I just wanted to tell you some great news – Duncan is amazing – he’s a totally different dog! He doesn’t bark at me. He’s really mellow in the kitchen and when we are hanging out. He’s not chasing Brady at all! (Brady is her 3 year...

Small Dog Training

Trainer : Alana Meserve

We attended the puppy class run by Alana Meserve in Belmont.  It was excellent.  Our class had puppies ranging in size from 50 pounds to my 4-pound chihuahua.  Alana helped all the dogs (and owners) feel at ease, have fun and most importantly, train our dogs.  She is...

Aggressive Dogs

Trainer : Alana Meserve

Reactive Dog Training

Reactive Dog Training

Trainer : Gordon Fontaine

I’ve taken Moxie out on several walks since you left and instead of dreading the sight of another dog, I’ve been excited to see one approaching. I do yoga breath and jolly talk and turn her back to look at me and, lo and behold, she barked once or twice...

After being referred to Gordon at Zen Dog Training numerous times by our vet, I finally called because my two-year-old terrier/border collie mix Jake wouldn’t allow visitors in the house, I couldn’t control him on a leash and he snapped at a friend’s...
