Good Time Canines Kathy Weaver, CPDT-KA, CNWI
About Kathy Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI) Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CTDI)  Kathy's teaching philosophy is based on concern for each dog and handler's unique needs. She believes training challenges should be approached by considering the dog's physical and emotional wellbeing, prior training history and its relationship to its handler. When training new skills or solving a training challenge, Kathy’s approach is to work on foundation first, then gradually increase challenges. For over 40 years Kathy has shared her practical knowledge and enthusiasm for a variety of dog activities, including obedience, rally-o, nose work, tricks, games, freestyle and Rally Freestyle Elements. She stays abreast of advances in training methods by attending seminars and workshops instructed by internationally recognized canine behaviorists and trainers. Her training methods are based on reinforcement techniques that build a positive relationship between handler and dog. Kathy’s primary goals are to strengthen the bond students have with their dogs and to help them achieve their goals. She challenges students to be creative in their training and, most importantly, to enjoy working with their dogs. She believes it is vital for students to be consistent and provide clear communication with their dogs. Over the years In competition, Kathy’s dogs have earned multiple AKC obedience and rally titles,  World Canine Freestyle Organization (WCFO) championships in Musical Freestyle and Heel-to-Music, Rally Freestyle Elements Grand Championship, herding trials championships, trick dog titles, parkour dog title, and numerous placements in NACSW and UKC nose work trials. She has trained and competed with Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Jack Russell Terriers, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds and Belgian Tervuren. Kathy is currently competing with her 9-year-old Belgian Tervuren and 4-year-old Jack Russell Terrier in Nose Work, having earned NACSW NW3 and UKC Superior titles with her Tervuren, and NACSW NW2 and UKC Advanced titles with her Jack Russell Terrier. Kathy’s motto is “Every day and every training session should be a good time for you and your canine.”
