Training and Behavior Solutions
Better Results Through Science, Guaranteed.
  1. Behavior Change Programs
    Private, in-home lessons designed for anxious, fearful, or aggressive dog's. Emotional issues require specialized knowledge and techniques to change the way the dog interprets their environment. Modules are designed to systematically turn fear into joy and relaxation.
  2. Private Training Sessions
    One-on-one in home lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual pet and owner. The focus is on basic obedience and resolving nuisance behaviors such as house training, jumping, and pulling on the leash. With private training, we can focus on the problem in the context of where it is taking place providing powerful, long-lasting results.

    Rocket Science is an active member of the community providing free lessons in safe interactions with dogs to veterinary clinics, schools, youth groups and shelters, and offering discounts on services for newly adopted pets.
  4. Professional Seminars

Testimonials

   Instructional  

--Bethany did a great job organizing a large quantity of information into an engaging, thoughtful, succinct and, most importantly, up-to-date presentation. Being an EMT, this was largely review information for me but I remained focused and engaged through the entire seminar. Bethany knows her stuff! I highly recommend this for anyone who owns dogs or works with dogs on a day-to-day basis. The things you will learn, especially the decision making and time management skills, can make all the difference.

--Her weekly one-hour training has been fun for us, but more importantly, a blast for our canine, Samantha. 
Bethany, with Rocket Science Training has a keen understanding and innate ability with dogs insofar as to how they think and act as they do. It is with this knowledge that, when applied to behavioral training, makes for a well adjusted pet and dog that is a happy member of the family. Users of Bethany can relax with the knowledge that a friendly, dependable and well informed service is handling the assignment. I strongly recommend her and our dog does too!
