Owner and Training Director
• Graduate of K9 Academy
• AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator
• Professional Member of International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP)
Kristin began her successful dog training career in 1998 and has never looked back. In 2001, she started El Dorado K9 Training from her home in Shingle Springs. As business grew, she felt ready to pursue her dream of a “real” facility, thus the inception of The Local Bark in 2009. She currently assists in all aspects of training when needed, specializing in the more difficult behavioral issues such as anxiety and aggression.
With training at the root of her passion, she continues to expand and develop new training programs for The Local Bark, and is extremely proud of her training team.
