Fueled by Passion

I’d always had dogs in my life but Jack was my first “puppy” (adopted at one year old & 80 lbs!) with zero training. Going into group classes I realized there was so much to learn! Group classes together with private training (with my now incredible friend and mentor) taught me how essential it is to learn how dogs communicate, how they learn, creating a relationship built on kindness and an understanding of our dogs as a species. To start, dog are individuals, just like us 😉 I’m delighted to have literally ‘stubbled’ into this passion and endlessly grateful for my once “tarzan from the jungle”, now calm cool and collected dog-o-mine, Jack. He’s taught me so much and now I get the pleasure of working to inspire others on their training journey.

 “Julie – just wanted to say how pleased we are with the results of the training sessions we took with you. The techniques you taught me have been key to our success thus far and I’m sure we’ll conquer them all. You were a superb communicator and as passionate ‘dog person’ as I’ve met. It was a delight to work with you.”


“Julie was extremely understanding and patient with a very rambunctious puppy and had invaluable advice to get through the first puppy year. Ongoing training sessions that we have with Julie continue to prove invaluable. These new game type of training leads to a fun and rewarding experience.”
