About Us

Chris Booth
Chris has been an island resident for the past eighteen years. Chris worked in banking when she first came to this island. She acquired her first personal dog at that time (Lieba, a female Doberman). She later adopted Barron (an abused male Doberman). After many joyous years with Lieba and Barron, they went to heaven. At this point, Chris was employed with the Law Firm of Eugene "Dean" Laurich (nka Laurich & Wiseman, P.A.). Chris also married Chip Booth (previous Assistant Tournament Director for the Heritage Golf Tournament). She has now been married for twelve years AND COUNTING! Chip and Chris obtained three Coton de Tulear’s (Jolie, Jasmine and Jesse) from Spain, Hungary and Hungary respectively. After much sole searching, Chris decided to leave Laurich & Wiseman, P.A. to pursue her dream of working with dogs. Chris left in June of 2006 to attend a rigorous three-month dog trainers program from Triple Crown Dog Academy in Hutto, Texas. Chris can not express her gratitude to the instructors for her life altering experience. After staying an additional two months in Texas (to continue her education), Chris came home with her new demo dog Beau (an Austrian Sheppard puppy). Now Chris is looking forward to helping many dog owners in the Low Country with their Canine needs.

What our clients are saying about us.....

"We have an 8-month old Chihuahua-Toy Poodle mix named Daisy, who is very active and eager to learn and please.  When we decided to talk to a trainer, we already felt that we had a pretty good dog and that we just had a few items that we wanted some help with, such as coming when called and being pleasant and respectable in public. After seeing how they interacted with Daisy and how they interacted with us during our consultation, we knew we had chosen the right trainers. In just the first visit, Chris gave us useful tools and training tips that we could easily implement with our dog and into our life. We learned that it wasn’t just about training Daisy, it was also about changing a lot of misconceptions we had about how we should interact with Daisy. Their techniques make training fun for us as well as Daisy. It was amazing that within just a few sessions, Daisy was learning the things we wanted to work on and so much more.  Daisy gets so excited each time she sees Chris."

"I have three “boys”.  One of the two-legged variety who is 16 years old and a high school sophomore.  His name is Harry.  He thinks he’s the man of the house.  Next is Riley.  Of the four-legged variety and coming in at just under 10 pounds, he knows he’s the man of the house.  Finally, there’s Kazoo.  A young upstart and technically just out of puppy hood, this four point nine pound fireball acts like he’s the man of the house.  Then there’s me.  I cook, clean, do laundry, work, pay bills, take care of everyone else, and this IS MY HOUSE.

Somehow, I seemed to have lost sight of the fact that my house is MINE.  I was too busy trying to get everyone to behave to have any time to correct the negative behaviors that were taking all the fun out of having the dogs in the first place.  The human boy was the easy one.  Make the Honor Roll or you don’t get to drive the car.  Now I have an Honor Roll student.  My four-legged boys weren’t as easy.  Riley barked ALL the time.  He barked when someone walked by the front of the house.  He barked when I was on the phone.  He barked just to hear himself bark sometimes, or at least that’s what I was thinking.  Then there was the problem of any male coming into the house.  Riley would nip – no, bite.  Embarrassing?  You bet.  Kazoo…well, he’s pretty much perfect except for the fact that the little guy doesn’t know the difference between the grass in the backyard and the carpet in my bedroom.  Riley was housebroken in two days.  Kazoo was a year old and still didn’t know the difference between Berber and Bermuda .  Nothing I tried worked for either of them…..and I tried everything.

I called Chris.  I’d like to be able to say that money wasn’t an issue.  Unfortunately, I can’t.  We live on a budget, and a very tight one at that.  For a very reasonable fee I got the very best for my boys.  At first, they got 10-15 minute visits every day, then every other day, and I was charged just for the actual time spent with the dogs.   I couldn’t believe how smart they really were and how fast they learned – especially Riley…five years old and set in his ways, or so I thought.  Riley’s barking has stopped, and Kazoo is housebroken.  They both know basic commands, and Kazoo even knows how to do a few tricks!   We integrated Harry into the training so that Riley, who is skittish by nature, would be less afraid of Harry.  The bad habits are gone and my house is mine again! 

I highly recommend Red-Beau to ANYONE who loves their dogs enough to want them well mannered in any situation."

"We recently purchased a one year old labradoodle, cute, friendly, but still very unmanageable with immature and puppyish behaviors.  It's been fun for "Skipper", Jim and I to work with Chris on teaching Skipper to be a social member of our family - walking on a leash without pulling, sits and stays, no jumping, no barking, and being respectful of our other pets without rough-housing.

