Happy as a Clam

As a premier Dog Trainer based in Massachusetts, I make sure to give my clients and their pets the utmost attention and dedication they deserve. I’m proud to showcase the following testimonials from some of my valued clients. Check out what’s being said about me, and see why your pet should be training with me, too. Contact me now to get started.


"Dunkin is home and is doing very well. We can't thank Ryan enough for all his hard work with our dog. Dunkin has only been home for one day and he is like a new dog. We are able to reinforce all the skills that he has been taught. Ryan showed us everything we need to know, and gave us a folder with a three page report of what Dunkin is capable of doing. We would highly recommend Champ K9 Training if you are looking for someone who is willing to put their heart and soul into what you would like to see improve with your pet. I would be more than happy to speak with anyone who is interested in sending their dog to Champ K9 Training. Ask Ryan for my contact information.."
