Jen has done wonders for our already fabulous babes. We had some issues with aggression and barking and her methods for correcting the behavior worked beautifully! Her approach is tough, yet so loving and all 3 of our dogs love her, which has never happened in the succession of trainers we’ve worked with. She’s honest and patient and effective and we couldn’t be more grateful for all she’s done for our family.

“We have a private jet that allows us to take our pappillon (Lola) anywhere in the world. However, before we hired Jennifer McCarthy to conduct live-in dog training, Lola’s aggression made it difficult to travel. After one package session with Jennifer, she no longer has aggression problems and understands that I am in charge. We also participated in Trick Training and now Lola loves to show off her favorite trick grabbing a Kleenex when I sneeze. Thanks to Jennifer, Lola is a pleasure to take everywhere.
Jennifer – My World Class Dog Trainer.”

“Training with Jennifer has completely changed the relationships between us, and our 4 dogs. Buddy, who (at 5 1/2 years of age) has always been a fearful and sometimes aggressive dog in public, is now, after only a few months of work, a friendly and sociable dog. In a lifetime of dogs, I have never experienced such a dramatic change in the confidence and joy we now experience with our dogs. (Not to mention the deepened bond and love we enjoy). I have worked with many dog trainers over the years and none come close to Jennifer’s expertise, commitment and dedication. I highly recommend her to anyone desiring to overcome any challenge with their dogs.”

“We knew we had a naughty dog. We didn’t know we had a “sneaky little alpha”. As Rooster guarded his bed, bones and bowl with nasty growls and gnashing teeth, our sweet little hound didn’t seem so sweet any more. We’re not sure who got more training, Rooster or us, but Rooster has changed. He’s still sneaky but he’s not an alpha. Thank you Jennifer for giving us back our Good Lookin’ Rooster.”

“Jennifer McCarthy is a knowledgeable dog trainer with a caring and patient personality! She thoroughly understands how to effectively train both the owner and dog, which is hard to come by with dog trainers. After working with two other dog trainers before meeting Jennifer, my husband and I were frustrated with the results. Since as a couple we were first time dog owners it was important for us to get the most out of training our dog, but we really needed to be educated on how to accomplish this.
Meeting Jennifer changed everything and since she specializes in working with German Shepherds, we were able to see how well trained our dog Kingston could be, which is comforting from the beginning. Jennifer’s style of using her dogs to interact with myself and Kingston works well for us and gives each of us the chance to learn by example. Jennifer is not only a wonderful trainer who is always willing to set aside time for you and your dog, but she is a great listener and support system for helping you and your dog live up to your fullest potential.”
