Gene and Kinna Öhman-Leone have been avid animal lovers and outdoor adventurers since they were youngsters. In 2013, they created Mountain Hooves & Paws to offer general positive reinforcement clicker training for animals – especially dogs & horses.

Both Kinna and Gene began an in-depth study of the philosophies and science of clicker training in late 2012. Their dogs and horses responded to the positive, force-free methods and principles with true enthusiasm. Gene and Kinna were convinced! They decided that Kinna should be the first to continue on with the training. In July 2015, Kinna became a Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Certified Training Partner (CTP) under the guidance of faculty member Emma Parsons. Gene soon followed with his own certification as a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner in May 2016.
