Dr. Brian Bourquin, or "Dr. B" to his friends and clients, has been a veterinarian to dogs and cats in Greater Boston for over 17 years.  In January 2013, responding to a significant decline in the quality of veterinary medicine and the need to provide service to a highly time-constrained population, he started Dr. B Concierge Veterinary Clinic, an in-home veterinary care service for dogs and cats in Greater Boston.  In July 2014, Dr. B opened a new, state of the art veterinary clinic in Boston's Bay Village neighborhood.  The new practice, called Boston Veterinary Clinic, offers dogs and cats a full suite of traditional veterinary services, from wellness and sick care to dental surgery, advanced diagnostics and alternative therapies.  In 2018, Boston Veterinary Clinic expanded with a new clinic in Coolidge Corner of Brookline, MA.  Boston Veterinary Clinic cares for Boston's pets with one goal in mind - to help you and your companion develop a powerful and enduring bond over a long and healthy life.  They do this with a team of experts who were chosen for their compassion and love for what they do.  They believe pets are your family, and they want to be "your other family doctor"!

Kaitlyn Miklinevich has always had a love for dogs, and her inspiration to begin training dogs came from the two she has now.  As loving and affectionate as they were, Luna and Potter had some mystifying behavior issues when they first came home that stumped Kaitlyn with her limited knowledge of dog training.  They both suffered from severe anxiety, they had horrendous leash manners, they were reactive and their words were so small due to their inability to behave.  After years of research, tons of money spent on products and trainers, and guilt that her dogs were relegated to a life on a leash and cooped up in the house, Kaitlyn was finally able to realize that she was not a good leader or communicator.  She overhauled her tactics and now the lines of communication between she and her dogs are now clear and open.  Since she can communicate so clearly with her dogs, their worlds are boundless.  Realizing how many dog owners struggle to communicate with their dogs, Kaitlyn set out to help as many dogs as possible to have long, fulfilling lives with their families.  Now, she trains dogs (and their owners) to overcome problem behaviors, have proper manners, be reliable off-leash and overcome the struggles that come with loving and living with their humans.  Check out her business!
