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

KarenĀ 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.
