Karen Krieg – Washington DC Virginia USA

My journey began with adopting a difficult dog; and all of the struggles and tears that came along with that, including the thought that there was no hope. Hi! I’m Karen Krieg and I want you to know that I can help you with your dog.

There is hope. Aggressive, reactive, fearful or anxious dogs all need one important thing: their owner to show them the right path. As a dog trainer my job is to educate you, the owner, how to best communicate with your dog and live with your dog. To find ways that you and your dog both relate to and understand to create a balanced, happy relationship. I’m not interested in bullying people into changing everything they do with their dogs, it’s about working together to find a happy medium for both owners and dogs.

I studied and was certified as a dog trainer through the Canine Trade Group. Since being certified I have made it a mission to continue my education in order to help my clients. I’v traveled internationally to work with some of the best dog trainers, take classes routinely and study behavior relentlessly.

My human training philosophy is simple: All people learn differently, so I need to find the best way to teach my clients. Maybe you thrive best while visually learning, or maybe you are more practical, I will meet you where you are at. Everyone learns differently.

My dog training training philosophy is simple: Every dog is an individual which means our approach can’t be cookie cutter. I will work with you and your dog to figure out the best tools and methods to get you guys to thrive!

My clients know I am their biggest advocate and cheerleader.  You should be able to trust your dog. And a trustworthy dog is a dog that gets to go more places and do more things!

I provide in-home dog training which makes the training process easier for my clients. And it’s also great to train in the environment where your dog lives! Set up your consultation today – so we can start helping your dog be the dog you know they really are inside.

I’m excited to get to know you and your dog. So give me a call and we can set up a time for a free evaluation. I’ll come over and have a chat about your situation, show you the methods and tools that I use and offer you some programs options if you decide to move forward. Talk to you soon!
