Services & Rates
After a free consultation, we will provide a detailed quote to address your unique pet issues.

Katherine welcomes and appreciates phone calls. In fact, she begins every consultation with a phone call to get further details to help her fully understand your pet(s) and your family's situation before providing a final quote. She will gather information about other pets in the home, behavioral issues of the "problem pet" as well as interactions among all of the pets, children, family lifestyle, recent family household changes (i.e. new pet, new baby) or changes to routine, etc. Please be sure to include your phone number when you contact Animal Psychology Center.

  • Dog Socialization – Preparing your dog for dog parks or doggy daycare.
  • Working with Pets and Children; Pets and New Baby – Help with integrating kids and pets; deciding on children’s roles in pet care and training. Intervention where pets are reacting negatively to a new baby in the household.
  • Bridging Multi-Pet Households – Creating harmony in households with multiple pets.

Selecting the right animal (dogs) from the outset is very important. Whether you are purchasing an animal or adopting from a shelter, I can help you find a healthy animal that is a good fit for your temperament, lifestyle, home environment, family, and special needs.

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.

Qualifications:

- Certified Trainer, American Kennel Club, Canine Good Citizen Pet Partners
- Head Trainer for Lane Logan Memorial Foundation
- Better Business Bureau Rating A+
