BFRB Dogs specializes in psych service dog training but also offers basic training and deals with mild to moderate behavioral issues. Using only positive reinforcement methods, I help clients build trust with their dogs, thereby improving their relationships together. Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer (ABCDT) credential, pending final exam. Previous dog trainer at a large pet store chain, training 20-25 classes per week with 1-4 dogs each hour. Seeking Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed credential under a CPDT-KA mentor. Current on scientific based methodology. I'm not old school--always learning and adapting! Sessions are done over Zoom video, unless you are within 15 ish miles of Beverly, MA and would like to meet in person. Video sessions allow me to coach you through the way you will train and be consistent with your dog(s) each day. Find me on Instagram, Facebook and Reddit @bfrbdogs
I enjoy helping humans connect with and understand their dogs on a deeper level. I love facilitating that understanding, and coaching people through how to read what their dogs are saying to them in each interaction. The moment clients enter a state of total symbiosis with their dogs is nothing short of magical. My favorite part of training dogs is actually training people!

I went from digital marketing to fostering dogs to taking the leap to do what I've always wanted to do, which is train dogs in a positive way!
Service dog handlers, first time puppy parents, persons with disabilities, dog moms and dads that need help with reactive pups on leash or need help making noises or other stimuli boring instead of scary
I taught a dog not to be afraid of human sneezes
Make sure you find someone who will customize their training to your situation, and not use a cookie cutter approach. Never use aversive/fear/correction methods on a dog with anxiety issues. Ask trainers: what can you tell me about how dogs learn best? That will give you insight into how they will treat YOUR baby!
Is your dog fearful? Does it guard food or toys? Do you need help managing dogs and kids? Do you need advanced or service training? Is your dog reactive to other dogs or people in certain scenarios?
