Private Dog Training Sessions

If you are looking to work on specific behaviors for your dog — you’re in the right spot! Day Training is a private dog training option available to Metro Dogs clients during daycare or as a drop off session!

Day Training is ideal for dogs that need to work on “naughty” behaviors like jumping on guests, pulling on the leash, and so forth! It’s also perfect for dogs to learn cooperative care skills like using the scratch board to file their nails, wearing a muzzle, or having their paws touched. And just wait- there’s more! Day Training can also give your dog confidence building through basic agility skills.

The best part about Day Training is that it provides you, the dog parent, with the ability to select what your dog needs to work on with a certified dog trainer. Bethany, CCDT, will be able to provide you with the support you need to continue the training outside of Metro Dogs.

Sydney (she/her)

Sydney has been working with dogs since 2017, but she has always had an affinity for animals for as long as she can remember! She has spent the last three years exclusively pursuing her love for dog training. This transition helped spark her passion for not only teaching, but also helping create a healthy bond between dogs and their pet parent!

Sydney is currently in the process of earning her degree in behavioral psychology and plans to continue her educational journey within the dog training community, as well. Sydney believes that it is critical to keep current on the ever-changing science and techniques used within the dog industry in order to best set pet parents up for success.

As an advocate for science-based methodologies, Sydney uses positive reinforcement and Fear Free based approaches while training. She has had so much fun putting these practices to use while participating in Metro Dogs Trick of the Month program, and she’s so happy that she gets to share these ideals while teaching the Puppy Basics in the Social Classroom and the Trick Training class!

Sydney believes that training should be fun for all involved, and nothing makes her happier than seeing pet parents and their animal companions succeed!

Bethany the Metro Dogs head Trainer with Pete her Aussie/Hound Mix with the Minneapolis City Skyline in the Background

Beth (she/her)

- Head Trainer

Beth has been with Metro Dogs since September of 2021 as a daycare handler, and took over as trainer for Trick of the Month and Puppy Pre-K in April of 2022. She has spent her entire life surrounded by all kinds of dogs, but most frequently herding breeds (breeds that she now adores!). Growing up in the Chicagoland area and then attending the University of North Dakota for her undergraduate degree, Beth is no stranger to cold, snowy winters! Beth adores working at Metro Dogs because of how rewarding it is to get to build bonds with each dog that comes in, whether it be in group or training one-on-one. She is currently a Minneapolis resident that lives with her AHS rescue, Pete (an Aussie / Coonhound mix, not-so-surprisingly!) and adores spending most of her free time with him by her side. As of June 2023, Beth earned her CCDT, graduating with distinction from Catch Canine Trainers Academy.
