I found Jessica Jacobson through Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue and she was amazing at training us and teaching Yoffi that life can be safe, happy and FUN. Jessica is gentle, patient, incredibly gifted and intelligent in her approach. Within just 2 or 3 sessions we saw major improvement in Yoffi’s confidence and comfort level both in the house and on walks. Yoffi has very few quirks at this point – none of them rise to the level of “behavior issues” and I credit Jessica with helping her blossom into a great dog who has overcome a very tough start in life.
I would recommend Jessica to anyone with a puppy who needs to learn to be a happy and well behaved member of your family, or to anyone with a more mature dog who needs help with any behavior issues or fears. She’s a true dog therapist!"

with other dogs. It was becoming unbearable to go on walks with him. I
could tell he was nervous and anxious but didn't know how to help him get
over his issues on the sidewalk. He was like this even before the
amputation (caused by a mast cell tumor in his left front leg).
Dr Sane, our amazing vet, recommended Jessica Jacobson to us to help correct
Moishe's issues. Jessica came over and evaluated Moishe's behavior
thoroughly. We went for a walk and she taught me how to distract him and
use positive reinforcement instead of scolding him for his bad behavior.
Training certainly is a continuous process but with practice and the right
tools (his favorite treats and squeeky toys), he rarely has freak outs
anymore. He's also been learning tricks like rolling over and jumping up.
I think he likes being challenged. He's a smart little guy.
I would definitely recommend Jessica to other frustrated dog owners. You
have to understand what the behavior actually is in order to correct it and
Jessica helped me do that. Thanks very much! <3, jill + moishe"

“I worked with Jessica for four months with my two puppies, Lila and Sam. My puppies were already 12 and 18 weeks old when I got them and had had no prior training at all. Starting the second day they were in my home, Jessica successfully coached me through all stages of training, including housebreaking, biting, barking, sleeping through the night, and chewing. Her positive reinforcement format was exceedingly effective and worked equally well for two puppies with very different dispositions.
Jessica’s ability to step in a maneuver the puppies into new behaviors after just three attempts was both inspiring and intimidating. At times, I was wondering if perhaps I just didn’t have the “knack” for it that she did. But she helped me to undo many of my bad habits and create new ones in their places. She was also very clear about the consequences of both my actions, as well as my inactions, when training my pets. All this being said, in the end, I probably received more behavior modification training than the dogs did!
Aside from her special talent with interacting with canines, Jessica was also the consummate professional who consistently went above and beyond her responsibilities. The biggest value-added contribution that Jessica made was that she was always “on call” and available by phone or text with quick responses to my urgent requests for guidance about any situation that I didn’t know how to handle."
