I've spent years learning from some of the best trainers in Boston and beyond. I've worked with hundreds of dogs, dozens of breeds, and all varieties of temperaments. 

The Reliable Dog Training System is a synthesis of the best of this knowledge and experience. It's what I've learned is essential--not only for dog owners' peace of mind, but also for well-being, confidence, and stability across a dog's whole life.



Ian's experience includes the following:

  • Trained, competed, and titled dogs in AKC Rally Obedience, AKC Canine Good Citizen, PSA protection dog sport
  • Owner and lead trainer, The Reliable Dog, MA and NC
