About Kim
II have loved animals all my love and feel a connection to dogs in particular.   I have been training dogs professional for 15 years and have been active in the rescue/shelter world for just as long. My job is to teach people how to work with their dogs and teach them "dog languange."  On the flip side, I become the student when I attend workshops and seminars and continue to learn as the field of animal behaior continues to evolve.  I teach owners how to work with their dogs in a positive, fear-free environment and enhance the bond with their dog through consistent feedback and reinforcement.  

Professionally, I am a member of Force Free Trainers of Wisconsin and the Pet Professional Guild, an AKC STAR Puppy and Canine Good Citizen evaluator and a training instructor for the Animal Behavior College and CATCH Canine Trainers Academy and have mentored several new trainers.  I am also a Dog Gone Safe presenter and love to teach people, especially children, how to be safe around dogs.   

I am a staunch advocate for the humane treatment of all animals and consult with many rescues and shelters in Wisconsin.   I served on the administrative rules committee for Act 90, the Wisconsin Dog Seller's Law, during 2010-2012.   I am the former Animal Care Manager/Operations Manager at Elmbrook Humane Society in Brookfield and the former director of the Dodge County Humane Society where I oversaw the construction new building.   After almost 20 years, I recently retired from Green Acres Boxer Rescue of WI. 



When not working with dogs, I enjoy reading books and attending seminars to advance my  training skills and animal knowledge.  I enjoy being outside and gardening.  I am owned by one Boxer, a sassy 2-year old female named Isabella.   I have many more furry friends waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. 

My Qualifications
I have been training dogs professional for over 15 years.   When I started this process, there was no formal training path for dog trainers.  Those of us with an interest started attending workshops and seminars by other trainers and read A LOT.    ​
Professional Member  - Pet Professional Guild
I am a professional member of the Pet Professional Guild which advocates force-free methods and provides execellent seminars and workshops for ongoing learning.  ​​​​​
Mentor Trainer
I am a mentor trainer for CATCH Canine Trainers and Animal Behavior College.  I love sharing my skills and knowledge with future dog trainers!  ​​​
