Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hi all! My name is Kathryn and I am a professional dog trainer located in Ashburn, VA. I am Animal Behavior College (ABCDT) certified, and I have five years of experience working with dogs of all breeds and sizes. My primary focus when training a dog is to teach the owners how to best work with their pup in order to achieve their training goals, even after I leave. I firmly believe that having a strong and healthy bond with your dog is one of the most rewarding relationships you can have in your lifetime. My dog is my best friend, and has changed my life in the most positive way! I want my customers to be able to share the same joy as I do with my dog, with theirs. Texting is the best way to reach me, this app tends to glitch with messages on my phone. Voice calls are by scheduled appointments only. 7036385985 I look forward to working with you and your pup(s)! Kathryn Anwyll ABCDT Please note: ***I do NOT travel out of Virginia or offer board and train programs, and no more than 15miles from Ashburn, and there are NO REFUNDS on unused or cancelled appointments***

Kathryn is calm, professional and amazing with our dog and very clear in explaining to us what we need to do to accomplish our training goals. I highly recommend her.

Dog Training

Kathryn isn’t the only dog trainer I’ve ever worked with, but she is ABSOLUTELY the best. I love the psychology behind her training and it is very easy for the dog and people to pick up.

Dog Training

My family feels very fortunate to have connected with Kathryn! I think Kathryn is a dog whisperer. Our pup instantly took to Kathryn and she taught us so much in our first meeting. We all feel much better equipped and at ease with training our dog. Kathryn only uses positive reinforcement and is a really great listener and trainer. We signed up for more advanced training in the coming weeks and know we are finally getting the help we need to ensure our pup is well-trained and adjusted.

Dog Training

My family was very happy with Katherine as our dog trainer! She is much more affordable then most trainers in the area. We discussed our dogs behavior with her, and she gave us lots of methods to help curb his bad behaviors. The value of having a specialist analyze our dogs specific issues is something we were missing when reading a training book or doing group training. It is well worth the price to get a dog trainer like Katherine if your dog has stubborn habits that you can't find a solution to. We have finally gotten my dog to start walking past other dogs without snarling by using Katherine's tips. He is also getting better with strangers coming to the door and into the house. Thank you for all your help, Katherine!

Kathryn continues to work with me and my EXTREMELY large dog. Her step by step process really helps me to understand what I need to be doing to help my dog be the best he can be. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any training issues you may have.

FAQs

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

    Since Thumbtack has changed their platform I'd just like to add answers to commonly asked questions: Prices are $100/hr or $270 for a three lesson basic puppy/dog obedience package (each lesson is an hour). For Aggressive behavior modification the price is $150/hr or $405 for a 3-lesson package. All prices are subject to change based on your location (out of area surcharge may be added). For any scheduling or availability questions please text my cell number located in my profile. I only offer in-home (your home) lessons, I do not do group lessons or board and train options.

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

    I like to speak with the client about what types of training they are looking for, and give a general time frame for how long the training will take. I am upfront about cost and there will be no hidden fees or extra costs for multiple dogs or even having a session with outside dogs or family members. After, I will schedule a first session at their convenience and get started right away on training!

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

    ABC Certified Dog Trainer. 8+ years experience working with dogs. ABC Training mentor.
