I can’t believe how much your training has improved my life. I get to go on walks through the neighborhood, I don’t waste so much time barking like a MadMan at all those silly little dogs. I’m learning to be in very good control when I see another dog while I am out walking and I come when I am called.


Our​ ​eighteen​ ​month​ ​German​ ​Shepherd​ ​has​ ​been​ ​nothing​ ​but​ ​successful​ ​in​ ​her​ ​training​ ​with  Kathleen​ ​and​ ​Dogtra.​ ​Our​ ​family​ ​adopted​ ​Shayna​ ​last​ ​February​ ​with​ ​a​ ​limited​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​her​ ​background, and​ ​were​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​surprised​ ​with​ ​her​ ​initial​ ​demeanor.​

Atlantic K9 Dog Training designs programs around you and your dog, to accommodate your Massachusetts lifestyle.

We specialize in three basic types of training:

Basic to advanced obedience training for all ages of dogs.This includes: Puppy imprinting (How our puppies are first introduced to training), raising a puppy correctly (prevention of behavior problems); Teaching basic dog obedience commands like heel,sit, stay, come and down; Invisible dog fence training and products; Crate and house training; Refresher obedience training for older dogs; off Leash training and more.

Behavior Modification for older dogs (including adoptees) and those that have been abused, abandoned, or traumatized. Training includes modifying behavior problems such as pulling on a leash and leash aggression; barking at people walking into the house or out in public; jumping on people, counters, furniture, etc; stealing food and food aggression; separation anxiety; shyness, and recovery from trauma (abuse, abandonment, etc).

Training for sanctioned dog shows and other competitions. – If you are raising a competition show dog, we can start training early to ensure that your dog learns the cues and routines that can make it a winner.  In Competition training all behaviors are broken down into small steps and put together as the training progresses.
