Jake

Jake first started working with dogs and people throughout high school at the BCSCPA, teaching kids how to care for their pets.

When he and Tanya started their Walking business in 2005, they had success with training difficult dogs on walks, leading clients to request private Coaching sessions.

Since then, Jake has continued to learn new skills through seminars and self-education. At his core, Jake excels in teaching humans. He has a wealth of dog-training knowledge, but more importantly he can explain to you how, when, and why you should use these new tools.

Jake has experience training the basics, leash walking, house manners, recall, resource-guarding, reactivity, and separation anxiety.
