About Me

huck in face

Hi! I’m Karen Baragona, owner of Eager Beagle Dog Training. Dogs are my passion, and teaching people and dogs how to understand and learn from each other is my mission.

I’m a certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA) and have worked with hundreds of dogs and their people in training classes, home settings, and animal shelters since 2011. I use only positive, force-free, fear-free training methods.

To get a clearer sense of what I do and how I do it, check out these links featuring a talk I gave recently on enrichment, blog posts I wrote for the Pet Professional Guild, and a TV interview I did on Good Morning Washington:

And check out my interview on Good Morning Washington from when I worked at the Washington Humane Society (now the Humane Rescue Alliance).
