Kate began her career by opening her own dog walking business in New York City in 1999 after recognizing that she has a natural affinity with animals. She was invited by Breon O’Farrell of Philosophy Dog Training to be his apprentice and studied intensively with him for two years, after which time she became the executive dog trainer for his organization. Whilst in this position, she helped develop the group classes that she now specializes in and which compliment the tailored, personal training approach she currently provides to her clients.
Kate grew up in the Canary Islands, Greece and England rescuing all kinds of animals, including donkeys rabbits, ducks, goats, cats, dogs and even a few fish. She has trained with dolphins in the Bahamas and has CPR certification. Kate is also a member and board advisor of the Rock and Rawhide charity organization in New York City.
