Karen is simply a miracle worker. I wish I had started with Karen three years ago when I first got my dog. I tell EVERYONE who is getting a dog to use her.

  My dog is now a source of joy rather than chronic stress.    Several weeks ago I took my 65-lb shelter pit-mix into our local hardware store. As I stood in line to have keys copied, Whisky lay at my feet and put his head on the floor. As we waited for the...
The 6 Biggest Myths in Dog Training (And What You Should Do Instead)

The 6 Biggest Myths in Dog Training (And What You Should Do Instead)

There’s literally a whole world of information out there on dog training — and most of it is, honestly, kinda nonsense. As a dog trainer, I run into clients all the time who are so convinced that some specific thing is true about dogs and what they need to be healthy,...

The Worst Piece of Advice I Ever Got from a Dog Trainer

I can still remember the feeling in my stomach — this mix of unease, confusion, and just a little bit of anger, when my dog trainer told me that I had to act like a drill sergeant to my dog. This was years before I became a dog trainer myself, and I was in the middle...

How to Train Your Dog to Walk On a Leash (So He Stops Walking You)

It’s easy to get lost in the idea of all the good things that bringing a dog into your life can bring. But it’s not as if every aspect of dog ownership is a walk in the park — indeed, that’s part of the problem. If you’re going to enjoy public life with your new...

The results have been incredible – our little guy who used to be afraid to leave the house and would bark his head off at children playing outside is now able to confidently go on walks, pay attention to us instead of stressors, and be his goofy self.

How to Get a Scared Dog to Trust You

Adopting a new dog is an exciting time. Becoming a pet parent may be something you’ve dreamt about or planned for a while. You bought the food, treats, and toys to pamper and spoil your pooch from the moment he joins your family. You’ve been excitedly...

Karen helped us achieve something we were worried was not possible, and it has made an incredible difference in our lives

I’d had my rescue dog, Henry, for six months and his fear aggression and reactivity was steadily getting worse. The worst had finally happened and he’d bit someone. I had spent thousands on other trainers but the results were short-lived and never stuck.

After training with Karen we took our dog with our friends to the farmers market he didn’t lunge, growl or bark at any single person, he was a completely changed dog. We owe that to Karen for tirelessly working with our dog and equipping us with the methods that we need to help him be successful in situations that scare him. I cannot recommend Dreamy Skies more.

Karen has been pleasure to work with. Before Karen we had an extremely reactive dog. Our pup, Isis, would bark, growl, pull, jerk around and do a kangaroo walk anytime she saw another dog. Under Karen’s guidance our Isis no longer does any of this behavior. This was our third trainer. If we knew about Karen, would have saved time and money.

My pup had severe separation anxiety, bit us numerous times in the first few days we got her, would growl at us and be aggressive about her toys and treats, and sometimes was scary to be around even though she was small

We tried everything with our Lab mix, Kona, but she just kept getting more and more dog-aggressive and was just too much to handle. Car rides were a nightmare. Not only was it stressful and embarrassing to take her anywhere, but it started rubbing off on our other dog

Our young German Shepherd, Leo, was getting more and more out of control to the point where our kids could not walk him and it was SO stressful. Leash aggression, barking at the door and visitors – and we could not get him under control.

The training was mostly about us as owners and how we talk to our dog, how we give her feedback, when and how we praise her, and how we teach her what behaviors result in positive experiences.
