What differentiates us from other dog training companies is the level of training each individual trainer receives. Each of Beyond the Dog’s trainers work under the supervision of three individuals. Our Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist – one of less than 50 practicing in the entire country, leads the team. Our Certified Dog Behavior Consultant–the only one in all of Kansas and Western Missouri– with over 20 years of experience, perfects our procedures by examining precise details in handling. Our senior Certified Professional Dog Trainer, collaborates in supervising all of our efforts. There is not another trainer in the Kansas City metro area with this type of training, supervision, and team! Their hands on experience with these leaders in the field sets them apart!
Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists (CAABs) are individuals who, through the Animal Behavior Society, are board certified. Applicants have met stringent requirements including relevant doctoral level education, recommendation from colleagues, original contributions to the field of animal behavior, and, of course, comprehensive applied experience. Currently there are fewer than 50 Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists throughout the United States.
