Get to know us
Salisbury Dog Trainers
We wouldn’t ask you to entrust your dog into our care without knowing a little more about who we are and what we do.
Jenni is from Finland and has been in love with dogs since she was 5 years old.
Her family bred Fox Terriers for many years and her father was a Finnish customs and excise dog handler. By the age of 15, she had found a job as a sitter and walker for 3 Black Russian Terriers. This cemented her love for these world famous working dogs and two years later she became the owner of one.
Jenni quickly found herself working alongside one of Finland’s top breeder/trainers, Kirsti Pitkanen and spent many years being trained and mentored by Kirsti. This gave her the foundations for what became her life-long ambition to train dogs.
Jenni has been involved in lots of dog handling clubs including Black Russians, Rottweilers, Schnauzers to name a few.
Jenni went on to compete in the Finnish Crufts and won her category in 1999 for the Black Russian Terrier best Bitch.
She has done several qualifications to diploma level in obedience, behavior, and tracking and trained dogs to use air scenting in search and rescue operations. She has continually worked with hundreds of breeds and crossbreeds over the years in a voluntary capacity.
Now with more than 25 years of experience, Jenni offers a wealth of knowledge and skill, coupled with her passion and drive to help all dogs and their owners to have a beautiful hassle free relationship.
Using the more modern approach of positive reinforcement (rewarding for good behaviour) she gets great results.
Here at Salisbury Dog Trainers, our goal is to take the stress and hassle out of the relationship between the owner and the dog. Dogs are eager to please their owners and the owners care about their dogs – the issue is often communication.
We don’t just teach the dog – we also share our techniques with you to ensure that you can more easily communicate with your pet that will help to strengthen your relationship with one another.
With our training, your dog will be learning new behaviors and you will have a new and easy way to communicate. You won’t need to act like a professional dog trainer 24/7 to keep up the training.
