    Mike got our dog off to a great start in her new home. She came from a shelter so had a lot of anxiety, and was great with people but doesn't do well with other animals. Mike is very knowledgeable, worked with the whole family, responded quickly to our questions and concerns, and put us on the right track- Plus, his 'helpers' Molly and Finnegan are some of the best dog trainers around!

About this pro

Liberty Pet Coach, formerly known as Get It Right Dog Training, provides dog training and animal Reiki for dogs with behavior, anxiety or medical issues. I am a different dog trainer. Being certified in dog training and Reiki is helpful in reducing pet anxiety, which allows pets to better key-in on training methods and strengthens bonds with their owners. I am also trained and certified in CPR and first aid for animals, which many trainers have not done. I provide private, personalized dog training in your home or neighborhood. I coach pets and their owners in simple effective methods to have better behaved, happier animals. Each session is personalized to your pet's specific needs. This level of service not only affords owners convenience but allows for effective training of pet specific issues in their natural environment. I bring decades of experience working with dogs and other animals. In addition to private owners, I have volunteered my services at numerous animal shelters, including the Animal Rescue League of Boston, MSPCA as well as Scituate Animal Shelter and MSPCA. I've also done Animal Reiki on a number of pitbulls at Braveheart Rescue. My prices are reasonable and I am wiling to work with the customer.

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Getting to know the pet owner and the pet's problem is the first step. Then I work one on one with the pet and pet owner on correct methods and preventative strategies. I don't push people into things or try to sell them products they don't need. I am flexible and focused on helping them through my skills and experience in dog training and reiki.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
      One recent client contacted me to help with their dog who barked all the time. At my first visit to the home, I realized immediately that the dog needed to be socialized as it was not only barking excessively but was running behind people. The pet owners and I sat together to discuss a typical day for the dog. The owners were only letting the dog out to go pee or poop. They were reluctant to take the dog for walks because of its barking. This had created a situation where not only was the dog barking due to lack of exercise and socialization but I also suspected had become fearful of things – other people, dogs and unknown situations. The first thing we did was get the dog outside with the owners and get the dog tired. Using a leash, we ran the dog for about 15 minutes. Then I encouraged us to take the dog for a walk around the neighborhood. The owners were worried about disturbing neighbors with barking but I reassured them that was what we needed to do. The dog was very afraid at first and yes, he barked. However, he started to gain confidence. We walked him a mile and when he got home, he slept. At the next session, our goal was to help the dog with its fearfulness, which would address barking issues. I brought along my own dog Finnegan who is a certified therapy dog. The client’s dog was barking out of control as suspected but soon calmed down with Finn and they played together. It was a big step and the owner was quite happy. Later sessions with this pet have involved reiki to reduce anxiety as well as socialization with other dogs. The owners are pleased with how their dog is progressing.
    Coverage Area for Liberty Pet Coach, Dog Training and Animal Reiki is about 1+ miles of Norwood, MA.
