"I worked with 3 other trainers in the past to some success but felt that the training lacked the next level I really needed to help my dog live a happy and stress-free life... and then I met Mary Jean! Mary Jean of Canine Cure is hands down the best trainer. She has plenty of experience with over 10 yrs under her belt and she was previously a teacher which gives her the superpower of communicating her lesson/advice to you clearly and effectively. Mary Jean studied at the Academy for Dog Trainers under Jean Donaldson, who, if you've done your research, is one of the most respected trainers in the business internationally. Mary Jean is a force-free, rewards-based trainer (positive dog training). She covers a large area of New Jersey, including Jersey City where I live! She has a passion for understanding and helping fearful dogs and recently wrote an excellent article about fearful dogs in Bark, the Pet Professional Guild magazine. My training session with Mary Jean was to improve my dog Maggie's behavior outside. Maggie is a stress-ball once she steps outside and reacts in varying degrees to dogs, skateboards, loud noises, kids - basically the world. When Mary Jean came to my apt, we went over the initial notes I completed as requested and discussed in detail plans of action for everything from surviving thunderstorms, the importance of high-value treats, etc. Mary Jean explained what was going on inside of Maggie's head when she's inside the apt, outside on a walk, at daycare and it all made sense! We then ventured outside where Mary Jean worked Maggie using a clicker and high value treats to which Maggie quickly responded to. After our training session, Mary Jean provided a detailed recap of our meetings including homework. She answered all of my follow-up questions and best of all, I've been seeing significant improvement in Maggie's behavior! Only time and my commitment will tell but now I feel fully prepared and armed with a great resource to achieve my goal - to let my dog just be a dog!"

"We couldn't be any more pleased with our training from Ken at Caliber K-9 and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for training for their dogs. We have a 4 year old Boxer mix named Wrigley who started nipping at our 8 and 11 year old children about the time that I got pregnant. With twins on the way, we needed a solution for our dog quickly. We interviewed multiple trainers including a few very highly rated trainers in Boston. We were told a variety of things about our dog including that the only option was the put him down. My husband and I were at a loss of what to do and didn't have a good feeling about what anyone was telling us. And then Ken came over for a free evaluation. He was the only trainer to focus on Wrigley just as much as us. This made a huge impression on us, along with Ken's approach and dedication. We decided to hire Ken on the spot without needing to discuss it privately. I'm writing this during our fifth week of training and our dog isn't even home for good yet. I hope this shows how much we would recommend Ken. Wrigley was a challenge for him due to the "squirrels in his head" and his lack of drive. We feel confident that we will be able to take over when Wrigley comes home and continue onto a better path with Wrigley in our home. Ken has boosted his confidence, addressed many handling issues, taught him obedience and taught us and our children how to continue the work at home. Wrigley came home for a night's stay this week and things were great during the trial run. The other trainers sold an idea of a guaranteed fix and then would send your dog home. This just wasn't realistic for our situation. Ken has offered to keep Wrigley for an extra week at no cost in order to have a smoother transition when coming home. We've also discussed additional ways that Ken can help us in the months to come including helping me take Wrigley to an anxiety-fueled vet appt., boarding Wrigley when our twins come and helping to introduce Wrigley to the new babies. Also, the one-on-one attention that your dog would get with Ken is far and above what anyone else is offering! I feel like Ken could double his price and still be worth it compared to the others we interviewed. We feel so incredibly fortunate that Ken was available when we needed his help. He's also a friend now for many years to come. You won't be disappointed in hiring him."
