Meet Katie

  Katie Midkiff, KPA CTP is an animal trainer in the Houston, Texas area who has attended and graduated from the distinguished Karen Pryor Academy of Animal Training and Behavior. 


  Katie graduated in May 2013 and founded Southern Paws Training in July that year. Unlike other professions, there are no mandatory requirements for education, certification, or the maintenance of professional standards. Given the serious nature of dog training, Katie chooses to take a professional stance toward ongoing education. Should you choose to work with Katie, she wants you to benefit from the very latest scientific research in and practical applications of learning theory, applied behavioral analysis, and training. And she wants you to enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you're working with a trained professional dedicated to connecting the dots between your training goals and your training results.

Katie has two dogs now, Beau and Sweetie. An 11 year old rescue from All Border Collie Rescue, and a 6 month old golden retriever. She and her husband Sky can be seen at dog shows on the weekends since they love to title their new golden retriever puppy!

Katie loves dogs and can't wait to help you! Her service area reaches Huffman, Atascocita, Crosby, Humble, Kingwood, and more!
