Sharing a post courtesy of Reisner Veterinary Behavior Services. Another sad and completely preventable case of a child mistreating a dog and the dog biting the kid’s face.

Parents, PLEASE teach your kids to be responsible and safe around animals! There are excellent resources for this, such as Doggone Safe and TheFamilyDog.com Family Program.

“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. H.O., Lakewood, WA

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! K.M., Lake Tapps, WA
