Training Services

We have multiple ways to assist in your dog training journey from in-person to online to suit a variety of lifestyles. 
"We have been playing a lot of the games and I have noticed a huge difference right away. He has been more calm and less alert to everything going on outdoors. He has also been waiting to the side of the door and waiting for me to call him to go out whereas before he would run around and try to rush right out. I was blown away by the change."

life with your dog should be enjoyable and training should be fun! 

We can take your current dog training struggles and turn them into strengths! 

Dogs can be our greatest companions and bring so much joy to our lives. They can also, at times, be our greatest challenge!  Whether you have a mischief-maker or a barker or a puller or a scaredy-"cat," we can help turn them into calm and confident canines. We are gamechangers!


Beyond the Sit is here to support your dreams of the perfect life with your canines in a fear- and force-free manner through the joy of games and using concepts to reshape your dog's brain to make the right choices.  In this way, we are building your relationship with your dog in a positive manner leading to long-lasting, real-life results. 



Schedule a Discovery Call

The discovery call is our quick 15-minute consult where we find out what you are looking for in a dog trainer and what you expect to achieve with your dog. You pick the date and time on our phone calendar and we will give you a call at that time! Once we learn your needs we will see which of our training options suit you best.


Enroll & Onboard

Once we decide on the best way forward, we will send you our contract and invoice for your first session. Your payment reserves your time slot for your training program. You will also be sent our Welcome Packet to get you set up and ready for our first appointment.  


The work (& fun) begins!

Here's where the magic happens! Through games-based training, we will see your relationship with your dog steadily improve and see your dog grow into an outstanding canine companion.

About the program:

Every dog is an individual and so is your household. Dog training is not one-size-fits-all and through this option, we can target your specific needs tailored to your dog and home. We begin with an in-depth phone consultation and follow-up in-person one week later with your training plan ready to go.  We will set you up with 3 basic concepts and games for each that you will then put into practice over the next 3 weeks with weekly check-ins. 

Follow-up sessions beyond the first month are $60 for a 45-minute session.

What's included:

  • Your Training Plan

  • Weekly Homework Sheets

  • Bonus E-books and/or Handouts

  • Weekly Check-Ins and Support
