Skylar Lynch, ABCDT, CDTI
Hi, I'm Skylar! I am the owner of Top Dog Behavior and Training and have the honor of working with dog guardians from all over the world to better bond with their dogs through training!
I've had the unique experience of working with dogs of many breeds and personalities over the last 10 years, as well as assisting pet parents in improving the diets of their beloved cats and dogs to improve their overall wellness and nutrition over the last 4 years. Prior to receiving my first dog training certification in 2018, I had experience working with and training horses for many years before shifting my focus to working with dogs and their people. Upon learning just how much diet and wellness plays into the behavior of our furry friends, I began to learn more about pet nutrition and began gaining certifications specializing in pet food and raw feeding in 2020.
Throughout my career I have made a commitment to providing my clients with the most up-to-date, scientifically valid, and humane training methods. I continue to uphold this commitment by continuing to gain certifications from highly regarded organizations within the industry, as well as attending industry conferences and continuing education opportunities from some of the best trainers and experts in the world.
With a commitment to force free, science-based training, I promise to:
Treat both you and your dog with compassion
Always make sure you understand the "why" of the training we are doing
Provide training that puts your dog's safety, well-being, and unique personality first - no fear, intimidation, or pain will ever be used!
Provide top-quality and proven methods to help you achieve your training goals
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your dog, and I can't wait to hear from you!
