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.

Private Consultations

One on one help for you and your dog. In our initial consultation we will discuss the challenges you are facing. I will help you understand your dog’s behavior and come up with a plan to manage and change the behavior. Should you wish to move forward, we will discuss the beginning steps of a training plan to modify your dog’s behavior.

Separation Anxiety Training

Are you struggling with leaving your dog home alone? Separation anxiety is a panic disorder that can manifest as barking, panting, pacing, urinating or defecating, drooling, and destruction when left alone. I can help you determine if separation anxiety training is right for your dog and implement a plan to treat this challenging behavior disorder.
