My name is Karen, and I'm a Certified Dog Trainer.  I received my certification through Animal Behavior College.  I use positive, reward-based training to teach dogs and their people basic manners and behavior modification.  I believe that training should always be fun!  When positive and rewarding training methods are used, the relationship between the person and their dog is strengthened.

     I live in Denton, Texas, with my husband and three children, our German Shorthaired Pointer and two cats. I volunteer as a trainer with IDEA Service Dogs in Keller, TX, as well as our local animal shelter.  I'm also a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

     I believe every dog is different, and positive training should be customized for your dog's specific needs and level. I will work one-on-one with you and your dog to help you both learn how to understand each other and progress at a pace you're comfortable with. I love watching people and their dogs in that moment when something new "clicks" and comes together!
