Introduction: I deal with behavioural issues that people are having with their dogs. While doing this, I teach the owners about the pack, and how it works. Their behaviours are normal, but when they come to live with people, these behaviours have to be modified. I believe that there is no such thing as a bad dog, but a dog with inappropriate behaviours. There isn't a dog that cannot be helped. Seeing the difference that the training makes in the whole family

Dog Training

Jean is very passionate about her training any type of dog. She is very professional and gave us a lot of good tips that we have put to use. Our dog Chase is walking better everyday and we are still working on his commands and behavioral tips which are a work in progress. She made sure we knew that it is not the dog that needs training it’s the owner. This is very important. This all took place in one training session. We also had fun. My family and I highly recommend Jean to train your dog or dogs. Thanks Jean, Cathy & Family

Dog Training

Working with Jean was an incredible experience! I highly recommend working with her, whether you have an adult dog with an existing behavioral issue, or even if you're just starting out as a puppy parent and need to set the foundation for good behavior. My fiancé and I just got a 10-week old puppy, and we were feeling really frustrated and overwhelmed with all of his typical puppy behaviors and challenges - nipping, barking, accidents in the house, crate training, etc.. Jean came to our home and gave us a lot of tough love that we really needed, showing us how coddling our puppy was leading to bad behavior and a lack of control. Be prepared to have your beliefs and expectations about owner-dog relationships TOTALLY changed, but for the better!

Jean was amazing! She was quick to respond to my message, was able to come to my home that weekend and was very prompt and professional. My partner and I were shocked that within 45 minutes my 3 dogs were calm, submissive and all laying in the same room (I have a 13 yo chihuahua and 2 five month old Pomsky pups!) Jean believes in training the owners of dogs to be the pack leader and how important it is to stay calm and consistent!! It was so surprising to me that you don’t have to punish or reward with treats to get a dog to do what you want them to! Totally Amazed!!

Dog Training

Jean was very punctual and stayed for several hours until we had practiced walking and addressed numerous issues with my dog. She was very knowledgeable, professional & friendly. She even brought toys and goodies. I learned it was I needing the training more than my dog. We both learned a lot and am practicing every day. My dog is walking better, listening better and I'm able to block and/ or get her to ignore other dogs completely now, on our walks without any confrontation. I'm thrilled with what we have both learned and will continue to learn as we move forward with Jean's guidance.

Like many others have put, I have had a great experience with Jean! From the time we chatted on the phone and I told her about our pack of 5 she was so excited! That made me feel at ease Within no time after entering our busy home Jean had our dogs quiet. Her straightforward approach and simplicity makes the training process more memorable and easy to follow. Our dogs are already behaving better in all areas after one night. Less urinating, barking, and other countless behaviors. Jean said if we stuck to her advice we would think, where are our dogs? That’s happening already. We thank you so so much Jean and definitely recommend you to anyone looking for help with ANY dog behaviors! -Love Bronson Glitch Holly Jack and Bella❤️ And their pack LEADERS

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

    I charge $ 100. for the day I do not leave, until all issues have been addressed.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I first find out from the owner, what is going on with their dog. I start with basic obedience, and then modifying the behaviour. At this time,I educate the owner about the pack, and explain why the dog does certain behaviours.

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

    I am graduate of Animal Behaviour College. I received my Certification in 2009.
