Specific behaviors to address

Responds in about 2 hours

Introduction: I come to you! I have been a dog trainer 20 years now and am a Certified Professional Dog trainer working towards my veterinary behaviorist degree. I am a member of IAABC International Association of Applied Animal Behavior Consultants, The Association of Professional Dog trainers (APDT), and the Pet Professional Guild (PPG) I work to solve the source of behavioral issues, not just shutting down behavior and not addressing the actual emotion and reason for reacting. You get a much happier and willing dog when it can trust you to solve the problem, not just telling them to be quiet or stop reacting. I continue education units, (CEU's) as required to keep my license up to date. I'm not just training your dog, I am training you to learn not only to train your dog, but prevent behavior issues in the first place. I specialize in aggression, fear, and reactivity in dogs. I have a close relationship with many vets in the area, we offer board and train, scheduled around YOUR busy lifestyle.

Jodi was very patient with our dog ( and us , I think we were more the problem). Our dog loved her and even though he’s an older dog, she was able to train him. Our house is so much quieter now and Beau is so much easier to work with. Highly recommend!

Not only does she answer all my numerous questions but is also able to explain why and how in a way that I understand. I can easily put these methods to work with my dog. My dog is responding beautifully.

When I adopted my dog the shelter told me he was a one year old flat-coated retriever mix. He was very excitable and didn't behave the way I expected, which I know is common with rescues. It didn't take long for me to realize that Melvin and I needed professional help! One of the first things Jodi did was tell me that, based on behavior and cutting teeth, I had a border collie puppy mix! Even though I was surprised I was delighted that Jodi knows dogs so well that she can recognize a breed based on interactions. And that influenced how she worked with him and how she told me to work with him. Melvin has a lot of border collie habits, for better or for worse, and that includes LOTS of energy and a love for everyone. He was even jumping on top of my glass coffee table! I didn't think there would be any way to curb that behavior but Jodi taught us some training exercises and we put the kibosh on table jumping within a day. He also HATED his crate and Jodi helped us make it a good, safe place for him. She didn't just tell us how to train him with it but also where it should go and when we should size up (since she could tell he was going go grow - another surprise for us!). When we first learned that the low-key young dog we thought we'd adopted was actually a high energy puppy, our first thought was rehoming because I didn't know if I could give Melvin what he needed. Jodi taught both Melvin and me how to keep him safe and happy. This dog is my best friend and I couldn't have had that relationship without Jodi's help. She knows and loves dogs and it's clear that she's an expert. We're done with training for now but we still call Jodi for boarding because we know she's the best. I feel like I'm sending Melvin to summer camp when he's with Jodi because he's going to have so much fun, make so many friends, and come back happy and exhausted. We couldn't ask for a better experience 😁
