I’ve trusted Jax with my one year old Golden Retriever since she was only 6 months old. When I first met Jax I immediately felt at east and knew she would take great care of my baby girl. Meli has stayed with Jax multiple times and I alway know she’s having the time of her life and love how I stay connected via videos on Instagram. I think Jax is a dog whisperer and I wouldn’t trust my dog with anyone else! Thanks Jax for all your dedication and love of dogs and a trusted place to leave my fur-baby!!
I’ve left Isah with Jax a couple of times now and I can’t recommend her enough. My dog, being a German Short Hair Pointer, needs lots of physical exercise, mental stimulation and of course tons of affection lol. I can confidently say that Jax provides her with all of the above. She is super knowledgeable, caring and gives great detail of attention to keeping the property as relaxing and enjoyable for all the dogs as well. My favourite part of the day while I’m away is watching the videos she posts on her Instagram page of all the dogs running around with puppy grins on their faces. This gives me great peace of mind knowing she’s having the best time as well. It’s like a vacation for your dog while you’re away on vacation. If I could give a rating it would be five star for sure. Thanks Jax for taking such good care of my girl every time.
My 2 dogs had a great 6 nights at Wild Free with Jax! They are both a bit reactive to other dogs so they got their own space which put my mind at ease. She is very easy to contact and replies super fast! She was very willing to give as many updates as I asked for and was very open with communication. She even followed up for a few days after we picked the dogs up to make sure they were doing ok! I can tell Jax really cares about your dogs as much as her own. Would recommend to anyone and we will be back again! Thanks a lot Jax.
We were blessed to receive one of Jax’s ragdoll kittens from her last litter. He has been an incredible addition to our family. Navy is loving, full of cuddles, curious, so smart, eager to learn and of course absolutely beautiful. He adjusted so quickly to change and new experiences. Jax has been an amazing resource for us not just about raising a kitten but about nutrition and future health for Navy. We would highly recommend Jax if your considering having an addition to your family.
I can not thank Jax enough for looking after my fur babies! I have 2 rescue dogs that I had never left with anyone before. I was so hesitant to leave them until I found Jax. My dogs were so well taken care of and it took away all my stress about leaving them. She posted daily videos and I could see how happy they were. She is a true dog whisperer and this is the only place I will leave my dogs now!
This is the ONLY place I trust to leave my dog at. Jax is so incredibly accommodating! She met my dog and changed our plan slightly to better suite Phineas and he loves her! Any time I have a question, Jax answers without hesitation. I am excited to also use her training with my next puppy because I truly believe Jax is one of the few trainers who observes the dog and owner before offering a new regime. Big fan.
I rescued my 5 year old Stamford white terrier, Nikki, 2 years ago. I worked with several different trainers in Calgary in an attempt to manage and correct her aggressive/reactive behaviours. While Nikki is sweet as pie inside, she turns into Mrs. Hyde the second she sees another dog outside. Finally, frustrated, I took the advice of a friend and contacted WildFree Canine Services Inc. and signed up for the Canine Etiquette Course. Jax made adjustments to her schedule to fit Nikki in before the cold weather started (due to Nikki’s short coat). I noticed a huge difference upon Nikki’s return. Jax taught me: how to read the signals Nikki gives, take control in the house when she reacts at the patio window, how to walk Nikki using the follow technique, and how to correct her on our walks when we come across a dog. Most importantly, Jax taught me how to regain Nikki’s trust, respect and to get her to look to me for direction. Nikki and I still have a lot of work to do but in the 4 short months of our training, we have come such a long way! Jax has continued to be there for us, answering text messages and scheduling additional sessions at her farm to work on specific situations. I have also boarded Nikki at WildFree Canine Services Inc. and I know Nikki is getting the attention and structure that she needs while she is there! Thank you so much Jax, for you support, encouragement and guidance! I highly recommend WildFree Canine Services Inc. for all your dog's needs.
