My name is Katie McKenzie, CPDT-KA and I have been training and solving behavior problems for over 9 years. My bachelors degree is in Animal Behavior and I have been certified by the Council for the Certification of Professional Dog Trainers, PetSmart and Petco. Currently I am working towards a second title, Certified Canine Behavior Consultant. I am an active evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen Title for the American Kennel Club. I temperament test all dogs that pass through my local shelter, in addition to designing training programs and modifying behavioral issues. My personal goal is to make sure that dogs in good homes STAY in their good homes. Too many dogs are abandoned or surrendered because of problem behaviors that can be easily fixed! I am passionate about dogs and I can help you improve your life with your dog!
Training Dog Lovers and Their Dogs
I started Dog Lovers Training in 2011 and my mission has always been: to help you get your dog to be the dog you want him/her to be. The end result should be to ensure your dog stays in your loving home by identifying and addressing any behavioral issues!
I train dogs with positive reinforcement. It's important to know your dog's strengths and weaknesses. I have trained my dogs to do therapy work, have basic manners, scentwork or just fun stuff. My star, Duncan, learned to pick up treats from the store shelf and put them in a shopping cart, push the cart, help unload at the register and take money to the cashier.
This video shows you a dog who is excited to do the things he is asked to do ! Training can be so much fun!!!

My dogs and I regularly visit a drug rehabilitation facility to socialize with and provide therapy to the patients. If any local facilities are interested in this service, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