 

Chris has been very adept in not only sensing Skipper's personality and learning skills, but to adapt his training needs and the techniques used to the differences in styles and personalities of both Jim and myself, and to the operational patterns of our household in general.

 

Chris explains and demonstrates all techniques in great detail and answers questions or modifies them if needed. We all look forward to seeing Chris and our training sessions!

Skipper is now a social dog and happy member of our family. A "win/win" for all of us!"

Rocky is a changed dog due to your positive training.
He has learned to follow commands, has stopped barking when people leave the house and go to the door.  He now is not so afraid and has relaxed.  He loves the extra treats and has learned a lot of new tricks.  He is a different dog now!  Thanks for your help! Alicia and Rocky"

"Chris has been really, really nice to Leo, our Golden Retriever puppy, & to us. We saw new skills & improvements in Leo after the first session & he has continued to learn more & improve with each session. Chris asks for email updates each night, so she knows what is working & what is not.  If one technique is not working, she will try another, until she finds what works best for Leo. She is teaching us how to teach Leo to be the good boy he wants to be. She is warm & loving to Leo & he is very Happy to spend time with her. Most of the time Chris has the different collars, leashes, toys, & treats, that she wants to try out, making it easy to see what will work right away. She has gone out of her way to shop & bring me what she did not have, or what I needed more of. She has been flexible & easy to work with. Her love for animals shines through.

We cannot say enough nice things about Chris & the great job she is doing.

Thank you, Chris!"

"Jake is our adorable, lovable 16-month-old Golden Retriever.  He was a pretty perfect young puppy, flew through obedience school and was delightful to have with us.  Then he turned into a "teenager" and developed selective deafness.  We tried every trick learned from obedience school.  Then in desperation we called Chris.

From that first visit, I knew we'd found just the right person to teach me how to best teach Jake.  Chris spent time with him, learning his personality and how he'd best learn.  We had 2 big leaning needs.  Jake's need to play with other dogs and people was much stronger than his need to respond to us!  He didn't seem to grasp that other humans did not appreciate his jumping up to lick their nose!  And he would not come to us when called if he had something better to do.

Chris tried lots of methods and was so patient and positive.  She wouldn't give up (nor let me give up).  He now can walk the beach with no leash, comes when called, and is so much better about not sharing his doggie kisses with everyone!  We still have work to do, but now I have the skills to help Jake be the good boy he really wants to be.

And Jake really thanks Chris for leaning the best treats for him!  He loves those chicken dogs!!

Thanks, Chris, for helping us have a healthy, happy, polite Golden!"

Chris,

Jim and I want to thank you for all you have done to train our stubborn silky terrier, Chauncy.  We had done everything we had read in books, other training @ PetSmart, and all we knew from our two previous silkies - all to no avail.  He has responded to your training like no other.  It is obvious that you are a more than dedicated trainer, and we really appreciate your daily concerns for Chauncy's training improvement.  Thanks for all your help!

"I am very happy with the training Wally and Willy have received. I think your love of dogs is evident to anyone who watches you with them, and the dogs seem to feel it, too. Your interest and involvement go beyond what most other trainers would do. My dogs are responding, and I'm hopeful that sometime in the not too distant future they'll be well-behaved, canine citizens."

"We are very happy that we found Chris to train my mother’s dog, Max.  Max was aggressive toward strangers and especially toward other dogs.  Walking him on a leash was a chore because he pulled so hard.  My mother is 87 years old and visually impaired.  Max is a wonderful companion for her, but was a handful.  Our vet recommended that we call Chris and we’re glad we did.  Max is much calmer now; he doesn’t scare people who come to visit and it’s much easier to walk him on a leash.  He is still aggressive toward other dogs on occasion, but not as often and his reaction is much more subdued.  Chris is continuing to work with him and we expect that in a few more sessions she can help him completely overcome any aggressive behavior.

 Chris is a kind and effective trainer.  Max loves her and we feel like she’s a friend.  Her prices are very reasonable and she is flexible and accommodating when scheduling visits.  We enjoy working with Chris to train our little mutt.  She has made a major difference in his manners."

"Chris worked with my golden retriever Lilah to improve her behavior on the beach. Lilah now comes to me every time I call even with the distractions of other dogs and people. Her entire demeanor has changed with me being her focus.

Delilah stayed with Chris @ her home for 1 week over New Years. Lilah received a lot more individual attention from Chris than she would at the kennel and the accommodations were great. I would not hesitate to leave Lilah with Chris at any time. Lilah loves her!

I'm really glad I discovered you Chris...Lilah and I are very lucky."

