Browse these aggressive dog trainers with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Oregon City.
Prompt response from Thumbtack, to dog trainers and the one I've booked with, Critters, seems to be first rate. We haven't had our first session yet so will respond later. but happy to have found this trainer through your service.
Our German Sheppard was very aggressive with other dogs. Cynthia did a fantastic job, in a short amount of time, at a very reasonable cost, in changing this behavior. She individualizes the program to your dog. Highly Recommend!
We have experienced many dog / dog owner trainers over the years; Jana is our favorite. She understands dogs; she understands the dog | human interface. She is pleasant, professional, and flexible.
Molly Wong came today and after just an hour and a half I knew she was the perfect trainer. Our dog responded very quickly and we learned so much that we can immediately put into our daily routine. I'm very grateful.
I hired Rob end of last summer for my 4 month old lab...everything we learned with Rob has worked great. Porter completely listens to the magic word and he reacts with no hesitation. I highly recommend Rob to train your pup!!
Just an amazing experience, gave us hope for training our unruly dog. One of the best.
We have enjoyed Jamie as a trainer. She has excellent ideas and brings her dogs to help our dog learn to accept others. When we are ready, she is going to help us pick out a puppy that would work for our family. I would highly recommend her.
Jeff is a wonderful trainer. He honestly cares about the success of our dog Dave and has been extremely helpful. He is flexible in availability for our training sessions, which works well for our schedules. The thing that I like the most is that Jeff has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help us understand our dog's behavior and how to care for him; he even helped us find recommendations for pet insurance. I would definitely recommend Jeff to anybody I know that is in need of dog training!
Charges very reasonable rates. Very knowledgable and seems to have a lot of experience. Gave us very helpful tools to use for our 2 dogs who started having aggression towards each other. Would definately recommend her training services and will be using her in the future as well.
Risa is a lover of dogs and dog lovers. She has worked with my daughter for over a year with a rescue dog, Lexie. Risa has been patient in the training--she does not move on if more work is needed in a particular area, either on behalf of the dog or the owner. We have appreciated her work with us, and Lexie is a much more pleasant part of our family now. Risa also has a heart for pairing folks with disabilities with therapy dogs. Training and therapy dogs--Risa at George and Friends is THE Go-To Person!
Such a caring person. She taught me a lot in just one session - I am glad some trainers out there have an understanding of dogs and don't just follow what is the most popular training method. Very versatile trainer! Thanks again, Brenda H.
My two dogs absolutely love Mamie. She is affectionate and playful with them and her enthusiasm is infectious. One of my dogs has some aggressive tendencies and Mamie is very good at dealing with her behavior. Would recommend Mamie to anyone looking for an experienced and patient dog walker and pet sitter.
Fabulous trainer. I hired multiple other trainers before finding her. My dogs seem like different dogs.
I was looking for advanced obedience for me and my dog. Youngblood thought me so much on how to handle my dog and not to give up. A few times he would tell me to do something a certain way and I would think "ok he's full of it, this won't work". Every time I was proven wrong. He's the only trainer that I trust 100%. My dog and I have come a long way thanks to him.
Erin was super awesome with our pup, who has been aggressive toward visitors. She showed us what to do to create a successful interaction between our dog and visitors, and explained what was going on in his head, why he was anxious. We are now confident that we can receive visitors without being fearful they will get bit. Erin also helped us understand our pup, his body language, what he was thinking as a rescue dog, and connected us with super valuable health insights and resources. Erin showed us how to teach Cole to walk beside us, and encouraged us to set a schedule, and add more structure and routine. Thanks so much Erin!
We were very lucky in having Cayla for a trainer. Tanner is a very big, stubborn dog, and not easy to control. If we ever encounter a problem these days, we always go back to the training and ask ourselves, "what would Cayla tell us to do?" By following her instructions, it has been the only way we can control our hyper, strong headed dog. Cayla’s guidance, instruction and teachings are invaluable to us and vital to our success with Tanner. We strongly recommend her.
Bringing our Shiba inu to Holly was the best thing we ever did. We were at our wits end and didn't know what to do with her aggression. Holly took her in and treated her like her own with love and she has never been better! She listens, places, sits, comes, everything. We can have her around company and finally a real part of our family. Wouldn't have made it without Holly. She kept is updated and assured that she was greatly cared for when we did to want to let her go, well my boyfriend. :) best trainer out there! Do what's best for your family!!
I will pet sit, train your canine in basic manners and obedience, etc. I walk dogs, clean them up (nails, teeth, coat, ears), etc. I have a service dog in training, a retired service dog. I've studied training for years. I love animals.
We are committed to using positive, rewards-based training methods to help dog owners build healthy relationships with their canine family members. From puppy kindergarten and basic skill building courses to agility and trick training, we offer a variety of classes and seminars year-round in a heated, indoor facility. All classes are taught by a certified pet dog trainer, and class sizes are kept small to ensure personalized attention.
In my conversations with dog owners, I find that evaluating good recall in a dog seems to be fairly subjective. Contrary to what many dogs owners think, recalling a dog that has just run upstairs at home where there are relatively few novel distractions is not really considered a good test of recall. Professional dog trainers rely on more stringent measures and more rigorous tests. For example, developing good recall means that you can recall your dog at the dog park 9 out of 10 times when the dog is engaged with other dogs and at a fair distance. Recall is a life saving cue or command, beyond just a convenient behavior. Dog Trainer Dude focuses on basic obedience and, particularly, behaviors that ensure safety and adhere to proper dog behavior etiquette out in public in urban areas, such as recall (coming on command). Most of my clients come to me after discovering that the behaviors taught to their dog with the assistance of conventional training methods are unsustainable. I correct unwanted behaviors like inappropriate and unsolicited jumping on owners and strangers. I work on the sit-stay command requiring the dog to hold for more than just a few seconds. In other words, I polish off the kinds of things you thought you were going to be sustainable, but have proven not to be. I also work on shaping new behaviors and addressing more complex problem behaviors that result from environmental constraints or limited socialization.
i make the dog and owner more compatable. I take pride in my work, and this is my passion. I have made it my mission in life, and want people to understand their dog.
