Jodi grew up amongst dogs, and has been around them her whole life. Having a busy lifestyle wasn’t conducive to owning her own dogs for many years, but that changed a number of years ago, and Jodi adopted her two current dogs: Odie, a 8-year old GSD mix, and Grover, a 6-year old Australian Shepherd.
Jodi became keenly fascinated with dog behaviour and training, and chose to pursue formal education. She is currently studying canine behaviour and animal learning through the Jean Donaldson Dog Training Academy, a comprehensive 2-year program. The program has rigorous standards in evaluation and testing.
Over the past five years, Jodi has taken many classes with her Australian Shepherd, Grover, including Agility, Rally-O, Tricks, and FitPaws. She has dabbled in herding, and her current new endeavours with Grover are a Stunt Dog class and Treibball.
Jodi has taken a number of classes with Odie, but became very aware of his reactivity issues towards some other dogs, so the best class option for him was an outdoor Over-Reactivity dog class.
Having a passion for dogs and learning as much as she can about them, Jodi plans to continue to try new classes and attend seminars and workshops, to increase her knowledge, and to have fun with her canine companions!
