We have so many amazing things to say about Beth and her training approach with our puppy, oso. Our dog is a very hyper 11 month old with loads of energy. Before we met with Beth, Oso had some behavioral issues (pulling on the leash, barking at other dogs on the leash, jumping etc). He also started to become territorial over his bones which is what ultimately led us to finding a trainer for him. In the first session with Beth, we saw immediate improvements and we couldn't be more grateful. Beth works dilligently to identify what challenges your dog is having and provides you with all the resources you need to understand them and fix them. In just our first two training sessions, we are so delighted to say that our dog walks right by our side on walks and no longer pulls on the leash or reacts to other dogs on walks. Most importantly, he has made MAJOR improvements with his bone aggression and territorial behavior. Our training is still a work in progress, but we feel that we have the resources we need to work with him on a daily basis and continue to improve! 11/10 would recommend Beth. We were at a loss of what to do and felt like we had tried everything. Beth changed everything for us in just two sessions!Jan 8, 2021Verified

Beth was AMAZING! I had issues with leash pulling, barking and some aggressive behavior. She was very responsive and punctual to all meetings. I met with her twice already and have seen a world of a difference in my dog, Marshmallow. I feel more confident in a dog trainer and in myself. Thank you so much Beth for your time, we both really appreciate it!!!Sep 24, 2020Verified

My dog, Mila, suffers from fear aggression and we struggle a lot with it when it comes to walking by dogs and when new people come to the door or in the house. We’ve had 2 out of 4 training sessions with Beth so far and I’m amazed with the improvement so far. Already, we’ve been able to get a much better handle of her on walks so she’s not constantly pulling and going after anything that moves and she now is able to walk past most dogs without reacting. There’s still some work we need to do with how she reacts to more vocal dogs and to new house visitors but I’m very confident that Beth will give us the tools we need to get a good handle on those issues.Jul 6, 2020Verified

I had a great experience. My dogs responded well with the instructions she gave me for training them. I didn’t feel overwhelmed with to much information at once. Plus everything she had me do with them was within my ability despite having a busy schedule.Jun 30, 2020Verified

Beth is phenomenal!! She gave me an immediate response and spoke to me on the phone about my needs with regards to my one-year old male dogs. She assessed in rapid fire precision the needs of my two huskies within seconds of her arrival. She took control and had both dogs behaving in a manner I had not seen previously. She has provided me insight and valuable life tools to continue to train and work with in the overall and ongoing developmental behavior that was/is much needed with my smart, stubborn, energetic two male huskies. She is worth her weight in gold and I would highly recommend Beth (and already have to several friends). My huskies and I are happier thanks to Beth!Jun 23, 2020Verified
