Katherine Ellerd, CPDT-KA



My first passion in life has always been working with animals. I have been working with dogs professionally since 2013 and  hold a certification as a Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). I am am also a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT-KA) and volunteer my time doing Animal Therapy through the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.

I work with dogs of ALL BREEDS and AGES and utilize gentle positive reinforcement methods in my training. I am a passionate advocate for increasing the owner/dog bond using various reinforcement methods and skills. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty or go the extra mile to make sure you and your pup(s) have a happy and rewarding experience!
