My name is Karen Quillen, I feel that I am an old soul fighting a long battle. I am a Dog Trainer, simple right? Not really. I thought that I would embark upon my career and simply train dogs. I have loved dogs since I could walk. I wanted to embrace that love and in doing so, I learned so much more than I ever anticipated. Dogs have taught me all that I know, I was never training them. I was assisting them to be the best that they could be. Humans put so much pressure on them. I do not believe that this is intentional, I believe that we are all doing the best we can. So are the dogs. As humans we label and place blame. We assume that we know what the dog is thinking and why they are behaving that way. If you really want to know why your dog is behaving a certain way, take a look at yourself. They are trying very hard in our crazy world to figure out what we want and we owe the same to them. This is my introduction to who I am and why I want to tell you what to do. I will tell my story to you through the dogs that I have loved, trained and lost.
