Beginning with training, walking, boarding & volunteering with shelters to achieve her dreams of owning her own shelter. She is focused & driven, while still giving each pup in her care all of her time & energy to ensure she lives up to her own personal motto of “doin’ it for the dogs”.

The Personal Paws Faculty members are a group of highly trusted and trained canine handlers. Each handler goes through a series of shadowing, mentoring, and is required to finish our educational programs provided before earning a position in our pack.

  • "I highly recommend Personal Paws LLC. Their loce of all dogs and passion for what they do is obvious and evident in all of their interations, not only with the pups but also with the pup parents. My Layla absolutely loves Kait and Lizzy! Actually, she adores all of the fabulous trainers at Personal Paws and can barely contain her excitement when they come to pick her up. I have complete confidence that Layla is not only safe with them but also having fun and learning essential skills. Can’t thank them enough!"

  • "Kait and her trainers are awesome. Our sunshine is having some issues with socializing with people. They have been working with her and us for about a month and we can not be more happy with how Sunshine is doing. Kait came to our house last week, and observed Sunshine, and gave us tips on things to help her and us I really see positive future for Sunshine. Look forward to Jimmy working with them 100% they are the best. I highly recommend them. They love what they do, and we love them."

  • "Easy process to book and prices are reasonable for the care given. Staff is helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Out two dogs and kitten were well cared for and all went very smoothly! We are able to go away with confidence that all of our pets will be content and well cared for!"

  • "As a first time dog owner Personal Paws has taught me and my boy so much. It’s so nice knowing that he is loved, well taken care of and having FUN! Dylan and Kait have such patience with crazy, stubborn boy and he learns something new every time he sees them!"
