Turning Your Dog Into A Super Dog

It’s all about Relationship and Results — Jen Freilich

At the end of your leash was founded to provide a supportive family-style atmosphere, to effectively train dogs holistically through nutrition, obedience, play, socialization, and most of all, relationship.  

Jen Freilich, IACP-CDT
Owner / Training Director


As the driving force behind one of Southern California’s premier dog training centers, Jen has been training dogs nearly her whole life.  Beginning as a fearless 6-year-old, Jen practiced horsemanship and, along with it, informal dog training.  Her natural ability to understand and connect with animals as well as her passion for developing rewarding relationships between her canine clients and their human companions has contributed to her success as a professional dog trainer.

Jen’s years of experience and knowledge cover a diverse range of skills carefully studied with only the most accomplished in the industry.

In 1998, Jen began formal training under respected trainers and authors, George and Karen Duet. During these years, Jen learned everything from animal husbandry, zoonosis and sanitation, kennel management, proper dog and leash handling, on and off leash obedience, advanced obedience, conformation, home and family protection, business security and detection work, as well as therapy and service dog training.

Although Jen excels in basic obedience and problem solving, her passion is in helping our canine companions live longer, healthier lives.  Studying nutrition and other modalities helps create true health and extend longevity. Her unique holistic approach to training treats the whole dog, delivering profound improvements from the inside out.

As a trainer known for working with all breeds and ages of dogs, Jen is recognized for helping clients understand the true nature within their companion. It is for these reasons that she continuously garners numerous referrals from top trainers across the country.

Today, after nearly 25 years, Jen is living her dream and has earned both national and international reputation as a trainer and problem solver capable of tackling even the most extreme cases.

With relationship being the key to a well-mannered companion, Jen considers it an honor to shepherd each new client along their journey. Each client is a welcome addition to the At the End of Your Leash family.

ForceFree™ Method of Off-Leash Training

5-week Training Program  | $495 Group Class  or $995 Private Training
All breeds, best for 6 months+

For the super dog that has already mastered their on-leash training skills and is looking to don their cape and fly off-leash!  The ForceFree™ Method is an intuitive system of training that makes sense to both people and dogs. Effective and gentle, the training method works WITH your dogs instincts, rather than against them.

We achieve off leash reliability, even with distractions, amazingly fast. Most dogs perceive the training as simple "pack cooperation" and play. Therefore, they quickly shed rebellious behavior and give you more focus than you imagined possible-doesn't that sound like more fun than correction after correction?

Program Details:

  • A 2-hour Training Philosophy Orientation and Intro to off-leash training (fee includes electric training collar).

  • Four 45 minutes sessions.

  • Lifetime online support.

Board & Train Programs

Our premiere On-and-Off Leash training program where your dog lives and trains with the pros! 

Enrolling your dog and ending the canine chaos is easy. Beginning with our Behavior Solutions Consultation, we evaluate your situation and begin sharing our proven problem-solving techniques as we develop a plan to transform your little joker or villain into a super dog! Together, we decide if a two or three-week stay would be the perfect solution for your canine companion and then we set an appointment for you to bring the future hero of this story to Superhero Headquarters!

While your future super dog is with us, we will work to fully integrate your companion into our daily routine. He will enjoy pack walks in the morning, pack play time and socialization, obedience sessions to teach important communication commands and the off-leash ForceFree™ Method remote collar training. In addition, your best buddy will sleep and eat inside as part of our pack and curl up on a bed in the living room to watch our favorite superhero movies during planned rest and relaxation time. Just as if your dog was our own, we work with their natural pack drives to achieve dramatic results.

In just a few weeks you will pick up a dog that is happy, better balanced and trained to off-leash control! Not only is it possible, the results transfer to you nearly automatically.

Following your dog’s stay, we schedule four follow-up sessions with you to guarantee success. With calm, clear, and consistent communication we do the heavy lifting while you prepare for your super dog!

Super Dog Maintenance

On-going classes | $15

This group class is for graduates of our training programs and picks up right where you left off.  After completing your obedience course, give your super dog mental and physical stimulation with other dogs to maintain super status!

This maintenance class is taught in a group format and allows us to help you perfect communication between you and your companion, tighten up on-leash, off-leash and advanced obedience skills, as well as further develop your knowledge of dog behavior as well as proper canine social skills.

Each class is just a little different to keep things interesting and may include practicing variations of heel, sit, down, come, and stay with distractions on leash, off leash prep and practice, advanced obedience skills like sit and down in motion, drop on recall and pivots, as well as Conditioned Relaxation™, Name & Explain techniques, tricks and so much more! 

Pack to Basics™

On-going classes | $10

This class allows every dog- from puppies (starting at 8 weeks of age), happy and outgoing dogs and even dogs that may have some reactive or aggressive social issues- time to relax and just be a dog. As one of only 6 trainers worldwide certified to run these socialization classes, Jen (and her happy, calm, relaxed and balanced dogs) will teach socially challenged canines how to be just like them. 

Pack to Basics™ is a revolutionary, comprehensive approach to canine socialization, specifically geared towards dogs with known socialization issues that might be excluded from other socialization venues. It includes everything from the initial evaluation to pre-training dogs before they can enter the social arena and preparing the questionable dogs to safely enter the classes.

By allowing dogs with difficulties getting along with other dogs to interact with the right kinds of dogs, they learn to control aggressive behavior and enjoy getting along with other dogs. The key to Pack to Basics is to use the dog's natural social behavior to reduce stress and fear, build confidence and language skills, allowing for many common behavior problems to slip away! 

Pack to Basics Socialization is available to anyone who has completed a training program with us. It’s our version of a dog park, but much, much safer!
