About Jamie Juda

Why I’m a personal dog trainer

Dog training classes have their place, but I find they don’t do busy people justice. It’s just too much emphasis on results in the classroom to see results at home. And all the homework! Who has time?

I want my clients to see real change in their dogs. That’s why I work one-on-one with a small number of clients at a time. This allows me to customize the training plan to your goals and actual life, so we have a real chance for success. It allows me to come to your home, both for your convenience and so your dog learns right in the thick of real life—where it matters.

It’s also why I encourage use of my Board & Train program. As a professional dog trainer, I can get the job done much faster for you. And training your dog in my home as part of my family means I can then get the results easily transferred to yours.

Training & Credentials

I want to take the best care possible of you and your dog, and that means taking good care of my own professional development, even after 19 years on the job. Most recently I completed Michael Shikashio’s Aggression in Dogs Master course. I am a graduate of CATCH Canine Trainer’s Academy and have my CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed) from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I am also a certified service dog coach with Cooperative Paws and a certified Doggone Safe instructor.

I am also a proud member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, and the Pet Professionals Guild. These organizations strive to create high scientific and ethical standards in a currently unregulated industry. I support their efforts and strive to meet or exceed their expectations.

My Specialty

My specialty is behavior modification with a focus on aggression. For this reason I have always taken a scientific approach to training. I regularly seek continuing education opportunities via professional courses, conferences, seminars and reading. I’ve also created this video which explains why you won’t see anything in any of my social media channels on dogs with aggression or anxiety disorders.

My Household

I understand busy households. I share my house with a husband, three kids, and three dogs. My furry pups include two Newfoundlands (Koda, and Lolli) and a Pomeranian named Missy.

Nothing is better than a home where all two- and four-legged family members fire on all cylinders, and I can’t wait to help create that household harmony for you.

Jaime is amazing! We researched so many different dog trainers and are we are so thrilled we found Jaime! Goose came home able to nicely walk on his leash, better impulse control leaving our counters and shoes alone, and loves his place! We are so thrilled we found her and trusted her with our 1 year golden retriever puppy. She works with each dog and individualizes their training to be able to shape behavior while still maintaining their goofy personalities. We love her positive training strategies focusing on redirection rather than punishing. Only draw back is she lives so far from us - that won't stop us from making the commute to use her for future sessions though! Thank you again Jaime for all that you have taught goose (and us!). And thank you for your continued help and support after he came home too.

Jaime is AMAZING!!! I truly believe her passion, experience, and expertise is second to none. We inquired with our 6-month old golden retriever puppy named Stanley as we were looking to build a very strong training foundation. Stanley definitely had some areas to work on as he constantly pulled while we were on walks and was easily distracted by anything in our path. He would bite constantly and didn't understand the meaning of the word "no" to anything from grabbing our shoes to jumping on the couch or kitchen counter. Jaime was truly the response to our prayers in finding assistance and we have absolutely zero regrets in sending Stanley to Jaime's 3-week board-and-train program. Stanley truly came back a different dog as he walks great, grasps the meaning of the word "no", and comes when called. We also have an effective training plan going forward to build off of everything Jaime did. The daily video updates we received were so helpful and knowing Jaime continues to serve as a resource for when we have questions has been incredible. We would absolutely recommend Jaime to anyone looking for a dog trainer!

After speaking with the trainer and sharing all of my two dogs problems, current situation, and our needs the trainer recommended training in their home environment not a board and train program. Unfortunately at this time she does not offer this type of training. Although we went with another trainer I truly appreciate her input and guidance on our situation.

Jaime is AMAZING. She understands dog behavior and she’s passionate in teaching her clients about it. Dallas came home from Jaime’s board and train program a happy and calm dog! Jaime sends video and email updates every day (except no video Sundays) of how your dog is doing and training progress. She has safety protocols in place such as safety leash clips, long lines, and airtags to ensure your dog is safe in her care. Dallas came home CRATE TRAINED, no more biting/digging the crate at 3/4am. He is no longer eating everything he sees on our walks and we would have to deal with stomach issues on and off. Dallas is so excited to stay in his “place” when we are cooking/eating dinner. Jaime is always one text/email/phone call away for ANY question (sorry, I know I bother you a lot lol). You can really kick back and enjoy your dog.

I have used Jaime now with 2 of my dogs. I’m happy to enthusiastically recommend her! You will not find anyone more knowledgeable about animal behavior. She takes your dog into her home for 3 weeks and is diligent and caring with the training. Both times I was amazed with the dog returned to me. She leaves you with a binder with explanations of behaviors, and how to reinforce the training your pet received. She is also a text or an email away to answer any questions that arise or situations that pop up. Long after your pet has been with her, she remains very responsive and helpful to ensure you have a wonderful and well behaved dog. Don’t live with bad behavior, get Jaime! Here is a picture of my two. Now I only have to say one word and these two now go sit on their cot which make situations like people ringing doorbells or coming in your home stress free!

We started with Jaime with the initial consultation and then one-on-one sessions with our new pup. Those sessions were great but we realized that he definitely needed more hands-on, constant training and decided on Jaime's board and train. Best decision ever! That rock-solid daily training and socialization helped so much! He listens so much better and while we still have some things to work on (based on his breeds), overall it is leaps and bounds from where he was before we did the B&T. We continue to work with him and re-enforcing the training Jaime gave him and she's always there for our follow-up questions. So glad to have found Jaime and could not have been happier with what she's done for our pup!

We are so thankful we found Jaime & decided to go with our gut instinct & work with her & we are SO glad we did!! Our puppy Bailey, a mini Goldendoodle was showing signs of aggression & we were concerned we wouldn’t be able to keep her as our family dog. We put her in Jaime’s 21 day board & train program & she did a complete 180! Her expertise, her daily check in videos with her progress & the training & info she gave after she came home helped us incorporate the skills at home & we are thrilled to say we have the best, well behaved, loving family dog! She is so knowledgeable, professional & detailed & I love that if I need anything, she is always responsive! If you are looking for an exceptional trainer, Jaime is the best!!!

We contacted Jamie regarding our puppy, Ellie, and Jamie responded immediately. I had communicated to Jamie that Ellie was not sleeping, she was acting out more than a typical puppy with jumping and biting and that we just couldn't seem to get her on track in any area. We had a consult with Jamie and signed up for a three week training program. However, we were given strict instructions in the meantime before Ellie would begin her three weeks with Jamie. We began to see a difference in Ellie within three days so that by the time we dropped her off with Jamie, she was ready to work. What Jamie accomplished with Ellie is miraculous. Ellie walks beautifully on the leash, she sit/stays, down/stays, goes in her crate easily, and is an absolutely love. She does not jump and greets new people calmly. You can tell that Ellie is crazy excited by the speed of her tail wagging but she is not giving into her impulses. Truly amazing. We loved Jamie's approach of positive reinforcement and using lack of reward instead of punishment. Jamie has been available to us at all times to answer questions and provide clarification. Jamie assured us that even though the three weeks had ended, we will always have her as a source of support. I cannot say enough about the entire experience. Jamie is truly amazing and clearly loves what she does; it shows in the dogs. Ellie is so happy and playful and has truly bonded with each member of our family. She is an incredible dog and we have Jamie to thank for that.
