This is the best decision I have ever made! Instead of going to dog training classes over and over again. After only 3 lessons my dog is walking off leash and knows his commands! Terry knows dogs! Thank you I'm very happy with the results!

Katie was one of the trainers who trained my service dog as a puppy. Without Katie's hard work, Leni would not be the partner for me that she is. Leni is not a quiet, obedient dog. She has a mind of her own and can be a bit too smart for her own good. Katie set the foundation for Leni's training when she was a puppy so that she could be the dog she is for me today. I now rely on Leni as my medical alert dog to keep me safe, and it is the obedience training foundation and task training that she received that make her able to do her job and do it well. Having Leni has changed my life, and the training Katie did with her has been a huge reason that Leni has become the service dog that she is. Katie is incredibly talented as a trainer and knows how to connect with each dog to get the best out of them. Choosing Katie to train your dog will not disappoint!

Amy has been fantastic to work with. We’ve had many people say they’ve noticed a change since we’ve been working with her. We needed the training just as much as our dog did! I have already recommended her to a few people who told me they needed training for their dogs.

Dog Logic is the logical choice in dog training; from puppies to older adult dogs. The training of my Dachshund was amazing and he can really be a part of the family with his good manners that he learned. Check it out and I recommend a private session to have your animal assessed to his/her own abilities. Well worth my money!

We use Paradigm K9 for our German Shepherd puppy training. What stands out is Jeff's willingness to be supportive of our puppy training via phone with questions as well as his demonstrated professional training methods. He is knowledgeable about different breeds and their unique traits. He has a plan to ensure training is effective and very rewarding. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone wanting an objective, professional to work with you and your dog for a successful partnership.

Ashley dog sat my dog for me while I was out of town for a few days. She did a wonderful job and my dog loves her! Ashley fed, watered, walked, and even played and spent time with my yorkie everyday I was gone. She even went above & beyond and tidied up for me. Absolutely outstanding! I definitely recommend her and will be using her in the future.

Josh and Brittany are incredible. We signed up our 10 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback for their 2 week program and had an awesome experience. As soon as we walked in the door, we knew Nala was in good hands. They treat each dog as if it's their own. Nala came into the program with several bad habits (jumping, nipping, counter surfing, barking, etc.). The typical puppy stuff. The drop off was fantastic. Josh and Brittany explained the program in detail and made sure they addressed all of our concerns. Not more than a half hour after drop off, Josh had already sent me an email with an update saying Nala had settled in nicely. Every thing about these folks is first class. Throughout the two weeks, we were provided with updates through social media and email. Our minds were at complete ease throughout the two weeks. Pick up went amazing as well. Josh and Brittany went over everything they had taught Nala and made sure we were comfortable and set up for success at home. Nala has only been home a couple days now and her bad behaviors have essentially disappeared. And, she hasn't lost any of her personality. A miracle! We cannot promote Lead the Way enough. Great program and great people. They are on a different level from any other training program. Thank you so much Josh and Brittany!

    I was referred to Sky Dogs when I adopted a deaf dog from Spreak! for the Unspoken. Allison Holloway teaches a special needs class for deaf, blind, and deaf-blind dogs and puppies. Once we got the basics down, we found the training staff was open to us joining in other classes. Nosework, treibball, flyball, agility, and many other courses are open to all dogs. If you need help improving your dog's social skills, there are behavioral classes as well. The cost is very reasonable. The center is located at Central Point in Columbus and there is plenty of well lit parking. Besides the affordable prices and friendly atmosphere, Sky Dogs fosters a sense of community among participants and provides opportunities for people (and their dogs) to volunteer to help out in rescue efforts.

    About

    Do you have to bribe, threaten, or trick your dog into listening? Does your dog have to be shut away instead of enjoying life with you? Do you know your dog could be great, if only he wasn’t so wild and out of control? If your dog is barking, biting, chasing, running away, and in general ruining your life, we can help. If your dog listens when there’s nothing better to do, but does what he wants as soon as something more interesting comes along, we can fix that too. The worse your dog is today, the better he can be tomorrow.

    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?
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
