Great trainer! Karin introduced me to clicker-training & the use of positive reinforcement training for rambunctious puppies.

Her methodology and professionalism made introducing new behaviors easy and straightforward. Karin's experience working with dogs of all ages and breeds - as well as working with young families - made her a great choice in my search for dog trainers. You'll find that in the world of dog trainers, there are many philosophies and approaches -- I recommend positive training techniques because of its humane approach and effectiveness in training. Would definitely recommend!
