About the Trainer: Kara is most passionate about helping dogs with reactivity, anxiety, impulse control issues and drive. She also has a special spot in her heart for rescue dogs and solving dog-cat relationship issues. Click here to read more about Kara.

About the Sessions:

Any unused sessions can be refunded within 6 months of purchase (Used sessions are charged at the regular rate. Click here for our cancellation/change policy.)

After you register for a session, you will complete a comprehensive history form online for Kara to read before the session. That way, she can get right to work helping you and your dog have a better future, rather than spending the whole time learning about your dog’s past. This saves you time and money. During the session, your trainer will ask you some additional questions during the first portion to get a complete picture of your dog’s issue(s). After that, she will teach you how to use the most appropriate, modern, dog-friendly techniques, based on what is the best fit for your dog and your family. She will also give you a written follow-up email to review the topics covered during the session.

When you register, your confirmation email will also include login information, so that you can log in to change your schedule.
