Kim is one of our newer members of LBDTC where she is currently a training assistant for the Beginner/Advanced Obedience classes. Kim got her start at LBDTC completing obedience classes and obtaining CGC certifications for her dogs.

Kim’s love for animals began at an early age first in the show arena with her horses, then onto training both Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds in horse racing. Although her passion for horses continued, she began competing with her Labradors and Golden Retrievers in AKC confirmation and breed competition events, also winning the 1992 Golden Retriever Eastern Grand Futurity with her golden Bailey.

Kim has many years of experience working in both confirmation and obedience and is currently pursuing her love of agility competition with her Australian Labradoodle Cosmo. She received her licensure as a certified veterinary technician working in emergency veterinary medicine at the University of PA veterinary school and the VSEC clinic In Levittown, PA.

Kim’s approach to training both the handler and dog is through encouragement and positive reinforcement to help them achieve their training goals in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
