“Nothing makes me happier than helping clients achieve the best possible relationship with their dogs. I work hard to provide solid, effective training and behavior modification advice -- stuff that makes sense, that's do-able, that moves you to your goals, while maintaining science-based, humane techniques.”


Betsy Schwartz, cpdt-ka

“I am committed to only positive, force-free, dog-friendly training methods, which create a bond of trust and foster teamwork. Training is all about relationships and clear, two-way communication between handler and dog. Training should always be enjoyable for both human and animal alike.”
