We found James online as we had never used this service before. Our dogs immediately took to him and it was great that he sent us photos everyday while watching them. We look forward to having him watch our dogs again, as do our two dogs.

I have had the pleasure to take instruction with Jennifer in 3 different dog training classes. My dog Morgen, a black lab, and I started with Jennifer in puppy class, moved on to intermediate and then completed advanced training. Morgen is only 10 months old and we are always getting complimented on his great behavior in public at such a young age. Jennifer kept the classes stimulating and fun for both the human and dog. She is very skilled and has abundant knowledge in dog training and handling. Anyone attending Jennifer's training classes will not be disappointed. She is a true professional.

David has years of experience training dogs. He also has a heart to help people. He started Mtn View Kennels to provide a way for people to afford diabetic alert dogs for themselves or family members. He took a new approach by setting up a non-profit organization where people give tax deductible donations towards a diabetic alert dog.

This was an extremely positive experience. I totally trust these trainers with my dog, and they were also wonderful at "training" me. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Laura was highly recommended to me, and did not disappoint! This was the first time I have ever seeked help from the dog training world and Laura made this a very pleasant, and positive experience! My fearful puppy Boone IMMEDIATELY warmed up to her and felt at ease. Boone and I learned some new tricks to help difuse fear and better cope with approaching dogs. I think Boone wanted to leave with her! 100% satisfied and would definitely recommend to anyone having any concerns, or questions about their beloved pups. Thanks again!

    I can't say enough about the crew at Off Leash K9 Training! They have provided me and my dog Sasha a life that we have always wanted but thought never possible. She will come when called, lay down away from the table during meals and walks so amazingly well next to me. I HIGHLY recommend everyone takes their dog to Off Leash K9 Training, you won't regret it.

      Jackie trained my family pet, an Aussie, as a favor early on. It was easy to see the potential she possessed even as a teen. She also trained me, an essential part of living with a dog. After formal obedience training and more than a decade of experience, Jackie is a first rate trainer who is also easy to get along with and highly responsible.

      Katy and Mitch were great, dependable, love animals and are very accommodating. We needed a dog sitter for (4) large dogs for 1 week while out of the country. They came to the property and checked on them at least 1 x day to ensure they were safe, had food and water and played with them a bit. Katy even took the extra step to clean up clay that the dogs had brought into the cabin when they came inside to sleep at night. I will definitely be using them again and recommend their services. Very reasonable cost.

      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.
