     Boston Dog Training, BOARD AND TRAIN, Obedience, and Rehabilitation Services



































Your dog is unique, and our training programs are designed with this in mind! We use a multi-pronged, comprehensive, thoughtful approach that focuses on healing the whole dog. We strive to foster an inclusive environment where your dog listens with AND without a leash, with the ultimate reward of freedom and more privileges. Your dog will learn huge amounts of impulse control (yes, even around balls, cats, squirrels, and food), healthier coping mechanisms, and they will develop a newfound accountability for the choices that they make.


We train dogs to make good decisions during your time with The Loyal Hound!

Your pup will learn to be self aware as they move through their world and to live constructively, with grace, in yours. 





...“I want to sign my dog up! 

                                               So how does this all work?"


First, we will place your dog in the appropriate Board and Train Program, customized to their specific needs and your goals.




(for friendly dogs who just need on-leash and off-leash advanced obedience)



(for dogs exhibiting more serious, aggressive behaviors - advanced obedience included) 


The board and train component of each dog’s program is essential; having control on AND off leash will be essential for success!



Here is what each dog will learn in the Board and Train portion of their Program:

Your dog will be able to follow commands on and off-leash, without treats, in HIGH LEVELS OF DISTRACTION.  We will also address any on-leash issues such as pulling, jumping, and excessive barking, and modify behavior accordingly if your dog is exhibiting aggression. 

In each customized program, your dog will learn the commands that we feel will give them the greatest quality of life and inclusion.

Here are just a few of the behaviors that can be trained and addressed:


  • Heel (Loose-leash walking) in high distraction settings - no reactivity!

  • Down-Stay

  • Place Command 

  • Recall (Come) in high distraction settings

  • Crate Manners/Separation Anxiety

  • How to walk/run on the treadmill

  • Waiting for Food, and not rushing through open doors, or up/down stairs

  • Mouthiness

  • A "Drop" or "Out" Command

  • Counter-Surfing

  • Compulsive Barking

  • Impolite Greetings (Jumping)




Our immersive program builds massive amounts of confidence and helps your dog develop social skills and coping tools for interacting with (or just tolerating) dogs and humans, patterns new foundation behaviors, working the entire time toward creating a more stable emotional baseline.  Dogs receive private, customized training sessions, group training sessions, daily structured walks, controlled socialization opportunities with balanced dogs, and supervised play time between intensive training. We specialize in cutting-edge, low-level remote collar training and advanced behavior modification. Please take a moment to read about how remote collar training humanely and effectively facilitates clear dog-human communication here.  By the end of their stay, your dog will understand an entirely new way of being. Additionally, you will be armed with a better understanding of canine psychology, body language and proper handling skills, allowing you both to enjoy a stress-free life together. Our methods build confidence by teaching your dog to defer to you when they are uncomfortable, create space when they need it, and reliably make better choices in all kinds of situations, with minimal stress and confusion, and in a very reasonable amount of time.  


We are one of the few training companies in the Boston area with a successful track record when it comes to the rehabilitation of both human and dog-aggressive dogs, even those with documented bite histories.  Through intensive Rehabilitation Programs designed with compassion, structure, obedience, and the application of advanced behavior modification techniques, we have saved hundreds of dogs that would have otherwise been put down or given up on. Having your dog board with us during the rehabilitation process allows us to enforce a 24/7 lifestyle-routine, and provide the ideal training environment for such dramatic changes to take place.  Your dog will learn to trust the human leaders in their lives, and to follow non-negotiable rules and boundaries - these key principles and many more, are needed to re-establish balance. Finally, know that the safety and well-being of your dog is #1; all boarding dogs, as well as the facility's climate, are closely monitored, and under 24-hour CCTV Surveillance. 



...“But what about the other end of the leash?

                                    Do you guys also train the owners?”



YES! Our program design sets you and your dog up for a lifetime of success and results that actually last. As you can imagine, humans play a huge role in getting a dog truly back to good.  We set our clients up to succeed, and want to see you get the most out of your investment. We provide everything needed to help your dog get it right, from hands-on training in real-world scenarios to endless online resources available at your fingertips via FB and Instagram, to enjoy on your own time. 



Included in our program fee is all training equipment, in addition to continued owner education and support. We are one of the few local companies who proudly offer UNLIMITED ONE ON ONE PRIVATE FOLLOW UP LESSONS. These are made available to our clients for the lifetime of the dog, and can be scheduled with Eddie directly as needed if there is a specific scenario or environment you would like help navigating. 


 All dogs working at the facility must be up to date on rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and bordatella.

        Payment is due in full upon booking of a session or program.
