Meet professional puppy trainer Jan Dawson

Hello, fellow dog lover! If you haven’t had a puppy in a while it’s easy to forget what an overwhelming handful they can be. Add watching your kids, getting them to their various activities or getting to the golf course or your yoga class, or if you are struggling with health or mobility issues, a puppy can throw you life into chaos. My goal is to bring calm to the chaos of puppyhood so you can better enjoy the four-legged companionship you seek—without all the crazy!

Let’s make sure right out of the gate that your new best friend grows up into a dog who knows how to handle herself safely and gracefully around children!

Ready to enjoy a calm, well-behaved dog?
