MadKat Dog Training


“We had the pleasure of working with Kat, training our dog Hazel, a friendly and excitable labradoodle. Kat worked with us because WE needed the training. She helped a lot with walking (without pulling). Kat has many tricks up her sleeve to engage children in the training and make it into fun family games. Kat easily identified Hazel’s strengths and some of her issues. So much of the training that Kat did with us has become what we consistently do now. She’s a great teacher. Kat gave us a wonderful intro to all things dog, since we are first time dog owners.”

“Before Katherine worked with Bailey, he was chewing pillows, refused to go in his crate or walk down the hallway, and wouldn’t go for a walk on a leash. Thanks to her training, we are now able to walk him for miles. He no longer chews pillows and is now able to stay home alone without being crated for short periods of time. When needed for extended periods, he goes into the crate with ease. Katherine is kind, patient and really understands the needs of the dog as well as her clients. She helped us to address behaviors that were concerning to us and tailored each session to our needs. Plus, Bailey loved when she came over!!”

“When we had our first dog, Baby, we reached out to Kat for training. Turned out to be one of the best decision we made. She was so amazing! We were so satisfied with Kat’s professionalism and passion for what she did. Both our dogs love her so much. Definitely recommend!”

“Kat came to my house for a free evaluation to check out my 9 week old lab puppy, Hudson. We contacted her to be proactive with training him. She was punctual and so easy to talk to! She is very knowledgeable about training and kindly told us that our puppy was just being a puppy and he didn’t need training at the time (that says an amazing thing about her character!). She gave me information that had tips about potty training etc.”

“Having a new puppy is overwhelming! We had Kat come to help us with our 5 month old rescue, Maui.  My husband and I both had dogs growing up, but our boys were new to dog ownership and we all needed a crash course in training. “
“Kat is a natural with dogs— Maui fell in love with her immediately and was equally receptive to her commands. She gave us clear instructions and homework to do each week and continued to ask if any new issues arose. Maui has come a long way, thanks to Kat’s guidance. Kat trained us on how to be good dog parents. ”

“Kat was a savior for our pup, Jenny – a classic, very high-energy husky. Before each session, Kat listened to the concerns that we had and customized Jenny’s training for the day around them. We would review the previous training session, Jenny’s progress, and introduce something new with each session. Overall, Jenny’s behavior has improved drastically and Kat gave us the skills necessary to train Jenny ourselves. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dog trainer. ”