I am so glad that we found Jax and her amazing business, Wildfree Canine. We had our 3 dogs stay at the farm for 10 days over the holidays, it was all of their first time staying at a boarding kennel (even though i don't even classify it as that- the "Exploration Vacation"as Jax calls her boarding service is a much more fitting description!) I felt completely comfortable leaving all 3 dogs at the farm and had no worries while we were away as i knew they were in excellent hands and not cooped up in a small room for the majority of the day as they would inmost typical boarding kennels...in fact, it was the exact opposite as they were only kennelled to sleep and eat. The regular photos and videos of our pups running and playing with others were so much fun to see while were away and only further confirmed we had made the best choice on having them stay at Wildfree. Jax uses a holistic approach to animals nutrition and care which i also LOVE! We are looking forward to our dogs next "Exploration Vacation" where we will also have Jax assist us to make the switch to raw food from kibble so our pups can be as healthy & happy as can be...just in time to then book them in for the canine etiquette course! Jax, thank you so much for your incredible service and love for animals, we are so glad to have found your outstanding company! I would, and already do, recommend all services offered by Wildfree Canine to any and all fellow dog owners!
Lucy stayed with Jax for 9 days and from the daily videos posted it looked like she was having a blast!! I at the same time switched her from kibble to raw . Jax has great knowledge of vitamins and veggies that can be added as well.... Very happy with the outcome and I will be sending her back to play with the dogs and run around!!!!
I am pleased to say that we were extremely happy with wild free canine. It’s always nerve racking to leave your animals at an u familiar place, however Jax did an amazing job with our animals and we would definitely recommend her to anyone and will see her again in the future. I loved how she posted a video on a daily basis so that we could see our animals. Thanks again Jax!
I have been taking my weimaraner Rogue to Jax for exploration vacations for a while now and always feel relieved knowing that while shes there she isn't cooped up all day like a traditional kennel and gets to play and socialize with other dogs. I especially love the videos she posts daily so I can see her! I have most recently had the pleasure of the canine etiquette course. I wanted to do this not because I had a "bad" or aggressive dog but because I had stubborn, spoiled dog who liked to push boundaries, listen on her terms only and overall just improve her manners with walking on leash. I can't say enough how happy I am with the changes I am seeing in Rogue. I have never been able to walk her without a harness before and am so pleased with her progress! Walking behind me on a loose leash and looking to me for direction and guidance instead of trying to pull me in every direction. Not only did Jax do a fantastic job with training Rogue but she also tailored her follow exercise to suit what worked best for me while pushing a stroller and walking Rogue at the same time. Jax has also provided me with the right skills to ensure that I am the leader of my house and with the right energy I can have Rogue greet me in a calm state and respect my space. Rogue and I are both happier now and can't thank Jax enough for how she has helped us. It's easy to see that this isn't just a job to Jax, she genuinely cares about the dogs and loves what she does. I would highly recommend any of her services!
Jax came highly recommended to us by our neighbours. I was nervous about having to board our dogs since it was the first time we needed to, but the minute Jax picked up the phone I was at ease. She spent the time to ensure I felt comfortable and aware of what to expect when leaving our dogs with her. Jax is so knowledgable and passionate about dogs and how to care for them. She clearly makes a connection with each dog she looks after. The daily videos of our dogs playing in the exploration park took away any question we had about how they were doing, and we were able to enjoy our vacation without worrying about them. We will definitely be using Jax every time we have to go away, even if it's for a quick overnight trip. Thank you so much Jax for taking such wonderful care of Beaker and Goose, they did not want to leave and came home happy and exhausted!
