About Jacki
Jacki has a life long history of animal companions including dogs, cats, horses, ducks, rats, ferrets, lizard, snakes, fish, and a frog named Fred. At age 5 she was training her own dogs and was walking the neighbors dogs for fun. At 7 Jacki was competing full time with her first horse and later spent 4 years on the Nebraska race track exercising horses. In 1989, she joined the National Guard and served her country in Saudi Arabia for 6 months. While there she adopted stray dogs Lady, Bandit, and Dusty and trained them all. Read more.
Why does my dog do that?
As a dog owner, one of the first questions you may ask is; "Does my new companion need training?" Yes, and so do you! Whether you are intentionally teaching him or not, your canine friend is always learning -- and this is true not just for puppies but also for older and adult dogs. If you do not teach your pet your rules, he will invent his own. Training allows caregivers to safely and humanely control their dog's behavior. Positive training enhances the bond between dog and owner, and helps ensure that your dog will respond happily to your instructions.
Canine Good Citizen Evaluation
Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Read more.
