We were struggling with learning how to best raise and train our male doberman puppy Cato. He was very independent, emotional, smart, and wasn't responding to our early efforts. Kara was a shining light in an uncertain time, and when we began working with her the improvements were undeniable. She has been a tireless resource for educating us and assessing the specific traits of our dog. Cato took a real liking to her immediately, and no wonder. Kara is extremely knowledgeable, caring, and enthusiastic. She endeavors to know each individual dog's motivations, skills, and areas to improve. Kara shows a great deal of creative thought, ambition, and focus when working with dogs of all breeds, skill levels, and behavioral needs. We are so thankful to have her work with us and Cato and look forward to continuing a long relationship with her in the future.
