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!

Dog Training

Beth helped me introduce a puppy into our pack. My 3 year old was fearful of the puppy. At the first session she provided me with the tools to turn a fearful dog into a confident one. She also gave me the training needed to train the puppy. Both dogs are doing amazing and I’m so grateful to Beth. I would highly recommend her and if needed would use her again without hesitation.

Beth was wonderful. She is making it very easy for my dog to learn to not react to other dogs. She trained both of us very well so that I can use and reinforce her suggestions. She is a very practical and caring dog trainer. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a compassionate trainer.

We were extremely impressed with Beth. You could tell that she has an incredible love for animals and a huge desire to teach owners how to be a fur parents. We saw huge improvement with our dog after one session. Beth is extremely knowledgeable and knows her craft! I recommend her to anyone who wants their dog trained.

My dog's name is Uno and he is an anxious dog. He would show leash aggression and bite dogs when in closed spaces. He also hated visitors. With Beth's help, Uno is more confident and tolerates other dogs and humans now. We are still continuing building Uno's confidence but he has come a long way! He no longer lashes out while walking on the leash or if he does, he is easily redirected. He also lets visitors pet him now! I 100% recommend Beth for training your dog!

Beth is fantastic. She was quickly able to see my dogs' problem behaviors and address them in a way that I could implement change right away. She provided great explanation and instruction on how to correct my dogs' problem behaviors. After one session, I was walking my two large dogs with ease. During our second training session, Beth helped me fine tune a few things and we worked on addressing the next problem behavior. I left knowing exactly what I needed to do to improve one of my dog's semi-aggressive response to other dogs. I highly recommend Beth! She is easy to communicate with and is very flexible with scheduling sessions.
