"A Well-Trained Human Makes For a Well-Trained Dog"


My name is Kristal Walters, I’m a 24-year-old Colorado Native. I grew up with a passion for animals and their wellbeing. In high school I volunteered 300+ hours at Lifeline Puppy Rescue! This local Colorado adoption facility allowed me to observe the responsibility behind caring for a dog and the importance of training them. I was able to observe training techniques and manipulate them into my own. Fast-forward to my Sophomore year of college I adopted a Border Collie mix and started training her. I realized that for you to have a well-trained dog you must be a well-trained human. Caring for an animal in your home is as much about responsibility as it is about love and friendship. Let me help you create a connection with your dog to ensure a lifetime obedience. Get the most out of your relationship with your pet by contacting me today.

Techniques and Training Philosophy

In order for you to have a well trained dog you must be a well trained human. My ultimate goal is to teach you how to communicate with your dog. I use several techniques: 

  • Positive reinforcement;

  • Relationship-based training;

  • Mirror training.

I am able to train:

  • Basic/Advanced Obedience Training; 

  • Leash Training;

  • Behavioral Training;

  • Simple Agility Training;

  • Service Training.
