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 and am certified in Pet CPR and First Aid through Animal Behavior College.
I've always loved animals and grew up on a farm surrounded by numerous dogs and cats. I am excited to be pursuing my dream of working with animals through dog training. There is nothing else I would rather be doing!
