Introduction
I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) by the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers, a Mentor Trainer for Animal Behavior College, and a volunteer Dog Trainer for the Animal Care Centers of New York. I offer customized dog training and behavior management primarily using reward-based, force-free methods in the comfort of your own home or through remote learning (live video calls). I take pride in teaching Recall (reliable come-when-called), alternative behaviors (e.g. dog rushing to a dog bed when the doorbell rings instead of charging at the door and barking incessantly), and Potty Training. The goal is for YOU to learn what training is all about so that (after you work with me) you would be able to train other dogs you may have in the future without necessarily having to hire another dog trainer. Although training sessions are usually held about a week apart, once you sign up, you may contact me 24/7 for questions or concerns that simply cannot wait till our next session. That's certainly one thing that sets me apart from other trainers.

Karina has been amazing to work with. We've had no issues scheduling our training with her around our ridiculous schedules. We're unlearning all the bad training we learned in the past and she's been great at explaining why different methods are better than others, and how we can keep improving and retraining our older dog, while working with our newer puppy. One of the things we love is she doesn't time her classes, so it's as long as needed for us/the dogs to get it. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of working with her and highly recommend her to anyone else seeking training help!

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private lessons • Puppy training • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Karin is an excellent, knowledgeable, empathetic, and entertaining trainer who has made me excited about investing time and resources into working with my dog. I was really overwhelmed the first week of trying to manage my puppy all on my own without any support but — since we started working with Karin, I feel much more in control, equipped with tools and practices that actually work. I am now seeing the results of what she's taught us after a few weeks of consistency and practice. As a first-time dog owner, I so appreciate her friendliness and continuous support between our sessions; she is truly available 24/7 and always encourages me to keep in touch. She is always thorough in following up on questions from previous sessions and is clearly dedicated to this line of work. We feel very lucky to have found Karin and can't wait to book our next package with her!

Everything about Karin is awesome! She is so knowledgeable and really is an amazing dog trainer and human coach! We were so worried about our new puppy but after just one at-home session, we felt on top of the world with confidence (I highly recommend purchasing the whole in-person package). She spends so much time with you and really shows that she truly cares and loves what she does. I strongly recommend Karin for all dogs of any age. I’m still blown away and counting down the days until our next visit. THANK YOU!

Although we could not meet in person, Karin was great at explaining the process for getting my dog potty trained. She answered all of my questions and told me multiple times that I could call or text whenever and she would help me. Obviously she wants to get paid but it feels like she just loves helping pet owners with their needs. That's awesome!

Karin is extremely knowledgeable and available. Her expertise goes beyond the technicalities of dog training: she just has the right gut feeling, and most likely, she’s delt with a dog like yours or knows of one. I trusted he at “Hi!”
