History of Dog Boss

Dog Boss Dog Training is a family & Veteran owned and operated business. Since 2013, Dog Boss has been providing dog training to the Middlesex County in Massachusetts and beyond.

After leaving the United States Marine Corps, Daniel went to seek out work with dogs and found a job as a sled dog handler, pursuing childhood dream to work with dogs. After spending a season managing and training a racing sled dog kennel, he knew he truly was meant to work with dogs. 


Dan went on to work at different dog kennels managing and apprenticing with the top dog trainers on the east coast. After taking the knowledge he learned from his mentors, he decided it was time to start his own company to teach others what he has learned about dogs and how to communicate with them.

Tyson is one of the main reasons that Dog Boss dog training exists today. After working with the sled dogs, Dan adopted his first pit bull, Tyson. Once Dan realized Tyson's potential and eagerness to learn the two set  off on a journey to learn as much as they could. Tyson has since been trained in personal protection, the German dog sport of shutzhund and has worked as a security canine as well as a service dog.
