Jen Scheidt, Head Trainer,
                                       Behavioral & Puppy Specialist 

Jen has over forty years of experience training dogs and puppies. Jen has been training dogs nearly all her life, she started at the age of twelve as a handler showing at CKC dog shows.

At fifteen Jen could be found cleaning kennels in order to gain experience as a trainee teaching Labradors to hunt and retrieve.By seventeen Jen was working full time as a veterinary assistant.

Over the years Jen has experienced many changes in training methods, from the jerk-pull method of choke chains to physically restraining the dog. Today Jen uses clicker training, positive re-enforcement, and operant conditioning style of  dog training. The end result is a well behaved dog who's tail is wagging and enjoys the experience of learning with it's handler. Having used all the various methods over decades of training dogs, Jen prides herself on keeping up with the latest techniques by continuing to attend seminars and researching proven dog training methods. 

Over the years Jen has trained many different dog breeds and sizes. Rescue dogs were always a challenging project and Jen loves the challenges.
