Cliff is an exceptional trainer. We had a pretty severe case of aggression with our dog. Our dog is a 5 year old shepherd lab mix and 100 pounds so dealing with the aggression was pretty hard so we hired Cliff. We were a little nervous in the beginning because we are very protective of our "baby." Cliff showed great professionalism and is very skilled and trained trainer. We now trust Cliff 110% with our dog and he has taught us so much!!! Our dogs behavior has improved so much and even friends and family have noticed and commented. His past behaviors included biting, aggression towards other dogs on walks, not listening to us and overall stubbornness and if he didn't want to do it he wasn't going to. We still have things to learn and more training to do but our dog has definitely had a major improvement and continues to learn from Cliff. If you are looking for a trainer for your dog Cliff is your guy!

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 is an excellent dog trainer, although I believe she helped me more than my crazy wheatie. I was really impressed with how much knowledge she has and patience. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. She showed me some tools I can use to use while training my puppy. You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

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!

We can't thank Carol enough for helping us with our dog Sandy! We were at our wits end until she came to our home and showed us ways to calm her isolation anxiety and keep her mind occupied when we leave the house. Now we are able to leave the home without causing stress for us or our pets! You may not need a dog trainer all the time - but if you do - Carol is definitely recommended!

Kathy was great. I learned a lot about our dog and how to continue the training she taught me. I had experiences with other dog trainers and was unimpressed. Kathy knows her stuff and was a pleasure to work with.

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.

If you are looking for the best professional pet care provider in Broward and Dade Counties and surrounding areas for your precious ones…then the Pet Au Pair, LLC is whom you should trust your pets too. We have been using the Pet Au Pair, LLC for over a year now. We are delighted and our rescue Chihuahua Tex, (“Lil Man” to Auntie Gail) and our Finches (Dumbledore and Harry Potter) are happy clients! Gail comes to our home when we travel professionally, vacation, or just can’t get home in time to feed or walk them daily. She has a PetScort service too, that is so convenient when our little ones need to go to the vet or groomer. It saves us time from our busy schedules. Gail is dependable, trustworthy, loving, and gives us peace of mind knowing that our babies are in very capable hands in our home or out on the road when we are away. She leaves us notes; text messages with cute photos letting us know how our babies did each day. She is always a positive caring professional and we noticed the difference in our dog Tex! He has really come out of his shell, a happy boy when we get home. He is crazy about Gail. We highly recommend the Pet Au Pair if you are looking for a dog walker or pet sitter!

Having had some bad experiences with Pet Sitters in the past, I am really happy that I found Nicole to take care of my dog, Sheba. First of all, Nicole takes in just two or three dogs at a time, so I can be sure that Sheba gets the attention she deserves. Second, Nicole doesn’t just watch Sheba, she interacts with Sheba, so Sheba gets some training and affection when I’m not there. Also, Nicole’s dog Luna has becomes Sheba’s BFF. They can play for hours! I really appreciate the fact that Nicole sends me pictures of Sheba when she is there, so I know everything is all right. Finally, the only crate in the house is Luna’s, so I know that Sheba won’t be put in a crate and forgotten as soon as I leave. I do not crate Sheba, and that’s fine with Nicole. Leaving your dog with someone else can be very stressful, but I am very comfortable leaving Sheba with Nicole.

Marti is an excellent trainer, both for the owner and the dog, or dogs in my case. The improvement after the initial visit is beyond my expectation. She came prepared with collars and harnesses and tried different options to figure out which would be most effective for both the dogs and the owners. We plan on scheduling another lesson, after we continue to work with the dogs on our own for a little while. You can tell marti truly cares about your pet and the well being of both you and your dog. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a dog/owner trainer.

Kaitlyn with Canine Concepts is the best! We brought our 7 month old black lab, Molly, to her looking for obedience training. Kaitlyn responded to our request within minutes and after our initial text on a Sat, meeting on Sun, we dropped off Molly for training on Monday. The process was super quick and we knew immediately she was the trainer for us. She is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and great with our dog. She had Molly for 3 weeks and sent us video updates all the time. She treated Molly like one of her own. When we got Molly back she went over everything we needed to do to continue the training at home, and even came to our house for another training session after we were home for a couple weeks. Molly is a much better, and obedient dog now. She will sit, stay, down, here, place, kennel, drop it, leave it, etc. She walks on a leash without pulling, and doesn't go crazy when people and dogs walk by. She also trained Molly with an e-collar so we can have her off leash at times. We are extremely happy with Molly's progress. Kaitlyn is also available anytime for us to ask her questions, and we also board Molly with Kaitlyn anytime we are away.

    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.
