    Helped me in my decision to adopt a particular dog by providing opinions, tips, and resources. Continued to provide books and opinions regarding any questions I had after adoption. Super personable

    Kayla did a great job working with my pup, Ollie. She worked with us to design a plan that satisfied all of our trainings goals, was flexible with scheduling and was very punctual. Our Thursday training sessions became a highlight for Ollie and we are all a little bummed that our training time is over (even though this ultimately meant we had success!). I'd definitely recommend working with Kayla to any of my friends.

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to do a quick survey prior to meeting, which gives me a chance to read over the owner's concerns and history with their pet. We then do a consultation, in which we'll start laying the foundation for our goals and processes. After that, we meet 2-8 times per month for training sessions. I set up a training plan and we do our best to follow it, but I'm also flexible in case of changing circumstances or fast/slow learning.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I was an assistant trainer at All Breed Rescue and Training and have attended International Association of Animal Behavior Consultant conferences. I have a degree in biology and a focus in animal behavior from Colorado College. I also worked at Denver Dumb Friends League on their behavior team as a behavioral technician.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I started as a student of biology and psychology, making money as a dogwalker. I started training the dogwalking clients in basic manners to make my job easier, and discovered that I LOVE training. Now, I'm a behavioral foster parent, work at a shelter in the behavior department, and spend lots of time training my dog, parrot, and cat!
