Meghan is such a great dog trainer! My boyfriend and I reached out to her to help train out 6 month year old golden retriever (Sophie). I cannot explain to you how much effort she put into training our dog. Before we met Meghan, I was becoming scared that Sophie was developing bad habits that couldn't be fixed. However, when Meghan came along, she taught us how to connect with Sophie and understand her needs. We have been able to fix the bad habits that Sophie was developing while continuing to improve her training. Meghan puts her heart and soul into pet care. For that reason, when our 4 week training session ended, we asked Meghan if we can continue training with her because we didn't want the progress to stop. Meghan was more than happy to continue training with us. She is hardworking and goes above and beyond to make sure we are understanding the concepts and are satisfied with the results. Thank you again Meghan for all that you have done. We were very fortunate to find someone like you to help us train Sophie!

Cheyenne has been amazing! We are so lucky to have found her. My dog is very skittish around most people, but he warmed up to her in no time. She just has a natural ability to connect with animals. She has also been so dependable and flexible with her schedule. Trust me, If you're searching for someone for your your furry little family members, do yourself a favor and just stop wasting your time.

We met Kelley 5 yrs ago when I was looking for a puppy trainer. I was Given a business card from my vet. I contacted Kelley and we decided to meet. I was so impressed how she worked . It became so clear it was not puppy training but human training. I enjoyed my first meeting it went by so fast I could not wait till it was time for another visit. And Toby couldn’t wait for the amazing treats she had. Kelley is a very passionate in what she does to help everyone learn how to work together. Her knowledge in her craft is second to none in my opinion. I have recommended Kelley now for 5 years.

I am very pleased with this service! Our first consultation with Awesome Pawsabilities brought remarkable results with our puppy, Floyd. Jenn and Annmarie took copious notes and listened to all my questions and concerns, then proceeded to get right to training. Jenn worked with Floyd on his impulse control and within minutes I could see improvement. We received a comprehensive training plan and are looking forward to our next session. I highly recommend Awesome Pawsabilities!

    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.

    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.

    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?
