I went to Karen with our 1 year old bouncy working golden retriever. Being a working breed, my dog is very motivated by the environment and I needed help with building focus and engagement around distractions - especially other dogs! Karen has taught me (and my dog!) so much over the lessons we have had, and she gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to succeed. Karen is a wonderful, kind trainer, and really takes into consideration your unique situation, and always considers the dog’s needs and why they might be behaving in a certain way. Each lesson is followed up with extensive notes and links to resources which is really helpful and keeps you motivated between lessons. I would highly recommend booking some sessions in with Karen, my only wish is I had found her sooner!
