I ended up agreeing to take a pitbull scheduled to be put down, to a shelter in NH where he might have a chance. I couldn't bring myself to drop him off and tried to integrate him into the pack of 8 other dogs I had previously accrued. It wasn't long before it was clear that we were in SERIOUS trouble..several emergency vet calls for 3 different dogs, and 2 serious human injuries (from attempting to break up fights)..We called the NEVINS Farm Pitbull Training Team who basically said the dog would not be welcome in their "Diamonds in the Rough" class..If I were to surrender the dog he would be considered unadoptable ( given the extent of injuries to people) and would be euthanized. I got Lloyd's name through Thumbtack and initially was a little reluctant as I wasn't sure if someone who professionally focused on grooming, would have the knowledge base to take on this situation...9 dogs; 5 child ren, 4 horses, 2 donkeys, but no partridge in pear tree. It wasn't long before I was feeling so traumatized that I couldn't relax in my home.. vigilantly waiting for signs of trouble. After the dog jumped the fence and began to attack my horse as I fought with everything I had to pull him off, I brought him to Lloyd.It was a couple days befoer Christmas but an emergency. Lloyd wasn't sure how much training he'd be able to do over the holidays but thankfully agreed to take him. . Lloyd listened carefully and observed the dog and owner as I handed over the dog. I wondered how long it would be before Lloyd would call and ask that the dog be picked up...the call didn't come. Today Lloyd brought our dog back so Lloyd could work with the humans and the dog's training could be evaluated at home. Lloyd helped the dog understand that horses and donkeys are off limits, a leeson I am pleased to say all went well...it wasn't long before all dogs understood the rules had changed and there were new sheriffs in town...lol... It's only been a few hours since our session but it truly amazing how much the dogs (and yes, the people) learned... the dogs have made relatively few attempts to get on the furniture and there is little to no dissension in the ranks...there is still much work to be done, but it is clear that Lloyd has worked his magic and that this dog is alive today because of Lloyd's skills and patience.
I highly recommend Helen at No Monkey Business Dog Training for all of you and your dog's training/behavior needs. Helen is not only compassionate and patient, but she knows her stuff!
At Motivated K9, we offer basic and advanced obedience through competition-style obedience for pet dogs, personal protection and bite-sport (such as PSA, Schutzhund, etc.) training for working dogs, as well as aggression detox/behavior modification. We work in a group class setting as well as private lessons and even home visits, if necessary. Motivated K9's owner and head trainer, Joe Castagno IV, uses a balanced-training approach to dog training. We understand that every dog is different and a "one-size-fits-all" style and technique doesn't work for all dogs. Every lesson and package is custom fit to your needs and your dog's personality and abilities. In the beginning, we use a "verbal marking system", which is similar to clicker training, but we use our voice instead of a clicker to mark a behavior. Our motto is "Training One Human at a Time" because we believe it is vital for owners to involved in every aspect of their dog's training. In other words, we teach you how to teach your dog.
Dave has worked with my wirehaired griffon and me for 2 1/2 summers now. He's trained the dog for obedience, steady to shot and retrieving with excellent results. Dave is very good at what he does.
I highly recommend Dee to anyone looking for a wonderful, compassionate, hands on trainer for their dog. Dee knows her stuff.

I have been to several trainers in the area but Dee is by far the best. I have done group classes as well as privates and have never been disappointed.

We adopted our puppy, Bailey, in May 2011 at 3 months old and immediately started looking for a trainer. What I loved most about Zen Dog training is that they offer in home one-on-one training unlike some other places I had looked into. They also offered night/weekend training which was exactly what we needed. Also, the initial phone consultation was a great preview of what to expect. We signed up for the Perfect Pup package that gave us two visits lasting 2 hours each. Definitely worth it! We had Nayiri who was an absolute joy to work with. You could tell she had a great love for dogs! As soon as she entered our home and Bailey raced to 'greet' (i.e. jump on) her she was in training mode yet was still able to do the initial meet/greet with us. Nayiri took the time to listen to our specific concerns as well as tell us about common puppy issues and what to expect since this was the first time either of us had a dog under the age of 1. Nayiri showed us fun ways to teach Bailey common commands and how to advance once he got the hang of it. It was great that there wasn't a cookie cutter program; everything was tailored to what we wanted to achieve. We received great training material as a reminder once she left as well as access to their online site with an abundance of training videos and info for all stages of a dogs life. Nayiri was extremely flexible in terms of setting up the follow up appointment which we had to reschedule on our end a couple of times due to work conflicts. Naryiri was available through email for any follow up questions/concerns we had and responded quickly with advice which was helpful as we continued our training. The follow up meeting was great. We were able to discuss all the things that had happened with training and what we still needed to work on. Nayiri also gave suggestions on some next steps she thought Bailey was ready for. We recommend her to anyone who would like to train their dog and will definitely keep her info handy just in case we feel the need for additional training in the future. We definitely lucked out finding this service!

I am a dog trainer/human educator. I go to the home of the dog and his human and help them through everyday issues that are getting in the way of a harmonious dog/human relationship. My program is different from other dog training services that are out there. I start out with a free in-home consultation that we go over specific goals and issues the client would like to work on with the dog. This also gives the client time to get to know what I am like and what my program entails. After this consultation, if we decide to go forward with training, I present the client with a history of the breed of the dog we will be working with and a customized, working, training plan. I like to use the customized training plan as a living, working, guide that changes based on discoveries made throughout the training process. These training plans and any homework are always presented in written form so the client can review and fully understand the steps taken in each session. Clients love the flexibility of having the training done in the comfort of their own home, as well as the flexible time frames I can offer. They also love that we work on what they need to work on to enhance the relationship they have with their dog.
