Fueled by Passion
I’ve always had dogs in my life but going into classroom and private training with my dog Jack 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. I literally ‘stubbled’ into my passion and I can’t thank my boy Jack enough for this tremendous gift!

“Julie – just wanted to say how pleased we are with the results of the training sessions we took with you. While we’ve not achieved all of our goals yet, 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’ asI’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. The fact that these new training methods utilize game type of training leads to a fun and rewarding experience.”
