Kimberly is a certified Master Dog Trainer with over 3 years of training experience. Kim always had a passion for helping others and knew her gift was to help people through dogs. In January 2017, Kim attended Highland School for Dog Trainers in North Carolina to become a certified master dog trainer. While attending school, Kim learned how to train dogs in general obedience, behavioral modification, fear and aggression, service dogs, search and rescue (wilderness, area, rural, suburban, disaster), human remains detection (HRD), police canine/criminal apprehension, detection canines, protection canines, agility, and rally. She is certified in training each of the above mentioned and is also certified in training others interested in becoming trainers. 


Kim decided to start her own business with her husband, Doug, and together in 2017, they founded American Blue Collar Canine LLC. Ever since, Kim & Doug have had the pleasure of working with clients to assist them with their dog training needs. Their biggest reward is getting to see the difference each dog makes in their clients' lives.
