Founder, PetWorking Pro; Creator of the 5-T Coaching Method

Catherine Comden, B.A., CPDT-KA

Growing up with working dog handlers (police K9/Search and Rescue) Catherine learned well how to “Get lost” in the woods. The dogs kept bringing her home. After raising 4 guide dog puppies and becoming a licensed vet tech, Catherine became a professional dog trainer in 1990. After earning a bachelor degree in psychology at the University of Montana, she was a veterinary behavior technologist at Purdue University, a behavior program manager at a large, open-admissions shelter and a service dog trainer at a psychiatric hospital. She has developed and instructed prison dog training programs, kids camps and professional dog trainer courses. She has coached thousands of pet parents to reach their goals. She has coached hundreds of professional dog trainers to pass the CPDT-KA exam. Catherine has worked as a business advisor to entrepreneurs in multiple industries. Catherine believes learning is always more successful when it is fun and engaging for the humans and the dogs. Catherine is the mother of two grown men and lives in Oregon with one opinionated Australian Shepherd and a “fluffy” cat.
