Jayne Franklin is proud to serve the East Bay area as Trainer/Owner of Great Pups Dog Training.

Jayne started dog training in her 20’s. Beginning in 2016 she began her professional career working with the Canine Trade Group, founded by John Van Olden. John’s Leadership Theory of Dog Training encourages proper training protocols based on extensive research from global scientists studying canine psychology and physiology. Certified by the American Society of Veterinary Medicine to give continuing education classes for vets and vet techs. 

Jayne will introduce an approach to training different from the norm. Learning sit, down, and stay are all useful commands; however, if something more interesting happens, your dog will likely want to get involved with that and ignore you. The basis of dog training should be having your dog FOCUS on you over all the distractions surrounding them.

Jayne will help you build this focus with commitment-based training, working with you until your goals are met and helping you understand the challenges our dogs pose daily with their wills to be in charge. We will help your dog make the right decisions.  

Jayne also brings to her background training as a competitive amateur equestrian in the sport of Dressage. A very demanding relationship between horse and rider raises the bar to understanding the relationship between animals and humans. This applies to our dogs!

“My goal is for your Pup to be a well-adjusted member of your family that would be welcomed anywhere, including restaurants, stores, and public events, and be well-behaved, relaxed, and loved. Have fun and be safe!” Jayne Franklin
