 HAPPY DOGS

“We have two lovely dogs, both of whom struggle with somewhat challenging behaviours: our oldest has a lifelong issue of anxiety and reactivity around other dogs and the other is a rescue who wasn’t properly socialized as a puppy, so his unbridled enthusiasm can be a bit much for dogs and humans alike. We tried a few other trainers to get these behaviours in check, but they all seemed to come from the “alpha domination” school of training which has never worked for our dogs, as it only made them more anxious. Jane, however, was different; she is less interested in domination than in understanding, and our dogs responded instantly. She taught us to pay closer attention to their cues, their emotional contexts, and their environment; she helped us see how to address behaviours before they ramped up into problems. The training was fun and consistent, and Jane’s knowledge is deep and wide; she’s informed on the latest animal behaviour science and adapts her methods to the best science. Most of all, she respects the animals and our connection to them, and her training has helped us be better two-legged friends to our four-legged companions, and the household (and our walks!) are calmer and more enjoyable as a result. The change was immediate, and best of all it’s been lasting; we’ve seen significant and ongoing progress as a result of Jane’s teaching, and we couldn’t be happier or more grateful for her positive impact on our dogs and our home. She’s the real deal!”
