About the Trainer:
After returning to FL, Jessica started her professional career at Sea Worlds Discovery Cove as an Animal Trainer providing quality guest interactions with Atlantic Bottle-nosed Dolphins. Working her way up to Senior Animal Trainer, Jessica’s responsibilities increased allowing her to gain experience. This included supervising the interactions as a safety trainer, mentoring new staff members, facilitating and recording all 48 dolphins weights and measurements. All the while, she still incorporated her duties for training adult, juvenile and calf dolphins and providing interactions with the guest at the park.
During her employment with Discovery Cove, Jessica created Show and Tails, LLC. This gave her the opportunity to gain even more experience managing her own business and to share her passion to educate the public about wildlife. Jessica rescued all of the ambassador animals, most of which she raised from infants. These animals included raccoons, macaws, reptiles, squirrels, a mallard duck, degu’s and a rabbit. Jessica’s mission for Show and Tails was to educate the public on the importance of wildlife and conservation of the environment.
In 2010, Jessica became a mother and decided to concentrate on her growing family. However, in 2011, her passion to educate the public and help both people and animals overcame her. She then started Don’t Shoot Your Dog, LLC. where she could still have the opportunity to do what she loved but still maintain her responsibilities at home. Jessica created Don’t Shoot Your Dog, LLC with the mission to help pet owners understand their pets behaviors while educating them on the proper psychological training.
With the unique instruction of Jessica’s training combined with her extensive knowledge of animal behavior, you will not only gain an insight to why your pet exhibits particular behaviors but, you will also know how to correct it and extinguish it forever.
About the Training
Pawsh Pet training In-house classes are limited to 10 dogs. Each class runs for 8 weeks and is an hour long. The first night is spent with the owners only concentrating on their role with their pet.
What will the owners learn to teach their dogs?
- House manners
- A management plan called H.E.L.P.E.R.
- Basic Commands: sit, stay, come, leave it, go to your bed
- Greeting strangers
- Walk on loose leash without pulling
- Socialization techniques
The highlight of the class is that you will be taught how to train your dog to do something other then what you learned in class. This will enable the owner to continue additional training at home.
Class Supplies Needed: Non-retractable leash, collar, your dog’s favorite small soft treat such as liver or chicken. These items are available at Pawsh Pet.
