Sylvia is a true dog whisperer and she has saved our family many times. The first time I was almost in tears because my puppies were fighting all the time and I was afraid I might have to re-home one of them. She calmly told me that all I needed to do was learn how to be the pack leader. She was right! Once the dogs knew my husband and I were in charge, they no longer fought each other for dominance. The next time was when my husband was away in the army and I became too sick to take care of my dogs. My dogs are my babies and I'm so grateful that Sylvia was there to watch over them. She took care of them as if they were her own until I got better and my husband came home. They were so happy and healthy and vibrant when we picked them up. Sylvia has also taught me how to do service dog training with my dog, Ike. Sylvia loves all creatures, human or animal, and has a big heart. She especially reaches out to help veterans and the disabled. There is no one else I would trust more with my family, you can trust her with yours.

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!

Cindy Wilson is an excellent dog trainer. She even trained my dog to ring the bill to let me know when he wants to go out. I still call her till this day when I have dog training questions. Even though she's now in another state. I highly recommend her services.

I took my dog in for some behavioral issues... He likes to jump on people when I'm out walking him. Anne was very knowledgeable and offered straightforward advice and clear directions for helping this issue. I'd definitely recommend Anne's services to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

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!

So very thankful for Alex and his knowledge about what was best for my dog Lucy. He gave me really workable, sound advice. Lucy is totally responding to his directions. I feel he gave us both tactics to go forward with. Given Lucy, is a high attention dog I am sure we will need him to come back!

Our experience with Latony's Dog Training so far has been exceptional! Very responsive, very professional and very compassionate toward dogs. During our initial meeting they focused on learning exactly what we are looking for in training our dog and are helping us to created a long-term plan. We can't wait to get started on this process!

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.

Daphne was great working with my dog Murray and I on training. She is very patient and kind. She taught me to look for the cues Murray was giving when he was getting overwhelmed. Because of Daphne's training methods, Murray is now much more confident and able to walk well on a leash. Not only did Daphne teach Murray how to be confident, she taught me how to be a confident dog-owner. Thank you Daphne!

I have an 8 year old mini schnauzer and a 3 month old labradoodle. Charyce has been able to cater to both dogs and they are responding well to training. Theye have very different personalities and attention spans but we have been able to work with both during our sessions. She is very patient and loves animals. Her methods are calm but firm and the dogs respond well to her commands as well as my own.

Nikki is awesome! I have 2 dogs, one is older and the other is just under two years old. Neither is out of control or major nuisance, but there was room for improvement. The younger one is leery of people and a bit skittish. At our first meeting the young walked up to Nikki and allowed herself to be pet and she was at ease. We are just about a month into training and all is going well. The dogs have responded well to the training and I've seen significant improvement.

Cameron is an awesome dog trainer! He took my concerns seriously and gave me hope when I thought my dog could not be trained and the problems couldn't be fixed. He was very professional and explained everything thoroughly and made sure I was comfortable with what I was doing. He is a great teacher and worked wonders with my dog! I highly recommend him!!!!

    This was my first time sending my dogs off for professional training, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. My wife and I have 2 60-lb hounds, 4 and 5 years old. Throughout their lives, we have spent a lot of time working working with them on our own, using what knowledge and techniques we could gain from books and YouTube videos (and there are a lot). But the two weeks Gillie and Bronson spent with Charli brought them further than anything toward their path to the well-behaved dogs we’ve been striving for. The best part about the training, though, was the tools and skills Charli gave us to practice with at home. She met us at our level and taught us just what we need to feel confident. We are very satisfied, thanks Charli!!

      Phenomenal trainer! Great at helping animals with behavioral problems or if you just want to teach your dog to sit and stay he can do that too. He has been able to make aggressive animals adoptable and trained many animals for television roles.

        I own a dog grooming and training business, when I'm overwhelmed I have referred my clients or people looking for a dog trainer to Darcie. My clients have been very pleased with Darcie and her training skills. If you are looking for a dog trainer so that you can better communicate with your dog, I would recommend Darcie!

        About

        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.

        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.

        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?
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
