    Rayanna took excellent care of my 3 large breed dogs while petsitting for me. She sent pictures while I was away, and I could tell they fell in love with her immediately. I will recommend her to pet sit for all of my friends and family!

    She did a splended job of caring for three dogs of mine. The dogs she cared for was a German Shepard, a Golden Retriever, and a Cocker spaniel. She also tended to birds. For example, she cared for a parakeet and parots, etc. Thank you for your time and consideration.

        About

        I started taking care of pets by chance; I lived in a rural area where people dropped their dogs and and cats when they no longer wished to care for them. I became a rescue. At one time, I was caring for 12 dogs and 12 cats; when they passed away, I moved away. To fill my time after I was forced to retire, I started taking care of other people's babies when they were unable to. I take care of dogs and cats whenever you're going to be away. I feed, walk and play with them to keep their stress to a minimum while you're away. So, if you need someone who will care for your babies as close as you would yourself, I hope that you will allow me to care for them for you.

        About

        My wife, Dee Dee, and I have been operating our kennel since we retired in 2000. We love the animals and love helping people with their pet needs. Dee Dee retired after teaching for 32 years, and the same caring spirit she showered on those first graders comes out with each of her boarders. She allows me to train, groom and clean up after the pets. A lot of my training is with troubled pets that would probably be put to sleep otherwise. I correct the pets and train the owners. If we can help, call us.

        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.

        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.

        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?
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