My dogs are my absolute world and I'm very particular about the care they receive. I've been reluctant to leave them at kennels, especially as most come with so many limitations and restrictions. I couldn't be more happy to have found such a wonderful place as WildFree where my girls get to spend the majority of time playing outside, and I love that the 2 of them are able to share a large kennel for bed time so they don't need to be away from each other. I appreciate that you are allowed to bring your own dog food, as I find most places won't let you, but I'm even more thankful for Jax introducing me to a raw food diet and helping me transition them on to it, even with my one dog having previous food allergies. It's clear Jax understands each individual dog and is passionate about what she does..I know when I'm leaving my girls they'll truly have someone that cares about them. My dogs won't be staying anywhere else 🙂
We had Jax look after our dog Ginger while we went on summer vacation. Ginger came home slimmer, happy and healthy. We learned that we had been over feeding her and Jax's daily videos kept us up to date on how she was doing. I would highly recommend Jax and WildFree Canine. - Lisa (Ginger)
I was sitting here planning on booking my furkids in with you again soon and it dawned on me that I have not publicly acknowledged how much I love you and the services you offer! So forgive me, it is late but no less heartfelt! I came across Jax's website for the first time a couple of years ago when I was looking at options for my 'kids' while I was going out of town. I had never boarded then before and was quite anxious about the whole thing. My dogs are both fairly well behaved but each have their own challenges. My boy, for me anyhow, is a little hesitant when meeting new male dogs and my girl is a spitfire....busy girl! They both have great recall though so Jax assured me they would be just fine. I have to say that I was truly able to enjoy my vacation knowing that they were in great hands! The daily videos and constant communication with Jax made that possible. I came home to two very happy, tired and calm dogs! Their most recent visit at her new farm was no exception! I was going away for three weeks, which was very new for me, I had never left them that long. My only comfort was knowing where they would be! Kaia and Frankie were excited to see Jax and I was able to go away knowing they were going to be two very happy, exercised and well cared for pooches! Jax's energy is amazing and is able to instantly put mine and the dog's minds at ease, a true pack leader! We all love you and K&F look forward to their next visit!
Jax at Wildfree is awesome. My dog is older and has always been anxious . I have never been brave enough to place him at a kennel because of this. A friend referred me to Wildfree and I thought I would reach out and give it a try. From my first correspondence with Jax she put my mind at ease. After dropping off Jack I felt even better. Jax promised to keep him seperate from the young pups that made our dog nervous. While we were gone Jax was in contact with us sending pics and videos of our happy tail-wagging baby. We were able to enjoy our vacation because we knew he was so happy. When we picked Jack up I knew we would be back- normally he hightails it out of anywhere he is not comfortable (groomers etc) refusing to look back. This time, our dog greeted us excitedly and went back to Jax to give her some love. We all went home happy and content and I swear Jack missed Jax and her farm. Thanks so much Wildfree!
We took our slightly neurotic, greyhound x Penny to Jax for a 5 night staycation after a recommendation from our neighbours. We usually travel with Penny, and have not had the best experiences with a few of the typical "dog daycare" or boarding facilities around Calgary. We were finding Penny was overwhelmed with amount of dogs these facilities usually take at a time, and she tended to sit out on the sidelines (she is quite timid, and more dominant dogs intimidated her). Often, we picked her up and she would be full of energy when we brought her home, as she spent the majority of her time sleeping or hiding in the corner and not interacting with the other dogs. We felt this was not a great situation for Penny, and started to ask around for other recommendations. That's when we were referred to Jax at WildFree. I loved the idea of the staycation, and that the dogs were allowed to explore for 12 hours a day, not cooped up inside. I also liked how she took a small number of dogs at a time, and was very attentive to each dog's individual needs during their stay. I absolutely loved the videos Jax posts daily on social media, as it means ultimate peace of mind when you see your dog playing and interacting. When I picked Penny up, she was happy and exhausted - she slept for a full day straight! We cannot recommend WildFree enough, and Penny will definitely be back!! xoxo
I was looking for a more outdoor experience for our family dog, Pluto when I came across Jax and Wild Free Canine. We instantly fell in love with the concept that it was a fenced in, outdoor space outside of the city (Calgary). Jax instantly won me over by her knowledge and dedication to our first meeting. The video's that she uploads regularly to her Facebook and Instagram assure us that he is getting the best care and exercise around. She was even able to get us started on a raw food diet for Pluto as well. We had been wanting a diet change for a while, and Jax was able to give clear and helpful advise on how to begin. We HIGHLY recommend her services and space. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for giving our Fur-Baby the best vacation ever!
I discovered WildFree Canine Services (the farm) through Instagram. I checked out the packages available and had a great chat with Jax over the phone, and knew this was a great option for when I travel without my dog. My dog has been to the farm once, and from the video Jax posted, I know he was having a great time. This takes away so much of the pressure and stress of finding the right accommodations for my dog when I'm away--I know that he'll be in good hands with Jax, and that he'll be so distracted with all of the adventure and fun, that he won't be missing me at all! What dog wouldn't want a day of farm frolic?! Jax is supper accommodating herself, and makes the drop-off and pick-up as easy as possible. I've been recommending this place to my friends and colleagues for when they travel too. I'm really glad I stumbled across WildFree.
