Jennifer is exactly what we needed. We had to surrender our dog due to aggressive behavior. From the first moment I contacted her I knew she would tell me the truth and do what needed to be done for everyone involved to have a happy life. She sat down with us an explained how we had gotten to the point, why she felt she could not help us train him and then held our hand through the entire process. What was awesome was when we sat down with her she listened heard our story asked us questions to really understand what we need from her, then gave her honest opinion. Her knowledge of the anxiety and behavior our dog was exhibiting was very helpful in our decision. I have talked with multiple trainers who said they could help or offered support and fell through or gave false hope. Jennifer is not that at all. She has checked in with me every day, answering any questions that I had. I felt like she was in my corner. I can not thank her enough for making sure not only I was okay but so was my dog. She is a trainer that will give you her best no matter what. It has been such a pleasure working with her during a very hard time in our lives!!!!!

Unbelievable. I have a 12 week old Australian Cattle mix and almost no experience in training dogs. Peter is extremely professional, kind, and experienced. He came right on time to my house at 5:30AM and brought treats for my puppy and even gave me a clicker. I noticed a clear difference in my puppy and Peter helped me to understand more about animal behavior. I look forward to our next session this coming week! He is outstanding!

Theresa's love for animals and patience is untouchable. She provided me with detailed notes and feedback from our sessions. I saw an incredible change in my dog's behavior and manners. I would strongly recommend Theresa. Even after my sessions were over, she has remained a resource.

My puppy Benny and I had a great experience with Sandy. She taught me many skills to use with Benny that shaped his positive behavior as a puppy. She was always available for advice via text and phone (about training and advice about raising a puppy). She is very professional and also very friendly. Her love for dogs shows in the work she does! I would highly recommend Sandy.

Michael is fantastic! Very laid back and understanding of my dogs behaviors. By the end of the first session, I felt very hopeful and much more relaxed. Looking forward to next weeks sessions!

Jinks is trained!!! Her recall, heel, sit, down and place commands are solid! My 4 year old nephew can handle her on the leash, with no pulling! Exactly what I hired ACTK9 to do. John and Lindsay are very talented trainers. I think they were probably over qualified to train a very domesticated rescue pup, but were professional and experienced enough to be able to adjust training methods and intensity to work with our girl. She was timid and a bit nervous at first, but she came out of her shell and is ready to be enrolled in her first agility class. I would highly recommend John to train your dogs, especially if you are looking for highly obedient animals.

Yvonne is AWESOME! a self proclaimed dog-person who won our cats over instantly. She clearly loves and values all animals! She took superior care of our 3 cats for a week (one of them needed meds) and took care of our house-related items as well. She stayed in contact and we felt secure that our fur babies were safe and happy the whole time. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Excellent is an understatement. This is more than just obedience training. It is insight to the dog/human relationship, from the dogs point of view. I didn't think I could change the behavior of my 4 1/2 year old dog, but I was mistaken. I just needed to stop doing all the wrong things. Don't go elsewhere just to realize you should have made Progressive Canine Dog Training and Behavioral Services your first stop!

Noelle is amazing at what she does!!! I was fearful that I was going to have to give my beautiful dog away as she kept jumping and scratching my elderly father. I heard about Noelle through a family friend who had used her services and immediately decided to contact her. Initially I had no hopes, but after our first consultation, I knew I was in great hands! She came to my house and we set goals and started training immediately. Noelle introduced key commands as well as behaviors for my dog to learn and follow. The connection she was able to make with my dog was very unique and has allowed her to make significant progress. We have now conquered the jumping issue and had moved on to other goals. Noelle has enabled me to have a better relationship with my dog and taught me how to make my dog do what I want her to do, a concept easier said than done. Very thankful for Noelle and what she has done for my family.

We recently moved to Woburn, from New York City. Donna has been wonderful; she has met our every need with our two adorable senior dogs. Donna leaves us updates daily as to how their walks have been and who they have met along their travels. We use Donna during the week while we are at work but also have used her while we went away for Christmas and New Year’s. She is friendly, outgoing and companionate about our fur children. They love her, she takes extra good care of them and we are never worried about how they are doing. Donna even plays with our kitty when she visits. We have had Dog walkers in the past that will pay no attention to our cat. But Donna loves all animals. I highly recommend her. She is bonded and insured, coming from NYC we were very selective as to who cares for our pets while we are at work or away.

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.

I first met Ken when he volunteered at our animal shelter. He was so dedicated came in rain, snow exc. He worked diligently with our animals to help make them more adoptable and has a heart of gold. I highly recommend Ken for your training needs. If you want someone you can trust and who will love your animals as much as you then he's the guy.

I've worked with Kim with my terrier mix one on one and at a leash-reactive training class and highly recommend her in either setting. She was so tuned into my dog and really clearly has a way with them. She's also a terrific teacher in a group setting and can corral a class of a dozen dogs (and owners!)! Kim gave me specific techniques that I have continued to incorporate on my own that have helped considerably. When we worked together she just seemed to know the challenges beneath my dog's behavior - she is a keen observer and listener to both people and dogs and she really knows her stuff. A gem.

We are so happy that we found Erica for dog walking services through Thumbtack. She was very quick to get back to us and even came over to meet us in person. She is very knowledgeable about animals as she used to be a vet assistance and she is extremely professional. She is very flexible to work with your needs and she is happy to adjust times and visits per your pet needs. Her prices are great too for the quality service you get! We feel very at ease knowing she is taking goof care of our puppy when we are at work.

I was nervous about bring my puppy Finn back to Boston after having a couple days of training in RI, but she helped me to feel more confident to take care of him and continue with training on my own for a few days. Her knowledge about dog behavior really helped me to under stand what I need to do to help my puppy understand me, and for me to understand him. I can't show enough gratitude that she drove all the way to Boston to help me, and I would recommend her to anyone dealing with training.
