Welcome to KatherineK9
Offering dog training and behavior modification services in the San Fernando Valley area of Southern California.
The importance of training a dog is invaluable; it effects the quality of life for the dog, the relationship between human and dog, and the community’s view of dogs in general. It is the difference between having a dog that you lock outside or shut away in a room, and having one that you can take with you places, greets your company politely, and makes life in general more pleasant and enjoyable. A dog should add happiness to your life, not stress, tension, or anxiety. The same should be true for the dog; their relationship with their human should not be stressful, or anxiety ridden, but instead happy and pleasant. This is why trainer Katie McGuire’s focus is always on positive reinforcement training techniques to build a healthy and understanding relationship between humans and dogs.
