Kenny is an amazing trainer. He helped to teach not only my puppy all the things he needs to be successful, but also to help teach what my girlfriend and I need to know in order to correct and train our puppy. I would most definitely recommend him to any one looking for a dog trainer. We will 100% be back to get more lessons from Kenny.

Kevin is a great trainer. We had our two dogs trained while we were on vacation for 3 weeks. We were a little hesitant at first because of our past experience with a previous kennel. Kevin explained his training to us and assured us that they would be in good hands. With the updated emails every few days and the ability to see our dogs at any time of the day, we knew we were in good hands with Aloha Canine Development Center. Our dogs came back trained, and now we have a good base to grow from. I would recommend his service to anyone I know, and I’ll definitely use Aloha for future kennel stays and training.

Three years ago, I had a dog with whom I knew not what to do. She bit people and was regularly attacking my other dogs. One trainer told me she was so aggressive that my best option was euthanasia. Thankfully, Christie found me and after six months of extensive, intensive, patient and positive training, I had a model dog who amazes me every day. Since then, I've taken a dozen unadoptable dogs from The Humane Society to Christie and with her help found new homes for all of them. Your money will be well spent and you will have new dog that you can show off with pride.

Kris is awesome! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I got my dog, Apollo, almost a year ago at the age of a year and a half. He was the easiest dog at the beginning, did everything I asked. A few months ago, Apollo, started to challenge me on everything, going on walks became impossible because he was so hyper. Then he became aggressive or at least I thought he was. When we'd walk, he'd try to attack any walker, biker, or runner that came near me. He started to growl and act like he was going to attack anyone that would come into my house. It got to the point, I was about to take him back to the pet shelter I got him at. I was terrified he'd bite someone and then he'd be put down. I was pretty against professional dog training, as I've heard horror stories from friends of spending a large sum of money with no results. After a very close encounter of Apollo almost biting a girl renting a room in my house for the weekend, I gave in and thats when I met Kris. Kris came to my house for a free two hour evaluation with Apollo, in which he got to know Apollo, I told him about the struggles, and then we went on a walk. Kris showed me several training techniques even during the elevation. He cares far more about helping your dog and you build a stronger relationship, in which both parties are happier, than just getting his money for the training. Kris is very passionate about what he does, which helps create a fun, exciting, training environment. I have never felt stupid for not knowing how to handle my own dog, or for asking questions, even if I had to ask the same one several times. Kris doesn't just take your dog and train him, he involves you, the owner, a great deal. This helps me a lot, because I didn’t know anything about how to train a dog before this. Kris will give me pointers, or explain why Apollo is acting a certain way when I do something. I feel very lucky that I have a dog trainer who is not only patient with Apollo, but so amazing at training me on how to train my dog. Kris is truly amazing at what he does, and seeing his connection with animals is extraordinary. I’m telling you, if you want to see immediate improvements hire Kris. I highly recommend not waiting to contact him, with his results his services will be in high demand soon. Thank you Kris, I can’t tell you how much it means to me that Apollo is such an obedient, loving dog now, our relationship/connection is so strong, it’s incredible.

I love Austin Dog Zone! My dog, a Basenji named Loki, has some anxiety issues. After adopting him for the local shelter, it soon became apparent that I would need some help. He was scared of everything: dogs, people, noises, and even things I couldn't see or hear. I turned to Austin Dog Zone for help with this, especially his on-leash reactivity. The moment we met trainer Caitlin Lane I was impressed, she obviously knew what she was doing. Over the course of four private lessons at my home she taught me everything I needed to know to help Loki with his anxiety. 2 and a half years later and Loki and I can go to the park and meet other people and dogs worry-free! I genuinely believe Caitlin is the best dog trainer in Austin. She's naturally good with dogs, she's extremely knowledgeable (I've never had a question that she couldn't answer), and she's infinitely patient. I really like that she focuses not only on training the dogs, but on teaching the owner what they need to progress without her. I've only met fellow ADZ trainer Reed Morgan once, but after talking with her I was very confident she was of similar caliber. Megan Sartori came on board after I moved to Dallas, but I have no doubts she's great. Finally, Laura Neiheisel is always friendly, helpful, and quick to respond over email. I know she does a ton of work behind the scenes, but in addition to that she's a fantastic liaison for the company. To sum up, Caitlin and ADZ have had a lasting impact on my life and the life of my dog. I'm so grateful for all their help!

