"The training has given Juno and us a better life and stronger bond. We now feel confident taking Juno on long walks without her lunging and barking at other dogs or at the big, scary garbage trucks, and we have even been able to take her out to restaurants, stores, and parks where she can make new friends without jumping on them out of pure excitement."

"Jill helped work with Renegade and I, to give me the confidence to be a better owner, and trainer for his reactivity, while working on improving his threshold. We went from being reactive from across the park, to being able to go on walks without him always getting reactive to dogs on the other side of the street."

Who am I?

I'm Jill Hassevoort! I'm  a graduate and Certified Training Partner of Karen Pryor Academy (KPA CTP) and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA). Pretty much any time I'm not training dogs, I'm out hiking with Jack.  Jack and I also enjoy cooperative care training and snuggling on the couch. Before starting my career in dog training, I graduated from the University of Michigan and then spent four years teaching Spanish in Detroit high schools. That experience prepared me to teach my clients how to live and work harmoniously with their dogs. I love helping my clients understand the “why” behind their dogs’ behavior and come up with the best solutions for their unique situation.

I feel like we got more out of even one training session with Jill than we did in all 6 group training sessions at a local facility.

When I think of Jill. I remember her patience, eagerness to help and genuine love for dogs. This investment in Jill's training has paid dividends - you won't regret it!
