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.
We made so much progress training our puppy in just the first hour... thanks to Peter's guidance! I can't wait to see what we can do in the future.
Theresa is great! Flexible and encouraging with our puppy's training. Highly recommend her!
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!
We rescued a shepherd/malamute mix puppy from a shelter out-of-state and hired Sandy to help us with our new addition to the family. Sandys experience, dedication, patience and love for dogs is remarkable! From the first few sessions, I was amazed how this little puppy was on his way to become a good listener and follow commands. She is always prepared with each weekly lesson and makes it fun instead of making it a chore. She provides handouts each time she visits so that the family can continue with the lessons. Our puppy is now five months old and loves Sandy when she comes over for training. When we visit our favorite pet store, we are always given compliments on how well our puppy behaves and we credit this to Sandy for training Diesel and the family! I would definitely recommend Sandy to anyone who would like assistance training their dog. 5/5. Heidi P
I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.
I have two dogs a German Shepherd and a husky they are both great dogs just needed help with more training in obedience after just one session both of my dogs are doing amazing and listening even better. Not only does he show you how to work with your dogs but he is a great person and willing to answer any question and he also doesn’t talk down to you or talk you like your stupid which was my experience with other trainers.
It's hard to know who to choose when hiring any professional. I have an 8 month old German Shepherd, and after doing much research trainers, I decided to go with ACT K9. I was so impressed from the very beginning! During the evaluation, I met John and Lindsey and 2 of John's dogs. I have never met more trained dogs in my life. John's interaction with them was amazing. A week later we started training my dog, Sasha. After one lesson, she was already learning to heel. We have only had 2 lessons so far, but Sasha is already listening so much better. John and Lindsey really know what they're doing. The training is as much for me as it is for my dog. I'm so happy I chose them!!!
Haven’t started training yet. I hired her for her knowledge and experience in training dogs. So easy to talk to. Answered all my questions.
We have an older Doberman and a new puppy Doberman, Krystal was excellent. We really like her style of training and we've already noticed improvements after only one session. We plan on continuing to use her services!
Yvonne is AWESOME !!! We adopted 2 shelter dogs and found Yvonne to help us understand them. We have had 4 other dogs, went through training with all of them but we have learned so much more from Yvonne!! We HIGHLY recommend her she knows her stuff !!!!
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!
Noelle was great! We came to her for aggression and destructive behavior, and she surpassed everything we expected. We got Riley back a whole new dog!! She came to our house during training and coached us through her training process. We could not be happier with her and the care and training of our dog. I'd give her 6 stars if I could!
My puppy was skittish at first but she settled right in and he even surprised me with his actions afterwards she did a very good job I think my puppy has a new friend
Competent, caring professionals who provide top quality dog training services. They take the time to understand the needs of both the owners and the dogs. Great experience!
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.
Absolutely unbelievable experience thus far. Friendly, timely, flexible availability and location. Great with our puppy and he is already substantially improved with only 2 sessions. You will not be disappointed with Sandra!
I was nervous about bring my puppy Finn back to Boston after having a couple days of training in RI, but she helped me to feel more confident to take care of him and continue with training on my own for a few days. Her knowledge about dog behavior really helped me to under stand what I need to do to help my puppy understand me, and for me to understand him. I can't show enough gratitude that she drove all the way to Boston to help me, and I would recommend her to anyone dealing with training.
I want to bring safety, peace and resolution to your home with positive reinforcement training. I train all types of dogs.

No dog is a bad dog. They might have just learned bad things. We can fix that. I do training and care, and I am certified in animal CPR. I have experience handling 30 plus dogs off-leash at the same time.
