Jenny Westmoreland/I Speak K-9!
I Speak K-9 is a friendly, safe training, boarding, and stay and play center, providing services to our community, by certified experts. Jenny has been training, and showing dogs for over 25 years. She has influenced several breeds, most notably Collies and Rottweilers, and has been active in many aspects of the dog world – not only conformation, but also obedience, protection, and herding, and she has a long list of titled dogs to show for it. She is educated in Applied Animal Behavior and Experimental Psychology, but experience is what has given her the natural ability to communicate with the dogs on a level that is clearly understood by the animal. In her past, as a proven leading Trainer for a the largest Corporate pet company in the world, Jenny used her skills and her own knowledge as oppose to their traditional curriculum, to train others in her methods, always encouraging young people to become pack leaders, and use body language to present yourself. Using many different training methods – positive reinforcement being at the top of the list, but understanding that each dog is an individual – she applies the appropriate method to give the dog every opportunity for a long, happy life with the right human. She is a Professional Premium Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), What truly sets Jenny’s training apart, is that she is comfortable and confident in what she does. It is not as much a learned method, as it is what comes naturally! Few people can really handle the dog in their own element, read the dog’s body language and give you an enlightening picture into the dog’s mind. Jenny can truly “speak K-9”, and she does it just as naturally as most people breath air or speak their native language.
“I am very blessed that God gave me a gift I’ve been allowed to use to help dogs that few others can. I don’t abuse it and I don’t get greedy. I was taught that looking into the eyes of a dog will help us forgive the ignorance of the human. That, alone has helped me save many dogs from being Euthanized or re-homed. I was taught at an early age that if we shake our head and get rid of the junk, we’d think like a dog.” Jennifer Westmoreland
