Butch is amazing. My dog had severe fear angression and has a bite history. After being with Butch for several weeks, my dog is no longer aggressive and loves meeting new people. Not only did Butch work with my dog pertaining to his aggression, he also taught him skills and I'll continue to see Butch in the future for further training. If you dog needs help with aggression or obedience, K9 Kountry is the place to go! Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Maury did an excellent job with our dog. There are so many dog trainers out there we were not sure who to go with, but after only 1 week of training, we can see a huge difference. Maury loves the dogs he trains, and always wants a chance to see pictures of our dog. His 2 follow appointments are so helpful as well.

Lisa K9 Kids helped me with basic training for my one year old beagle, Fritz. I had seven private sessions with Lisa at various locations. I like the way sessions were taylored for the needs of my pet and worked around my schedule. What I really like about Lisa K9 is that her training is based on building a relationship with your pet. My dog Fritz has learned so much. I would definitely recommend Lisa K9 Kids to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

Stephanie was fantastic with Crown. He was a little nipping puppy that wanted to chew on everything AND everyone in the house before she came out for our 1st session and now he's a well behaved little boy (some of it is still a work in progress but the progress with only 3 sessions is INCREDIBLE). My husband and I decided to use Walk of Life Dog Training because of Stephanie's flexibility with our schedule - we both work long hours and don't always have congruent time off and Stephanie was willing to figure out a time that worked best for the both of us! Crown, our puppy, absolutely LOVED his time with her and it was amazing to see how expanding his mind through training was eliminating the unwanted behavior that we'd experienced prior to training with Stephanie. Additionally, she is so incredibly kind and just wants to make sure that your life with your dog is as happy as possible! We would absolutely recommend Stephanie and Walk of Life Dog Training to anyone that's interested in getting their dog trained - puppy or not, I know Stephanie can teach you some tricks and effectively address any concerns you have with your pup! Thanks a bunch!

Nicole is an outstanding dog trainer! When we adopted two shelter dogs of different ages two months ago, we didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into! We decided to bring Nicole in to help refine our dog's behaviors and help them settle into their new home quickly. Nicole's approach is both gentle and consistent. She also provided great tips along the way for things we can do going forward as our dogs' training becomes more advanced. Communication was always clear and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. All of us, dogs included, miss seeing her every weekend. She was truly a joy to work with! We highly recommend Nicole to all of our family and friends, and the minute we decide our dogs are ready for more advanced training, Nicole is who we will call! Thank You NICOLE!!! :-)

I initially chose Zoom Room to enroll my 8 week old puppy into puppy preschool for socialization and basic obedience. This was the best decision! Heather is great and my puppy just passed his AKC S.T.A.R. puppy test! He will now be moving on to puppy obedience and we will definitely keep coming back here! There is outstanding agility equipment here and my puppy loves learning the agility course mixed in with his obedience training! A great way to keep them engaged and learning and also super fun for the owners too! I highly recommend coming to Zoom Room for your dog/puppy training needs! We will keep coming!

I have a grumpy Chihuahua, but Michele showed no fear. After playing fetch with him he warmed up to her and she was able to clip his nails! I'm very impressed with the way she handled my aggressive dog with ease and patience. She is now someone I use regularly.

Tim is great! We've met with him twice now and made a plan for six appointments to grt our dog well trained. Every time we meet with him I can see the changes in the dogs behavior, and then as we practice the training in between sessions the dog is better and better!

We are blown away with the progress of our rescued Border Collie puppy. The trainers at TDS Canine Solutions took our fear agressive 6-month old to a well behaved puppy in just 5 weeks. We could not be more impressed with their style and results. Loving traing that not only taught our puppy how to behave, but professional expertise that taught us how to raise this sweet boy. We are forever grateful. By the way, we've had more than 10 dogs in the past, but simply couldn't figure out how to deal with with fear agression. This team knows their stuff!

I came to Copilot Academy with our 5 month old Aussie/Blue Heeler mix named Roxy. She was CRAZY to the point that she barked at everything that moved, living or non-living. I couldn’t even go on a walk with her which frustrated me immensely. I booked private lessons with Natalie and after 6 month my dog was completely transformed. I love how well behaved Roxy is now whether it is on leash and off leash. I also appreciate that Copilot Academy’s trainers are honest, non-judgemental and supportive in every possible way. It was money well spent!

Bill was great! We met with Bill for a 6-week period, at our home and at a Park. We rescued a dog who was aggressive to other dogs, but otherwise "sweet as pie." Bill helped us get to know Zack and learn how to communicate with him to get the best response from him. We completed the basic class, but we all agreed that we would meet again for advanced training when the weather was cooler. We look forward to working with Bill again soon. We highly recommend Bill to anyone who is looking for an excellent dog trainer.

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.
