Kylee

  • Professional Dog Trainer
  • Puppy Preschool Instructor
  • Puppy Residency Coordinator

Kylee has been a dog trainer at Kasten’s since early 2019 and in early 2020 took over our puppy preschool and residency training programs. Before coming to Kasten’s, Kylee worked at a doggie daycare facility.

The highlight of each day for Kylee is watching a dog get excited when praised for doing a command correctly. She also enjoys watching dogs progress and transform through a KDT training program.

When Kylee isn’t training dogs and working with puppies you can find her hiking, kayaking, camping, or attending concerts. She also enjoys working her own dog, Shenzi, and being with Armani, her fox. When asked, “What is the best advice you have ever received?” Kylee answered, “My mom always told me to make good choices while I was growing up and her words have been on my mind even as an adult.” If Kylee were given the chance to trade places with anyone or anything for just one day she should trade places with one of her pets because “They live such an easy life and are so spoiled!”

Kylee says, “You should have your dog trained at KDT so I can play with them! Honestly though, because everyone at Kasten’s does their best to help owners and pets achieve their training goals.”

Cami

  • Office Coordinator

Cami joined the Kasten’s Dog Training team in March of 2019 as the Front Office Coordinator.  She schedules dog training, dog boarding, appointments for dogs and humans, and answers all your questions regarding what KDT does and how we can help you.  In addition to helping dog owners, she does many behind the scene tasks and also assists with training dogs. Cami’s favorite parts of her role is organizing anything and everything, talking to people about training their dog, and helping people understand what exactly we do at KDT.

Cami’s favorite quote, “Don’t follow the path.  Go where there is not a path and begin the trail” (Ruby Bridges), nicely sums up what she enjoys outside of KDT.  Cami loves adventures, traveling, and experiencing new cultures.  Her most memorable adventures are each of her trips to the BWCA where 7 days of pure self-reliance and seclusion are just what the doctor ordered.  As a child, Cami wanted to be an astronaut and said, “I would still go into space if given the opportunity!  I would love to see Mars or Jupiter in person.  I would be all about spending years in space for the moment of discovery.”  Cami enjoys escaping in a good book and her favorite authors are John Grisham, Clive Cussler, and George R.R. Martin.

Cami says, “You should have your dog trained at Kasten’s because all dogs need mental stimulation in their life, and we can teach you how to provide that.  Your dog will be happier and healthier, and you will have a better-behaved dog!”
