Behavior & Training Specialist
Jan has loved animals since she was a child. She was always bringing home and caring for all kinds of stray animals, from cats to new born rabbits. Her love of animals grew as did her curiosity of how they interacted with humans. She was amazed at their capacity to learn and understand new concepts as well as their ability to read human emotion. She started working with dogs professionally in 2000. She utilized several techniques but found positive training to be the most effective for human and canine. In 2010 she joined Freedom Dogs as a trainer and became a “Clicker Trainer”. That really opened up a whole new world of training possibilities.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our clients do the talking!
“Throughout my acquaintance with AJ, I can honestly attest to the qualities that I, as a retired school administrator, admire: forthrightness, timeliness, a desire to learn and to grow in one’s profession, and a kindly and patient manner with both animals and his associates. AJ recently administered an hour- long massage to Lily. In order to be successful, he had to gain her trust, which he very soon accomplished. He was ascertaining any apparent tightness in her joints and ligaments. She allowed him to do as he pleased with her, and his love, expertise and patience were very self-evident; it was very interesting to observe. ”Joan Z.
“Watching age catch up with Taj, my best friend, has been hard on both of us. Taj, in his prime, was a mid air snagging frisbee rock star and the best trail dog a girl could ever want. On occasion, since he turned 10, his back will spasm and he requires medicine and a few days of house rest. Now at 12, Taj’s muscles and joints are sore more often than not. That is where AJ comes in, he is able to quickly assess Taj’s problem areas and provides relief that has a visible impact days after treatment. AJ’s patient and gentle manner had Taj relaxed in no time. ”Sarah D.
“I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for Zumi!!! You are truly amazing. Zumi had a limp (from jumping off a wall) that would not go away. We had tried everything it seemed and nothing completely resolved the issue. So I was so glad to run into you and learn about how you could help. Not only did you help the inflammation subside but you also helped with her upset tummy from all the pain meds. I also really appreciated learning some things that I could do for her at home. This combination worked miracles. Zumi is now limp, pain and medicine free!!! She is definitely back to being her crazy wonderful self again.”Carey M.