Because of your skill, professionalism, and love they (We) will be able to enjoy each other more than ever. I am constantly praising you to all our friends and fellow dog lovers. You are truly the “DOG WHISPERER” of Hilton Head and the Low Country.

"What do you do with a shelter dog you've just adopted and you
haven't had a dog in your home for 33 years?  You call Chris @red-beau.
 
Milo came into our life on September 12, 2007.  A black lab mix whose age was around a year.   Mike and I soon learned that he wasn't  house broken, pulled on a leash, hated his crate, and needed to learn basic commands.
 
With help from Chris, Milo now rings a bell at our front door when he needs to go out.  We never thought that would be possible when Chris first explained what she wanted Milo and us to do. But she knew her stuff!  It is also fun to go for a walk and Milo now walks off leash.  We are also the talk of the neighborhood when Milo jogs along side of our bikes while on a leash.  This is a great way to exercise a high energy dog.  His biggest obstacle to overcome was staying home alone.  After breaking two teeth trying to get out of his crate, we decided that crating was no longer an option.  Chris had us purchase Comfort Zone to spray on his bandana and leave out many activities for him to enjoy.  We have had great success and can now leave Milo home alone without fear of him ruining the house or hurting himself.
 
Thank you Chris for giving Milo and us the skills we needed.  We now have a "GREAT DOG" because of your help."

"Your training skills have resulted in my being able to take Katie (13 month old Weimaraner) for a two and half mile run on the beach every morning.  She is totally free and under voice command and loves every minute of her run. She will “stay by me” whenever a runner approaches or a dog comes to say hello and will not leave my side.  She has the freedom to roam the dunes or walk the water’s edge, but when I call “Katie”, she comes running to me.  We do this walk in 45 minutes.  None of this would have been possible without you, a professional trainer.  Firmly yet lovingly, you trained her through reward and not punishment and you never hurried the process.  

I learned so much from you, Chris, and because of your special talent, Katie and I can enjoy our sunrise walks on beautiful Hilton Head Island every day. Thank you!"

"Need help introducing at mature cat into a house with a two year old female Boxer?  Call Chris at Red-Beau.
 
My dog was only interested in sniffing the cat (well possibly more) but when she got close, the male cat would swipe at her face leaving bloody scratches.  I was concerned my dog would loose an eye before she learned her lesson.
 
Chris and her unbelievable patience and understanding of dogs and cats did a great job.  I would highly recommend her for help of any kind with either a dog, cat, or both.  Mulligan (the cat) will now actually sleep next to Phoebe (the boxer).  Last night Mulligan licked Phoebe's ear.  I almost cried it was so sweet and such a big step."

“Our names as Zack and Lexie Pattison.  We are 15 month old papillons.  However, our parents got us when we were 11 months old.  They fell in love with us immediately.  Therefore, allowing us to run wild until we met Miss Chris.  She loved us immediately too, but taught us to calm down and enjoy life more.    In just 2 weeks, we learned more than Miss Chris and our parents ever expected. 

We learned sit, down, come, place and walking beside our parents on our leashes.  It is so much fun to walk beside our parents instead of pulling them all over the place.  Thanks Miss Chris.  We hope to see you next spring for more lessons.  You’re the greatest!!!”

“I wanted you to know how pleased and impressed I am with your training of my pups (and me).  You gave me the tools to raise two delightful pups.  The tools enabled me to reinforce the training after you were finished.  The bell ringing for potties is a great addition to the housebreaking.  Both of the pups use it with regularity and it alerts me when I’m in another part of the house.  Your off leash training gave me the courage to take them out and I can’t tell you how much fun it is for them and for me!

You were always available to come and help with relapses and you were just an e-mail or phone call away when I needed you.  Thank you for showing me how to have such happy and well trained pups.  All of my friends tell me how well behaved they are.  I look forward to coming home to them every day.

