Kate Thornton

K9 Trainer

A lifelong collie person who also has had a Newfoundland and a beloved mix. Kate’s life with dogs has been an education from, “I tell the dog what to do”, to “Let’s learn this together!”. Kate started her serious dog training in Rally Obedience at Leashes and Leads in 2009 and it remains one of her favorite dog training & competing activities. Kate trains in Rally, Obedience, Agility and Herding. Kate loves traveling to dog shows and seminars for competition and education, but sharing what she knows with students (dog teams!) is her passion.
