Sylvia's love for dogs is well beyond words. Sylvia is an extremely knowledgeable, professional dog trainer with vast experience. She quickly identified at least one of our dogs behaviour needs when she was greeted at our gate with two dogs barking their heads off. She was correct. Unwanted barking was one of the behavior we were looking for guidance to silence. Additionally, with the ability to walk our dogs without pulling. Sylvia provided us with excellent practical hands on training, resources, advice and support. Amazing to see how much was covered during this one hour session. She certainly left us on her first visit the confidence of achieving desired results. Sylvia has an incredible passionate way of how she relates to people and dogs--motivates dogs and owners to alter the dogs and human behaviors with a goal of achieving a happy, healthier dogs and owners. We have implemented her guidance and seeing small results already. We look forward to continuing our dialogue with Sylvia during this journey.

Thank you Martha! I was very hesitant about getting a trainer, only because it is a little bit of a financial commitment and I think a lot of us think that we can do things ourselves, but I was really having a hard time with one of my dogs and decided that it was worth it to try a trainer. She was great. She was very responsive and attentive before I even hired her, and even more so after. She works with you to make sure you get what you want/need out of the session. She met my two dogs and helped me better understand why they were misbehaving and how I could make them better. She listened to all my concerns and addressed all of them, and best of all once she works with you, you can call her anytime for additional help which is very reassuring. On a side note she is also very fair, and if money is a concern she can definitely work with you to try to keep the time frame within your budget which was very appreciated. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I definitely recommend Martha!

I have been in the veterinary field for more than 20 years but I've never trained a dog. Without Jenn's help I would be lost! I own two Belgian Malinois under the age of 2 and they are a handful!Jenn's skilled guidance has been detrimental in the formation of obedient owner and obedient dogs!

We love Zoom Room! The staff are amazing, especially Olivia at the front desk! The owner Cheryl is truly a gifted dog trainer and an all-around awesome person. Zoom Room offers numerous classes and you will find no trainer more dedicated to you and your pup than Cheryl; she has taught me so much about being a good handler and my dog Xedo loves her. Xedo has excelled at Agility under her awesome direction and insight. Even now, while he is recovering from ACL surgery, Cheryl has been so awesome, checking on him and offering ideas and encouragement. Cheryl is going to help us build strength in his knee, by utilizing one of her class specialties, “Puplates”! Best of all Zoom Room is a community gathering place where like-minded, fun loving dog owners and their awesome pups can meet up; whether it’s for "Agility League Night" (a friendly competition for pups and their peeps!) or celebrating while playing games and enjoying lite fare. Xedo even had his 6th birthday party at Zoom Room! Boy was that fun!! We have so many favorite events at Zoom Room it's hard to name them all! Cheryl is so awesome at putting together parties to celebrate every new season, including holiday photos shoots for pups and their owners. There is no better training studio around! If you are looking for a great community to connect with while learning tons about training your dog and having lots of fun while doing it, look no further! Zoom Room is perfect!

In my personal opinion Harmony at Home was an absolute pleasure to work with. Aside of their numerous certifications, Harmony at Home presented positive energy, very gentle humane (and also humorous) training methods, and detailed thorough instructions/guidelines. At the end of my pups first training session I saw immediate results! Almost a %100 turnaround! I will recommend Harmony at Home to anyone in need of a dog trainer!!! Thank You Harmony at Home!

We recently adopted our dog and noticed some behavior issues resulting from previous abuse. The rescue organization recommended that we contact Shawna for advice. I told Shawna the problems we were experiencing and she gave me some suggestions over the phone. We set up an appointment for her to meet our new dog and evaluate the situation. After our first meeting it was clear that she could help us. She was able to identify the cause of the behavior we were dealing with and gave us effective tips to help us deal with his triggers and build his confidence so that he could feel safe. The training sessions that we have had so far have shown remarkable results. Our dog is more relaxed and looks forward to his training every day. He is happy to show off his skills to Shawna at his next session with her. Shawna has a very common sense approach to training and her advise if followed provides an opportunity for any dog to be successful. My husband and I believe in giving rescue dogs a home whenever possible and if we adopt another dog in the future Shawna will be the first call we make to help us navigate the unknown of our new pet's history. I cannot say enough good things about our experience dealing with her.

