Helping Dogs and People Live Harmoniously

Wise Mind Canine uses mindful, effective, science based dog training for both ends of the leash. Positive reinforcement is the cornerstone of our work together. I believe the best dog training solutions come from the synergy of how we feel and what we know, the Wise Mind. Emotions matter here, yours and your dog’s. By taking a cognitive and emotional approach we can build strong relationships and robust trained skills. Through our collaboration you will learn to use your Wise Mind to prevent and solve problematic dog behaviors.  Along this path you will discover what harmonious living means for you both.

Katie is one of the best teachers I’ve ever known, and I’ve worked in international education for the past 15 years. I evaluate K-12 teachers, and I look for teachers who teach kids, not content. Katie is one of the rarest kinds of teachers. She teaches dogs, not commands. She is so invested in my dogs. She understands them deeply, what they need to learn to succeed, how to build healthy relationships between them, and how they best learn. I have 4 rescue dogs who all have past trauma, so not an easy situation, but Katie finds creative solutions to the most unique challenges. I was blown away by her comprehensive knowledge of dog training and learning theory. Her instruction is meticulous, focused and holistic. I’VE learned so much! Her love and understanding of dogs shines through everything she does. A consummate professional, she is responsive and real with me. She’s changed our family forever, for the better. Thank you, “Auntie Katie!”
