About Kelly Siedhof
Kelly Siedhof is a native of Pennsylvania where she works as a freelance editor and writer, specializing in the canine training industry. Her work often includes studying the canine mind and determining innovative and effective ways to work with the dogs in our lives.
Kelly began working with dogs at the age of 2 when her family raised their first guide dog for The Seeing Eye, Inc. Odelle, a spunky German Shepherd, sunk her paws into Kelly’s heart. Granted, at 2 years old, she spent more time playing with pups than training them – but she was hooked on working with dogs! Over the next 25 years, Kelly and her family raised 15 guide dogs for The Seeing Eye.
After high school, Kelly pursued a Bachelor of Arts degree in English at West Chester University. Her writing grew deeper as she studied new ways to deliver her messages. Through a diverse curriculum, Kelly practiced writing in business settings, academic pieces, creative pieces, and the publishing process of her pieces.
Upon graduating from WCU, Kelly began the construction of her own business: KellySiedhof.com. Her website is continually growing to reflect the freelance editing and writing entity of which she dreams. With an eternal desire to learn, Kelly regularly studies new methods of writing so she can grow into a highly successful freelance grant writer for service dog and canine rescue organizations.
In addition to The Seeing Eye, Kelly and her fiancé adopted a lovable pup from Pitties.Love.Peace. – a pit bull rescue organization in Elizabethtown, Pa. Greta, their silly new bundle of fur, spends her days napping on the couch while Kelly researches and writes about canine training methods.

About Thomas Wipperman
My name is Thomas Wipperman, and I’m an AKC certified dog trainer, and I’ve been training dogs since 2011. I’ve worked with over 3,000 dogs since I began training, working with all sizes, breeds, and temperaments. All of my methods rely on Positive Reinforcement, taking cues from the most up to date dog training theories. Having traveled across America and spending time in Greece to engage with monks and their relationships with dogs, I’ve experienced a great deal of different styles and methods of training. Right now, I live in Nashville, TN, with my Australian Shepard, Audie.
I currently work both as an independent writer and as a dog trainer. Working with both a large pet chain and smaller organizations, I train dogs and new trainers, as well. Many of the dogs I’ve trained have gone on to be therapy and emotional support animals after passing the AKC Good Citizen Test, and I work with local rescues as well.
