My little farm in northern Illinois became the place where dog moms brought their dogs after having gone through what they described as “a million trainers and training methods that didn’t work”.
For 25+ years, dogs with the biggest, most baffling behaviors (often referred to me by trainers, behaviorists and veterinarians who ran out of ideas for how to help their struggling clients) — were whole heartedly welcomed here because I:
•Understand what even the most sensitive dogs, and those with the most difficult histories, need to feel safe and able to blossom into their true potential. These dogs make perfect sense to me. And their dog moms do too.
•Developed a deep tool box full of holistic tools that actually work in real life, with real dogs and real dog moms who are trying to do right by their dogs.
•Am fiercely committed to empathy, empowerment and a life of feeling safe, connected and happy — for all of us.
•Knew that these dogs were grossly misunderstood and crying for help in the only way they could, with their escalating behavior. And time after time, hundreds of times, I was blessed to witness transformations of these dogs alongside the brilliant women who loved them.
In this first live training, I’ll introduce you to what it means to be a dog mom on the Hero’s Journey…guiding you to understand the root causes of reactive behavior and what it takes to break free of that cycle. You’ll discover that today’s dog moms are building their relationships with their dogs differently – in a more loving, kind and consensual way that is simple, and that works in real life.
As Stephen Covey famously said, “Begin with the End in Mind.” And that’s exactly what we are going to do…
Get clear on what trust between a dog mom and her dog is REALLY, so that you can stop the trust leaks that lead to more and more reactive, anxious, difficult behavior.
By the time you finish this first workshop:
Like Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin man, and the Lion discover, what you need is already within you but it can get buried, lost or forgotten along the many paths you have traveled so far with your dog.
You’ll discover how to navigate through the common relationship and miscommunication struggles that cause worry, stress and difficult behavior. We’re going to break down the three core needs that you and your dog must have met in order to truly thrive, and the actual plan that will make that happen.
You’ll discover how to tap into the ‘powers’ you and your dog already innately have to overcome your most pressing behavior challenge. And any other challenges too!
At this workshop:
Home is where the heart is, and for real: ‘there’s no place like home’. Day 3 is all about mapping your personalized journey to the beautiful Emerald City where you’ll find your own magic slippers and make your way home again, where all your heart-dreams can come true.
We’re going to bring it all together into your own customized RoadMap that guides you to “walk in partnership” with your dog through all five partnership stages using the Tree of Trust framework, and the RAPID Results formula.
At the end of this third workshop, you’ll walk away with:
I've been building partnerships with my dogs for a lifetime. Puppies I've raised, adults I've rescued, dogs that no one wanted and dogs that were said to be 'untrainable' and hopeless.
Each and every dog was a blessing, and ALL of my dogs became amazing companions, world-class partners in dog sports like agility and herding, and the best teachers ever!
25+ years of working professionally with over 2800 dogs and their families in over 30 countries around the world has taught me sooooo much! I've put together the exact ingredients that create a trusting, loving, attentive and responsive relationship with a dog ... instead of one built on transactions, unable to stand up to ordinary challenges of modern life.
This free Journey to Partnership challenge workshop is your first step to a life of harmony and delight with your dog.
I am eager to be your guide and help you get started! My mission is to help a million dog moms and their dogs become brilliant partners, so I hope you take advantage of this free workshop - it's my gift to you!!For the love of dogs,

"After being kicked out of obedience class, I found Kathy Kawalec. Instead of focusing on obedience and training, we breathed a sigh of relief and began focusing on appreciating each other and observing and listening to each other. Life since is a daily delight with my girl!”
