Multiple Dog Household Workshop

Friday, February 1st, from 7p-8p!

Do you own more than one dog? So do we!

We’ll teach you our system of creating a multi-dog household free of aggression and tension. Join us for this one-hour workshop to help you manage the dogs that you have, and give ideas for the dog you’re thinking of getting. Our motto is: You teach “Come.” You teach “Sit.” You need to teach “Pack Harmony” as well.

Mootugs are upcycled handmade dog toys that, after being washed and sanitized, are created from rubber tubes that were used to milk dairy cows! The dogs LOVE the unique cow scent of these tugs (we promise your house won’t smell like cows). Mootugs proudly donates a percentage of their sales to dog rescue organizations. Over the past few years they have been able to donate nearly $30,000 dollars! We have an EXCLUSIVE discount just for our students and readers for 15% off when you use the code KATHYSANTO at checkout!

One of our friends started a pet product ambassador/testing club. It’s actually pretty cool—they send you products to test for free, and you get to keep them—just for giving your feedback! What’s the catch? You have to love dogs, and you have to be an honest person 🙂 A lot of the products are worth $25 or more, and current participants are really enjoying it!

If you’re interested, they’re running the group in Facebook Messenger—here’s the sign-up:

Kathy Santo's Pet-A-Groom

Did you know? We have our own FULL SERVICE grooming shop right next door to our dog training school!

The trainers at the dog school regularly accompany our student’s dogs to the shop to help them relax during their grooming experience.

We also take our FastTrack dogs there when requested, and do training sessions to teach them to how to calmly stand on the table, have their nails done, and allow their body to be handled, even when there’s lots of sounds going on from the clippers and dryers! We like to say that our student’s dogs learn to be the best grooming clients!

Our Services

Group Classes

We have over 40+ classes each week including Puppy, Beginner I and II Obedience, Intermediate Obedience, Advanced (off leash) Obedience, a Therapy Dog Program, Canine Gym classes, and Nosework.

Private Lessons

Each private session is designed to meet your individual goals. We’ll spend the lesson focused on what you want to teach and what problems you want solved.

FastTrack Training

No time to train your dog yourself? Our popular Fast Track program allows you to drop your dogs off at the school for a day of playing and training.


This program is designed to make faster progress with training, enrich your dog’s social skills, and provide an outlet for his excess energy in a safe and supervised environment.


For current students we have boarding options available. Please email Stef for more details @ ksdt.stef@gmail.com
