Meet a NH Dog and Cat Trainer

I love learning about and connecting with small businesses in the community, especially pet related!  When Katie, a dog and cat trainer located in southern NH, reached out to me about doing photos for her website, I was excited to learn more about her and what she does!  
Her longtime dream has been to work with animals and after a career in the Air Force, she’s making her dreams a reality.  

Katie is the owner of Petrichor Gardens Animal Behavior Services.  She specializes in dog and cat training and behavior services in southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. Her training methods are reward based, focusing on positive reinforcement and strengthening the bond between pet and owner. 

When Katie reached out to me she was interested in a professional “headshot” of her and her dog, Zoe, as well as photos for her business.  She was flexible on locations and I gave her a few ideas of places I love to photograph.  When I mentioned Winnekenni Castle in Haverhill, Katie was thrilled!  She LOVES castles!  And I’m always in disbelief that I have a beautiful castle just 15 minutes from where I live. 

The morning we planned to meet, it snowed.  YAY!  This was going to be PERFECT!  Katie’s branding colors include a beautiful blue that would complement snow images nicely.  

When Katie and Zoe arrived, I was in love – with both mom’s amazing hair AND Zoe’s pink tutu!  These two make an amazing team and we had a blast in the snow!  

Here are some images from our adventure:

Katie loves the pictures and we are working them into her website. We have plans to photograph her cat for the website in the near future – I can’t wait for that!

  1. I always love a pitty in a dress and I can’t believe you have a castle near you?!?! That’s awesome. I love meeting other small local businesses too. It’s so nice to support each other.

  2. Love all the shots especially the 2nd & 3rd. Castle in the background shot with the snow really shows off Katie & Zoe colors. Glad to read that she is also a AF Veteran. It’s good to see that you are connecting with other smaller businesses and that Katie chose you to do the photography for her business.

Tell me what you think!
