Your Canine Coach

Jessica Greenwell, CPDT-KA, SDC

Jessica started her career working with and training animals over a decade ago. She began this journey when working as a professional group dog walker and pet sitter servicing the city of Toronto. During this time, Jessica acquired invaluable hands on skills and experience working with many different breeds and personality types as well as safely and ethically managing groups of dogs. Jessica specialized in walking groups on and off leash as well as private training walks for reactive or fearful dogs. In addition to this, she spent many years training and working with dogs in local animal shelters, directly with foster parents.

Her career also focused on managing a successful dog daycare & writing fear free training programs for company staff members. Jessica also spent years mentoring under Ontario’s top certified behaviour consultants and obtained the hands on skills & knowledge required to provide training programs that work.

Jessica currently specializes in early development education through obedience and puppy training. She is extremely passionate about educating her clients and the public on understanding the importance of canine behaviour. Her classes, private training & customized service dog coaching provide exceptional experiences to empower all clients to find their inner super powers in themselves and their canine companions.

Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“You are a miracle worker! We haven’t had a house this quiet since we got the dogs. We’ve been consistently playing the “find it” game in the morning with half their kibble and they love it. Pickles has taken a step back with the barking- I think something just clicked for him. We got pizza delivered yesterday- this is usually something that causes non stop barking until we carry him away. We didn’t even know it had arrived!”

“Dog Grrrl is absolutely amazing. Jessica is beyond knowledgeable and had addressed to every single concern I had with my new puppy Dexter. I will and have been recommending her to my all friends that own dogs. So impressed and I can’t wait to work with her again because the training sessions are so positive and fun!”

” We loved your understanding of dog behaviours and why they do what they do. We appreciate your ability to explain it & develop training goals to suit our specific needs, so that our sessions were goal focused. Your flexibility and genuine personality sets you apart from others within the trade. Nellie and I adore you. We’d love to train with you again!”
