After decades of working with dogs and their people in the southeastern MA and beyond community, we have closed Maplewood Dog to pursue other passions in the nonprofit sector. It has been a great pleasure and opportunity to work with and support the behavior change goals of so many over the years. Please use the Consultant Locator tool at to locate one of our qualified Dog Behavior Consultant or Trainer colleagues in your local area.  Thank you!

Our mission is to provide the highest quality evidence-based dog behavior consulting that enhances the canine-human relationship and bond through education, communication, understanding, and compassion.

Baxter the Black Labrador Retriever"I was very nervous about even trying agility, but done with Katrin's knowledge and focus on safety - I am crazy glad we tried it. Baxter LOVES it, though we do not compete, we could, because of Katrin's pro training. It is awesome to keep Baxter's huge brain and athletic body in shape.  Not to mention FUN. My husband will even volunteer to come to class when football games are on!  Katrin is truly one of a kind and I would not waste my time on any other trainer!  I highly recommend Katrin's training to everyone I meet." - Sandy B., Wrentham, MA

Silky Terrier running through a tunnel"Katrin has helped me with the training of my  two Silky Terriers, a Toy Poodle and a Mini Poodle in agility and some obedience.  My dogs all have different personalities and Katrin seems to know just what each dog needs to excel in whatever they are  training in.  Her classes are fun for both dog and handler with lots of positive reinforcement.  What I really have appreciated is Katrin really cares about all the dogs she works with and works hard with their handlers to make training fun and rewarding.  Thank you Katrin!" - Marie M., Wrentham, MA
