About the Trainer



Dogs are our best friends and I want to help make you and your pets life the best it can be!

I'm a Los Angeles based trainer and have worked with rescue dogs for over 14 years, and have been training dogs professionally since 2002.  I'm actively involved in rescue work and Animal Advocacy and am the co-founder of the non-profit Animals, People, and Environment Action.


I received my Bachelor Degree in Business Marketing from Long Beach State and studied animal behavior and training under Master Dog Trainer Steve Morrissey. We belong to the school of thought that you must earn the dogs respect to be able to communicate with them, and then teach them what they need to learn.  No harsh training methods are used, we do not use shock collars.  We make training fun for the dog, it's the most rewarding experience to watch a dog learn and understand.  


Steve trained at the Royal Guide Dogs for the Blind in Birminghan, UK and currently lives in Palm Springs CA.  Combined we have over 45 years of experience in obedience training and behavioral issues.  I used to work in both cities, but have since moved back to LA full-time.  If you are in the Palm Springs area you can contact Steve at 760-288-1876 for a consultation.


Nothing can compare to hands on training taught by compassionate teachers who have worked with hundreds of dogs from clients homes, helping rescue organizations, or teaching guide dogs for the blind. Obedience training is an investment your dogs future. A well trained dog will provide you with years of joy for you and your pet.





Behavioral issues can not be addressed if your dog doesn't have the basic skills needed, as an example:
If your dog is leash aggressive, but doesn't know how to heel when you walk...you have to address the problem of not walking correctly before you can tackle the issue of leash aggression.

Basically your dog must learn the fundamentals before you can deal with any other issues. Obedience training is the foundation needed for you and your pet to have a relationship of communication, understanding and trust.

I understand the frustration an untrained dog can cause, let me help you and your dog live the perfect life together...the life you both deserve!

Jill's approach is not one size fits all, each dog is different and a program will be specifically designed for you and your pet, training programs cover...

 

  • Standard On Leash Obedience Training
  • Advanced Obedience Training: Verbal and Hand Signals
  • Behavior Modification
  • Behavior Management
  • Lease Aggression Control and Management
  • If you want a dog that you can walk with ease that doesn't pull you down the street, one that listens when it's called, one that understands what you want and does it's commands when asked, our training will give you what you want and what your dog needs.
  • Many times we can accomplish this in just a few sessions, don't put off training because you don't have the time or the money, a small investment will go a long way!

 Helping my clients and their pets is the most fulfilling "job" I've ever had, and I'm grateful I get to do what I do every day!
