Jodie is great, she has been training not only my pup, Reggie, but also training us how to understand him, and make sure he understands what we want from him. He is always excited to see her show up and enjoys his training sessions. She has worked with us to address issues and concerns specific to Reggie.Aug 9, 2018Verified
She was a very positive trainer and my dog responded very well!Oct 29, 2017Verified
I originally called Jodi because my dog was acting aggressively towards me. He was very stressed and not at all the loving one as he used to be. Jodi came to my home and began positive reinforcement with him, as well as teaching me how to respond when he acts aggressive. I am THRILLED to report that my dog is much calmer and happier and again the loving dog he once was! Jodi is the greatest and my dog loves her!!! It was totally worth the time and investment!Apr 19, 2017Verified
Jodi will come to your house which I love and my GSD loves her too. All of her training is very positive and I was seeing results the very first day. I thought my dog was untrainable but Jodi has shown me that's not so! I have learned so much from her. My GSD suffers from severe separation anxiety and is very OCD. She is also aggressive towards other dogs. We have successfully integrated her with another dog so far which was a blessing. Overall I am very happy with what Jodi has been able to do for us. We still have some work left to do but Jodi has given me the knowledge to get it done. Thank you so much Jodi and I will recommend you every chance I get! Always grateful, Jennifer and CaliMay 9, 2017Verified
I liked everything about our experience so far. Jodi Lytle is punctual, experienced, professional, responsive to our puppies needs as well as ours. She has reliable information for every possible issue imaginable. I’d rather pay a bit more now if necessary, than have someone less qualified mess something up and have to start over. Stick with Jodi and your dog will be effectively taught from the beginning.Aug 2, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?You are not just paying an hourly rate with me. You are paying for my years of experience, knowledge and certifications in my field. You can be assured that you have someone that actually knows what they are doing with behavior. Regular dog consultations run 40 plus mileage fee. Aggressive dog Consultations run 60 as they are a bit more in depth and require me to work within the dogs comfort zone. I have package deals on my website that give a bit of a discount to those wanting to save a little money.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to speak to the client first to see what I can help with. Clients are sent to my website to do an intake form that will help me with working with their dog as well as scheduling an appointment time that is convenient for them. We meet I evaluate the dog and hear the owners concerns as well as ask questions that the intake form may have led to and then a I come up with a training plan tailored to each dog and owner to help the owner set the dog up to succeed. Management behaviors are given as well as information to Start them on the path to a better behaved dog.

I do regular Webinars, and Continuing Education Units through the many professional organizations I am part of. The Association of Professional Dog Trainers or APDT. As well as The Pet Professional Guild and International Association of Behavior Consultants IAABC.org I have 18 years of hands on experience and am constantly working to keep up with industry standards.
