Back Bay Boston Dog Training

Harley, a gentle giant, completed the Puppy Program, just finished the On-Leash program and is getting ready to dive into the Off-Leash program. Training a dog is no easy task, but it’s an important one. Focusing on training is the perfect way to achieve harmony with your furry friend.

Our goal is to mold dog owners into dog trainers. A pet owner who thinks like a trainer will have a higher chance of success in rehabilitating a dog to his or her fullest potential.

Owner Tom Roderick has a passion and expertise for training dogs of all breeds, which led him to establish WalkyWalk in 2010. He’ll come to your Back Bay home for training sessions, making it as convenient as possible.

Back Bay Dog Training Programs

WalkyWalk’s aggressive dog training programs are meant to fit your dog’s personal needs. We offer a variety of intensive programs to fit your schedule and budget. Programs include:

  • Puppy Training: This three week training program is designed to guide you and your puppy through the early stages of your relationship. It’s the perfect starting point for raising a well-behaved pup. The one-on-one program covers housebreaking, socialization, and discipline.
  • Aggressive Dog Program: This four week course is to designed to tackle the problems you face with an aggressive dog. We teach owners specialized techniques to increase control and confidence. An aggressive dog can be unpredictable and scary, but we can help you manage this behavior.
  • On-Leash Obedience: This four week program will teach your dog all the essentials in obedience, including sit, lay down, heel, come here, and wait commands. In addition, we’ll cover some pet manners, such as not heating from the counter, not jumping on people, and not jumping up on any furniture.
  • Off-Leash Obedience: This more advanced eight week program will give you the confidence to bring your well-behaved pup with you anywhere. Imagine, a dog that listens even when there’s a squirrel on the loose.

What’s Everyone Saying?

Wherever we go, people always have something to say about our programs.

Seriously, Tom is the best trainer I’ve ever used. I have a lovely little pit that was experiencing some aggression problems towards other dogs and while its not something that will ever go away clearly, Tom taught us how to manage it effectively. ~Christen M and Billy D

Tom is a miracle worker.  No seriously…he is.  He worked with my dog and helped us get through some very difficult aggression issues. ~Ellen Z
