About Jake
Hi! I'm a part time dog trainer, full time animal lover! Always love meeting new animals (and other people). I have 4 years experience training foster dogs, and am studying Cert. III in Dog Behaviour and Training with a view to specialising in guide dogs and rescue dogs.

I have experience with a wide array of breeds, ranging from Cavoodle puppies to fully grown Great Danes, and am confident in addressing aggressive behaviours.
It is my belief that positive reinforcement is the best way to train dogs, with neutral reactions having a place on occasion. I do not recommend the use of aversive techniques.

When I'm looking after another dog at their home, my dog Axel stays at home with his other custodian :-) He's very friendly and calm, and loves having friends over at ours. When looking after pets they will get a whole heap of love from me along with their consistent routine.

I'm happy to discuss a training schedule to go in conjunction with pet-sitting, which would include a detailed write up of each session and how to continue the training when you return.

Thanks so much for the care you have given our puppy Senja over the past 3 days! Jake is very professional, honest, caring and accommodating. Senja has very much enjoyed hanging out with you and Axel. She had a whole body wag going on when we arrived at your front door. Thanks for your ongoing help! …

Jake has been wonderful with puppy training and Roti was already familiar with him. Sent updates throughout the day and looked like Roti had an amazing time πŸ™‚β€¦
