About Jennifer Schneider, B.A. CPDT

Jennifer Schneider_Icepong Sang_Marymoor
I work with all ages, all breeds, all mixes, and all personalities of dogs. 
I love seeing dogs who were previously fearful or reactive, learn to live and thrive in social settings. 
I love seeing dogs become active participants in training. 
I love seeing that lightbulb moment when a dog or their owner figures something out for the first time. 
  • Professional Experience:  I have over 20 years of professional experience as a dog trainer and behavior problem specialist.

  • Formal Education:  I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Psychology (with an emphasis on Animal Behavior) from the University of Washington in 2001.

  • Professional Education:  I am always looking to improve my skills and learn new techniques.  I continue my professional education by attending seminars from some of the world's most renowned trainers. 

  • Certification:  I received national certification as a professional dog trainer in 2006.

  • Mentoring:  I am a certified mentor trainer for Animal Behavior College.

  • Personal Experience:  Like many dog trainers, I started training dogs as a child.  I have experience in both pet supply and veterinary medicine.  I found my career in dog training back in college.  It was a perfect fit and I have been doing it ever since.

  • My animals:  I have had many breeds of dogs over the years, from Terriers to Shepherds to Labs.  I always have at least 6 cats in my home, and usually an array of small animals.  Each animal teaches me something new, something challenging, something that pushes me to learn and progress.
