Katie Stoll is the founder and owner of Training That Clicks! Katie believes that passion drives success, and behind every successful Canine, there’s a person who’s passionate about aiding in that success. That’s where Katie comes in! As an avid dog lover from a young age, she has spent her entire life dedicated to studying and understanding more about man (or woman’s!) best friend, and the extraordinary influence that dogs have on our own lives. Her mission is to change the way people look at dog training, and redefine obedience.
Immediately after High School, Katie began her career as a Professional Dog Trainer. After 9 years of training dogs and their humans at a big box retail store, she embarked on her journey as the owner and lead trainer of Training That Clicks! Along the way, she has continued to remain up to date on the most recent positive reinforcement training methods and techniques, and also continues her education through attending training seminars and conferences, such as clicker expo, and is a member of the Association of Peg Dog Trainers (APDT.) To further educate herself in the world of dog sports, she has begun formal agility training with her own dogs, as well as achieving trick titles with them.
When she is not helping clients, Katie has also been volunteering with the non-profit organization Freedom Dogs for over four years. As a trainer who helps raise, and train service dogs for wounded warriors returning with PTSD, Traumatic brain injuries, and mobility issues, Katie has gained the experience and knowledge to help others develop that same trust and exceptional bond with their own pet dog. While she has a special place in her heart for working dogs, Katie also specializes in early socialization as well as working with reactive and fearful dogs. Recently, she also began volunteering at a local rescue as a home evaluator. Katie has also worked with and trained other species of animals such as cats, pigs, and has even begun clicker training her chickens!
