I started training dogs when I first wanted a puppy. The deal was if I could train the family dog to be more well mannered then I could get my own. I had no idea what I was in for! Manzo came a drooling, shaking mess of fear and anxiety. I soon realized I had my hands full and had to learn more about behavior modification in order to help Manzo succeed. I took every class and learned all I could to help Manzo feel more confident about his surroundings. Fast forward 9 years and here we are, sharing my passion of dog training and strengthening dog-human relationships, with all of you!

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 where they take in dogs with undesirable behaviors, train them, and find them homes. Her work involved assessing each dog and creating a behavior modification plan for their specific needs. This way, adopters can have success with their new companions. Louise now runs Red Pointy Dog full time with Jake, and offers a wide array of services to the community.

I have always been around dogs. Growing up always having a pup around made it the logical choice for me to start working with dogs professionally. By constantly being around a number of dogs I quickly realized how fascinating and unique each dog was. I went go on to start my own pet sitting and dog walking business. Through this work I met a little dog named Roxie who needed more guidance than a walk here or there. It is with Roxie that I decided to learn more about behavior and training to better help the dogs in my care.

 

 

Jake started his career with dogs in 2007 at The Yellow Dogs Barn, daycare and kennel. Here Jake managed the daycare yards insuring each dog was safe, and played appropriately. In 2010 Jake went on to open his own business, Jake's Pet Sitting, where he provided in home care for dogs. After becoming inspired to learn more about how dogs learn, he began shadowing dog trainers and from there he went on to become one himself. Jake now runs Red Pointy Dog full time with Louise, working to improve dog and human communication everyday.
