About the Sessions:

If you do not see any sessions listed online, you can email Ken about his availability at to arrange a time. Please let him know what days and times work for you and what area of Seattle that you live in.

Please note the location column on the pull-down calendar above. If the session location is listed as Ahimsa, the session cannot be done off-site.

For off-site sessions, please make sure you are within the Primary BLACK LINE service area to book online without emailing Ken first. Appointments can be arranged in the  Extended GRAY LINE service area via email but additional travel fees will apply. After scheduling extended service area session(s) with Ken, please use this link to pay the Extended Service Area Travel Fee for each session.

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 Ken to read before the session. That way, he 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 in the first session. 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. If you need to reach Ken you can email him

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

We offer a Growly Dog class at Ahimsa in Seattle for aggression and reactivity to other dogs.  If your dog is reactive to humans and has bitten, you would need a private session with Wynona Karbo or Amber Hardin. Please call 206-364-4072 or email to help you find the best training option for your dog.
