Jamie D. Flanagan | Senior Trainer
Our company owner, 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.
