Kim is a fantastic dog trainer. I think she is an even better dog-owner trainer. She has really helped me understand how my dog interprets my actions so that I can train my dog the way that my dog can understand. It has made such a difference. Kim is always very positive and motivating, too. I believe she truly wants to improve relationships between dogs and their people and she has done exactly that for me. Kim is great at making training sessions fun, too. I know Kim really cares about dogs and about people and I believe she is a uniquely talented dog trainer who can work with any dog.

LeAnne is really good with my dogs and definitely knows her stuff. She has helped me learn more about why dogs think and act they way they do and what training specifically goes along with that. She has insights that I haven't gotten from other dog owners/trainers that are really helpful! It's been a great experience overall and definitely worth every penny! Thanks. LeAnne!

Lindsey is full of positive energy she pours into her work. She is passionate about dogs and her training, but she is also humble about her lifelong experience, where she grew up learning how to train animals from both of her parents. She continues to learn and train her own dogs, always seeking new knowledge that she can in return use to help her clients. She is an advanced dog trainer who can do what other trainers can't often do with the simplist training techniques. Hire Lindsey and in return you will get a trained dog, and a new friend. Don't forget to ask her about dog insurance.

BEST DOG TRAINING COMPANY EVER! I have been through 4 dog trainers and none of them have been able to accomplish what they have plus they have their guarantee which covers spending thousands. I have used them for my first dog (lab) which many trainers were not able to calm his energy. He would pull on leash, jump up on guests, not heel, get in trash, etc... He was a crazy dog however Winston was able to change him in EVERY way! Now I am the pack leader and he listens to me!!! My second dog (Husky Lab mix) I didn't go through ANYONE else and just went strait to Winston and he worked wonders! I ALWAYS will use both his puppy training program and then when the dogs get older use advanced training. Will not recommend anyone else but him!

Redemption dog training helped me control my high energy dog. She is now completely off leash reliable and no longer barks at people or other dogs on our walks. Very punctual and you can tell Jasmine is passionate about what she does. She also helped me to socialize my dog because she was being aggressive and protective of me. I love her free group socialization classes they really helped my dog. I am very happy with the steps my dog and I have made, I owe it all to redemption dog training.

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!

We bought a Cane Corso and knew she would grow up to be 120 pounds so we wanted her trained. When she was just a few months old she was starting to show signs of aggression towards others and I knew she could not do this because she was so big. I went to one trainer who had no idea what he was doing. I then found David with Innovative K9 and sent our dog Mya to him for 6 weeks. when she came back she was a completely different dog. She was not aggressive anymore. She does amazing with sit, stay, come, bed and heal. I can take her on walks without a leash and she stays right with me. I love what Davis has dog with Mya. He is an amazing trainer and I would recommend everyone to him. He knows exactly what he is doing! I am so happy that I did this training.When people come over I put her on her bed and she will stay there until I let her know it's ok to come off the bed and everyone always tells me how impressed they are with how well she listens! thank you David for helping us be able to enjoy our dog!

Roger is an awesome dog trainer that knows and trains dogs to any level you want. What I appreciated miat about Roger is he took took me from a complete novice to knowing how to properlyrics handle my dog (wirehaired pointer) in the field. The partnership he fostered between Zoe and I pays huge dividends not only during hunting season, but every single day.

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

We initially invested some money to train our dog, that saved us a lot of money in chewed furniture, electrical wiring... So on so on. We love our dog but we really love the fact that she has been trained to be a good dog. It was easy effective!

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!

      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.
