- Welcome -
Training your dog should be fun! With the use of positive, practical, and force-free methods, we will show you how to strengthen your communication and relationship with your canine companion.
We have decided to offer a small amount of in person services as we start to ease into our regular services. Please read the descriptions of each class to determine if it's the right environment for you.
In person one on one consultations will be offered on a very limited basis so please be patient with us. Initial consults will still be conducted virtually and follow up sessions will be held outside, weather permitting. We will be flexing our cancellation and refund policies to ensure everyone has the opportunity to stay home or cancel is they do not feel safe or well. We thank you for your patience and understanding but we're excited to see people and dogs again!
Jake has always been around dogs. Growing up always having a pup around made it the logical choice for him to start working with dogs professionally at the age of 19.
Jake is a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. He continues his studies and education because dog training is a rapidly growing and evolving field.
He shares his home with the “Red Pointy Dogs” in Strafford. In his free time you can find Jake hanging out with Manzo and Piper, mountain biking, or hiking in the white mountains with Louise.
Louise started training dogs when she first wanted a puppy. The deal was if she could train the family dog to be more well mannered then she could get her own.
In 2012 Louise graduated from UNH with a degree in Applied Animal Science. From there she went on to work at the New Hampshire SPCA where she trained shelter dogs and taught a wide array of classes. A few years later she began work at the Lakes Region Humane Society creating a Behavior Rehabilitation Program.
Louise is a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (Knowledge Assessed) and a Certified Nose Work Instructor.
