She is a PCT-A, Professional Canine Trainer Accredited through the Pet Professional Accreditation Board. The Accreditation Board  offers the only Accredited Training Technician & Professional Canine Trainer certification for professionals who believe there is no place for shock, choke, prong, pain, force or fear in pet training and behavior practices. Kimberley is also a current VSA student in the process of obtaining her VSA-CDT. Additionally she is certified as a Fear Free Veterinary Technician and Trainer and has her HABRI (Human Animal Bond Research Institute) certification.

What do these certifications mean? Certifications like these mean that a trainers skills have been evaluated by highly regarded trainers, veterinarians, and industry professionals to meet an ideal industry standard in humane and positive training and care. These evaluations include videos of the candidates teaching technique and knowledge/skill assessments. ANY trainer you chose to work with should be able to show you certifications or accreditations. As there is no national standard for dog trainers literally anyone can decide to become a dog trainer overnight, seeking a certified trainer lets you know they have been evaluated and have the skills necessary to aid you in your training journey.
