“In order to work with our dog’s on adjusting their behaviors and state of mind, we have to be willing to work on ourselves. One can’t happen without the other.”

With Love, Caroline


One-on-One, Hands-On Training

Lupa K9 was created to provide dog owners with the insight and guidance they need with care and compassion in order to achieve the results they want. It’s not easy balancing a busy life while living with a dog that is out of control, showing signs of aggression, or [insert your dog’s unwanted behavior here].

I know first-hand how stressful life can be when you have a dog that exhibits unpleasant behaviors. It’s easy to let your frustrations and hopelessness get the best of you and unfortunately, behaviors like excessive barking, aggression, anxiety, and other fear-based behaviors often lead owners to give up the dog or worse, put them down. But there is hope! With structure, leadership, communication and consistency paired with the proper tools and methods even the most troubled dogs can live balanced happy lives. That’s where I come in!

Lupa K9 provides dog owners with a one-on-one, hands-on training experience that involves the owners every step of the way! I have found that involving owners throughout the entire process helps build a strong and lasting relationship with their dog and, as a bonus, they get to witness the fruits of their labor unfold each day!

I care deeply about every family I work with because I have been there and know how challenging the process can be and how it can impact your own mental health and wellness with the added stress of a new puppy or a dog that is stressed, anxious, or aggressive. But I also know how rewarding it is to see you and your dog transform your relationship into one that flows with the help of clear, calm communication creating a happy and confident dog and a more confident you!

So, how does this transformation happen?

Understandably, most owners struggling with behaviors such as aggression, resource guarding, leash pulling, etc, want a quick fix. However, these behaviors are often symptoms that stem from greater, unseen issues like anxiety, fear, and stress and can take some time to work through. Does this mean you won’t see fast results? No!

By approaching these behaviors holistically, we can tap into your dog's mental state by using obedience in a functional way to make you more relevant in your dog’s life, change the choices your dog makes, and teach them other alternative solutions when confronted with a trigger or stressor.

My dog training methods utilize a holistic approach that targets your dog’s motivations through a consistent balance of rewards and corrections. This balanced approach to dog training creates clear, consistent communication, structure, and leadership between you and your dog, and allows you to paint a clear picture of what behaviors are appropriate and what behaviors are not. It is mind-body work at its best! By systematically and consistently using obedience, we can actively work on creating a calmer state of mind and body and uncover your dog’s true potential in a transformative way!


What would training look like?

My goal is to empower families/owners to achieve long-term success, build a stronger and healthier bond with their dog, and bring fun and joy to the training process! Together we will create a tailored training plan that will teach you how to implement the tools, techniques, and lifestyle changes on your own so you will not be left in the dark when our training sessions end.

However, your participation does not end when I walk out the door. The key to creating a healthy relationship with your dog is by understanding that your behavior, expectations, and state of mind will need to adjust too! Everything you do and feel has an effect on your dog, and your actions and energy can reinforce bad behaviors without even realizing it. This holistic approach isn't just about tapping in to your dog's state of mind, it's also about creating a more grounded you so you can show up as your best self for you and your dog.

Training a dog with serious and even minor behavior issues is a lifestyle change. I know it sounds overwhelming, but the changes are often small. And when these changes are applied consistently they will drastically change your life and your dog’s life for the better.

My biggest goal is to help bring peace and harmony back into your life and to make the process clear and fun for both you and your dog. It will take some work, tough love, consistency, and change, but if you implement positive change now, you and your dog can live an enjoyable and stress-free life! If you’re ready to create a more balanced life for you and your dog, I'm ready for you!
