hristy is an awesome trainer. She loves dogs, and all animals, she is good with them all and and treats them well. She trained my dog Scooby with our electric fence in a short time, and she was very patient and treated Scooby like she was Christy's own dog. Scooby never tries to leave her territory, she know her boundaries and, when she does here the beep of her collar she turns around immediately. She knows what she is doing and she is very good and enjoys it immensely. I highly recommend her for behavioral, agility, and rally training.

Danielle is an excellent dog trainer. My dogs and I have taken group classes with her for obedience and agility, and they have also taken semi private lessons in disc. She explains things in a way that is easy to understand and my dogs love her!

Sully did a wonderful job. Our boxer puppy who is such a wild thing was actually calm by the time Sully was done working with her. I finally feel like the puppy will be able to find a comfortable place in our family now that Sully has taught me how to properly interact with the puppy. She is taking to the training very well with only token resistance.

Casey has done an outstanding job of educating ME to get what I want from my dog. I have a very energetic boxer with a mind of her own but when we go into the training class she is very obedient and does everything that I ask of her. Casey is able to quickly identify handler inconsistencies that may confuse the dog and gives us all of the tools that we need to succeed. We have worked hard both inside and outside of the training environment. I try to find new environments with different distractions to challenge my dog. We continue to have a few little issues but I'm sure with patience on my part, and repetition for the dog, we will accomplish all of my training goals. Thanks Casey

Shawn has given me complete confidence that I'll be able to better communicate with and understand my dog after he is done with his training. We have completed 1 week of a four-week session, but I already see a huge improvement. Highly recommend.

Kieli has helped us so much! About 3 months ago my husband and I had just about given up on our 4 year old dog April. She was aggressive to the point where she had even biten people. We didn't know where else to turn. After researching dog trainers in our area, we came across any canine. Not knowing what else to do, we emailed her right away. She was so quick to get back to us and to even come meet our dog. Kieli jumped right in to save us! I could go all day about how much Kieli has changed our lives but I will just tell you this. Today our dog April graduated from her training with Kieli! She can now meet strangers, walk off leash, and even hang out in downtown Portsmouth with the world's toughest distractions. We all know have the tools to live a long happy life together. Kieli is like no other and our family will never forget her! Thank you Kieli!!!

I have never considered boarding my dog in the past because I couldn't imagine my dog being in a cage and let out once a day in a concrete play yard with many other dogs. So grateful to have found Connie! As a pup, my dog benefited a great deal from her stay at Connie's. She was socialized with other dogs ALL DAY LONG and Connie also helped with her training and gave her lots of love. If my dog could talk, I would imagine that she would tell me that she had a wonderful vacation! Thanks Connie, for providing an environment that is stress free and fun for the dogs and worry free for us. Kathy K

There are not enough positive words to describe my experience with Trinity Tails Training. From day one, the employees of TTT have been very understanding and compassionate to the issues we were experiencing and needing help with. I never once felt like a failure in the dog training world and I have learned so much in just a few sessions with my own personal Great Dane and Great Dane fosters. I can reach out to TTT at anytime, with any issue (even if it seems trivial) and will be given direction on how to handle it until I could meet up with a trainer in person. I have recommended and will continue to recommend TTT to everyone I know. Being in the rescue world, finding a good dog trainer, is like finding gold. Thank you Trinity Tails Training! You are quite a blessing!

WAGS offers us something that is invaluable: peace of mind. We live in a high-rise apartment with a young, male boxer. As many dog owners know, apartment living can be challenging with such a high-energy breed, especially when you consider our busy work schedules. WAGS has helped us ensure that Bob gets all the attention and exercise he needs throughout our busy days. His walkers leave detailed notes telling their activities during each visit—they even posted updates, per request, on WhatsApp (an international texting app) while we were out of the country for a week. These thoughtful touches reinforce our feeling that when we are unavailable we are leaving Bob in good hands. We will continue to use their services up to five times a week in 2015. Thanks, WAGS!

Jen is a superb dog trainer and simply a great person to work with. Jen came highly recommended through a personal friend and end up as one our family friends. She is caring, compassionate, skilled, reliable and dependable, trustworthy. Though we are not in active training mode( she worked with our family and Louie, our labradoodle for a year) she is still is our go- to person to care for Louie when we are out of town. Our family marveled every lesson as Louie, our willfull and very independently minded dog would snap to attention the second she walked in our door. She is great. The dog whisperer has nothing on her.... Hire her.... You will be happy you did and so will your pup!

I received Cheyenne, my black lab, at about 1 year old. She was very stubborn and hard to handle when I received her. I hired Honor Roll Dog Training to help me get her under control. Kathy, Cheyenne's trainer, had her sitting, laying, going to her place, walking without pulling me, and catching, all in 5 weeks of training. Kathy trained Cheyenne in my home with a very gentle hand. I highly recommend her if you have a dog in need of training or want to take your dog to a higher level.

    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.
