Introduction: JM Dog Training, run by certified trainer Jenny Magill, CPDT-KA, sets your dog on the path to success through proven positive reinforcement training techniques. Jenny provides private training, behavior modification, AKC Canine Good Citizen and STAR Puppy certification, therapy dog training, and more.
Why positive training? Dog training using positive reinforcement is the most powerful, research-based technique around. Positive-reinforcement dog training works by using praise and rewards, rather than harsh punishment, to teach your dog right from wrong. The key with this type of training is to determine what it is that motivates your dog and use that motivator as a reward upon correct performance. Positive training produces dogs who are eager to please, excited about training, and quick to learn, instead of being fearful, resistant, or unpredictable. Above all, training should be fun for both you and your dog. Positive-reinforcement training will lead to a stronger, more lasting bond between you and your best friend.
Free consultations are available, and training is offered during weekdays, weekdays, and evenings to fit your busy schedule. Pet parents of newly adopted rescue dogs receive a 10% discount on all services as well as additional discounts and support if needed. Please call or email if you have any questions, and we look forward to meeting you and your pup soon!
Jenny has always felt a powerful bond with and compassion for animals. During childhood, her mother's Native American heritage and love of nature rubbed off at an early age, and she enjoyed growing up with fish, frogs, butterfly hatcheries, dogs, and a rat.
Jenny earned bachelor's degrees from Vanderbilt University in Education and History, and she spent the next five years working in PR with nonprofits focused on poverty alleviation, child advocacy, and microfinance. In 2008, she adopted a tiny abandoned 3-week-old puppy, Dozer, and she became an active volunteer and foster parent for a local rescue organization. She found that she had a talent successfully working with dogs with abuse histories and behavioral challenges, and her interest in dog training began to grow.
Since then, Jenny has worked at the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago (the city's oldest and largest animal shelter); at Petco as a customer adviser and head dog trainer; and in starting and building her own training business in Chicago, Houston, Pasadena (CA), and now Denver.
