Introduction: A tired dog is a good dog! We at J&J’s know how important exercise and activity is to your dog. We have three dogs of our own, two cats and two guinea pigs. Between us, we have worked in dog daycare and training for about 5 years. Whether it’s just a stretch of the legs or a bit of training thrown into your four legged friend’s walk, or pet sitting for cats or exotics, we’ve got it covered! We offer dog walking, and basic obedience training, specializing in puppy training, and pet sitting for almost any species! We use a balanced approach to dog training with an emphasis on marker training and positive reinforcement methods. We do not ascribe to a particular philosophy on training, except to do what works and train the dog in front of us! We will use whatever tools you are comfortable with and work with your preferences. It is, after all, your dog!

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

    Determine what their needs are, schedule a meeting and greet if requested and book services from there.

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

    Jamie has been a dog trainer for 5 years training group classes and Jake has experience working in doggie daycare. We’ve both been life long dog owners and currently have three of our own dogs. Jamie participates in numerous dog performance sports with our dogs and as a team has earned titles in obedience, agility, lure coursing, barn hunt, etc. two of our dogs are Therapy Dogs and visit with elementary schools, libraries and nursing homes. We got into this type of work to share our experience and knowledge with others so they can fully enjoy their dogs and build a mutually beneficial relationship!

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    Walking our first client, Otis was a lot of fun!
