I know where you are coming from!  I started my career with a difficult dog and I understand the frustration and embarrassment of not getting the best friend you were hoping for.

Hi! I'm Jenna Huffman

I received my dog training certification in 2010 and have been focused on dogs and dog behavior ever since.  I am a certified trainer through the Animal Behavior College and the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.  I spent 5 years working in shelters with all different breeds, sizes, and behavior issues.  I am a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, an Animal Behavior College Mentor, and I am a Fear Free Certified Professional through Fear Free Pets.  

 

I love dogs and I want to see every dog in a happy and loving household.  My goal as a trainer is to teach you how to train your dog in a positive and effective way. 

My Inspiration

You don't always get the dog you want, sometimes you get the dog that needs you.

I got my dog Ares as a puppy when I was 19 years old.  I was living alone in my first apartment and she followed my boyfriend home.  We tried to find her owners but no one claimed her.  I decided to keep her because she was adorable and sweet.  As she grew it became apparent that she had some behavior issues I was not prepared for.  She had very high anxiety and reactivity. 

I searched for trainers but at the time could only find trainers that advocated for force and dominance training.  This only made my poor dog worse!  In her first 3 years of life she attacked 2 dogs and bit 3 different people.  

It was then that I decided I had to find a better way.  I searched for training schools and found my calling as a dog trainer.  Ares, through positive training methods, was able to live a long and happy life.  She passed away in 2018 due to health problems at 16 years of age.  She was my heart dog and I owe my career, and so much more, to her.
