Jennifer has always had a passion for working with animals and dreamed of training dogs since she was a little girl. She started her journey in 2006 when she was hired to work at a kennel. In 2018 she left this job but found herself gravitating back to the world of bird dogs through volunteering in the training field in exchange for an opportunity to learn.
The first chukar she ever planted immediately flew away when she turned around. Since then, she has not only learned the art of planting birds but what it takes to be an effective handler. In August 2021, her childhood dream came true with a full-time training position. Since then, she has endeavored to grow her knowledge and skills as a trainer.
Jennifer recognizes the importance of partnership between humans and dogs and strives to give every owner the tools they need to confidently handle their pups. She appreciates that every dog is unique, and works to bring forth the best out of any pup, whether they come from championship lines or a rescue.
When she is not training, Jennifer enjoys being outside, writing, and flying planes.
“Dog training is not really about teaching a dog to do something but instead giving a dog something to do. And when you give a dog something to do, you give him a purpose.”
