Introduction: I have been training dogs since 2002. I am a certified Animal Control Officer and Animal Cruelty Investigator. I am also a member of the Middlesex County Companion Animal Recovery (CART) Team. I have trained and competed in obedience and agility with several dogs. My Border Collie Nell has competed at Westminster twice in agility. My training practice is focused on two disciplines, puppy training and agility. My focus on puppy training is to help you set up your home so that you have a puppy safe environment, I will help you to integrate your new family member into your home, work with you to potty train, teach basic commands (sit, down, stay, come, their name) and then help you to forge a bond with your pup through training that will last a lifetime. My goal is to help you train them correctly in the first weeks and months so we can avoid behavioral issues in the future. I also offer pet sitting on a very limited basis and most often for training clients only for now. If you are looking to do more with your canine companion I offer dog agility lessons in Leonardo and can teach you and your partner all levels of agility...for fun, foundation, and novice through masters. My philosophy is to use positive reinforcement to shape the desired behaviors whether for puppy training or agility.

Joanne knows what she's doing. I have a very smart but very stubborn shepherd mix and she is helping work through that greatly. What I love is that aside from training the dog, she trains the owners and makes sure we know what to do when she's not around. She's always available for questions and has been a huge help!

Jo has been so supportive of us as a brand new team to the sport. We knew nothing at all and she has nurtured our enthusiasm for the sport without ever making me feel stupid for not knowing things. I know that she is always attending seminars and workshops to further her own knowledge and techniques and we as her students are fortunate enough to benefit from that.
