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.

    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:

    - Head Trainer for Paws Humane Society in Pierre, SD
    - Head Trainer for Lane Logan Memorial Foundation
    - Better Business Bureau Rating A+
