First and Foremost, Kerri is the best, she’s very diligent & sincere in everything she does. We couldn’t of asked for a better person to train our dog! She listens to all of your concerns and goals that you have with your pup, and does her absolute professional best to meet those goals. It was hard leaving our puppo for so long but Kerri was so awesome by updating us on her progress telling us how’s she’s doing, and we got so excited watching her through Snapchat having a great time, and seeing her progress. My husband and I are proud human parents of a great new behaving pup, we’re spoiled to have found Kerri and we’re forever grateful! Thanks Kerri for educating us and being amazing.

      I hired Michelle to stop my dog from barking at my neighbors and to help reduce Shana's food aggression. Before long Shana was quiet and obedient, obeying 'quiet' when the neighbors got home. I am now able to take a treat from my dog's mouth without worry. A++ fantastic service

      I hired Katherine to help my elderly mother with her elderly dog (Samantha). Her dog is large and heavy and unable to get into my mother's vehicle and my mom cannot lift her and she doesn't do well on the ramp. Katherine was willing to transport Samantha to the vet for an appointment and also does in home grooming. She's very friendly and you can tell that she loves dogs. I would use her again and highly recommend her.

      Scott helped me understand why my two dogs were sometimes uncomfortable with each other. It boiled down to a battle of seeking attention and jealousy. When the older, more dominate female felt she was deprived of attention that the younger dog was getting she would lash out and cause a fight. Scott explained ways of doling out attention and keeping them separate during larger family gatherings. He retrained us to understand the complexities pack behavior and limit the possibility of conflict.

      Hello, you may call me Colette or your dog's new best friend! As mentioned, I am a certified dog trainer who graduated through the Animal Behavior College. I advocate positive training methods as I have found adverse methods to cause a strain on your relationship with your dog. Many studies have been done on the effects of pinch, choke, and electric collars and they all point to increased stress levels. I see dog training as a job for your dog. You wouldn't work for free or if you were being "bitten" or punished, right? Why should your dog, and, no, positive dog training doesn't mean that you have to rely on treats for the rest of your life, but wouldn't want to surprise your pal with their favorite snack every once in your while? After all, they are man's best friends. I offer in-home dog training in which I give you the tools to work with your dog on basic training ( recall, sit, stay, down, loose-leash and some fun tricks ) and obedience or behavior modification. If I can't help you for whatever reason, I will point you in the right direction. I would never tackle a problem I wasn't certain of as this could cause more harm than good. I can also assist you with digging, barking, house-training, leash-pulling and much more! Are you going out of town? I would be glad to watch your pooch while you are away. Your dog can look forward to trips to the dog park, a minimum of two walks a day and plenty of running and rumbling with dogs. They are allowed on my furniture unless you say otherwise (and I will be sure to clarify), or they are free to lay in the doggie fort. I also have kennels for those who prefer solitude, but cages are your dog's choice! Unless I need to step out (never more than two hours), your dog will not be kenneled and even then, my boyfriend or roommate are usually home and love to assist me. I am also proud to offer doggie daycare out of my home. I love offering this as I love dogs, but I don't necessarily want a whole pack all of the time. Your dog gets to socialize with my well-balanced pack, and my dogs get to have fun too. Best of all, they aren't left home alone all day or are in the over-crowded, stressful environment that dog daycare tend to offer. I make sure to set up a meet and greet beforehand to make sure it will be a good match. Finally, my boyfriend, Clay is a film and photography major graduating from SCAD and offers pet photography for your furry pal. He has been doing photography for about six years now and has a passion for dogs and capturing those special, quirky and fun moments.

      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.
