What customers, colleagues, co-workers & rescue dog foster parents say:
I brought our puppy to Jody and Jeannie when she was 6 months old. 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.

I met Jody and Jeannie in 2010 when they were running their dog daycare business in Eagan. This dynamic duo is very passionate about the pets that cross their paths. I felt so comfortable entrusting them with my furry family members because of their expert knowledge and true love of the animals. And while they made my pets extremely happy, they also kept me very happy because of their great customer service. They always went above and beyond what I expected.
More recently, I attended their classes where they practice force-free dog training. The majority of people attending were with shelter dogs that were in great need of training and socialization. I was in awe of how Jody and Jeannie communicated with us and the dogs. The positive reinforcement method that is taught in dog training class is excellent and the results were amazing. I look forward to attending future classes and will always recommend them to people I know.
I continue to be a huge fan of these talented ladies because of their true dedication to helping people enjoy the relationship with their pets!

Jody is so great! She helped me with my aggressive dog towards other dogs, providing positive dog training methods to help improve and change her behavior. She has an amazing wealth of knowledge and always has a strategy to help overcome difficult dog behavior issues. Jody makes dog owners feel comfortable and confident that they really can improve their relationship with their dog.

Jody and Jeannie are amazing! I’ve worked along side both these ladies and learned so much. They really have a passion for what they do and it shows! So professional, friendly and easy to follow along with them. They are my go to for anything dog related! 😉

The way that Jody trains dogs is perfectly aligned with my mindset – all things in a positive nature. I could see that what Jody was teaching my daycare staff was working. So it was just natural that yes, this is what we need to be doing and I’ve been modeling our dog training internally on what Jody has taught us.
Jody has studied a lot and she knows her stuff. You know she will figure out what will motivate a dog and help the owner understand. I think that makes a big difference. A lot of the time in the dog training world owners are just stymied and they need help too.

Working with Jody Karow, has been really amazing! It was an eye opening experience for coming in with lots of natural talent with dogs but not having any hardcore knowledge or skills. Jody would ask us to do something to modify a dog’s behavior and at first you think: “How is this ever going to work?” If you did exactly what she asked you to do, you would immediately see results. Giving her that trust, it was eye opening and I’ve learned so much from her.
Jody does not use fear tactics – no shouting, clapping, stomping or loud noises. She really motivates the dog to want to change their behavior with treats, toys or even just a very happy voice – whatever motivates that particular dog. A huge thing she helped us with is not getting frustrated, instead to step back and look at things from a different perspective and come up with a plan. She always trains with a plan. The dogs love her, she has such a positive attitude and patience with them. They are always going to learn. They will come straight to her when she enters the dog daycare playroom. Even if she doesn’t have treats and toys, they just really enjoy her. I have never seen a dog she could not help. She’s never afraid to take on a challenge. She wants to do what’s going to be best for each dog and help you to have the relationship that you always pictured in your head. She really takes those dreams become reality.

Jody Karow came in when we were growing our dog daycare and dog boarding business, developing from a few dogs to the five playrooms we have now.
Jody has become my personal mentor. Being a graduate of The Academy for Dog Trainers with Jean Donaldson brings enormous knowledge. This not only helps the dogs and the owners enjoy training, but it’s proven to be most effective to get the behaviors we would like to see more often. Jody does an impeccable job teaching others this. I have firsthand watched her modify a dog’s behavior and I have recommended her to many of our clients. They’ve come back better dogs and happier customers. The dogs enjoy daycare more. It is wonderful.

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!

Dog Training is meant to be fun for both you and dog!
I love Jody’s dog training classes. They are very positive and she makes the dog training classes fun. I think it’s the best way to train a dog, any dog. The dogs we get through the rescue have such a rough background, they each have their own issues and problems to overcome. My current foster dog is very fearful and would crumble if we used any other method that positive dog training. You would lose any other ground you’ve made. I don’t think there is any other way when it comes to our rescue dogs.

DogSense Online is set to revolutionize dog training. This simple to follow and fun program is the only one of it’s type out there and it fills a void in the training world. Trainer Jody Karow and her team have broken down the steps to help you and your dog to be successful and enjoy training together. As someone who believes training is something you do with a dog and not to a dog, I am particularly excited that the methods employed by DogSense are human and dog friendly! This program is designed to be easy to follow and fun. Most of us have dogs in our lives to increase the fun factor and the DogSense Online training program helps us do that in ways that many of us may not have expected!
