Though obedience skills are important, there's so much more to raising a happy, socially savvy dog.  We focus on social family dogs, teaching basic life skills and social manners. Our goal: all dogs and humans have loads of fun learning.

What Can You Expect?

A Dog Training Class in Minneapolis that meets your 21st Century needs!

Dogs have made their way from the backyard to the bedroom in the 21st Century. Your dog will greet visitors coming to your home & go for walks among our crowded Minneapolis lakes and parks.  Many of your family dogs will even attend doggy daycare and our many local dog parks.

Just like human children, dogs don't come equipped with the social skills that make all of these activities enjoyable for family and dog. Social manners are a learned skill! We'll have loads of fun teaching your dog to be a Go Anywhere Dog™.  In the DogSense Minneapolis Dog Training Class you'll learn how to get your dog's focus on you among distractions as well as basic skills you'll use out and about in real life.


Basic Obedience skills build communication between you and your dog. We'll teach touch, sit, down, leave-it and stay. We'll have your dog understanding what you want and when you want it with both hand signals and verbal cues. Then we'll cover how you get these behaviors in real life out and about.


It's easy to get frustrated learning something new. We've flipped how people learn to raise well mannered dogs on it's head. It was long overdue! We know learning takes repetition for both people and dogs. That's why we created the DogSense eCourse. You'll never again feel left behind. You'll have access to all the learning anywhere, anytime. Even from your smart phone or tablet.

As your personal Puppy Expert & Dog Life Coach, Jody has put together an online dog training video eCourse, super fun puppy & dog training classes in Minneapolis, MN, Skype counseling & personal in-home dog behavior counseling.  We all know consistency is key. Jody wants to help guide you to live your best life with your puppy or dog every step of the way.  Providing you with consistency for all your puppy & dog behavior needs.

Our Off Leash Dog Obedience Training Classes are designed to be fun & surpass all your expectations in learning.  The DogSense eCourse videos are there to help you even when you're not in class, but at home in everyday life too.

DogSense: always 100% kind & loving methods

Positive & Reward Based Dog Training methods that really work!

I was greeted with warmth and a big welcome! They showed us a totally different way of teaching our pup with the Wonderful Result of a happy well socialized dog (with all people and other dogs).  They have a true spirit of love and care for your dog and take a personal interest in having you and your puppy succeed.

While they made my dogs extremely happy, they also kept me very happy because of their great customer service.  They always went above and beyond what I expected. I continue to be a huge fan of these talented ladies because of their true dedication to helping people enjoy the relationship with their dogs!

After I took Jody’s class, I learned a lot of skills to reinforce the good behaviors and be mindful of the fears that the dogs might have.  These methods have been extremely effective.  The behaviors stick!

Jody is so great!  She helped with my aggressive dog towards other dogs, providing positive dog training to help improve and change her behavior.  Jody makes dog owners feel comfortable and confident that they can improve their relationship with their dog.

I hardly know where to begin with my praise of Jody and DogSense. My husband and I got our first-ever puppy and had no clue! We tried 3 different trainers with mixed success, when thankfully we were referred to Jody. Her approach is just right for us, and more importantly for our dog. She is extremely knowledgeable, really understands dogs and their behavior, and is able to train both dog and owner in a fun, relaxed and effective way. We have had a few private lessons and then transitioned to several group, off-leash classes at Bone Adventure with Jody and Jeannie, including a Canine Good Citizen series. We've also participated in her awesome online "Fido Come!" course, where Jody provides a series of step-by-step online videos that teach a systematic way of achieving a reliable recall for your dog. For our group of participants, she established a private facebook group where we could share experiences, pictures, and pose questions for Jody. I never thought my dog, who generally would blow me off when I told her to come, would come bounding to me at the first request, but she does! (most of the time:) One more thing: a couple of times when I had a rather urgent issue, Jody spent time on the phone with me and/or was willing to private message on FB to help - beyond the call of duty, in my opinion, for a very busy trainer. I recommend Jody and DogSense Online without reservation.

We adopted our new dog from Safe Hands Rescue and they recommended Jody for training. Not knowing what to expect with off lease training we were sold after session one of Puppy Socialization. It was a controlled environment, fun for the puppies, relaxing for the pet parents and all the pups went home having learned a new behavior - Touch. We were so impressed with Jody's knowledge, training technique and ability to read each and every pup as well as their owners. We finished Puppy class and the next level class as well. We have the most well behaved 7 month old puppy every. It is all due to Jody, her technique and ability to teach pet parents.

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).

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.

Jody is great! You can tell that she genuinely cares about the work she is doing, and meeting your dog where they are. The best part is that there are videos and homework to do at home, the learning and help doesn't just end when you walk out of the class. Highly Recommend!
