We will NEVER use another dog groomer again! While the price can be considered a little high, it is not higher than another mobile groomers, and completely worth it. We have a senior yorkie that we were terrified to take to the groomers and they worked with him and us so well that everything worked out great. Not only is customer service and communication amazing, the work the did was exactly what we wanted going into the summer. They did amazing on our Pomeranian also 😆 🐕

Spectrum Dog Training and in home boarding is an excellent place for training and boarding. As a family with 5 dogs, we depend on Andrew's guidance for all our training. Our dogs participate in obiedience, tracking, and ring sports. When it comes to boarding, I trust him to provide the same care my dogs would receive at home.

We decided to hire a dog trainer when our dog Buddy would roam our property and not come inside when we wanted him to. He always wanders too close to the road and we were afraid he would get hit by a car. Melaney was very professional and took the time to always answer all of our questions. We are very happy with Buddy's progress and the peace of mind we have when he is outside. We would recommend Melaney to anyone needing a dog trainer.

Having just moved to Lexington, I was at a loss as to who would watch our dog since we have never kenneled him. I'm so glad we found Jessica! She was amazing with our dog and I know he was well cared for with her. She was professional but also caring - she definitely put this mama at ease with updates while we were gone. She even straightened our house up a little which was an amazing sight after traveling all day long! I highly recommend her for your animal care needs!

Cindy has cared for my three dogs on more than one occasion. One of our dogs is up in years and has a few health issues so we no longer want to leave him at a boarding kennel. We prefer for the dogs to stay together at home when we travel. Cindy takes such good care of my fur babies and they are always happy to see her. Cindy loves on our fur babies and keeps them well fed and brushed. We are relieved to know our dogs are safe and happy with Ms. Cindy while we are away from the pack.

About

I am a college student, looking for part-time work in walking dogs and pet sitting. I am comfortable around all breeds of dogs, and I'm a dog lover to my core.

About

My approach is very holistic. I believe our dogs are reflections of our families. Most dog behavior issues arise when our own lives are out of balance. My goal is to help you achieve that balance so that we can work together to start training your pooch.

When your dog stays with us, they become part of my pack for the duration that they are here. I work with them on problem and nuisance behaviors that your dog may have. I will send you pictures, videos, and updates for each day that your dog stays with us.

Dunetos K-9 is different from other companies because we specialize in integrating your dog into your life. Too many companies either train the dog and neglect the handler, or only train the handler in specific situations. We expose the handler to as many situations as possible, including training in their own homes. This ensures that the dog is obedient and performs the skills you need, when you need them. Contact us for more information.

I'm in the Louisville area and local small business started to help people around the city to help them and their pets to feel like that they are meant for one another and to make sure that they stay together and not left out on the street. My price is based on the job and the pet that is and how long it take to take care of the problem. It is better if the animals are young, but if you have an old dog that need to learn a new trick then. I will be happy to see what happen with the animal and like the old saying can't teach an old dog a new trick, but I believe that that they can with time. So please, if you like what you hear then get at me and will go from there. Have a great day.

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.
