Our Story

At Beyond Behavior, we are passionate about working with dogs and their owners to create a stronger bond and a happier life together.  We know that training is a neverending journey, and strive to mold behaviors and give you the skills to go above and beyond with your dog. Our team specializes in working breeds, aggressive dogs, and basic obedience. We believe in a variety of training methods and work with everything from puppyhood to advanced behavior modifications. Whether you are looking for one-on-one lessons or board and training services, we will work with you to develop a customized training plan that fits your dog's needs and lifestyle. We also offer overnight boarding for when you need to be away from your furry friend.

As a husband & wife team, we are dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment for your dog to learn and grow. We believe that every dog is unique and deserves individualized attention and personalized training methodology. That's why we take the time to get to know each dog and their owner to create a training plan that works for them and will grow over time. We are passionate about helping dogs and their owners achieve their full potential and create a lifetime of happy memories together.
