A Day in the Life of JennaLee Gallicchio @AllStarPaws #AmReading #Animals #DogTraining

10:30 AM Posted by James Noel , , No comments
Being that I am a professional dog trainer and not a full time writer my day usually starts with two lumps of dog somewhere pressed against my body.

During the colder months Ryder, my 2 year old Australian Shepherd/Cattle Dog mix,  and Emmy, my 11 month old Alaskan Husky/ Greyhound mix,  think that I am their personal heating pad. During the warmer months I'm not sure what they think but they both like to stay close.

I am not complaining because honestly I love waking up with them every morning.

What time we get up varies from day to day but we all start with a great good morning greeting.  If you've never had a dog I can't fully explain with words what that feels like. If you have a dog, you know exactly what I am talking about.

After I take care of any necessities I bring them them out for a quick morning pee break.  Then it is time for breakfast for all of us.

I don't have a normal 9 to 5 job and my schedule varies from day to day but I always try to get some play /training time in with them.  They, well really all of us, thrive on it!

After I've taken care of them I will then head on over to my clients houses for a session which can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Some people I work with them and their dogs and others I work with just the dogs. Regardless it is always extremely gratifying work.

During this time it is usually when ideas for instructional books or videos will come into my head.  Sometimes the flow of them is overwhelming but it's always exciting to identify where I can continue to help people all over the world with their dogs.

And more importantly help the dogs with their humans!

After my appointments are finished I come back home to my adorable puppies and just spend some time with them.  They fill my life with laughter and joy - it's great!

One of the things that I love doing with them is Agility.  Ryder and I are becoming quite the team as we learn the sport.  Emmy and I are starting to learn how to work together.  Building a strong foundational relationship with them makes everything easier.

In the quiet time of my day sometimes I will write, (I have a book that has been in process for a while because it's been on hold a bit since Emmy came), I will blog for my training website www.allstarpaws.com, work on a clients website (I dabble in Web Design), or just chill out watching a good movie or reading a good book.

I am enjoying creating the life that I've never dreamed about because honestly I didn't know that this life was possible.  I just keep moving forward one step, sometimes tiny, baby steps and miraculous things keep happening.  Life is good!

Two books in one! This book combines "The Secret To Getting Your Dog To Do What You Want" and "Teach Your Dog To Pee and Poop Outside: House training Made Easy".

The Secret To Getting Your Dog To Do What You Want

With so much information available today, training your dog can become confusing. Trying to understand exactly what is meant by a "reward" or "reinforcement" and how to use it properly can be frustrating to say the least.

Once you understand what defines a reward, why they are important and how to use them effectively only then will you have the secret to getting your dog to do what you want.
  • Does your dog get crazy when it's time to go out?
  • Does getting their leash on take forever and a day?
  • What about their food?
  • Are they calm or crazy?
Jenna shares with you a simple training exercise that will forever change what it's like to go out or getting their dinner ready. By using their desire to get what they want you can get them to do what you want! Calm and relaxed is the name of the game!

Once you've learned this simple exercise make sure that you apply it to every routine or behavior you want to change.

Teach Your Dog To Pee and Poop Outside: Housetraining Made Easy
