Classes and Seminars

NEW! Online Seminars Available!


Have you ever wondered what your canine companion is thinking? Most dog communication is non-verbal, so a lot of it goes right over our human heads! Learn to better understand your dog and how to greet and interact with dogs safely. This ~75 minute presentation has lots of great pictures and illustrations to make it fun and engaging for dog owners of all ages! Time for Q&A is included.

This seminar is offered on a monthly basis. This seminar is FREE right now for a limited time!


Dogs at Play is a fascinating look into canine interactions, dog play, and dog park safety. This ~90-minute presentation is full of pictures, videos, and helpful information for all dog owners, whether you are new to dog ownership or a veteran. Time for Q&A is included.

This seminar is offered on a monthly basis for the great price of only $15 per household!

This presentation assumes the audience has some knowledge of canine body language, so it is recommended that you attend Learn to Speak Dog before attending this seminar.

Group Classes that Jen currently teaches include:

  • Dog Manners 1: Basic manners for pups 5 months and up.
  • Shy and Fearful Dog Manners: This class is for dogs who are sensitive and fearful of people, dogs, places, or things. It combines learning manners with learning about how to help your dog become less fearful and grow their confidence!

  • Reactive Rover: This class is for dogs who lunge, bark, growl, etc. on leash when they see other dogs. This class is designed to help both dogs that are reactive because they are afraid of other dogs AND dogs who like other dogs, but tend to make a big fuss when seeing them on leash! This class takes place indoors.
  • BAT for Reactive Dogs: Like Reactive Rover, this class is for dogs who are reactive on leash when they see other dogs. This class takes place outdoors and implements BAT 2.0 techniques.
