Sigh of Relief’s training method focuses on the connection between dog and owner. When you start your training journey with SOR, we will work on strengthening this connection before introducing obedience.

A note from Kate

Trainer + Founder of Sigh of Relief

I’ve made all the mistakes with my dogs. Learning from those mistakes is why I’m here helping others navigate life and their relationship with their own dogs. I have experienced stress, embarrassment, resentment, doubt, shame and probably any other ‘negative’ emotion you could imagine in my journey with my Grimm Pack. Owning a dog (or a small pack of dogs, heh) was not as easy I thought it would be. My love for my dogs and desire to find answers has led me on an incredible journey. I invite you to take this journey with us. Let’s go through the good, the bad and the ugly together and come out on the other side stronger and empowered. The lessons our dogs teach us last a lifetime.

Private Training

Every dog, family, and situation is different. Sigh of Relief will work with you to create a plan that is personalized to what you, your dog, and your family need. Common challenges we address include:

  • Pulling, barking and/or lunging on walks

  • "My dog doesn't listen!"

  • Barking out the window

  • Door Bolting

  • Jumping on guests

  • Inability to relax
