Kelley McAtee’s passion for helping animals began in college when she studied animals in society. After years of volunteering with animal rescue groups, building a non-profit for animal welfare and working as a pet sitter and walker, McAtee decided to start her own dog training business. Her own struggle with finding satisfactory aid in training her ill-behaved dogs had a huge impact on McAtee finding her Dharma as the owner of the hugely successful dog training business, Dharma Dog Training.
