Katrina Krings

Katrina has been part of our training team for nine years. She teaches a variety of group classes on such topics as puppy socialization and training, adolescent and adult obedience, level II obedience, tricks, and agility. Katrina also teaches private lessons, addressing everything from basic training to fear and aggression issues. She embraces a philosophy of behavior modification which focuses on positive reinforcement and consistent management.

Katrina is the creator of a first of it’s kind, after school class for kindergarten and elementary school children about dogs. Katrina also has a special interest in homeless animals and served as the Director of Behavior and Training at Animal Haven Shelter.

Katrina graduated with honors and earned a degree in Psychology with an emphasis on animal behavior from Long Island University. While studying in Thailand, India, and Romania Katrina conducted an international independent study on stray dogs.

Katrina was a volunteer for the League of Animal Welfare in Cincinnati, Ohio from 1999 to 2005, and is an accomplished equestrienne. As such, she was an assistant manager at Apple Creek Stables in Ohio, where she designed course plans and instructed all levels of classes. She has applied her impressive understanding of animal behavior and training skills to a wide range of animals including dogs, horses, and even guinea pigs.

Both of her dogs Stella, a 5 pound Brussels Griffon, and Maeby, a 35 pound Brittany mix, are rescues that compete with Katrina in AKC and USDAA agility trials. Most recently, Stella qualified for the 2010 USDAA Nationals and Maeby is showing great promise as she begins her agility career. Katrina and Stella were also invited to be amongst the first competitors in the Westminster Masters Agility Championship in February, 2014.
