Maggie B. says, "Our family was honored to welcome on of their pups, Gabriel. He is truly not a dog, but a family member. He sits at the table politely waiting for a share, no grabbing. He lets us know when someone arrives, different barks for friends or foe (foe- fed ex.) He opens our boxes, never touching the contents, Gabriel knows every hurt that each of us have. When I came home from knee surgery, he met me at the door, smelled the leg carefully, then gently lay his body against me, so tender. I could go on an on- gentle with the cat, but three times in his life alerted us to individuals that turned out to be problems. Without his warning ahead of time, situations could have been serious issues. He is generally healthy for nine, a bit overweight (like his human parents.) I’ve recommended this breeder to a friend who drove from Florida to Indiana for his companion. He was so impressed with our boy, he needed his own. If you are considering a Shepherd, talk to Kat. She is extremely careful with the genetics of her litters, they are well loved from day one, ready for your home. The dogs are an investment in the atmosphere of your family’s life. Don’t look anywhere else!" Read more

Sarah N. says, "I had Lindsey come to my house and help me with my dogs leash aggression. Lindsey was kind, and talked me through what she was doing and gave me a chance to do what she was doing with my dog, so she could help me and tweak what I was doing to help my dog better. It seems she’s been doing this a long time and my 100 pound German Shepherd didn’t scare her one bit. Highly recommend! ❤️" 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.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value We found Susie through HomeGuide and are so happy that we did. She is absolutely amazing. We have a 5 year old rescue bulldog/beagle and we were having trouble with her pulling hard on the leash and being very reactive to movement be it a squirrel, rabbit, a leaf blowing, etc. both on her walks, in our yard, and in the house. She would go into a frenzy at times yelping very loud and sounding like she was hurt. Susie came over and within an hours time was able to get our dog to sit, go down, wait, leave it, to look at you, and to not pull on the leash. She spent over three hours here working with our dog, going over nutrition, and giving us the advice and the tools we need to continue working with our dog. Our dog is much improved and it is a work in progress, but if we spend the time training her and being consistent we know that everything Susie showed us will work. Susie also followed up within 48 hours and we know that we can always call her and have her come for another visit. We are very glad that we did this and would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her to anyone. - Dave and Teresa Jackson

The professional posture is like no other. Kat has integrity and character and does not mess around with how important it is to be a responsible pet owner, handler, and the care for animal is the priority. I have learned much. She has to keep Training me so I can bond with my dog, so my dog will respond to her working environment! I would be lost with out Kats dedication!

Although the name says dogs, Lindsay seems to have extensive knowledge of just about all animals. She came to my house a few times in the week I was gone for business and checked up on my cat and salt water fish tanks. When I came home my cat was happy and my fish were in good shape. I only gave 4-stars because she does live in Michigan City IN, which is far for me (Lisle IL), but I wanted someone I can trust and after meeting Lindsay I knew I could trust her. I just wish she was closer.
