Our vet referred us to Jill Barratt when I mentioned that I was interested in finally addressing some important behavioral issues in my 7-year-old male German Shepherd, Finn. He’s great with anyone who comes into our house, but in general, he is anxious and we did not adequately socialize him with other dogs when he was a puppy, because the instructor in our puppy class segregated him from the other dogs when he acted timid, rather than helping him and us figure out coping skills. He got along great with our female GSD, but he barked and lunged at other dogs…

Jill has been fantastic in helping us with our dog. We had a trainer before Jill and she was nice, but we saw very quickly that Jill really understood the language of our dog. Jill also took a lot of time to understand our needs and concerns. What really made us prefer Jill was that she was so great at helping us understand what our dog was doing and the why. We are not experienced dog owners, but just after an hour of watching and listening to Jill we felt very confident and we saw immediate results in calming the aggression of our dog. Jill knows what she is doing and both our dog and our family love her for it. She has helped us tremendously.
We began training with Jill in conjunction with daycare for our two Welsh Corgis. Griffin now 8 yrs and Maggie now 4 yrs. They needed socialization and were very leash aggressive. We also trained privately with Jill in our home and in area parks. We worked with Jill from the autumn of 2013 until this spring and have seen great improvement. We have even been able to take part in the pack walks that Jill organizes for her clients, which are held in a park that have enormous distraction and stimulus. We continue to consult with Jill and continue to work on the socialization but their aggressiveness and general manners are much improved.
I began a training program with Jill for my British Black Labrador, Lucy, in January, 2015. Lucy had been a service dog for a double amputee, who subsequently died. Unfortunately, the family of her owner put Lucy into a local shelter. The anxiety and stress Lucy underwent with the death of her person and with her placement in a shelter took a tremendous toll on her mental and physical health. She was highly nervous, pacing and crying continuously, not able to be soothed or walked on a leash and was dangerously obese. Literally, within moments of Jill’s work with her, Lucy began to respond appropriately to her directions and to leash training….
When we had our second shots for our Golden Retriver, Solei, we inquired with the vet if he knew of a good trainer so we could start our pup out on the right track. He referred us to Jill from Salty Dog Behavior Training. We called Jill and set up our initial training session for Solei she spent an hour + with us going over our concerns of crate training, feeding, and moving forward with future training for Solei. Jill was very thorough on answering all of our questions and concerns we had. We will be engaging Jill for Solei’s future training needs. We are very pleased with her knowledge and overall caring for pets. Jill also takes Solei for walks when we do not get home in timely manner and we have used her kennel service also. We are very pleased with all her services and very happy we found someone to help us with our new puppy.
Jill at Salty Dog Training is a miracle worker! She has done a lot of training with my overly-hyper and aggressive dog and has changed the way my dog and I communicate and interact. Not only did she work with my dog to help her deal with her issues and learn how to be a good dog, but helped me understand how I can help my dog, too. It’s a work in progress and I couldn’t be more pleased! The best part about Jill is that you know she really cares and loves these dogs and wants them to be happy and healthy. She truly wants to help your dog become the best dog he can be.
