What My Clients Think

Kristine has been such an asset in the training journey with my rescued staffy/pittie mix named Matilda. If you have a pitbull type dog, you know that the pressure is high to have a dog that is 100% perfectly behaved at all times. She knows so much about dog behavior and has helped me reach a greater understanding of my dog and what she needs.

The training with Kristine has been completely remote. I send her videos and she updates our plans and gives me feedback based on the videos and my questions. She is patient, kind, empathetic, and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to dog psychology. The training methods are all science and evidence based, and does not involve hurting or punishing the pups.

Kristine has been able to provide excellent practices and feedback based on detailed reviews of training videos I send her weekly. She has always been available and very well organized. She compassionate and has an excellent understanding of dog behavior and how they process information. Kristine has been the best trainer I have worked with

    Dogs are living beings, and their behavior is influenced by numerous factors, including environmental changes, medical conditions or discomfort, reinforcement history, human interactions, and genetics. It is important to recognize that behavior, whether in dogs or humans, is never completely predictable or consistent, as it fluctuates with circumstances.
