This took my a while to post with my crazy life, but Jennifer came to our house last winter to help deal with an aggression issue with a dog (not our own but of a relative) and our new baby. She went above and beyond to help us, and it was more like a therapy session than dog training! That said, it was clear she knew what she was doing with both the other dog and even with our own usually bouncy dog who greeted her politely. We hope to some day hire her again.
Peter provided exactly the service that he described to me when he messaged me with a quote. He gives you the tools needed to train your dog. Its up to the owner to follow through but if you follow Peter's training you and your dog will be well on your way.
Theresa was fantastic with our dog Olive. she has an extensive amount of knowlege when it comes to dog training it was very impressive. She came prepared with treats and clickers and an excitement to train. Can't wait for our next session!
My husband and I chose to work with Lisa after communicating with her via email and meeting with her in person. We could easily tell she has a love for working with animals and the experience to back it up. We chose to work with her because of her experience with our particular dog breed, the location and surroundings and the incredible price offered. Our 10 month old puppy completed her first week with Lisa and has shown improvement. Our puppy's breed (Rhodesian Ridgeback) is known for their stubbornness, "make me" attitude and are distracted easily with their hound noses. We agreed with Lisa that another week would be appropriate for our puppy. I'm sure other breeds that are less stubborn may not even need more than a week. We are confident our puppy is in in good hands. We also greatly appreciate knowing we have a local contact we can reach out to if we need advice in the future about our puppy's habits or just the breed in general. I would highly recommend to anyone that has problem areas with training their dog or even if you are starting early with your puppy and would like your puppy to be trained for basic obedience skills.
I had a 23 week old puggle who had severe separation anxiety due to a breakup with my boyfriend we also had a year old pitbull they were together everyday since my puggle was 8 weeks old after I moved out and we got our own place she would not stop barking when I would leave her alone. I have to do something so I called good dog training and she guided me through stepson how to control her barking and crying and right now she only likes Criesfor like a minute I tell her to be quiet and give her a treat and we repeated it and repeated it and repeated it. and she finally stoppe I almost got evicted from my apartment if I couldn't get the Barking under control but thanks to good dog we still have a place to live and everything is great
Sandy led the second round of training for my 2-year old rescue dog. Our first training class offered at a major pet retail chain was OK, but the training was a little disorganized. Sandy corrected the earlier training, offering really practical and helpful advice for me to work with my dog. Each training lesson built on the previous one, so the learning was reinforced. And best of all, Sandy really loves her job and her students! (And my dog is always happy when he sees her!) I recommend Sandy highly!
My husband and I are so glad we found Becca. She is absolutely awesome and our dogs love her!! She is very reliable, responsible and flexible if we need to change our schedules. She has done obedience training with both of our dogs and we have really noticed a difference in them. We would highly reccomend her to anyone!
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.
Jess has done an exceptional job helping us train our dog, Bruin. He is a 2yo German Shepherd that has anxiety and a ton of energy. We just finished our 6 week, private training lessons and are extremely thrilled at all of his progress and could not have done it without all of her help. We plan to sign up for more training with Jess to take it to the next level. I highly recommend Jess if you are looking for a trainer. She is extremely patient and so knowledgeable about dogs and very helpful.
My Pyranese had an issue with leash pulling so bad it caused a shoulder injury. Steve had her walking normal within the first 15 minutes of our session. My dog didnt know the word NO now she does. I was amazed with his results. He is punctual and quick responding if you have issues during your homework training. He was so patient to give me verbal instruction through the phone while I was struggling with an issue. He does high quality work and worth every penny. Would absolutely rehire him if I got more dogs. Amy St. Jean
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!
I enjoyed working with Krystal. She is very friendly, very knowledgeable about dogs, and very professional. She was thorough in our first meeting to get to know my dog and his needs. She was very helpful to me in giving me information on ways to train my dog.
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!
It was excellent I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and of course my dogs did!!!!!
Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!
We have two large puppy/dogs. Joe took the first one for 6 weeks and she came back as a perfect little lady. The younger puppy was being a pain in the butt and starting to affect the newly polished training of the older dog. Joe drove an hour to our home and did a training session in our neighborhood to help make sure that they both stayed on the right path. That is pride in the product you create. We will be sending our youngest puppy to his board and train as well in another month! Worth it.
Heidi is an excellent trainer. She not only clearly demonstrates what to do but explains why you are doing it that way. In just a couple of sessions my dogs are doing things I thought were impossible and my dogs have had 8 years of bad habits to correct.
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.

I have over 4 years of experience as a pet sitter. I have done overnight pet sitting as well for up to a week at a time. I am also very active due to my military training, so running with dogs a couple of times a day would be a nice workout for both myself and your pet.

I just moved to Dracut. I'm not a business. I'm looking for something small to get myself started. I do dog walks for now.
