Kiem Sie

By

Kiem is a SAPT, certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA), and behaviour consultant who has been working across two sectors for over a decade: animal welfare and higher education. Her journey into dog training started when she rescued her dog Bimo who was running on the streets of Oakland. This led her into the world of sheltering, starting as a volunteer, then board member, and then trainer and behaviour consultant. Her next dog, Leo is a foster fail and suffered from separation anxiety. Kiem’s experiences with her dog and other dogs suffering from SA in and out of shelters was the spark for her interest in helping dogs develop comfort with being alone. In addition to her dog training business, Kiem serves as the Operations Director for two non-profit organizations: Shelter Playgroup Alliance (SPA) and Humane Dog Training Advocates (HDTA). SPA provides animal welfare organizations with education, tailorable guidelines, and support materials for developing and implementing comprehensive enrichment programs. Humane Dog Training Advocates (HDTA) promotes modern, positive, humane, and science-based dog training methods through education and advocacy. Through education and support, HDTA hopes that fewer dogs are relinquished to shelters.

Not only do I love dogs, but I care about their people too! I know how frustrating and helpless you can feel when your dog’s behavior makes your life difficult. I am passionate about using my dog training and behavior knowledge to help you improve your life, as well as improve the well-being of your dog. I have worked with countless dogs and their owners over the last 20 years helping them with manners training, as well as counseling on behavior concerns. After working with me, my clients and their dogs are able to enjoy their relationship, and my clients have tools they can use to problem solve future dog-related issues. My certification as a Separation Anxiety Professional gives me the expertise to help clients whose dogs are suffering from owner absences. I am able to help clients that are desperate to get their lives back from dogs that cannot be left alone without experiencing panic.

I found my calling while photographing adoptable dogs for local rescues in 2013. Intrigued by the challenge of helping the dogs feel comfortable for the camera, I started studying canine behaviour and soon adopted Zoe Moo – one of the dogs I had photographed. I created DOG IS RIGHT to help worried dogs and their stressed people. I work primarily with separation-related behaviours whether that is anxiety, frustration, boredom, fear, or a combination of the above. Whatever the reason your dog is not able to relax while home alone and you are consumed with stress from dealing with the aftermath of their panic moments – we work together to help your dog learn that absences are safe so you can go about your life while they snooze. Thanks to all the lessons from Moo I am especially drawn to the ‘worried’ dogs with endless patience to help their people speak dog more fluently so they can communicate better and navigate the world confidently together. My special interests include social play, fear & aggression, practical enrichment solutions, and training games. I live in Vancouver, WA with my husband, three dogs, and a rotating crew of special fosters from Humane Society for Southwest Washington.
