We hired Stacey after working with another local trainer with less than stellar results. Our two females had been getting into fights and Stacey worked with them both on being able to coexist around each other in a safe manner. We learned how to deliver well-timed praise and corrections to show our dogs what we want and what is not allowed. We learned how to read and address dog body language, as well as a few basic household management skills to set them up for success. We like that she doesn't rely on treats to teach basic obedience and manners - we just wanted our dogs to listen to us without having to bribe them constantly. Both dogs can now sit or lie down and stay there until released. No more jumping up or pushing for attention. Since they have had years to practice their bad behaviors before we started training them, they are not yet perfect but they are light years away from where they started. But more importantly, WE are more confident as handlers, and that confidence flows down the leash and into our dogs. Thank you Stacey!!

She was able to not only change the behavior of our dog in a matter of minutes, but more importantly, able to teach us very simple and effective tricks to modify his behavior.

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!!

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!!

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 am very impressed with 2 Paws Up pet sitting services and dog training classes. I have participated in every dog training class Gayla has offered. I have been happy with the professional way Gayla teaches the classes and the information I have received from these classes. She is patient with both owner and dog and encourages everyone with a positive attitude. I will continue to take classes offered thru 2 Paws Up.

    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.
