Blue Max Dog provides dog training through personalized in-home lessons as well as through a variety of group classes. We are happy to help you evaluate the type of training and schedule that will work best for you and your dog. Blue Max Dog has helped hundreds of pet dog owners to improve their relationship with their dog by using gentle techniques and positive reinforcement methods. Our approach is simple, effective and an enjoyable experience for dogs, owners and their families.

Our personalized in-home obedience lessons and behavior consultations are a great alternative to obedience classes for dogs that might be over-stimulated by a group class, as well as for busy owners with hectic, unpredictable schedules. The instructor will teach your dog basic commands (e.g., walk nicely on the leash, sit, down, stay and come) and will cover a wide range of canine behavior modification programs as needed, to help with:

  • Aggression
  • Shyness, fear, phobias
  • Separation anxiety
  • Housetraining and other elimination issues
  • Compulsive behaviors
  • Guarding people, toys, food
  • Jumping, chewing, nipping

The lessons are approximately one hour long. The price for one lesson is $85. A package of four lessons is $325. Additional travel expenses may apply.

Blue Max Dog also offers a variety of group classes, including:

  • Puppy Kindergarten – for puppies up to four months old
  • Good Manners – obedience for dogs over six months old
  • Advanced Obedience and CGC preparation for dogs over six months old
  • Off-leash Obedience and Fun Agility
  • Treats for tricks – fun games and tricks

The classes are held in Canton, Norwood, and Boston, MA. A group package is six classes (each approximately one hour long) and the price is $170. See information about upcoming group classes »

Just like a human learning to play the piano, or learning a foreign language, it will take your dog a great deal of time and effort to become well-behaved. By using gentle techniques and positive reinforcement methods we will work to make this journey an enjoyable experience for you and your dog.

"It has been over 3 years since we first met Carol and each and every time our dogs see her they get so excited.  They love her.  Carol uses love and patience in her training and that is so important to us, to have found someone who cares for our dogs as much as we do.  It is evident that Carol enjoys her work and her clients enjoy her classes.  We would recommend Carol to anyone who has a dog, she is as vital to your pet’s well being as their veterinarian. Carol is an excellent trainer."
