Sylvia was able to quickly teach us how to correct our dog's obedience problems.
We contacted Martha to help us work on some basic obedience training with our 11 month old corgi pup. We were at a loss as to how to correct some behavioral issues that were aggravating us. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, explaining in depth what the root of the issues were and showing us very simply how to correct them. Within just a couple hours the problems were fixed, and now we have the tools to help ensure they stay that way. It's been a few days now and everything is great!
Absolutely happy with Jennifer and Ana. Both are wonderful trainers who truly understand dogs AND owners. From past experience I must say that that is not too common. There were trainers in our lives that brought out the uncharacteristic wish in me to drop to the ground and sit when they yelled the command. Me! Anything to please them. Needless to say my dog's respect for me melted through the planet's core and was on its way to China when I found Thumbtack (fate must have taken over, taking pity on me, leading my fingers over the keyboard that I could barely see through my blurry desperation) and with it the best trainers we ever had. And yes, we did go through a few. That Jenn and Ana work as a team is more than fortunate, you get two for the price of one, even their fee is lower than what the other trainers charged, and you can decide which one is more on your wavelength. And no, your dog has no saying in this, your dog is already perfect. I swear. A little bit of correction is what we want, we get so much more. After only one session my rascal calmed down (I called her confused the first day, I was confused when her aloofness continued on day two), after the second session she only needed a little bit of help to ignore the stink eye another dog gave her, one yank on the leash to remember that insults are below her sophisticated niveau, and she walked next to us as if she had never pulled like a Husky. She has. Every Husky would have bowed to her. I am expecting that she will correct my leash behavior after session three, will point out to me that the little devil in a white fluffy disguise is provocative and deserves a ticking-off, which she will not apply, Ana has taught her what the warning signs were and if I had not paid attention, she will ask. With a reprimanding gaze. Joking aside, in my experience Optimum Dog has chosen their name correctly, they can deliver what they promise. Thanks Ana and Jenn, you rock, you gave me hope and the skills to be a good dog owner, you made me understand that 'speaking dog' is not too hard to learn. And fun.
Cindy is outstanding! She has helped us so much with biting, barking, and obedience with our lab puppy. I would highly recommend hiring her to help with your puppy or older dog!!!
Patti is awesome! We contracted for 4 sessions because our chihuahua has had a HUGE problem with other dogs. Shes 6 years old, our rescue of 4 years, and I was fearful she would be untrainable, as an old dog. Not the case, at all! Shes so eager to learn, and wed never know that had it not been for Patti. My husband and I are feeling much more confidant and relaxed, and, therefore, so is our canine, when walking outside amongst other dogs. Patti is willing to follow up with more lessons when need be, if we need a tune-up." She is a great listener and addresses the behaviors that need changing right away. We are so happy Patti has helped our little girl be less anxious and bossy within a surprisingly short time frame!
Thomas is an awesome dog trainer. I know that dog training isn't really 100% about the dog , it about teaching humans what dogs can do with enough attention and care. He is very direct and clear with his objectives for each class. He also has a lot of experience and wisdom that he loves to share with his students. His constructive criticism is so awesome. He doesn't just tell you not it do something but how to do it differently and better for your dog to understand. His knowledge of the dog is amazing. I was feeding my dog really cheep food and she was constantly sick and acting out. He showed me what dog food to get and WHY. He always backs up everything he says with facts, statistics and his personal life experiences. Outside of class we met up at the dog park a few times, so I could show him what I can do with my dog.
Lise has worked with us and our beagle puppy since we brought her home. She has always been pleasant, knowledgable, and enthusiastic about her work. From explaining play behaviors during puppy play to obedience training tips, we have enjoyed working with her.

A little over a year ago we came to Belynda with our Standard Poodle Annie. We had done the normal puppy and advanced obedience training, which taught her the basic commands, but she had some deeper rooted problems. We also had another trainer that came to the house and we put Annie thru "boot camp" better but she still had issues. We met with Belynda and she put Annie in some uncomfortable situations and video taped Annie's reactions. Belynda determined Annie had insecurity issues and not fear as we had always been told. We did the eight week individual training course and now have been attending the group classes for a year. Annie is much happier and interacts with other dogs much better.
Shawna is great, so glad we found her. We have learned a few techniques for our dog Nala who is a puppy still. They are working!!
We LOVE April, she has been a huge blessing with my Husbands Service Dog I'm Training, Charlie, we were introduced to April in November 2014 when Charlie our Labradoodle was just 12 weeks old. We have gone through basic obedience, sit, lay,stay etc and have been moving up the ladder to leash walking and now beginning off leash walking. She has a connection with animals that amazes me.
I absolutely LOVE Zoom Room Seattle! They are always so kind and helpful. They have helped both of my dogs blossom and really fine tune their skills. They also have really showed me how to better communicate with my dogs. From Obedience to Agility and everything in between the staff at Zoom Room Seattle know how to approach different dogs in different ways to make them a success.
Tazie and I have taken several classes from Helen, including Rally, Obedience and "Calm the Dog". She is patient, knowledgeable and obviously loves working with dogs. I would highly recommend her services.
Jacqui was helpful in refreshing our dog's obedience skills as well as our own.
Alana gave me confidence that my dog wasn't hopeless. After many obedience classes and some training, Reuben (Aussie) could do any trick you want but his excited/anxious emotion would be too much to bear. Alana gave me tools to help Reuben be more calm in stressful situations and has given me an abundance of information following our consultation. Training takes time but seeing Alana just once I can start to see what Im doing right and wrong. Hoping to see Alana in the future for more work with Reuben! Ps. Alana has experience with Aussies which helped a lot.
Becky was knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging as she worked with me, my two boys, and our dog, Maggie. We are working towards becoming a certified dog therapy team and training/testing for the AKC/CGC certificate was our first step. Becky was flexible in choosing our training location, she provided resource material, and she helped us all successfully learn "new tricks". We are appreciative and feel more confident about achieving our goal. Thanks, Becky!! Tricia Budd
I work with Denise at Bark & Ride, I also board my 2 dogs with her when I am out of town. My dogs & all the dogs she cares for LOVE her, I trust her implicitly with my dogs, she has double gates at the entrance, a very large play yard (she picks up poop several times a day), the dogs are brought inside a smaller yard next to the house at night, where they can go inside the heated sleeping quarters if they choose. I pick up & take 10 -12 of her dogs to the dog park twice a week, I work closely with all of her clients & they trust her absolutely. The only negative feedback I have ever heard was from a helper that was let go.
Our dog had obedience issues as well as a challenging attitude, after some time with Kyle these problems have disappeared. Kyle shares a sympathetic psychology about dogs and animals in general that makes sense and works.
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.
My 8 year old dog was very sweet and gentle around people and other dogs. I had to leave her with a couple for 3 months, afterwards, I found out that they let strangers hit her and yell and her and, at one point let another dog attack her. When I got my dog back from them, she was very skittish around strangers and almost bit my friend's dad. She also tried to attack every dog she saw. I found Ellie and after showing me the how sweet and obedient her friend's previously aggressive and unwieldy pit-bull was, and all the cool tricks she'd taught him, I asked for her help in rehabilitating my dog. It's been a month now and while we're still working on socializing her with other dogs, Shelby is completely fine around people. I would 100% recommend Ellie to anyone having behavior problems with their dog.
