CITALI DOG TRAINING

Helping, Training, Loving Dogs.

Thoughtful dog training; leading the handler to meet the dog where he or she is and building on their natural traits, tendencies and desires to promote a bond between human and dog to accomplish simple and complex training goals. Using games to drive behavior learning is fun for everyone.

Moving This Summer to... Vermont!

PXL_20220420_204558207.PORTRAIT.jpg

This news is such a mixed bag of emotions for me.

We have finalized a decision to move to Vermont this summer. This has been a HARD decision. We are so excited to have a home in Williston, VT where we can host guests and share our love of the outdoors.

I will be leaving the BEST clients, volunteer organization, and friends a trainer could dream of, the birthplace of our kiddos, the origin of multiple businesses, and more than a decade of love, loss, laughter, and growth. I am able to look back at SO much progress with each and every client & the rescue of hundreds of dogs! From alert barking, kennel training, basic obedience, tricks skills, and more. I am so grateful for the opportunity to build my business with LBRG volunteers, adopters, and clients, and I will forever be grateful for the trust you put in me. 

I hope to offer services in Vermont once we are settled and have established a routine for our family. 

With love, gratitude, & joy,

Jackie Ward CPDT-KA, IAABC-ADT
