Dog Training - Board and Train
Lloyd was wonderful with advice for training our 3 1/2 month old puppy-- particularly with potty training. We also had a great experience with L.E.A.D. Dog "sitting" our puppy for a couple weekends. She was well cared for, and happy when she returned to us.Oct 22, 2015Verified
Lloyd Mosher is a highly competent dog trainer. He is especially liked by my dog, Jax who has shown remarkable progress under his tutelage. Jax was completely out of control before I hired Lloyd. Although he's experience only one session with Lloyd, I can see that he's responding under Lloyd's instructions. Our first session was spent on teaching Jax who was the leader, and getting him to respond. I was impressed with Lloyd's manner, knowledge, and love for my dog. I recommend him most highly.Jan 9, 2016Verified
Lloyd was very knowledgable and a caring person, very friendly he came and picked up my dog, and when he returned (my dog) she was not the same!!!! his gentle touch was something I had never seen and everything he taught me to do, I still do!!!! plus it is still working!!!! the way he trains is much different ( in a terrific way) would so recommend him to who every is looking!! Lloyd and his wife are so well worth every penny!!!Oct 22, 2015Verified
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.Jan 18, 2015Verified

We hired Lloyd initially to help us with training our new puppy. I have experience with other trainers and I would have to say that Lloyd's knowledge, teaching ability and his patient and calm instruction have been exceptionable. We have also boarded our dog, and have had our puppy groomed by Lloyd. I would have to say that in all respects Lloyd Mosher, L.E.A.D. Dog, services has been excellent. I have recommended him to a number of dog owners. I believe anyone would learn a great deal from his years of experience.Oct 30, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Sitting: 1 dog $25, 2 dogs $22ea, 3 or more dogs $20ea. Grooming: $30-$100 (depends on the dog - view my website for more information) Training: 1 dog $125 (about 2hrs), 2 dogs $150 (may be over 2hrs), 3 dogs $175 (over 2.5hrs). Follow-up lessons are $65 for about an hour. Follow-ups are suggested after a few weeks, few months, first year and when another dog is being introduced. Ask about our puppy training, electric fence, and bootcamp training packages. See my website for more details!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer it is important to understand their concerns and to evaluate their dog. I typically can do that within the first 10 minutes of meeting them. This is done with the first training session in which I teach the owner the skills needed. I also work with their dog. Sometimes customers do not require a follow-up and are usually surprised at how much they learn in the first training session (which is two hours).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have graduated from West Virginia Canine College over 20yr ago. I have also completed a certificate in grooming at All Dogs Academy in Manchester in 2010. In August 2015 I updated my CPR and First Aid training through American Red Cross
