about us

Katie Charvitur Hilmer has a B.S in Psychology and a Certification in Applied Animal Behavior from Washington University. She is currently working on a Master of Social Work for Animal Assisted Therapy and Licensed Clinical Social Work (LCSW).

Kate has been training or working with animals since starting as a volunteer at Zoo Montana at the age of 14. She has been training dogs with reward-based methods since starting at PetSmart in in Billings, Montana in 2001.

Her, her husband James Hilmer, and her step children have a ranch called 120 Acre Wood with a YouTube channel for what is planned to be an off-grid life. They are hoping to get moved out to the ranch in 2019 after plans were temporarily interrupted.

Kate has a spinal disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis and so must work at the business very part-time but feels fortunate to have a supportive family that help with the ranch and the business as needed. At one time she traveled across the country and to other countries to pursue her dog training, dog showing, and other animal behavior related goals.

Pet-sitting at your home, boarding dogs at the Hilmer home, and dog walking is done a few hours per day and especially for those clients whose dogs do not do well in a regular boarding facility or for the busy dog owner whose dog needs a little more attention some days.

Kate has just listed classes on Outschool for kids. These online classes include dog training, potty training information, raising chickens, careers with animals, and how to run a pet-sitting or dog walking business. All topics are available to anyone as an online Zoom conference or in person lesson. More training will be posted on YouTube very soon as the virtual classroom gets started and more dog training classes will soon be offered online.

Check back soon for the online store as new dog training and behavior merchandise is rolling in an will soon be posted for sale, along videos on how to use each item.

Puppy Training

Are you getting your first puppy and need help with absolutely everything? There is a package program that includes online or in person training, regular text messages to answer questions, and phone calls whenever you are just not sure what to do next.


Grooming is not something that we do much of but we will groom dogs who just do not do well at the groomers. Some dogs are just too stressed to go to the groomer or have behavior problems and have been asked not to return. Kate can handle these dogs without medication or lots of stress.
