About Kristy

About Kristy Cammerota of Sit Stay Zen:

Dog Trainer
As a professional dog obedience instructor since 2005, Kristy has taught group classes in Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Obedience and Canine Good Citizen at Dessin Animal Shelter in Honesdale, PA,  Springbrook Kennels in Moscow, PA and PETCO in Santa Barbara, CA. Presently, she offers group training classes in Family Dog Life Skills and Canine Good Citizen / Therapy Dog at Your Dog’s Place in Honesdale, PA. Her positive techniques utilizing clicker training and motivation on the dog’s behalf have helped dogs develop strong communication bonds with their owners keeping them in their homes where they belong. She currently provides in-home training for dogs that need help with behavioral issues or for those that just need some guidance in developing basic good manners. Some dogs experiencing difficulty are suffering from severe emotional stress or trauma and need special assistance along with a behavior modification program. For these special cases, Kristy often incorporates the use of her aromatherapy line and custom flower remedies to help animals that have been displaced, are in transition at shelters, or are recent arrivals to their new homes.

Animal Aromatherapy
In 2010, Kristy began creating aromatherapy blends to help assist animals with emotional difficulties. She studied the positive effects of utilizing essential oils under the direction of Maya Minwah, creator of Mayasblends at The Sanctuary of Oils in Honesdale, PA. Kristy’s Zen Doggie oil blend has achieved popularity for its notable help with dogs suffering from anxiety. Along with the success of Zen Doggie and Zen Kitty, Kristy has developed various other aromatherapy blends such as an all natural flea and tick spray for dogs and  one specially formulated for cats, an oil blend to help dogs with difficulty breathing and an oil blend to help combat fear and boost confidence for insecure dogs. Check out all of her products at the Sit Stay Zen online shop, www.sitstayzen.com/shop. Her products are also featured at several locations both locally and nationally listed here.

Animal Acupressure Therapist
In 2009, Kristy achieved her certification as an Animal Acupressure Therapist for canines and equines from the Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage. She combines acupressure massage with Reiki to deliver soothing healing treatments to her four legged clientele through her business, Sit Stay Zen, and at Abington Veterinary Center in South Abington Township, PA (by appointment only). She has effectively treated cats and dogs with conditions such as intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), paralysis, arthritis, renal failure, respiratory issues and more.

Flower Essence Practitioner
Kristy has been studying and using flower essences for over a decade to help both pets and their people. This non-invasive form of vibrational medicine is used to address profound emotional issues and restore mind-body health. Her custom flower remedies which are liquid extracts are created using the original 38 Bach Flower Essences and the North American Flower Essences of the Flower Essence Society (FES).

Reiki Master Teacher
Kristy has been practicing Reiki on animals since 2004. Her introduction to the healing art of Reiki began with Betty deMaye-Caruth, PhD., RN, CHTP, RM/T of the Minerva Educational Center, and continued with Bonnie Robinson, RM/T of the Sanctuary at Smith Hill, and Kathleen Prasad, RM/T of Animal Reiki Source, author of Animal Reiki: Using Energy to Heal the Animals in Your Life and founder of SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association).

In the spring of 2010, Kristy was visiting practitioner at Ross Veterinary University, on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, where she certified 32 veterinary students in Reiki Level 1 for Companion Animals.

Kristy continues to advocate the importance of positive training of dogs and using non-invasive holistic methods to help treat animals by offering acupressure, Reiki, aromatherapy and flower essence therapy to domestic and farm animal companions.

 Kristy resides in Northeastern Pennsylvania with her husband, John,
senior dog, Selky and senior cat, Leo.
