“Penny is a rambunctious, but very sweet, black labrador/beagle mix. We knew we wanted to bring her to classes, but we didn’t know of anyone who taught them. Then one day, we ran into some friends on the Eastern Trail who had nothing but good things to say about Jessica and her Beginner Training Class for their Coonhound. We decided to bring Penny to Jessica’s Beginner Training Class and have nothing but good things to say about her and her incredible knowledge. She handled Penny, and all the other dogs, like they were her own during class and demonstrations. She was able to provide us with some great tips and tricks on how to improve Penny’s listening skills (that’s the Beagle in her). Often times, Jessica would stay a few minutes extra after to class to answer some more questions we had. We’re novice first time dog owners. Ha! Not once did she make us feel like she had more important things to do. She really cares about the dogs, but, she also really cares about the humans, too. We would highly recommend her to anyone.”

“Remington and I have been training with Capable Canine for 3 different training session. Jess is an amazing trainer with a lot of knowledge with training young and older dogs. Remington has completes AKC CGC and AKC CCC we are working towards Therapy dog. What I like the most about training with Jess is when ever possible she tries to train in different location so Remy doesn’t get use to one place for training. He understand that training is an on going know matter were we are. Thank you Jess for always being there to help with bettering my baby Remington.”
“Jess has helped me teach my dog Andy to become a polite and well behaved dog. When Andy was having trouble learning to lay down, Jess had multiple suggestions to help me teach him how to lay down. She always wants to make sure we get the most out of class. Jess always makes sure to ask if we have any questions or issues with our dogs. My puppy Andy is always excited to go to class. He always has a lot of un and learns a lot too!”
“Hello. We are Andorra and Sarge. We took Jessica’s basic obedience class and we learned so much! She was so nice and smelled so good. She has the best treats too! If she ever wants to use you to demonstrate DO IT! She’ll give you something really tasty. I think our parents liked the class too. They seemed to have learned just as much as we did. We hope to see her again soon because we really want to become therapy dogs.”
“If you’re looking to deepen the relationship with your dog, and need a passionate and dedicated instructor to help make that connection stronger, then having Jessica facilitate, and establish that bind is truly one of the best experiences I’ve had.”
“Thank you Jessica for helping us with our 2 dogs, is never to late to start training your dogs. (Lenny is 4 years old and Niño is 9 months old).”
“Jessica is such a great trainer! Our dogs, Finn and Norman, were quite a handful, but Jessica showed us that they were indeed trainable. They’re much better behaved thanks to her working with them AND us. We learned many cues and commands that make our lives with these two (energetic) dogs that we love MUCH EASIER!”
“My dog Pashka and I had such a great experience with Jessica and her training. Much of it was training me!!! Jessica is very calm, caring and knowledgable. She continues to be a source of information for me. Pashka will be in another one of her classes in the near future, Thanks Jess!”
“Jessica gave us great advice for our dog,Odie and have us skills we can use all the time with him! She is knowledgeable and loves what she does :).”
