Paige Seymour

Paige’s passion for animal training began at age six when she started riding horses. Both of her parents are practicing psychologists, which sparked her interest in learning theory and how it applies to animals. For fourteen years, she rode and trained horses under different mentors before deciding it was time for a change. Wanting to stick with animals, Paige looked to dogs, incorporating her knowledge of equine behavior and general learning theory. After adopting Grimm, her service dog prospect, she decided to fully dedicate herself to dog training. In 2023, Paige attended StarMark Academy and earned her certification as a Canine Training and Behavior Specialist. Alongside her demo dog, Kol, she works to help owners understand their canine partners better in order to strengthen the bond they share.
