Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy

Peter was very helpful. He specifically helped us with our puppy's barking, leash manners and hyperactive behavior. We've had puppy training with our dog at Petsmart but hired Peter to help with these small problem areas and he helped us a lot in just 1 hour. I'd definitely hire him again if need be.

I have a 1y/o yorkshire and maltese mixed dog with serious separation anxiety and some behavior issues. I was going through the dog trainers in my area and Jennifer caught my attention immediately- the review was almost 100% positive, saying how helpful and responsive she is. We scheduled a meeting and I ended up training & boarding my dog with her for about a month. The result was impressive: he's crate trained, he becomes quiet in the car, no more excessive barking... She even found out his favorite raw food and changed his diet...He used to have kibbles and wouldn't eat much every day.. Now he finishes every meal within 2 mins! He looks super healthy now!!! I'm definitely gonna board my dog with her again. Training and boarding are both amazing!!! SHE'S THE BEST!!

We had Jennifer over to help us with our giant schnauzer, lab and terrier mix dog. She showed us the gentle leader and was very helpful with all the tips she gave us. We plan on having her back to help us with obedience training. She was great with our dog Abbie. Would definitely recommend her for training any dog. She has a great personality, professional and Abbie liked her.

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.

My husband and I chose to work with Lisa after communicating with her via email and meeting with her in person. We could easily tell she has a love for working with animals and the experience to back it up. We chose to work with her because of her experience with our particular dog breed, the location and surroundings and the incredible price offered. Our 10 month old puppy completed her first week with Lisa and has shown improvement. Our puppy's breed (Rhodesian Ridgeback) is known for their stubbornness, "make me" attitude and are distracted easily with their hound noses. We agreed with Lisa that another week would be appropriate for our puppy. I'm sure other breeds that are less stubborn may not even need more than a week. We are confident our puppy is in in good hands. We also greatly appreciate knowing we have a local contact we can reach out to if we need advice in the future about our puppy's habits or just the breed in general. I would highly recommend to anyone that has problem areas with training their dog or even if you are starting early with your puppy and would like your puppy to be trained for basic obedience skills.

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 was so reassuring and professional over the phone.. She was so honest with me about my training with my dog, we were actually able to resolve most issues with a phone consultation. She could have pressured me into signing on to a training program but she has integrity and the experience to recognize that my concerns over my dog were minor enough where I "didn't need her", but she was still caring enough to make sure she coached me appropriately over the phone anyway. Thank you Lisa...

My experience with Sandy and the Pawsitive Experience was outstanding. The first thing I liked and appreciated was Sandy’s approach to assessing my situation. After getting acquainted with our dog and what I had hoped to accomplish with the dog training lessons, Sandy tailored a program to our needs and didn’t try to heap unnecessary add-ons to my program. Once the lessons began, the thing that stood out was Sandy’s attention, not only to our dog, but also to my family (and children, in particular). Sandy took the time during each lesson to integrate my young children into the lessons so that they could get comfortable around our dog and understand that the dog was young and needed time to grow up just as they do. My best endorsement of Sandy is to say that because of her help, we absolutely love having a dog as part of our family and our dog loves being part of our family. If you want a friendly, knowledgeable and professional dog trainer, give Sandy a call.

My first experience with a private trainer for my pooch and I couldn't have asked for a better person. Sandy is professional yet down to earth, my dog, kokobutt, who is afraid of the world, loves her! "Aunty Sandy" is amazing at training and my dog has come a long way. I will continue to use her services and recommend her to anyone seeking assistance to train their dogs.

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!

During that time, she has shown our dogs to over 20 US and international championships including a GCH, and the FCI World Champion. (There is only one per breed per year.)

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.

We adopted a rescue dog 3 months ago. He is two years old and was a bundle of anxious energy. He became very attached to me and became jealous and reactive when my other dog or husband came near me. We signed up with Jess the 2nd week after he came to live with us. We met weekly for 6-7 weeks. Jess is an excellent trainer and was able to recognize his behavior right away. She listened to our concerns and has trained us to deal with an anxious reactive dog. He has made so much progress!! We had times when we weren’t sure if he was a good match for us. Jess gave us the confidence and taught us how to work with him to help him to be more calm and trusting. He is a great dog!! We love him. Thanks to Jess we feel we have been able to provide a good home for him and are so happy we met Jess when we did. We are going to continue to work with Jess and would highly recommend her!!

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.

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!
