Specializing in helping people and dogs work together as a team, Kirsten has over 25 years of experience as a trainer, teacher and coach. As a certified dog behavior consultant and licensed Family Dog Mediator, she uses the L.E.G.S. model as the structure for her consultations. This gives her the platform to help clients develop the confidence and technical skills necessary to both understand and communicate with their dogs, address their struggles and make pragmatic changes to the environment while seeing the world through their dog's perspective. Kirsten has found that both dogs and their people learn more proficiently and find solutions when the experience is designed and supported by the positive-based framework of L.E.G.S. She holds special certifications in working with aggressive and reactive behaviors, family dog mediation and trick training and games.
