Energy Clearing & Balancing Treatments
Does your animal have an issue that seems to be due to an imbalance, a health condition, high stress, anxiety, fear, aging or any other issue that training alone has not helped? A series of energy treatments can be very supportive in helping your animal get to a turning point where they can be helped and made to feel more balanced and able to cope in this world.
Certified Behavior Training
Private In Home Training is individual training sessions which would address your dog's problem behaviors such as:
· walking nicely on a leash
· greeting people without jumping
· introducing new baby, toddlers and children
· general paying attention & focus issues
· basic cues (sit, come, stay, rollover...)
· super recall (or lack there of)
· off-leash etiquette
· doorbell reactions
· calming down hyper-activity
· chewing, dogging, barking (backyard behaviors)
· introducing new pets to the old pets
· garbage picking & counter surfing
· chasing cars, bikes, rabbits, squirrels…
....and any other behavior where you are experiencing a road block and would just like some extra guidance and individual support.
Reactive Dog Support
Ideal for managing more complex and recurring behaviors you have tried to eliminate but know you need more support to be successful. Stressful behaviors such as:
- extreme fearfulness
- leash reactivity
- aggression issues
- fence fighting
- teeth showing, growling, snapping
While working on your dog's training you will also discover how your own personal energy is connected to your pet's energy and behavior.
Make daily life harmonious by creating a powerful transition in your relationship.
You can register for either our Pawsitive Reactions Program or our Intensive Transitions Program.

Jennifer Mann CPDT-ka
After a long day at the office, the highlight of Jenn’s day was heading to the shelter after work to volunteer as a Head Start Trainer. She would teach the homeless dogs some basic manners to help them be considered polite by potential adopters. That was back in 2004… now that hobby has turned into running her own animal behavior company. This came about when Jenn learned the science behind the method of positive reinforcement training… and realized that it’s not about bribing your dog with treats - it's about two-way communication and respect. She was amazed by the success of this method and in 2008 completed the Calgary Humane Society’s Dog Trainers Apprenticeship program. Feeling everyone should know these life changing methods, she now teaches classes to coach dog owners of all breeds. Crediting the science-based, positive reinforcement method with teaching her patience and to be a better wife, mother, friend, teacher, sister, daughter and of course… dog owner. Jenn is so grateful for the opportunity to teach and learn with each animal & owner who cross her path.
In 2012, Jenn started combining energy work with her training and found she could bring animal's behavior and owner's awareness to new levels. This creates amazing relationships and ties in to another of Jenn's passions, Health & Wellness for people and animals.
Then in 2013 Jenn began her education as a Master Empowerment Coach for Women at SWAT Institute. This has been a great help with empowering dog owners to be their best selves, so that that their dogs will reflect that too!
Jenn also volunteers with rescued Farm Animals at various animal sanctuaries. Clicker training pigs & chickens has now become part of her practice, as they are becoming more common as family pets!
