Kristie Niemi


Kristie has been involved with all things DOG since 1993. She got hooked on obedience training
and competition with her first dog, which led to therapy dog work, which led to agility training
and competition, which led to teaching, which led to service dog training. Kristie has earned
numerous obedience and agility titles on her dogs over the years, but her true passion is
helping others. She considers herself more of a people trainer than a dog trainer.

Kristie has worked with all breeds, mixes and temperaments of dogs, and uses positive
motivation to help owners build strong relationships with their dogs. She feels training should
be fun for the dog, as well as the handler!

Kristie is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, an AKC Canine Good Citizen
evaluator, and a Tester/Observer for the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. She also has experience
working with dogs with disabilities, such as deafness.
