Megan G.

Dog Training

Beth was amazing to work with! She is funny and truly passionate about her work. I knew we were leaving our puppy Obie in great hands for the crate and board program. As a puppy, he now has a great foundation and we can already see a difference in his behavior and ability to obey commands. We would recommend Beth to anyone looking for professional dog training!

Thank you so much, Megan! Obie is a great puppy and I was honored to work with him!

Dog Training

It was a pleasure to work with Beth! I did both in-home training and the board and train with her, and she has so much knowledge and expertise. She truly treated my puppy like she was her own, and my dog loved being around her. I noticed a drastic difference in my puppy's behavior after working with Beth and I really appreciate her help. Beth is still very responsive after the training and gives tips/advice whenever I need it. I highly recommend training your dog with Beth!

Beth was great! She provided us with with many training exercises to continue what she started with our dog. She provided insight as to why he was acting the way he was. I’m so glad that we used her services, my entire family now knows what we need to do to make our dog the best dog.

Dog Training

I was very worried that we would not be able to keep our newly-adopted dog, due to behavioral issues. Within 20 minutes of Beth Licht arriving, I knew it was going to be okay! She tackled our top four problems in her first visit, and has provided additional support by email and text, during the time between visits. The money we have spent has been among the best investments we have ever made. On each weekly visit, she has given us new skills, to be able to shape our dog's behavior. She has been truly outstanding! I consider Beth to be a magical dog-whisperer. I am confident that she is creating a road map that will result in our having an obedient dog, who is a cooperative member of the family.

Thank you, Amy! I'm so proud and happy you're so happy with the work we're doing with DJ. He's an amazing dog and you're the kind of dedicated pet parent that makes my job so much easier!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing reflects decades of experience and the end result of my training; an extremely well-trained dog. Spending money on training and ending up with a dog that isn't properly trained is a huge waste of your time and money.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I start with a free, in-depth phone consultation then an initial meeting with the dog. During the phone consultation I learn about your dog, discuss your training goals, and answer questions.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been training for more than 44 years and pride myself on keeping abreast of the latest methods and trends. I may not use every method but I ensure that I'm aware of them so I can offer the most effective training for your dog.
