Bruce S. says, " Madeline is a knowledgeable trainer and was helpful in setting a foundation with the training needs of our dogs with behavioral issues. During the lessons she was very pleasant to work with and shared many examples of her past training sessions and experiences which helped to establish a level of confidence and trust in her level of experience. It is very clear that she cares very much about both her business and the dogs/clients that she chooses to work with. She has high expectations for the clients to work with and document their training progress on a daily and weekly basis. If you are someone that needs a professionals experience and someone who also needs to be held accountable, look no further. " 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.

John C.
I have used Sugar Sniffers for the help of training my dog Duke. I needed some help with obedience and Monica was just the right person. She taught me the correct way to train and the importance of keeping up the training. Duke is now a well behaved pup. I definitely recommend Sugar Sniffers.

1. How do you feel you got value for the service you received? Madi spoke to me on my level and demonstrated each task. I would rate it a 5 (out of 5, highest value). 2. Can you speak to the communication skills of your Trainer with both the canine and human elements, her knowledge, user-friendliness, professionalism? First of all, Madi was amazing with our Lulu. She literally had her eating out of her hands and Lulu followed and remembered what was taught the following session. It is apparent Madi’s knowledge of behavior is applied consistently, with compassion and experience. 3. What were your priorities/expectations for the training, and do you feel they were satisfied? My main expectation was for my girl to be more calm and less demanding of attention when guests arrive at our home. Madi explained that because Lulu is so young, her excitement is overwhelming. She gave us great suggestions using a distractor such as the Kong toy to help redirect the dog’s energy. We find that when we are caught off guard by a visitor, our girl calms down faster than she did before. We continue to work on this skill. 4. Would you recommend your Trainer, Madi, and what is the best way to recommend her, in your view? I would only recommend Madi to clients that plan to follow through and work consistently with their dog. There is no magic, although watching Madi with my dog was magical. Word of mouth is good but advertising would have helped me find her faster. Judy took the Triad option (three lessons).
