Meet the Team
Bob Dietrich, CPDT-KA
Certified Dog Trainer
Bob has been with ADGTK since late 2017. He became interested in dog training after fostering rescued dogs. The challenges of seeing dogs with complicated behavior problems, fear, and reactive issues led him to learn and train exclusively with non-aversive, reward based methods.
Bob has his CPDT-KA (Certified Pet Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed) certification from the Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers and has completed the Master Course for Aggression in Dogs. He is continuing his education through more classes and webinars.
He is available to assist clients with basic behavior training as well as most fear and reactivity issues.
Bob retired in 2021after 33 years of service as a full-time Fire Fighter and Paramedic with the City of Kent. His wife is a retired school teacher and his son is a Music Therapist. They have three dogs (all rescues). They enjoy taking camping trips with their dogs whenever they can.
Tovah Lynn, CTC
Certified Behavior Consultant
Tovah joined the ADGTK team in 2022 and is an honors graduate of Academy for Dog Trainers, earning her CTC in February, 2017. She has her Bachelor’s Degree in International Business from The University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She also has experience in dog boarding and day care.
Tovah’s inspiration for further her education in dog aggression came when she rescued Den, who struggled with stranger danger. Tovah’s struggle to find competent help for Den in their time of need fuels Tovah’s passion for helping fearful and reactive dogs and their owners get the relief they need. As a trainer, she enjoys helping people and dogs regain their bond with each other.
Outside of dogs, Tovah works as a transformational coach and facilitator, helping people. She and her daughter enjoy taking Den on hikes in the Ozark Mountains.
Jenifer Reed, CPDT-KA
Certified Dog Trainer
Jenifer got her start in animal sheltering and spent many years helping homeless pets during their journey toward finding new homes. In this environment she gained experience with dogs of all types—some with challenging histories, some just struggling to cope with the shelter environment. She has a particular passion for helping rambunctious dogs and their human companions.
In addition to training dogs, Jenifer works in the animal welfare field, supporting animal shelters across the country with their life-saving initiatives. She and her husband spend their free time hiking with their two dogs and cuddling with their two kitties.

Kelly has a wealth of knowledge about dogs and training, both the theory and the practice. She is also an honors graduate of The Academy for Dog Trainers,
where she works as a mentor and social media manager.

Rexanna is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science and a minor in Psychology. Her educational background sparked her interest in animal behavior, and her love for dogs inspired her to want to understand them better.
She developed a passion for training while working with her own puppy in 2016, and quickly fell in love with the world of dog training and dog sports. She has experience in dog daycare, pet sitting, agility, and nosework. Her years of experience in dog daycare have helped her to be familiar with many different breeds and temperaments.
She loves working with new, and experienced pet parents, to help them better communicate with their dogs. Her areas of focus are the fundamentals of training and early learning, obtained through a reinforcement based, progressive training plan.
She enjoys spending her free time with her husband and their two Boxers. They enjoy the outdoors, and also a quiet night in, cuddled up with their dogs.
