Hi my name is Karen. I have been working with dogs for 5 years now. I have two dogs of my own. Kylo Ren and Rae, and yes! The force is strong with those two. Kylo Ren is a 5 year old rescue who is 18 different breeds. Yes, 18 lovely reasons why we began our then journey in training to my now passion for dogs. Rae is a 3 year old chocolate lab who has worked hard by my side as my service dog. Both of which I trained myself. Kylo and I have worked hard over the years to set and crush training goals and as a result of his hard work and long journey we have managed to find our love for his now favorite sport in Urban locating. He is set to trial in February for his level II title. Rae is jack of all trades. When she is not working as my service dog or as my demo dog, she enjoys dock diving, fly ball and her ball. My passion for the well being of my dogs has driven me to learn all things K9. In the recent years I have worked with mentors around the US both virtually and in person to expand my knowledge on dog training, training tools, dog nutrition and much more! My recent certifications include courses ranging from CPR courses, dog nutrition and currently working on getting certified as a AKC CGC evaluator. My goal as a dog trainer is to continue to get educated in all aspects of dog training so that I can teach my clients to not only train their dog but to create that lifestyle of enrichment, clear communication, health, proper outlets and overall a life long relationship with their dog. I look forward to helping you set and crush your goals! (edited)
Step 1: Assessment
Our behaviorist works with you to determine why behaviors are happening and what we’re going to do to help resolve the problem. They’ll meet with you and your dog, conduct a detailed interview about your dog, assess your dog’s behavior and clarify your training goals.
Step 2: Action Plan
Following the assessment, our behaviorist will develop a customized plan to effectively train and/or modify problem behaviors. They’ll also recommend which of our programs is the best fit for your dog: our In-Home Training program, where we work with you and your dog in the privacy of your own home, or our Board & Train program, an immersive course during which your dog lives with our trainer for anywhere from three to eight weeks.
