Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
My family got our first dog without any preparation and the first two weeks proved that we needed a lot of help. Beth was able to solve all of our problems specifically geared to our dog and was able to answer all the questions we had. It was obvious from the first lesson that she was very knowledgeable; her 'teaching the trainer' mentality not only helped Cooper settle into the house based on our standards faster, but also taught my family and I important skills towards making sure he is a properly trained dog. Our household is much less hectic and much happier with Beth's help!Jan 10, 2020Verified
Beth established rules and boundaries with our dog the minute she stepped in the door. She was able to give us many useful tips plus homework to do until our next visit. My husband and I are looking forward to our next session. We like the fact that she does not just train our dog at our house but will venture out to dog parks, playgrounds and Fiesta Island to address the behavior problems we are having at those locations.Oct 30, 2019Verified
Sunny is a one year old shelter dog with soo much energy! She and we have learned a lot in two lessons with Beth. Still much to be done. She’s sweet and smart and the training will help us have a great life together.Nov 2, 2019Verified
Beth has had two sessions with us and the result is nothing short of a miracle. Our Maddie is a 10 year old rescue Malti-poo who was quite ill mannered from lack of consistent training. She would bark at every noise, lunge, and “go off” ferociously at nearly every dog she’d see, even 100 feet away. It made walking her every day a nightmare. Now that we know how to handle her from our work with Beth, to make her feel safe, she is a pleasure to walk and be around. I love this dog without reservation now! We are so grateful to have found this amazing, talented and patient trainer. Sally SeylerDec 26, 2019Verified
We have never used a professional dog trainer, but I highly recommend using Beth. She was informative, professional and full of knowledge. She helped our 6 month puppy break out of her shyness and she gave us valuable information during each lesson. She trained us as well as our puppy! Thank you Beth!Aug 26, 2019Verified
