Peter was attentive and very kind. For our first training session, he taught basic techniques that seem to be aligned with the methods he uses. The second appointment he gave more specific direction on the original issue I sought training to address. Overall, I would invite him back for evaluations, his prices are great for the area, and he comes to you. I was looking for a trainer to help me with a specific negative behavior my dog began in the past year. If you are hoping for specific behavior corrections, this may not be the best route to take. I would recommend Peter for initial/new dog training and basic obedience training.

Peter is extremely intelligent and well-read when it comes to dog training. He spent two quality private sessions with me and my dog, and the improvement in her behavior was obvious within minutes of our first session. We have a long way to go but Peter gave me and my family a great foundation upon which to raise my new pup. And who knew, we had the tools all along - food!

Peter gave us exactly the type of guidance and tools we needed to get started on our dog training. We look forward to continuing to work with him and would highly recommend him.

I contacted Jennifer because my cockapoo Teddy was having a hard time adjusting to our new home and was very unwelcoming when any guests would come visit. I was starting to have major anxiety at just the thought of guests coming to the door and knew something needed to be done. Jennifer came to my home and with a few tricks and the purchase of a gentle leader, Teddy is doing so much better with visitors! He has also started to learn simple commands such as "come" and "stay" and seems to be adjusting so much better to our new home. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who needs some help training their dog!!!

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.

I have been extremely happy with my dog training experience with Jennifer. She has been very helpful with getting both my dogs well adjusted in ever day life. I had two dogs out of control on leashes and out of control in my home. I now feel so much more confident with their behavior it has been my best financial decision.

We went for three sessions of private training, and not only is Rocket a totally different dog now, but I'm a much more confident now. Theresa is awesome at training dogs and she is teaching YOU all the techniques to be a good leader. Rocket is a much more confident and relaxed dog. More great things about Theresa: she's punctual, flexible, and very communicative. I cried happy inside during our training sessions because Rocket was progressing so well. I feel more confident now and we continue practicing with Rocket now and he's responding great. Theresa made me feel like I could text her any time if I had any additional questions or needed advice or a pep talk. The sessions were SO worth the investment!! Thanks Theresa so much for your help. Love Marta, Mariusz and Rocket

Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.

Lisa cares about you and your dog. She has a no nonsense way of training and understands what kind of training your dog needs to be obedient. She handled our Newfoundland, Kuma very well. Not only did Kuma listen to her but he knew that she loved him as well. She takes the time to train you as well as your dog so that there will be a smooth transition to home. We went on vacation while our dog was trained and Lisa sent us messages and videos of Kuma's progress. Kuma was a strong-willed male Newfoundland that was intent on training us to be his servants! Lisa is helping us train Kuma to realize that we are in control so that we can have a peaceful loving home environment. She is so affordable and worth every penny we paid her. If problems arise when you go home she is right there to help you through any issues. We absolutely recommend that you send your dog to Lisa. You w ill not be disappointed.

Lisa provided help with our 8 month old puppy with behavior training. She is a dog whisper. Our puppy is now super responsive to commands, this all after one week with Lisa. Lisa is kind and has a great reward based approach with training. Puppy is a breeze to walk, sits when we stop and stays put for almost 5 minutes now. He is consistently listening for commands verse making his own decisions. We are so impressed! If you are looking for confidence building in both your dog and yourself, Lisa is your trainer. She not only puts the time in with our puppy but takes time to make sure you know the commands, how to work consistently with them and follow through with each family member. In addition, Lisa has sent 2 follow up emails checking on his/our progress. Can't thank her enough!

Lisa is an absolute professional who loves the dogs in her care. I used thumbtack to get quotes and she had the most competitive pricing. We met at her 7 acre farm and immediately began training my dog and retraining me. She desires the people with whom she works to be the best dog handling parents possible. We started with a one week program and we're so happy with the results that we bought another week of training. I can't recommend Lisa more highly. She is the absolute best dog trainer in my estimation.

