Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does dog training typically cost?

The average cost of dog training ranges from $60 to $155 per hour. But, your dog’s training might cost more or less depending on a number of different factors. For example, you might pay less if you schedule group classes instead of private instruction. The type of training (aggressive behavior, basic obedience, off-leash training, etc.) could have different prices as well.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a dog trainer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Utilize as many digital means as necessary when setting up appointments or consultations with dog trainers near you during the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, the best way to begin is by conducting a search for dog trainers online. Compare services side by side, and ask each dog trainer you contact if it’s possible to schedule a consultation or appointment completely virtually. During this time, you should also discuss strategies for completing training and payments through digital means.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a dog trainer when social distancing?

Current CDC guidelines state, “Do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household.” It also explains that more studies are needed to understand if and how animals could be affected by the virus that causes COVID-19 and how this might affect human health.

If you’re uncomfortable with hiring a dog trainer right now, you can reach out to dog trainers in your area to see if they will let you book an appointment in the future when social distancing guidelines are lifted. Or, ask if they offer virtual or remote services.

If you do decide to hire a pro to train your dog in person, limit any physical contact with the trainer. Stay 6 feet apart, sanitize items and surfaces, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.   

What do professional dog trainers do?

Dog trainers can perform a range of activities, ranging from training law enforcement dogs to working with therapy dogs or search-and-rescue dogs. However, most people hire dog trainers for obedience training. This is largely a process of training the human — much of how a dog interprets our behaviors, commands, tone and body language is counterintuitive at first. The trainer will typically come to your home to observe your relationship with your dog, teach you how to train a command and give you guidance for reinforcing it.

Is it ever too late to start training a dog?

It’s never too late to train your dog — “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is a myth. Whether you adopt an older dog from the shelter or simply want to have a better relationship with your elderly dog, hiring a dog trainer can be a good investment.

Is dog training worth the money?

Dog training can be a highly rewarding investment for most dog owners. With dog training, you can establish a better, healthier relationship with your dog, who will learn to understand your commands and wishes. Your frustration levels may decrease, and you might be able to resume activities you’ve put off, such as having people over or taking your dog to public places (though, this is hard to guarantee because each dog is unique). 

Just remember that no amount of dog training will pay off if you don’t practice and follow the directions the dog trainer gives you. Consistency is the most important factor.

Can I use digital payments to pay for dog training?

Many professional dog trainers accept digital payments instead of cash or check. One effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is that it is encouraging companies and services to onboard digital platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo and Square Cash as a means of curbing virus transmission risk.

When you contact dog trainers near you, ask if they’ll accept digital payments. This information is also typically available on their online profiles.

How can I find out if a dog trainer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines on essential services are constantly being updated by local and federal government agencies. To see which services qualify as essential COVID-19 service providers, start with your city or state’s government website.

A reliable list of federal guidelines is available on CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.  .

Does a dog trainer need to enter my home?

Depending on the type of dog training you need, a dog trainer may need to enter your home. Many behaviors that need to be corrected are associated with the dog being in the house. However, some types of training can take place virtually or even outside while observing safe social distancing practices.

Start by asking dog trainers in your area if they’ll perform a video consultation instead of an in-person one, and ask if they need to enter your home.

Do dog trainers offer remote or virtual services?

Although dog training is traditionally performed in person, the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused some professional dog trainers to move to remote training and virtual services. You can contact dog trainers near you to ask about the possibility of remote or virtual services. Also, ask whether all aspects of the process can be digital, including payment.

Reviews for Euless dog trainers

Lauren was excellent with our dogs. We had one dog that was viciously attacking out other dog. Lauren used a training collar that immediately changed the dogs behavior. She was very knowledgeable about what mix our dogs breeds were. She offered some very helpful suggestions that we will follow up on in the future.

I had an out of control Great Pyrennes puppy. Lots of barking, knocking son over, causing mischief, etc. It was getting to the point I had to do something or find a new home for him. I was losing my sanity and patience. I hired Maury at We Train Dogs to take my dog for the two week board training. After bringing Monty home, I swore they sent me home with the wrong dog. He was much calmer and was so much more manageable. He now is the dog I was hoping to have. I can't thank Maury enough for giving me back my sanity and home. I still have things that come up but Maury is a phone call away and has given me the tools that I need to work thru the problems. Thank you so much We Train Dogs!!!!

We dropped our dog, Benji, off Sunday afternoon. My main concern was Benji's aggressiveness toward other dogs. Butch, the owner of Cappel Canine, accessed Benji and agreed to work with him. BY WEDNESDAY, 3-4 days later, Butch called and said Benji was ready to go!! I decided to keep Benji "in Bootcamp" for the duration of the week just to be sure the correction of his aggressive behavior was reinforced. By the time we picked Benji up, he was so excited to see us (and ready to get home to his own environment). Butch personally showed me how to walk Benji and even put him in a situation of two new dogs to be trained for aggression. Those two dogs were who Benji USED to be. In lieu of Benji's past behavior, he actually walked past the aggressive dogs without confrontation!!!! WHOA!! WHAT?? BENJI BEHAVING????? Today, I took Benji out for his first walk in our neighborhood. The neighborhood dogs barked aggressively at Benji as we walked, but he kept his stance and did not react as he had in the past!! What a relief!! We will keep practicing each day. I am so impressed with Butch's training!! He's a great guy who understands dogs very well and they truly respond to him. I can't say enough good about Cappel Canine, Butch and his team. We left with a DVD showing how Butch worked Benji with his training and Butch's open door to come back if we ever have issues with Benji again! I am so happy I found Butch and his team! Thanks you guys for training our Benji to be exactly what we were looking for!! I can't say enough good words for the quality of work you do!

This was the best experience ever! My German Shepard Floyd went through the doggie boot camp and came back acting like a champion. This group really taught me the leadership qualities me and my boyfriend needed to be a better leaders to our dog. Highly recommend this training group to anybody! Thank you guys so much.

Joe introduced leash training to our 3 year old fairly well behaved dog and it has been a game changer for us. this concept has made walking her and taking her out so much easier. He also taught us how to get her out of the habit of jumping on people when we have company.
