Angie has taught me how to handle my dog, and in return, my dog is a much better behaved pet. She really listened to my concerns and made a plan to work on each one of them. I highly recommend Angels in the Infield! Professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about training dogs (and their people).

I met Barb about 4 years ago while at a 4-H meeting with my daughter. We were introduced to a whole new level of dog training that we didn't know was possible. All the struggles my daughter was having with her dog didn't seem to be a challenge to Barb. Barb always had an unique way to approach each situation. Not only does she have a fresh new way of looking at training she is cheerful and encouraging even though her students don't always follow through on their end. Barb geniuinly cares about her students and their dogs. You willl have a hard time finding any one as knowledgable and hardworking as Barb.

Having had dogs before, I had a basic understanding of the time and effort that goes into training a dog. It has been many years since our last dog and this time, training a puppy also meant training children to the same routine that we want the dog to learn and grow with. Working with Jeff has been a pleasure. He has provided me with good reminders as to how I need to approach our puppy. He has also provided me with my one-on-one training, so that I know how to instruct my wife and kids in their approach to our puppy. Having a dog in the house allows for great companionship as well as security. Having a dog that respects your authority and responds to your commands allows you to have a smooth interaction and a peaceful home!

    Took my 2 dogs here to get groomed. The dogs came home with no shedding, feeling soft, and smelled amazing! The staff is personal and friendly! Fast and flexible when making my appointment! The price point was great and fit my budget! I recommend Paws-N-Claws for grooming! My pups loved the homemade cookies too!

    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.

      I just rescued a 2.5 yr old male, Alpha pit that was tethered outside. He weighs 54 pounds. He does well with people. Walks "ok" on a leash. Has dog aggression, jumps, hyper at times, snips and plays pretty rough. He's a cuddle buddy. I've tried clicker, treats, whistle and any whatever someone can think of. Nothing works. Would prefer a boarding w/obedience training program.
