About this pro
My companion Jake, Julie, and I have been friends since Jake was a pup and Julie was working at Petsmart. Since then, she has broadened where she wanted to take her career and has taken the bull by the horns! There is no one besides my family I trust more than her taking the proper care and attention I would give him. I love her care, compassion and who she made Jake to be!Jul 2, 2014
Julie is the Texas dog whisperer. Thank you for you god given talents and hard work that you put into all the four legged friends you work with! 🐶Jun 27, 2014
I found Julie while I was exploring the variety of things (shows, events, competitions) my dog could experience. I was referred to her for instruction in what is called Nosework (a fun search and scenting activity). Through this experience Julie has introduced me to methods of training that have developed my relationship with my dog I didnt know was possible. Buddy (my 70 lb rescued mutt) and I are growing every day in our understanding of each other. I can better understand his behavior cues and He understands what Im asking of Him.Jun 25, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do not have a complicated pricing system. Everything is on my web site at www.rmnwje.com. I am always willing to work with clients to meet their budgets and their ideas as well as granting a 20% discount to all shelter dogs within 6 months of being adopted from the time of when one of my classes start. So if you need help financially, just ask we will work with you and or barter. There is always something that needs doing out here.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. I am delightfully required to do CEU work to maintain my CPDT-KA status. In 2011 I attended the following: K9 Nose Work Camp in Colman Georgia - April 2011 Jean Donaldson in Houston Canine Counseling in the Age of Whispering K9 Nose Work Instructor Module Two - Marietta, Georgia Celeste Mead Seminar - Austin Canine Central - Sept. 2011 Ron Gaunt NACSW founder - Seminar Intro to K9 Nose Work and Continued Nose Work
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After years of riding and training reining horses behind the scences as well as my mother reminding me I trained every dog in the house as a kid, it was a natural for me. My own life forces are slowing down, so it has allowed me to be more in tune with God's creatures and the topography around me. Dog's and horses have helped heal my life and I want to share that with people. We are moving quite fast these days and I revel in the moment I am in the hot, the rain, the cold and still out there doing someting with my dogs. This shows people they can do it to and feel like a kid while doing it. It was not a huge jump for me to tie all of what I have done before into teaching, hospitiality, and training. It's a gift and here at Rancho Mondo NW we want to share that with you.
