Kim knows dogs and their behaviors very well. She will spend as much individual time with you and your dog as it takes to see the changes you want from your dog. She goes through the training skills and thought process and then practices them with you. She is flexible and creative with dogs with stubborn personalities and never gives up on a dog. If practice at home with your dog isn't going well then she will give you more ideas to try. She is patient and kind with the dogs and owners. I always look forward to going to training with my pup! Several friends and family have told me that my 8 month old border collie has calmed down and listens much better now :)

Leanne was great with our dog and extremely knowledgeable about his breed, age and behavior. It was great working with her; she's a lot of fun and the dog was always really excited when she arrived for training. Not only did our pup learn a lot, but we learned a lot about him which is great for us. I'd definitely recommend Leanne for anyone looking for a quality trainer who knows her stuff.

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.

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!

She worked so well with our puppy Zoë! After just one session Zoë was already much calmer and happier dog. The training method she uses really helps to bring structure to our lives as new puppy owners! I would 100% recommend her to any friends needing help to train their dog!

I've been training with David for approximately 2 years now as we both have dogs from the same litter and train for Mondioring. David is fabulous to train with. He has a keen eye for detail and strives for nothing less than perfection. I never imagined that I would be competing my dog at all in Mondioring and yet now we are competing at levels I really never thought possible. David has motivated us, pushed us, critiqued us. His natural ability to work with dogs is phenomenal. His dedication, commitment and willingness to make my dog and I better is something I will be forever grateful for. From puppy training, general obedience, to very competitive sport work, David is fantastic! A highly recommended asset for any dog owner.

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.

We just love Julianne and our 4-legged girls love her even more! Julianne takes care of our furry family as if they were her own. She's incredibly responsible, reliable and always sends updates on the crew while we're out of town. We're lucky enough to have found Yes! for pet sitting, while the training results are also amazing. We were out of town for only a few days, upon our return, our girls were well behaved! Amazing. Highly, highly recommend everyone use Yes! Dog Training for all training and pet sitting!!

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😁🐶😁

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.

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.

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.