Molly stole our hearts the first time we laid eyes on her! She was a tiny little pup who was stranded on the side of the road with no where to go. All my husband and I could think of was "we need to save her!" We didn't stop to think that 1) we have never owned a dog before and 2) that we are the grown ups and need to understand the short term needs as well as the long term needs of this little pup. Diving into "parenthood" with both feet, Josh and I did ever everything in our power and with all of our love for this little furry baby. However, we couldn't understand, in such a short amount of time having her, why she bit like a little alligator, chewed our furniture as if it were one of her stuffed toys, and shied away from other people and dogs? In desperation, we found JAX and life changed for us completely! The key to a loving and obedient pup is ... to be consistent and have a solid routine put in place. With Jax's help and our determination, we now have a loving pup who listens!!
My 6 year old chocolate lab, Brax, just got back from a 10 day Exploration Vacation with Jax. I have never kenneled him before as someone was able to watch him at my house. I was very nervous about boarding him and I researched high and low to find the best place for him. Other kennels I have researched never gave me the best feeling until I landed on this website, Wildfree Canine Services. I was definitely happy with the level of knowledge, service Jax gave and how great she is with dogs. She knew I was nervous about leaving him and she would send me updates on how he was doing and loved that she posted videos of the dogs. In the videos, I could tell Brax was having a fun time and it was the best place for him. It made me feel at ease. It is definitely a home away from home and a real vacation for dogs. Brax was happy and exhausted when he came home. I recommended Jax to anyone wanting to kennel their dogs and I will be taking Brax back every time I leave.
I have two dogs, both of which I habe expwrienced issues with over the years maibly with manners and basic training; one of which has more reactivity to other dogs. I got to a point where I felt like I had tried every approach/training method. I felt at a loss and extremely frustrated. I blamed the dogs for their behaviour and failed to see my contribution. That was, until I met, and worked with Jax at Wild Free Canine Services Inc. for training sessions. Once I had the opportunity to do this, my eyes were really opened to all that I had been doing wrong before. It was like magic the first time Jax worked with my dogs- they behaved differently when she handled them within minutes into first session. That was when it became blatantly apparent that the dogs were not necessarily the problem, but it was in fact how I was interacting with them. It was obvious that they do pick up on our body signals, energy level and emotional state. My dogs had been receiving mixed signals from ymself and my husband and weren't aware of what was expected of them. They were also picking up on my anxiety. It is hard to correct these things within myself but I now realize that this is key in order to show my dogs that I am a strong leader who is in charge. Jax, however, is so balanced and calm. She works so well with the dogs to communicate to them what she wants them to do. I learned so many things from her, many of which I now implement into my daily routine with the dogs. Consistency is key, and is something we continue to work on in our household, amongst all members of the family. But overall, I have seen vast improvements in both dogs since I have worked with, and learned from, Jax. I am so impressed with her professionalism and ability to work with any type of dog. I am so thankful to her- her experience, her knowledge, her patience. She is truly gifted in what she does and it is obvious that she has a deep connection and understanding of dogs. She is able to easily uncover the reasons behind why they are displaying certain behaviors, or failing to respond to your attempts. She helps teach YOU, as an owner/pack leader, the steps to help correct said behaviours by changing your approach. Without her guidance I am sure I would still be struggling, instead of making forward progress. But, most importantly, I see my part in all of this and now am able to communicate with my dogs much better. When it comes to boarding, Jax is truly the ONLY person I trust with my dogs. I have true piece of mind when my dogs are at Wild Free, knowing they will not be allowed to behave badly and that the expectations of them are the same as I have at home. I have had numerous HORRIBLE experiences with boarding facilities/kennels in the past, where there was little structure or boundaries for the dogs. In these scenarios, my dogs were so bad! They would behave waaay worse than normal and even seem to adopt bad habits. They would have negative interactions with other dogs that were not handled well (in my opinion) by facility staff. Because of this, I would get them home and have to put more work into getting them back to status quo. I never have to worry about these things when they are at Wild Free. I know when I pick up my dogs they will be be happy and healthy (mentally and physically) after their exploration vacation. They get ample excersize and positive interactions with other dogs. Jax takes the time to place dogs together who she knows will balance out, energy level and size wise. She puts a lot of effort into making their stay enjoyable and rewarding. She has a way with dogs that is very natural and based on mutual understanding and respect. I only hope to emulate her more and eventually get to a place where I can be as confident and skilled with my dogs. Thanks Jax (Wild Free Canine Services Inc.) for your guidance and support. I truly value you as a resource and loving place for my canine family members.
