Thanks to Jen, I have mastered sit and stay while patiently waits for my breakfast kibble (my owner thinks I should wait at least 3 minutes to eat! Can you believe it?!?) I love my trainer Jen and can't wait to continue her trainings in the near future. Xoxo Kyra.
Absolutely the best in the area. Jenn is a loving person who puts everything she has into her craft. Tons of experience ...and it shows. Its amazing how she works with the animals. I have seen a difference in dogs after one session.
Jenn is the best! From the time I brought my dog Lucy into my home, we've worked with Jenn in both private and group class settings. I can't say enough positive things about the way she worked with my dog - and me! - because let's face it, training the humans is just as important! Highly recommend Jenn for dogs who need some confidence building and working through anxiety. The patience she brings to the table is unmatched.
