Yvonne is so amazing!! We hit it off immediately!! in one hour she had my 13 week puppy listening and calm. She's a great teacher for the pup and for ME!!! I have tiny Maltese. It's hard to not want to just cuddle them and spoil them! But with Yvonne's help I know I will have a very well behaved dog! I am so excited!! Yvonne is super sweet! I highly recommend her for your dog training!!

Amazing trainer! He is training my daughter’s service dog and what he has taught him in 2 weeks at 8 weeks old is absolutely amazing! He is training my daughter’s puppy to be her best friend and to save her life, for that we are forever grateful! He is so kind, organized, well educated in training, and the dogs absolutely love him. I would highly recommend him for training or boarding! All staff are amazing!

We first found Country Critters because of a lost dog they found that needed a home. We were so impressed by their caring for this little dog that we adopted him and started bringing all five of our dogs to them for grooming. They allowed us to stay there and watch how they treated our fur babies and they are the only place where I feel comfortable taking my babies. They smell so good and look great when they are groomed. All of my babies love going there and I would be completely comfortable boarding them if the need arises. They are the best!

Jeff has done a wonderful job with our two very different pups. Sweet shy Kinsey had gained tons of confidence through the training and over zealous Einstein has learned to dial it back a little and listen. I am very thankful we made this choice and will recommend them to everyone.

      We have taken both of our dogs to Daisy. She is wonderful and very knowledgeable. She will show you how to work with your dog and then work with you to master the skills. If you have questions, she is available to answer them for you. She not only cares for your dog but cares for both you and your dog.

      When I first got my dog, Theo, I was working full time and in grad school, so I really had very little time to dedicate to training my dog. My dog had been rescued from a rural area, where he had been living in the wild for some time, he was almost a year old, and he had a lot of energy! I was in desperate need of help with training! Highland Canine Atlanta worked with Theo for a few weekends and had him following basic obedience very quickly. They also taught me strategies to use with training Theo while he wasn't working directly with HCA. I was very pleased with the training and outcomes, and I will definitely use them again in the future if I have the need. Thanks Highland Canine Atlanta!

      About

      Pit bulls are a very intelligent breed of dog and must be trained with kindness and understanding. They're also very energetic and must be shown a great deal of patients when working with them. Never give up on your pit bull, sometimes it's easier to teach them after they lose some of their puppy energy!

      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.
