After adopting a stray, we knew we needed someone to help us work out some of his fear-based behaviors. I was so lucky that a friend recommended Kate!
Kate is impressively qualified and so kind. Moo loved her right away, and we saw her work her magic with him from the second she walked in the door! She always explains the motivation behind a dog’s troubled/troubling behaviors and is careful not to recommend anything that could worsen a dog’s anxiety.
By the time she leaves at the end of a session, we feel comfortable knowing what our next steps are in terms of training, and are a lot more at ease! Kate shows up extremely prepared and leaves us with really useful materials that clearly outline our new training plans, and she follows up with detailed session notes. She’s so professional and organized. I wish I’d known about her sooner — my last dog had issues with aggression, and I know Kate could have helped.
Kate is a really extraordinary resource, and has done a lot for us in terms of making sure our dog gets the happy, healthy life he deserves. I’d recommend her without reservation!
