KATRINA BURNS

Katrina has been an animal professional for the majority of her life. Beginning her career training horses, Katrina prepared both horses and their owners to compete at a national and world level, helping them to achieve multiple championship titles. While continuing to train horses, Katrina also earned a Master's Degree in Secondary Education and became a middle and high school English teacher.  
Though she loved teaching, she quickly realized she missed her true passion of working with animals. She decided to rejoin the animal training industry by focusing her attention on working with dogs and their owners. Combining many of the techniques used in training horses, those learned through teaching children, as well as those attained from her training at The International School for Dog Trainers, Katrina has helped individuals and families throughout the west coast create peace and consistency in their homes in order to be able to enjoy their dogs as successful members of their family.

 

Katrina holds a certification in Dog Training and the Use of the Remote Electronic Training Collar from The International School for Dog Trainers, where she trained with Martin Deeley, an internationally renowned gundog/petdog trainer and author from England, founder and Executive Director of the International Association of Canine Professionals, and the head coach of the United States Retriever Team. She also trained with James Hamm, a retired United States Army Command Sergeant Major who, while holding leadership positions for 25 years, focused his efforts on communicating, planning, and training to achieve success with soldiers, civilians, and dogs.
