Sure, we want to pet all the dogs, but do they want to interact with us in that way? See what the dog has to say about it before you touch or loom over them.

“[Positive] punishment can be very reinforcing for the punisher. The learner’s immediate reaction to the punishment (cessation of unwanted behavior) reinforces the trainer’s behavior [and] the act of punishing can quickly become a habit.” ~Karen Pryor

“Karen is an encourager. She has amazing expertise, is very calm, reads things well, is patient, and really nurtures human-canine relationships.”

E.A., Kapowsin, WA

Karen is helping us understand and work through our puppy’s anxiety and resource guarding. She possesses a calm confidence and vast knowledge about all things canine and gave us hope that our puppy can become a calm and happy adult. We highly recommend Karen to anyone who has a dog, no matter what age or stage of life.

Karen is AMAZING, and we trust her completely! Our dog loves her and has come so far with her. We will continue to work with Karen–she is simply the best!
