Let me teach you how to have the best behaved dog possible!!

The majority of dog trainers use outdated methods relying on intimidation, force and conditional rewards.

Scientific research has now proved that the traditional dog training, obedience based, methods are less effective than methods involving consistent fair guidance, meeting all the dog’s needs and the provision of choice.

Dogs’ cognition, emotions and ability to learn is not dissimilar to that of a 3yr old child. Science has shown us that if we teach dogs in the same way as we teach children the dogs make faster and more successful progress than when we use the traditional methods involving force, bribery and coercion.

This, in turn, leads to dogs being confident, educated and able to control their behavior by themselves rather than being trained to obey commands.

My approach is based on teaching pet parents how to build a solid bond with their dog based on trust - forging a deep relationship with these wonderful animals. Following this protocol results in dogs who are happier, more confident and safer to be around.

Kathrine Breeden provides professional, force free, positive training in your pet’s own home. As a mobile vet, I find that many training issues and behavior problems are best addressed when and where they occur. Kathrine helps educate owners so that they can achieve the best behaviors from their pets. I have had nothing but good reviews from clients.

Lora Schelle, DVM Schelle Veterinary Services

I’m a dog trainer from California and would have no reservations recommending Kathrine. I’m confident she always has the dog’s best interest at heart, and her kindness is clearly evident in all that she says and does. She’s top notch in my book and I love her methods! If you’re in need of training, look no further than “Be Kind to Dogs!

Mark Schmidt, DVM Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic, AZ

I had a great experience with Kathrine. Not only did she work with our 10 week old Rottweiler but she worked with us. She taught my family so much about what we needed to do to get our puppy off to a good start. I highly recommend Katherine, if your looking for a trainer that really cares!

Candace Sanchez

Kathrine Breeden was introduced to myself as I was opening up my new clinic. As a veterinarian, our goal is to provide the best and most compassionate care to all our pets. We see a lot of stressed animals and clients. Having hand outs and appropriate knowledge in handling is of the utmost importance. Kathrine was like a breath of fresh air. Her genuine personality and her willingness to share her knowledge was so refreshing. My clients speak very highly of her and even find more enjoyment with training their pets. Her library content and handouts on her website are great as well as her Facebook page. She has provided valuable continuing education to my facility and a new awareness of what we can do to strengthen the human animal bond. She is very educated and a great addition to anyone that wants to see the benefits of TRUE positive reward based training.
