About Beki

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Beki and my family would just LOVE to have your four-legged family member come stay with us! I have been a professional dog trainer for over 9 years and have worked with dogs in a professional setting for over 13 years. As a dog trainer I use positive reinforcement methods to help teach your dog new skills, correct problematic or even aggressive behaviors and keep exhisting manners. I do not believe in using fear, force or physical touch. I am a Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and of The Pet Professionals Guild. In addition to being a dog trainer, I also have worked in rescue, Founding both Shiba Scout Rescue and Save Me Scout Rescue, doggie day cares, pet sitting and veterinary clinics. I can house your puppy or adult dog in my home for pet sitting, day trains or board and trains. I can also do private training or day trains within your home, come by for the occassional potty break or walk or whatever you need! I work with all breeds, ages and behavioral issues and I specialize in basic manners, fear, reactivity and aggression.

Our home is over 2100 square feet and has 1/3 of an acre fenced in back yard. Our home and yard both allow for separation if dogs do not get along with each other or other animals. Our human family consists of my husband and I and our three young girls, Kailynn, Ashtyn and Emberly. My husband and I do work full time but have opposite schedules to reduce the amount of time that no one is home. We do ask that you bring a crate for your dog to be in when no one is home.

Our four legged animal family consists of 3 dogs and 4 cats. Since I do dog rescue I may have the occassional foster dog but fosters are generally not introduced to dogvacay guests.

My husband is also a groomer so we can send your pooch home looking their very best! We offer both bathing, nail trims, ear cleaning and full grooming services!

Check out some of the awesome dogs we've worked with through training and rescue in our photo section! We hope to add your pooch to the pack with a truly PAWSITIVE experience!

She sent pictures and kept me updated any time there were any issues
Thank you for taking excellent care of Yuki. I am so happy that he was able to stay where he is loved and cared for so well. Also, I appreciated the updates and photos on how he was doing during his stay, that meant a lot. Thanks Beki!
Beki and her family are great and it's comforting to know our dog is in good hands with them. There are other pups around so playtime is plentiful. We trust Beki completely and know our dog is on vacation too.
Our Rosie was in good hands with Beki and we would recommend her to anyone who loves their pet and wants them to have the best care possible while they are away!
Count loved his time with Beki. She really knows her stuff!
I very much appreciated the flexibility with dates. Beki is always very good with Rosie.
Our Toby was a recent adoption when we dropped him with Beki to watch him during our out-of-state vacation. We were nervous new dog owners and Toby had already shown his dog-aggression to us which we were worried about. Beki quickly introduced Toby to the other dogs in her care and before we knew it, he was playing calmly with the other dogs! Much to our surprise, Toby was showing signs of hope of rehabilitation! We are thankful for Beki's ability to work with Toby during our vacation and keep him and the other dogs safe during his stay. The only reason I gave her 4 stars instead of 5 is because the new leash and harness we left for our dog both came back ripped/chewed through. We have already had to replace these items once before, so it was upsetting that they now have to be replaced again.

I can't say enough positive things about Beki and her family. They are wonderful and not once during our 9 day vacation did I have to worry about my two dogs. She sent me daily photos and updates and they had a great time. Highly recommend her! Thanks so much for taking such good care of our fur babies!!

Beki is the best! She has been so helpful to me and my little girl (a mastwieller ) who is new to our family as of this Christmas.
She has been so wonderful in answering questions, teaching me tips to help the training process and I never feel like I am bothering her.
I'm so happy to have found Beki who has been available, friendly, professional, and great with advice to help us in bringing a new member into our family.

Thank you Beki...as always great care!
My pup was well cared for! It was a LONG stay and his first stay at that, but Beki was sensitive to the fact that he was a puppy, new with other animals, and might have some anxieties. Beki responded to texts very promptly, and texted photos of our buddy playing and doing well, which was a great peace of mind.
In the future, we will be sending our pup there as well!

Thank you for taking such good care of our puppies whole we were out of town.
Dog seems much more calm and less likely to jump on me.
Again, Beki took great care of our tiny pup while we were vacationing. She is the only person I will probably ever trust to take great care of my dog, the way I do, when I can't be with him. Our dog, Simon, had a fantastic time this week and we were able to rest knowing he was in the best hands possible.

Highly recommend! My dogs were calm, relaxed, and happy when I picked them up. I was very nervous to board my dogs, but would happily send them to Beki again. They had a great time and appear have been very well taken care of. I feed a raw diet and Beki was happy to work with that. They were in a family setting and seem to have gotten lots of positive attention and play. I am very satisfied with our experience.

