Krysten Lieske

Hi, I'm Krysten!
I have lived all up and down the west coast from San Diego to Vancouver, BC. In 2011 I heard about a wonderful place called Portland and I fell in love with it as soon as I arrived, especially because there are so many dogs here! I started my journey with animals volunteering at a wildlife refuge in high school and began working with dogs in college. Through working at several dog daycares, as a dog walker and sitter, and as a veterinary assistant, I developed a deep interest in how their curious minds work. I decided to learn to be a trainer so I can help dogs and their humans better understand each other and live happier lives together. I am so excited to be Kate's apprentice and I look forward to meeting you and your pup!
