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

Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy

Lisa provided help with our 8 month old puppy with behavior training. She is a dog whisper. Our puppy is now super responsive to commands, this all after one week with Lisa. Lisa is kind and has a great reward based approach with training. Puppy is a breeze to walk, sits when we stop and stays put for almost 5 minutes now. He is consistently listening for commands verse making his own decisions. We are so impressed! If you are looking for confidence building in both your dog and yourself, Lisa is your trainer. She not only puts the time in with our puppy but takes time to make sure you know the commands, how to work consistently with them and follow through with each family member. In addition, Lisa has sent 2 follow up emails checking on his/our progress. Can't thank her enough!

Ok, I am telling you guys that Sandy Nelson is the Mary Poppins of dog training. I can not believe how easy she made it to learn how to get Ruby, my Saint Bernard, to actually listen (Ruby will now sit for treats). Today was the first lesson for my new girl "Babs". Babs is a Bassett Hound and like all hounds she is pretty dopey. Her first lesson went fantastic. With Sandy's help I am going to have two well behaved pooches. I can NOT say enough good things about The Pawsitive Experience. I am so grateful to have found Sandy on here.

Not only does he show you how to work with your dogs but he is a great person and willing to answer any question and he also doesn’t talk down to you or talk you like your stupid which was my experience with other trainers.

I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.

My girlfriend and I rescued our puppy coming up on a year ago and we have been bringing her to Lucky Dog for about 9 months or so. Hands down, the staff here is the friendliest and most helpful group of people! I could tell immediately how much they take pride in being amazing at what they do. They know their customers(pets as well as humans) by name, they're always cheerful and go above and beyond every single time we're there. They evaluate the dogs and make sure they're kept with others that they'll get along with, they have a webcam service that lets you watch your doggo if you want, and they have TONS of stuff available in their retail section as well from treats to food to toys and clothing. They also offer boarding and their prices are worth every cent because we know our pupper will be extremely well taken care of! If you're hesitant about finding a place for your little furball, have no fear, LUCKY DOG IS HERE!

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!

    Zephyr has mastered the art of dog training. Within minutes of our first session our previously untrained, recently adopted dog was sitting and heeling. We were trying to reduce his low level anxiety by working with him on basic obedience skills. Zephyr was very patient with me as I learned how to give the commands and how to use the leash. He was also very kind and loving to my dog, which I know is very important to most dog owners. My dog has shown less anxiety and greatly increased obedience skills in just three sessions with Zephyr. We are already recommending his services to family and friends with dogs!

    She is amazing with the animals! She taught my dog (and me) most of the basic commands in just 45 mins with great results! She spent a good 2 hrs. Talking about ways I can help my dog (new rescue), and how she is willing to help me. I could not have found a better, more personable trainer than Kim.

      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.
