Dogs have always been
a part of Jackie’s life.
From the age of 4 years

Over the last few years Jackie has used her training skills to help homeless dogs. Through her experience working with many types of dogs, Jackie has developed a training program designed to teach dogs basic obedience commands through positive, relationship training.
“My training methods are built on understanding and communicating with your dog. Just as in a dog’s world love, communication and simplicity is the answer.”
