Karen Shipe

Karen's earliest memories are of playing and taking naps with her first dog, a cockapoo named Fritzi.  Ever since then, dogs have been an important part of her life.  Her career with dogs began as a volunteer socializing and walking shelter dogs, and later as a behavior evaluator for the Humane Society of Silicon Valley.  That led to an interest in dog training and eventually a change of career to become a full-time dog trainer.  Dog training has given her the opportunity to help dogs and their guardians build positive and happy relationships, thus reducing the number of dogs surrendered to shelters.  

Karen is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and member of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG) and Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT).
