Positive Reinforcement Dog Training

Positive Reinforcement Dog Training

Trainer : Gordon Fontaine

My family got a 8 week old puppy a month ago and the best thing we did in prep was to get the puppy training package at Zen Dog Training. Gordon at Zen Dog knows a ton about dogs (and people) and is easy to work with.  He helped us prioritize what to focus on and...

Virtual Dog Training

Trainer : Emily Fleming

Thank you so much! Emily was fantastic to work with, and could not recommend more highly. We found Zen Dog during quarantine with our 11-week old puppy, beginning with training by Zoom (knowing that there would later be a safe yard visit if we all felt comfortable)....

Puppy Training

Trainer : Emily Fleming

We had a wonderful experience working with Emily Fleming at Zen Dog. Our sheepadoodle puppy started off relatively well-behaved, so we didn’t think we had that much to do. But we were totally shocked by how much he still had to learn and everything we were able...

Virtual Dog Training Sessions

Positive Reinforcement training made a big difference

Trainer : Gordon Fontaine

We had a great experience with Gordon’s puppy class in Arlington! He’s so knowledgeable and patient, and he balances the class so that the puppies get to practice their training, but also get to play and socialize while Gordon watches. The socialization...

Puppy Class with Neil

Trainer : Neil Simmons

If I could give 6 stars I would. My wife and I just completed the 6 session puppy class with Neil and it was fantastic. The main draw for the classes is the socialization with other young pups, but we still learned plenty from Neil that wasn’t covered in our one...

In Home Training

Trainer : Neil Simmons

We worked with Neil from Zen Dog Training and cannot say enough good things about him!! He’s come over to our house for two 90-minute training sessions over the past couple months and has worked wonders with our rescue dog. All the training tips he’s given...

Separation Anxiety

Trainer : Neil Simmons

Neil has been a fantastic help! Our dog was having separation anxiety when we would leave the house which was leading to accidents. She would have these accidents even if we left for just a few minutes! Thanks to Neil and the plan he helped implement, our dog is now...
