Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: K9 Holistics is less of a dog training company, and more of a dog OWNER training company! In my experience as a trainer, I’ve found that training the owner is absolutely critical to the long-term success of a training program. In so many cases, dog owners are unintentionally contributing to behaviors they don’t want, or they don’t understand how to establish leadership and get their dog to pay attention to them. K9H methods fix these issues as we teach and empower dogs and their owners alike. We turn owners into leaders who understand, command and handle their dogs with ease and confidence. I love helping dog owners become dog masters! The transformation on both ends of the leash is incredible and I love being able to help people truly enjoy their relationship with their dog. If you've ever watched a pro dog trainer working with a dog, you probably noticed that the dog responds to them in such a way, it almost seems as if they have some kind of magical "dog-whispering" ability. Well, it's not magic - it's just skill and mastery! And it's something that any dog owner can learn with the right instruction. It's my passion to be able to offer my clients that kind of instruction, and watch them gain confidence and clarity in commanding their dogs.

Dog Training

It's only been one session, and less than 2 weeks, but I'm already seeing a change in my dog's behavior. She is slowly learning how to relax. The trainer provided me with 2 great evidence based articles on my dog's specific behavior issues and demonstrated techniques for me to practice in my own environment. Absolutely recommended!

Thanks, Tesa! It was a pleasure working with you and Lady.

Dog Training

Christine is awesome! She did a great job helping us train our 10 week old Brittany Spaniel puppy, Lola. She listened to what we wanted to work on each week and incorporated it into our training session. Rather than training your dog for you, Christine teaches you what to do so your dog will listen and follow your directions. She uses positive reinforcement so your dog is always happy. Lola is our pet but also a hunting dog every now and then. So, Christine learned how to train her for hunting purposes. She is incredibly knowledgeable and made the training sessions easy to understand, fun and enjoyable for Lola and us. She also followed up with additional information and tips after each session. Christine has also helped us during the day by coming over and taking Lola for walks. We always get cute pictures and an update when she leaves on how the walk went. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking for training, walking or sitting. We love Christine and so does Lola!

Dog Training

Before we started training, Calypso was unruly, overly excited about everything, and still having accidents in the house. Now she is doing great on walks, no longer having accidents, and is getting her excitement under control. We are even able to leave her out of her crate while we are gone. She continues to improve every day! Christine was great with not only teaching Calypso, but teaching me about how to handle different situations and how it may affect Calypso’s behavior. Christine is a pleasure to work with and makes training so much fun!

Dog Training

Christine is a FABULOUS trainer. Very efficient, proficient, knowledgeable and patient. We live a a small space with a standard poodle puppy that needed basic training. We had a specific problem of getting puppy into car which she solved in one hands-on session. Great value and results particularly if you follow her guidelines and practice. We started with 6 sessions and Rufus responded well, loved the sessions. Unfortunately as owners we might not have been as consistent as needed but Christine worked with our human limitations too! Highly recommend.

Thank you, Lyn. You and Rufus have made a ton of progress and I look forward to hearing your updates!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer two options for pricing: (A) pay-per-session or (B) purchase a program. The vast majority of my clients purchase a program because they like knowing exactly what results and benefits they will get out of training, and it affords them a discount off the per-session rate.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I offer a free phone or in-person consultation so that I can learn about the owner's goals for their dog and what they have tried so far. I also want to get a feel for how the dog is currently responding to his/her owner and identify where there are issues. We will discuss the dog's behavioral and medical history and the owner's concerns in detail. At that point, I will make a recommendation for which of our programs will be the best fit for the client and their dog, and design a customized training plan that fully addresses their needs and goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    The field of dog training is largely unregulated, meaning that anyone with a dog and a dream can technically call them self a trainer. That's why any trainer who is serious about their profession and their abilities will have some sort of certification or credentials - it's important to demonstrate to clients that you take your job seriously. I am Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). In order to receive this certification, I had to have at least 300 hours of dog training experience with clients, a professional recommendation, pass an extensive written exam and agree to abide by a strict code of ethics. In order to maintain my certification, I have to receive continuing education credits as well. The CCPDT has high standards for their trainers and promotes science-based training methods. I love to learn and read, so I'm always deepening my understanding of my craft. I read books, blogs, studies, watch videos, participate in forums and take classes and seminars online on a pretty much daily basis. You could say that I'm slightly obsessed ;-P
