Jennifer Kyzer holds a Master's Degree in Education and has been training dogs for over 16 years; she has been self-employed since 2005. She began her training with basic obedience classes and now specializes in behavior issues. Jennifer has worked with dogs of all breeds and ages in a wide variety of training areas.
Along with basic obedience and behavior training, Jennifer has tackled problems such as dog-on-dog and dog-on-people aggression, separation anxiety, destructive behaviors, resource guarding, leash aggression, extreme fear/shyness, severe leash pulling, 'pack' (multiple dog household) issues, improper greetings, crating and potty training. Jennifer also assists new parents in learning the proper steps to introducing family dogs to new babies, and works with families to successfully integrate adult rescue dogs into the household.
Jennifer is a certified evaluator for the S.T.A.R Puppy Program and K-9 Good Citizen through the AKC (American Kennel Club). Her work with the SPCA includes volunteering her time to assist with training, temperament testing and general obedience. She has also completed the Pet University Training at the SPCA.
By opening her home as a safe place for neglected, abused or abandoned puppies and dogs, Jennifer fulfills her desire to help animals that have lost their way. She has rescued and rehabilitated over 50 dogs and puppies. During their stay, these dogs gain the confidence and training needed to make their next home, their forever home.
Jennifer believes that if dogs and humans are to live together peacefully, they must understand, respect and trust each other. Through reward-based training and behavior therapy, she can help you achieve the peaceful environment for which you and your dog strive!
Jennifer shares her home with her partner, two beautiful children of the human variety and two beautiful children of the K-9 variety.
