Reeds K9 Training was started by Kristina in 2020 to help the local dog community in North Dakota. ​Kristina got her start in dog training in 2012 working with aggressive dogs that where on death row. Through this work, Kristina found her passion for helping dogs who had behavioral and aggressive issues. After completeing her dog training certification in 2013 through Pen Foster, she continued her education by becoming a certified behavior & aggression trainer in 2015 and has continued training. She recently went back to school at North American Veterinary Community to complete her pet nutrition coaching certification. Kristina is passionate about helping dog owners build a strong relationship with their dogs and take the dream of the Ultimate Family Dog and bring it to life.​​ Kristina's passion for dogs can be seen in the way she trains; she knows every dog is different and adjusts as needed. Kristina focuses on a balanced approach to training to encourage a strong relationship between dog & owner. 

When Kristina isnt out helping clients with their dogs you can find her and her husband down on the Kenai fishing with their shepherds, in the back woods hunting or up in the mountains hiking.
