Jessica Patterson

Founder & CEO

Throughout my upbringing, I was involved in animal rehabilitation, particularly in the rescue and recovery of animals. My initial foray into professional dog training began at the age of 18, which deepened my love for this vocation. Pursuing my passion, I have continued my professional development through courses and seminars, consistently expanding my knowledge base in order to provide optimal assistance to the dogs under my care. Prior to establishing my own company, I had the privilege of working with five of the foremost dog training facilities in Virginia. My business has since expanded to South Carolina, and I remain committed to advocating for dogs and volunteering regularly for animals in need.

Hey there, I just wanted to remind you of how important you are to your furry friend's training. You are the captain of this ship, and your consistency and guidance are the key to your pup's success. So, let's make training tail-wagging fun! Your dog looks up to you for instruction, and with your positive and supportive approach, they'll be eager to learn new tricks and commands. Remember, all your efforts and dedication will pay off in the long run, and your doggo will shower you with endless love and gratitude. So, keep up the good work, and let's make training a pawsome experience for both you and your furry buddy!
