About us

Kate has over 20 years of experience working with a variety of dog breeds. To deepen her knowledge she chose to become certified as a dog trainer by the Animal Behavior College that provided study and hands-on training for how dogs
think and learn.

Dog Training

No dog is inherently bad, but some exhibit unwanted behaviors like jumping, biting, and barking. Without a leader guiding proper behavior, dogs may assume the leadership role, causing stress.
Our program empowers owners with skills for positive reinforcement, fostering a harmonious family where both humans and dogs thrive.

Kate is a very versatile dog trainer. She has an upbeat attitude and excellent communication skills. You can tell she loves her work. I highly recommend Kate as a private trainer.

Dawn V. ABC Mentor/Trainer

Kate was fantastic to work with. She taught our dog to curb unwanted behavior and gain confidence from the first session. She was patient, helpful and very insightful. She shared many links and content with us to aid in our continued training. Highly recommended!

Jackie C.

Kate is wonderful, very thorough and extremely knowledgeable about all things “dog”. She helped us train our puppy and freely shares resources that reinforces what we learn between training sessions. A “high five” for Kate.
