    Breaking Bad Habits

    Often, my job consists of providing training on breaking a dog’s bad habits. Usually, these habits or behaviors start from a young age when the dog or puppy is purchased or adopted. The behavior continues because the dog gets something out of the behavior—attention, food, fun, or an outlet for excess energy. For a while, the family either tolerates the behaviors or even unwittingly rewards the behaviors. By the time the family has finally had enough, the bad behavior has become a bad habit.   Bad Habits  If a dog does something once, it may be a coincidence; if a dog does the same thing twice, he is starting to form a habit.  Each time the behavior is repeated, the habit becomes more entrenched. Habits are difficult to break–for both humans and canines. It takes humans a full 30 days to break…

    Private Lessons

    Private lessons are individualized training sessions geared to your specific needs and problems. The primary advantage of this is that it allows you to learn at a rate geared to you and your dog and to focus on your specific needs and/or problems. While the total price of private training is slightly higher than group lessons, the beneficial reward that comes from private training can assist you and your dog to become more attuned to your dog’s state of mind. Most of my clients take approximately 4-5 lessons to achieve what they wanted to with their dog. Please note, all lessons must be taken within 4 mos of the start…

    Campus Training

    Whether you are planning a vacation or you simply don’t have the time to train your dog, Beth’s Campus Training Program is what your dog needs. Your dog will be trained daily, several times a day for about 15 minutes each session so she can enhance your dog’s attention span without stressing him. Each dog is trained in Beth’s home, not a kennel, giving her the ability to replicate the home environment he already lives. During the time your dog is with Beth for training, he becomes ‘her’ dog and is with her day and night. Because your dog is in Beth’s home with her dogs, she limits this program…
