I am happy to add to the list of Katelin and Turbo Training "fans". I reached out to Katelin when I was completely at wits end on how to handle a situation between my two rescued babies. Katelin was absolutely AMAZING and truly worked magic with our two "babies". It took time, patience, dedication, and most of all LOVE to turn things around and I am happy to say things are wonderful between our two babies. While not perfect (does this even exist?) we know how to handle situations as they arise and difuse issues before they happen. I can honestly say without Katelin I do not know if this would have happened. THANK YOU for giving us our babies back and for showing us to how to be good parents. We are ever so grateful. More...

Katelin can over and did an evaluation on our dog Koda. Koda started showing some nervousness and aggression. She spent 2 hours with us getting to know us and our 2 dogs. She has gave us a way to have Koda get familiar with dogs by playing a game and we are working on that now.

Katelin said that she will email a list of recommendations for products and homework so that we can start working with her even more.

Katelin was very friendly and easy to speak to. Made sure that we understood things that she was explaining.

We look forward with working with her!

K9 Turbo training is filled with love, knowledge and compassion (and lots of high value dog treats). Katelin and her team are amazing!

Kate was absolutely AMAZING!! She is helping me learn how to work with and train my very scared and traumatized foster dog!! She spent so much time not only showing me what to do, but explaining the reasoning for every step of the activity, as well as the dogs reactions to events. There are no words to describe how amazing she is!! K9 Turbo Training has given me the tools to make my foster dog an amazing, adoptable dog!! Thanks!! More...

Katelin is absolutely amazing!!! She walked me through every single step to registering my dog as a therapy pet. Not only did she prepare us/ help us pass the Good Citizen's test, as well as the actual therapy test, but she also taught my dog how to wave, take a bow, give a kiss, leave it, and spin. She regularly provided a professional yet warm demeanor for the entire 3 months of working with her and she always gave us the best advice and feedback. From observing her interact with my dog and listening to her talk about her work, I could tell she was truly passionate about helping dogs and their families. She is a wonderful trainer and she helped me accomplish a goal I have been dreaming about since I first got my fur-child 3 years ago!! Thank you, Katelin!! Your work is a blessing and I appreciate everything you've done for us!!!! More...

I came to Katelin at a super low point with my dog Simon. His aggression towards other dogs had gotten worse and worse and it felt like nothing would fix it. Wow was I wrong! In six weeks of group reactive classes we went from him fixating on every dog that walked by to being focused on the training and working with me. The transformation is incredible! If you feel like you are at the end of the road or just want someone who has the patience of a saint and so much confidence and knowledge of dog behavior call Katelin! I especially like that her methods are all about positive reinforcement. Thanks Katelin for helping Simon so much! More...

I cannot begin to describe how amazing Katelin is! We took her dog-reactive course with our Winston and learned so much - he is a completely different dog. She understands every aspect of behavior and explains things in such a way that even the least dog-savvy person can understand.
What's more, when we had an altercation between my dogs Katelin came to our aide immediately, without any hesitation, or even us asking.
She clearly cares deeply and goes so far above and beyond to help her clients and their dogs. She only uses positive reinforcement methods and has more patience (with both dogs and their owners!) than I've ever witnessed with any other trainer. Thank you, Katelin, we will always be singing your praise!

Katelin Thomas and Kate Wilson are my heros! No joke! When I at last found them, I was desperate for guidance and understanding as my dog had bitten myself and my mom on 2 separate occasions and we were devastated. I had no idea where to go or how to move forward. In general, most "experts" that I consulted in my area, couldn't give answers or real help. Katelin immediately gave me peace of mind, direction, encouragement, acceptance and love... LOVE for my furry boy that others thought I was crazy to keep. My dog who has been a ROCKstar in this process has been given a second chance at life, and he gets to be a real dog! Katelin and Kate have empowered me with knowledge and the ability to put it into action. The confidence to move and push forward, the comfort of knowing they are there for each milestone no matter how small it may seem or how long the process may take. Its an understatement to say they have saved our lives! Just a little under a year ago I was in a place of great emotional struggle as I loved my dog like my children; my fear that I could not understand why this happened and would I ever be at peace again with him, with myself. Now, not only do I Love him even more, I am Enjoying our journey together.. My heart cannot THANK them enough!!! Rocky and I love you both so much More...

Katelin is incredibly knowledgeable and has helped me a great deal with my reactive dog. She patiently explains dog-training concepts and makes sure that her clients know how to take this information and apply it in real-life scenarios. I can't even begin to list all of the ways that Katelin has improved my dog's quality of life. From giving me the tools necessary to work on reactivity during walks to coming to my home one day and working through my dog's long-term phobia about walking through the back door, Katelin can handle any dog behavior scenario in a humane, positive way. I am so grateful for all of the help and support she has provided me over the past two years. More...

