Who We Are

With deep roots in Kansas City, Beyond the Dog is a science-based dog training company offering services with the luxury of private training. Relying on 30+ years of experience and doctoral-level education, we strive to provide an unmatched level of service.

Driven by a love of science and dogs, our Kansas City Dog Training Team have dedicated their careers to improving the lives of animals. We are passionate about dog behavior and it shows! All of our trainers hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in an animal related field. In addition to their formal education and prior to joining our team, they have served as marine mammal trainers, zookeepers, and behavioral scientists.
After joining the team, our staff receive unparalleled training in dog behavior and training under Dr. Echterling-Savage and Sean Savage. Our local Board Certified Behavior Analyst and doctoral candidate, Allyson Salzer, provides direct and continuous supervision and mentoring to each of our trainers. Under their guidance, our trainers strive to provide the best training experience to the dogs (and their humans) of Kansas City. This is the Beyond the Dog difference!
