Training with Boston for the Dogs

Boston for the Dogs (BFTD) is a relationship-based company. We focus on a dog’s natural drive and instincts to better communicate with our dogs. BFTD strives to assess each dog thoroughly to find the best style(s) and tool(s) to meet the needs and goals of both you and your dog.

Our individualized training programs are designed to be easily integrated into your daily life. BFTD works hard at helping you and your family find the balance between work and play so you and your dog can have a better life-long relationship. We specialize in real world training so that you can do more with your dog.

BFTD offers multiple training options including in-home training, lessons out in the real world and group classes that offer real world training opportunities. Our structured pack hikes reinforce what your dogs learn during training. To get to know us better, head over to meet our trainers and check out our current class offerings.