I don’t know where we’d be without Katelin! There are people in our life that would advise us to put Cooper down for his fear aggression, but Katelin has validated our love for and belief in Cooper. She has given us the tools, direction and confidence to help Cooper navigate his world. Katelin has a knack for helping us relate to Cooper’s anxieties and what it will feel like for him to overcome them. She responds to all of our questions with compassion, support, an unbelievable level of knowledge and creative problem solving. Our in-home training sessions are jam-packed with hands-on learning and invaluable advice. With Katelin’s help I am confident we are taking the right steps to improve Cooper’s quality of life and I can’t imagine working with any other trainer. More...

We got a puppy a couple of weeks ago, and our world turned into pure chaos! Lol
I knew puppies were hard and no matter how prepared I felt, I was not. I called Katelin desperate for help and she sent me Kate, Kate is from heaven! She is so knowledgeable and helpful, she truly gave me back control over our lives! Frank is a wild and crazy puppy, but with clicker in hand I now feel in control and see a puppy who will be a good dog soon! Now if only I could get my 3 1/2yr old son to respond to clicker training! Haha! Thank you so much K9 Turbo Training!! More...

I was referred to Katelin and Krista via the rescue group that I am fostering with after my foster dog developed separation anxiety. Their task was really two-fold - help the dog's anxiety at being left alone and help my anxiety about not being up for the fostering task. After a course of five meetings they've significantly increased my confidence in my ability to foster and train an awesome future family addition as well as my foster dog's confidence and security. We both have loved training and I learned about so many other aspects of my dog's behavior. Katelin's researched and science based approach really appealed to my own background and studies in the evolution of animal behavior. I am so thankful to them both and happy to know that my foster dog now has the opportunity to flourish in his future furever home and I am so much more prepared to tackle my next foster challenge.

Katelin is a true gift to the dog training world. Before I found her, I worked with countless trainers (and invested a tremendous amount of time and financial resources) only to make my dog's behavior issue worse. I began obedience training with my pup when he was 8 weeks old. He excelled in obedience, and could do the commands in his sleep. Despite this, we had a specific issue that was really becoming a problem. He was very wary around people he didn't know, particularly when visitors came to our home. Katelin recognized the issue immediately--fear aggression--which was something other professionals had not done. She then referred us to a specialty vet, and provided a very specific training regimen. We are still working through the training, and Katelin had been there every step of the way. Her methods are research based, and she really knows her stuff. She is highly sensitive to the needs of our dog (and his owners, ha!), and is incredibly supportive and professional. She tailored her training approach specifically to our dog, and she truly, truly understands him. I've learned so much about canine communication and body language-its truly amazing. I can't recommend K9 Turbo Training enough! More...

Everyone knows I cannot say enough good things about K9 Turbo Training. I've worked with Katelin and have been to one of Kate's lectures and both experiences have left me energized and ready to start doing more with my dogs. Twice in the past month we have had visitors who have exclaimed that our difficult dog (Mason) is much better behaved than he was last time they were there.

This is thanks to new coping mechanisms as well as a better understanding of the fear Mason was experiencing. You don't need a difficult dog to work with them, but if you have a difficult dog, a scared dog, a dog who has you running out of options, please give them a call.

I have to say I was skeptical of the harness. But we just went on a very long walk and she didn't pull me at all!! She is very fearful on walks and the confidence I saw in her today was truly a miracle! I can't explain it, but I think we had the best walk ever today! With her being so much calmer made my smaller one be better too! I really wish they made an XXS!! Thank you for the life saver. I will be in contact soon for training also!!! More...

You guys are basically gurus. I tell everyone how awesome you are. I've only had the pleasure of meeting Kate and Fransisco but I have received endless support from Katelin and Ashley has been great with communicating/working around my weird schedule to book training. After our first initial meeting, I knew Kate would be the last trainer I'd ever need(which means she can't ever retire because I will need her for my future neurotic dogs). That's saying a lot considering I've already gone through three. I thought I was destined to be hopping from trainer to trainer to sort out my boy's issues. We've only had 4 sessions with Kate and the change I see in my boys quirks and fears is huge. We're working on everything from his fear of dogs to learning to pull a cart for fun. I love that I can send video clips and any questions to any of these ladies and they're happy to help. Not only does my boy love our lessons, but I look forward to them. The amount of knowledge packed into one lesson is crazy. I feel like I'm in an episode of Nat Geo visiting Kate, Fransisco and the farm. Love that place and so does Lazlo! This is such an awesome team of people who genuinely care and know what they're doing. I will not recommend anyone else from here on out. Love you guys!! More...

We have a very fearful male Argentine Dogo, Zeus, age 3, a two year old rescue who recently developed intense fear of other dogs and another male Argentine Dogo age 12,.5 who is just perfect. This is a potent mix. I have been working with a variety trainers for Zeus since he was a tiny puppy as he was obviously very afraid (and also eyesight limited) even as a pup. I am so very, very grateful that I met Katelin, Francisco and Kate. They have changed our lives. If you have ever loved a fearful dog, you know how heartbreaking it can be. K9 Turbo Training can change everything for you. It is a lot of commitment, and for Zeus will be a lifelong work in progress, but it works. Thank you for making all of our lives so much better!!
