    Jennifer was great! I am training my 7 month Lab to work as a service dog for me. She drove from Pittsburgh PA to Erie PA, ABOUT 125 miles. She was prompt, personable and professional. Jennifer was very knowledgeable and really knew about the breed. My dog responded to her very well and did commands for her that I had been not successful getting my dog to do. Jennifer gave me suggestions that I can work on at home and with my local trainer. She told me if I had questions or needed help just to call and would do what she could. I was very impressed and happy with her. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone who needs help with dog training.

    Shannon M.

    Within the first hour of my consultation, Paula had my shih-tzu puppy Stella sitting and laying down on cue. She taught me exactly what to do to continue to reinforce the behaviors, and just in the 24 hours since she left, Stella is doing both for me pretty consistently. I am excited to see how much Stella improves over the next week! Paula really knows her stuff, and gave me great advice on everything from correcting some potty training issues to getting Stella on a better diet. Thanks Paula!!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dogworks Training Center

(3 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

All of the instructors at Dogworks love working with both the people and their dogs to help them become the best of companions. Whether it's teaching good manners so that dogs are welcome on their people's adventures, or helping dogs with behavior problems such as aggression, reactivity, or fearfulness, we want to help people and dogs to have a long and enjoyable life together. We enjoy spreading the word about, demonstrating, and teaching the power of positive-reinforcement training methods.

Describe your most memorable project.

Our memorable projects happen weekly! We love seeing puppies and their owners get started on the path to a long and happy relationship. We see dogs who are aggressive to other dogs, learn to relax and tolerate, or even enjoy, the proximity of other dogs. We see dogs who are fearful, develop confidence and security. We see dogs earn their titles in Obedience, Rally, Nosework, and Agility. Most importantly, we see happy dogs and happy owners.
