A Loyal Companion - About
Home About Services Contact


We believe that one of life’s greatest pleasures is living with a dog. It can be one of the longest relationships we’ll experience and one with many challenges, including the language barrier. Our responsibilities to our dogs include love, structure, and the highest quality of life we’re able to provide.

At A Loyal Companion, we believe the foundation of this relationship is respect, communication and trust. Activities such as massage and training create opportunities for you to build a deeper relationship with your dog and give him the best chance at a long, happy and healthy life.

Harley is the inspiration for A Loyal Companion. A handsome and stubborn hound mix, he has a mind of his own and isn’t afraid to use it. And that’s what makes me love him. His loyalty, trust, respect and never-ending supply of silly grins adds an element to my life that nothing else could. It’s a feeling everyone should experience and I launched A Loyal Companion to help others to build deep and meaningful relationships with their dogs.

Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure Massage Although Harley provided years of unofficial training, my formal training was completed at the Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage (www.rmsaam.com) in Littleton, Colorado. This nationally-recognized program is fully accredited and regulated by the Colorado Department of Higher Education, Division of Private Occupational Schools. Because education is a life-long process, I dedicate at least 5 hours per week to learning more about massage techniques, canine learning, canine communication and other dog-related subjects.

Community service is also an important element of A Loyal Companion. Harley and I visit the Pima County Juvenile Detention Center on behalf of Gabriel’s Angels (www.gabrielsangels.org). Our work with this great non-profit provides healing pet therapy to abused, neglected and at-risk kids. Our goal is to break the cycle of violence by helping kids experience trust, feel empathy and show compassion. I encourage you to get involved with this great organization.

I hope you enjoy working with us. We enjoy sharing what we know and watching you build a stronger bond with your dog.

"My 8 year-old golden retriever had
developed a tightness in her rear body, causing her some pain and shortening of her stride. It was obvious that the muscles in her back had tightened up to compensate for the pain. After a single session with Kate I saw a noticeable relaxation in Siena's tightened muscles and a more normal range of motion. I am so pleased with the service from Kate Titus and A Loyal Companion and am especially thrilled that Siena is improving so rapidly."
