Kim has been excellent to work with, she is very knowledgeable and flexible with any situation. Kim’s ability to adjust to any dog and their owners personalities is amazing. She doesn’t just teach your dog, but she teaches you as an owner to be a good teacher and leader for your dog. She has been great for us and our Harley. Training is never done for you and your dog and Kim goes above and beyond just the training class. Thank you Kim!

We all, including the puppy, have LOVED working with Solomon's Dog Training. Leanne was always very easy to schedule appointments with, always was on time and ready to get to work with us. Her suggestions and exercises were extremely effective. After just our first session with her we immediately noticed differences in our puppy's behavior and started to be complimented on her obedience. 10 weeks later we still are practicing all the exercises and the puppy is doing fantastic -- in addition to basic obedience she is also walking off leash, respecting boundaries, and showing off multiple tricks. She was always very observant of our puppy's mood and taught her and us just enough to be manageable for practice until our next session. We never felt overwhelmed or underwhemed by the amount of exercise or "homework". We also responded very well to the way Leanne explained dog brain and why/how certain things were effective or not; we truly learned as much as the puppy did. We would recommend Leanne over and over again, and couldn't be more happy about our decision to work with her!

When my husband and I adopted our second dog in February 2017, we pretty much immediately began looking for a trainer. (He is a 4-year-old male, fixed, lab mix.) While Winstons wasn't the least expensive, they certainly appeared to have the best training and training that we wanted. We had it narrowed down to two places and went with Winsrons because the other place stated they did not do obedience training. Now, I'm not a professional trainer, but it's also not like I'm a slave driver so I felt our dog should at least be able to sit and come when told to and so on. With our dog being so new to us, we ultimately decided on the boot camp offered.. I'll admit that time was tough, even though we'd only had him for about a month before, so it was really great to get the video updates on his training. Jameson was a whole different dog when we picked him up and I do mean that in a good way. He still loved people and playing of course, but now he understood that he didn't have to try micro-managing every little thing and wasn't choking himself pulling on walks! On top of that, winston has been awesome with working with us on payments since we definitely couldn't pay for it right out. The thing we feel is the best though, is that our dog will be trained for life. (As long as we keep up on it of course.)The amazing trainer Mikayla does such a good job working with you and your dog one-on-one and even came to our house to try working through some things that seemed to be territory-related. The group classes are an amazing way to get a quick touch up or work on tougher difficulties that might arise as dogs are always changing, learning, and growing just like us. Thank you so much to everyone!

We are so pleased with Jasmine at Redemption Dog Training. Her expertise was obvious from the moment we met for our first session with our little King Charles Cavalier, Fletcher. It was very apparent that Jasmine could read our dog and also read us well. She was able to very quickly after a day of working with him and meeting with us, pinpoint his problem and more importantly teach us about the confusion that we gave to him as to how he should behave. Our greatest concern was barking at the door, but we quickly learned the greater problem for him was learning about boundaries and his space. We learned to read him for signals, learning non-verbal communication. After one week of boot camp in our home, which was something I was dreading, it turned out to be very easy for him and us. We all learned from the experience in a positive and gentle but firm way and he understood very quickly the boundaries that we set in place and that he needed permission to go in places in the home and to do certain things. He was much calmer, not barking outside as much and inside and after two more sessions in our home, he is very quickly learning to sit and stay when the doorbell rings and we open the door. He does have the occasional setback with the door but we are continuing to apply the tools that Jasmine gave us through patience and consistency. I can recommend her and have already referred some friends to her for assistance with their dog. In a way we are sad the training is over, but are anxious to participate in the unlimited socialization and ongoing support.

I was in need of service dog training for my puppy and they came to our home within 24 hours, explained the process, cost and commitment required by me. I was very impressed and Axel will begin training when he is 8 weeks old. He will be trained as a psychiatric service dog. I am now aware that it will be a long process but with their help, expertise and guidance he will be done in approximately 18 months!

Innovative K9 Academy is incredible. I have a very intense Belgian Malinois that I do not trust to board with anyone but David. Not only can I travel without worrying about the welfare of my dog, but Sammy is receiving the best training you can find. I refuse to use anyone but Innovative K9 Academy for training and boarding our dog. If anyone needs to board their dog, or needs help training your K9 I highly recommend Innovative K9 Academy no matter what challenges you have with your dog.

