NOT Just About the Dog!


Ware, Massachusetts

Meet Jackie Easter

Dogs have always been

a part of Jackie’s life.

From the age of 4 years

old when she got her

first puppy and best

friend for 15 years, dogs

have been an integral

part of her life.

She has a lifetime of

experience working with

dogs. In 1996, she

attended the National

Institute of Dog Training

and in 1997 she started her own dog training business. She has successfully shown and trained dogs in conformation, obedience and agility.

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.”

It’s NOT Just About The Dog
