ABOUT JENNIE

SO YOU OWN A DOG…

Yet at times his/her behavior drives you nuts…
and I completely understand!

Owning this dog has been more work than you ever dreamed it would be!
Oh boy is it EVER!

You have tried a multitude of different training tactics to help stop his/her unwanted behavior and nothing has worked.
Similarly, I have been there, done that!

IN OTHER WORDS, I CAN RELATE…

to all these thoughts and feelings.

I have been a dog trainer for almost thirty years and until about ten years ago I felt I KNEW IT ALL…….

UNTIL

I took home this sweet adorable German Shepherd puppy named Lexi. She ended up challenging everything I knew (or I thought I knew). At the time I had these thoughts:

SHE WAS DOMINATING ME” 

“SHE SHOULD DO AS I SAY” 

“I FELT I SHOULD BE THE BOSS”

Perhaps you’ve thought things like this too and maybe others, meaning well, have suggested these kinds of things.

WELL GUESS WHAT?

THANKS TO THIS BEAUTIFUL GIRL….

I learned a new way, a better way to train dogs and it is all through, positive choice based training. (Perhaps you are thinking you’ve tried giving lots of treats and that didn’t work either- I most definitely can help you! )

My  training was acquired through extensive education, hands on experience and certifications. I would like to share my knowledge with you!

In other words, together we will address the underlying cause behind your dog’s behavior – that means in the end you will have a better behaved and happier dog!

As for my beautiful Lexi, she has since passed. I will be eternally grateful to her for showing me a better way and a more humane way to train. A method that improved our relationship, one based in mutual respect, where communication is a two way process.

To conclude, the journey for Lexi and me was real and can also be real for you as well!
