Expert Pet Trainers

Meet the Beyond the Dog Team

Beyond the Dog is made of a team of uniquely qualified individuals. Although each individual is more than qualified to train dogs and cats, what makes Beyond the Dog so exceptional is that we act as a team.

Our team is led by a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, one of less than 50 in the entire country, and the only Certified Dog Behavior Consultant in all of Kansas and Western Missouri. No other trainer or set of trainers in the entire state of Kansas or Missouri have worked hand in hand with a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist and a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant like Beyond the Dog’s trainers have. The level of training that each trainer has received is beyond what is required and is at a level that rivals and surpasses some of the top trainers in the country.

Not only have the trainers been trained by the only Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist and Certified Dog Behavior Consultant in all of Kansas City, together as a team we discuss cases and collaboratively decide on the best strategies for your dog or cat’s behavior.

Each team member brings a unique skill to the table, and the collaboration strengthens each member, benefiting all of Beyond the Dog’s clients. We work as a team continuously improving the way in which we train. In our practice, we focus on building healthy, fulfilling relationships with every animal as well as our clients. Beyond the Dog’s training philosophy is not only both dog and cat centered, but also owner centered. Beyond the Dog has published work directly related to dog behavior and has been featured in leading behavioral journals. As a team, we go BEYOND what it takes to be great animal trainers!
