Need Dog Help?
I'm here for you
If you're dreaming of a happy life with your pup but you're not sure how to get there, I can help!
Whether you need simple manners training or comprehensive behavior modification, I can help.
Hi! I'm Jess Kelley-Madera, CPDT-KA, PMCT1
If you're looking for a highly qualified trainer with a modern approach, you've found me! I'm passionate about helping dogs and humans live their best possible lives together.
I've dedicated a significant amount of time to learning evidence-based, effective training techniques to solve the most common dog behavior challenges. I specialize in helping fearful dogs and dogs with aggressive behaviors, but I also love working with puppies and more simple behavior cases. You can learn more about my services here:
Why Choose Me
Did you know that the dog training industry is unregulated? Anyone can call themselves a "dog trainer" and charge money for their training advice.
However, dog trainers who are committed to providing excellent, high quality services have the option of undergoing educational programs and becoming certified. As a bonus, many certifications require their members to sign ethical standards that govern how trainers treat clients and their dogs. You deserve to work with a highly committed, well-educated trainer!
If you'd like to learn more about my certification and ethical standards, check them out here:
Customized. You will receive behavior advice that is specific to your dog's needs and behavior history.
Safe. You will never be expected to do anything with your dog unless you understand it and feel that it's safe for your dog.
Fun. It's hard to learn when you're stressed or scared, which is why I make every effort to make learning fun for both dogs and humans.
"Jess has been an amazing help on overcoming behavioral issues with my rescue pup. We have been working mostly on car anxiety and mouthing issues and my dog showed a lot of improvement really quickly. I love the force free and kind approach Jess has!"

"A wonderful experience! ... We've done three sessions so far and I've seen a huge improvement. My dog no longer resists going for walks and seems more confident in general. Highly recommend to anyone with a nervous dog!"
