Dog Training to Prevent & Solve Dog Behavior Problems Quickly & Kindly.
Frustrated by your dog or worried your puppy will be out of control? You want your dog or puppy to listen and not jump up, steal stuff, bark or drag you on walks, but all the conflicting advice makes it's hard to know what to do! Will treats make unreliable without them? The thought of shocking / choking makes you cringe, but you are wonder if you have to do that to have a well-behaved dog.
Help is here! I, (Jess Rollins), have been a dog trainer for over 10 years. With a BA in biology and a Dog Trainer Counseling Certificate from the SF-SPCA Dog Training Academy.

I work with kindness for BOTH ends of the leash (judgement free zone!). We will meet in your home and virtually to coach you through all of the steps.

I have known Jess for many years and seen her excellent training skills. I have had her pet sit my own dogs too, which says a lot since I am extremely picky about who can watch my girls. I highly recommend Jess for all of your dog needs. She is not only an extremely skilled professional, but she is kind and compassionate to both dogs and humans.
Over the last year, our pup has been experiencing increasing anxiety/reactivity with neighbors in our apartment. Before working with Jess, we tried working with another dog trainer but struggled to apply the theory. I had resigned myself to a stressful next few years of apartment building living. Enter Jess: after one session, our pup's anxiety around neighbors has significantly improved. Jess walked us through the theory AND the practice of helping our dog feel less anxious. It is life changing to have the tools to create a peaceful walk with our pup. We are excited to continue working with Jess!
We loved working with Jess on our first session and will more than likely be returning! With our last dog we watched a ton of YouTube videos. There's something you can't get from a video though which is interaction and feedback to your specific needs. Jess is highly trained in her field and knows her stuff. She's patient and offers solutions that work for your family. I implemented her ideas for jumping and it worked within 5 tries. Definitely need to continue reinforcing it but I was impressed! I would highly recommend her and her services!!
