Grace & Henry

I can’t believe how much your training has improved my life. I get to go on walks through the neighborhood, I don’t waste so much time barking like a MadMan at all those silly little dogs. I’m learning to be in very good control when I see another dog while I am out walking and I come when I am called.


Our​ ​eighteen​ ​month​ ​German​ ​Shepherd​ ​has​ ​been​ ​nothing​ ​but​ ​successful​ ​in​ ​her​ ​training​ ​with  Kathleen​ ​and​ ​Dogtra.​ ​Our​ ​family​ ​adopted​ ​Shayna​ ​last​ ​February​ ​with​ ​a​ ​limited​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​her​ ​background, and​ ​were​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​surprised​ ​with​ ​her​ ​initial​ ​demeanor.​

Marjorie & Asher

Kathleen James came to our home to help us with our five-year-old Heeler mix, Asher. Asher was displaying aggressive behavior whenever a human or dog stranger came onto our property. He would bark, growl and lunge and I was afraid he was going to bite someone.

Tom Cannon & Brady

I have owned dogs all my life but it wasn’t until I adopted a German Shorthair Pointer that I felt the need for professional training. Inside my home Brady was a well behaved and affectionate 2 year old. Outdoors he is a hunting beast. When he got loose it was bedlam.

When I found Kathleen and Atlantic K9 I can’t tell you how instantly relieved I felt. I had been looking for support for my 9mo old puppy regarding separation anxiety and crate training and had reached out to many other companies and individuals in the industry. …

Kathleen saved my dog’s life.  Annie had a bad experience with a runner at the beginning of last summer, a nasty person who screamed at me and at her.  Annie reacted by becoming more and more aggressive around runners….


Kathleen gave me encouragement on the initial phone consultation and even more encouragement after our first session that my two dogs and I were not beyond hope.

Before Kathleen O’Connell came to help me train my dog my life was a series of frustrations.  My puppy bit me frequently and seemed to spend her time, intelligence, and energy trying to convince me that I was born to be her slave.
