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!

Update from Kate: Unfortunately for me, Krysten has moved to Corvallis Oregon. However she has opened her own dog training business and is ready to serve clients in the land south of Portland! Check out
