About Katie and Life with Pup
Katie earned her training credentials through the internationally recognized Karen Pryor Academy. Before deciding dog training was her desired profession, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Michigan Technological University. While in the graduate program for experimental physics at the University of Texas at Austin, she adopted her dog, Rio. Rio helped Katie to uncover her passion for training dogs and helping people. She soon realized her true passion was in working with dogs and their humans.

Life with Pup offers variety of dog training services using positive reinforcement training (including clicker training). Life with Pup specializes in private lessons and coaching for real-life dog skills.

Does your dog jump on guests, pull on leash, or steal cookies from the counter top? Life with Pup will help you to help him/her make better choices. In addition to correcting behavior, Katie can teach you how to play with your pup, learn new tricks and, if your pup is able, perform jumps and basic agility skills.
