In-home private dog training for puppies, adult dogs & people of all walks of life! Specializing in parent/family education for humans who share their lives with both children & dogs.


KSDT offers solutions for a wide range of training and behavior support for dogs and people within 15 miles of our home base in Ferndale, Michigan.  

KSDT also specializes in supporting growing families pre-baby through toddler years.  Young children and extended family members who share spaces with your dog are welcome to attend sessions (although sometimes young children do best having a secondary activity during lengthy detailed discussions or in consultations that involve dog safety concerns).  

Our goal is to increase the safety of children and the success of dogs in the homes they share. We seek to decrease the number of dogs surrendered to shelters due to easily preventable behavioral problems and common conflicts.

All dogs are welcome in sessions with Kat, as well as people from all walks of life.
