    We LOVE Theresa! When we got our puppy Oshie, he was 8 weeks old and needed a lot of training. I decided to explore options on Thumbtack and that's when Theresa contacted me. After one phone conversation I KNEW she was the one for us. Soon we attended our first class. Oshie has been loving puppy kindergarten and has responded great to clicker training. You could say he's a changed dog! We can't wait to see what else Oshie can learn in class! Marki

    About this pro

    I am a certified professional dog trainer. In August 2015 I graduated from the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy. I have been training dogs for over eight years. I'm based on the north shore. To better accommodate you I offer private in home sessions, group classes and private sessions at my training center which is located at 6 Bourbon Street, Peabody, MA. Let me teach you & your dog how to communicate better through basic skills, manners, behavior modification. My training method of gentle effective clicker training will quickly have you and your dog living harmoniously together. I love teaching dogs to realize that they can make choices in their lives and watching them learn. By choosing to focus on their owner over distractions this results in a happy dog, owner and a better more fulfilling relationship. It would be my pleasure to help you and your dog when and where it's convenient for you.

      • How did you get started doing this type of work?
        I became a dog trainer because of my crazy wonderful yellow Lab Milo. When I rescued her I soon realized that I had no idea how to handle her. I enrolled us in six weeks of basic training, but this was just scratching the surface. The training center was looking for interns so I interviewed. Thankfully I was accepted. After interning for a few years I knew I loved it & decided to become a certified professional trainer through the Katen Pryor Academy. My life has been completely changed, all for the better, thanks to my two angel girls Milo & Sheri.
