My husband and I would highly recommend Alyssa to anyone looking for exemplary dog training. She is professional, punctual and an excellent communicator. Our two young, large dogs saw results in the first session! Not only that, but my husband and I feel confident that we can also expect the same results when we work with our dogs privately. Alyssa is a well-rouded trainer and we feel so blessed to have found her :)

    When I left for the weekend, my five month old puppy would not sit and stay at her "place" while we were eating lunch or dinner. Erin was able to train her to sit and stay, and to stay at her place for the full time that we were eating. She is amazing with animals and I recommend her to anyone.

    My dog did two weeks of full immersion training. I absolutely love the progress my dog has made working with Victoria! She took my hyperactive pup and turned him into a well behaved dog. Not only did I love her my dog did too. She taught my dog behavioral manners and the training has allowed me to feel comfortable inviting people in to my house as wells as made me feel more comfortable taking him in public. Since my dog is a medium sized dog, before she worked with him I was afraid to have him around small children and other people because I was afraid he would jump on them and knock him down. Now that he has completed his training program I can trust my dog around children of ages and trust that he will not be a nuisance to people coming into the home. I 100% recommend Victoria and I can't wait to do more training in the future!

      About

      My strength lies in teaching owners to break difficult/challenging behaviors into little steps so the dog/owner team can have early successes and build on them. I'm patient, persistent and keep my sense of humor. I'm good at helping owners understand new information and resourceful at finding practical ways to solve problems.If I don't have the answer I'll find someone who does and share what I've learned with my clients. Years of experience in teaching, working in vet hospitals, competing with my own dogs and horses, and learning from some of the best have given me a wide and solid base of experience on which to draw.

      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.
