"It is difficult to determine whether Jena is a dog trainer or a people trainer! We adopted our one year old "rescue" dog from Texas and, having had other dogs, thought we were starting with a good basic personality but wanted our Bella to adjust properly to her new home and family. We didn't know what to expect.
Jena's approach is different -- it is individually tailored and she worked with us in our home. She spent much of her first visit understanding us and evaluating Bella in her home environment. We learned so much about dog behavior and thinking that helped us tremendously throughout the training.
Jena taught us to be consistent no matter how frustrating it was at times; to build positive behavior from Bella's natural behavior and instincts; and, to just play and have fun with our dog.
We have to step back now and reflect on the dog we first brought through the door and the one we have now just 6 months later -- confident; obedient; a "controllable" squirrel chaser; and, a pleasure to take for a walk. Training with Jena was the best investment we could have made for us and our dog's future.”

“We were considering finding another home for our dog because we thought we could not correct his problem behaviors. It turns out that he (and we!) simply needed some training. After a few short sessions, we noticed a marked improvement. We learned how to communicate better with our dog. This investment provided a lifetime of rewards for our dog and our family. Capital Dog Training made being a dog owner more enjoyable.”
“Jena’s successful, motivational approach is impressive. We’re confident that her personal training yields the best results for our clients.”

“Jena has been terrific in training me and my English Bulldog. In a few short months my dog's behavior has gone from spastic and not listening to being a very happy, playful and well mannered dog. If anyone is looking for a great dog trainer they should call Jena at Capital Dog Training.”

“After meeting with very little success at a group clicker training class, we thankfully found Jena. She has helped us train our VERY energetic Lab/German Shorthaired Pointer mix. Without her help, I don't think we could have kept our wonderful Margie. Thanks Jena for all your support, and for understanding that sometimes, crazy hunting dogs wind up as pets. Capital Dog Training Rocks!”
