard dogs, behaviors, advance training). During the past year we still were working with the original trainer who was very good as well. Something was missing though and we both felt that we taught my GSD everything we could but, he had a hurdle. You see my GSD would see other dogs and become over stimulated and hard to control and this started at about 7 months old ( He is a very intelligent and high drive GSD who's a sweetheart but stubborn.). He would jump on everybody not listen and tend to be just a brat. With dogs though he would bark aggressively and scare other people even though he just wanted to play he also seemed to be scared of them. So my trainer said let's take some time off and figure out something later. My wife and I talked about how he just needed to age and mellow but I felt this could not wait. I also mentioned how we met Lane and we should call him, but we were feeling a little discouraged and felt it may be better to wait. The next afternoon on the way to the beach I saw Lane walking two dogs and told my wife it's a sign let's just call him and try it. Lane gave us a free consultation that was over an hour. He then gave us his feedback and gave us pricing that was very competitive to any big box store but his is one on one. The difference with Lane though has been dramatic already, he truly has a passion and love for his career. After just a few weeks my GSD has improved with not only his old training but new training as well. My GSD is walking better on leash, reacting less and learning to be a companion and not pushing to be an alpha. Lanes knowledge of reading a dog has been honed since a young age and it shows. My GSD not only loves to go to training but now acts as if Lane is part of the family. My GSD is calmer and now looks for me to command him. We are not perfect by any means (its only been 4 weeks) but I truly believe with Carters k9s my GSD will be perfect and a dog that my grandfather would adore. Ask about the tree stump!

          I am a dog breeder. I love to raise the standards on the breed, and I am also working on quality, health, and temperament. I also do dog training.

          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.
