Meet the Training Wheels Team

Our staff is specially trained to recognize and understand dog behavior to ensure that each pup is safe and comfortable during their stay.


Jamie Flanagan | Senior Trainer

Our company owner and founder, Jamie began her career training dogs in 2008 and is now one of the most respected dog behavior experts in Colorado. 


She is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner and a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. 

Jamie handles our more significant behavior cases and court-ordered training but her favorite students are tiny dachshunds with huge attitude! 

Jamie is passionate about helping people who think their dog is a lost cause or have seen other trainers that have made their dog's behavior worse! A little science goes a long way.

Ongoing education is incredibly important for all our staff, but Jamie says the dogs are her best teachers. Ask her what they've taught her lately.


Jamie Nuss | Boarding Operations Manager

Jamie is a Colorado native and dog lover for life.


Her previous experience in Animal Sheltering and Animal Control means she has extensive training in humanely housing and handling pets. 


Jamie has filled several roles as she's grown with Training Wheels and we are excited to have her back on staff as Operations Manager. 

Ask Jamie for top secret recommendations on off-leash hikes in Boulder.

Chase Bonner | Business Operations Manager

Chase is part owner and keeps the business side of Training Wheels running smoothly.


He's fond of saying "If I'm doing things right you won't ever know there was a problem."

Chase works remotely and may be solving our problems from halfway around the world. Ask him where he's been lately!

Amazing Volunteers

We are lucky to have a handful of devoted volunteers who help us provide the dogs with extra love and attention and assist with special projects around the ranch.

You may see our volunteers helping with training and enrichment, taking someone on a pup cup field trip or piloting the ride-on lawn mower.
