Head Dog Trainer NJ

Jayne O’Connor Head Dog Trainer at “The Spotted Dog” in Oakland, NJ

The Spotted Dog head trainer: Jayne O’Connor

Born in the County of Essex in the UK, Jayne moved to the NY/NJ area and has lived here for the past 30 years. As a certified trainer, Jayne has experienced many different behaviors and issues involving all breeds and all temperaments of dogs. She has worked closely with many rescue organizations helping foster, train and rehabilitate dogs.

Her training philosophy and style is based non-invasive and positive training techniques. Jayne said “I use a lot of different styles and training techniques to reach the goal of a happy well behaved dog, it’s not a one-size-fits- all type situation. Dogs want us to be the leader, and a pet owner should take pride in their dog’s good behavior.
