My name is Jaimie, I’m a South Florida dog trainer specializing in behavior modification. Using dog psychology, I focus on building relationships between human and dog based on: mutual trust, respect, clear communication, and mindfulness. I help dogs understand how to navigate our human world and teach humans the language of dog to better lead them through it. I keep training simple and use a relationship-based approach that yields real results without intimidating dogs.
Years ago, I was right where you are today. Before I was a trainer, I was an owner and rescue worker wanting to be the best version of myself so I can help my dogs and the rescues be their very best self.
I’ve been working with dogs since 2018, starting in rescue. I started with obedience training to help dogs get adopted faster. We had a few long timers that weren’t getting out due to behavior issues, including one of my own pack members now, Harley. I immersed myself in learning all things dog psychology and behavior modification, and shadowed multiple trainers. I had a knack for it and fell in love with watching dogs grow and blossom. I’m a forever student of the dog — always open to furthering my knowledge and continuing till this day to travel nationwide, attending seminars and workshops. That and my hands-on experience with hundreds of dogs has taught me so much — we never stop learning!
Your dog is my passion. The fulfillment I get watching dogs transform; to see their anxiety, fear and stress melt away by giving them confidence through leadership is an indescribable feeling.
My goal with Balanced K9 is to keep dogs in their home. I want to lower the amount of dogs surrendered or returned to the shelter due to preventable and trainable behavioral issues. Harmony and joy can be found for families struggling with their dog and I would like to help!
