Cynthia is a very dedicated and caring trainer. She is always expanding her knowledge to better help her clients and their dogs. As a trainer myself, I wouldn’t hesitate to refer potential clients to Cynthia for help! More...

My doggie had a bit of a 'ruff' life before me, unfortunately I don't know much about what happened before. After the transition home from college and her first heat cycle, she wasn't acting right - trying to defend or attack new people, wasn't walking well on a leash, and didn't play well with her previous doggie friends, guarding her toys and food. I interviewed trainers - one even said I just needed to EXERCISE her more!!! I was baffled at this, but Cynthia talked me through options, and after meeting with her I didn't need to meet with anyone else - I booked immediately. Rylee's training took a little longer because of the situation, but Cynthia really did her do-diligence, even through some tough personal events. She was open with me and kept me in the loop. Rylee was a different dog when I got her back, it was incredible. She's still got some training and lots of work to do on my end to earn her trust and build our relationship, but Cynthia continues to help me work towards Rylee and I being where we want. Behavior modification cases may take a bit longer, it's not an overnight fix! But it's absolutely worth every cent. More...

Cynthia really took the time to work with me on my dogs needs and the reasoning behind his actions. I enjoy my dog ( buck) much more now and he seems happier too! I cannot be happier with Cynthia and Better Bond! More...

Cynthia was very patient to say the least. Our male Cane Corso proved to be a challenge, but in the end she helped us have a much better understanding of the dog he was. She did an excellent job with both our pups and we would definitely use her again More...

Cynthia has been great at giving us constant updates on how Lola is doing and how she’s adapting to training. I was impressed at how clean and well kept her facility is and we truly feel comfortable leaving Lola in Cynthia’s care.

My young, high-spirited Sheprador was incontrollable and wanted to kill my chickens. After our training with Cynthia my dog became the family member I wanted. She is still high-spirited but she is controllable and she lays with and protects the flock. Cynthia loves dogs, can train any breed, and correct any problems they may have. She is the best. More...

We had our first training today and it was fantastic! We brought a foster to Cynthia today to begin her first training. Out foster Stella was about to be euthanized in Beaumont and waa pulled and saved by PAWS of Beaumont. Stella is about 2 years and has never had training. Today Stella looked so happy she pranced! She not only loved the attention she really seemed to having direction and know what we wanted. Can't wait for the next training session! Highly recommend Cynthia and can't wait to see what all she teaches Stella! More...

Scout did a stay and train for a few weeks with Cynthia. He was so wild and nipped at hands and jumped on my kids. Any improvement would have been great - but what Cynthia did with him was incredible!! He does well on and off a leash, can stay very well, less aggressive behavior, and no jumping!! I'm so happy with his results and their hard work together!! More...

Excellent is the one word that describes Cynthia's ability to train. She loves your dogs, and is task focused on accomplishing the impossible. she has slept on a hard floor next to a crated dog to build his trust, I don't know how she did it but she did. My German Shepherd is a pleasure after he went through training with Cynthia. Do it for you and your dog a well behaved dog is joy. More...

I have had the pleasure of knowing Cynthia for more than 4 years now. We met when I foster-failed a little pittie mix through a rescue she was working with. I fell in love with him but he was A LOT of work. To be honest, he was a hot mess. Cynthia has worked with us to help us moderate Beaux's craziness. She introduced him to the e-collar and its has made all the difference for him. I love getting Beaux off-leash and letting him be a dog with the confidence that he will listen to me. Because of Cynthia's dogmanship, we have been able to add two additional rescues to our pack. We are still a work in progress but I am proud to say that, to this point, I have never had to consider rehoming one of our dogs. Wether you need basic obedience training or have behavior that needs modification, I would highly recommend Cynthia. More...

After a sudden move to Texas for my husband's job we noticed our 3yr old German Shepherd mix became very anxious and aggressive. He would lunge for other dogs (and sometimes people) on walks, barked at everything and even nipped at the cable guy. These new behaviors seemed to be getting worse by the second and we were starting to feel trapped. We did some research and found Cynthia through a referral. What a blessing! In just a few short weeks Cynthia transformed our nervous-nellie into a well behaved and much less stressed dog. She also took the time to train us as well which was a key factor to Bullit's success. We couldn't be happier with the results and would recommend Cynthia and A Better Bond Dog Training to anyone! More...

I have know Cybthia for about 5 years now. She helped me with training my dog when he was around 1yr. She does great work. I have had the pleasure of meeting Gia her cane corso I'm so incredibly impressed with how well behaved and well trained Gia is. That speaks volumes on what a great trainer Cybthia is. She brough Gia once to a public garage sale we had at the activity building they had 100's of people there and kids as well Gia was beyond well behaved she walked perfectly on a leash without Cybthia even holding leash inspite of all the screaming kids Gia remained calm and never strayed from Cybthias side. If your looking for a knowledgeable trainer she's your girl! I always call her for advice and wouldn't bring my dogs to anyone else More...

We rescued our dog as a puppy, and he is very energetic. He loved to jump, whine, bark, pull on the leash, and was just "rude" altogether. We weren't sure how to handle his behaviors. We were referred to Cynthia. After Cynthia worked with our dog and taught him "manners", he is very much improved. He is still a puppy and has quite a bit of learning to do, but he can now walk on the leash without pulling, doesn't jump all the time, stays for an extended length of time, doesn't always whine in his pin, comes when called, walks off leash and stays nearby, etc.. Cynthia had patience with my many questions and need for details. She even took my Frenchie and observed how they interacted for a day to try to help their relationship and interactions. Now we just need to work with my rude Frenchie! Thank you, Cynthia! We look forward to seeing you again for our first follow up session. More...

