Janet currently has four dogs of her own – a Greyhound, a Miniature Schnauzer, and two Scottish Terriers, all but one of whom were adopted from a rescue or shelter.Fostering and adopting dogs with behavioral problems has given Janet the understanding and empathy that is so important in a pet dog trainer. She has been through it herself and fully understands the frustration that can result from having a dog or puppy with “issues.”
When you take a Think Pawsitive! training class, you can be assured that Janet wants to see your dog succeed as much as you do!4-week sessions begin each month on Wednesdays from 7-8PM.
