Like most of us growing up, Kristen has ALWAYS had a love for dogs. Being around dogs her whole life, it was a dream to make this interest a lifestyle and career. Originally from America, Kristen arrived in Australia and almost immediately started collecting dogs, which lead to training and realizing how to carve a place in the dog industry. Passionate about training people about how to train dogs, turns out that Kristen’s stand-out dog experiences are actually around watching owners achieve their own definition of “success” with their dogs. 

Salty Pack takes extreme care and diligence when dealing with dog and handler duos, making sure to recognise that all dogs and all people learn differently and utilising all tools available in the “tool kit” with training, grooming, and house and pet sitting.



House/Pet Sitting

“We have had many experiences with dog trainers for my two strong-willed staffies and Kristen is a complete breath of fresh air. During their weekly walk and trains, we receive updates, feedback, and photos after each session. I feel beyond confident that my dogs are safe, well handled, and well-loved when they’re with her!”

“We thought to give Kristen a challenge to work on impulse control with Winnie the bouncy boxer. In the first couple sessions, we noticed a HUGE improvement in her behaviour and focus! This has given us far more confidence to take Winnie to busy places. We’re looking forward to continuing the training with Kristen and the Salty Pack.”


“Kristen has looked after Penny our Wolfhound x Border Collie multiple times and we’re always happy. The way Penny is excited every time Kristen is there shows how much she loves her!”
