Unbelievable. I have a 12 week old Australian Cattle mix and almost no experience in training dogs. Peter is extremely professional, kind, and experienced. He came right on time to my house at 5:30AM and brought treats for my puppy and even gave me a clicker. I noticed a clear difference in my puppy and Peter helped me to understand more about animal behavior. I look forward to our next session this coming week! He is outstanding!

Love, love, love Courtney and Al. They have helped us out by giving us great training techniques that are possitive and extremely useful to our situation. They understand animal behavior and how to correct and redirect your pet. You can see how they interact with our pets that they are very caring and compassionate about what they do. Our dogs love the time they spend with them!!

Michael is fantastic! Very laid back and understanding of my dogs behaviors. By the end of the first session, I felt very hopeful and much more relaxed. Looking forward to next weeks sessions!

I brought my 5 year old English Mastiff here for behavioral training, she was attack on site aggressive with people, dogs, kids and cats. After just one session I noticed a change in her attitude, by the thrid session with Omni K9Training I could bring her around with no muzzle! It's a couple months after her sessions were finished and I can now bring her out in public, let her off leash and even allow people to pet her! I would have had to put her down if it had not been for the incredible training we received here!

Enika is an amazing horsewoman who teaches riders at every level. I’ve ridden half my life and never took a lesson until I went to Boston Equine. Enika has taught me how to ride properly to protect and support my horse. I couldn’t be more pleased with her training methods and how accommodating she is to her riders and boarders. Her knowledge of horse care and behavior is comforting...especially when you are leaving your horse in someone else’s hands. I’ve also had her train a young mare that was quite mean (biting) and also explosive with no warning...after 2 sessions with Enika she made significant improvements in both areas and now, 8 months later she is. Completely different horse! Kudos to Enika and Boston Equine...I’m a huge fan.

Great job with Finnley. Amelia went above and beyond to assist him when he fell ill- in addition to the training! She offered to come to our home after the turnover as well. Highly recommend her. It would be a huge benefit to offer in-home training services as part of the turnover. Amelia responded to our request to do so but it wasn't part of company turnover. Again, above and beyond!! Thank you so much for giving us a happy and well trained dog. It's life changing!

Blake was a great trainer in helping me with my dog who had crate anxiety. When I got my dog he couldn't even stay in the crate for an hour without hurting himself, Blake was caring and helped train him to where he can stay in the crate for full work days no problem. She also cared enough to teach him obedience and helped my dog become confident in being away from me. Being trained by her was the best thing that could have happened for my dog.

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.

My new dog (Rina) that I adopted a month ago from a shelter is very nervous and afraid of any type of noise and barks at people walking by the house, and at us when we try to leave the house. I have not even left her home alone yet. I realized how bad this was within the first few days and realized that I was going to have to find help for her (and me). I found Lee's name and read about her credentials and her experience working with dogs with the same problems as Rina and contacted her right away. I also saw that Lee believes in only positive reinforcement training ONLY which is very important to me. Lee responded quickly and began to send me information I could start reading re. Rina's behavior in advance of the Consultation we had planned. When Lee arrived for the consult, Rina did not make it easy for her at all to even step into the house - - barking at the "stranger" and carrying on for awhile! She was VERY upset! Eventually, with Lee's skills and understanding of the situation, she slowly made her way into the house, and after a few minutes, was sitting at our dining room table, and Rina was looking for more treats - - and then even laying at her feet! This was not an easy task, believe me. Lee told me that she specialized in these types of nervous, phobic dogs and she sure proved it to me yesterday! She took her time with Rina and really knew how to handle the situation. I was very impressed with that, and I learned a lot during the consult regarding Rina's distress and how we can help her. I plan to continue into a training program soon with Lee when she feels Rina is ready.

Katie dogsits for me when I go away on business trips or go into Boston for the weekend, and I could not recommend her more highly! She is caring and attentive to my dog; my dog gets so excited to see her. My dog is medium to high energy and Katie always tires her out. She is extremely knowledgable about dogs and dog behavior and has given me several tools to help keep my dog more mentally engaged and less stressed. Katie is punctual, she remembers all sorts of details about every dog, and she is my go-to whenever I need someone. Best dog sitter/walker in the Providence area!

I first met Ken when he volunteered at our animal shelter. He was so dedicated came in rain, snow exc. He worked diligently with our animals to help make them more adoptable and has a heart of gold. I highly recommend Ken for your training needs. If you want someone you can trust and who will love your animals as much as you then he's the guy.

Finding Maggie was nearly the best thing that happened for not only my dog, but my family! After having my kids and being a stay at home mom for a few years, I decided to go back to work, which is when it all started. My dogs separation anxiety once I went to work was the most shocking and worst thing I'd ever seen!! We were at the point of seriously considering giving her up because nothing was working! Even my neighbors had complained multiple times. I tried everything my friends had suggested, along with three different books, and even Google! Nothing stuck. Maggie was my last hope. It wasn't until we had our first home visit with Maggie that I saw the same dog I had known before for years! Maggie was the most patient, understanding, and knowledgeable trainer, and never once made me feel that I was a bad dog owner or at fault for my dogs behavior! We couldn't help but book her for weeks after just one visit after seeing progress so early on! Not only is my dog now able to stay home when I'm at work, but she is more disciplined, able to do more tricks than ever, and more social than ever having been on group walks with Maggie and fellow dogs! I truly feel like my family and I have a new found love and appreciation for our dog all thanks to Maggie! Couldn't recommend her more!!
