Working with Jay was a great experience
Working with Jay was a great experience. Training involves more than just the dog, the owner is an integral part and Jay works well with both. Our almost two year old Golden Retriever, Rusty, is a big boy and can be very pushy. Each week after working with Jay we could see improvement in his behavio [...]
Having a very needy, untrusting dog, had me at my wits end. I wanted to enjoy walks instead of being walked, I wanted to be proud of my dog instead of embarrassed because his barking made me feel as if I was a "bad mom", I wanted my Fluffy to just enjoy laying/sitting at my side when I had to work f [...]
Jay is nothing short of AMAZING!
Jay is nothing short of AMAZING! We made all the mistakes possible in getting our first puppy - got two males at the same time, a breed that was way more than we could handle and very different parenting approaches from the two of us. We didn't know how to get on the right path with our puppies. [...]
I have loved working with Jay. My puppy is about to finish her last session, and because of her training she is a delight to be around. I cannot believe all she has learned as a very young puppy and am confident that, as long as I continue to reinforce her training, she will remember the training [...]
Jay has done an amazing job with Jax, our 1 1/2 year old French Bulldog, in getting us to better understanding him and giving him the manners he needs. Jay was very easy to work with and taught us things that we can use in helping Jax. Jax enjoyed working with Jay, as well as us, we all looked fo [...]
We can't say enough good things
We can't say enough good things about Jay and Dog Ventures! We first hired Jay to help us with our new rescue puppy. We started training when she was approximately 3 months old. Jay was awesome and helped train us so we could train her! Jay comes to your house and works with the dogs in their enviro [...]
Jay is great at what he does! We had no idea where to begin back in January when we adopted our rescue pup. We never considered ourselves dog people and wanted to make sure we did things right. I would text or call Jay all the time and he was more than happy to help me with whatever it was. He total [...]
Jay is phenomenal. Extremely patient with Sake who is a Shiba Inu but also with us as owners. Thanks Jay!!

Highly Recommend Him
We have been having Jay work with us and our two female golden retrievers now for about three months or so. One is four and the other one 11. They are both very sweet dogs, as goldens are. However, the young one has some behavioral quirk which causes her to attack the older dog at certain times (typ [...]
Jay has been absolutely amazing with our small dog Ralf and I would always recommend him! He has brought Ralf so far in just four short sessions. We will be using him with all of our future help we might need!
Jay Gives Hope!!
What can I say about Jay, he is amazing. We got our little, mixed breed dog Taz when he was 5 months old. Little did we know he wasn't socialized as a puppy which is crucial for proper socialization with people & other dogs. We noticed within a year of having him he started to become fearful o [...]
Jay came and changed my whole relationship with my dog.
Jay is really aware of what type of dog (and owner) he is working with and what their strengths and weaknesses are. The training we have done and continue to do have made my dog and I both more in tune with each other, making it a more pleasant dog owning experience. I had a troubled Sheltie who enj [...]
Jay has been working on training Luke
Jay has been working on training Luke, my 6 month old smooth collie for the past six weeks. Luke loved every minute of his training! Jay has more patience than anyone I have ever met and his love for dogs is unbelievable. His last lesson included teaching Luke not to panic when vacuuming. He pat [...]
Jay makes a huge difference!
I can't recommend Jay highly enough. His work with Gonzo, our now 1 1/2 year old Chesapeake Retriever, but more importantly, with me, has made such an enormous difference in Gonzo's behavior and our whole household is so improved because of it. Jay's insights were so valuable --- he really understan [...]
Jay is so caring, knowledgeable, professional and patient.
We are taking care of my daughter’s dog for a while and knew that being undisciplined for 3 years was going to be a problem and she needed help. Our neighbors referred us to Jay and I’m so glad they did! Jay is so caring, knowledgeable, professional and patient. Daphne was a bit timid and [...]
We are now having the most incredible walks together!
Jay is so much more than just a dog “trainer.” While he has shown me the basic principles of training my dog, Emma, he has also shown me something much more powerful, and that is how to change my fundamental relationship with her. I want her to be a balanced and happy dog, and Jay has shown me h [...]
She is already a happier and more confident dog than she was a month ago.
Thank you so much for your efforts with Sera! I really appreciate all that you have done and suggestions for her future success, and for checking in on her. She is already a happier and more confident dog than she was a month ago. I’ll definitely be recommending your expertise to others!
Thanks Jay, you are truly wonderful!
I was given a Pit Bull Terrier and was scared because of things I’ve heard about pits. He seemed to be a loveable, happy dog. But, he was exhibiting some aggressive behaviors such as barking, growling and charging at guests in a threatening manner, shredding (everything), and was supremely protect [...]
I highly recommend Jay and his methods
Jay Hemmingsen is an absolute gem. He is a leader in the world of dog behaviorists because he truly cares, not only about each and every animal he works with, but about their people as well. Jay empowers his clients (furry or otherwise) through the art of listening–his ability to pay attention com [...]
Your gentle touch with her and your kind words for me has made all the difference in the world.
Dear Jay, I just have to tell you there is no way I can thank you enough for what you have done for me and my daughter, (4-year old boxer – Emily). She was the most social dog ever until her attack, and then she couldn’t even be near other dogs. It was such a difficult time, and we had several u [...]
Jay has helped me compensate for my handicap by training my dog so I can handle her.
Jay Hemmingsen is an excellent dog behaviorist and trainer. I have found him to be reliable, responsible, considerate, and conscientious. He is very knowledgeable regarding dogs needs and is willing to do what is necessary to help owners see and meet these needs so they can get the most benefit from [...]
We had a puppy with an attitude now we can’t imagine our home without her.
Our puppy behaved in a way that felt like a constant battle of wills at eating time, on a leash, even as we simply moved throughout our home. Jay taught us about how a dog thinks and communicates. He taught us how to convey that the people are in charge and how to teach her acceptable behavior by ch [...]
Thanks so much for your help with Bella
Before my owners met Jay, they were not very happy with me. Some of my bad habits included getting out of the yard and running away, jumping on people and chewing on things I shouldn’t be chewing on. Jay came over to my house and helped me and my owners learn how to work together and form a new an [...]
most of the issues were with me, not my dog
I think Jay is fabulous. He gently let me know most of the issues are with me, not my dog! His insight is invaluable in my many areas of my life including parenting my kids! If you are thinking of paying for dog obedience training to overcome some dog issues, I suggest you invest in behavior trainin [...]
Australian Shepard with aggression toward human strangers
Jay worked with my dog Rudy, an Australian Shepard with aggression toward human strangers, and also even with some people he knew. He would always act overly protective of me, and anytime I went to hug someone goodbye he would lunge at their ankles. I saw incredible results after our first session w [...]
I needed our dog Kiowa to get tested for his Canine Good Citizen certificate. Jay worked with us to fine tune some behaviors in order to be tested. Jay was patient and was very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone!!!!
Where to begin, Jay has brought obedience and order to my household. He has the patience of a saint and knows his breeds of dogs. Jay goes the extra mile to work with each individual dog as well as in a group. He spent the time needed to focus on what each dog needed to be more successful individua [...]
