Beth Fabel

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.

Alison Eberhard

Alison has been training dogs for a very, very long time. She took her first group class when she was only 7 years old, and let's just say that was a few decades ago! Alison loves to learn, she's attended countless classes, seminars, workshops, and camps to increase her education and experience with all things dog related! She currently shares her home with multiple dogs including a Berger Picard, a Pomeranian, and a handful of herding dogs. While herding dogs are her first love, she can't imagine her life without at least one "little". She's also had golden retrievers, many pits and pitty types as well as fostered countless boxer and boxer mixes and many other breeds owned or fostered over the years Alison grew up with Doberman Pinschers. Her mother had the number one obedience doberman in California the year before Alison was born. You could say she was born into a pack of dogs. Alison loves watching dogs and their owners bond as they learn to better communicate with each other.
