We are thrilled to welcome newly-certified canine behaviorist, Maddie Kenny, to the 3D Dog Team.

As a life-long animal lover, her experience ranges from training exotic zoo animals, to serving as assistant trainer for Department of Defense detection canines at Von Der King Kennels in Jasper, GA.

"I knew from an early age that I wanted to make a career out of working with animals, because they have always been one of my deepest passions."

Maddie's extensive background in animal training and behavior is now available to help Birmingham area dog parents improve their relationships.

Conservation Study Abroad in 2018:

  • "Hawaii- hiked through Volcanoes National Park and watched lava flow through the craters at night, visited different beaches, including black sand beaches, kayaked in the open ocean, snorkeled along the reef

  • New Zealand- visited the adventure capital of the world, saw breathtaking views in Doubtful Sound as we hiked through the rain forests, swam with dolphins, took a dip in the glacial waters at the base of Mt Cook, visited sheep country, as well as saw the famous LOTR Mount Doom

  • Australia- visited the Australia Zoo, home of the late Steve Irwin, studied in Sydney and Brisbane, and hiked through the outback in the Carnarvon Gorge. Favorite part of the trip was visiting an eco-resort in the middle of the GBR, Lady Elliot Island, where we snorkeled sunrise and sunset everyday. We also spent a week with host families, where my group stayed with “the snake man,” an exotic snake breeder. We were able to handle, feed, and learn about different native species of snakes.

  • Fiji- we spent the first half of the trip in the city of Nadi where we experienced much of the Fijan culture as we explored the local markets. We then boated to a smaller Fijian island where we spent the rest of the trip immersed in the small island village lifestyle. Here, we were also able to explore more reefs and wildlife as we snorkeled and hiked around the island."
