Meet Trisha Seifried
The Original Cat Boss (OCB)
Approaching 22 years of professional animal training, owner and Creator of Catboss Tv, Trisha Seifried, started her career in one of the most prestigious training positions at Sea World and Busch Gardens as a young ambitious adult. Setting her goals high, Trisha set out to work with hundreds of rescued dogs, cats and exotics performing with them on stage in front of over 17 million people over the course of her career. Trisha credits famous animal trainer Joel Slaven and Jack Hanna for her experience and knowledge in the field, helping to shape her passion and energy into a career that she loves.
Upon returning home to St Louis, Trisha became a new member of the Pro Plan Performance team at Purina Farms. During her time at Purina she
wrote and produced the popular show in the theatre called "The Pet Acatemy", a
comedy skit show with dogs and cats and even the pot bellied pig that had the visitors belly laughing and leaving questioning how in the world did she train those cats to do those action packed behaviors? While working at Purina, Trisha got the opportunity to train cats for the famous Brands such as Friskies, Cat Chow, Purina One and Pro Plan, traveling the country and working them through challenging Video and Photography productions for the brands. From making appearances on the Jimmy Kimmel show with her cats, to consulting for brands, to developing training programs for endangered species facilities, Trisha's extensive experience allowed her to succeed in starting her own Animal Talent Agency called Got Pet-ential Animal Talent. Got Pet-ential is now the leading agency for commercial and print work in the Midwest working for close to 80 brands Nationwide and handling hundreds of animals each year. She didn’t stop there. Her passion for cats and the desire to change the narrative that cats can’t be trained drove her to develop a new brand call Catboss Tv. Her mission statement is to “change the way people look at cats for the better and if we change what we do to better them then other people will follow too!” The OCB is here to help you navigate through behavior challenges, help stimulate your cats mind through positive training methods, achieve whole body health with proper nutrition and build relationships one high 5 at a time!
