Introduction: I work on a 'train the trainer' mentality, so that I give you the tools to continue to work with your dog in the future. I also believe in getting your dog right into the situations where you are having trouble. For example if your dog is aggressive toward dogs, we will meet in a place where we encounter lots of dogs. I do not feel that avoiding a situation will provide any benefit to you. I work with all breeds, all ages and all problems, but I also *specialize* in dogs with fear, anxiety and fear aggression. I work with many clients who have tried other trainers but have not had success. I love dogs and I love helping to build the human animal bond. Having a dog should be a wonderful experience, not a stressful one!

Wow! What a marvelous experience having Beth help me with training for my new puppy “Sonnet”. I think any dog & owner can benefit from her professional yet personable guidance. My “Sonnet” needs more self control, and with using the techniques and advice Beth demonstrated she is 100% better! Even after just a couple of sessions, by practicing her techniques that she modeled in person; wow such excellent results! It is obvious that Sonnet also feels more secure and loved as well! It is definitely very gratifying to have such positive progress in obedience and respect. Now I am more consistent and confident in the way that I interact with my pup. Minute by minute! (hour by hour, and day by day!) life is 100% better due to this awesome trainer. Really can’t thank you enough Beth! Also, knowing that if I have any concerns in the future, you are right here in San Diego and always respond! (For instance the recommendation for a specific different collar to try for walking nicely on the leash.)

Beth did an incredible job giving me the tools I need to be successful as a new dog owner. She helped me swiftly potty train, crate train and leash train my dog, Bandit! She was super responsive, very punctual and was so helpful via text in between sessions when I encountered new behavioral issues from Bandit. Worth every penny, and I would use Beth again in a heart beat!

Beth was great. She helped me with becoming a better dog leader and we focused on leash training and reinforcing basic commands. My walks are more enjoyable. Thank You!

My 2 year old female havanese needed help with not pulling while on the leash and pottying. Contact and meeting with Top Dog Trainer was something I should have done a long time ago. After our first meeting, I was taught great techniques and was given a plan to train my little girl. My dog learned very quickly using the plan outlined. On the second visit, Top Dog watched my dog to identify other important issues my dog had. We worked on not jumping on people, not running out of the front door when opened, and refined her stay and sit demands. Thank you Top Dog!

Beth was awesome. In just one session she taught our dog, Tank, to heel and walk politely on a leash. He’s a 75 lb rescuIn the year my husband and I have had him, we’ve never enjoyed a walk with Tank where he didn’t pull. What set Beth apart was that she trains you. I wanted to be included and involved in Tank’s training and she does that really well by modeling techniques and asking you to try it. His reactivity is still a work in progress, but I have tools now to help him and work on those things on my own. Beth gives recommendations and ideas for ways to work on issues and I feel well-equipped to help him continue growing!
