At Beyond the Leash our mission is to offer fast, effective professional dog training that is a positive experience, reliable in real world situations, and lasts for the life of the dog. One of the most popular dog trainers in New England, Scott Williams and his team work with dog behavior problems at all levels in dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes. However, we are sought out for our success with difficult dogs or those described as failing previous dog training attempts. We are known as the final stop for disobedient dogs and discouraged owners.
We come to your home for an hour session to evaluate your dog’s issues and determine if we can help. We personally work with the dog and provide you with training tips to implement moving forward.
Our most popular service is our board and train program. At our dog boot camp, your dog receives intensive training from professionals with every interaction. Once we send the dog home, we provide follow-up classes so you can maintain our training.
Looking to better understand your dog and change their quirky behavior? The Quirky Dog Podcast is just for you! Hosted by Scott and Jess, each weekly episode provides helpful tips and tricks to get your dog on the right track.
“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful training that my Belgian Tervuren is receiving. They are a sensitive and high energy breed. Trainers do not understand them and are either too harsh or not strict enough, but you understand him perfectly. The results you are getting from my dog are fantastic!”
Kelly O – Billerica, MA
“We can’t thank Scott enough for helping us. His love for dogs was evident in his approach and his professionalism was unmistakable as he demonstrated tremendous patience and understanding. I would strongly recommend Scott to train any dog and would welcome any questions from potential customers.”
Terry B – West Newbury, MA
“Scott taught me how and why dogs behave the way that they do; he will help your dog become a model citizen who will be welcome wherever you choose to bring him. He has the experience to help all sorts of dog related issues in a compassionate and knowledgeable manner. I highly recommend him.”

“Scott has done incredible work with my two German Shepherds! I first came to Scott when my mom was having difficulty controlling them. They showed remarkable improvement after just a couple sessions and Scott helped my mom become more comfortable and confident with them. I highly recommend them!”

“Zelda’s been great! Your training has changed her life. She can come in the yard now, play fetch, go to the dog beach, and not be stuck in her crate when we have company; the change in her is amazing!”
Ruben & Scott – East Boston, MA
“Just wanted to give you an update on Penny. She is doing great. Getting along with dogs and people. Saturday night we had 10 people over. She was walking all over, wagging her tail and sniffing people. Then she just let people start petting her. She is a totally different dog. Thanks again!”
Deb M – Byfield, MA
“Emmie’s transformation has been no less than amazing! I cried when I met you about the challenges that I was having with her and how I missed my old dog; and I cried tears of joy today because she’s a different dog for the better. Thanks for everything!”
Linda P – Derry, NH
“Karma is doing great! Took her to the dog park and even though she was playing, she came when I called her. At daycare they didn’t know she had been to training but noticed the difference right away. It’s an amazing change!”
