Morgan “MG” Buttolph

Office Manager/Certified Dog Trainer

Morgan aka "MG", is a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College. His extensive background in dog handling and care began at age 10, when he started his own dog walking and pet sitting business in Princeton, NJ. Morgan's passion for dog training came in early adulthood after adopting a rescue dog with behavioral issues. Learning how to help his dog inspired Morgan to become a trainer, the eventual goal to help others create successful relationships with their dogs, whether a puppy, adult dog, or rescue. Having started as an apprentice trainer with Kate Perry, Morgan is now the co-teacher of all KPDT's Basic Obedience, Tricks, and Puppy Socialization classes, earning him the appropriate title of "Puppy Professor." He is also the office and social media manager for KPDT, and has been with the team for over 8 years.
