Private Dog Training

Please contact Karen at 617-413-1510 to schedule an appointment

My intent is always to balance, enhance and strengthen your relationship with your dog. I have over 25 years of hands on experience working with all types of pups,dogs and their families. 

Regardless of whether you have a new puppy, any age adult dog, rescue dog or a dog with serious behavior problems, I can help you with your dog.

Using positive reinforcement modification techniques, I will teach you to manage your dog safely while I teach and instruct you to replace the bad moments of behavior with good moments of behavior from your dog.
I will explain and demonstrate and give you experienced, humane techniques to start building  foundation behaviors for pups/dogs starting as early as 8 weeks of age.
