Jennifer was willing to meet our needs, and offered alternative options for training our dog to stay in the yard with her electric fence. It turns out we had a rechargeable collar that wasn't holding charge. We replaced the system and our dog is now staying in the yard again. I want to thank Jennifer for bearing with us through the process. Lynn

Sandy led the second round of training for my 2-year old rescue dog. Our first training class offered at a major pet retail chain was OK, but the training was a little disorganized. Sandy corrected the earlier training, offering really practical and helpful advice for me to work with my dog. Each training lesson built on the previous one, so the learning was reinforced. And best of all, Sandy really loves her job and her students! (And my dog is always happy when he sees her!) I recommend Sandy highly!

I was in desperate need of help because my two year old Labrador became aggressive over food, toys, and my attention. I had to do something and something fast. I called K9 academy and was in utter shock at how awesome they are! The trainer hung up the phone with me and came right to us to help us. I’m overjoyed with the fact that my dog Whiskey has been doing this for five days and I have a different dog already. I’m so excited for the process to continue and would recommend K9 Academy to anyone and everyone!

John has an objective eye and vast knowledge for training any and all dog types. He truly understands the relationship between a dog and their owner and during training he provides timely and constructive feedback. John helped both myself and my husband be more aware of our body language and how our mannerisms set the tone with how our dog reacts and empowered us to be the "alpha" dog so to speak in order to have a well balanced dog. Without hesitation we would recommend John as a qualified trainer. Beth and Scott D.

Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!

Chelsea trained my shepherd mix, Harley, over the last year since he was 2 months old. Not old did she provide effective training, but she also taught me how to properly interact with my dog so I can continue what's she's taught us in our sessions. Whenever I have a question I'm always able to call or text her and she will be right there to help. Her sense of humor and extensive knowledge of dogs made every session enjoyable, I looked forward to every meeting. My fur baby is so well behaved in the house as well as in public settings :)

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Last night I received my new boy, Abel from Jenny McPhee at Omni K9. Abel was shipped from Massachusetts to my place in California, and when Abel was unloaded from the transport van, I called his name and it was like an instant bond. I have never seen a bad pup come from Omni K9, they are all stable, level headed, excellently bred working dogs. Jenny sent Abel's x-rays of his hips and elbows, and they are excellent. No issues at all! Abel is a year and a half old and was started on his training when he was a pup by Jenny and Nick. I can vouch for their training as I was playing around with some obedience work with Abel today. His recall, heel, down/stay are all on point! More so that I thought it would be since he is a green dog. The amount of time, love, care and training Jenny has for all of her dogs is phenomenal and it all shows through each of them. Abel was her boy, her companion, and his demeanor is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend Nick and Jenny's training at Omni K9 and Jenny for her Omni K9 Gear products to anyone looking for an excellent training equipment and amazing working dogs!!

Noelle was great! We came to her for aggression and destructive behavior, and she surpassed everything we expected. We got Riley back a whole new dog!! She came to our house during training and coached us through her training process. We could not be happier with her and the care and training of our dog. I'd give her 6 stars if I could!

Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.

Kim is a natural with dogs. Her training methods are easy to follow for both dog and handler, and her kind but firm approach is well received by her furry clients. If you are looking to improve on your ability to effectively communicate with your dog to strengthen your bond and improve his/her manners both on and off leash, I would highly recommend Eye-to-Eye Dog Training!

T&J’s K9 Academy has been great to us. We were lucky enough to be the new home for our wonderful dog Tito. Tito’s previous owners couldn’t keep him and needed help finding him a new home. It turned out to be a perfect fit for us. We took Tito in and he immediately became best friends with our other dog. We had a few issues with Tito listening to certain commands from us. Joe at T&J’s K9 academy was more than helpful with some extra training. He explained that it’s a completely new environment for him and that it would take a little work to teach him. He helped us the entire way giving us tips to help us train him. We love Tito and couldn’t be happier with how things turned out!

    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.
