Meet Karin Linden,

Professional Dog Trainer



Karin goes by Auntie Cookie at work. Karin is highly educated having studied canine, human, avian, and reptile behavior.

She cares that you and your dog get the absolute best training experience.  It's her goal that y'all graduate feeling sure of yourselves.  Able to handle anything that crops up in the future.

Of course, she's going to miss you and your puppers tremendously, so feel free to text her anytime and ask questions.

Karin also believes in training for real-life results. That's why she's still offering training in her front yard.

It's worth noting that zoom training totally works. Karin has plenty of clients she's never met in real life who are totally stoked with the training they received virtually.

Training Methods

For the well being of puppies and dogs, and clients’ peace of mind, Karin uses only positive reinforcement training methods. Real-life results are best achieved when everyone—trainer, dog, and client—are relaxed and thus able to learn freely.

Karin is a member in good standing of the Pet Professional Guild, a professional development group dedicated to force-free training theory and implementation.

Karin continues her education weekly, reading scholarly articles, attending virtual classes through Natural Encounters Inc, Dr. Susan Friedman, and many other notable behavior professionals.

Karin can make a difference for you and your dog!
