“Due to an emergency, I had to care for a family dog. I've never lived with a dog (a one year old springer spaniel) so I contacted Janice Z for help with Colby's jumping and biting, particularly first thing in the morning. During our online session she gave me some tips and techniques to help manage Colby until her family was able look after her again. I am so very grateful for her advice to drop or toss kibble to redirect Colby and stop her early morning jumping and nipping — something I'd never have thought of myself and it worked like a charm, making that early morning encounter much less stressful! Her tip sheets were really helpful too, and Colby now enjoys her frozen stuffed Kong every day! I'm truly thankful for her expertise during this difficult time in our family.” ~ Sara and Colby’s family, Madison, Connecticut
“Working with Janice is an absolute pleasure! She is an excellent listener and she took the time to understand us, our dog, and our needs. She helped us think differently about dogs and training. I love her ethical and humane approach; she is an excellent teacher providing organized hands-on training. The homework instructions are clear and well supported with detailed materials, documents, and additional resources. We did both online and in-person training and both methods were very good, it was a seamless process. We have learned so much and our dog's behaviors have improved significantly. We are enjoying Scout even more!” ~ Erica J.
“I hired multiple trainers before meeting Janice, and while we definitely benefited from those trainers as well, we still struggled with our number one issue of potty training. This was causing lots of stress in my household. Janice provided me detailed step by step instructions and advice in a way that was exactly what we needed. We have been following her instructions with tremendous success! Not only has our puppy been doing great, but we finally feel like we know what we’re doing. I will absolutely go back to Janice for any additional training needs in the future!” ~ Saru
“Janice began helping us when our puppy Teddy Bear was eight weeks old. He was very active and no training. We have learned from Janice how we need to establish the right way to train and manage our puppy. Our puppy can now sit, stay, lie down, ring bell to go out, knows his 'place', and comes running from anywhere with the 'magic' word. We can't believe how far he has come (and us too). Janice is AMAZING!” ~ Cindy and JD
“Janice Z is an incredible trainer and we feel so lucky to have found her! After working with private/group training outfits in the area for 6 months, we were feeling overwhelmed that our 1 year old lab mix was having trouble outgrowing puppy behaviors that would only get harder with our growing family. Janice breaks down each skill into a series of steps. Each week she assigns a few steps as homework, progressively reinforcing the skill each day. It was incredible that in 6 weeks we went from having a dog that ignored us to one that will come racing with glee back to us even while wrestling at the dog park. We were initially worried the Zoom experience might feel limiting, but Janice has it set up incredibly well. Janice is wonderful and I'm sure we'll continue to work with her as we build new skills and continue to nurture our sweet little lab.” ~ Heena and Mike
“Lincoln has been doing wonderful! We still bark at the occasional dog but it's usually my fault since I am not ready with treats (winter gloves). We've even gone unleashed at the dog park and she responds and runs to me when called! Also, Lincoln has been uncrated for the last 3 weeks and done wonderfully. So far we are doing well and Lincoln is a happy girl!” ~ Laura
