My son suffered a TBI about 7 years ago. He recently got a rescue dog for a service/therapy dog. K911 has done a phenomenal job in training both the dog and my son. LOL. Kevin knows what he is talking about and he has patience. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Denise is awesome. She taught us and our Bulldogs how to changing bad behavior immediately. A week after her first session our family can by and noticed how much calmer and respectful the dogs were. Thanks Denise. We look forward to continued training with you. The Manzos

I hired Melissa 13 years ago in New York. I had no idea she was no longer working for the NYPD. I found her here on Thumbtack and did not hesitate to hire her to train my new dogs. She is one of the best K9 trainers in the business and highly professional. She is very easy to work with, has an incredible connection with animals and work diligently to insure your dog(s) are trained correctly. She works with you, teaches you and explains why she uses that particular method. HIGHLY recommend her!

Anniina uses an easy to understand method of dog training, breaking down behavioral concepts to apply to both dogs and humans - after all, we humans are the ones who are really in need of training! Anniina has years of experience and can assess all different types of situations within the first training session. More importantly, she delivers training with so much compassion for the families she works with: She makes herself available for follow-up questions and concerns and always uses encouragement and reinforcement for all involved. I highly recommend Anniina Jones to anyone in need of training for their furbabies.

I called them to have a pet massage for our dog. Our older dog had just passed away and our Caesar, was so stressed. Susan did a wonderful job of working with him. For the first time in weeks, he was getting back to his prior fun self. Thanks, All American Girls

When I got my German Sheppard he was very wild, loud, and enjoyed running out to the streets every time the garage door opened. I called Sit Means Sit Anthem after looking at their videos on their website and schedule an appointment. In just five minutes in the demonstration my dog became more relaxed, quit barking for everything, and most importantly stopped running into the streets when the garage door opened. I have been with them since February and never looked back, the training program is awesome they will take the time to help you with anything you need. If you want the best out of your dog Sit Means Sit Anthem is the place you need to go!

The most wonderful experience. It's very hard to find a trainer for a working dog, especially a service dog. My German shepherd Denali is now a official service dog through training by Sterling Ridge K9. He's my whole world, and I'm so blessed. Kristina changed my life and gave me my confidence to go out again and feel safe through my boy. I had been needing a service dog for a few years but I couldn't afford thousands to train with a society or any trainer wasn't capable or offering it. We are getting back out there! Thank you so much for everything.

Our Belgian Malinois, Sophie, was 11 months old and a very active dog when we contacted Ken at Taggs K9 for her pulling on leash and leash aggression. Sophie spent 3 weeks with Ken and his pack. I felt very comfortable knowing that Sophie was in a caring, safe environment. His video updates showed us the progress she was making daily. At the end of 3 weeks, Ken brought Sophie to our house and worked with us demonstrating Sophie's new skills and how to use her new collars when walking her and reinforcing her new found good manners! She is now such a well behaved family member and is training to be a service dog. We take her everywhere and get many compliments on her good behavior. Thank you so much, Ken, for bringing out the best in Sophie!

Very good working knowledges of dogs. It was not rushed he took his time and did not push my 6 month old Doberman puppy. While training he still let him be a puppy and figure things out. I was was pleased with our first meeting and the outcome. Would highly recommend Luis to anyone


I offer basic obedience and puppy classes. Private and small group classes available. I will teach you to teach your dog.


We have been training all breed dogs since 1985. We use positive motivation training and trial for sports, rally as well as obedience. We are certified AKC trainers and Trainers of Merit through the ACA.


Provide basic obedience training i.e. sit, platz (lay down), leave it (works to keep them away from items, people, other dogs and food). Also have experience dealing with dogs with issues after being abused (dealt with food guarding, fear biting, etc.) Will work on socialization if an issue and building a dogs confidence. If you just keep your dog in the backyard as a yard ornament, do not contact me.


Spending a large portion of my life working on a ranch training everything from dogs to horses I have found great joy in helping others learn more about their furry family members and help them learn how to live very rewarding lives together.


I have experience training dogs, exercising, walking and spending time visiting with animals. For example, I trained and exercised two mid-sized poodles. They were a challenge as one had a high level of fear of other dogs and the other constantly guarded the frightened dog. It took a good month or training to reduce the heightened fear response from hyper jumping and whimpering to walking quietly beside me. I care about the dogs I work with. I utilize a goal of compassionate cooperation between myself and the dog to achieve the goals of an enjoyable relationship.


I spend quality time with your pet one on one, or in group setting. Will have your pet sit, stay, come,and heal on comand in in just a few days. Also will house sit, or board all types of pets.I love working


I offer in-home dog obedience and puppy training. I do daily dog walking and in-your-home daytime pet checks. I will improve your pet's life through proper training and care.


I'm your dog's best friend. I love teaching dogs how to behave and to do tricks. You will love the changes and improvements.


Every pet receives my personal loving care; whether going for a walk, playtime in the backyard, or just sitting on a couch and cuddling, every moment is dedicated to the pet.


I love animals. I train them and make them a part of the family; I want them to fit. I also train the owner to understand what must be done.

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.
