RN, BS, ABCDT
Jackie is the head trainer and owner of Superstar Service Dogs, LLC. She is orriginally from Parlin, NJ. With a perceptible "Jersey accent," Jackie brings a unique perspective to service training as a registered nurse in various areas for over 20 years.
She has been training dogs on and off since the age of 12. She would ride her bike across town to spend time with the dogs in the shelter and learn about their behavior. Now, as a certified dog trainer and proud member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers, she never bores of watching each dog learn. She loves the moments when the dog surprises and impresses their owners with their intelligence and skill. She loves the watching them think, the personality each dog brings, and the silly things they do! As an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and service dog trainer, she appreciates how much help service dogs can provide for individuals with disabilities.
She owns 6 of her own dogs: Sparkles, a Border Collie, Regal a Rough Collie, and 3 English labs--Rowley, Rosie, Rey (aka "Hippo"), and another Rough Collie named Aspen. However, her greatest pride is her daughter, Emily who helps with the business too!
