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’m also a licensed educator with Family Paws Parent Education, helping families with dogs prepare for–and adjust to–life with babies and toddlers.

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