Katey follows a minimally or least intrusive, empowerment ethos to all animals and owners she works with. This method is competence based requiring the professional to work with positive reinforcement and eliminate the use of punishment when working with the animal and the owner. All professionals adhering to this code are required to continually educate themselves pursuing and maintaining their own competence to ensure adequate application. Katey regularly attends events and conferences to keep her knowledge up to date.
In addition, Katey is governed by strict codes of conduct by the organisations she is a member of. Katey keeps up to date with the most recent scientific developments and works closely with veterinarians. Katey is recommended by many in the local area.
