Review of Mind of Dog by Troy Kennedy
5 Troy Kennedy

Danielle responds promptly and is willing to take the time and walk you through the plan and schedule. They are flexible for dropoff or pickups if my schedule gets funky. Kyle was super helping me to have realistic expectations with my rescue and to better understand the dynamics of the mind of the dog. He trained me as much (maybe more)! They even were able to help me out once when I called the day before a weekend to take care of my paw pals.

Mind of Dog exceeds my expectations regularly. Danielle is very responsive to email and text communication - my questions or requests for changes are handled promptly. Kyle spent a lot of time with my dogs helping them get acclimated to socialized walks. David is kind and consistent with my dogs and very observant of their behavior and stress levels in various situations. I've noticed great changes in my dogs' leash walking since they've been walking with Mind of Dog; most notably, they do not pull or bark when they see other dogs on our walks. When I arrive home from work I'm greeted by happy, tired dogs. My vet even recently commented that their weight is ideal and they are well exercised. Mind of Dog provides an invaluable service to my pups and me. I highly recommend them!

To say that Kyle, Danielle and David are excellent at what they do would be an understatement. I by accident came upon their recommendation from Thumbtack in June 2015 as I was searching for a local trainer for my not properly socialized, aggressive GDS/Lab mix baby boy. I had another trainer that he and his sister were going to but for whatever reason the trainer did not have the time to train Nico so feeling disheartened and upset I started searching for Nico's trainer especially since Nico bonded so well with the former trainer. Danielle was the first one to contact me via email and was very informative and personable.
Kyle came and meet Nico and discussed the best course of action for Nico as we all agreed he needed to just be a dog and enjoy his "doghood'. I can go on and on about this wonder team but what made me decide to make them family members was: Nico got very sick into his third day of training-Kyle called me right away and we thought he was dehydrated and depressed because he was away from home. Of course this all happened when my family was on Holiday and I was alone at work and could not leave my office-i was a wreck not knowing what was wrong with my baby boy. Kyle and Danielle took it upon themselves with my permission to take him to their local vet who suggested that Nico go to the emergency hospital. I told Kyle that i will be there as soon as I can to take Nico but it would not be until 5:00pm. Kyle and Danielle took Nico to the hospital as they did not want to wait and stayed with him until I could leave. When I went to the hospital and after getting his best guess prognosis the doctor turned to me and said "if you can update the trainers as they were very worried". Nico was in the hospital for 9 days and every single day Danielle and Kyle contacted me to find out about Nico. Danielle suggested healthy alternatives for Nico-bottom line my aggressive, non socialized pup looks forward to seeing David every time he goes for sleepovers and play dates. I would recommend them as they proved to me that they care for my pups as they were their own. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to let you know how I feel.

So happy with their services! We have two very active and energetic puppies that need a lot of mental stimulation and physical exercise. Every day they go on a new hike or walk and always come home happy and tired. For the cost of a dog walking service we get so much more than that. And Danielle and Kyle are a pleasure to work with and just great, positive people. My family couldn't be more satisfied and we feel lucky to have them for our dogs.

We brought our timid rottie, Tank, to Mind of Dog back in June 2016. I've been intentionally waiting to write this review to let the "honey moon" phase wear off and see if I felt the same way over a year later. I can say without a doubt, we continue to be just as grateful for Danielle, Kyle, and Dave as we were on the day one.

We went for the free walk in Randolph on a Saturday morning to learn about their philosophy and mindset towards treating dogs, taking care of them, etc. The moment they took Tank's leash without any hesitation and walked him to the front of the pack (mind you he's NOT social towards strangers and other dogs), I knew we found our tribe.

We've grown as dog owners and trainers, and Tank continues to grow more comfortable in his own skin. Not to mention that we were able to show them we are committed to our dogs growth and development and they were willing to watch Tank when we go away. Not only is their service worth far more than they charge, but the peace of mind we have that Tank is in good hands when we go away is simply invaluable.

Danielle's communication and thorough responses whenever I reach out is incredible. We've worked with other trainers and facilities in the past and NO ONE has come close to her responsiveness. You can tell how much she cares for the dogs and is fully aware typical concerns and worries every owner has.

On a less vital note, I've grown slightly addicted to their daily photos of dogs, and I find myself refreshing their FB and Instagram at the end of each day to see our Tank hanging with his crew. So I encourage anyone and everyone to seriously consider Mind of Dog to help with your dog and care for them. No matter how small or large the behavioral issue, I believe they can handle it.

Thanks again!