Because of your agility training I just purchased an agility starter set and when the weather cools off we will set it up in the yard and have a blast.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“When I adopted Abby (a petite beagle) back in November, I was told she was trained in the basic commands, but she was not. I immediately asked around about a good dog trainer on the island and Chris's name came up several times and she came highly recommended. Chris was able to return my call and set up an initial consult in a matter of days. She also provided me with a plethora of literature on training to help me decide what I wanted to focus on. I told her I had tried and tried but could not get Abby to 'sit' on command. Within a few minutes of our first session, Chris had Abby sitting - and Abby couldn't sit enough. She helped me to understand how a dog thinks and understand why certain methods work and certain methods don't. Not only was my puppy getting an education but I was as well. Over several months, Chris helped Abby and I to bond through basic obedience. Beagles are known for straying to follow a scent but with Chris's training, I was able to take Abby on the beach  and on hikes without a leash and get her to come back to me whenever I called. Chris also introduced Abby and I to agility training, which my little pup loves. My only regret is that we had to move away - otherwise we'd still be working with Chris. Chris clearly loves dogs and is very knowledgeable when it comes to training. Thanks to her tips and willingness to educate owners, I've been able to help other friends with small obedience issues. Finally, Chris's prices are very reasonable and she works very hard to get the results you're looking for. She cares about you as a person, and your special relationship with your dog, not just as clients which is rare in this day and age. I would absolutely recommend Chris and Red-Beau to anyone looking to understand their dog better, and improve that special bond through obedience training.”

“All I can say is Sadie adores you.  You have a natural way with dogs and they completely respond to you. You are happy and loving and at the same time matter of fact and your expectations seem clear to the doggies. 

 

Sadie is doing well at the beach and on our walks.  The only problems I am having is when there are so many dogs and I call her and she is just overwhelmed.  I see her looking around for me with kind of a frantic look in her eyes but there are just too many distractions or confusion and she doesn't always respond to the correction.  I think she actually does better in most situations off leash.  She is happy and can explore and we can enjoy her freedom.  Is there a holster type thing for the remote?  I would be interested in purchasing one if there is.  There are just too many things to hold at the beach. 

 

Our experience with you has been just great and we would recommend you highly.  Thanks for everything.”

“My female golden retriever Scout--a rescue with her own personal history-- is a feisty 4-year old who loves to chase anything that moves.  As such she is a handful walking along our beach road at Haig Point where deer and bunnies can dart without warning from the marsh grass right in front of us.  Chris worked with us on this problem convincing me that Scout could be trained to walk properly without my arm being torn out of the socket.  Now when walking I try to spot the wildlife before Scout and tell her to "Good walk, good walk, good Scout".  She may huff and puff but does stay by my side.  She has really become a much better behaved dog and is still a sweetie with a great spirit.”

“We adopted Miles from Hilton Head Humane Association when he was 8 weeks old. When he started getting old enough and we tried training him on a leash I found out I had a very smart and head strong dog who wanted to walk himself and eat his leash. We called Chris and with in weeks he was walking very well on a leash, staying with us, sitting and laying down. Miles loved her. She taught us how to have a behaved, happy dog that we could take places with us. Her belief that you want your dog to do things because he wants to do them for you rather then because he was scared let me know she was my “ dog whisperer” .  I have actually had people stop and ask me how I make my dog come back to me when I call him.  Simple Chris Booth. Miles being the head strong dog he was had to be good at recalls and with Chris’s help he has really mastered that.  Even in his teenage years right now he still wants to learn. I can’t thank Chris enough for everything she has done for us and Miles even keeping him for us when we go out of town and letting Trooper help with Miles on occasions.  It is nice to know that Miles, a very important member of our family, can go out with us, travel with us and be a happy dog.”

Thank you Chris.

“I have had dogs all my life and last January my husband and I adopted the most beautiful Great Perineese dog from the Hilton Head Humane society.  He was only ten weeks old, and among his adoption papers was a coupon for one free training lesson from Chris. We called her and have never regretted that phone call.  We believe that she is and amazing person who has such a passion for animals, and never have I ever experienced a total communication from her to my dog Rolex.  Now remember that this is a ten week olds puppy who completely responded to her every command.  Due to an illness, she has trained and certified my dog to be a medical dog.  We can never thank her enough, and when Rolex is 18 months old, her will be back training with her again. Right now he is on vacation with us in Michigan , and just enjoying everyday life, but he responds so well and we take him into restaurants, hotels, and shopping centers and everywhere we go, so just with only four months of training with Chris, he is the best companion and medically helps me get around.

Gold Bless you Chris.”

“Thanks for your expertise, patience and all the constructive suggestions you provided while training Rudy.  He is doing so well with sit, down, stay, come and place.  The treats you mentioned for rewarding him and occupying his time have worked out nicely.  It is great being able to modify his behavior in a positive way. Rudy loves the games you taught us that reinforce the commands he's learned.  You made training fun for all of us.

We've had him with us many times at out door eateries and he is well behaved.  You'd be very proud of him.  He is still very much a pup, but thanks to you, he's a real charmer.  Everyone falls in love with him, except perhaps, Rusty, our cat.  But there are no worries there - yes, they fight, but they snuggle and play together also.

