About Jill

Jill and her dogs (left to right) Odin, Granite, and Taylor

I use positive reinforcement and a least intrusive, minimally aversive behavior modification approach to help people and their dogs achieve their training and behavior goals. I serve Perry County, PA and the surrounding areas.

My husband and I have three Australian Shepherds, Odin (born 2012), Granite (born 2013), and Taylor (born ~2015).  I have been training since 2012, when Odin came into our lives. My dogs have earned titles in Rally-O, AKC Tricks, and Barn Hunt, they have some experience with scent work, are all Canine Good Citizens, and Granite is a former certified therapy dog.

I have trained as a volunteer for Supporting Paws Foundation since 2014.

I have earned the Accredited Dog Trainer credential from the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, and I'm a graduate of the Companion Animal Sciences Institute's Canine Behavior Science and Technology program. I have completed Michael Shikashio's Master Course - Aggression in Dogs. I'm a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen/STAR Puppy and Tricks evaluator, and an AKC Fit Dog instructor. I am fully insured and I am Canine First Aid Certified through DogSafe. Continuing education is a critical component of my approach to training and behavior modification. 

In addition, through my many years of experience working in higher education and in leadership roles, I have developed patience, empathy, and compassion, and these values extend into my work with dogs and their humans.