Jacqui is an awesome trainer! Through her training & suggestions, our girl Molly has been more responsive to us. Through Jacqui’s positive re-enforcement we also now know a much better way to communicate with Molly. Her methods are basic & simple to follow so we can follow up with Molly’s “homework”. If you want a great dog trainer, Jacqui is the lady for you. She comes highly recommended by our family.

I was dogsitting my parent's 12 year old Yorkie, who demonstrated classic signs of fear aggression and was very territorial in the home. When we took him for walks he would bark and snap at other dogs on the path. On his first visit Mike brought treats and notepads for us to take notes, and he stopped our little yorkie's barking in its tracks and demonstrated immense patience. Our dog even bit him on their first meeting, but Mike didn't miss a beat! With his therapy dog Finn we worked through our dog's aggression. Finn was never out of control and was as patient as Mike with our dog. The dog that we currently have compared to the dog that we initially brought to Mike are as different as night and day! We only had four sessions with Mike, but he is able to socialize off-leash with other dogs now (he doesn't play with them, but he's able to just be around them, which is so much better than before). And when we walk him he's now able to greet other dogs without trying to bite them, so we no longer get scared every time we see another dog walking on the street. Lastly, our Yorkie used to drag his feet while walking, trying to sniff every little thing. After our first few meetings with Mike he showed us how to get our dog to walk at a better pace, and to follow us better. Walks that used to take us an hour now take us about 20 minutes! I highly recommend his training! Not only did he drive out early every Saturday, but he also never complained about Davis Square's parking situation.

Almost immediately we noticed a difference with Larry. Mike was able to calm Larry down around other dogs (specifically Mike's dog Finnegan) and people in the house. We learned tips for improving walks and for counteracting aggressive behavior. Mike identified pain points for Larrry (e.g., stomach issues) and offered suggestions for things we could do to improve Larry's stomach issues. Overall, we are extremely happy with Mike's work; we would recommend to anyone wishing to correct aggressive behavior and make for a happier dog.

We just met with Kristin last Monday and evaluated the situation with our foster dog Zelle. We got a good feeling from her and even more importantly, Zelle seemed to respond well to her. We agreed to schedule several follow-up sessions to work on Zelle's fears and behavioral issues. It's too early to give an accurate star rating, but fingers crossed, so far so good!

We found Nathalia right before adopting our boxer-mix puppy. We had no idea what his temperament would be like since he was a rescue from the South and didn't have much information about his first few months of life. Nathalia met with us beforehand and helped us get prepared to welcome our pup. We also go to meet her incredibly loving and well-trained pooch, Paris who would become our Dempsey's best friend and mentor. Nathalia provided Dempsey with daily walks, including play-time with other dogs which was so important for his social development. Dempsey is a very timid dog and Nathalia worked tirelessly to train him to be a happy, well-adjusted dog. Nathalia also borded Dempsey on several occasions. He was always exhausted and happy when we picked him up! We knew he was in a loving home with his best friends and we couldn't be happier about that! Sadly, after 2 years of working with Nathalia, my husband and I moved away and had to say goodbye to her and Paris. Believe me that was one of the hardest moments I have had as a dog-parent. We will never find a pet-sitter as loving and attentive as Nathalia and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.

I don't have enough good words to say about Nathalia!! She is amazing. I am a first time dog owner and am so lucky to have found Nathalia to see my dog every day while I am at work. She is so patient and loving to all dogs and animals it allows me to rest assured that my dog is getting taken care of when I'm not there. She will bring some friends over to play with my dog and send an update and picture every day. I couldn't ask for anything more- I am 110% satisfied! I would highly recommend her for anything you need!

I was very impressed with For Dogs Sake from the beginning. Rebecca definitely has a way for dealing with problem dogs that causes them to respond gently. Mimi is a rescue dog and 13 years old. She has some aggressive issues with barking and people and the outside world. One of the greatest things I noticed, was how quickly Mimi got comfortable with her. Rebecca is very on point and was able to convince Mimi to respond with no barking, growling, and can only get better from here. Thank you Rebecca and For Dog's Sale. Were already looking forward to our next training session!