So, thank you again.  You're the best.  Just ask Rudy; he'll tell you. ;-)

"We were very pleased with our services from Chris Booth.  From our experiences

with Chris and the dogs, both ours and hers,  she is extremely knowledgeable

about the behavior of dogs and how to modify their behavior in the direction

that you prefer.  My husband and I were both "nervous" about the "growly"

behavior that our Cairn Terrier sometimes exhibits, and Chris was very helpful in

helping us gain our confidence to handle such behavior. In addition, she is

very fair with her business practices, fair with her pricing (evaluates your

dog to determine if she is able to help you), always on time, pleasant,

and a person that I have recommended to any of my friends that were having

difficulties with their dogs.  I have no criticism of Chris and would not hesitate

to recommend her at any time or to call her again when a problem arose

with our own dog."

Chris is a natural teacher and extremely patient. My husband and I are both happier and more confident because of her help.

"We spend our winters in Hilton Head and this past year we brought our new Dalmatian puppy, Razza, with us.  We were lucky to find Chris to help us with the typical young dog problems and to work the agility obstacles.  Razza was so excited to arrive at Chris’s home each week and do agility.  Chris not only helped Razza learn sequences on the obstacles, but she also taught Jean to give commands in a timely manner.  When we returned to our Pennsylvania home, everyone at Razza’s dog school noticed her improvement in agility.  This coming year, we are looking forward to our return to Hilton Head.  We plan to work with Chris to teach Razza recall on the beach and to continue agility training.

 It has been wonderful to work with Chris and we know that there is not a dog behavior she cannot address.  Hilton Head is lucky to have such an accomplished trainer."

"Red-Beau dog training (Chris Booth) has helped us tremendously with all of our doggies.  Starting with our lab Chianti, then our golden Jake and now our Min Pin Roki, Chris is always willing to help.  We have not started training with our newest edition Bentley (a Cavalier King Charles) but we may have to call Chris soon.  Its amazing how the dogs know when Chris comes to our house that she means business and they immediately go into their "training mode".  We are always amazed at Chris's energy with the dogs and how well she handles them.  Red-Beau is the way to go if you need some obedience training as we did.  Training is an ongoing thing with our dogs and we must always remember that you can teach an old dog new tricks!  We also love how Chris stays in touch via email and lets us know about local activities in our area."

Her separation anxiety issues are still a problem but only when I have to leave town or be away from her for a long period of time. We're still working on her pee pee accidents but they are much fewer and farther between than when I first adopted her. She needs a companion and a yard, which I cannot provide at the present time. Thank you so much for all that you've done for us and for being there constantly for me. You're a wonderful person and have such a gift for dealing with animals. May God Bless you always.”

“Having chosen to have four legged children rather than the regular variety, Richard and i have experienced a wide variety of dog trainers over the last 40 years....without a doubt, Chris is the best....she understands the canine mind, and is actually a dog whisperer....they react to her immediately....and "get it" so quickly.....we would have no one else work with our kids !!”

“Thank you so much for putting balance back into our lives.  When we adopted Skibo (our Cocker Spaniel) from the Beaufort Humane Assn, who would have thought our world would not be bliss.  Our CUTE Cocker Spaniel is very protective and likes to nip.  We’ll Chris you helped us manage the problem so well we don’t feel like it is an “issue” any longer.   In addition our Skibo loves to stay in your boarding facility.  You’ve made it so homey that he does not even miss us while we are away.  What a great job all the way around!!!”

"My wife and I have two Boston Terriers (Katie and Tucker).  We have had Katie since she was six weeks old, and she is now four.  Tucker, our male, is now six and joined our family about one and a half years ago after the death of my brother.  Tucker was initially  very territorial, unpredictable and sometimes aggressive  with strangers and even with us at times.  We primarily contacted Chris at Red-Beau to assist us in dealing with Tucker.  She first came to our home to meet Katie and Tucker and informed us that Tucker was potentially able to harm others and need to be taught that he is not the "boss" in spite of his sense of loss.  Chris confronted Tucker , even taking away from him some of is favorite toys to inform him that she, not he, was now the boss.  She also worked with Katie who is generally much more docile anyway.  We happily saw some positive changes even after their first full session! We engaged Chris for a total of five sessions during which she taught both dogs to respond to simple commands and to practice commands like "Place." As a result of these sessions,  the behavior of both our dogs has improved tremendously.  Many of our friends and neighbors have commented on the "new Tucker" that they are now pleased to visit!  We are very pleased with Chris Booth's techniques and highly recommend her services to anyone whose dogs demonstrate behavioral issues."