We have had our rescue dog Sasha for about two years and, during that time, we saw her becoming increasingly more reactive to dogs on leash and increasingly more anxious in the home. We have tried many many different methods of training with various instructors both private and in classes all over Calgary and never saw a drastic change in Sasha's behaviour... until we met Jax! Jax helped us focus on how our actions and feelings was affecting Sasha and how, instead of training our dog, we needed to learn to communicate with her. Jax made it clear that this wouldn't be an easy task (it wasn't) and would require a lot of work and commitment from us as owners (it does!) With that being said, in just over a month we have seen huge changes in Sasha. Her on leash reactivity has improved, she is more comfortable and confident in our home, she goes into her kennel on command and stays off the furniture. When I think back on the progress we have made, I actually can't believe it. Some of Sasha's behaviours are a work in progress but I completely feel that Jax is committed to being a part of Sasha's life for the long haul - I basically think of her as part of our family (which sounds crazy but true). She is amazing with animals and her commitment to her clients and their pets is second to none. I feel so lucky to have found her and would suggest Wild Free Canine to anyone.
We contacted Jax as we were experiencing major dog fighting between the girls. They are sisters (litter mates), and we have been told on numerous occasions they will not get along. They never had a problem until the beginning of summer and a change of events in the home. We also discovered Cagney has hip dysplasia. The hips have now been looked after temporarily, and the Canine Etiquette Course attended. The change in our girls is amazing. Since returning home, we have seen no sign of aggression by Cagney. In addition, we have had problems training the girls on the leash, as we live on an acreage. To date their improvement is 100%. Due to their strength, Trace was no longer able to walk both girls, but that is slowly changing. We have walked them together on several occasions, just one of us holding them. Lacey is a natural, and only wants to please, and as a result we feel that she is helping to show Cagney what she should be doing. Cagney is very headstrong and stubborn, as well as nervous and anxious, but slowly accepting the change in family life. We felt we were going to have no alternative but to split our girls and us up, but since meeting Jax, life has turned around for us. We have two girls improving daily, and family life returning to somewhere near normal again. Things can only continue to improve as the girls learn new rules. Thanks Jax for your help, which we know is on a continuous basis.
After following WildFree for almost a year I decided to enroll my dog Charlie in the Canine Etiquette Course. The only thing I regret is waiting so long to do it. When my dog came home from the WildFree farm I noticed huge changes immediately. My once anxious, hyper, non-responsive dog is now calm, relaxed, and attentive. Jax is the real deal! The transformation I witnessed in Charlie in so little time is nothing short of amazing. I've just recently begun the human training sessions and so far it's going great. The course is tough but it's also very rewarding. I'm excited to continue learning and growing a stronger relationship with my dog. Thanks Jax!
I was to my breaking point with my dog Copper when I saw a post about Wildfree and I have to say it has changed our lives for the better! Within a few months after adopting him his dog aggression really began to root and I understood completely why he was in the shelter for so long. Whenever we walked I was instantly frustrated with him dragging me around and trying to attack any dog he could see. After seeing the positive feedback for Jax and the canine etiquette course I knew we needed to enrol asap! Now it's been a complete 180, we can walk without constantly avoiding other dogs and I'm still amazed how patiently he walks behind me! Jax showed me what he needed from me to keep him calm and focused during our walks. Every day we improve a little more then the last! Our walks a joy now instead of something to dread. Jax truly wants you to succeed and gives it her all to help you no matter what! I am so thankful we found her and Copper completely adores her!
