The Love Dogs Team
Jamie's canine career started in high school when she began her dog walking business. This gave her the experience and confidence in handling dogs of all temperaments and sizes as well as developing close relationships with people within the community. In 2009, she enrolled in Anthony Jerone's School of Dog Training and attained her New York State Dog Training Certification. Jamie completed over 400 dog training hours under the supervision of renowned dog trainer Anthony Jerone and graduated with a perfect score on all quizes and final exam.
For over 8 years Jamie has been working with dogs and their owners (doing private training and group classes) all over Westchester County to help create a peaceful environment for the whole family. Her methods are wide verse and vary from dog to dog. Not every dog learns, thinks or feels the same so by sticking with one training method across the board you can actually do more harm then good. All of Jamie's different methods consist of positive reinforcement, boundaries and a deep understanding of canine behavior and psychology.
Now Jamie's main focus is working with rescue dogs, private in home training and helping to place shelter dogs with veterans with Pet for Vets. We are so happy to have dog trainer Jamie as manager and dog trainer at For the Love of Dogs!
Sade' joined For the LOVE of DOGS Rescue family as an administrative assistant in the late summer of 2015. She has been a great asset to our organization and to the animals as well. Sade' LOVES working with animals and is very caring, calming and nurturing. She makes everyone, two legged and four feel welcome, loved and happy!! Sade' has a very special ability to connect with animals.. her energy comes right from the heart!
Sade's favorite part of the day is interacting with adopters and helping them discover the magic of a great match which goes so far deeper than appearance, breed(s) & similarity to a dog they had.
In her free time Sade' loves to travel (although she is always working.. answering gmail & processing applications on the go!) Sade"enjoys horseback riding & she is great at capturing cell phone photos (very often of herself with a dog or 2.. or 3!!!) and enjoys sharing those special moments with everyone.
Sade' is lucky enough to have a beautiful family and she loves spending time with all of them.. even her "LOVE DOGS "family"! Sade' has two amazing Shih Tzu's that she adores named CoCo and Socrates.
Learning how to be fully present and communicate with animals, be they horses or dogs, has been one of the greatest joys of my life. To have the power to save animals from painful, and often dire circumstances is a gift in and of itself, but to then have the know how and ability to engender trust & affection through communication with those animals is a profoundly moving experience! The richness and depth of understanding and connection that is possible between humans & animals is limitless.. I am truly blessed.
