Kait Seyal, CPDT-KA, knows what it means to bring the dogs along. With over 20 years of of animal care and handling experience and thousands of miles of traveling with dogs in tow, she’s learned how to hit the road with a car full of canine travel companions. As a certified professional dog trainer, she also knows how to do it responsibly, always putting safety and courtesy first.
She has traveled extensively throughout the US – by car, plane, and on foot – with her own dogs, fosters, and dogs in training, always looking for the places that allow well-mannered dogs. Trips to the park, dining out, vacations, work, and even her honeymoon have been planned to ensure the dogs would be welcome. She’s learned a thing or two along the way that she’s ready to share with you.
Kait is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed with the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, a Supporting Member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants in the Working Animals Division, a Canine Training Professional Member of the Pet Professionals Guild, a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, and a recommended trainer and board member of WAGS Pet Therapy of Kentucky.
