"Hannalore is an overall amazing person and is fabulous with all kinds of dogs. We've worked with Hannalore one-on-one and she was able to customize her training program to fit our family's needs. We also love participating in Practice in the Park- it's such a unique way to socialize and train your dog while having fun as part of the pack!"

A five-month-old chewing, biting, bouncing puppy, no fenced yard, long work hours, and our most recent dog experience was with our old yellow lab whose worst behavior was sneaking a piece of toast from the kitchen counter. We were a little desperate. I contacted several dog walkers and dog trainers, but lead time was weeks out, nothing was clicking, and did I say we were desperate? Hannalore agreed to meet us and our dogs within a day or two of our initial contact. From that first meeting Hannalore changed our lives. She thoroughly explained her training philosophy, made recommendations to lessen Lenny's anxiety (and ours), and suggested specific training methods. Even though Lenny has more hair than most of the dogs that Hannalore works with, we have seen dramatic improvement in Lenny’s leash walking skills and confidence around other dogs in just a few sessions. Hannalore works with Lenny on a weekly walk schedule and we do on-leash pack training on the weekends at the Arboretum. She and her team are dependable, skilled, and committed to helping your dog become a better canine citizen. Hannalore is not one of those trainers who will talk baby talk to your dog--or to you. She exudes confidence and competence. Hannalore and Boston for the Dogs have my and Lenny's highest recommendation.