Working with Tiffany was such a breeze. She was very proactive with arranging the initial date to meet me and my pup. The day of our first meeting we so informative and productive. She even saved my pup from another dog who escaped his yard, and gently led that dog back home and shut the gate behind him, ensuring the safety of both that dog and my own! I will highly recommend her training to any dog owner who needs specialized one-on-one training. I can't wait to watch my dog continue to grow throughout this training process. Thank you so much Tiffany😁🐶😁

Great Place! Great People! When I was searching for a dog training school I was searching for the best and I'm glad I found it. I looked around and I found a couple dog training schools in the area. When I first got a quote from Dan got my attention because his prices were below the others around the area. So I decided to do my homework, I picked the top 5 dog training schools and I visited each of them and let me tell as soon I got to Dan's property I new that was the perfect place for my dogs. Beautiful property with big open space for the dogs to run and play. Other dog school were like in a warehouse buildings which I didn't like. The dogs were locked all the time they not even see the sun, that was like a dog prison. I was looking for a place where my dog get train but also have fun. By the end of the training Dan did a demo to show us what my dogs learned and let me tell you they were totally different, very well behave dogs, they looked happy, they love Dan and his dogs, they had tons of fun while they were in training, Dan sent me an update of their training 1-2 times per week, pictures and videos etc... We are very happy we choose the right place for our dogs. If you are looking for a place to get your Dogs trained and have fun at the same time VMS Shepherds & Dog Training is the way to go. We highly recommend them. Thanks Dan for helping us to have a good relationship with our dogs, they are doing fantastic! Sincerely, Karl Campbell

I wish I could put into words the amazing talent that Ty and Joe and the rest of the staff at CommuniCanine possess. Both trainers are compassionate and passionate about the work they do. They BELIEVE in their work and want all dogs and owners to have an amazing and healthy relationship. They desire for dogs to be happy in any environment and show owners how to make that environment safe and happy for the dog and all family members. I've had help with three dogs now. Two have now passed and I'm having them help me train my third Rottweiler. They are fun and group trainings are super fun and the dogs LOVE them! The first dog Ty helped me with was a 3 year old Rottie whose owner had passed away. He came to us anxiety ridden and almost was not able to function. Within a week after implementing the advice from Ty, Barney was stable, happy, and anxiety free. It was amazing. I've come to see the same positive response with my other dogs I've had. You cannot go wrong with working with CommuniCanine. Every staff member is amazing and will do whatever it takes to help you train your dog so your relationship with your companion will be rewarding. (P.S. No I'm not a staff member or related to any of the owners or staff. This is my own personal opinion of an amazing company.)

I am a seasoned dog handler who adopted a 8 mo.old Wein/lab cross. After 3 weeks, I was about to take the new pup back to the pound due to his over re activeness and vicious biting. Tracie came immediately because I was so distraught. Tracie was able to make a difference in just 2 hours. We have private lessons scheduled for the next 6 weeks. The pup has changed from a total unmanageable maniac into something more livable. I look forward with great anticipation to our next sessions. I do recommend her highly.

MVP Dog Training is the best! My 2 year old Border Collie had become very leash aggressive with other dogs and thanks to Alicia, I finally feel like I'm on the right track. I no longer feel like I have to hide Cooper from society because I'm afraid he is going to lose his mind at every little distraction. I will be recommending MVP Dog Training to everyone I know. Her prices were much more competitive than the other quotes I received through Thumbtack, and my experience with Alicia has been amazing. So thankful to have found Alicia and MVP Dog Training!

I have seen Andrew work with my dogs and others. He is very caring for each dog he works with and handles them to suit their needs individually. My dogs can now walk off leash, our puppy who did the board and train program is better potty trained than our 3 year old dog. In my opinion, Andrew and Premier Canine Companion should be anyone's choice for training their pooch.

My Aussie Finn was so shy meeting new people! He's made leaps and bounds since training with Paige! He is a much happier dog now that we both have the tools to deal with his anxiety. We also did a little agility, loose leash training, place, stay, etc. I definitely recommend her as a trainer! She's great!

I was amazed at what he did with my dog on the first session. My dog was barking and lunging at other dogs and in one session he fixed it! I had a bunch of other things that I needed to do to maintain that but I was really impressed! He is really good with the dogs and reading the messages they are sending. He’s a dog whisperer!

I have a young Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix. He is an extremely playful and energetic dog, however he took out most of his energy through biting and "herding" us. He had extreme aggression that was uncontrollable. I had no other choice than to call Alpha Dog Training. I got an appointment the very next day! It was an extremely reasonable price compared to competitors. Not only that, but within a few hours after my training session, my dogs behavioral issues had immediately started to go away! I would strongly recommend to anyone with having troubles with their dog.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
