The PACKFIT Academy was created to educate, inform, inspire and empower. After all, we can’t lead, guide and way-show an animal of a different species unless we understand how. We’re incredibly passionate about reaching and teaching the human end of the leash, so they can show up as more confident, equipped and grounded versions of themselves. Becoming the type of leader and provider their dogs need them to be.

Interview with Kimberly Artley / "Unleash Your Dog" International Dog Training and Behavior Telesummit

I was asked to take part in an extraordinary Dog Training and Behavior Telesummit event hosted by the lovely Cameron Thompson of Home 2K9. It was an incredible and most inspiring event with some of the industry’s most influential change-agents, and – I’m proud to say – started some much-needed conversations about dog training and behavior, and inspired some magnificent shifts between dog and human.

This is my interview; in it, I talk about my journey into this line of work, the Pack Fit Approach, Nutrition, Dog Psychology and Behavior, and more.

Please enjoy, and my hope is some valuable seeds will be planted and helpful insight is gained : )
