Earl was a huge life saver for my husband and I! We have a 10 month old Golden retriever named Bear who was completely running the show! Earl showed us practical, effective ways to establish leadership in our home. He was extremely encouraging and never made of feel bad for anything we could've been doing differently with Bear. We were very impressed with his knowledge and experience with dog training. He had our dog relaxing on the floor for an extended period of time which was a first for Bear! I would highly recommend Earl for any kind of dog behavioral issues. We could tell he truly cared about us and Bear and wanted to see us be successful in our dog ownership!

These guys are great! They leave journal and write in it every day so I know how my pup did on walk/visit. Show up on time. Very responsive and okay with last minute changes. I also used their obedience training for my dog and we are improving every day!

Thanks Lea. This was a great experience for me. Great tips and techniques on how to train my dog as well as how to understand my dogs breed specific behavior. Lea is more than a dog trainer, she's a dog expert. I wanted someone to teach me how to best teach my dog and that's what I got. Very reasonable price for that kind of experience. Thanks again, Lea.

Zana was professional and thorough with her recommendations when it came to my dogs training. She took the time to make sure I was comfortable with beginning the training on my own. It is obvious Zana has a passion for what she does. I highly recommend Zana for your dog training needs!

Jeff at Show Me K9 Dog Training has helped my dog go from pulling on walks, lunging and barking at dogs, etc. to walking without pulling, looking up and listening for direction, and now knows come, sit, off, wait, heel, and place after only two lessons. Jeff is always willing to answer questions in between sessions at any time of day, gives great directions for me during the week, and very helpful feedback on our progress during lessons. Feels good to throw away the harness and relax on walks with my Buddha! I HIGHLY recommend Show Me K9 Dog Training!

Angela has a very high level of knowledge in both dog behavior and dog training. She was always on time for each appointment and was willing to stay a little late to make sure I understood each facet of the training. You can tell she loves dogs and loves helping people train their dog. She would always return my call when I had questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone serious about training their dog.

    I have a black lab mix name Missy and she is not the best behaved dog outside of our house. We have issues with her pulling while she walks and also with aggression towards other dogs. Missy has started to work with Mike. Missy immediately showed improvement by not pulling and letting me lead the walk. He has also given me tips for walking Missy which have worked great including having her sit before crossing the street and getting her to lay down when other dogs approach. Additionally Mike has brought Missy to interact with his dogs as a start and she has shown no aggression towards them. I am not saying everything is solved, but Missy is off to a great start thanks to Mike!!!

    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.
