Your personal trainer in your pocket
Online learning is fun and easy! We start with a 60-minute Zoom conversation where I learn more about you and your dog. In this meeting I want to hear about your goals and challenges so I can make an assessment of the situation, discuss management strategies, as well as next steps. After that we can begin your online training subscription plan. As a subscriber, you will receive from me weekly homework assignments, educational games, and personalized tips and guidance on how to train your dog. Anytime along the way you can send me videos, questions, voice and text messages

What My Clients Think
Kristine was fantastic. She took the time to learn about our family, dogs, and our goals. Kristine then developed an individualized plan and supported us every step of the way. Kristine is a caring and understanding trainer. I appreciated her sense of humor, helpful feedback, and her excellent communication skills.
Kristine is very patient, nonjudgmental, and compassionate (with dogs and their humans 😉).
Kristine and I had a video consult at a time when I had rehomed one of my dogs because I just didn’t think I could manage both of them. She was a great non-judgmental listener and gave me some great ideas for both training and managing the issues we were having. After our call I felt confident enough to get my dog back and now the pack is thriving.
Get daily support without having to commit to a strict schedule! With the online coaching program, we provide you with customized dog training homework that includes instructional video examples of exercises to practice directly with your dog. You commit to practicing regularly with your dog and sharing your practice videos with us 2 times per week so we can provide feedback. We will record a voice over video feedback for you to review which you then apply to your next couple practice sessions before submitting another round of videos. You are also able to ask questions directly through the app whenever you need to do so. The fee is $600/4 weeks and most people need 3-6 months of support. You can see an example of what that feedback might look like here: https://youtu.be/2QNSRhkYhfw Or check out Instagram for more: https://www.instagram.com/woofwisdom/
You and your dog will receive respectful and compassionate treatment from me. I am committed to providing transparent and honest information regarding outcomes, progress, and prognosis. However, it is unethical for any trainer to guarantee specific results. 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.
As an online trainer, I have the opportunity to assist clients from around the world. Regardless of your location, my services are accessible to anyone. I have built a solid clientele and receive referrals from both clients and veterinarians in various areas, including the Bay Area, CA, and South-Western Washington. Since all my services are conducted remotely, wherever you are you are able to receive the support you and your dog require.
I employ evidence-based, fear-free, and force-free training methods to ensure the well-being and happiness of your dog. I am committed to never using any techniques that could instill fear, cause harm, or coerce your dog. Your dog's welfare and comfort are my top priorities. If you would like to learn more about my training methods and approach, please feel free to reach out. I am more than happy to provide further information and address any questions or concerns you may have.
To secure your appointment time on my calendar and prevent it from being booked by another potential client, full payment is required. Please note that refunds are not provided for initial consultations.
However, if you need to cancel your appointment at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled consultation, the full amount of your consultation fee will be credited and remain on file for a period of 1 year. This credit can be utilized by you for a future appointment or gifted to a dog in need.
Additionally, should you require it, you have the flexibility to reschedule your initial consultation without any additional charges up to 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time.
These policies are in place to ensure fairness and to accommodate changes in scheduling while still providing quality service.
By enrolling in the monthly dog behavior coaching program, you can enjoy the benefits of a cost-effective solution compared to traditional in-home private lessons. Instead of paying for my time on an hourly basis, you'll have the advantage of more frequent access to a professional trainer for a flat monthly fee.
To ensure convenience and flexibility, I accept various payment methods, including all major credit cards, debit cards, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and ACH bank transfers.
