What our raving clients have to say...
Jody is phenomenal! Her dedication to dogs and helping people train their fur babies is apparent. I admire the way she uses positive reinforcement to reward good behavior, which was important to me. I can't tell you how many times I have been shocked at how much my dog has improved with each class. Very satisfied and happy I chose this dog training program. Definitely a must! Would highly recommend!Lealoni Kuhn
I have known Jody for over 10 years and she has helped me with two of my fur babies. She is so knowledgeable of dog behavior and what is the best approach with each dog. You can tell she loves animals and has devoted her life and energy to making the world a better place for our four legged friends. I would be lost without her helping me train my little sassy Maltese Diva. I would recommend Jody to anyone who needs some help with their dog!!!Becky Klein
If there were ever a "dog whisperer," it would be Jody Karow. Her knowledge, experience, and intuition is beyond compare. We adopted a spitfire of a dachshund mix, from Safe Hands Animal Rescue. Between the naughty puppy behavior and limitless puppy energy, we were ready to lose our minds! That all changed when we started working with Jody. Jody doesn't merely understand dogs, she understands dog owners. She gave us the tools we needed to not only improve Frankie's behavior, but enrich our family as a whole. If you put in the time and follow the immense wisdom of Jody, I have no doubt that you will witness an unsurpassed night and day difference. Dogs do what works and you should to!Andrea Skolnick

I have had two private training sessions with Jody and I am now halfway through her basic obedience class at Bone Adventure in NE Mpls. We have been working on leash pulling/frustration and general manners for our 1 1/2 year old rescue pup. We attended another leash and obedience class but Jody's approach is much better. I love the off leash classroom and positive reinforcement on the leash. Our dog has made enormous strides with her leash walking and jumping up on humans (the two big issues we have faced).Jill Locke
Jody is compassionate and practical. She's terrific with both dogs and humans, gives very clear advice, has videos to explain and demonstrate, and she loves helping dogs and humans live together. I hope to continue through the Canine Good Citizen sequence.

DogSense online is a fantastic service I would recommend to ANY dog owner. Jody's in person dog training techniques are easy to understand and actually effective! The DogSense online library has been a fantastic resource for us to supplement and reinforce the techniques that we learn during group classes and private sessions. I like how the videos and commands a broken up in a way that doesn't feel overwhelming. I know that I can sit down and watch a video for 10 minutes, spend another few minutes with my dog and be done for the day if that's all the time I have. I have multiple dogs at home and they vary in age from puppy to senior, and we have made progress with all of them!Jaclyn Mennie
I cannot speak highly enough of Jody from Dogsense. She came into our life shortly after our Shichon puppy Pippa. She helped us navigate those adorable, but challenging early puppy days. Not only did Jody assist with potty training and teach Pippa not to chew on everything, she also helped with Pippa's socialization with other dogs by taking her on fun playdates. While I value Jody's training expertise and love for Pippa, I also really appreciate her non-judgmental way of working with families to make sure they have a great experience welcoming a dog into their lives. Without hesitation I would recommend her services (in fact I have recommended 5 or 6 friends)!Sara Ahluwalia