I’m so thankful to know Cynthia! She is an experienced dog trainer and behaviorist with the passion and patience to help dogs and their humans be their best selves. At the heart of her work is building relationships and trust with dogs, which not only fosters their learning for obedience skills, but also allows for successful rehabilitation of dogs in need and ultimately happier, more fulfilled dogs. I highly recommend A Better Bond Dog Training whether you are looking simply for improved obedience, or are having some mild to more severe behavior concerns! More...

We were referred to Cynthia when our rescue group rescued a dog with reactive issues. She would lunge for other dogs and unfortunately, small children, when she was out on a leash. We boarded her with Cynthia and within a few short months, the dog came back to us like another dog! She was calm, she was well-mannered, we were incredulous. And to this day, Faith has not forgotten anything Cynthia has taught her. She is the perfect dog. We highly recommend Cynthia and A Better Bond Dog Training for all your training needs. As a matter of fact, we brought another of our rescue dogs to her, this one with aggression issues, that she is working with. We know she will do wonders with him as well. More...

Cynthia is an amazing trainer and pet behaviorist.. when looking for a skilled professional in this field she is tops. Brought Orbit to ABBDT And so happy that we did. Cynthia and her staff are the full package ; skilled professional, and friendly.. after Orbit returned home with very clear, concise instructions that were very easy to understand ,he was more at ease in our home and adapted to his training in an amazing way. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who is looking for help with their dog .. God bless Cynthia and her crew for making a huge difference in our family life with Orbit. More...

Cynthia truly understands dog behavior. It is a very interesting to watch Cynthia communicate with a dog. There is this finesse, almost like dressage, where her instructions are understood and the dog performs as wanted. Her experience is varied and her love for the science is obvious. She is a leader,kind and fun, and the dogs sense it and respect it. We are very happy to have met such an amazing trainer and behaviorist! More...

Cynthia and a Better Bond have really changed my relationship with dogs. She has taught me how to advocate for my dogs and earn their trust. I have been training dogs for over 15 years and she has opened my eyes to a side of dog training I was missing. I highly recommend her as a trainer! You will learn how to enjoy your dogs, more than you could have ever imaged, and enjoy wonderful freedom and obedience as well. More...

I have had the opportunity to work with Cynthia at BBDT on behalf of dogs in my rescue program requiring behavior support and intervention. She has vast knowledge on the nature and needs of dogs with behavior challenges and offers practical and and meaningful solutions to effectively intervene. Cynthia has an unparalleled ability to connect with a dog in a manner that helps him feel safe and confident. One only needs to see how calm and attentive a dog is in her presence to understand the quality of her care and training as dogs are often the best judge of character. Cynthia goes the distance to help dogs and their owners or rescues in need. I recommend Better Bond Dog Training and Behavior without hesitation. More...

I've had the pleasure of seeing Cynthia work with many types of dogs and turn their lives, and the lives of their owners around for the better. She has several years of training and behavior experience and can truly handle anything. Several months ago, I trapped a feral dog that was absolutely terrified of people and nowhere near adoptable. After a few months of being in Cynthia's great care, the dog has made huge improvements in her behavior and trust for people and is now able to be adopted. I have seen the same results with many other dogs that she has rehabilitated. Cynthia, along with her extraordinarily trained canine partner, Gia (who is a huge part of the training process), truly understand the human-canine bond, and they are very passionate about teaching that to every person and dog that comes their way. If you need anything from basic obedience training to severe behavior rehabilitation, Cynthia is the person you need to see! More...

Cynthia approaches every dog with a unique set of skills learned from a variety of training experiences and also skilled mentors. She is dedicated to your dogs success within your family. Cynthia is able to effectively communicate specific techniques to the pet owner on better ways to relate to your dog. She "speaks" canine, knows canine behavior and how to reach a dog- many can learn from her as she sets your dog up for success. I highly recommend A Better Bond Dog Training and Behavior. More...

Cynthia came very highly recommended from a friend. I have to admit I was apprehensive about leaving my new puppy any place for month. They were very good about sending updates while Echo was away. You can truly see that they love what they do and it shows. We picked up our baby yesterday and I have to say I am really impressed. Echo has come a long way. I highly recommend ABBDT. You will not be disappointed!! More...

Q&A

I LOVE helping people have dog who they can enjoy life with, families have a dog who is a joy and helping a confused or trouble dog thrive through fulfillment.

18 years ago I trained my first client dog, such a simple issue in hindsight but seeing the joy in both the dog and his owner was amazing. Many years and much experience later I still believe in the importance of improving the lives of people and their dogs. Our dogs are so importance to us and can be a huge benefit in our lives. I strive to make this goal attainable, stress free and straight forward for both you and your dog.

I offer 18 years of Professional Dog Training experience ranging from severe behavioral issues to puppy training, puppy raising and fully trained dogs to order. With this experience comes the skill and patience to help each dog effectively without unnecessary stress, clear communication, effective approaches and an eye to address issues before they happen. Our small family business takes an equally small amount of client dogs per period. This means your dog will receive more attention, more training and more care than might be found elsewhere.
