Since childhood, Katey has been fascinated with animals and animal behavior. She has used several different methods of training with her own dogs and settled on positive reinforcement because it is one of the most powerful tools in shaping and changing behaviors.
Katey is a certified dog trainer through the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). She has completed the Dog Trainer Professional Course through Karen Pryor Academy, and the Certificate in Applied Animal Behavior from the University of Washington (UW-AAB). You will find Katey working with our day train dogs and teaching many of MuttSchool’s group classes.
In Katey’s spare time, she enjoys teaching her own dog, Delilah, a very frisky and feisty terrier mix. Delilah likes learning funny tricks, playing with her best buddy Major and sleeping in front of a warm fireplace.