I just picked up my 1.5 year old lab "kona" from a 16 day exploration vacation. It was his first trip away from his family, mostly because I have always been very skeptical about kennels or people claiming they are good with dogs. This is a real vacation. A home away from home. Jax is an animal lover and such a great human! I could instantly tell upon dropping him off and meeting her that kona was in good hands. She has a passion for what she does and I can't recommend this place enough. The facility is awesome and it's a true peice of paradise out there. Her pick up and drop off service is more then reasonable!! Kona came home exhausted and looked so happy and healthy. My only concern in writing this is that she will get to popular about and she will be booked up for our future holidays! Thanks again
I just picked up my 1.5 year old lab "kona" from a 16 day exploration vacation. It was his first trip away from his family, mostly because I have always been very skeptical about kennels or people claiming they are good with dogs. This is a real vacation. A home away from home. I don't know how Jax did it, but we sent our dogs away to the 4-6 week training service and they came back with a confidence I never thought possible. Our house feels peaceful. You can't put a price on that. It's so relieving to come home to a calm home after a long day. We are just so elated at the progress and look forward to further progress because Jax is a resource that is available at anytime for whatever questions should arise. She doesn't take your money and send you on your way. I get the feeling she genuinely cares about us and our pups.
Luna , Luna, Luna..... she is a special dog. A rescued dog from the reserve she had no manners, terrible with other dogs , actually vicious , but loves loves humans. And then I found Jax. This positive human, with strong guidance would teach our dog to have proper manners and teach her that not all dogs want to hurt her. We are always shocked at how well she does , when she goes on her mini get aways at Jax! We thank you so very much for all the guidance and your love for Luna.
We have two rescue pups, Helen and Troy. Despite countless hours working with them and the huge strides we’ve made, we needed help. Helen’s insecurities created a growing laundry list of behaviour issues. Her attachment to her brother, Troy was becoming a hindrance to her progress. We contacted Jax for help with Helen. When Jax met the pups, she shed light on behaviours both pups needed help with. Helen and Troy attended the Canine Etiquette Course in the summer of 2016. Jax did an amazing job with them. We noticed a huge improvement from the moment they got home. We continue to work with them a great deal – it’s hard work (Jax did warn us!) – but it’s incredibly rewarding and is paying off massively. Jax has given us the skills and confidence to be true leaders for Helen & Troy to follow. We’re thrilled to have the peace back in our home.
I adopted a rescued (suspected) Puggle in Dec 2015. Scout quickly earned the nickname Little Mule due to her stubborn nature. She was also extemely reactive to anything that moved. Bikes and buses were especially evil. After following Wildfree on facebook for a few months I felt that Jax would be the best person to train Scout. I was not disappointed. Although Scout earned an extra week at the ranch, she came home a more respectful dog that hung on to every movement Jax made. Not something I ever expected from Scout. Today, after only being home for two weeks, Scout passed by a mouthy Westie without blinking an eye. A completely different dog is at the end of my leash now. I know I still have a lot to learn but with Jax's patient guidance I have no doubt that I will be the confident and patient leader Scout needs to be the relaxed and calm dog that she is with Jax.
I have a shiba inu puppy and he was extremely dominant and had some bad manners. Wild Free puppy obedience sessions have made such a huge difference for myself and my pup. I have learned how to create a calm environment to ensure my pup is not excited when I come into the house. I have also learned how to properly walk my pup with him following behind me and shadowing everything I do (stop, back up) Jax at Wild free canines was nothing but supportive, helpful, and caring. She went above and beyond to help my stubborn shiba become a wonderful dog. I also have had my puppy stay over night at the ranch and he loved every minute of it! 6 hours of yard time and an hour adventure every day is incredible. I knew Tucker was being treated properly and had discipline as well as affection and exercise. Nothing worse than having to worry about your fur baby while you are on vacation! Well that never happened when I dropped Tucker off at Wild free for the weekend. He couldn't wait to get out of the truck :). I can't thank Wild free canines enough for all the hard work and dedication that was put in to my puppy's training sessions. Very highly recommended !!!
