Happy Halloween from Beyond The Leash!

October 27, 2011

What an AMAZING fall it has been at Beyond The Leash! September was a very busy month. After hosting a successful French Ring Regional, we participated in the New England Pet Expo and ended the month by presenting a seminar near Buffalo, New York.

The New England Pet Expo was a huge success with an estimated 10,000 plus attendees! Our booth featured our pet dog training program as well as the famous DogTread treadmills. Their treadmills come in small, medium, and large sizes and are a fantastic way to keep your dogs conditioned during inclement weather, especially throughout the winter months, and are ideal for owners with limited time.

Dogs at the expo were able to give the DogTread treadmills a test drive, and the positive feedback was overwhelming. If you think one of these treadmills may be a nice fit for your household, check out Beyond The Leash’s website to find out more about this awesome product! Many of our current clients have decided to bring a DogTread into their own homes, and not only are they enjoying the physical perks, they are surprised at the mental benefits provided to anxious or hyper dogs as well.

And then to add to the excitement, on October 1st, Scott Williams, owner and lead trainer of Beyond The Leash dog training, presented an Introduction to Scentwork seminar at Southtowns Dog Training Club in Hamburg, NY. With nearly 20 working spots, we were able to get much accomplished with some of the area’s finest dogs. Handlers were able to experience firsthand many different approaches to detection work and see some of our own bed bug detection dogs demonstrating their skills.

While we are thankful for a wonderful fall, the weather tells us that winter is right around the corner. Our busiest season for Doggy Boot Camps is between the end of November and the beginning of January, so be sure to book sooner rather than later if you need quality care and results-based training for your furry friend over the upcoming holidays.  Contact Scott Williams at 866-957-DOGS(3647) or feel free to e-mail him at for more details. And lastly, we hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween with their pooches this year. We’d love to see what kind of costume ideas you have come up with, so please feel free to post pictures of your dogs in costume on our facebook page by clicking here. Become a fan of Beyond The Leash today if you haven’t already!

French Ring Eastern Zone Championship 9/17/11 Boxford, MA 01810

September 13, 2011

The Patriot Ring Club is hosting its second trial this upcoming weekend in the field behind the West Boxford Library. Dogs from all across the nation as well as Canada will be competing in arguably the most difficult dog sport around. French Ring is comprised of obedience exercises, jump execution, and bite work and demands dogs with exceptional drive, unbelievable control, and true natural athleticism.

Four club members will be competing this weekend, including Scott Williams who created the club in spring of 2010. Williams also owns Beyond The Leash, a local dog training business that specializes in problem dogs.

The trial will be sanctioned by North American Ring Association (NARA). And judge Yves Billat is traveling in from France and decoys Matt Nieuwkoop and Eduardo Loyola will be coming in from Washington state and Puerto Rico all for this one day event! Spectators are welcome, but if you decide to join us, please leave your dogs at home. The address of the field is 188 Washington Street, Boxford, MA 01810. The trial will begin promptly at 9:00AM on Saturday, September 17th. To learn more about this trial or if you have questions about dog training, call 866-957-3647(DOGS) today!
