AS SEEN IN THE TIMES AND DAILY MAIL NEWSPAPERS.
My name is Jennifer Billot and I own and run Bone Ball Bark, a dog training business. I spent many years training Assistance Dogs at organizations in America, and have Masters degree in Canine Life Sciences.
I help you look at your dog in many different areas of their lives to help fix any behavioral problems, or simply to start your puppy off on the right foot! I can advise you on health and nutrition (Bone), how best to socialise and play with your dog (Ball), and work with you on any behavioral issues you may be having as well as general obedience (Bark).
Bone Ball Bark provides 1 on 1 sessions at a clients home. I provide training sessions suited for new puppies to help guide you through critical development stages as well as teaching house manners and basic commands, and also classes to teach an old dog new tricks (which is POSSIBLE!). We can work on anything from not pulling on a leash, coming when called, dog aggression, fearfulness, and specialised assistance skills.
I also provide virtual training consultations where we can talk through any issues via Skype/FaceTime/Google Hangouts, and also create custom training plans to follow for 4 weeks.
I cannot speak highly enough of Bone Ball Bark! Working with Jennifer was fantastic, she made sessions so much fun and there was a huge amount of learning involved for me and my dog, sometimes I think my brain was working harder than his! I loved how she taught me to adapt my training to my dog in a way that he can understand best, which meant he was able to make progress in leaps and bounds. I can’t believe how much more he listens to me off leash now. Jennifer also made me feel more confident in terms of training my dog which I think he has picked up on and is now listening to me more as a result. You can tell that Jennifer really cares about you and your dog which is lovely and it doesn’t stop when the sessions end either. My dog was in an accident after our sessions ended and Jennifer couldn’t have been more supportive! To anyone considering getting a dog trainer I would 12/10 recommended Jennifer as you and your dog will love it! More...
Thank you for such a lovely review Lilly! It was a pleasure working with you and Kevin, and you both make a fantastic team!
Really helpful session - Jennifer was superb and I would highly recommend her.
Working with Jennifer is great. She went above and beyond to help us with our exuberant lab puppy coming up with idea after idea to work through our issues. She held my hand through the bad times and celebrated the wins. You can tell she genuinely cares about your dog and wants to help. More...
Jennifer's positive training techniques resulted in my puppy learning how to behave appropriately in all environments and he gained many new advanced skills as well. She was patient and positive while guiding me on how to handle him, encouraging me as we progressed through training. More...
Thank you for the lovely review Sheryl! You and Wilson were a joy to work with:)
I am so thankful for Jennifer's advice and depth of knowledge concerning training. She manages to make training fun and to create clever solutions for your dog's specific issues. My dogs took to her right away and it was evident that they enjoyed her presence, making training a breeze. More...
I loved working with you, Staz and Kova! Hopefully see you all soon!
Jennifer was extremely calm, patient, encouraging and saw the humor in both my, and my dogs, antics and mistakes. It was always a joy to have her guiding me and she never made me feel uncomfortable.
We had a lot of fun in our training sessions and I can’t wait to check in again to see how you and Mags are doing:)
Jennifer from Bone Ball Bark is such a gem! Not only is she highly experienced but also has a graduate degree in her field of expertise. For me, this really sets her apart and puts her in another league when choosing a trainer. What she does WORKS and I appreciate that it’s backed by science/her studies. On top of that, she has such a kind heart for animals, keeps their well-being as top priority, and is so patient while teaching us humans (I think it’s usually us that need the most help, haha!). I feel lucky Jennifer has worked with my Labradors since she has so much experience working with this breed. Plus, they loved her and responded so well to the positive reinforcement methods she uses. Give your pups the gift of this talented trainer. You won’t regret it. More...
Thank you for such a lovely review Erin! I really loved our sessions with your labs and you were a great student, always taking on board what I advised and practicing between sessions:)
I have nothing but great things to say about Jennifer at Bone Ball Bark. She is so knowledgeable about all things dog; no question will go unanswered. Even from afar she was able to virtually personalize a training plan for me and my dog, Nova. She has stayed with me every step of the way and continues assist me with Nova's training. As a result, Nova has mastered several commands, behaves very well in the presence of people, and has gotten rid of her habit of jumping and nipping at people. I highly recommend her! She has loads of experience and it shows through her professionalism and her genuine love of dogs. More...
Thank you for the lovely review Deborah! I'm glad Nova is doing well, you have both worked so hard on her training plan:)
