Kelsey Widener began her dog training career over 10 years ago in Winston Salem NC. “Rescue.Train.Repeat” was created in 2010 and focused on shelter dogs needing a second chance. Having trained her personal dogs to compete in several sports such as dock diving and flyball she trains her rescued animals to compete as well, boosting their confidence and increasing their chances of finding a good home.
Two former rescues went on to be service dogs while others went on to become police or search and rescue dogs. She has also worked with search and rescue programs and was employed by a local animal hospital for four years until she decided to make dog training a full-time career.
Recognizing the plight of dogs in the local shelter she began evaluating dogs and pulling them to train and adopt into a loving homes. She continues to do this alongside operating her business full time. Additionally, she rescues dogs and trains them for easy placement for Eastern Herding Dog Rescue, Stokes County Humane Society, American Belgian Malinois Rescue, South East German Shepherd Rescue, and Triad Golden Retriever Rescue.
