Beyond the Dog is offering their Brushy Creek TX dog obedience training. We have the best professional dog trainers in the business. They are providing their knowledge and expertise to people in the Austin area who want to communicate better with their dog. We have designed six different dog training courses to fit your particular needs. If it is for dog obedience training or addressing problem behaviors, we have you covered.
We stay involved with the current and ongoing research in our field. Our positive reinforcement training methods are research-based. Your dog’s well being is our top priority, and helping you to better communicate with your dog is our goal.
Meet Your Dog Obedience Trainers
Our company’s greatest asset is the credentials behind our dog trainers. Each trainer has earned a bachelor’s degree in either animal science or animal behavior. Plus, most have gone on to become Certified Professional Dog Trainers (CPDT-KA) through the CCPDT. Pets, pet care, and pet training are a lifestyle to everyone here. So, they have gone above and beyond in their dog training education so that they can provide you with the best Brushy Creek TX dog obedience training.
For example, Alexis Mitchell not only trains dogs but trains and rides horses in her free time. She earned her bachelor’s from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Conservation Biology and received her Certification as a Professional Dog Trainer. Additionally, Alexis is an American Kennel Club Handler, and, with her two dogs, she has competed and titled in Rally Obedience and Conformation. Alexis has experience working in private and group settings, but working with dog owners and families is her favorite.
Beyond the Dog’s CFO and one of our founders, Sean Savage, has his degree and CPDT-KA as well. However, he takes the most pride as a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant. He is one of three in the Greater Houston area and the only one in Kansas and western Missouri. Sean brings over 20 years of experience to the table. He divides his time as a personal trainer among our different locations in Austin, Houston, and Missouri City.
Our CEO and other co-founder, Dr. Kristyn Echterling-Savage, earned her degree in Behavioral Analysis from the University of Kansas. She is a doctoral-level Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA-D). In addition to that, she is a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (CAAB), one of less than fifty in the nation. Together with Sean, she lives with her German Pointer, mixed-breed dog, two cats, and sulcata tortoise.
Our Dog Obedience Training Programs
While we have made it obvious that dog obedience training is our specialty, we are experienced with much more. We train all kinds of pets at Beyond the Dog: cats, ferrets, rabbits, parrots, and pot-bellied pigs. Any of these feline, furry, or feathered friends can enroll in their own versions of three of our training programs. Our private in-home training, video chat consultations, and executive program can all help your other pets too.
Private In-Home Training
We recommend our private lessons for new puppies and dogs that need a housebreaking routine. We also deal with minor problem behaviors like play biting, chewing, separation anxiety, and storm phobia. Your personal trainer will also tackle a couple of obedience behaviors.
Our professional dog trainer will come to the comfort of your home. Therefore, this training is ideal for those that live in the Austin area or either of our sister locations. This program is excellent as your Brushy Creek TX dog obedience training.
Video Chat Consultations
We want to help everyone we can with our dog obedience training expertise. For those that live outside our service area, we recommend our video chat training program. Through one-on-one conversations with our professionals, you can receive advice, tips, tricks, or a starting off point with whatever you need help with.
Our executive program is more exhaustive than our private lessons or video chat consultations. In these, your dog will train with us for three days a week. Although two of those days will be spent independently with our trainer. On the last day, you will join and learn what they have worked on and how to implement it at home. In the executive training program, we can cover more obedience behaviors and minor behavioral issues, such as low-level reactivity.
Board and Train
The last of our programs are more advanced. In these, we can conquer more severe problem behaviors, including aggression. An aggressive animal should be treated as an emergency. Not only is your dog suffering, but others around you are being put at risk as well. But we also teach high-level obedience behaviors in these programs too. We get as far as teaching off-leash obedience, around heavy distractions, and fading out rewards.
In our board and train program, your dog has an extended stay in the home of one of our personal trainers. Here, they receive the individualized and consistent attention they need to learn advanced training. They typically stay with us for three weeks, but an aggressive dog should continue for a fourth.
In this program, your dog works with our trainer for five days a week. They spend four of the days alone, and on the last, you join again. With all this time training, we can accomplish whatever your Brushy Creek TX dog obedience training goals are.
Beyond the Dog is heavily involved with the ongoing research in the field. Our 20 years of experience has given us the background to develop breed-specific programs. We can treat problem behaviors before they ever show up. We have programs for:
- German Shepherds
- Australian Shepherds
- Boxers and Dobermans
- Yorkies, Chihuahuas, and Toy Poodles
- Pit Bulls
- Labrador and Golden Retrievers
- English and French Bulldogs
However, we know that every dog is unique. And so, every dog gets our general training, and we design a program for the individual as well.
