About Kevin and Kelly

 

Kevin and Kelly own and operate All Dogs Go To Kevin. They both found their way to professional dog training when working with their own dogs on reactivity, which left them with an insatiable desire to help other dogs and their people on the same path. Kevin earned his CPDT-KA in 2012 and opened ADGTK that same year. He currently continues his professional development by attending the world-renowned Academy for Dog Trainers, an institution widely regarded as the “Harvard for Dog Trainers.” 

Kelly received her CTC from The Academy in 2013, and began working as the Behavior and Training Manager at the Louisiana SPCA that same year. She currently coaches and mentors students and works on several other projects at The Academy, in addition to her work at ADGTK.