    Julie is without a doubt, one of the *best* trainers out there. She's firm and direct, and rewards them with praise and belly rubs to their hearts' content. I would say that when your dogs see their trainer, and start jumping and wagging tails ... it's a good sign. We wouldn't trust our girls with anyone else.

    I think this company does so much more then leave me with confidence that my dog is safe while I'm traveling but also the compassion and dedication to helping and improving my dogs life with in the household as well as in public!! I have so much more fun now knowing that my dog is being trained properly and in a humane manner then others trainers use. My dog is still learning things but I'm glad I use Darling Pet sitting and training to help me in pet sitting stays and to train my dog.

    My wife and I lead busy lives. We work downtown and wait for the sun to go down to walk Jake. He would lunge at other dogs and bark at people. With a baby on the way, it couldn't go on like this forever. Hunter was flexible with our crazy schedule and once a week took Jake out of our hands for a few hours. He's now totally relaxed in the crate when we have company and learned how to walk next to a baby stroller. We feel like professional trainers walking Jake in the daytime since he looks to us for guidance now each time he spots a dog. We've learned a lot about what Jake needed from us and it's changed the way we will own dogs in the future.

    My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with our experience with Top Dog. Our dog Penny had developed some major behavioral issues - barking at strangers, jumping up, and not coming when called. Megan not only turned Penny into an obedient, dream dog, she also gave us the tools to continue her training at home. Worth every penny (no pun intended).

    I'm very please with Sit Means Sit Dog Training in Belton, TX. The communication was excellent and I noticed results within one week of training with my dog Leo. The training is easy to learn and the group classes help my dog learn at a faster pace with the distraction of other dogs. I found that in targeting my dog's intelligence we have a stronger connection and we can both help each other. Robin has been amazing also, as have the other trainers! Thank you Sit Means Sit!

    We have been depending on Kim and his expertise for over 10 years. Our dog Sadie has anxiety issues, but the personal attention she receives during "training" sessions with Kim has allowed us to continue to travel with confidence and peace of mind. Now that Sadie is older Kim's personal care is even more critical for her comfort and ours! Thank you, KIM!!!

      Good job to Amy!! She's been running my dogs off and on for the past 8 months and I love the fact that I don't have to worry about them while at work, or if I take a short vacation out of town. Boxer and Tina get plenty of exercise when I'm away -- twice a day! It's that time of the year for me -- VERY busy -- and it's one less thing that I have to worry about if I'm on a business trip. I also have Amy come over to walk them around the noon hour so they're not inside for 9-10 hrs while at work. The best thing is that both Boxer and Tina seem to be more relaxed when I come home from work. They're behaving much better in the apartment and when I take them on walks! It's a win-win with less stress on them, and me!! Amy is GREAT with both of my dogs and really cares about the well being of animals in general! If you're in need of pet services -- I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AMY'S JOGGIN DOGS!!

        Jennifer has been Jamie's trainer for over a year. Her knowledge, guidance and passion have brought Jamie from a scared shelter dog to a therapy dog. If it wasn't for Jennifer, we wouldn't have known how to handle Jamie's delicate timid, reluctant, needy, anxiety personality. I wouldn’t trust Jamie with anyone other than Jennifer St. John. Thank you Jennifer for your commitment and love for Jamie.

          About

          I specialize in "bully breeds", but work great with all dogs. I do basic training, including walking on a loose leash, down, sit and stay, tricks, socializing, etc. At the end of the course, your dog does get a diploma if they pass the exam. I have never had a dog fail. I use only positive reinforcement, and also do agility courses and even boarding once your dog has passed. I also love my felines!!!! I do have 8 years in aviary too!!! I have worked with every bird...big or small (from cockatiels to macaws).

            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.
