I helped my friend find this trainer for her dog that was required to have training sessions by animal control. She was extremely honest and up front about how much work the training requires especially from the owners side. That said, she has been extremely accommodating and working with my friends dog for a couple sessions now, and she is doing an amazing job. I have seen huge improvements already, and the dog and my friend seem sooooo much happier in their relationship and life altogether! Too bad I don’t live in California, because I would hire her to come work with me and my dog in a heartbeat.Apr 11, 2018Verified

I contacted Kim about our new rescue adoption, Keira, a husky/shepherd mix. Keira had some bad habits that needed to be resolved, as well as learning basic commands. In addition, we needed her socialized with our cats. I liked how Kim used a variety of methods in working with Keira--not just a "one size fits all" approach. She has extensive experience in working with GSD as well, so she provided a lot of insight into the "thinking" of this breed. We learned so much & Keira responded to the training. I would highly recommend Kim to others that want an individual approach to training their dog.May 29, 2017Verified

We had a private consultation prior to hiring her. She came to our home and assessed our two corgi's. She did a demo with how she trains with one of our dogs and we were pleased with the results. That was when we decided to go forward with hiring her.Mar 14, 2016Verified

Kim is an exceptional dog trainer. We had rescued an adult doberman and needed some guidance both at home and in public. Kim came to our home and completed a very in-depth assessment of not only our dogs behaviors (or lack there of), but my husband's and mine. She then began a very systematic and personal approach to training our dog. Kim went above and beyond and came to our home to work with our dog and some of our friends and housekeeper that our dog was not doing well with. She also provided us with the tools to work with our dog and bring out the best in her. We could not be happier with the results that we have seen after the training that Kim has provided. I would highly recommend Kim for your dog training needs.Jan 1, 2016Verified

Kim communicates well and is easy to follow. She keeps it simple, so you can remember the techniques that work with your dog.Mar 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer several different training packages and options. These includes private lesson packages, puppy sessions, problem solving sessions, a jump start program, board and train, plus more. I give military, senior citizen and rescue dog discounts.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If there are severe behavior issues, the first thing I like to do is provide my client with a free in-home evaluation. This gives me the chance to get to know the owner and learn more about their lifestyle with their dog, as well as their training goals. I also gather more detailed information about the dog and his/her behaviors as well as evaluate his/her temperament. I also demonstrate my training methods. From there, we can decide together, which of my training programs will best fit your needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?At age sixteen, I opened my first pet sitting business. At age eighteen, I attended my first dog training school while I worked full time as a veterinary technician. I went on to study canine behavior at the American College of Applied Science, and I have attended numerous other dog training schools, seminars and lectures over the years. I continue to expand my education, as dog training and behavior modification are always evolving.
