Steve & Mary Berthiaume

We are Steve and Mary: passionate and compassionate skilled dog trainers who help owners to develop and maintain a healthier and more relaxed, enjoyable relationship with their dogs. By working with our own dogs (Kodak and Canon) many years ago, we started learning how to problem solve behavioral concerns to arrive at a place where we could truly enjoy our best friends! We then continued studying dog behavior and training and began working with our friends’ and neighbors’ dogs. We began to see so much success in our dog training efforts that I (Steve) decided to leave my job with Apple (yes, that Apple) to start Lead By Love Dog Care and work with dogs and their owners full time.

Our business is truly a Mom and Pop operation that is completely run by just the two of us. I handle the training/walking/boarding side,and Mary manages our website, keeps our records straight, and assists with occasional walks and feeding. Mostly though, she just plays with the dogs and keeps them happy. I also work with the owners, both before and after their dog’s training,to assess the canine’s needs and help them to find the best solutions to whatever dog behavioral problems they are encountering. We have developed many transformational trainingprograms, and we will help you to select the best one for you and your dog.

To learn more about us, please check out our programs and allow me to meet you and your dog. During our visit, I’ll be glad to take your dog for a free walk and do a brief assessment. Explore our YouTube channel to see some of the dogs that we have trained recently.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you to lead your dog with love so that you can truly enjoy living with your dog again.
