Dog Training & Behavior Consulting

Serving Brookline, Boston, Greater Boston & Eastern Massachusetts since 1996

Dog Training

Whether you’re looking for the convenience of in-home private lessons or want to join a group class, I offer positive reinforcement training for fast, fun and lasting results. My goal is to teach you to how to prevent problems from developing and I accomplish that by teaching you how dogs communicate and learn.

Behavior Issues

Is your dog fearful, anxious, reactive or aggressive? A comprehensive behavior consultation will get you started on the right path. Serious behavior issues are my specialty. I am a veterinarian recommended certified dog behavior consultant.  Learn more about my process here.
