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!!!

Wow is the first thing I want to say. Also, before being recommended to Karisha and Dawn from a friend I had no relationship to them. I work from home so my Zegen and I are very close. Let's just say he's a little anxious when I leave him for a while. I noticed firsthand the difference when picking him up from Off Leash than from picking him up from friends/boarders. The real test is when I am bringing him to be dropped off there. You know dogs know way ahead of time where they are going and Zegen is not his usual uncomfortable self. We get there, I open the car door and he jumps out! Does not try to get back in the car!! It's hard to put in words how comfortable that is to me when driving away. I think it is safe to say that I highly recommend Off Leash Dog Training to anyone. Not sure if this is allowed or if it will be removed from this post but if you are overly concerned about your baby as I am about mine please feel free to call me for any further questions: 404.697.4317 Brad Williams

I brought my 10 month old Chorkie in for training . She was aggressive with other dogs and people outside of the family. Yvonne created a course for us and gave me guidelines and advice for changing our behavior to help us be a better unit. We have to grow, learn and change together . After 3 weeks Fawn was able to enter a group class and we were able to flourish there. After completing the group training Fawn can be around other dogs, other people, and follow basic commands. She just passed her AKC Star Puppy certification and I am so proud of how far we've come. Thank you so much Yvonne for all of your help, we wouldn't be here without you!

Keith contacted me about dog training. We had a first meeting that was supposed to last 30 minutes but ended up lasting almost 2 hours. He answered all of my concerns that I had about training and leaving my dog with a stranger. I got daily updates with pictures and videos of how my dog was progressing. I could not be happier with my decision to hire Keith and S-K9 Solutions for my dog training.

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.

If I could give more stars, I would! Jerome is absolutely an amazing trainer! He has done so much for us and our 5 month old French Bulldog, Murphy. Jerome is very passionate and truly cares for his trainees. Me and my husband also learned so much from Jerome on how to approach training Murphy, I had know idea what I was doing at the beginning, but now I know the proper technique to make training sessions productive for Murphy. We could not be more happy with the progress Murphy made during his 6 week smart puppy training! If you are looking for someone who can truly connect with your fur-baby, then contact Jerome!! He is very thorough during the actual training session and then follows up with very detailed information (via email) on what your training lesson consisted of and instructions on how to continue training on your own until your next scheduled session with him. One of my main "wants" when looking for a trainer was 1 on 1 attention. Jerome takes this to a new level. He comes directly to your house and works non-stop for 1.5 hours with you and your fur-baby only! You will not find a better person to train your pet!

Individual dog training. Specifically, for jumping on house guests, leash pulling, and minor behavior issues. Shaun was responsive and helpful. He addressed all of our issues in turn and really helped us get our dog on the right track. I'd highly recommend him to anyone with pet behavior problems, big or small. He knew how to approach them all. Thanks Shaun!!!

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.

My 5 month old puppy and I both love working with Kris at Family Dog Training! I went to her looking for basic obedience training, but was thrilled to learn that she is also certified in several areas of dog fitness and agility training! She uses her knowledge to add fun, and safe, exercises which incorporate the basic obedience skills we are learning. This is a great way to have fun with your dog or puppy, and create a stronger bond with your pet!!

Heidi is an amazing dog trainer! She has been helping me and my boyfriend with our pit mix Nash. Since our training has started Nash has learned his indoor boundaries as well as mastered walking on the leash. He has also done well at the dog park socializing with all the dogs. Our ultimate goal is to off leash train and we are on our way!!

About

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.

Do you need a better dog? I do a six-week session, and I train basic obedience. I can do other things like house training and certain behavior issues (not all and I will tell you if I can fix it or not). I teach sit, stay, down, come, and heel in the obedience training. This is done for an hour, once a week within the six-week period.

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.
