“I sought out Jey after my dog, Angus, started exhibiting reactive behavior. Angus did a three week board and train, and it made a world of difference. Jey’s passion, knowledge, and expertise with animals made her the right person for the job. She gave Angus and I the right tools to make sure I feel confident with continuing his training at home while still ensuring that Angus and I get to lead a fully enriched lives.”
- Charlee P. (Angus's mom)
“I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with Emerald Dog Training. I got connected with the owner, Jey, through the rescue I adopted my dog from. Jey gave plenty of opportunities for me to join them for his training sessions and continues to be a pillar of support whenever I have any questions. I was and STILL am very impressed with the work she does. It takes time and dedication to build the skills and communication she has. I am constantly being told how good Panda is, and it just wouldn’t have happened without Jeys’ knowledge and experience. I’m very grateful and tell almost everyone about Emerald Dog Training. 10 outta 10 would do again!” - Vanessa S. (Panda's person)
"First off, I wanna say Jey’s work with our 95 lb leash-aggressive Great Pyrenees-mix was nothing less that remarkable (I tried other trainers)! Her training methods changed not only the quality of life for our dog but my whole family’s quality of life. Marlo, now 3, started her life as a stray and has been face with multiple returns to the shelter which only lead to her developing more behavioral issues and insecurities. During the time before Jey intervened Marlo was only getting worse and worse, she began dragging towards me moving semis, other dogs, and birds while neurotically barking/growling. One day, she was able to yank me off my feet drag me across a street, down a side walk, up someone’s driveway, and to their door just to get to the another dog all on my stomach. At that Point I was so fearful of taking her outside, that contacted Jey as a last hope. I was nervous because I was already invested with another trainer, and I started to believe her behavior could never be reversed, but boy was I was wrong. We signed Marlo up for the 3 week board and train and it was the closest thing to a miracle. Jey gave me regular updates so I could track Marlo progress. Now Marlo is home-sweet-home and I finally don’t have to be afraid to be her handler. I walked her downtown this evening something we’ve never been able to do, we ran into other dogs and trucks and she made me so proud! Bottomline, HIRE JEY!
P.S. It’s a learning process for you and dog so don’t think you won’t have to put any work in."
- Alexia P. (Marlo's mom)
"Tino is a highly reactive little dog. Before I came to Jey for intervention, Tino's world was shrinking because he could not be trusted around other dogs, even on leash. Jey has given me the tools and knowledge to turn this around. She is a talented trainer with a unique skill for breaking down human and dog behaviors in a way that allowed me to genuinely understand the "why" behind obedience training. Our biggest breakthroughs have happened when I gain insight into Tino's brain and see the world through his eyes. The more I understand, the more I am able to generalize Jey's lessons to our everyday life, accumulate small wins, deepen my relationship with Tino and broaden his world. I highly recommend Jey for any dog handler, and especially for reactive dogs." - Erica P. (Tino's mom)
"We (my dog Louie and I) looove Jey. From day one, Louie recognized Jey as a confident pack leader and I was comforted with Jey's daily text updates on Louie's progress. My dog was starting to get on an aggressive path so I signed him up for boarding and six private lessons. Worth every dollar as Jey helped me be a better leader, trained Louie advanced basics (sit, down, heel, etc. but with longer duration and better focus) and still checks in periodically. A thousand thank yous to Emerald Dog Training." Lani K. (Louie's mom)
"Jey realized right away what Olie needed for his training and she was right on. He is a much happier pup now as am I. We feel lucky to have found her and would recommend her to anyone." Bill C. (Olie's dad)
