Kaci is amazing with dogs. She has been training dogs and teaching people how to properly handle their dogs for quite some time. Don't let her youthfulness fool you! She knows her stuff! Kaci has always had patience to make sure my young daughter understood what she was teaching her about her dog. My daughter even won an award for handling thanks to Kaci and her expertise! She shows compassion for all animals and is driven to continue to be the exceptional trainer that she already is.

I dropped my Dalmation ( Chief ) off at 14 weeks with Wheatland Dog Center for a 20 day training program. The owner Kayla kept me updated on his progress along the way, sending videos and pictures to show how well he was doing. When I picked Chief up, Kayla gave a demonstration of how she trained Chief and showed me how to work with him. It has been almost a month since I got my pup back and he is still doing great. I've had to contact Wheatland Dog Center a few times for helpful pointers along the way, Kayla was great with explaining ways I could resolve the issues that I had. I will definitely be sending any dogs I get to Wheatland Dog Center in future.

Dustin has given me reports every time I have asked about preacher, my 3 y/o male black lab. He is very honest about what he is doing well and also what he is struggling with and then he can explain what he will do to correct the problem and get preacher to push though to the next level. Very pleased

Besides being courteous, understanding, and professional, Jalena is an excellent, experienced dog trainer. I learned after meeting Jalena that she has a gluten intolerance which led her to this field of work, and because of this, she is very passionate about working with people and dogs alike. I've watched as rambunctious "wild" dogs learn to be obedient members of the family. She has a huge heart and is a joy to work with!

I do part-time and full-time sitting while the client is on vacation or at work. I also offer caregiving for the elderly and/or babysitting. I love animals as I have many of my own. I have also worked for a vet for a couple of years. I would feed, water, walk, and play with your furry babies and give complete care and love.

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.