To whom it may concern: Cara provided pet sitting services in my home on numerous occasions beginning in November, 2012. Cara proved to be capable and responsible as well as a great communicator. During this time, I had no issues with the services she provided, in fact it was a relief to leave home knowing that my dog, Toby, as well as my home, were both so reliably cared for. Cara was on time and was wonderful in keeping me informed of how Toby was feeling and behaving. I recommend anyone that is looking for a pet sitting service to rely on Cara. I was fully satisfied and confident that my dog was in the best hands. Sincerely, Donna

I chose Gina because she was featured in several articles as being one of the best dog trainers in the area. She took very good care of my dog, giving her plenty of attention and exercise, taking her to the park, lake, and trails. She focused on the training I felt my dog needed the most plus reinforced some basic commands. GIna was also very flexible when I wanted to visit my dog and see how her training was going. I highly recommend her.

Melinda is incredible! I think our pets are hoping we will travel again soon so that they can hang out with her! She is very diligent, detailed, and absolutely loves animals. She really treated our older cat and dog like they were her own. I cannot recommend her highly enough and it gave us great piece of mind that our pets and home would be well cared for while we were gone.

Jacqui was asked to jump into a very difficult situation and she was absolutely marvelous. I watched Jacqui train four dogs for a commercial shoot, in which, she had very little time to prepare and time was of the essence. It was a complete success! Jacqui has a confident demeanor and knows how to work with animals proficiently. With over 6 years of experience, I can't think of a better trainer for our commercial shoot. Jacqui is kind and respectful and was the lynchpin in ensuring the success of our shoot and ultimately our commercial spot. We could not have done it without her. If you need your dog trained, call her right now! You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Jacqui for all of your help! I will be calling you again, when my director tells me that our talent is a bunch of pooches. You rock!

Carol at Northwest Dog Retreat is truly exceptional. I adopted a small dog from an animal shelter and was extremely overwhelmed in the beginning when I first began to discover some of his behavioral issues. As a first time dog owner, I was unsure how to deal with his fears and also my own. I knew I was not equipped to train a dog with fears and aggressions on my own and I was thankful to have been able to find Carol at Northwest Dog Retreat. Carol really took the time to listen to me and my concerns, and with her knowledge, help and guidance, Bruno has totally turned around and is more outgoing and expressive than ever. She is caring, intuitive and truly has a special way with animals. She has given me tools, tips and support through out the process and I am so grateful to have met her! Not only does she help with behavioral training in her own home and well as public arenas, she has boarding and the retreat location is beautiful! Plenty of space for dogs to run and play and enjoy. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Her true passion sets her apart from the others. Thank you Carol!

Janelle responded to my call right away. She came out the same day as I had to separate my dogs with the issue I was having. She has years of experience and it shows. As soon as she walked through the gate my dogs knew she was in charge. She thoroughly explained what the issue was and how to correct it. My dogs are now super happy together. We are following all the advise she has given us. I am so Thankful that I found her. I would highly recommend Janelle to anyone with any type of dog training .

I truly love Christy’s skill and common sense in her training and techniques. Her simple training solution to my pups behavior with potty training, jumping, biting, and bolting out the front door have diminished with her easy daily training solutions and commands in just weeks. My dogs really enjoy her fun training games and her kind patients and loving nature. Christy works with you and your schedule and comes to your home to assist in the training process. Her prices are reasonable and affordable too! I highly recommended Christy for anyone with dog behavior or training needs.

Recently I had the bad luck of both my standing pet sitters moving out of Seattle. I hunted quite a bit for a new pet sitter and came across Morgan from Pit Stop. It's always hard to leave your dogs in the care of someone new when you go on trips, but upon meeting Morgan and seeing her interact with my two pit bulls, I knew she was a perfect fit for us. Morgan took excellent care of them for the long weekend we were away! She sent 2+ daily texts with pics of my pups during her time with them, during morning and evening stays, as well as their midday walks, which I appreciated immensely. She eased my mind while I was away knowing they were in good hands, and I came home to happy and well taken care of dogs. It was great to find a trusting pet sitter again and will be using Morgan in the future!

    I am a certified dog trainer. I am a graduate of the animal behavioral college. I have had my own business since 2007.

    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.
