Hello! My Name is Jess Keene and I am the owner of Goldstead K-9 training & Services LLC. Dogs have been a passion of mine from a very young age! From volunteering at the local shelter cleaning kennels and walking dogs, to showing dogs and assisting kennels, handling, grooming, and training; I strive to provide the absolute best care of every dog I am given the opportunity to work with. I began working with dogs over 17 years ago in various settings, over time I have gathered much experience in all breeds, mixes, and temperaments. Education is important to me, I have spent my entire life learning about dogs, what methodologies are best for teaching and communicating with our canine friends and family members. Through this pursuit for more knowledge I have found myself learning from many amazing trainers. I have attended hands on courses to learn the innerworkings of our dogs minds as well as gaining certifications. I continue to seek the most up to date information and science to the "whys" behind what we do in dog training, what is does, and the effect it has on dogs. I pride myself on being fluid in my training, I tailor my programs to suit the needs of the dog and owners I am working with. I am looking forward to helping you and your dog reach the goals you are striving for, rather that is as a service dog, working dog, or just a well behaved pet.
