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 one cat. I offer both private in-home custom training as well as group classes and workshops. 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!
I believe ongoing learning and continuing education is also important for me as a trainer so that I can continue to help you to the best of my ability. I'm a current member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
