David Ketterer

certified professional dog trainer / owner

As a graduate of Wharton Business School, most of my professional life has been spent developing and starting small businesses. However, I have worked, trained, and titled dogs for most of my life both in AKC and Schutzhund. While attending the Tom Rose School, I was awarded the certification of professional trainer and graduated first in class in all scoring requirements. Training dogs is my life and I am very happy to make it my career.

Certifications Include: Basic Pet Obedience, Advanced Pet Obedience, Puppy Imprinting, Competition Obedience, Retrieves, Agility, Narcotics and Scent Detection, Tracking, Behavior Modification/ Stopping Unwanted Behavior, Protection / Certified Schutzhund USA helper, and President / Helper Greater Houston Schutzhund Club.

Andrea Ketterer

kennel manager / owner

I have been an animal lover my entire life. Growing up with 5 brothers and sisters and a mother who loved animals there were always furry-family members in our home. Our animals included cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, birds, turtles and gerbils. I am currently the proud mom of 7 dogs and 1 cat: Rommel, Katy, Tessa, Kiki, Xot, Simi, Snitch and Simon Kitty. Rest assured your dog will be loved, pampered and be boarded in a clean and safe environment. My former career as a retail-executive also has taught me the importance of customer service. This dedication to provide outstanding service will make your experience with Circle K9 enjoyable and rewarding.

trainer

I have been a huge animal lover my entire life. During high school I was very involved with FFA (Future Farmers of America). I raised and showed pigs, goats and cows. I won 1st place in judging livestock, won showmanship and was also the secretary for the local chapter. I have always loved dogs, and have been raised around them. I currently have 3 dogs a Blue Heeler, German Shepherd and a Rottweiler. Simply being around animals makes me happy! I was born and raised in the Great State of Texas, and a true country girl at heart. Working here at Circle K9 is simply not a job, it is a lifestyle, and I love it!! Rest assured I will take the best care of your dog and give them all the love and affectionate, like they are my own.
