Who We Are
My name is Kimmie and I am a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP) & Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) who has spent my career working with animals in various capacities, from animal sheltering, to private practice, and more. I'm the mom of a fearful dog myself, which is what kicked off my interest in animal behavior and training. I've been training dogs for over 5 years, and am always hungry to learn more. I truly enjoy watching students (human and canine alike) learn together, and I can't wait to help you and your pet!

Our services are designed with you and your pet in mind, and we believe in working as much with you as with your animal.

If your dog is over 6 months old, this is your first step! Schedule a behavior consultation to receive a personal written training plan, as well as a 1.5 hour long private lesson. This consultation will teach you how to begin training, and offer advice based on the best choice for you and your pup.
Customize a plan with Harlow School for Dogs and choose from a number of private training packages. Each private training session is an hour long and scheduled at a time that works for you.
