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!

Beth was an amazing dog trainer for our dog Leo! Leo has some fear aggression towards people, dogs, cars, tv, etc. Since Beth came, Leo has improved so much after just two sessions! She is amazing and I’m very grateful I found her to help Leo be the best dog he can be! He barks significantly less, and I feel like he’s only going to get better. I highly recommend contacting her to work with your dog!

Beth is an EXCELLENT dog trainer. I would give her 10 Stars if I could. Within the 1st visit, my dog (and I) improved 100%. Beth is very skillful in 'training the trainer' and she also recommended a new lead. With just 2 appts, I can now walk my 90lb dog without being pulled and feel the joy & freedom of taking walks with my best 4-legged friend. Plus, he's now much calmer when we're getting ready to leave & in the car. I highly recommend Beth!

We recently purchased a new puppy and have experienced several challenges in socializing him in our home and with our other dog. Not bad challenges (at all), just puppy-behavior challenges. I’ve always had very good results working with a dog trainer, and my wife and I both felt this occasion warranted doing that again. I really cannot say enough about Beth and her approach. She asked us about our concerns, desires for him, then She spent a few minutes just observing Bentley and his interactions with us and our other dog, SweetB. She then put together a plan on what we should work on, then she TAUGHT US how to train him. The tips she’s giving us work so well, you’d think we’re using hyperbole - but it’s true: they work with immediate results. Our enjoyment of Bentley has increased immensely. His interactions with SweetB have improved dramatically. Her methods are loving and firm (NOT harsh). She is articulate and compassionate. She tailors the training to our needs and wishes (we want to eventually get Bentley into a children’s hospital Therapy Dog program) The best thing about Beth? She trains the owner, not the dog. And, that approach is incredible. Bentley’s confidence has sky rocketed, and our interactions with him have become so much better and so much enjoyable. We’ve begun learning that It’s really true: so much of a dog’s behavior stems from the quality of interaction with their owner - and Beth knows how to eke out that quality of interaction. Thank you, Beth!

Beth has been great with my little rescue dog, Louie. I appreciate her honesty and direct nature when identifying the challenges in training Louie, both with the dog and with me as his owner/trainer. She addresses these challenges head on and gives the right information and tools to keep training Louie on my own so I can succeed without her, eventually. I look forward to training sessions with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, down to earth, direct dog trainer.

Beth was great! Within less than a week of reaching out she was at my house training! So reasonably priced, did an amazing job, got right to what WE personally needed for our dog, and didn't try to push any extra training on us that we didn't need which I really appreciated! After trying 4 different trainers, If I need anything in the future I will be reaching out to Beth 100%!
