Cathy helped me take my dog from antisocial to social and playful!
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.
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.
Michael is fantastic! Very laid back and understanding of my dogs behaviors. By the end of the first session, I felt very hopeful and much more relaxed. Looking forward to next weeks sessions!
Fantastic experience!! I noticed a difference in my dogs behavior almost immediately. Very flexible and easy to work with. Thank you Jess for being so wonderful.
Michelle took the time to understand our dog, a Tibetan Terrier, and his specific issues. We worked with her in our home, on walks around our neighborhood, and in group settings. With her positive reinforcement techniques, we feel much more comfortable managing our dog's behavior--both inside and outside our house.
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.
Excellent is an understatement. This is more than just obedience training. It is insight to the dog/human relationship, from the dogs point of view. I didn't think I could change the behavior of my 4 1/2 year old dog, but I was mistaken. I just needed to stop doing all the wrong things. Don't go elsewhere just to realize you should have made Progressive Canine Dog Training and Behavioral Services your first stop!
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 Years. 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.
Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.
I've worked with Kim with my terrier mix one on one and at a leash-reactive training class and highly recommend her in either setting. She was so tuned into my dog and really clearly has a way with them. She's also a terrific teacher in a group setting and can corral a class of a dozen dogs (and owners!)! Kim gave me specific techniques that I have continued to incorporate on my own that have helped considerably. When we worked together she just seemed to know the challenges beneath my dog's behavior - she is a keen observer and listener to both people and dogs and she really knows her stuff. A gem.
Five stars Is not enough stars to rate Katie from the Wagging Leash!!!! Katie is truley blessed with a Gift when it comes To working with animals!! She is extremely talented And you do not have to give Your dog another thought while with Katie!! Katie was Truley a life saver when it came to our high energy year old lab Vegas! She treats each and every dog like her own and i sincerly mean that! We saw a HUGE difference in our dogs behavior after we hired Katie it is worth every penny!!! Keep up the GREAT work Katie we are forever grateful for what You have done and most of all Vegas absoultey loves spending time with you!!!
Bea has excellent knowledge and a great philosophy on positive reinforcement training. I first attended a puppy kindergarten class over 10 years ago with my puppy German Shepherd. I now am enjoying and continuing to learn about dog behavior and communication with my Shiloh Shepherd by private lessons and socialization classes. It has helped reinforce the bond between my dog and myself and honors my dog's intelligence and needs to learn. Bea is fantastic at her art as a dog behaviorist.
We are so happy that we found Erica for dog walking services through Thumbtack. She was very quick to get back to us and even came over to meet us in person. She is very knowledgeable about animals as she used to be a vet assistance and she is extremely professional. She is very flexible to work with your needs and she is happy to adjust times and visits per your pet needs. Her prices are great too for the quality service you get! We feel very at ease knowing she is taking goof care of our puppy when we are at work.
Great service! My animals loved her!

I love animals, and I love taking care of them. I think we all do, but in those busy days, sometimes there is not enough time to take care of our best friends. So that is why I want to help you and bring a smile on your pet's face.
I love animals, having grown up with dogs and cats in our family. I have two cats, a male and a female. I understand how to take care of animals, including but not limited to, cleaning cat boxes, feeding, grooming, and walking. I even do animal massages. What can I say? Animals love me!
