Justin C. says, "Tom assisted in getting my golden retriever to respond more enthusiastically to basic commands. He had been home schooled for two years and needed a more precise reaction to commands. Tom put Jet on a training schedule that allowed the dog to quickly respond to commands and increased his fitness significantly. Thank you for all the great work, Justin Campbell" Read more

Jodi R. says, "She does what she says and is there for support after all the training. I learned a lot about habits that I needed to improve on (ie: there’s no need to talk to your dog as your leaving the house if they have separation issues) so it made me better for my dog." Read more

Your Dog Training questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much are dog training prices near me?

Professional dog training costs $30 to $50 per group class and $45 to $120 per private session. Dog obedience training schools cost $200 to $600 per week, and boot camp kennel training costs $500 to $1,250 per week. Get exact prices by contacting affordable dog trainers near you.

What do professional dog trainers do?

Local dog trainers teach dogs basic obedience, behavioral modification, agility, personal protection or guarding, emotional support, therapy or service dog training, show dog handling, puppy training, trick training, hunting training, police dog or K9 training, and other types.

Certified dog trainers offer group classes, private lessons, or come to your home for one-on-one training. The best in-home dog trainers also teach the owner how to train commands, use body language, and offer proper reinforcement guidance. Many dog trainers use positive reinforcement, which uses a reward (treats, praise, toys) for desired behaviors.

What is the best age to train a dog?

Puppies 7 to 8 weeks of age begin to learn basic obedience commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “stand,” and “down.” Professional dog training traditionally starts at 6 months old. By delaying training, behavioral patterns learned during puppyhood likely take longer to change.

Can you train an old dog?

Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks! Dogs can learn and be trained at any age. Older dogs have more self-control and are easier to train than young puppies. Continuing to train your dog as it matures is also important to help keep their mind sharp.

Is paying for private dog training worth it?

Private dog training helps correct your dog’s behavior, aggression, anxiety, socialization skills, and teaches them a commands list in a timely and cost-effective manner. Common commands dogs learn quickly are to stay, heel, and roll over.

Professional dog training is valuable because it teaches your dog not to jump or bite, to stop barking, to stay in the yard off-leash, potty training, to use a dog door, not to pull on a leash, hand signals, and much more.

Which dog breeds are easy to train?

The easiest dog breeds to train are an Australian Shepherd, Corgi, Bearded or Border Collie, Poodle, Miniature Schnauzer, Labrador, Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, and a Doberman Pinscher. Female canines of all breeds are also easier to train and housebreak.

Which dog breeds are hard to train?

The hardest dogs breeds to train are a Husky, Mastiff, Pug, Beagle, Bulldog, Weimaraner, Afghan Hound, Basenji, Basset Hound, Bloodhound, Chow Chow, Dalmatian, Fox and Kerry Blue Terrier, Irish Setter, Pekingese, Pit Bull Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, and a Rottweiler.

Highly recommend doesn’t even seem like enough to express how much Debby helped our family as we brought home a new rescue boxer back in May 2018. When we adopted our new rescue we had another senior boxer rescue who had leash aggression issues. Our new dog had some serious fear and confidence issues. I made the classic mistake of introducing these two dogs at the wrong time and in the wrong way and it went terrible. They had a huge fight which became the basis of their early relationship. Like a rookie, I repeated this mistake once again a few days later with the same results. I was devastated and freaked out. That was when Debby was recommended to us to help with socializing the dogs. Over the course of the next six weeks, I would say that she taught US as owners how to handle the dogs. We became more confident as did the dogs. She made herself available to meet with us weekly and provided tips and suggestions at each and every step. In addition, she reached out by text to check on how things were going. She genuinely cared about us and the dogs! In the beginning I was really losing hope that these two dogs would ever get along but with Debby’s help they eventually did and became extremely close - something I truly never thought possible. Fast forward a few months, after losing our senior dog we decided to adopt again. This time I called Debby in advance to ask for her help introducing the dogs to avoid the same issues we had before. She of course helped us and he absolutely no issues whatsoever!! I really believe without her help our boxer rescue would not have successfully integrated into our family and we would have had to return her. But because if Debby she has become a part of our family forever. Regardless of the issues you are having with your dog, I am confident in Debby’s ability to help you and I highly recommend her to anyone.

K9Katelynn dog training is simply a great company to hire for your positive reinforced dog training. He helped my wife and I take on the training of two rat terrier puppies. I don’t know what we would have done without the very professional guidance. To make it even more impressive (due to an illness I had to leave my place of work) K9 gave me a refund of all unused lessons. They were under no obligation to do this. K9 did it quickly sending me the money in a cashiers check. A truly professional company.
