Obedience training is not just about teaching dogs to follow commands; it encompasses a comprehensive range of benefits for the dog’s overall well-being and the relationship between the pet and its owner. Scientifically, the process of training can stimulate a dog’s cognitive abilities, enhancing its problem-solving skills and mental agility. Research suggests that dogs, like humans, can experience a ‘Eureka Effect’, a joyful realization when they figure out a solution to a problem, which is often involved in obedience training.

From a behavioral perspective, obedience training is vital in fostering socialization skills in dogs. Regular training sessions expose them to various environments, humans, and other animals, which can significantly assist in reducing anxiety or aggression in unfamiliar situations. It also serves to strengthen the bond between the dog and its owner, enhancing mutual trust and understanding, which is crucial for a harmonious cohabitation.

Moreover, obedience training can play a substantial role in ensuring the health and safety of the dog. A well-trained dog will respond to commands like ‘come’ or ‘stay’, which could potentially prevent accidents or risky encounters with other animals. By maintaining control in precarious situations, dog owners can ensure the safety of their pets and others around them. As such, the value of our dog training services extends beyond simple compliance to commands, contributing to the overall well-being and safety of the dog and its environment.

I want to thank John Soares and his staff, for their remarkable training with our 5 year old German Shepherd, Duke. Prior to training with John Soares, my wife found Duke to be unmanageable when walking Duke outside. Duke became Dog Aggressive. Duke's tugging and barking had to be addressed.Having trained with John Soares years ago with success, I had total confidence, John and his excellent experienced staff would correct Dukes behavior. After John evaluated Dukes behavior, John explained to my wife and I in great detail, why Duke behaved in this manner. John designed a custom training plan to aid in Dukes training. Understand, No two dogs are alike.With Johns advice, my wife and I scheduled Duke for a Board and Stay Training. On a frequent basis during Dukes stay, John sent use training videos of Dukes improvement. John always maintain open lines of communication.After completing Dukes stay, John did a series of one on one training sessions with Duke, both my wife and I. The results were positive and enlightening.Both my wife and I applaud John Soares and his excellent and experience training staff with working with Duke. Having worked as a volunteer in a local kennel, I seen to many dogs surrendered for this type of behavior. I knew if anyone could correct this behavior, John Soares could.There are dog trainers and then there is John Soares. The teacher of trainers. Johns knowledge and experience with canines must be recognized as Outstanding. John has a God given Gift with training and communicating with Mans Best Friend.Both my wife and I highly recommend John Soares and no other.John with out doubt is a FIVE STAR TRAINER an a Great Guy!!!

Our 1 year old GSD just finished his board and train. We cannot say enough great things about John and his training. I mean just look at his history! You can immediately tell his passion for this is genuine. We cannot recommend him enough. Our Echo had a tough life before us. We all believe he was not dumped, but he was an escape artist and they forgot to microchip him on time. With that, he did not know proper manners. After the shelter found him as a stray, he was adopted and then surrendered THREE times by THREE different families. All because he lacked obedience, which was never his fault. John has not only trained Echo, but also trains us so that we are setting him up for continued success. We will definitely be continuing training with him. Thank you John and your team for taking great care of our boy.

Highly recommend!!! John is amazing at training. He and the entire staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our dog was properly trained. He provided clear instructions and responded promptly to any of our questions. We are forever grateful to John and his team. Our dog is so much better at walking— no more pulling me or dragging me across neighbors lawns or chasing squirrels!!! . Again I highly recommend this place for any dog training needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you John!

We highly recommend John as a trainer! After interviewing many trainers in for our 18-month old Rottweiler, and after he evaluated our dog, we though that John was the best at setting our expectations for her training, putting in practical terms what goals we could achieve and how we would get there. Our dog spent 5 weeks with John and we are really happy with her training. John not only trained our dog but the 4 post-board training sessions with us and our dog, trained us how to handle her as well. We found John to be really observant correcting our body language and verbal cues, explaining to us what our dog’s perspective is. This helped us to adjust our routines with her at home and proof his training. We look forward to her next training session with him as we make progress together!
