Linda offers group and private lessons for both puppies and adult dogs. She is also available for in-home private training.
Linda trained her first dog, Misty, in 1982, achieving CD and CDX titles in competitive obedience. Her training bug was renewed in 2010 after she adopted an extremely shy rescue German shepherd/border collie mix, Cally. Cally's needs led Linda to explore clicker training, and then to enroll in Karen Pryor Academy (KPA), where she completed the Dog Trainer Program and became a KPA Certified Training Partner (CTP).
As the owner of DogsChoice Dog Training, Linda offers private in-home training, consultations, and problem-solving. Group classes are taught at Aintree Kennel in Boxford, MA.
Linda is certified through Petco's Dog Training Instructor Program, is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer through the American Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), and is a Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Certified Training Partner (CTP) and has her Certified Pet Dog Trainer. She volunteers at the MSPCA in Methuen, walking and training dogs that are preparing for adoption.
