Dog training at its best! My dog Henry has come a long way. He is now a "superstar! " I've noticed a big difference in his obedience to certain commands since we started training with Kim! I enjoy the new challenges she throws at Henry and I! Every week we learn a new skill and Kim is awesome at teaching. She can teach you how to communicate with your dog what you want him to learn. I never could have gotten Henry where he is without Kim. I highly recommend her!

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!

I think she did a good job taking care of my dog. I liked that she wrote a note of each day of what happened. I thought that was a nice added touch. She also worked with me with what I needed for dog. I didn't quite like the contract that I had to sign, it made me feel that it was a bit impersonal.

My boyfriend and I got our puppy, Luna, last year. She is a mix of high-energy breeds. She was jumping on the back door, jumping on people, constantly pulling on her leash, and could never contain her excitement. To be honest- I'm not a very patient person, so I was having a hard time handling her. We contacted Lindsey, and she came out the next week. The change she initiated in Luna was incredible. Not only did she train Luna, but she trained us. It truly is amazing the knowledge she shared with us on dog behavior and how to modify it. Luna is now a year old, she is obedient, rarely jumps on people (unless specifically asked to), doesn’t pull on her leash, stays on her bed when told, and is much better at controlling her energy. Lindsey also helped me realize that patience is so important when training a dog. Dogs need a positive environment to learn, and being constantly frustrated with them is not helpful. If you’re having trouble with your dog’s behavior, I 100% recommend Lindsey. We couldn’t be happier with Luna’s progress. THANK YOU.

I am a busy professional (and also a single mom) with a dog-loving first-grader. After three years of begging, I relented into my daughter's pleas for a new furry best friend and got a golden retriever puppy for our family. She was the sweetest dog, but I quickly realized that there is far more to training a dog than what I had read about in my puppy book. I checked out some of the puppy and dog training courses at some of the bigger chains around town as well went to one class at our vet, but I didn't feel like any of those matches were a great fit for what I needed --one on one attention and someone who could listen to what my challenges were with our pet --and help me figure out a training plan that realistically worked with my schedule. A friend recommended Canyon Dogs and I decided to give it a shot. It was a great experience! I ultimately decided the boot camp was worth the investment and I am so glad I did it. Our dog came back with so many of her "problem behaviors" in line --and not only that, I got very clear instructions on how to maintain the good behavior with drills, etc. I'll be honest, I thought that perhaps it was crazy to spend money on training a dog, but it is so worth it to have a well-behaved animal --especially if you are at a place in life where you are a little short on time, I was so grateful to have Winston's expertise to help guide us in the right direction. I'm so glad I chose a more personalized approach in choosing Canyon Dogs for our obedience training. I feel like we got so much more out of the experience than friends who chose other training methods. Also, I get the sense that Canyon Dogs really takes pride in their work and wants to have great results. They will treat your dog as "family" --one reason I try to also take advantage of their boarding services when the occasion arises. It's a worry-free experience to know that our dog is well-taken care of when we've been away.

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!

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😁🐶😁

I love that she offers private lessons in the comfort of your own home at a very affordable price. That's super convenient for me as a pet owner because I don't have to drag my puppy there and back every time he has a training session.

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.
