Behavior-based, positive reinforcement dog training for people who want to unlock the most fun and joyful qualities in your canine companion.

I am a certified, experienced, and vet recommended trainer offering private in person and online programs.  We can do this! 

“Kim educated, taught, and trained all of us.  Best thing we did for our family…and a joy living with our dog.”



Confused and frustrated owners can improve their dog’s behavior with a training program.  Obedience cues form a foundation, and reliability happens when these are effectively applied to daily routines.  I can help you do this.



Dogs and their humans benefit from environmental enrichment and mental stimulation.  Asking obedience cues of your dog is part of this plan.  Enrichment activities develop chewing preferences, provide alone time occupation, and offset boredom.  Tip:  Every dog should have a snuffle mat.


Behavior management is a key component in puppy training and behavior modification programs.  We all know that practice makes perfect!  Management strategies prevent continued rehearsal and reinforcement of undesirable behaviors.  I can devise a management plan that works for you.
