Kapil Patwardhan

Kapil Patwardhan, from Pune, India, is a graduate of the Nordic International Dog Trainer School. His life revolves around free living dogs in his city. Around 2013, he started helping a local animal NGO organize adoption camps for puppies and kittens in the community.

Over the years, with the help of his family, he’s fostered over 500 motherless puppies whose streetie mom passed away due to human conflict, accidents and illness. Every single dog has left a mark on his soul and has taught him a great deal.

Besides consulting with families, Kapil spends his time teaching children, college students and regular citizens on how to coexist with street dogs. He also does standup comedy, which helps him stay sane and also keeps his dog presentations light and hearty.