Jaclyn took Floyd into her home for 5 days last month while I was moving. Floyd is a French Bulldog who, while adorable, are notoriously stubborn. Jaclyn had an immediate connection while I was there and Floyd's been a bit of an angel since he's been home. I especially enjoyed the candid photo's she'd send of him enjoying himself during his stay. I would recommend Jaclyn's personal services and expertise to anyone.
Our family used Jaclyn for our Scooter, he is very reactive around dogs and totally uncontrollable when he is surprised by one. We called Jaclyn and she came to our house and watched his behaviour. Gave us a list of things to do and things not to do. He has gotten 75% better and we are still working on everything with confidence. He is our baby and we thank Jaclyn very much for the excellent guidance she has given us. Definitely recommend this wonderful lady!
Jaclyn did a wonderful job with our dog that stayed with her for a month for the canine etiquette. Prior to his stay he was people and dog aggressive, didn’t know how to walk on a leash, and didn’t follow any instructions. Jaclyn transformed him into almost a brand new dog. He now follows along on a leash without pulling at all. He doesn’t try to attack guests and will usually ignore them. The best part about Jaclyn is that she teaches you how deal with the problems in your home so you are able to apply them even when she is not around. She is also available for any questions or concerns you might have after the program and helps you out with your transition every step of the way. We are working with him on the dog aggression during walks with Jaclyn’s instructions but he has improved a lot since his time with her. I would definitely recommend Jaclyn to anyone
We had Jaclyn come over for three sessions to see our German shepherd 9 months old female. Before we met with Jaclyn, our pup was very difficult to walk on the leash, she had food aggression, and was possessive over Her bone. Jaclyn taught us how to act like the pack leader with confidence, and claim all spaces in the house. Cera now walks calmly on the leash looking up at us for direction. I was completely surprised to see such a dramatic difference. She has made signifigant improvements on her food and bone aggression. We continue to use the skills Jaclyn gave us. What sets this program apart from others is that Jaclyn comes to your house and sees your dog in their day to day environment. She teaches US first before even addressing the dog. Her approach is all common sense! I would highly recommend this service.
I have been taking my baby boy Dallas to WildFree for a little while now and I love it! Jaclyn is so good with him! I have taken him to a few other boarders and WildFree is by far my favourite and the one I feel most comfortable leaving dallas at. I love the constant photo and video updates on the Facebook page as well. WildFree is very accommodation to my work schedule and I couldn't ask for a better place to send my baby boy, I would reccomend her to anyone! Thanks again jaclyn!
I have been very happy and successful with the training that I have received from Jaclyn. We contacted Jaclyn for help with our two border collies for what she labelled behavioral issues. We have learned proper leash walking, alpha roles and bark control. We had issues with one of the dogs pulling while on leash and one who liked to lunge at other dogs and yelp and whine. They have both done very well with their training and so have us humans. Jaclyn has given us the necessary training to be able to help the dogs and us learn to be polite while meeting other dogs and has taught us humans how to reclaim our space. The dogs are better than they were and so are the humans !!! We are very happy with the outcome of our training sessions with Jaclyn and will effeminately continue to use her for all our needs. The boys have gone to her for boarding while we were away and they came back very well behaved!!!
We had the pleasure of working with Jaclyn over the last 2 months. Our 170 pound English Bullmastiff had become more and more aggressive towards dogs and humans and although we had worked with 3 trainers in the past we just couldn't get the situation under control. Jax listened so that she fully understood the problems we were dealing with and then put a plan into place. It was hard work but with two walks daily and over the course of 3 training sessions with Jaclyn, we saw great results! We went from being afraid to walk him or opening the door to strangers etc. to enjoying having our dog again. I'm looking forward to going for walks with Forest now and am very pleased with the progress we have made in such a short amount of time. We couldn't have done it without her. Highly recommend wildfreedogbehavior!
My husband and I were looking for someone who had a passion for dogs to look after our puppies when we went out of town. I did some research and found jax. Mavis and Theodore have been with jax 3 times now and are excited once we pull up to her place. They are well exercised and exceptionally well cared for. When they come home they are exhausted which is always a bonus. I would definitely recommend jax and her dog services. It's hard to find someone you can trust with your puppies but we have found this with jax
