Beyond the Dog
At Beyond the Dog, we strive to provide owners with the highest held standard in professional training. We hold our trainers to even greater standards because of the approach our organization uses. Our company is lead by Dr. Kristyn Echterling-Savage our Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (CAAB) and Sean Savage our Certified Dog Behavior Consultant. In addition to their certifications, both Kristyn and Sean have advanced degrees in behavioral science.
Their high level of education and training makes our trainers some of the most skilled in the dog training industry. We use a positive reward-based system to train pets. This process is best because it establishes a stronger bond between the owner and the pet. It is also the most trusted way of pet training to-date. All of our trainers are kept up-to-date with training methods based on the most current scientific research. Of course, a training program is only as effective as it’s teacher, and our trainers are the best. Each trainer will work with an owner to ensure they fully understand the proper training methods for their pet.
Once you have the training down, you are free to train their dog, cat, or other pet at your own will outside of training sessions. In fact, you are expected to train your pets outside of training sessions. Some programs place most of the training on the trainer while others put more on you, the owner. Regardless, each program expects the owner to work closely with the trainer to ensure the training sticks. Consistency and repetition is important when training pets.
