My goal at Companion Canines is to help your dog become a happy, well-balanced and reliable companion. We offer a unique opportunity to find out what training methods work best along with giving you information to make you and your dog’s lives better. Scientific learning theories have proven canines to be a social- and community-driven animal, each with their own specific language.

All of the training done with Companion Canines is built around positive reinforcement as well as non-physical punishment. Through mental and physical activity, the goal for your animal is to become a well-balanced family member. As a result, your dog will not be lonely or develop destructive behavior when left alone, and will be better behaved during human and social interactions.

Dogs won’t always be perfect, but they certainly deserve to be happy!


Interview with Ron Jolly (WTCM 103.5 | 93.5), November 7, 2018.

We love Janet!! Janet and her boarding training helped make our bernedoodle puppy the best boy he can be. At seven months, he now has good (consistent) manners and quickly responds to our commands. He also minds our six year old daughter and she can walk him with a loose leash. Since he already outweighs her, this was important to us. My husband and I didn’t want to be dragged around either! We really appreciate that Janet understands how to train both pets AND their owners and is committed to ensuring success. Thank you, Janet!!

Janet took our Shepherd pup and turned him into a perfect gentleman. She is the original dog whisperer. Somehow the dogs (we also havea Schnauzer) seem to know what Janet is thinking and wants them to do b/4 she gives a command and they just want to please her. She is amazing. The dogs LOVE her and she loves them. We have recommended her many times to friends and no-one is ever disappointed. P.S. We Love Janet too
