Bio: 

Owner of Casanova Cane Corso and Loyal Learners Pet Services

Jessica has been heavily involved in the dog community since 2002, when she began to rehabilitate Molosser-type dogs with behavior issues. From there, she met her first Cane Corso and was instantly smitten, inspiring her to launch her kennel, Casanova Cane Corso, in 2005. Jessica, with her clan of Corsi, is an active participant in Conformation, Obedience, Weight Pulling, and Therapy work.

Originally a classroom teacher, Jessica loves to teach and build skills through positive relationships and associations. This craft is evident in her training style, where she is able to highlight a dog’s positive traits and use that to improve behavior and build new skills. In 2010, Jessica began formal training at BoomTowne Canine Campus, now named Finger Lakes Pet Resort in her quest to become a trainer herself. In 2013, she resigned as a classroom teacher to instruct 4-legged students and their owners fulltime, becoming a Trainer and the Puppy Coordinator where she had learned to train. After graduating from Karen Pryor Academy in 2015, Jessica opened Loyal Learners Pet Services.

Currently, Loyal Learners offers in-home pet training to meet your needs and the needs of your dog(s). Together, we will assess your situation, discuss your goals, and create a plan to make your goals a reality. Using force-free techniques, you, your family, and your pet will love the active engagement of training. Training is fun and it is a great way to build your relationship! From basic obedience to aggression and reactivity work, you will enjoy seeing your dog thrive. In addition to training, we offer boarding services for your pet.

Currently, Jessica lives with her 10-15 Cane Corsi, 3 Juliana pigs, and a Caique parrot. To date, she has had 14 Champion dogs, 4 Grand Champion dogs, more than 10 Canine Good Citizen dogs, and 6 Therapy dogs registered through Therapy Dog International. Jessica and her dogs dabble in Weight-pulling, Tracking, Scentwork, Rally, and Competitive Obedience.