I had 3 big dogs stay with Beki, and she was MORE than up to the task. The dogs were very happy and well cared for. Beki was able to care for my post-operation dog as well giving medications. Her yard is nice and big, and there are at least 2 fenced areas for more separation if needed! Beki is very caring and smart, and she also works in dog behavior which is a huge plus in my mind! I would LOVE to have my dogs stay with her again!

Perfect.
Beki does a great job of watching over Louie. She pointed out that his teeth seemed to be bothering him and indeed when his teeth were cleaned he had 3 teeth removed and is a much happier pup! Louie is 11 years old and has spent very little time away from home. He was very stressed in the kennel environment. He has adapted to Beki’s home with ease and loves her little girls. It has been wonderful to find a place where he can feel like part of the family and Beki’s knowledge of dogs is a bonus in knowing that Louie will be well taken care of! We are very happy to have found Beki and her family!

Beki is such a pleasure to work with and our 'kids' really enjoy staying with her and her family!
I did the 2 week board and train with Beki, and I know that Jackson had a great time. The back yard is huge, and when he wasn't working on getting along better with new dogs he was out chasing squirrels and laying in the sun, at first on his own side in the dog run and then later out in the larger yard with all the other dogs.
It was the perfect choice because Beki was able to bring in a variety of dogs with different reactions and teach Jackson how to get along with them instead of going for the jugular. In the year since I adopted him, he has never been calm or comfortable around other dogs - but when I walked in he was hanging out happily in a house with several of them. I think he made his first friends! She spent an hour going over what she had taught him and what I needed to learn to keep the progress going. It's hard to leave your dog for 2 weeks, but if you have a trip planned or need some extra attention for a reactive dog, this is a great place where you know they will get a lot of care and attention.

Great place, good care of my dog!
My Howie stayed with Beki for 2 weeks and he had so much fun! He's a dog aggressive dog so she gave him his own room and gradually socialized him with the several other dogs in the house and after a while he was playing with all of them! He was so highly reactive before that I never thought I'd see the day! She also clearly worked on his basic commands a lot as he is so much better at them now. Beki was great with Howie. I'd definitely recommend her for boarding and training, especially for aggressive dogs.

Our dog had a great stay with Beki and we would recommend and use this service with Beki again in the future.
Beki was great with our Great Dane. He was very happy when we showed up and not just with us but very excited and loving to Beki also. That was pleasant to see and made it a definite that we will use her again. Beki was very open and friendly and sent pics and answered texts when we checked on Titan, that really kept our hearts at peace. It is also very obvious that Beki has a complete love and heart for all animals! We are grateful to have someone we trust!

Ollie was very well cared for and happy when we picked him up. Very good 1st experience! Would recommend.
We were able to relax on our weekend away knowing that our Simon was with Beki. She is our dog trainer as well, so it was great to know he was with a person who knows him well and whom he is comfortable with already.
Beki was great. Took good care of our little girl while we were away!!!
Beki has been an excellent host! I love receiving photo updates while I'm away, and Bentley was so excited to stay with her for a second time over the holidays. We will definitely book with Beki again the next time we go away.
Jackson's stay with Beki was a great experience. She is very easy to reach and responds to any message via text or email in a very timely manner. She sent pictures and an update of his stay. I was glad to know from a detailed message that Jackson was in good hands. Upon picking him up he did not seem at all stressed as he has been after staying in other places(i.e.boarding kennels). He seemed right at "home". Thank you for Beki for the care you provided. We will definitely use your services again!!

Beki was so awesome with my pup Sky! She gave me great updates and pictures while we were away. With me being nervous she helped me realize that Sky was doing just fine. She gave us great training tips for Sky and I would go back to her in a heartbeat for our next trip.

Our dogs Zoey and Deuce came home from their stay with Beki well behaved and less anxious than when I dropped them off. Beki did a great job training Zoey to not jump and to follow simple commands.
Beki was so, so great! This was my first time leaving my puppy alone so I was really worried. I texted her a lot but she was really patient with me, giving me lots of updates and asking questions about Henry's history and personality. She also worked with Henry on some fun new tricks and wrote up a guide for me to continue our training. Henry seemed happy and well-taken care of when I picked him up. I will definitely be asking Beki to watch Henry again next time I go out of town. :) Such a great experience!
