We have been having problems with our dog being aggressive towards our baby, and these guys came in and told us their concerns as well as were 100% honest with us on whether he could be trained and fully trusted around the kids or not. We truly appreciate their advice and they definitely aren't out there just to take your money. Highly recommend them to anybody needing some help!!

Mike and family at barks 5th Avenue have changed our life with our german shepard. She was wild and we thought we were going to have to give her away. There training gave our dog fina....another chance to be truly a house dog with manners. I can't thank them enough they are truly professional dog trainer. I would recommend them to everyone....my friend also had his dog trained there with the same results. Once again if you need a referral to call me that is not a problem

They were very experienced & professional dog groomers as we talked about cut, skirt level, feathering etc on my English Cocker Spaniel. They are also obviously big dog lovers & took 2+ hours to bathe & groom him with great care. They transformed him into a gorgeous, tidy, well-groomed boy who looked fantastic. My husband & I are delighted with the results & the joy & happiness of my boy after the grooming process was great to see. Highly recommend them & they'll be back to groom him again.

We have 2 dogs, both are under 1 year, that were in desperate need for some obedience training. They basically ran the house and were both starting to become destructive and unruly. The fact that Nick would come to our house when it was convenient for us was awesome since the idea of dragging 2 dogs to a packed training class on work nights was not ideal. Nick suggested the use of both training collars and shock collars which have really helped in getting the dogs to behave and follow commands. Nick also helped me understand how my behavior was only making the dogs worse. One thing to keep in mind when hiring a dog trainer is that you are a big part of the training once the trainer leaves. We have been active in their training and are seeing dramatic results so far. Nick was always accommodating to our schedules, always on time and very professional.

Justin is THE BEST trainer with off-leash!! I just completed the four lessons of basic obedience with my 3 year old Standard Poodle. With Justin's quiet and confident persona, I can honestly recommend him and his methodology without hesitation. I was somewhat skeptical about the whole e-collar experience, the guarantee, etc., but all that Justin states on his website is true. I had a leash pulling and off-leash control problem that was easily remedied. Most important, my dog accepted the training and he now enjoys to heel (on or off leash) when out on a walk! Give Justin and his K9 Off-leash training your attention... with his knowledge and expertise of dogs/training, both you and your dog will be so thankful! (I only wish I had found him sooner.)

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.

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!

Karen was very helpful and prompt giving advice for a potential dog situation I was dealing with. I was very worried about introducing 2 dogs (one being very aggressive) and she gave me instructions on what to do and also products that would help.

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!!!

I used David's Dog Training for the training of our new puppy. When we first got our Miniature Schnauzer he was an absolute mess, jumping on guests, furniture, dragging us down the street, and uncontrollably excited all the time. After a 8 week session with David's Dog Training, he was controllable and walking (not pulling) on a leash. Most of his training, believe it or not, had more to do with us as the owners than with the dog. We were the ones who needed to step up and communicate with the dog. He is now content, controllable, sociable, and a very good boy. I honestly don't know what we would have done without his help. Thank you!

Randolph knows what he is talking about! I felt like he was very knowledgeable, understanding and really does care about dogs! I came to him for a consult and I left very impressed. He had great command of his own dog and seemed very comfortable with my own dog. He seems like a people person and a dog person! My dog has socialization issues with other dogs and I had trouble finding a trainer because he is considered a "giant breed". Randolph taught me a lot about the issues with my dog and presented me with different options for training (board and train & private sessions). My only issue is the cost. I will have to wait to begin training because the training will negatively affect my budget...more than expected.

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.