We hired Rebecca to help us with our new boxer puppy and his behavioral issues. She taught us clicker training for reinforcement of positive behavior and negative punishment for addressing the behavioral issues. She arrived promptly for each training session and often sent helpful tips and videos after each session. She even helped us to find a group puppy class to help socialize him. We were glad to find her and recommend her for your individual puppy training needs.

I needed a cat sitter for the holidays, and Yvonne responded quickly to my request. She came over to my house, met my cat, and we worked out the details, which included giving daily meds. When I got back, I was greeted by a happy cat instead of the grumpy one I usually return home to ;-) Yvonne kept detailed notes of her visits in a little notebook, which was a nice added touch.

Ashley was our trainer for a brand new rescue puppy, Rumney. Rumney was the first puppy for our family, and we went through an entire series of puppy classes and then adult dog classes with Ashley. With Ashley's guidance, our ability to work with Rumney, bring out the best behaviors, work to redirect undesired behaviors, and have a great relationship with Rumney has increased 1000%. Ashley was positive but firm, and she most importantly taught us, the humans, how to work with Rumney. We also went through the Good Canine Citizen class with Ashley and Rumney is proudly certified as a CGC dog. When a second rescue came into our home who was nervous and wrought with anxiety, Ashley responded promptly, thoroughly to any questions I had. We look forward to bringing our second rescue dog to Ashley for training as well. We are blessed to have had Ashley through this journey, and her keen ability to work with dogs and their humans has made a world of difference for us.

Noelle is my third try at finding a trainer for my dog whom I've had for only a year and he's now 4 years old. When I got him the person giving him away never told me anything of his aggressions which I now know he has. Noelle has been to my home a number of times so far and I love her. She is very patient, listens to me and knows that it takes time to not only train my dog but I need to be trained as well. She has given me a number of things to do with my dog that when implemented is spot on. The best part of the trainings is the one on one, especially if you have issues with your dog. I would highly recommend her as a trainer.

Noelle is hands down the best dog trainer! We have a fearful German Shepherd that always had a hard time with new situations involving dogs and new people. Every new situation was a struggle for us and we knew she wasn't comfortable either and wanted to better her life and ours. Through the use of obedience and giving our dog Mia a "job" to do we have been working on her fears. It is AMAZING how much she has improved and is an overall happier dog! Mia is always very excited to see Noelle and responds to her so well. Noelle has changed our lives forever and we will always be very thankful and grateful for it.

My poodle has a traditional poodle cut, always looks fabulous and Lesley is great at picking up my slack, meaning I don't do well with maintenance:).

Otto is our 9-month-old, 100 pound Newfoundland who we were having a hard time training at home. He's loving and smart, but he can be stubborn when he thinks he can get away with it! We were introduced to Zach and Leila and quickly started their two-week, basic training course. We couldn't be happier with how things went! Otto is world's better at walking on the leash, greeting new people, sitting, laying down, staying in place, using his climb, and following the basic instructions every owner dreams of. They have taught us with patience and kindness and we have definitely seen the results in our big bear. He loved spending the day with them and their other furry clients. We cannot thank them enough and are excited to enter their advanced training course in a few months once we get in some more practice of these basic commands at home. Zach will even be stopping by to help us more with counter serving! Thank you so much Koda K-9 Services!

Details
My dog, Winnie, is a pit bull mix, and probably a little more than a year old. I adopted her last October after she'd been left overnight tied to a tree outside a friend's apartment. She's very playful and incredibly affectionate with family members, but really nervous around strangers, especially men. So mainly, I'd like to teach her to keep calm and not bark at men we encounter when out walking. Three other, less major behaviors I'd like to address with training are: - Greeting people politely: learning not to jump up on us whenever we get home. - Not mouthing/nipping when playing (with people, not dogs): she’s gotten a lot better at this, but still does it when really excited. - Being less attention-seeking: When I’m at home and too busy to play, she’ll whine and keep dropping toys into my lap/jumping on me even after I tell her to go lie down.
