About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Because we have class Instructors who are all experienced in the show fields in which they teach; they have all done competition and titled dogs, showing that our techniques WORK when it comes to training a puppy or dog. No other Club or private trainer has that in our geographical area.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

We love seeing people go out and take what we've taught them and begin earning titles on their dogs; we also really enjoy seeing people take their dogs into the community to do therapy dog work and thus enrich the lives of countless others. Its ALL important. If people take what we teach them and keep working with their dog, they will be pleased and satisfied with the results. We've had many success stories over the years and have many Club members [current and past] who are showing/titling dogs after being properly instructed by SOABDC. That's awesome!

    Southern Ohio All-Breed Dog Club is an outstanding organization, where people who love dogs can meet and work on training their companions to be the best dogs they can be.

    I have loved working with KathiJo. She is very knowledgeable and willing to talk you through training techniques and trouble spots. She has been a great help in working with my dog. She always goes the extra mile to help.

    Kathi is not only a devoted club member, she is very active in many different organizations involving dogs. She helps her community with dog safety presentations and is very active with her beloved therapy dog, Beck.

    I have worked with Kathi in her capacity as a 4 -H Volunteer working with youth. I have also observed her and her service animals on a personal basis and at various community functions over the past several years. Her dedication to provide excellent service as well as educate youth and adults on the care and training of dogs/service animals is exemplary. Her service animals provide a plus to our community as well as her teachings. She is always available to help. She is a hard worker, dependable, dedicated, and just plain awesome in her work with these animals and what she gives to the community. I would like to see more folks pursuing the field as enthusiastic as Kathi and her beloved animals.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We're always getting involved with other AKC and/or UKC related projects to stay up on any rules/regulations changes. We also continue to do competition to keep our methods effective. Different things work for different dogs at times, so we have more than one way to teach many things for dogs.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
There was no other Club or group in this geographical area where people could come together and learn to train/socialize dogs. So, we decided to form one. SOABDC has been here ever since, and is open to pure & mixed breeds both.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Well Organized Puppy and Dog Training Classes [Scheduled Twice A Year, offered in Spring and Fall] AKC Canine Good Citizen Testing AKC Community Canine Testing Therapy Dog Testing with Therapy Dogs International, Inc. Dog and Puppy Socialization Opportunities Community Involvement including therapy dog work, parade participation, so forth
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A lot of people can claim to be a 'professional dog trainer', but have no REAL substance to back that up-it takes more than being able to teach a dog to 'sit' and 'down'. They should have something to prove their methods work and be involved in some sort of competition earning/winning titles, etc. Those are the people we would prefer because if it works in the show/trial competition ring, then it definitely works for everyday life as well. This doesn't mean you have to do competition with your dog-it simply means methods that earn titles at shows will DEFINITELY work with training the family pet at home.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That we are indeed here and offer a superb opportunity for owners and their canine best friends to get more involved with one another. We also support our local 4H group Alpha Pups 4H Dog Club, which is a great opportunity for kids to become involved with their dogs-family dogs work just fine for 4H project dogs.
