Peter is extremely intelligent and well-read when it comes to dog training. He spent two quality private sessions with me and my dog, and the improvement in her behavior was obvious within minutes of our first session. We have a long way to go but Peter gave me and my family a great foundation upon which to raise my new pup. And who knew, we had the tools all along - food!
No bones about it. Chelsea is the pack leader. She trains dogs without treats & without the use of E-collares. I was blown away when on our second lesson she came into my house of 5 dogs & within 10 minutes all my bone heads were sitting down together QUIETLY and looking up at us. I would have never thought it possible never-ending in just 10 minutes. Then she proceeded to bring her service dog into my house without my dogs ever meeting him. They did not make a peep & sat to meet him. It was like the Twilight Zone. This can't be my dogs!@#? As dog parents, we tent to let a lot slip. We are not in control. We are not being the "PACK LEADER " This is hard for us but it is also confusing for our dog's. They have to know who is the boss. Chelsea will teach you that. Just remember, she can teach you the way, but you must become the "PACK LEADER " she can not do it for you. She will always be by your side but it is up to you to guide your dog down that path. Chelsea is the only person I would trust to do that with me.
Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!
Blake has been working with our dog bear for a couple weeks now we already notice a,difference. She is great with both of our dogs. WE highly recommend her.
Wendy relates to the dog as she's grooming them. She cares for each dog like it's her own. She makes sure that the experience is a good one.
Tammi has taken excellent care of my dogs and cat. She goes above and beyond to be sure they don't miss you too much. She did a great job caring for my elderly dog who needed increased care and clean up!
Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.
Heather was very informative and provided excellent training documentation. we discussed Sammy's issues and she explained how to handle them. she was very patient to listen to my litany of the problems Sammy and I have. Sammy is finicky and will not eat regularly. Heather explained that until Sammy's eating habits improved, his obedience will lag as well. we are having marked improvement as we continue to work on both. he's doing much better, thanks Heather! ciao! Susie and Sammy

Hello. My name is Tara. I walk dogs with my sister, depending on the breed of dog (big or small), wild or calm.
I have had pets my entire life, including dogs, cats, and ducks. I am a total dog-lover. My fiance and I have two dogs ourselves. I am high energy and athletic and I have experience raising puppies. I am willing to walk dogs on leash; or off leash (if well behaved). I have a bachelor's degree from Bridgewater State University and I am a full time server/bartender. I have lived on the Cape most of my life. I also have a large fenced in yard that is pet friendly for dogs who need a safe place off a quiet road to run and play.
