My name is JennaLee Gallicchio. I am (excitedly) a best selling international author and a professional dog trainer. An avid-animal lover I thrive on working with dogs and their people.
There is nothing more satisfying then leaving a previously struggling family with a bunch of smiles (both the two-legged and four legged kind) .
My inspiration for creating these dog training booklets, is to help people all over the world that I would never be able to help otherwise.
Taking the frustration out of training and putting the fun back is my ultimate goal. I want you to remember why it was that you brought that adorable four legged creature home in the first place!
I know there is nothing like having a deep, joyful connection with your dog. One that stems from mutual respect and love. I had that with my Mattie and am lucky to enjoy it with each new dog who comes into my life. Whether they are mine or one I am training. I want it for you too and I know you can have it!
My road to professional dog training unknowingly began when I adopted a puppy who I named Mattie. I had no idea how much he would change my life or frustrate me. Prior to bringing Mattie home I had the “Perfect” dog, Sydney and I naively believed all dogs were like him.
Mattie was a handful and I almost gave up on him. I was in over my head, beyond frustrated and I didn’t know what to do. I hired a trainer to come work with (save) me and began learning a new way to communicate with him.
It was during this time that Sydney passed away. Devastated by the loss but finding myself with one dog and no excuses, Mattie and I began a journey that would change both our lives.
Sadly I lost Mattie in March of 2013 but the journey we started continues to this day. I am very fortunate to have Ryder, my amazingly, brilliant gentle pup who chose to share his life with me. I am so happy he knew, and got to learn from, his big brother Mattie, just like I did.
When you read my books I hope you feel that they are coming from a place of love.
I truly want you to have the best possible relationship you can with your dog.
I want you to let your pup be who they are but know how teach them when and where to contain their natural enthusiasm and doggieness.
I can’t tell you enough how everything I’ve learned, and continue to learn, enriches my life with more love and joy than I ever thought possible. I hope that I am able to give that to you too and that these tiny pieces of me change your live.
Thank you for reading!
