About Kathy

"Dogs are better than man because they are true to their nature like all animals are; we are the insensitive brutes."

- St. Peter Damascene

I take a positive approach to dog training that's based on a deeper understanding of canine behavior. Iím here to help you communicate with your dog in order to stop bad habits and develop good behaviors.

Group training sessions encourage socialization and success.

Private lessons are also available for those unique sessions that require that one-on-one attention.

Positive dog training techniques are used and yet, I make sure I have a "trainers tool box" full of ideas time-tested and scientifically proven techniques that will give you and your dog confidence.
