My fiancé and I were desperate to help our rescue dog feel more comfortable, safe and less aggressive on walks. She has a background of neglect and likely had a litter of puppies while she was being neglected. We were referred to Beyond the Dog by our veterinarian Dr. Church at Mill Creek shortly after adopting her. I have nothing but good things to say about Ashton and Ally at Beyond the Dog! They helped our baby with her reactive aggression and obedience within weeks. They not only worked with her directly at our home, but provided step-by-step email instructions every week so we could continue the training when we were alone as a family. Now we can go on walks with our dog and feel at ease that she won’t immediately bark or lunge at other dogs. She listens much better in the house as well. No jumping and she auto-sits when she wants attention. Thank you, Beyond the Dog! More...

I am very happy with my experience at Beyond the Dog. Ana is very professional, knowledgeable, communicative, and is so good with our dog! He loves her! She always thoroughly answered my questions. Our dog is much better behaved now and I’m glad I have the knowledge now to keep working with him. I only wish I had hired Ana a year ago! More...

Beyond the Dog exceeded my expectations! Harvey was enrolled in the “all inclusive” program with Tiffany. Tiffany was very professional, always on time, had excellent communication and was very compassionate. We couldn’t be happier with how Harvey transformed in just 4 weeks. He gets a lot of compliments when out and about about how well behaved he is! Thank you! More...

We can not say enough good things about Beyond the Dog! Our trainer Tiffany was wonderful with our two Staffy furbabies! That’s right ... I said TWO very head strong and very different dogs! Not only was the training excellent but the level of professionalism was A+! Tiffany was on time to every appointment, in sub zero temperatures and snow storms! The communication regarding training ... another A+! Thank you for all your hard work Tiffany! Our babies can’t wait to see you again! More...

Beyond the dog exceeded our expectations! It’s very evidence based and effective. Our ninny of a dog, Yoshi is now only half as much of a Ninny and I know will improve as we move forward with maintenance! Ally Salzer, our trainer, was amazing, very kind and loves our pups as much as we do. She is VERY knowledgeable and skilled and taught us so many things that will help us moving forward. We and our dogs really enjoyed getting to know her and look forward to to working with her again soon!! 5 stars!! More...

We loved our experience with Beyond the Dog. Drew Coyle was prompt, knowledgeable, and professional. Our 5 month old lab puppy, Winni, is a different dog now that she has completed the training! We would recommend this company to anyone looking for a well trained dog. Thanks!! More...

We highly recommend Beyond the Dog and would use them again. Our trainer was Drew Coyle and he was amazing. He was always on time, professional and knowledgeable. We learned so much from him and so did Theo our dog. Theo loved Drew and was always happy to see him. You need to purchase a few things in advance of training and it’s all totally worth it especially the gentle leader he recommended, the long line and the special treats. When we started Theo was over a year old and had developed plenty of bad habits. Theo was also our family’s first dog so we were pretty clueless on how to get him to do what we wanted. Drew trained all of us! Drew taught him to walking next to us on a leash without pulling, which was such an improvement. Theo used to bark and jump on anyone coming to the door and now he knows to sit on the stairs until he is released. He also was trained not to cross certain thresholds, to wait, auto sit, not to chew inappropriate things like shoes, and many more skills. We are comply happy with how the training worked out and would highly recommend Beyond the Dog. More...

We recently worked with Drew to train our new puppy and to help us with bad behaviors our 2 year old dog had acquired. Our puppy, Teddy, came home a new dog! He was well behaved, appropriate and listened when given a command. You can tell Drew really loves animals and Teddy was so happy to see him every time he came to train. Drew also gave us the tools to correct the aggression, barking and lunging we were seeing from our 2 year old dog. And also worked with our family to make sure we would be successful!! Drew was always timely, polite and helpful. I would highly recommend him for any training needs you might need! More...

We highly recommend Beyond The Dog. We live in Lawrence and Ally was our trainer. Our dog, Fred, LOVES her and seeks to impress her with each session. She really took the time to work directly with us and our kids as well so we could all approach the training tactics the same way. Definitely worth the investment! More...

Ana was phenomenal! When we started working with her, our dog, Theodore, was only 15 weeks old. He had issues with touch sensitivity and we also wanted to work with him on basic commands and leash walking. Before we started our training, Theo would bite us whenever we tried to pet him, jumped on everyone he saw, and honestly wouldn't listen to us at all. Once Ana started working with him, I couldn't believe how quickly things changed. He stopped biting us and his jumping behaviors significantly reduced. Even though he is still a puppy, Ana was able to teach him the basic commands and help him learn to listen to us. Theo is now such a snuggler and loves to be pet, which is night and day compared to before training. Not only did we love working with Ana, Theo looked forward to seeing her which was great to see. Ana was the light at the end of the tunnel that we needed. So thankful to Ana and Beyond the Dog and would definitely recommend their services to anyone! More...

Ana was great to work with and was so patient and professional! From the moment she stepped into our house, Fred immediately responded to her which was amazing to watch. Fred was a newly adopted rescue and is 1 1/2 years old and had issues chasing our senior cat, jumping on people, counter surfing, etc. Ana was able to get Fred to greatly reduce all of these behaviors and also gave us the tools to get Fred to respond to us. We loved working with her in our home and would recommend her and Beyond the Dog to anyone and can't say enough on how much our lives are transformed in 1 short month. Thanks!!!! More...

