Do you have a problem pooch?
Are you seeing some new behaviors as your pup gets older?
Or are you simply looking to get a head start with training your new puppy?
I am here to help!
My name is Kathryn, and I am an Animal Behavior College (ABC) Certified Dog Trainer (CDT) located in McLean, VA. From puppy 101, to aggressive behavior modification, I can help you train your perfect pooch! I travel to your home in order to address training where you and your dog are most comfortable. In addition, this allows us to work directly on the behaviors you are looking to change.
"Kathryn wasted no time in getting started with our new rescue. She has excellent understanding of dogs and how to make them happy, responsive and respectful."-Kelly, Reston
"Kathryn was everything we were looking for in a trainer, and more. Our dog now walks really nicely on a leash, lays on his bed instead of begging while we eat, and in general has learned to focus on us, not everything else around him. Most importantly, she gave us the tools and insights to be able to communicate better with him - I think she trained us as much as she trained him! She was incredibly responsive to questions and was willing to work us unexpectedly into her schedule when we were struggling to work with him effectively one week. I can't recommend Kathryn more - we'll definitely be working with her in the future!"-Christina, Fairfax

If you would like to reach out by phone, please make sure to leave me a detailed message about what you are looking for. If you do not leave a message, I will not call back, as this is a business phone number and I get lots of spam calls.
I offer free phone consults BUT, you do need to schedule a time for a consult ahead of time.
Texting is my preferred communication method, and I will answer all texts as soon as possible. I do not text when I am in a lesson or when I am driving.
