How to work with Janet Smith Dog Training

What it’s like to work with Janet

I don’t train your dog for you – we train your dog TOGETHER. We will communicate and select an In Home Training program together based on your goals and your dog’s personality. Our first lessons begin in your home, after a series of In Home Lessons we take our show on the road with public group classes. Your Training Package includes all training equipment, an extensive video library, a private client Facebook group and lifelong training support. You will know upfront exactly what training will cost. I understand the selection of your trainer matters or you might not know what to select — I offer a single session visit in your home for $125, that payment can be rolled into any training program you choose.

Janet is very passionate about what she does with her dog training. She helps people understand their dogs, which allows the dogs to become a family member. Janet also is a very wonderful and very informative Scent Work (Nose Work) instructor. She gives great instructions and scenarios at class to help the dogs get their nose to odor. As well as helping us the handlers to be better understand how scent works. Janet will for sure make owning a dog a better and more enjoyable experience for the dog and owner.

Janet is the best! She takes her time with you and your dog. She gave us confidence in training our dog Brooks which in turn helped Brooks feel confident and have less anxiety!

We would absolutely recommend Janet to anyone! Our St. Bernard resuce was stubborn and reactive to other dogs. I was at a point where I didn't feel comfortable walking her alone anymore. After just ONE session with Janet, we saw a huge difference! She not only gave us a personalized plan of action, but included several strategies to help us achieve our desired goals. It has been so amazing to be able to enjoy life with our sweet dog!!
