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.

We gave FIVE STARS but would give TEN if we could! Lisa is the BEST trainer ever! We have three dogs and each of them have been with Lisa at one point or another over the past year. She takes the time to discuss our training needs, talks through some options and let’s us decide how we want to proceed. Two of our dogs were with her for a week and one for three days and all came back COMPLETELY different dogs; quiet, calm, respectful. They had been bickering and not listening and she fixed it completely. Our dogs are responsive, attentive, eager to please and fun (again) to be around! Lisa’s pricing is WELL worth what she charges because she gives SO much to each dog while in her care and accomplishes incredible things in the short time they are with her! They have training lessons many times during the day as well as play time with other dogs. She shows them new things and helps them not be afraid. She is patient, kind and has a HUGE effect on dogs’ behavior. There is NO one out there like her!! Thank you, Lisa!!

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.

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.

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.

Enika is an amazing horsewoman who teaches riders at every level. I’ve ridden half my life and never took a lesson until I went to Boston Equine. Enika has taught me how to ride properly to protect and support my horse. I couldn’t be more pleased with her training methods and how accommodating she is to her riders and boarders. Her knowledge of horse care and behavior is comforting...especially when you are leaving your horse in someone else’s hands. I’ve also had her train a young mare that was quite mean (biting) and also explosive with no warning...after 2 sessions with Enika she made significant improvements in both areas and now, 8 months later she is. Completely different horse! Kudos to Enika and Boston Equine...I’m a huge fan.

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.

Dina has taken wonderful care of my dog Kirby for years. Taking care of animals is not just a job for Dina - it's her passion. Her love for the pets in her care is so obvious. If you want someone who will care for your pet as though it were her own, contact Dina. She's the best!

    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.
