Katie wanted to find a way to combine her passion for animals with a career, so she enrolled in a long distance education course at Penn Foster in 2013 to become a dog trainer. Following graduation she spent a year apprenticing with Unleashed Pawsabilities, assisting with group classes and private behavior consultations. Katie is always researching and continuing to further her dog behavior education, she is currently a member of Association of Pet Dog Trainers. Katie also spends her free time improving the lives of shelter dogs by volunteering.
