Ready for real training?

Whether we’re your first choice or a last resort, Koru K9 will ensure that your canine companion is the perfect addition to your pack.

Natalie has been training dogs and working with a wide range of critters professionally since high school.  Originally a Northern California native, Natalie interned and eventually worked for a dog training facility in Chico as the Training Center Coordinator. In 2005, Natalie earned her certification as a Registered Veterinary Assistant. In 2011, she graduated from Sierra Nevada University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and a minor in Psychology. Her professional animal training career has included working with everything from tigers to tortoises, but dogs have always played a pivotal role in her life.  In 2016, Natalie began working as a Dog Trainer for GET RATTLED which conducts Rattlesnake aversion training clinics for dogs all over the country. Through experience with her and her husband’s beloved dog, Jack the Lab x Gorilla mystery breed, Natalie has acquired a devoted passion for Balanced Dog Training and the high quality of life it can bring even the most reactive dog. Natalie, her husband, dog, cat, Flemish giant rabbits, horses and reptiles now live on the Oregon Coast in Lincoln County. She is thrilled to be able to represent Koru K9 and bring her experience to the area.
