Kat Kelly


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 was accepted into the Philly Unleashed internship program, where she practiced positive reinforcement techniques and learned training theory through working the dogs at Farmcamp and assisting group classes. Kat is proud to have recently joined the amazing team of instructors for Philly Unleashed, and especially loves helping new puppy owners figure out nuisance behavior problems and work through the more difficult parts of puppy training. 

Kat lives in Bryn Mawr, PA, with her German Shorthaired Pointer, Inga.
