Great experience! I took my German Shepherd dog here to get trained. I did three lessons and accomplished everything I wanted to (come, heal, stay, sit). She was an aggressive walker and would not listen to basic commands before this training and now she walks right beside me and listens to what I say. Matt is amazing and really cares about your dog as well. He is very friendly and will answer any questions you may have. I would highly recommend to get your dog trained here if needed!Sep 10, 2018Review from GoogleConnell's Dog Training LLC's reply
I’m so glad I was able to help you with Sage! Thank you.
Our 1 1/2 year old french bulldog had food aggression, toy possession, took us for walks, and didnt listen to a command unless he felt like it. After trying to get control on our own and failing we contacted Matt for much needed help. He never made us feel judged or like bad dog parents for having an out of control dog. He addressed each of our problems and now our frenchie is a well behaved boy thats a pleasure to take on walks. We are so thankful we found Matt!May 16, 2018Review from GoogleConnell's Dog Training LLC's reply
Thanks for trusting me with your dog! Finley was a joy to work with.
My powerful, headstrong, rambunctious 10-month old Golden Retriever and I just completed three training sessions with Matt. I traveled from southern Maine each time and it was worth it!! My sweet Elsa, quiet & calm indoors, turned into a danger both to myself on-leash and to herself off-leash at the beach we visit daily. Im a senior and Elsa pulled me down several times on-leash resulting in a couple injuries. One day she ignored my frantic Elsa come!!! on the beach as she swam through the waves toward the open sea chasing cormorants. Having tried every other method of control (group dog class, the Gentle Leader, martingale, choke collar, full harness with front and back lead, long leash, short leash), I decided to try e-collar training as a last resort, because I wanted to prevent a serious personal injury and because I wanted to protect Elsa from drowning, getting lost, hit by a car, etc. Our world had sadly narrowed down. I had envisioned us enjoying outdoor adventures together but instead it narrowed down to leash walking which was a very unpleasant struggle, hurt my back, and certainly no fun for Elsa. I wanted our world to open up but I felt trapped because I couldnt control Elsas overwhelmingly powerful enthusiasm & natural retriever instincts. Aware, my daughter urged me to give Matt a try because he had successfully trained her three lovable unruly dogs. She assured me it would be worth the effort, travel, and investment in a happy life with Elsa. And so I traveled to Massachusetts for each of the three lessons with Matt. From the very first session I saw a dramatic change in Elsa. I was astounded. From that day forward, my leash walking problem disappeared. I love walking with Elsa now!!! I can take her anywhere and I now feel safe that she wont knock me off my feet. She heels at my side off leash and comes when I call her, no matter where we arebackyard, woods, beach. She doesnt gleefully lunge at new people anymore. We are now able to achieve certification as a Therapy Dog team to do volunteer visitations at local facilities. Matt was great working with Elsa but also with me. He was very professional, clear in his teaching methods, provided plenty of opportunity for my questions, expert at use of the e-collar device, and sensitive to Elsa. As I look back, I wish I had gone to Matt FIRST instead of last. That certainly would have saved me a lot of money considering all the purchased dog accessories that didnt work; but more important, my world with Elsa would have opened up sooner. I highly recommend Matt as a dog trainer to anyone who wants all the joys of a well behaved canine companion. Thanks so much Matt!!!Jul 13, 2019Review from GoogleConnell's Dog Training LLC's reply
Thank you Gail for trusting me to help you and Elsa. I’m glad to hear you were so thrilled with my services!
Matt was awesome and my dog, Wags, liked him. Im almost disappointed that Wags learned so quickly and we didnt get to have more sessions. Matt is very knowledgeable and he understands separation anxiety. I would definitely use Matt again, if needed, and I would highly recommend him for anyones dog training needs.Jul 15, 2019Review from GoogleConnell's Dog Training LLC's reply
More lessons are always an option; but I’m happy I was able to improve Wags’ demeanor in such a short time. :) Thank you!
Matt was extremely helpful helping my wife and I train our two puppies. As first-time dog owners, we were given a ton of great tools and techniques that help us help them develop the right behaviors. Matt is a wonderful for resource for anyone who needs to train a dog!May 12, 2019Review from GoogleConnell's Dog Training LLC's reply
