Kylee Kelly RVN, AdvDip.Can.Bhv

Hi! I’m Kylee, a registered veterinary nurse and behaviourist, and owner of Inspiring Dogs. I've always been passionate about animal health, welfare, and behaviour, and this passion drove me to veterinary nursing for nearly five years, and then establishing Inspiring Dogs in 2021 and completing an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour.


This is where I established my niche - working with fearful, anxious, aggressive and reactive dogs, along with working on preventing all of this in puppies. I'm continually inspired by my work in this field - working with amazing dogs and their humans and helping them enjoy their lives together to the fullest. 

I know how upsetting it can be living with a dog with behaviour issues that often stem from fear, anxiety, lack of confidence, or stress and I'm here to help.

I have worked with, raised, and rescued dogs for many years. I share my life with two amazing rescue dogs - a sweet and gentle Greyhound cross, and a goofy and entertaining Staffy cross.

Kylee - owner of Inspiring Dogs
