Locations: San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles

Kaelin Munkelwitz is the owner and head dog trainer of All Things Pups®.


After years of studying to become a veterinarian, Kaelin quickly realized after getting experience in the field that the career path she thought to be her destiny was ridden by politics, greed and malpractice. Devastated and heartbroken, Kaelin went back to what has always made her happiest at heart, rescuing dogs.

As Kaelin got heavily involved in Southern California dog rescues, working with fosters and constantly offering training advice to volunteers and adopters she realized that she had a special set of skills that allowed her to bridge the gap of communication between dogs and their owners.


A combination of both Kaelin’s years of training experience back in Minnesota and her innate understanding of canine behavior led Kaelin to her new passion of helping as many dogs around the world through owner education of her training philosophies.


Years later, Kaelin is now the trusted trainer for many celebrities, social media influencers, and phenoms on Forbes "30 under 30" list due to her extensive experience and uncanny ability to read and shape dogs' behavior. Kaelin is a member of the APDT and an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator, and she has built a reputation within the rescue community as a "miracle worker" with aggressive and reactive dogs; so much so, that she is considered the 'go-to' trainer for aggressive dogs on the verge of euthanasia among rescues she affiliates with.


With over 10 years and thousands of hours of dog training experience, there is nobody better to trust in for your dog’s well-being than All Things Pups founder, Kaelin Munkelwitz.
