Beth, Swiffer, Argos, and Jasper:

Beth Fabel has been training dogs and their humans since 1992. As a rescue volunteer and an animal shelter worker, she learned that issues with behavior were the number one reason for dogs being given up by their owners and wanted to help change that. Beth's educational background as an occupational therapist gives her a unique perspective of the human end of the team that enhances her skills as a trainer. She enjoys helping people learn to communicate with their dogs and enjoy a more fulfilling and interactive relationship with them. She is an expert at finding humor in our lives with dogs.

Beth has trained and titled several varied breeds in obedience and agility and also participates in herding, tracking and K9 Nosework. As an active trainer and competitor in dog sports, she works year round with her own dogs and regularly attends seminars and workshops to exchange ideas and further her education.

Beth teaches the Fundamentals for Performance and Beginner Novice Competition Obedience classes.
