About Me

huck in face

Hi! I’m Karen Baragona. I’m a certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA) and have worked with hundreds of dogs & their people in training classes, home settings, and animal shelters since 2011. I also work as a behavior & training associate at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

I use only positive, force-free training methods and specialize in leash reactive dogs, anxious dogs, and dogs living with young kids. And I donate 25% of all earnings to shelters and rescues.

To get a clearer sense of what I do and how I do it, check out these workshops I presented at the nonprofit Your Dog’s Friend, and a TV interview on Good Morning Washington from my days at the Washington Humane Society (now called the Humane Rescue Alliance).
