Darius is absolutely amazing. He is a true blessing for me and my husband. My husband is overseas right now in Afghanistan and we started having some problems with his Cane Corso, Thorin. When we thought we were just out of options Darius came into our life. He is helping our furbaby become a better and happy dog. I could not have asked for a better trainer for our dog. I highly recommend Darius for any problems that you're having with your dog. Truly thank you for everything you have done for us Darius!
I highly recommend using Francis for help with training your dog. He was knowledgable, patient, and great with my dog. We had 6 classes with him and he got my stubborn dog to do things I never thought she could do!!! I am so happy with the results. I have worked with many dog trainers in the past and he is one of my favorite!!!
Kristie was great. My dog was good aggressive after 1 lesson he was completely trained. She was very sweet and helpful
Dawn and K have been a pleasure to work with. My rescue was getting destructive and needed obedience training...they suggested their Off Leash program. I was skeptical at first but it has truly worked! The collar is a useful tool used correctly. I typically have it on 1 inside my home and maybe 6 outside. When I tested it, I couldn't feel it until a 17! This is what calmed my skepticism...and the fact it worked on him! He is a different dog. As an owner you have to keep up the training and give your dog the tools to succeed. But their foundation has been a blessing to my family.
Jan is a truly gifted trainer. My dog was abused as a puppy and he had difficulty being around anyone but family, refused to go for walks away from home and hated getting out of the car. Jan has helped me introduce positive reinforcement techniques to train my dog to see the world differently and gave me the confidence to work with my dog on several other problems we were having. She uses several techniques, including training the owner to react appropriately to the dog's behavior, obedience training to work on regularly with the dog as well as good tips to build a stronger bond with my dog so we can enjoy each others company and the company of newcomers in a safe manner. Having Jan as my trainer has been a great experience and I highly recommend her! She is devoted to helping my dog and I build a happy and safe home environment. With a persistent, positive outlook that any dog can be trained with a little love and some yummy treats, Jan has changed my dog's life and mine.
Ann Lewis, of Pups to Pooches, is one of the best dog trainers I've ever worked with. She is very knowledgeable about breed temperaments and what motivates individual animals. She is a great person to work with, especially if you have kids and a new dog or puppy because she will work with the entire family and teach kids how to interact with your new pup so there are no conflicts. I can't recommend Pups to Pooches highly enough. I plan to continue doing routine maintenance work to keep my dog challenged.
Cris is a great trainer. My Weim 80lb puppy (1 year 9 months) spent 3 weeks with Cris, and it returned a changed puppy. Obedient, less anxious, with better manners. Cris was aware that I was very emotional about the whole separation from my puppy, he also knew that I needed help urgently, we were having problems adjusting to living in an apartment, Cris was amazing and he picked up my dog that same weekend, I am so thankful to him. He sent pictures, videos and updates every day. He is very professional, compassionate and caring for both the dogs he's training and the dog's owners. Thank you Cris, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for us. Bono is a better dog thanks to you :)
Our family recently worked with Sonja to help us teach our new rescue dog (1.5 years old) some manners. He is the most friendliest dog but would jump on people, play bite things and people, and was extremely hard to take for walks. We have learned so much with Sonja's help and encouragement. Sonja knows her stuff, she is upfront, reliable and always makes herself available for questions. No doubt that Sonja is one of the Best dog trainers around. The whole experience was worth every single penny. Now when friends come over to our home, we hear comments like, "Oh! Your dog is so well behaved." Even during a dinner party, he stayed in his "place" when told to do so. We are so proud of our rescue's accomplishments. He is the best dog ever and thanks to Sonja, everyone can see that when they come into our home or when we are out for a walk.
I am most appreciative of Thumbtack getting Kate's profile to me. I have been very pleased to have found someone who is not only a good dog walker, but has so much knowledge about dogs, their training and behavior. I know that when Carly, my little dog, is with Kate I can have complete peace of mind. Since we really have no family except for our dogs and cats, I sure can't say this about too many people!
She was so sweet to my dog who is 17. He actually enjoyed his bath and cut.
Very knowledgeable about dogs and their training. Friendly lady who boards the dog inside with her family. My dog connected with her immediately. Training not totally complete yet; very pleased with our experience. Highly recommend this trainer.
Very professional and sent updates on the training with videos every couple of days. It was great to see the progress and the updates let us know that our dog was being well taken care of. They are a little slow to respond to their main phone line, but very quick with emails. That is really the only negative I can think of. Greg is a great trainer and I would recommend him and Off the Leash to all of my friends.
She is very nice and good to the dog. My dog gets better in some part. We learn some games and how to train. I think the dog really likes it too.
Awesome!!! It's very simple. Doron may be one of the best trainers I've come across. He doesn't only have great patience when it comes to training your puppy, he is also very thorough when it comes to informing you of the techniques and reasoning behind them. Will definitely suggest using his services or even just talking to him and getting a better understanding of your puppy.
I highly recommend Terri to anyone who is considering dog obedience and training. She is hands down one of the best dog trainers around. I would encourage anyone who has a puppy (or even an older dog) to consider Terri's Training for Dogs and People.
Damon Clemons I'd the most professional, caring and best dog trainer I have met. He does his job very well. He not only trains the dogs but the owners too. He makes sure that the owners are stable and balance as well as the dog he is training. He really focuses on the dogs needs. He doesn't do just one method with every dog, he works with the dog and then decides what will work best for that dog. If I ever needed another dog trained I would only bring them to Iron Will Dog Training. He is the best of the best!
I have used his services on 2 of my dogs, and was blown away by the improvement in my dogs behavior.
I've only had my first lesson and I am already seeing significant results. My male German Shepherd was very hard to handle even with a gentle leader. He would bark and lunge aggressively at other dogs and people while on our walks and would continuously bark at neighborhood walkers from my window. They explain everything and are very informative and know what they are doing. I've felt like I've been walking on thin ice because my dog has gotten in trouble with animal control with his aggression. Now I have the confidence to take him on walks and to public places. I don't even use the gentle leader now because the e-collar has him under control. I'm feeling very optimistic and look forward to the rest of my classes.
Good Dog is great -- you can tell Connie is a dog lover and that makes all the difference. Lots of wagging tails! Connie's honest and trustworthy -- I would recommend Good Dog highly.

I have been training dogs and their owners for 40 years. My methods work very well, and I have excellent references.
New To Thumbtack
I left a lucrative career to follow my passion -- working with animals and providing peace of mind to people and their pets. I have been a lifelong pet owner (dogs, cats, birds, fish, chickens, farm animals and more!) and have several years of experience pet sitting and working in animal rescue, fostering and rehoming. I'm studying to be a veterinary technologist. Are you a little nutty, maybe even considered a crazy person because you love your pets so much? That's okay because I feel the same way. I understand your need to feel secure about who visits and cares for your animals and to be updated as much as you wish on how they are doing while in someone else's care. I tailor my services to you and your pet. I am insured and bonded unlike those friends, neighbors and family members we've all been bugging over the years to help with our pets! I will care for any animal and am not afraid of anything; I love them all. Call me to discuss rates and services; you will find my rates to be very affordable. My goal is to make pet sitting accessible to as many people as possible who want to relax knowing their pets are in good hands.
