I want to bring safety, peace and resolution to your home with positive reinforcement training. I train all types of dogs.
I'm a certified dog trainer with three years' experience and a veterinarian reference. I teach dog obedience, positive training methods, and in-home training.
Decades of dog owning experience has equipped me to keep an eye on your pet when you're away from the house. I can give a nice, long walk to tucker your friend out and even do some basic training, such as sit and stay.
Dog and people training that's focused on helping families have a balanced dog. This type of instruction works well for the majority of owners who want a family dog, not a ribbon in obedience. Manners, some "environmental obedience", and very few bad habits are what most of us want from our four-legged friends.
Becca was our trainer for our once weekly obedience training. These folks use the ecollar as a tactic to help the dog stay on track and it, along with the guidance becca has given us the humans, and the pup has helped us all immensely! Thank you!!!
We hired Robin as our trainer for two shelter dogs (4yo and 5yo) both have not had the best of beginnings, so training on our own was impossible. Robin knows exactly what to do, she has great suggestions, she is a great teacher to us humans and she has the best tone and connection with Daisy and Bella! They really like her and are happy to see her when she pulls up to the house! We are looking forward to more sessions with her!
I take care of both dogs and cats. I pet sit and take care of pets, as well as walk your dog. I also do basic dog training using a reward system. This includes sitting, laying down, staying, coming when called, heeling and giving me their paw. I love animals, and I don't even consider taking care of them a job.
I feel that my skills are more about understanding the dog and how he/she learns. When people understand that human language is not the one that works when you have a dog that has a issue that doesn't seem to get better but just keeps getting worse when you can learn to speak dog an know why it works you will see happy owners along with a very happy and healthy relationship with the dog
She is amazing with the animals! She taught my dog (and me) most of the basic commands in just 45 mins with great results! She spent a good 2 hrs. Talking about ways I can help my dog (new rescue), and how she is willing to help me. I could not have found a better, more personable trainer than Kim.
Is your dog lunging and pulling on the leash? Is your puppy biting too hard? Do you have a multi-dog household? Do you have dogs who do not get along or dogs who do not like men, children, or vacuum cleaners? Do you have dogs who get anxious when you leave or when there are thunderstorms and other loud noises? Does your dog "leave it" or wait at the door or in the car? Does your pup steal your things? Does your dog come when called? I am a certified community training partner graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior and a fully certified canine behavior consultant of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and would love to work with you and your dog (or dogs!). I will come to you or for those of you with multiple roles in career and parenting, you can leave your dog with me while you go to work. I will get your pup going on training and then transition the dog to you and your family. I spent most of my career as a child psychologist, so I'll also happily train your children on how to train their dog. I'm available evenings and weekends as well beginning September 1, 2015.
We are training dogs as pets. We provide therapies for animals and service dogs. We are providing boarding and training programs as well as tailored programs to help you and your family companion bond together

I am currently a college student in the Fenway area of Boston. I have a lot of experience with dogs as I have been a trained volunteer at a nonprofit organization for over a year. My responsibilities in this position range from teaching dogs to sit for a cookie while they are in their kennels to feeding them at mealtimes and walking them using training and management techniques that are safe and kind as they wait to be adopted by their new owners. The dogs I have experience with have many different backgrounds, vary in sizes (from chihuahuas to pit bulls) and have various behavior issues. I have also been dog sitting for a 13-year-old black labrador for four years. My volunteering experience has opened up many dog walking and sitting opportunities to me. I had a daily dog walking job last summer with a two-year-old terrier mix (from Mondays-Fridays, one-hour walks), and I currently have a temporary dog walking position for a two-year-old chihuahua. I have my own dog at home with my parents so I understand the importance of having the right people around your pets, and I can be that person for you. I am reliable and honest, and I love dogs. My pricing is reasonable, and I can create custom payment plans to accommodate your budget.
Hello there! My name is Alyssa and I am a professional dog trainer. I currently work at a dog training facility. At this facility I train and rehabilitate dogs. I have trained dogs with all different temperaments and behavior issues (fear aggression, dog aggression, agression towards humans, separation anxiety). That being said, no dog is too much for me! Other than my work life, I love to hangout with my pup and go for hikes. I am currently enrolled in the criminal justice program at my college and hope that one day I can work for a federal agency or with the police K-9 unit. With my services, I will be able to do obedience training for an hour a day with your pup as I am caring for him/her. Your dog will also experience some awesome hiking trips! If you would like to know more about me or my services, just ask! I have plenty of references from clients that I would be happy to provide!
Sandy is great and extremely reasonable with her prices. I’m glad I chose her and would highly recommend her to anyone!
Zephyr has mastered the art of dog training. Within minutes of our first session our previously untrained, recently adopted dog was sitting and heeling. We were trying to reduce his low level anxiety by working with him on basic obedience skills. Zephyr was very patient with me as I learned how to give the commands and how to use the leash. He was also very kind and loving to my dog, which I know is very important to most dog owners. My dog has shown less anxiety and greatly increased obedience skills in just three sessions with Zephyr. We are already recommending his services to family and friends with dogs!
Competent, caring professionals who provide top quality dog training services. They take the time to understand the needs of both the owners and the dogs. Great experience!
I teach dog owners how their dog's mind works, and how to connect to the dog in a way it understands. I teach the dog owner how to be an effective pack leader so the dog will follow the owner out of respect, not because they have food treats.
I work not only the dog but the client as well, and everyone that will be handling the dog I dont do all training in a facility,but in public, stores and most important where the dog feels the safest, which is the home
I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.
We have had great experience with Katie and The Wagging Leash. When we leave our dog Lilly in Katie's care we know she is being cared for as if she was Katie's own pet. She is walked & played with and loved! Lilly comes home happy & rested :) I would recommend Katie & The Wagging Leash to anyone who wants their pets taken care of as a member of Katie's family while they are away.
