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 while approaching the training of your dog holistically through nutrition, obedience, play, socialization, and most of all, relationship. 

Jen’s 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 and make her the driving force behind one of Southern California’s premier dog training centers. As a fearless 6 year old, she began practicing horsemanship with informal dog training a natural part of each lesson making her the perfect neighborhood pet sitter and dog walker as she reached her teen years.

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

Her professional career began with formal training under internationally known and respected trainers and authors, George and Karen Duet. During these years a wealth of knowledge was shared; 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. In short order, what would have taken most trainers a lifetime to achieve, Jen became adept at quickly; working any dog in any situation, achieving only the best possible results.

Jen’s dedication goes well beyond basic obedience and problem solving. Although she excels in these areas, her passion is in helping our canine companions live longer, healthier lives.

She has spent many years studying nutrition and other modalities to help create true health and extend longevity. Believing in treating the dog as a whole, her holistic approach to dog training makes it possible for Jen to bond with her canine clients, bringing about profound improvements from the inside out. 

She has spent decades refining the tools necessary to forge the deepest relationship possible with our canine friends as she seeks harmony both as a result and within the process. Jen is able to layer over proper technique, body language, energy and motivation to quickly and easily achieve a happily compliant and balanced working relationship with her canine clients. 

Throughout her career Jen has helped thousands of dogs with a special focus on responsible pet ownership and helping families choose the right companion for their lifestyle. A lifetime of experience and raising puppies has taught her the value of properly selecting your new best friend to ensure you both have the same values, goals and hobbies. Joining forces with her before bringing home a new pup and allowing her to help select the perfect pup while spending the “big day” together is a winning combination. She understands the importance of taking your first steps with your new sidekick and has the knowledge to insure the right relationship with the greatest amount of success. 

Today, after nearly 25 years of working with dogs professionally, 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.

She is universally recognized as accomplished in many areas and is known for working with all breeds and ages of dogs, regardless of the issues while 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. 

With relationship being the key to a well-mannered companion, Jen begins with a integrated approach and considers it an honor to shepherd each new client along their journey. Each client whether past, present, or future is a welcome addition to the family.

Training Programs

Superhero Sidekick Group Class

8-week class  | $299
All ages and breeds welcome

 

Our highly successful training program is sure to help you achieve only the very best relationship and communication between you and your dog, all while training obedience in a social setting. Your dog will learn to walk nicely on a leash without pulling and sit automatically when you stop along with other core obedience commands like sit and down while staying in place. Does your dog come when called, always, no matter what? He will learn to understand this very valuable piece of communication and so much more! Our obedience classes have proven to take even the best canines to a whole new level, turn jokers into super dogs and if you've trained with us in a galaxy far far away, this is the perfect refresher course for you!

With nearly 25 years of professional experience, specializing in even the most difficult cases, we will share all of our tips and tricks. You will learn the secrets we use to work with, train with and bond with our very own companions. We know that achieving a truly happy, balanced and obedient dog is about much more than achieving a particular body position on command. So, unlike any group obedience class you will find elsewhere, we also include a 3-hour Orientation Seminar on Behavior Solutions & Problem Solving; the answers you need right away! We feel it is critical to understand why your dog behaves the way he does and why certain changes are necessary before we start to implement a behavior modification and obedience program.

At least 70% of your problems will be solved on day one! Armed with our professional level know-how, we have no doubt that you will train your pup to be the sidekick you’ve always dreamed of. We will be there to teach and guide you throughout the training program, as well as provide support (phone/email) for the lifetime of your pet. 

Super Bonus: We have no doubt that you can train your companion to be the sidekick you've always dreamed of and we want the world to know that you've turned your little joker into a Superhero Sidekick and a good citizen for your community.

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 the 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? Your superhero trainer is one of only a handful of skilled trainers in California that have mastered the intensive certification requirements in the ForceFree™ Method to off-leash reliability! 

Program includes the following:

  • Begins with a 2 hour Training Philosophy Orientation and Intro to off-leash training at our facility. 
  • Includes four 45 minutes sessions here at our training facility. 
  • Lifetime tech support; we are just an email away!
  • Includes top-of-the-line electric training collar as well as 5 weeks of lessons.

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 short weeks that could otherwise take months or years to achieve. 

In just a few weeks you can proudly pick up a dog that is happy, better balanced and trained to off-leash control! Not only is it possible, but we are happy to transfer the results to you which will be nearly automatic.

However, we schedule four follow-up sessions with you to guarantee success. With calm, clear, and consistent communication we can do the heavy lifting while you take a vacation from the canine chaos and prepare for your super dog!

Super Dog Maintenance

On-going classes | $15

This group class is not for beginners, but picks up right where you left off at the end of your obedience program and offers you and your canine companion a golden opportunity to maintain super status! Dogs are an incredibly social species and need continuous mental and physical stimulation around their own kind.

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, but is not limited to 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 is truly the “every dog” class. Dogs are naturally very social creatures and crave time to relax and just be a dog. If there is magic in dog training, this is where Jen will show you. As one of only 6 trainers worldwide certified to run these amazing socialization classes she will show you the true meaning of happy, calm, relaxed and balanced dogs as they lead by example and teach their socially challenged friends how to be just like them. 

Pack to Basics™ is a comprehensive approach to canine socialization, specifically geared towards dogs with known socialization issues. 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 socialization classes.

Pack to Basics is an advanced socialization process that focuses on the dogs that are typically excluded from doggie daycares and other socialization venues. Because of this fact, Pack to Basics offers us an opportunity to help dogs that otherwise might not be able to ever run with other dogs. Our Pack to Basics classes are revolutionary in their approach and in their results. By allowing dogs with difficulties getting along with other dogs to interact with the right kinds of dogs, they learn not merely to control their aggressive behavior, but to actually enjoy getting along with other dogs. The key to Pack to Basics is to use the dog's naturally strong social behavior to reduce stress and fear, build confidence and language skills, allowing for many common behavior problems to slip away! 

This class is absolutely perfect for puppy socialization starting at 8 weeks of age, for the happy and outgoing dog and the dog that may have some reactive or aggressive social issues. Your trainers are equipped with the right skill set and tools to keep you and your canine companions happy and successful. 

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!
