Karin, born and raised in Victoria, has always been destined to live a life surrounded by dogs. At age 14, she worked and saved her own money to purchase her first Bernese Mountain Dog. From there, the passion for all things “dog” had begun.
With her own personal dogs, she enjoys doing competitive dog sports such as Obedience, Rally, and Conformation as well as the Canine Good Neighbour test, and most recently earning her first Novice Trick Dog title. She loves to help clients really engage with their dogs and experience that joy that comes with truly having FUN with your dog!
Karin is a wife and mother to a daughter who loves dogs, just like her mom! She currently has a spunky young Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She is a huge advocate for responsible, ethical breeding practices.
With over 15 years of experience training thousands of dogs (and their humans!) in group obedience and private training, she has helped countless dog owners have a successful life with their dogs. On the side, she also operates a successful small business doing dog walking and dog boarding.
Karin facilitates our socialization and obedience classes in the Westshore and Sooke.
