“During my first puppy training class, my resuce pup Wrangler decided to bark at everything and everyone as puppies often times do. Katie taught me how to positively reinforce him when he wasn’t barking and he quickly caught on. I instantly knew Katie was gold in the dog training world. She believes in rewarding the dogs for good behavior rather than punishing for bad behavior. After our first puppy training course with Katie was completed I saw a huge improvement in Wrangler’s behavior and knew I wanted to continue training with Katie. I decided that I wanted to do private lessons with Katie to focus on areas where Wrangler needed improvement. Katie, has a beautiful blend of playfulness, work, fun, and obedience mixed in with her training and all the dogs love her. In every instance when I couldn’t get Wrangler to comply she had an alternative suggestion that would work. She has a lot of tricks up her sleeve.  Instantly she had tools and knowledge on how to train Wrangler and just as he did in class, he reacted with good behavior instantly. Not only was Katie very informative, she was also patient, and fun to be around! Both Wrangler and I learned so much from Katie and always walked away happy! I highly recommend giving Katie a try, you won’t regret your decision. You will have a better behaved dog by the end of one session.”

“Katie has made a huge difference in our lives, and for our pups Duke and Rusty. We use the tools she has taught us every single day. Our pups now offer behaviors like sit, watch me, leave it, and down all the time. We are now able to eat at the dinner table and both of our dogs lie on their mats all on their own. I now reinforce good things when I see them happen, especially in new situations. People are always asking me how our dogs learned all of this, and I tell them about Katie. Dogs naturally pick up on Katie’s genuine energy, and if the humans pay attention, we learn with the dog. I am so thankful for “my” training, and I’m forever grateful for all Katie has done for us!”

“I recently sent my chi mix puppy for a board and train. I cannot say enough good things about Katie. She only uses positive reinforcement which is important to me. I’m sad she isn’t closer so I can work with her all the time! My pup went for one week and then after that another two weeks board and train. What a difference!! He comes immediately when called, goes to his place, sits, lays down and no longer is fearful around other dogs. She sent me daily videos and pictures of his progress which was amazing. She has a huge backyard with lots of space to play and even a pool! I’ll definitely be sending Spike there anytime I’m on vacation or just want some more training done. Katie is AMAZING!”