Choosing Beyond the Dog for training was the best decision we could have made for our dog, Sadie. Hannah is absolutely wonderful. I tend to ask a LOT of questions, and she was very helpful in training me as well as Sadie. That Sadie trusted her so quickly was a shock to me. Sadie was very reactive and overly defensive of us. She’s a 55lb German Shepherd mix. She barked constantly on walks if she saw other dogs, and we weren’t comfortable having people over with her. After the 4 week ‘All-Inclusive’ Program, Sadie is very calm. She’s still the same cuddly, smart, and loyal dog, just without the anxiety. Hannah was also able to work around the fact that we work from home. More...

Allyson was an amazing friend and resource to us throughout the program. We were in a desperate and confused place before beginning our training with Beyond the Dog, but thanks to their help we could not feel more at ease and happy with our dog. Their training practices were easy to understand and extremely impactful. We had recently rescued our husky, Aspen, at 3 years old and she was an anxious dog prone to resource guarding. Now, Aspen couldn’t be more comfortable and happy in her new home with us. Thanks to the help of Beyond the Dog our relationship with Aspen has been strengthened, we will be forever grateful!

I can't thank Ana enough, she has been a life saver! The communication with my dog is so much clearer making our relationship that much better. I get so many compliments in public about how well mannered my 16 week old pup is. I am beyond impressed with his transformation in the 4 weeks we were with them. They are WONDERFUL! They explain everything so easy to you as you continue with the training. I am beyond grateful. I am not as worried taking my pup into his adolescents years knowing that I have Beyond the Dog's support behind me. More...

I couldn’t be more appreciative of the training offered for my rescue dog Slugger. With a huge smile that melts your heart he needed training due to lack of socialization as a pup. Immediately I saw positive changes as not only he was trained, but so was I on how to communicate effectively with him. Looking back from beginning to end I am amazed of his achievements!! Ashley our trainer was wonderful and a great match for him. I highly recommend Beyond the Dog to anyone that is looking for dog training. I loved that our training was in the home so we could work on obstacles of everyday life. Don’t let the price scare you, it is worth every penny!! You will be thankful you chose Beyond the Dog!! I know I am!!! More...

Bob Foster is an incredibly caring professional who will take the time and listen. If the "Christian" part of counseling is very important to you, this is what you will get here. You'll hear thought provoking questions that assist you in thinking on scripture and letting God speak to your heart. If there is a relevant personal experience of his own to share, he will...making you feel more validated and less "crazy" or alone in what you're dealing with. Highly recommended. More...

Our entire experience with Beyond the Dog has been AMAZING. From the first time I called to discuss options, to the end of our program, it was top notch. Our golden retriever puppy (8 months) was full of energy and didn't listen to us at all. Our wonderful trainer, Kelsey, had her doing basic commands only after ONE WEEK! At the end of the 4 week program, our puppy is sweeter than ever, well-behaved, calmer, and SO MUCH HAPPIER! Kelsey trained our puppy (and us) with a positive and ethical demeanor. We are in shock with the overall improvements made in such a short amount of time. THANK YOU KELSEY and Beyond the Dog!!! More...

My dog Carlitos has a very extensive abuse history. He was nervous of everything, especially male strangers, and if someone knocked on the door or rang the doorbell he would go charging and slamming into the door biting and clawing at it. My dog also had a bite history with a stranger. Beyond the dog was able to put me in touch with a trainer immediately who listened to my concerns, and then came up with a plan to address the issues; explaining the theory behind the methods the entire time. I was skeptical, but after the first day I noticed immediate results. After a month of training it's as if I have entire new dog. The door charging has virtually ceased, and his comfortableness with people is way up. I can visibly see Carlitos is more confident in himself, and I feel confident that in situations where his anxiety starts to best him that I can help bring him back down. Beyond the Dog's approach to positive reinforcement is admirable and I will be using them for all my future training and would recommend them to anyone who has a dog with an extensive abuse history.

Everyone i have dealt with has been wonderful but Ashley our trainer has been a life saver!!!

Now that we have worked with Beyond the Dog our house is a new place. I am so greatful they can all be together in the same room and love each other again.

Erica did a stellar job with us and our senior rescue dog (with anxious/aggressive behaviors) Lucy. She was educational and evidence-based with her trainings. She was patient and kind, and Lucy just adored her and has greatly improved in her behaviors. We continue to practice the training methods, as our dog's behaviors didn't start overnight and they aren't getting fixed overnight. We are hopeful that if we stay consistent with what Erica has taught us, that we'll continue to see growth. More...

Disappointing on some very deep levels. We went to him for marriage counseling, because my ex's family was his cash cow. Bob Foster took sides. If you need real help, I am sorry this simply is not the place. I finished with this organization more confused and lost than i began. It was over 10 years ago and I still regret seeing Bob. My discouragement got so much worse after this experience. It took me years to recover. More...

This is our third puppy to go through the program with Beyond The Dog. As expected, we are not disappointed. Ashley did a great job with our Rottweiler, Samson. I love their positive-reinforcement method of training.

So glad we chose Beyond the Dog to help with our new puppy! We have 6 kids between the ages of 2 and 13 and we really wanted our newest addition to our family to transition well. We are also hoping to register him as an emotion support animal in the near future and needed to have him trained well to behave in social situations. Our trainer, Ashley, was more than happy to allow our kids help during his lessons so that our puppy would respond to everyone in our family. Even our 2 year old loved teaching her puppy “place”. (So cute!) Rizzo not only surprised us week after week with how quickly he learned and how responsive he was to his training, but it was obvious that he had a special bond with Ashley. I know he will miss his time with her, but we plan on coming back for follow up sessions as he gets older! � Definitely recommend Beyond the Dog! More...
