We opted into a package of private lessons with her so that we could learn what we needed to continue training Nico. I highly […]

Kristin has been so great with our dog Mingus. He’s had a few anxiety issues since he moved from NY to LA and she’s been working with him to help alleviate the barking and clinginess. Her method is so easy and fun to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough. To say Mingo is […]

Love Kristin and all she has done for our rescue pup, Koda.  We started with a private training package to see how it would work and love the idea of training in our home versus a park or pet store.  Great idea….well worth it.  Have since signed up for more training and some board & […]
