"I have enjoyed working with Kate to socialize our puppy. Our puppy was fearful of new environments, other dogs and new people. After working with Kate and her training partner Murphy, we are able to explore new places and greet other people and dogs without fear or barking! "

"Kate cares so very deeply for animals and the work that she does. She is invested in the success of both the owners and dogs in her classes and sessions and will truly do whatever she can feasibly do to insure success for all."

"I am so impressed with how much progress my pup has made! Mochi was really shy and cautious when we first got her at 8 weeks. While I did my best to socialize her, I saw the most improvement after Mochi worked with Kate. She did a complete 180! She is more curious about her surroundings, people, and other dogs rather than overtly afraid of everything... Extremely impressed by her knowledge, compassion, and professionalism. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for knowledgeable trainer."

"Kate has super responsive since day one, extremely patient, and worked through every speed bump with a critical eye and the least amount of stress possible to my pups. She's reassured me even when I feel like I'm screwing everything up and makes sure we're all set up to be successful. The first visit they barely let her into the apartment and now they whine when they see her car pull into the parking lot. I can't recommend her highly enough, even though she turned down my offer to be a live in dog whisperer."

"We have been working with Kate for over two years and we could not imagine life without her. I work a very demanding job with very strange hours, and Kate has always been professional, flexible, and makes my dog as much a priority as I do! I never have to wonder if my dog is being well loved or cared for while I’m away. I love how my dog gets to safely walk with other dogs and have fun out in the world! I feel like we hit the jackpot and I couldn’t recommend her services enough!"

"We highly recommend Kate and her business Capital Canines. Kate has cared for our dogs since she started her business. We've been very happy with her dog walking and pet sitting services. She is reliable, she communicates well and is very capable. She genuinely cares about our dog and it shows - our dog is thrilled to see Kate on her visits."
Alison D.
"I can't recommend Kate highly enough. She's made a tremendous positive difference in my dogs' lives since 2018, and they adore her. She is completely reliable, she communicates whenever there's anything I'd need to know (a change in behavior, a loose dog in the neighborhood, etc.), and she really pays attention to the dogs' personalities. I can trust her to give my dogs the attention, exercise, and socializing that they need. She's the best!"
