Thank you so much

sure that the trick training has meant that we have never had any destructive problems as we can keep him well engaged and happy doing tricks. Peekabo is the favourite at the

A fresh lair of
eyes has reinvigorated my love of trick training, especially as I have a new rescue dog and have to adjust to a new way of working. I enjoyed the class which meant so did my dog. I will be sorry when
the zoom classes end as I live too far away to attend in person.

I have attended
Fun Trick Dog Training classes both in person and on Zoom. As a fellow instructor, I have enormous respect for Kathleen and can highly recommend her classes. Kathleen’s preparation and care is second
to none, and she treats each dog as an individual. Guaranteed fun and learning with a very supportive instructor.

A message from
Beans: Fun Trick Dog Training is definitely what it says: fun for dogs who love to learn tricks. I take the liberty of speaking for all of dogkind, we do love to learn tricks. We exercise our mind
and our bodies at classes and strengthen the bond with our hoomans through verbal and non-verbal communication. There's nothing better. Thank you Kathleen for
bringing so much fun into our lives

“They say you
should never work with children and animals. Well, we worked with both at a recent children’s book launch and it was a huge success. The dog display was a terrific talking point and there were plenty
of delighted ‘ooh!’s and ‘aaah!’s throughout. Highly recommended and even more highly enjoyable.”

Brandy playing dead in front of audience, 2nd of July 2016
Thank you very much for being part of the inaugural edition of Art Night; we were really honored to have 2 perfectly trained dogs for Nina Beier's project.
Brandy indeed performed incredibly well, both the artist and the curator were absolutely thrilled with her.

Axis and I had
tons of fun doing the Magic Pooch Awards. We learned a lot of new tricks, which was great, and I had quite a few laughs when things didn't go as planned. Your positive and enthusiastic
comments made it a really special experience. I was very proud when Axis earned level 3!
Next will be the Magic Pet Award with my horse -;)

Brandy were the guest stars at my son's birthday party (Paw Patrol themed). We wanted to demonstrate how clever dogs can be. Brandy did not disappoint.
In a strange house with children ranging between 2 and 12 years, Brandy performed perfectly. She wasn't phased by their chitter chatter or noises and focused entirely on Kathleen to complete all
tricks. She didn't appear phased or nervous once and even let the children perform the tricks too, responding to their commands.
Kathleen is a true professional and had a clear idea of what would work well. She brought a lot of her props with her. She had prepared a set of tricks for Brandy
to do and educated the children
about how Brandy (and other dogs) can learn.
Kathleen's openness and flexibility was wonderful. She communicated with me regularly and helped me to consider things to prepare.
The children and all their parents said how wonderful Brandy and Kathleen were. I could not agree more.
Thank You for all the effort you made Kathleen! And BIG THANKS to Brandy for being the Star she is!

Kathleen has a
wonderful way with dogs - she is both patient and calm which encourages them to give her their best.
She has done amazing work with her own two dogs who can do great tricks - some that are just clever and some that make you laugh.
