What separates Beyond the Dog from other pet training companies is the level of training that each pet trainer receives. Each one of our trainers works under the supervision and following in the footsteps of our Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist – one of less than 50 practicing in the entire country. Our pet trainers also have comprehensive, hands on experience with our Certified Dog Behavior Consultant—one of only three throughout the greater Houston area—with over 20 years of experience. No other trainers throughout the great Houston area have had an opportunity as great as this!
A Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (CAAB) is an individual who is board certified through the Animal Behavior Society. Individuals that apply have met rigorous standards including doctoral level education with relevant coursework, endorsement from colleagues, contributions to the animal behavior field, and, of course, extensive hands on experience.
