What our wonderful clients have to say...
"Last December, I welcomed my very first dog into my life. I didn't know what to expect and my number one priority was keeping my yellow lab, Huckleberry, safe as he got bigger. Newman's Dog Training has not only helped me with all the basics of being a good mom, but Jena has also taught Huck how to be the best/obedient puppy. Additionally, Jena and her husband have made my life so much easier by coming over to my house while I'm at work to let Huck out, feed him and train him at the same time. THANK YOU for helping this, no longer nervous, first time mommy!" - Betsy, 9 month old lab
"Jena's style of dog training is unique and refreshing. We had tried everything from puppy kindergarten, to training books and even had trainers come to the house, but nothing had worked. Jena's style is about forming a respectful bond with your dog and it isn't harsh like other trainers. When other dog trainers made me feel guilty about being a "push-over" and cuddling with my dog, Jena told me it was alright. She helped teach our dog not to jump, bark and more (not just how to do tricks). Jena has really helped transform our dog and I highly recommend her!" -Emily, 1 1/2 year old golden retriever
"My collaboration with Mrs. Newman has been fantastic. Her confidence with Thunder was comforting. In two brief meetings we have made great strides. It is not cliché to say that Thunder and I are closer and happier. Thank you Jena!" – Brian, 2 1/2 Labrador/Hound Mix
Jena is amazing! We recently had our first human child, so our first born fur baby needed to relearn some behavior skills that we had always let slide in the past. We have quite a yappy small dog who think he runs the neighborhood, beach, park and our living room window especially. He is aggressive with big dogs and barks at all dogs and humans that we approach. Jena had many great ideas and techniques to get our pup to associate approaching a dog or human as a positive thing. There were so many simple changes that she suggested that made a huge difference (like trading in our retractable leash for a regular one). I was also shocked that our training actually started inside at our living room window where tons of the barking happens before we even started approaching other dogs outside. Jena has armed us with the knowledge and skills to get our dog to be that friendly, approachable dog that we've always wanted him to be.

I initially contacted Jena in order to train my Rottweiler/Great Pyrenees puppy to stop jumping on people. He is 90 pounds, and while I wanted a big dog, I didn’t want a big, scary dog. The way that Jena interacted with Jack from day one was amazing- so loving and supportive, but at the same time, he wasn’t allowed any attention for bad behavior! Her follow up with me and support was also outstanding. She makes it look easy, which in turn gave me more confidence and made the whole process a lot less overwhelming. Thank you Jena! -Beth
