Hi, I’m Kim Guy, Certified Professional Dog Trainer, a former dog groomer, and a former corporate accounting and information technology consultant. Negotiating the demands of the 21st century presents many challenges for our canine companions. My goal is to enhance the lives of both dogs and their owners, fostering greater happiness, vitality, and synergy. This can be achieved by improving communication, and building a better relationship through training, play, and mental enrichment.
In a nutshell, my journey began when I enlisted the services of a Dog Trainer to assist with my leash-reactive dog, Ninni. She would completely lose her mind: barking, lunging, and growling whenever we saw people or other dogs outdoors on walks or in my home. Hiring a trainer was a game changing experience for the both of us. We helped Ninni feel more relaxed, calm, and focused around other dogs. Walking her outdoors and venturing into public spaces has gone from from stressful and unpleasant to enjoyable and fun. I would love the opportunity to do the same for other people and their dogs, because it is life changing!
My standing as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) is underscored by adherence to a compassionate code of practice delineated by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). Further information can be obtained from: https://www.ccpdt.org

Please contact me about my group classes, day training, or private consultations. I would love the opportunity to help you and your dog.

Meet your dedicated dog enthusiast and expert, with a heart full of love for all canines – that’s me! For nearly two decades, I’ve been deeply involved with dogs, considering them as an integral part of my family. My journey began during my teenage years when I took up the role of dog walking and pet sitting for close friends. Little did I know that this passion would evolve into a flourishing business over time.
Throughout my years of experience, I have not only amassed valuable knowledge but also honed my own training methods. My ultimate goal is to empower dog parents with the tools and understanding to ensure their furry companions live a happy and healthy life. Witnessing the remarkable bond that forms between a dog and its owner is something that brings immense joy to my heart, and it is evident in the way I approach my training.
Beyond training, dog walking, and pet sitting, I have discovered another passion – capturing the essence of dogs through photography. My camera is always at the ready, ever eager to seize the perfect picture moment that portrays the unique personality of each furry friend.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that dogs have become the very core of my existence. They have enriched my life in countless ways, and I cherish every moment spent with them. As we embark on this journey together, I look forward to sharing my expertise and love for dogs with fellow dog parents, making the world a better place, one happy pup at a time.
