Kelsey Rich began her dog training career in 2014 when she was hired by a large dog training academy in Austin Texas where she earned her Level 1 Trainer’s Certification. In this role she focused on basic through advanced obedience, facilitating purposeful playgroups, and managing “stress-less” boarding. In 2015, she found herself back in Philadelphia and joined the Philly Unleashed Team.
Kelsey has a special talent for reading canine body language and facilitating learning, even through high levels of distraction. Kelsey also loves teaching owners why their dogs exhibit common nuisance behaviors and communicating with owners how to work through these in an effective and positive manner.
Kelsey holds a dual degree in Sociology and Psychology from Rutgers University, and is passionate about continuing education. Kelsey plans to sit for her CCPDT certification in the Spring of 2016. Kelsey currently lives in Philadelphia with her rescued dog, Roswell and her cat, Pietro. In her spare time, Kelsey loves running, and crafting. She and her boyfriend just recently bought and are fixing up a project house.
