My name is Jaimie. I’m a dog trainer specializing in behavior modification. Using dog psychology, I focus on building relationships between humans and dogs based on: trust, respect, clear communication, and calmness. I help dogs understand how to navigate our human world and teach humans the language of dogs to better lead them through it. I keep training simple and use a balanced approach that yields real results without intimidating dogs.
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 now one of my own pack members, Harley. This broke my heart. I immersed myself in learning all things dog psychology and I shadowed multiple trainers. Behavior modification is a whole other spectrum but I had a knack for it and fell in love with watching dogs grow and blossom.
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 when with Balanced K9 is to keep dogs in their home. I want to lower the number of dogs surrendered/returned to the shelter due to preventable and trainable behavioral issues. Harmony and joy can be found in families struggling with their dog and I would like to help!
