MEET THE TRAINER
Cat has spent years working professionally with both pet dogs and working canines resulting in a wide range of unique experience in the dog world. She graduated from Auburn University with a BS in Animal Sciences and Microbiology. She worked as a Service Dog Trainer for iK9—a private company producing service dogs and emotional support dogs for military veterans under the guidance of the VA. After iK9, she went to work for Auburn University's Canine Performance Sciences where she developed detection dogs for Auburn's state-of-the-art program. She founded REkALIBRATED k9 in 2017 with the desire to increase the average dog owner's access to safe, fun dog activities and educational resources.
She actively participates in canine-assisted therapy and a variety of dog sports with her own dogs and is always encouraging others to do the same. She maintains a certification in Pet First Aid and makes keeping up with the latest research and discussions on canine behavior a priority. She is one of only 23 Certified Professional Dog Trainers in the state of Alabama, a supporting member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals.
