About

Linda Keehn CPDT-KA Founder of Positive Canine Training and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.

I believe in dog training that is safe, effective and fun. You will love the results and your dog will love the process.  

I enjoy seeing the bond grow between families and their dogs, as they learn to communicate. When the dog learn what is wanted and expected of him, they want to behave. Then the real fun starts, a well-behaved dog is a pleasure to live with.

I do not use pain and intimidation to train dogs. Instead I use highly effective, science based, humane, easy and fun techniques to get your dog to want to listen to you. My clients have had great success using these methods. 

Sadly, the field of dog training is completely unregulated, Anyone can call themselves a dog trainer without any formal training or education. The methods they use can be at best ineffective and at worse abusive.

I have invested in my education as a canine professional and have gone through several rigorous certification processes to enhance and validate my expertise. I maintain membership in several professional organizations and maintain a code of ethics.                                                                                           

Among my certifications is the CPDT-KA designation from the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers CCPDT.org. The leading certifying organization for the dog training profession. In order to continue to maintain my certification and stay at the forefront of the dog training profession, I regularly pursue Continuing Education and attend dog training seminars, workshops and conferences.

My qualifications include Certified Professional Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed CPDT-KA, Dognostic Career Center- Dog Behavior Consultant DN-DBC, Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer CSAT, Therapy Dog Trainer, evaluator for Therapy Dogs International, American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen evaluator, Certified Trick Dog Instructor.

Positive Canine Training offers private in-home training, behavior modification and classroom instruction for puppies and adult dogs. I treat dogs and their families with respect and kindness, while helping them achieve their training goals.
