Danielle is wonderful!! She is very knowledgeable and has suggestions/answers to any issues you may be having with your dog. My dog in particular needed training in developing manners. My dog was jumping, nipping and chewing on things in our house. Danielle was very patient in training her. She offered us suggestions on keeping our dog busy to distract her from chewing on things in our house. Danielle's training helped us learn ways to control her behaviors. I highly recommend Danielle. Our dog's behavior has really improved. It's nice to know that Danielle is available for refresher lessons if needed in the future!

I can not stress how impressed my husband and I are with Michael. We could tell from the initial phone call that he was truly passionate with what he's doing, but when we met him in person his passion, work ethic, and techniques all are evident within seconds. Our dog was deemed "un-trainable" by several other dog trainers, well they were wrong... PLEASE don't give up on your dog, give Michael a call first!

Left many detailed instructions for Maile so that our beagle would have continuity of care while we were away. Directions were followed and pics sent to us certainly eased our minds while away. Would recommend without hesitation.

We were referred to Ingrid, by another dog trainer, a mutual friend of ours. Before we started working with the trainer who referred us, our dog, Storm, was incredibly shy and fearful. Being the giant dog that he is, that was a serious problem. Since working with Ingrid, Storm has made incredible steps towards becoming more confident and outgoing. While he still doesn't much care for strangers, he is now quite friendly towards family, and it is all thanks to Ingrid. She works flawlessly with Storm, sympathetically guiding his feelings (of which he has many) towards a more optimistic and friendly outlook on life, and family members. She is very friendly towards both people and animals, and very unassuming: not demanding anything that the either one is not ready to do. Her results are excellent.

Tori was wonderful! We had 2 one hour private lessons to help my black lab Jack adjust to Snoopy our newly adopted beagle. By the end of the second hour, Jack had accepted Snoopy without the aggression that he had first shown. Snoopy is only 17 lbs and I was afraid the Jack, being 75 lbs, would hurt him. Tori knows exactly what she is doing and is confident in her abilities. I highly recommend Tori to anyone who may be looking to help train their dogs.

Loved loved loved Tonia Maier & her private dog training lessons. She is a very caring, dedicated & professional dog trainer & lover of all animals. Her understanding of dogs & her training techniques are superb. She gives you all the necessary training tools and skills needed for success, in being able to work with your dog on a daily bases, in redirecting any bad behaviors and learning new lifetime skills needed for your dog/s to come, stay, sit & leave it. She also teaches you important socialization tools needed in training your dog. She gives you a copy of written weekly follow-up training materials to keep on hand for continued training that has to be done by the dog owner on a consistent day to day bases for complete success. She has taught me that good dog behaviors are the sole responsibility of the owner. A dog is only as good as the owner trains it & allows it to be. Dogs are, and always will be our very best friends! I love them all. Thank you Tonia for your help, skills and patience. You are very talented, loving, kind and simply the BEST dog training professional I have met. KUDOS Tania - me and Milo are pawsatively very thankful and happy with our continued & dedicated daily training techniques you have taught us. Ciao 🐾 👍👏 😎

    I was looking for a trainer to help introduce a puppy into the home with my other dog. Nichole came in the house and helped with food aggression, helped me command the respect I had lost from my dog and teach respect to my new puppy. I couldn't be happier with the results, both of my babies now listen to me, walk well on a leash and Nichole gave me a bunch of tips to keep that work going in the right direction now that the classes are over.

      After my dog died I contacted Wendy for advice in adopting a "second-hand" dog. After a lengthy consultation I invited Wendy to participate in the selection process at a near-by shelter. Her knowledge and insights were incredibally helpful. I have had my new dog for over two years. We are a great match. Thanks, Wendy!

      Rachel is extremely knowledgeable, obviously has a ton of experience, and got immediate results (of course, right?! darn dog!). She had suggestions that were well beyond the obvious training routines, that we never would have considered, and that made a significant difference. Rachel has a very calming demeanor that definitely contributes to a positive, productive session...for both dog and human alike! We have already had her out for an additional session and even though we now have a good handle on the things that we wanted tweaked, we are considering taking one of her Advanced group classes if schedules allow just to really fine tune our pups listening, obedience, and skills. Over the years having owned a few dogs we have dealt with many trainers for both group classes and private sessions, including the local "dog whisperer", and I truly can't recommend Rachel enough!

      We have used Nicole numerous times over the past year for in home dog sitting. Each and every time she exceeds our expectations. She treats our fur babies so well....makes sure they are loved, walked and fed. Communicates effectively with us during our trip for updates. Our puppies are so calm and happy when we get home...I'm 100% certain that Nicole gives our puppies the love and caring they deserve while we're away. We'll use Nicole again and again!

        Chris Velez is the most competent, knowledgeable, and reliable dog trainer there is! I have seen him work with a variety of breeds all of different personalities and behaviorial issues. He amazes me each time in his ability to quickly assess the dog's problem and correct it. He consistently gets a dog obeying him within minutes as he seems to have a magical connection with all canine. Not only that, but his demeanor and disposition with the human owners is equally excellent as he can easily teach them what needs to be done in order to maintain the correction. His attitude is outstanding...always with the motivation of helping others...not making money.

          Holly is a certified dog trainer. She has personally trained my chi-pom in basic commands of sit and stay as well as leash walking. She is very down to earth and personable. I would highly recommend her for these services.

          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.
