Hi, I’m Jackie Johnston
CTC, CPDT-KA, CSAT
I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed, Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer, and a Fear Free Certified Professional. I’ve earned my Certificate in Training and Counseling from the esteemed Academy for Dog Trainers, where I dedicated two years of rigorous study to dog behavior. My focus is on separation anxiety, but I am fluent in all aspects of behavior.
Over the years, I’ve gained experience as a dog walker, pet sitter, adoption counselor, and dog daycare attendant. My fascination for behavior and learning theory was ignited when I began volunteering with The Humane Society of Boulder Valley’s Training Center, where I eventually started working as a Training & Behavior Consultant.
My background has provided me with the most up-to-date, safe, and effective reward-based training methods and I adhere to a code of conduct that insists on transparency. Dog training is an unregulated profession. Anyone can call themselves a dog trainer, and there are no standards of care or education requirements. When we work together, you can rest assured that you and your dog are in good hands.
