Frequently Asked Questions
We are always happy to personally answer any questions that do not appear below.

Having a pet is a great experience for children, teaching them responsibility and empathy, and giving them a great deal of fun and happiness in the process. But parents should oversee all pet care, even when older children and teens are involved. Pets are not toys and shouldn’t be made to suffer if your child forgets to perform a daily task.

Bringing an animal into a household with children makes it that much more important to get the right dog or cat from the outset, and to have a plan for integrating your new pet into your family.

Katherine Andrews Animal Behaviorist
Animal Psychology Center in Philip, South Dakota, is a pet psychology center owned by animal behaviorist and trainer, Katherine Andrews. Services and training are available in Rapid City, SD, and many desperate owners have traveled in from other states for her specialized expertise.

My passion is to train and rehabilitate dogs with behavioral issues. Some even call me a "dog whisperer" thanks to my ability to work through particularly tough behavior problems and help with aggressive dogs, even when other trainers have failed and owners have nearly given up.

Through my early love for animals, I developed it into a lifetime career and commitment. Backed with 20 years of animal training experience, I take pride in making life better for people and pets through my animal psychology services.
