Robin has been a dog lover/owner all of her life. She became interested in training and behavior after attending a dog agility competition in 2007. She is currently a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CTDI). She has competed and titled dogs in Agility, Rally, Obedience, Tricks and Scentwork. She is committed to helping people improve their relationships with their dogs through solid training techniques (including some fun tricks!). When she is not training/playing with her 4 dogs, she enjoys watercolor painting and is an avid scuba diver.
Maddi has been an animal lover all her life. After working with Valarie on training her dogs she was inspired to also become a positive reinforcement dog trainer. She has attached Catch Canine Trainers Academy and is working towards becoming a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Certified Enrichment Technician. Maddi has a special interest in working with puppies and hopes to focus on separation anxiety cases in the future. She is passionate about helping her clients create happy, healthy, and well-behaved dogs. When not training she enjoys reading, crafts, time with her dogs Jax and Tara, and time with her new husband Chris.
Valarie has been working with and training animals for as long as she can remember. After fostering a dog named Mitchell, she was inspired by another dog trainer to change career paths. Since that time she has become a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Mentor Trainer for CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, and is working towards becoming a Certified Control Unleashed Instructor and Certified Behavior Consultant. Valarie finds working with dogs that struggle with anxiety, fear, reactivity, and aggression very rewarding. She enjoys working one on one with dedicated guardians. When not training she enjoys reading, traveling with her wife Hannah, watching Schitt’s Creek on repeat, kayaking, hiking with her dogs Gracie Bean and Phoenix, and spending time with her horse, Anja.
