Dog Training Testimonials


I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Katie! I contacted Katie after our doggie daycare reported some "aggression" issues with our 2-year old Shepherd mix, Myka. Katie was wonderful and really helped us better understand Myka's behavior and how to work with her to make her a more confident/secure and well-behaved dog. We worked on basic obedience training and leash manners with great success, but even more than that it was learning about body language and behaviors... and learning that what some people take for aggression can actually be fear/anxiety/insecurity. One other thing that was invaluable was that Katie recognized that Myka is not as confident when I am handling her as opposed to my boyfriend. I had never picked up on that before and just thought she was having good days and bad days, not that she was fearful/anxious when I was handling her. Being aware of this and everything else Katie showed us really leaves me feeling confident that we are on the right track and have the tools to continue working with Myka to make her a more calm/relaxed and well-behaved dog. And its nice to know Katie is only a phone call away if I have a question or if we need a couple extra lessons down the road.


Katie used positive reinforcement to teach our 7-month-old cockapoo better behavior, including not jumping on visitors, pulling on his leash or taking "people" food. She easily connected with him and helped us improve our human-dog communication. Also her schedule was flexible and she was punctual. Thanks!


Kate the owner /trainer of Top Dog Training transformed my dog Amy from a  aggressive behavior style into a well mannered dog. Through three sessions, Amy learned over 12 commands including how to stop her charging the fence when my neighbors dog was allowed out! Katie's style is positive reinforcement which proved to be the key for change in my dog as Amy is a rescue and in her previous life had been abused.
I really enjoyed our training time together as Katie has the patience and humor that makes her the perfect person to deal with owners as well as all types of dogs. I will forever be in her debt!
