Kate Olson, KPA CTP
Founder and Director of Training
I started My Dog and Me, LLC with my husband after graduating from Karen Pryor Academy’s Dog Trainer Program in 2012 with eight years of dog training experience. In 2013 I place my first service dog and found it so rewarding I have been training service dogs ever since.
Before training service dogs, I worked in many fields of the animal care profession over the past ten years including as a dog trainer, at daycare/boarding facilities and in veterinary offices. I have completed internships at zoos, trained search and rescue dogs, herding dogs, and hundreds of pet dogs.
Service Dog Trainer
I’ve owned and worked with animals all my life. I’ve done a lot. I’ve been a professional groomer Loved it. (I’ve even won awards competing against other groomers nationwide) I’ve been a Vet Tech. I couldn’t handle the sad parts of the business so well. And I’ve taken a few courses on Dog training. In 2013 I certified through Penn and Fosters Career School and recently I completed a Karen Pryor Academy course.