"Working with Jey has been life changing for my husband and I! We adopted a nervous and fearful dog name Eve in Nov 2020, and were having troubles with her and my husbands relationship, how to deal with certain behaviors, and getting her to eat. We’d worked with some other trainers before and saw no progress and probably made things worse. Then we were recommended Jey and did a 2 week board and train with Eve. Jey kept us up to date each day with her and Eve’s progress and even sent us videos. When Eve came back home she was more confident and had learned some basic training, and she actually eats meals now! Just having Eve be able to sit on command has really helped us when she starts to panic in certain situations and has given us the building blocks to build her up. With Jey's advice and tools my husband and Eve have been able to start rebuilding their relationship from the ground up, and she is beginning to act more relaxed around him. When we have questions/concerns about training or behaviors Jey is always willing to give us a quick call and offer guidance. Eve still will need lots of time and work, but we know that if anything comes up we have Jey as a resource! We highly recommend her to anyone!" Amber S. (Eve's mom)
"I have so many things I could say about Jey but here's the quick version!! We had a wild corgi (Gus) who pulled relentlessly on the leash, bit, and jumped all over guests. He was crazy wild. After the board and train with Jey he in 3 weeks was doing perfect recall (would come when I said come), no longer jumps on guests, can walk in a perfect heal (even when I use my wheelchair) and never pulls on his leash. Gus also learned a command called "place" where he stays on his dog bed and stays perfectly. Also he doesn't eat shoes, socks, or bite now so we could not b happier. We love Jey and she made our Gus into a dream dog. You will absolutely not regret working with Jey she is the very best." Olivia C. (Gus's mom)
"I was ready to give my English Bulldog, Jasper back to the breeder. I didn’t have the time or energy needed to train such a headstrong, stubborn boy. Jey was my last hope. She didn’t fail us. Jasper is so we’ll behaved now it’s like night and day. I highly recommend Jey. Her methods work and I would not hesitate to use her services again if I have another stubborn tank of a dog. Thank you Jey." Valarie W. (Jasper's mom)
"Jey gave extra on my behalf by training my dog to use the tread mill and Jey had to train my dog to never lunge because I have broken my left leg at my ankle, so I do not have good balance. This was accomplished plus many other ways to help me enjoy my sweet dog more. I highly recommend Emerald Dog Training. My goals were met and even exceeded." - Peggy M. (Ginger's mom)
"Jey is AWESOME! Our German Shepherd mix pup was getting out of control. Aggressive, fearful, obnoxious. 3 weeks with Jey and he was a new "man". A pleasure to be with and walk and take into a venue with no anxiety. Jey is our go to trainer and should be yours to." Dan and Noelle P. (Archie's people)
"Jey is an absolutely outstanding dog trainer. I am one of many that added a "pandemic puppy" to my home and not only did he not get as much socialization as he needed, the poor fella had a really bad dog experience at a local park which created a few fear based behavioral issues but made something as simple as a walk very very stressful for both of us; constant pulling and terrified of everything legit overnight. While he wanted to go for a walk he was immediately eager to get it over with and would startle at every little thing. I have raised and trained many dogs over the years (including a great dane who passed early 2020 - hence new pup) but this was new territory and I needed help. Jey to the rescue!! Jey was and is awesome!! She knows her breeds and her method works. All you have to do is trust the process and understand that both you and your dog have learning and work to do. Jey will give you and your dog all the tools you need, you just need to learn, listen, do and repeat. Cy and I continue to reaffirm the training foundation laid by Jey and I highly recommend her, her methods and her program to anyone hesitating." Sarah D. (Cy's mom)
"When we first brought home our adorable and cuddly puppy, we were instantly in love. He completed our family. We diligently took him to obedience classes and practiced his new commands religiously. Still, as first time dog owners, we struggled to channel our pups willful nature and curb his playful puppy bite. When we were referred to Jey we were thankful for the time she took to answer our many, many questions and concerns, and the confidence and no-nonsense dog-trainingphilosophy she had. We did the 3-week board and train and it was a transformative experience for our puppy. It gave us the tools and foundation our family needed (pup included!) to thrive!" - Karen K. (Pippin's mom)
"Jey is truly amazing! She loves dogs and it shows in her training and responsiveness to my sweet puppy, Chewie. I highly recommend Jey for training puppies their much needed manners and respectability. - Karen K. (Chewy's mom)"
