Mike and Starla did an excellent job with my 5- month old pit bull. They curbed his biting and jumping, and he learned several commands. He's still my happy baby, just better behaved. :-) They were always available to speak with during my puppy's training, and I was kept up to date on his progress. My dog was well cared for and I'm very pleased with the results.

Let's face it - Puppy Training is really about owner training. Amy and her partner John tailored their training to both the needs of our puppy and our family. We have already recommended Animal Talker to our friends (potential first time dog owners). We REALLY wished we had the opportunity to gets some "training" from Animal Talker before we brought our puppy home. We will continue to use them as our dog grows.

Amazing! Very beneficial for my 5YO boxer, he went into the 3 week training (being shy and a bit rebellious) and came out a very well behaved dog. I'm very grateful I found them and very thankful to Oscar for the training he's provided not only to my baby but also to me. Highly recommend Barks 5th Avenue. Great experience from the first time I requested info to the time the hand over happened. Grooming and daycare was also very good. Chowder will definitely be visiting daycare there and next is puppy training for my boxer. Old dogs can learn new tricks!

Misty & Wayne did their first session with my dog Bailey on last Saturday and the results have been good. I am very surpised and pleased at the amount of change in my puppy already after just one lesson. She is more controlled and the tips that they left me with really work. We have been working daily since they left and the progress is very clear. We had went to a treat-based puppy training class at a local kennel that taught her commands that she only responded to with treats and totally ignored if treats weren't invoked. After one session, she is responding without treats. I'm impressed! Can't wait to get a few additional classes under my belt.

Have required services from The Bark Resort many times. Grooming, Boarding, and Training purposes. The first time we contacted them we were in desperate need of help for our very large Labrador. He was very aggressive towards other dogs and had issues with meeting new people. Thanks to Tammy and The Bark Resort we can now introduce him to other dogs with few worries that he will hurt them. This was 3 years ago and since then we have brought other dogs of ours for training as well as boarding and grooming many times.

Michael is the dog whisperer! I rescued Julie from the Houston SPCA on July 22nd after getting her home we quickly looked at each other like what have we gotten ourselves into? This pound puppy is cra cra! She was an owner surrender then adopted and quickly returned to the shelter because “she was to hyper” my husband and I made a promise to Julie that she was a good girl deep inside and we wouldn’t give up until we helped her find that good dog behavior we both just knew she had it in her! We took her to the vet and put her on m do for her sever anxiety issue that helped she calmed down but she was still clueless to any basic commands. I decided to look for a trainer to work with Julie for the behavior and anxiety issues we were seeing. I found Stealth K9 and contacted him asking about the cost for board and train. His quote was hundreds cheaper than the rest and his reviews were great he was very responsive I hired him right away! He came and picked Julie up the same day Within 4 hours of reaching out for help. When he arrived Julie did not like him at all because she didn’t know him, she actually bit him out of fear within minutes of him meeting her, that didn’t phase him at all! He was persistent with her and before he even left the house with Julie he had her healing next to him on the leash! He was there for less than 30 min. My husband was blown away. I get daily updates on Julie but after only 3 days of training he sent me a video of Julie’s progress I was in shock completely blown away. Julie loved him she was 100% fixated on him! She was already doing sit stay, heal sit and she was doing it with major noise distractions. He was using positive reinforcement by pet and praise no treats I love this style! I want my dog to perform her commands all the time not only for food. Michael and his team of trainers work day and night training the dogs. Julie has had multiple different trainers all day long so she is taught to take the commands from everyone not just 1 person she has shown no further aggression not even with new trainers she hasn’t worked with yet or doesn’t know. There aren’t enough words to express how great everyone has been with my Julie girl! I am so grateful that I found Michael and he is making it possible for me to fulfill our promise to Julie that we will never give up on her or take her back to the shelter we promised to get her the help she needs and we absolutely have.

Mike and Missy are phenomenal. I left my 9 month old German shepherd with them for about 3-4 hours, and in that time alone, he had already progressed with Bishop by him not barking vigorously, pulling on the leash, or misbehaving. The reason I brought Bishop to train is because he was getting older, bigger, & stronger. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to control him. But Mike works with us both. He examines the relationship between the both of me & Bishop to better train Bishop for me. They also have land for bishop to roam, & I live in an apartment in Houston, so Bishop does not get to do that often! Mike invited me to come visit whenever I could so he could also teach me how to handle Bishop. He's doing basic training right now, but I already know I'll be bringing Bishop back for further training. What I really like about Prairie Kennles is that I'm getting my money's worth. I promise you will not be disappointed with their work.

I went out of town for a few days and hired Carmen to dog sit for me. She did an outstanding job taking care of my puppies Kijo and Zoey. She was very professional and did exactly as I asked. She even sent videos and pictures and regularly updated me on what's going on. I will definitely hire her again. My doggies love her! Thank you Carmen! 😊

Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!

Britney has been my go-to trainer for the past year with all of our rescue dogs. She is very patient working with each other their personalities and we love the fact she uses positive reinforcement, not shock collars or anything of the sort other trainers quoted us using. She also has been helping guide us through the process of finding the right Service Dog prospect and owner-training legally. We definitely recommend her for all our dog training needs, whether in person or through Skype/Facetime when she's not in our area!

Annie is great: loves our animals, gives them love plus the training/feedback that they need, and always leaves notes for us on what has been accomplished! Whether just a day walk, or a three-day weekend, she is responsible, communicative, and reliable. Big plus: she is great with older animals, and we have an aging pack...

Bobbye had my dog performing right a way and showed myself and dog walker the same. She is pleasure to work with and explains why we do and don't do certain things. Training humans is harder than dogs.

I've had the pleasure of working with Dallas to help train my puppy in the past. She always came prepared, and tailored each session to the specific needs for myself and my furry friend. She set manageable expectations, was punctual and consistent. I love that her approach is one based on reward to help with training. It is very clear that she loves what she does, as it showed through her communication, patience and connection with myself and my dog.

I can not say enough about how AWESOME Sheena is when it comes to training your dog. We have a Cane Corso and she is the best. I love her climb command. Several times I have had a contractor or someone come in and they had no ideal she was even there. One guy asked me if she was real because she had been so still and quiet. I can have a house full of kids running around and if I put her in a down command or climb she never leaves that command. I never knew how great it is to have a well behaved dog. Shenzi walks so well on her leash heeling perfectly. If you are having any issue with your dog or need any kind of training. I highly recommend Sheena. I took Shenzi in to be groomed at a pet store and everyone in there was complimenting on how well behaved she is. The owner wanted to know who my trainer was so she could send some of her clients to her. No matter where we go I always get compliments on her behavior. Love Love Love what she has done for Shenzi and our family. Thank You Sheena!!!

    Typically I don't post feedback for services like this. However, after the incredible training Lindsay provided for my 2yr old Aussie, Sebastian, I felt compelled to write something. I heard really great things about Loose Leash through a friend of mine and figured I would give them shot since prices were better than dog training facilities I researched around town and Lindsay was CPDT certified. I brought in my dog because I was having trouble with him getting too excited and jumping on people coming to my house, and he wouldn't come when called. Within minutes of working with Lindsay, she had my dog sitting next to me instead of jumping all over the place. Not long after that she had him coming from across the yard when called. I was amazed at how quickly Lindsay got my dog to respond! After a few more training sessions, Sebastian was a completely different dog! I highly recommend Loose Leash.

    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.
