Karli Nelson- Owner and Head Trainer
I started working at a major pet store chain in 2000. It was a great start and really discovered that training was my passion. Over the years my career changed and obedience training was something I did on the side. Obedience training means just that, the basic commands, sit, stay, down, etc… Then I found myself owning a deaf pit with resource guarding and leash reactivity… None of the skills I had in my “obedience” toolbox were going to help me with this dog. So I did what I had to and sought out help from the best. I reached out to the best trainers that I knew, and then started studying with some of the best trainers in the country. I learned how to help dog with behavior modification. And then I quickly realized that these behavior modification skills were so much more of what my clients needed.
Life happened and I made the decision that I really wanted to follow my passion and that helping others train their dog needed to be more than a side gig. I decided to pursue training full time so I could help as many people and save as many dogs as I can. So here we are, Canine Cahoots
