Off Leash Dog Training
We had the best experience!! I have so many positive things to say about Mike and North Boston Dog Training! My 2 year old typical lab just finished the 2 week training. We signed her up because she can be a real brat! We wanted help with walking on leash without pulling and basic commands that she would defy when she felt like it. He has done ALL of that and MORE! She walks without pulling, can walk off leash and will listen to all commands when given. He set these expectations for her and she has really picked up on them. I could not be happier. My dog loved going to work with him and I honestly didn't want it to end. Mike was so helpful each morning and afternoon. He was kind and really cared about our dog. Don't even think twice and call Mike to help you!
Mike Harrington trained Tilly, our 4 year old English Bulldog, and me. We were having issues with aggressive behavior when she was frightened-- which was growing from passing cars on daily walks to the vacuum in the home, and it was all becoming unlivable and unsafe. Mike understands the dog's behavior and the point of view behind it-- and with that, can teach the owners to approach and manage the dynamics successfully. It takes a great deal of wisdom, experience, and patience-- all of which Mike has. With this, re-training, even of a dog who was not a puppy, was possible and done in no time at all. We have lots of reps to do on our own to get to maximum benefit, but that's the beauty of Mike's approach... he teaches the owner to do it right and you can then proceed independently, with the dog benefiting and responding to the now appropriately defined and managed situations. If you are even wondering if you need this kind of dog (human) training-- you do! Mike Harrington is the answer.
Unlike Pet Supply Chain Stores, Dog Training Franchises or Online Dog Training Graduates, our High Level Training
technique is specialized and proven to create an atmosphere for personalized interaction and effective training.
Group Obedience Classes are like an assembly line, where a large number of dogs are pushed through with minimal results.
Dogs equate behavior with environment which is why training at the same location or in a building is not as effective.
Once the dog leaves that area, it doesn't know how to behave if the training is not consistently reinforced.
North Boston Dog Training operates on a much smaller scale and produces training that is head and shoulders above the competition.
With 30 years of expertise, having successfully trained thousands of dogs from all breeds, temperaments and combination's of both.
Each client receives clear instruction and the finest dog training available in the Greater Boston area.
There are many people who claim to be dog trainers, but just being a member of trainers association
that anyone can join for $60.00 does not make you a good dog trainer.
We will work with you and your dog every step of the way to success!
Having your dog trained to be under control without a leash, allows your dog the freedom they deserve, the opportunity to get the required daily exercise to keep them happy, healthy and well behaved.
Mike was awesome with our 5 month old Basset Hound that preferred to follow his nose than listen to anything we had to say. We did the 2 week board and train with him and wished we did it sooner. Scooby came home a perfect gentlemen and we felt confident and equipped with the information to continue his training. No more eating gloves or socks from the sidewalk, no more nipping or biting, no more aggression, no pulling on the leash. A completely calm and mature dog! Mike fixed it all! He was also very accommodating with working around our work schedule, great and professional business all around. HIGHLY recommend for any dog owner and we will definitely seek Mike out again for future dogs that join our family.
We cannot say enough about Mike Harrington. He is a miracle worker. We were referred to Mike by a friend. I can see why. Mike is a miracle worker. Our 1 year old golden was a total puppy. Jumping, playing, and always demanding attention. Walking him was always a challenge. This puppy is 67 lbs! After the two-week course, he is just not the same dog. He walks off-leash and never leaves my side. He is attentive and listens. Enzo loves Mike as soon as he sees the building he can't wait to get to him. We have given Mike visitation rights anytime. We love Mike for helping us achieve what I never would have thought possible. A well behaved 4 legged buddy! The Magnifico Family
Mike Harrington is the consummate professional dog trainer. We adopted a year old Boxer Caesar who was a sweet dog. But he was anxious and not confident. Following a phone consultation with Mike we decided to have Caesar do a two week in house training series with Mike. Following completion of the program I met with Mike for an hour to work with Caesar to learn how to continue with the training Mike began with Caesar. He is a very different dog: confident and well mannered. Thanks Mike!
Our 10 month old Golden Retriever, Ziggy was out of control! It was so bad, we were discussing re-homing options. In just 2 short weeks, Mike has transformed him into a perfect gentleman! Thank you, Mike!
Our 80 lb puppy was pulling, yanking, and dragging us everywhere we went. She would chase dogs and leaves and occasionally jump on people. She would come when called, maybe 50% of the time. We signed her up for a two week training with Mike and in ONE day, he had her heeling and walking by our side. Things only improved from there. She is obeying all commands and people can't believe how well behaved she is. Can't recommend Mike highly enough!
Luna's went for a 3 week Stay & Train with Mike Harrington and made a complete turn around, she went from lunging at people and having to wear a muzzle to a well behaved, non aggressive, off leash trained dog!!!!
