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!
