I absolutely adore Stacey & her dog training school. She has been a life saver to us. We hired her right after we got our lab as a puppy at Christmas. She is super good at training us & our dog. She helped us survive the stage where we were second guessing our decision to get a dog. I don't know where we would be if it wasn't for Stacey! She knows a ton about dogs & I would hire her in a heartbeat if I got another puppy. In fact, we liked her so much we signed up for a second set of lessons and even told some of our friends about her :) She is super reliable, kind & very loving to our sweet dog Tinsel. I hired her off the internet after talking to a few of her references so I took a chance on her & it has worked out great. By the way...we happened to have signed up for classes at Petsmart when we got our puppy and I can tell you for sure that there is no comparison between the one on one training you get with Stacey & the group lessons at Petsmart. Well worth your money & Stacey is a great trainer!!! I love her!!!!

Coty did awesome training my dog. Using positive reinforcement and clicker training, my dog bonded to him immediately. Coty came well informed. He knew all the steps I have to complete in getting the results I need for my my disability. I am excited to continue working with Coty and would recommend his calm and great energy to my friends and family in a heart beat. Thank you

I adopted a white boxer from the Tulsa Animsl Shelter. Lola showed signs of food aggression and did not get along with my four Bostons. Jaimie Flinchbaugh was able to teach her manners and then some. Her style of dog training is impeccable as for her love for all animals. Lola will now crate up when I leave for work, go to her pillow when the doorbell is ringing. She will sit on command, lay down and shake your hand. Lola has turned over a new leaf and gets love from her Boston family. All is good in the household after the transformation of miss Lola. I cannot express my appreciation enough. Lola is now a wonderful dog and loved by all. If you need a trainer, please call Jaimie Flinchbaugh. She is just a gem!!

I was never comfortable letting someone take care of my dog, Meiling, until I met Deann. I knew my baby was being taken care of and she always looked forward to her midday walks. I couldn't have asked for anyone better to help me take care of my baby in her last days.

Dana is the real deal. I took my leash reactive pup to her, because I didn't feel comfortable with just anyone working with him. She was patient, kind, and supportive of not only my pup but through all the training she provided she was also a consummate cheerleader for me. She helped both me and my pup gain confidence and learn to trust each other. Dana not only helped me with my pup but she's also helped in the training my of my friends and families dogs. She is a consummate professional who wants all humans and dogs alike to succeed. And she will give you all the skills you need to train your dog in her own fun and delightful way. You won't be disappointed!!

    Wow. I have gone through many dog walkers in my time, but she is honestly the best one. With my crazy busy schedule between work and school and all of the other crazy things I have to do in a day, she was the perfect walker for me. She came when I needed her the most and impacted not only my life, but my 5 dog's lives as well

    Perry is an outstanding trainer! Thank you for your help with Sequel. She is a completely different dog. Our bond is stronger and she appreciates me more! I attached a picture of her 1st birthday. We would never have been able to take this picture if they hadn't been through the board and train program! (her littermate, Nova also was trained by Perry)

        I used Lily Luna Pet Care to care for my three dogs while I traveled for work, which was more often then not. She was a godsend, as she was diligent in her duties, always on time, and most importantly she made sure my Charlie, Lily, and Daisy were always fed, safe, and felt loved in my absence. I loved working with her, I only wish my job didn't relocate me away from her.

        Jessica Dog Sitting

        New To Thumbtack

          About

          With the college and the military base so close, I know that a lot of people are afraid to leave because they don't have a reliable person to watch their beloved pets. It can be really stressful when you're trying to fly home for the summer or you're leaving on deployment and have no way to bring your poor cat or dog along with you. I am offering a pet walking and pet sitting service for locals, whether you have to work a late shift and want someone to come by and check on your pet for a night or you're leaving for an extended period of time and would like your pet to be able to stay in the comfort of your own home. I've taken care of many dogs, cats, chinchillas, hamsters, fish, etc. and have only had the most pleasant experiences. My rates are as follows: * Pet walks: local (within 10 miles) -- $15 * Pet walks: nonlocal -- $15 plus $.25 every mile for over 10 miles for gas * House-sitting: local -- $25 per night or $100 for 5 days at your residence * House-sitting: local -- $20 per night or $75 for 5 days at my residence All other sitting needs can be discussed and arranged as needed. I'd like to help more than I'm worried about how little or how much you can pay. I have a passion for animals and would like to use that passion to help people. Please email or text me with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your time.

            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.
