Helping Multi Dog Households Live Harmoniously!

Adding another dog to your home sounded like an amazing idea….until it wasn’t. That puppy you brought home imagining they’d be your dog’s best friend isn’t fitting in too well. Maybe your dogs are just a little hard to manage in daily life, amplifying each other’s problem behaviors like barking when the doorbell rings.  Perhaps there’s genuine chaos, as if you brought the whole dog park home instead of just one more dog. For others, conflicts between dogs in their home, even dog fights, are disrupting their lives and threatening to rip their household apart. Whatever the reason, I take your multi dog mayhem and set both dogs and people on a path to happy and harmonious living. Which leads me to my last client, the one who wants to avoid multi dog mayhem from ever starting in the first place by proactively planning a new introduction. All of you have found the exact right place for your dog training needs, welcome, you’ll like it here.

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!”

Katie is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful — and is an excellent teacher! She also never makes you feel guilty or at fault for issues that you are working through with your pups. I wish that everyone considering adopting a second dog would first take Katie’s online course, to properly prepare for becoming a successful multi-dog household! We came to Katie because our two dogs (who had lived together for 8 months, and been acquainted nearly a year) were having issues, and Katie’s training has taught us so much, and helped everyone feel safe and secure. One of our pups is reactive and highly anxious, and Katie has been phenomenal on helping us working with his behaviours. I would recommend Katie to anyone, regardless of where you live — we live in Canada and have weekly virtual training sessions!
