I started training professionally in 2013, and have worked for and with most of the local trainers in Northwest Indiana. (Feel free to ask for a resume.) I hired many in my early years to teach me how to work with my own aggressive pit bull. These hands on learning experiences and mentorships have been life changing. In 2015, after earning my CPDT-KA from the only independant certification council in the country (CCPDT.org), I opened Andrea Kutzko Dog Training to provide in home behavioral services for families like mine. It was a dream come true to support and help so many families.
