Cathy was Awesome!!! I was very pleased. She was so good with my elderly dog. He loved being pampered and even ran around like a puppy after his wonderful bath. Cathy did a great grooming job, nails, ears and even brush my Baby Bear's teeth... Good Price Too
Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy
Sandy's been very helpful with training our dog Maya. She is patient and thorough with our dog as well as with us! We would recommend her to anyone interested in in-home dog training.
Courtney is a very positive trainer that always goes out of her way to help me and my Service Dog in training. I learn lots of new things from her. If it weren't for her, I don't know what I would do since it is much harder than it seems to raise and train your own Service Dog. With Courtney at K9 Positive Training, we think finishing Kodak's training as a Service Dog is possible.
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.
It was excellent I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and of course my dogs did!!!!!
Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.
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.
My experience has been wonderful! Jess treats my puppy like one of her own and I know they are both happy to see each other. Jess is very responsive and I have complete confidence in her taking care of my pets when I'm not home.
Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!
We love common Sense K9 Chelsea has done an amazing job with our labradors in training and obedience . I highly recommend to any new Puppy parent or for an adult dog that needs better control.
I’ve worked with Lynne Panno for many years with my dogs. She is very knowledgeable, patient and knows dogs and training methods extremely well. Training is really for us owners and Lynne is patient but quick to correct our errors - so that we are consistent in our training with our dogs and they always know what we want them to do.
Vera has been incredibly helpful for my dog, Nala, and me. She tailors her sessions to the people and dogs in her class, so everyone is getting their issues and needs met. She's big on 'meeting you where you are at" and helping you understand your dog so you are able to meet them where they are at. When she gives you feedback and suggestions, she is sensitive in her approach and you end up feeling more confident in your ability to train and interact with your dog, rather than feeling like you're a complete failure. You definitely have to put in your fair share of work outside of classes, and she checks in with you to see how you're progressing, which helps hold you accountable. Since beginning our work with Vera, I have noticed that Nala is calmer and looks to me more often for guidance. She responds more quickly when I correct her as well. Nala and I have more work to do but Vera has helped us get the ball rolling in the right direction. I highly recommend Vera for dog owners who want to have a more cooperative 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.
Auntie Maggs does a lot of fun activities and training with all the dogs. She is very sweet, caring & will help anybody who needs it. My dog loves her and always comes home so happy from being with Maggie, thank you so much for everything you have taught her & will teach her in the future! Keep it up, you're the best!
As I type this our dog is here for the weekend we have used Erin before she is awesom yogi has fun we get updates every day with pictures highly recommend!
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 teach dog owners how their dog's mind works, and how to connect to the dog in a way it understands. I teach the dog owner how to be an effective pack leader so the dog will follow the owner out of respect, not because they have food treats.

I feel that my skills are more about understanding the dog and how he/she learns. When people understand that human language is not the one that works when you have a dog that has a issue that doesn't seem to get better but just keeps getting worse when you can learn to speak dog an know why it works you will see happy owners along with a very happy and healthy relationship with the dog
