Dog training. She's really good with dogs. She tells them something once and they know that command. Good at showing everyone individually how to get our dogs to do the commands for us.

Leanne is great! We thought we owned a stupid dog. After one session we learned that he's actually pretty smart and stubborn and his behavior changed immediately. We're so happy with the progress he's made because of Leanne's help. Highly recommend Solomon's Dog Training.

I had Winston and his team train our dog to be a service dog. We have had him for 4 years now and what a difference it has made in our daughters life. Working with Them was seemless, they are passionate and knowledgeable about their training. They are kind, helpful and amazing to work with. For any kind of dog training I would hands down ALWAYS use them!

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.

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😁🐶😁

Even though my issue was not a training issue, Mike took the time to visit with me and my dogs and gave me some advice on the problem I was having. He is caring with the dogs and they trusted him right away. I was very impressed with him and would recommend him to anyone who needs dog training, just by the way my dogs behaved around him.

These ladies are absolutely amazing!! Would highly recommend them! My babies (3 dogs and cats) absolutely adore them when they come over! One of my dogs is diabetic and it's hard to find anyone that is able to accommodate her schedule (and mine) as well as administer her medication!

    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!

    About

    Thank you for taking a serious interest in getting your dog on the right track through training! I would love the opportunity to be able to work with you and your furry friend during this process. My name is Amy Francis, and I am a professional dog trainer/owner of Paws Forward Dog Training. My methods are based on positive reinforcement training, because simply put -- it works! This approach teaches and encourages your dogs to make good conscious decisions on their own so that you don't have to be a constant reminder for them in the future. This puts the responsibility and pride in the owner's lap because your behavior has a direct attachment to theirs! I offer a custom course which would fit the needs that you list perfectly. I come to your home and teach you hands-on skills for how to manage or change your dog's behavior. We also go in-depth on dog psychology and theory because I feel that it is absolutely crucial for all owners to understand their dogs both inside and out. My initial lesson is $200 which also includes free e-mails and phone calls for the life of the dog. All lessons after that are an hour long for $80/session. It is entirely up to you if you decide that you need more lessons or not. I want to make sure that I am a resource for all of the my clients -- even after I am gone! I train from Mondays to Fridays and am pretty flexible on the times depending on the week. Training needs to be fun for both owners and dogs alike! I feel so honored to be able to witness dog-handler relationships blossom once the gap of communication is understood and bridged through positive reinforcement training. I feel a passion for people just as much as I do dogs and couldn't imagine dipping my feet into a more rewarding career.

    About

    I have been working with animals for 12 years on a volunteer basis. The program that I use now is brand new and improved, and no one else in the dog training industry has it in their position yet. It is not only a better more loving problem but I have found it is more efficient during training. Not only do I work one on one with the animals, I work with their families as well. I love both teaching and loving the pets, and working with the owners. I do realize that the price may be high for some people but if you'll try me out I will make it worth your time and money. I take pride and joy working with animals by teaching and loving them. Not only is working with animals fun but I learn something new every time and I also get to help the family as well. One of the dogs I trained was going to be put down since no one would adopt her because of her bad behaviors. She would jump on the couch, bolt out the door, chewed my mom's shoes, and several other bad behaviors. I took her home before she was put down and trained her. I worked with her for a few months, lovingly teaching her what behaviors were not acceptable and teaching new ones such as: sitting at the door before going out and coming in or not jumping on the couch. She even stopped chewing on shoes. When I took her back to the animal shelter the next day, someone looking for a dog was so impressed by how well-behaved she was that they adopted her and took her home. This is just one example of the work I can do. I am also able to train young puppies as well. I am willing to negotiate times and places to fit your needs. If you have any questions please call or message me.

    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.
