Client Reviews:

Beth came for an hour and a half session socializing my yorkie to her new pitbull roommate. Not only are my dogs doing very good together after only one session!! But we also were given a lot of valuable advice from Beth. She is a very knowledgable person who truly loves what she does. I learned so much and am so happy I found her at Joyful Dogs of Michigan! While she was there for one purpose, she went above and beyond showing us how we can train them in others ways too. I highly recommend this service. Thank you Beth!

We had a great experience working with Beth! So glad we found her! She saved us a lot of frustrations with Solo and Beckham and had such effective and great tips as well as practical information! We saw results very quickly. What is unique about Beth is that her interest in our dog doesn't end with termination of training! In fact she stays interested and in touch with our dogs. She calls, texts and even drops by to check on them and make sure things are going according to plan.. Beth truly loves them and has passion for working with them! I can tell That just by how happy they are to see her! Truly a special and kind person. Thank you Beth 🙏

Beth is the best. Had my puppy lined out in a few hours. Great personality and spirit


Beth was an absolute joy to work with 🙂 She had our puppy Mila learning new commands within minutes of first showing up! Every week our puppy was catching on more and more to Beth’s techniques. Now our puppy is listening and completing all the commands that she was taught !! I would highly recommend Beth to anyone who is serious about their dog and it’s training! She is top tier in my book ! Thank you Beth!!

Beth is our dogs best friend....literally as soon as she walks in the door you can see Bella’s energy change instantly. There’s no way to explain the bond she has with dogs. A true professional, very knowledgeable and hilarious! She is there for you AND the dog. She makes sure every dog’s getting their needs met as well as yours. She has great problem solving solutions for “specific problem” behaviors. Works with you, family, and the dog in YOUR environment. All around wonderful! We will be back for advanced training!

If I could give Beth 100 stars, it still wouldn't be good enough! She is an amazing trainer AND an amazing person! Our Yorkie Daisy loved her and learned a lot. She gave my husband and I the tools we need to continue training her with confidence. If you are having any kind of issue with your dog, young or old, Beth has a solution. Best money we have spent in a long time!

Beth helped us with our puppy, Ella. She is 3/4 Siberian Husky and 1/4 German Shepherd. Ella was a so hyperactive that we needed professional help. Beth was very observant and experienced and she quickly made recommendations and modeled every practice in a way that we could replicate ourselves. She is down-to-earth, well spoken and kind!! My dog, Ella, loves Beth and we do too!!! Beth is worth her price and then some!!!!!🐾

Beth loves our German Shepherd and he loves her. Its great that she comes to the house. It allows her to see how he behaves in a familiar place not distracted by other people or dogs. It also gives her the opportunity to teach and correct us in how we work with him at home. She even came at a time when our grandkids could be there so she could teach them. Our dog is a handful but she is able to make him mind and show us how to do it. We definitely recommend you use Beth for training your dog.

Great experience, very knowledgeable and thankful for the help. Toby can be where other dogs are and now has great house manners! Next up will be my brothers naught little one. Thank you! 🙂

Denise J.

It was a pleasure to work with Beth! I did both in-home training and the board and train with her, and she has so much knowledge and expertise. She truly treated my puppy like she was her own, and my dog loved being around her. I noticed a drastic difference in my puppy's behavior after working with Beth and I really appreciate her help. Beth is still very responsive after the training and gives tips/advice whenever I need it. I highly recommend training your dog with Beth!

Beth was amazing to work with! She is funny and truly passionate about her work. I knew we were leaving our puppy Obie in great hands for the crate and board program. As a puppy, he now has a great foundation and we can already see a difference in his behavior and ability to obey commands. We would recommend Beth to anyone looking for professional dog training!

Megan G.

Beth was great! She provided us with many training exercises to continue what she started with our dog. She provided insight as to why he was acting the way he was.

I'm so glad that we used her services. My entire family now knows what we need to do to make our dog the best dog.

Excellent experience with Beth. She is a consummate professional dog trainer with a real love for the dogs she trains. I would recommend her without any hesitation.

I was very worried that we would not be able to keep our newly-adopted retired racing Greyhound due to behavioral issues. Within 20 minutes of Beth Licht arriving I I knew it was going to be okay.

She tackled our top four problems in her first visit, and has provided additional support by email and text during the time between visits.

The money we have spent has been among the best investments we have ever made. On each weekly visit she has given us new skills to be able to shape our dog's behavior. She has been truly outstanding!

I consider Beth to be a magical dog-whisperer. I am confident that she is creating a road map that will result in our having an obedient dog who is a cooperative member of the family!

We have an 8 month old Newfie, Emmett,who refused to get in the car. It wasn't as much of a problem when he was younger because we would just pick him up and put him in. Now he weights over 100 pounds and only my husband could get him in the car.

I contacted Joyful Dogs and explained the problem. Beth, the owner, has a lot of experience with large breed dogs and agreed to work with him. In just 4 sessions Emmett was jumping in and out of the car like a pro!

We are very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of Joyful Dogs and won't hesitate to call her again if we have any other problems with our dogs. We highly recommend Joyful Dogs of Michigan!

- Cindy G.

Beth was so helpful, kind and considerate!

She took the time to go over each of my concerns and issues. We are Joyful Dog followers for life!

Moses and I just loved her!

- Louann D

We couldn't be more pleased with the training we received with Beth!

Our one year old Pit Bull Mix rescue dog was potentially going back, BUT with Beth's help, we were equipped with the best tools to make our home a great place for our new puppy, Newman!.

He is now living peaceably with our two cats and our family and we couldn't be happier!!

- Megan H.

Beth is a great trainer! We have a 4 year old American Eskimo we rescued with a slew of behavior issues. Beth was able to give us the techniques to help him get along with children, other dogs, and humans he was unsure of!

She has a direct approach and addresses any issues you bring up. I have no doubt Toby will continue to do better! I would recommend her for any behavior modifications and obedience training!

- Chelsea M.

Beth is awesome and has taught me so much! Tyrion loves you, Beth and will miss you!

- Desiree C-LF.

My wife got a German Shorthaired Pointer puppy and we weren't sure how to get him to obey. Beth took him as a student and he turned out to be the best dog we ever owned.

We hired her for puppy training, basic, then advanced obedience because we were so happy with her work!

I tell everyone who wants a dog trainer to call Joyful Dogs of Michigan. They're great!
