How is Beyond the Dog Different?

The expertise of our Trainers is what sets us apart from other dog training services. First and foremost, our team receives extensive training prior to working with your animal. Additionally, they work under the supervision of three individuals; a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, and our Senior Certified Professional Dog Trainer. These three individuals are experts in their field. Furthermore, our Certified Dog Behavior Consultant has over 20 years of experience and is the only one of their title throughout St. Louis and Missouri. Our team members work together to perfect training procedures and methods. For this reason, you won’t find another training service in St. Louis that shows the dedication and passion displayed at Beyond The Dog. Our hands-on approach and expert training techniques make us the perfect team to train your dog.

What separates a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist from a Trainer?

Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists (CAABs) are board-certified individuals who have met an extensive list of requirements to become so. Comprehensive experience is just one requirement needed to become a certified behaviorist by the Animal Behavior Society. You must also have contributed to the field of animal behavior, have a doctoral-level education, and received recommendations from colleagues. Currently, the United States is home to just over 50 Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists, and your animal can work with one of them when you get in touch with Beyond The Dog.
