Morgan Krug

Dog Behavior Consultant and Trainer & AIC Teacher

Morgan is a Professional Dog Trainer of 17 years with a BS in Psychology and a lifetime appreciation of cats. While primarily specializing in Dog Behavior Consulting as a CBCC-KA working with anxious dogs, the ‘cat distribution system’ delivered Jasper as a feral kitten and Morgan’s interest in feline behavior was renewed. Three years ago, Morgan began teaching buttons to her herding dogs as well as Jasper, then blind and chronically ill. Morgan created a custom ‘kitty-braille’ system of textures to assist  Jasper’s soundboard navigation, and is excited to help you unlock your own unique learner’s potential!
