About Us


Kristy Houck, CCDT

Kristy has been working professionally with dogs and their owners since 2012. She is a member of Pet Sitters International, National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, and the International Association of Canine Professionals. She is an American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizens (CGC) evaluator. Furthermore, through the Red Cross, Kristy is certified in dog CPR and First Aid.

Through her work as the owner of Beyond Barks, a pet sitting company, Kristy saw a need within her clients for guidance with training and behavior modification. This need launched a drive within her and she enrolled with Catch Canine Academy and graduated in 2015. Subsequently, she started her dog training company, Consistent Canine. Kristy's  primary focus is on training pet dogs.   Additionally, she has mentored with a service dog trainer for many years.  In 2017 Kristy trained and placed her first mobility assistance and cardiac alert service dog. 

Kristy regularly attends conferences to further her knowledge of training techniques. Kristy along with her two dogs Clutch and Asscher are members of the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program and enjoy volunteering in a variety of settings. She has co-directed an animal-assisted therapy program at a day program for persons with disabilities.

Once you’ve had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.
