Owner & Head Trainer
Jay has 17 plus years of experience working with all breeds and temperaments. He has traveled all over the United States and Europe training and delivering dogs. Several of his clients include professional athletes, celebrities, security teams, and high profile business professionals. Over the years, Jay has learned the importance of forming a bond with the dogs and tailoring the training method to best suit each individual dog. “If there is no trust there is no training. Our goal is to work with both owner and dog to form a strong respectful bond and in return have a balanced and happy home life.” -Jay
Jay truly believes working with dogs is a privilege and they should never be rushed or pushed to get results.
