About Kirsten Bailey

Kirsten Bailey grew up on the Peninsula in the Bay Area and is The Calm Dog, LLC, founder, owner and canine behavior expert. Kirsten has trained dogs and horses for her entire life and has many years of equine and canine training experience. Kirsten recognizes temperament, disposition and drive in all breeds but focuses on training family pet dogs with a balanced training approach. Kirsten is passionate about optimizing a dog’s potential and she has the skill, temperament and expertise to train even the most difficult dog.

Kirsten currently owns one Australian Sheep Dog but has owned two Belgian Malinois in the past. She plans to get another Belgian Malinois soon.

Because of Kirsten’s long international competition career with hoses, she was long-listed for the Olympic Team in 2006 and 2007. She has, however, decided to retire from the horse world and focus solely on helping families and their dogs to get along.BADW_Cover_small
