Group Classes

Owner and dog learn basic to advanced skills and get Canine Good Citizen certified.

Group ClassThis is a workshop done on three consecutive Saturdays, and is offered four times per year alternating between Wall, SD and Rapid City, SD. Times are from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

I provide basic obedience, advanced obedience and social skill training to both the dogs and owners. Through teaching and various activities, the owner learns how the dog thinks, thereby greatly enhancing the communication and the relationship between the dog and owner. Each owner and their dog is evaluated and a working plan is designed for each individual team.

We also work on and address any problems you may be experiencing with your dog. Every owner works not just with their dog, but every dog in the class. The benefit of this is the is the dog’s social skills are enhanced and the owners become "mini-dog whisperers.” Every dog has something to teach you about your leadership skills.

This class is a lot of fun! The dogs provide an element of comedy since they are very good at “mirroring” us. The price for the class is $95 for 1 dog and 1 person.

To find out the dates of the next class and sign up, go to the Career Learning Center of the Black Hills Community Education website. The class is called “Does Your Fido Need Fixing?"

Note: This class is required if your dog is in training for service or therapy work.

    Animal Behaviorist
    Animal Psychology Center in Philip, South Dakota, is a pet psychology center owned by animal behaviorist and trainer, Katherine Andrews. Services and training are available in Rapid City, SD, and many desperate owners have traveled in from other states for her specialized expertise.

    My passion is to train and rehabilitate dogs with behavioral issues. Some even call me a "dog whisperer" thanks to my ability to work through particularly tough behavior problems and help with aggressive dogs, even when other trainers have failed and owners have nearly given up.

    Through my early love for animals, I developed it into a lifetime career and commitment. Backed with 20 years of animal training experience, I take pride in making life better for people and pets through my animal psychology services.
