Tara C. says, "Both of my dogs loved both ladies and were extremely responsive to their lessons. The main reason I originally sought out help was because one of my dogs, Charlie, was resource guarding. We discerned that it was fear based (she’s partially blind and disabled). We put together a plan to negate any unnecessary aggression she was showing in regard to the resource guarding, and were also given awesome and smart solutions (that never would have occurred to me!) and she has shown incredible improvement! I’m so happy with our results. Not only did they work with Charlie on those issues, but they helped us work with our other dog, Bennie, as well. In just a few visits, they both learned: park it, down/down stay, leave it, drop it, “get back”, come, and my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE, wait at the door. Among other tips and tricks. They both no longer dart or charge out the front door. And they learned that so quickly! I cannot recommend TDS Canine Solutions highly enough. They were super pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and funny to boot. They incorporated and taught my 8-year-old daughter amazingly as well. It really was a training course for the whole family. They tailored everything to our needs, lifestyle, dog (dis)abilities and personality types. You won’t be disappointed."See more

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.   

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Andie came over with a wealth of knowledge that I needed to understand my dogs and the effective way to train them. She provided me with written material that I could refer back to. Answered all my questions. I am a better dog owner now.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Priceless Training! I can not thank Felicity and Teresa enough. As a first time dog mom I felt lost on how to control my rescue dog Pearl! I had been struggling with reactivity, leash pulling and barking for 6months until I called them for help.😩 They taught me how to communicate with Pearl's fearful response with positive feedback and corrections. Also they brought their dogs and kids to help desensitize Pearl. I really appreciate how much effort they go into to help. Fast forward to now. I can do things I never thought were possible! Farmers markets, Lowes, coffee shops, parks. I can give Pearl a life she deserves because of Felicity and Teresa. Truely amazing people and I couldn't have done it without them. If you're looking to train your dog they are the dynamic duo for you!

We have just had our first of five training sessions this morning. Lynette is absolutely delightful to work with! She definitely knew just how to approach our 1 year old Labrador, Blue. I am very excited to continue our training. I feel confident that, with Lynette's help, we will teach Blue the manners that will improve her reputation with others and make our life together most enjoyable. We LOVE this dog like crazy, but would prefer to maintain our sanity!!!!!! So thankful to have found a trainer who cares and understands the best way forward!

I have a small breed dog and have had a difficult time finding a trainer. The moment I talked to Net's Happy Pets I knew she had the skill set to help me with my sweet little guy. She came to our home and I instantly felt like I had finally found someone knowledgeable, kind, non judgemental, and truly has a love of animals.
