I was very happy with Taylor and will continue to work with her. I'm always concerned having someone new come to my home which is busy with kids. She was able to work with me and my dog throughout the distractions that are typical for our household. She was also friendly and comfortable to be around. She helped me figure out things I can improve on and implement some new things to work on! I'm so excited 👍🏻

Bill has done such an amazing job with Aubrey! Before having him as my dog trainer, I thought that training my puppy was impossible. Aubrey was very disobedient, never listened when I called, aggressive with other dogs, and destroyed just about anything. I was running out of options, and considered giving my puppy away. K9 training was my last resort, and my best investment! Just a few days at Off Leash K9 training, and Aubrey transformed into new dog! He contacted me frequently about Aubrey's progress and was always happy to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend him to anyone with dog issues!

We could not be happier with the service that Marissa provided. Our dog started to have seizures and we needed someone to come to our house to trim her nails and shave her paws so that she could be more stable while standing. Marissa squeezed us into her schedule on a Saturday and did not hesitate about our dog's special needs. She was so gentle and sweet with our dog, and took her time so that she was comfortable. She bathed our dog and even put up with our 6 year old son talking/asking questions the whole time; she was just as sweet to him! Marissa brought all of her own supplies, including towels, and cleaned the tub and area where she worked when she was done. We feel so blessed to have found Marissa, she is the best!

What a great dog trainer! His experience and ongoing refresher training is exemplary. Great personal touch explaining his protocol and then our big sweet pit bull responded very well. She did very well in our first training and learned a lot. Couldn’t be happier.

We have a 9 month old French Mastiff who is a big big dog and we couldn’t even walk him because he was just tugging and impossible to manage. After his two weeks with Bill and Megan he was walking off leash and obeying several important commands. It’s like we have the dog we always dreamed of owning. Now we will have our French Bulldog go in and be transformed as well. Can’t wait to continue working with our dogs so we can all have the best relationship. Thank you Bulletproof!

My husband and I have been very happy to have found Janet Echavarry from A Better Dog Training, Inc. We had adopted a rescue dog back in March. The we decided to have him trained as well. Our dog Pistol Pete has been so great since we went through the training. He gets so excited every time Ms. Jan comes over to the house and now since the training is complete, knowing that we can contact her anytime, if we ever need anything or have any questions or concerns. She is wonderful and so helpful. We also take Pistol Pete over to spend time boarding with Ms. Jan for a few days to a week when we are out of town. We are very happy knowing he is being taken care of when we can't be home with him. She has the most clean environment for your pets and they all have a great space to run around and meet new friends. Every dog we saw there were so happy and comfortable in their own kennel. That made me happy knowing when we leave our dog there, he is kept comfortable, happy and spoiled in his air conditioned area and it was always clean!!! And it does not smell like a kennel in there and that really made me happy! If you are thinking about getting your pet trained, you could not pick a better person, or company to do this. We did our homework before choosing her. We contacted several other places in our area but was not happy with any of them and then Ms. Jan was recommended to us by our Vet's office. She came highly recommended and we are so glad we have her taking care of our dog. She is like family to us now and couldn't be happier with the professionalism and services she provides to her clients. So if you are in need of a wonderful, caring and loving person to take care of your pets or need them trained, you really need to check out Janet Echavarry from A Better Dog Training, Inc. You will be very satisfied that you did.

Glenda was very professional and responded to emails promptly. She asked questions to make sure she understood fully what I was needing help with and offered solid advice and a training plan to accomplish those goals. She was never late and provided great quality work. The issues I had with my dogs were resolved with Glenda's help. She uses only modern training methods of positive reinforcement rather than rely on shock collars, prong collars, or other punishments so I felt very comfortable with her around my dogs. This is unlike most trainers who want quick results through old methods of training at the cost of your relationship with your dogs.The cost of her training was very reasonable and the service she provided well exceeded the cost. She is a great trainer with tons of experience. She is patient and knows the best way to help you (or will direct you to someone who can if she cannot which is a huge indicator of the level of care she has for her job... she isn't just going to take every case just for the money, she really wants to help you out, even if its with someone else). She's incredible and you won't regret working with her.

About

I'll walk the animals in naturalistic places, like the disc golf course, Eisenhower trails, and common neighborhoods. I love to give treats and even dance or sit for them. Positive praise gets you farther than barking commands. I'm very squishy and huggable, and I let my dog and other animals sit on my lap for some special petting attention. If they need a bath, I can facilitate it. Also, I have plenty of squishy places for them to sit and rest and a backyard for them to bark and run around.

About

I love animals, and I know the owners are very busy with work and travel. I would be a great friend and will keep the dogs very busy. I would be playing and giving them a lot of attention.

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.
