Dog Taoist

Helping humans and their pets live in harmony

Servicing St Pepperell and Surrounding Areas

How it Works

Welcome to Dog Taoist, where you and your dog will learn how to live peacefully and communicate effectively. Dog Taoist brings clarity and calm cooperation to humans and their dogs through proprietary formulas based on dog psychology, pack mentality, and leader-follower mechanics. Basically, we help you communicate with your dogs without yelling, fighting, or forcing…anything.

Schedule an Assessment

Click the link below or email us at info@dogtaoist.com to get started! Tell us everything about your dogs. Include your street address, cell, and pics of your dogs. We’ll start your account and schedule an assessment with you (and all your dogs/ humans) at our facility to determine which training package best suits your needs. Then we move forward with our proposed rehabilitation/training trajectory and get you scheduled in each week for a specific number of months.

I reached out to Brad after my dog had become increasingly aggressive creating a safety concern for anybody coming near my home. At our first appointment, Brad spent 4 hours getting to know Lou and assessing his needs. After our first session, we already saw a change in Lou’s behavior. We are a month into our training, and Lou is like a new dog. He is no longer barking at everybody passing outside, he walks beautifully on a leash, and we aren’t afraid of what he might do next. Brad has instilled confidence in Lou and into our family. I cannot thank him and his family enough for everything. If anybody is on the fence, know that he is worth every cent and more. My only regret is that we didn’t find him sooner!

We have a 13 week old Labrador puppy and 3 busy boys. Brad and all his trainers have been amazing to work with. At first meeting, he spent a good amount of time with Shiloh and I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and handling of our puppy and all the dogs in his center. After only one training class with Brad we have noticed a change in our puppy. She is more focused, less distracted, and more easily re-directed. She has almost mastered walking on a leash with his advice and consistency. He has taken time to answer all my questions and provided me with solid support from the moment we set foot in his center. I’m so very excited to see what our puppy is going to achieve with his leadership and guidance. I can say with certainty that I would highly recommend this school for any dog and their owners!

I am honored to write a review of my experience working with the Dog Taoist!! Brad is in a class of his own, well above all other dog trainers who pale in comparison to what he knows about dog psychology and the leader/follower mentality. He can restore order to your life and strengthen your relationship with your dog, identifying fears the dog has and how to eliminate them. He comes to your home with his pack of 5 working dogs who are his beloved pets. He will work with you on the correct use of collars, holding the leash, walking, respect, barriers, commands, etc. You must be invested and practice everything he teaches you as this is a long-term investment in your life with your dog. My dog was abused and came to us with many issues. But we learned we have issues too because, in our commitment to give Tessa a better life, we were inadvertently humanizing her and therefore adding to her problems. It was hard to hear but we all our trust and confidence in Brad and we have seen marked improvement. We cannot thank him enough!
