Karen has always had a love for animals and a particular interest in working with dogs. Her interest in becoming a Certified Professional Dog Trainer was inspired by one of her personal dogs and their behaviour issues over 10 years ago. She enjoys working in variety of avenues of training but specializes in reactivity, aggression & K9 Nose Work. She believes that you never stop learning in this industry and is always advancing her skills & knowledge to the most current science has to offer.

Karen believes in building a strong relationship and bond with your dog through structure, mutual respect and a lot of fun! Karen enjoys working with the human clients just as much as the dogs.
