Kate takes her dog, Frankie, wherever she is legally allowed and has a passion to see more people do the same. As an avid outdoors-woman, she and Frankie have backpacked 500+ miles together, spent at least a month in the canoe, have driven across the country, and more. They’ve seen bear, moose, and even a wolf in the wild. From the everyday to the extraordinary, their experiences with one another are what inspire the heart and mission of Cahoots Dog Training: To help you and your dog “Explore life together.”In addition to offering standard pet training programs, Kate specializes in adventure-specific training and prep so you can fully embrace your favorite outdoor recreation by including your best friend. Just like your interests are unique to you, the adventure training is entirely customized to your activity needs and goals.
