Verified review

Sandy is a talented professional who delivers training with a lot of skill, insight, compassion and humor. Please note that Sandy is actually training ME, the owner, who then trains my dog when she's not around. Sandy takes the time to understand both me and my anxious dog, Henry, and then structures our training sessions to help me be successful so Henry can be successful. While we still have a couple of lessons remaining, I can already see much needed changes in Henry's behavior. I highly recommend Sandy for training dogs of any temperment.

About

I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College and am a certified dog trainer with experience in obedience training, problem behavior modification and helping your dog become a well respected member of your family. I also work as a dog sitter and can exercise your dog while you are at work or away on vacation. I have experience with pets, service dogs and have helped train blind and deaf dogs as well. I am currently working with disabled clients training service dogs for a state agency. I teach basic obedience which includes look, setup, sit, down, stay, loose leash walking, leave it, go say hi, come, front, loose leash walking and heeling, and socialization. I also teach advanced obedience and am an approved AKC CGC Evaluator. My methods of teaching are all positive reinforcement. Before I became a certified trainer, I worked for years for the state as an assistant trainer working for disabled clients with service dogs. I also worked at a local pet store chain as an assistant trainer. My lessons are private and done in your home, my home or in a public location. The rates below are for private training. I am CORI checked through my job working for the State of MA, am dependable and have reasonable rates. References are available upon request from all of my clients who have been very happy with my services. I have gotten many word of mouth referrals from past clients who have had successful training experiences. I am in Milford and offer services throughout central Massachusetts. If you are outside the surrounding Milford area additional charge for gas and travel time applies.

About

We are unique as we have a no nonsense approach in training. We don’t try to impress you with fancy training techniques. Our no nonsense approach is easy and easy for our clients to learn. Love the dogs and the training of them. I get a lot of satisfaction taking a dog that doesn’t know what to do in the field and teaching/guiding it into what it was bred for.

About

Zen Dog Training uses science-based SPCA-approved positive-reinforcement training. Not once do we turn to methods that promote scaring or hurting dogs to communicate our expectations to them. No choke chains, prong collars, electric shocks... just love, affection and -- of course -- treats! Our goal at Zen Dog Training is to develop a plan for you and your family to ensure that your puppy grows up to be a confident, well-adjusted dog -- or that your adult dog finds his confidence! I will build a custom plan for you; this way, I can easily follow-up on your progress so you and your dog not only meet but exceed your training goals! Let me think, let me think... Oh, the puppies, of course! It is very difficult to have a bad day when most of it is spend in the company of adorable dogs, cute pups and dedicated families that are eager to learn how to effectively and gently communicate with their canine companions. There is a real sense of satisfaction after each visit with a client, and there really is no beating that.

I am a certified professional trainer by the K-9 Education Center in Newington (puppy, obedience, clicker, and advance training courses). Other services provided are dog walking and pet sitting while you're on vacation or to give a little TLC while you're gone for the day. I will also watch pets at local hotels while you're sightseeing. I offer a pet taxi service for the unfortunates. I just don't like to see a shelter animal keep going back to shelter every time the pet owner goes away. I want to give an animal the sense of security that it deserves.
