Client Testimonial:

"Cathie has been very easy to talk to and has a plethora of knowledge about reactive dogs. She was very accommodating to our personal needs and answered questions in a clear manner. She has provided many learning resources about training and dog body language, as well as opportunities for us to practice our training.  She offers a semi-weekly reactive dog meet which is an excellent way to practice training in a controlled environment. It's free or by donation (to the local animal shelter) so I would recommend it to anyone seeking such opportunities. If you are looking for a trainer who uses only positive reinforcement and no averse tools or training methods, Cathie is the one for you!"
