Behind the Leash
Jake, Head Trainer
My Passion for dog training started a few years ago. I was working my way up in the financial industry with the plan to become a financial advisor (not the most exciting job, but it was steady income which provided for my family of five). Needless to say we felt comfortable in our lives. We had a really young kids so we didn’t feel the need to or want the responsibility of a pet. Our minds were changed in December of 2012. Our house was robbed. In addition to changing all the locks, our family decided to get a dog to help watch the house when we’re gone for the day. We rescued Lady, a mixed breed from the shelter and felt confident that she’d fit in with our family right away. We were semi-right. Although she took to my wife and kids, Lady was very difficult to handle when it came time to go for a walk. She would end up walking us and put a strain on the family, she was just soo naughty. We decided to call a dog trainer to help figure out what we were doing wrong and why Lady wouldn’t listen to us. I was awestruck from day one when I saw Lady come on command, off leash. There was a change in our family’s relationship with Lady. We finally had the dream dog we had always imagined us having. It was then that I realized that dog training isn’t just for the dog. It’s also for the owner. It’s about helping families come together around an animal, an animal they want to be apart of their family. I was hooked!
