About Ariana Kincaid


Ariana’s central focus, until recently, has been helping dogs and their people enjoy each other to the fullest. She is a passionate advocate of education directed at the prevention of the most commons behavioral problems that can plague our companion animals. For this reason, she specializes in working with puppies and owns two businesses that help her carry out her efforts. Through Operation Socialization she provides tools to promote safe, early and effective socialization. Through Keep It Cute Dog Training she works directly with puppies one-on-one to help them reach their full potential.


Rueben, a 7-year-old White-Bellied Caique

Her own family member, Rueben, a White-Bellied Caique has prompted her interest in parrot training and enrichment. With the help of her mentor, Pamela Clark, she is working toward adding parrot consultations to her Keep It Cute Dog Training services.

In the meantime, she will document her work with Rueben and Jazz (her foster Black-headed Caique) on this site. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about parrots.
