Kat first got a taste of the dog training world while volunteering with the behavioral department at the Pennsylvania SPCA in 2006, before attending the University of Miami to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Theater Arts.
In 2016 Kat took a dive back into dog training by being accepted into the Philly Unleashed internship program. During her internship, Kat practiced positive reinforcement techniques and learned training theory through Farmcamp and assisting group classes. Kat is proud to have recently joined the amazing team of instructors for Philly Unleashed, formerly blending her worlds of theater and training. Kat loves to help new puppy owners figure out nuisance problems and work through the more difficult parts of puppy training. Kat will be sitting her CPDT exam in the Fall of 2017.
Kat lives in Bryn Mawr, Pa with her German Short Hair puppy, Inga.
