My 6 month old dog Bruno just finished up a three week board and train with Jennifer and the transformation in my little guy is nothing short of amazing. Prior to him going to “camp”, his behavior was pretty much out of control. I had tried a 6 week puppy obedience class which was helpful but requires a ton of at home follow up training. Working 2 jobs and caring for 3 kids under 4 years old made it pretty much impossible for me to dedicate the appropriate amount of time necessary to train my anxious, nippy, rambunctious pup. Jennifer was in touch often during his stay and sent many picture and video updates on his progress. Quite frankly, I was very anxious while he was away and had no idea what to expect when he came home. My Bruno came home confident, mellow, well balanced and obedient. All his problem behaviors have improved dramatically. I have no idea what kind of magic that woman preforms but I highly recommend her and her services. She was worth every penny and I am forever grateful.

Jennifer far exceeded our expectations and was extremely helpful and a true pleasure to work with. Her experience and knowledge were put well to use, it quickly became obvious that this is not a "job" for Jennifer its a passion Wei would give her A++. My wife and I have had many dogs and trainers over the past 50 years and the best trainer we have had is clearly Jennifer!!!! details : 8 month old standard poodle (big 50-60 pounds) . Private lessons. *Aggressive behavior modification * Leash pulling * 2 week residency at Jennifers location.

Details: 6 - 12 months old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • Biting • Destructive behavior • Chewing • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

I've worked with Jennifer once so far, and I can't WAIT for our next session. Since getting my puppy, I've tried my hardest without success to help her and train her. After our first session today, I've already noticed a huge difference in my puppies trust and demeanor with myself, my family members, and even people on the street. She worked with me and my puppy so punctually with nothing but a smile, and made sure that my worries were understood and worked on. Not only did my puppy start getting trained today, but she is training me too to be the best dog parent I can be. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone that needs help with their dog, regardless of how nervous you or your pup might be.

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Private lessons • Aggressive behavior modification • Biting • Destructive behavior • Digging • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

We were in desperate need of a dog trainer to introduce a new dog into the family with an existing dog and she just did a marvelous job. Will continue to work on other obedience training but I enjoy working with her she’s very knowledgeable and I recommend her to anybody who sees this.

Jennifer met myself and my boy Labrador! She was confidant, informed, pleasant, professional and offered solutions. I am looking forward to working with her, to help my boy be the best dOg. I was so impressed when he walked w her, minus pulling. HE gets over excited, and doesn't respond effectively, and jumps on guests to play. I am confidant Jennifer will guide me through this process! I look forward to working with her! CYNTHIA Baumann

Hi Cynthia!!! What a great training session we had. I adored Caleb and you and watching Caleb learn so quickly was wonderful! He is an outstanding animal and such a pleasure to train. I look so forward to seeing you soon!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My price is based on gaining a detailed summary of your dog, listening to your needs/training desires/dog behaviors. We discuss a plan moving forward & beginning training that day. Apts last 1.5-2 hours.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was trained old school. I was trained before shock collars were used on house dogs (they were invented for hunting dogs origionally) I was trained to analyze a dog quite quickly by be able to access their behavior & problem areas & then address & assist then for change. I was trained to gain the dogs brain & help them gain confidance.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I was raised in the field. Grandfather was a groomer & judge. Mother was a groomer & breeder. I became the trainer in the family. I've been directly involved with hands on dog work since I was age 5.
