A Personal Message from Jeanne

I am a dog trainer, people teacher and DOG LOVER and I specialize in teaching a humane approach to puppy raising, dog training and problem solving. I believe our job is to make sure we meet our dogs needs, and to teach them how to live in harmony with us. I bring this philosophy to my practical phone consultations and in-home training sessions.

I have lived and breathed dogs for most of my 65 years, and my respect and admiration for them never ceases. Indeed, the dedication in my book, Good Dogs, Bad Habits reads:

“This book is dedicated to all the dogs who continue to share our hearts with us, in spite of our strange human ways.”

I had a business in Seattle for 20 years as an in-home dog trainer. Now my in-home dog training services are available only in the Bellingham, Washington area. My gift is to help people and their dogs learn to communicate kindly and trustingly with each other and to create a wonderful bond filled with mutual cooperation, respect, love, fun, and joy.

Prior to my training business, I was breeding and showing dogs in conformation and obedience. I am no longer interested in the competitive aspects of the dog world, but can give you a good foundation if you decide to compete.  My focus is to help people have a fun, safe, relaxed quality connection with their dog. I currently live on an island near Bellingham, with a little herd of dairy goats  and my lovely dog.
