Jade grew up with German shepherds and poodles and knew she wanted a career involving dogs. Earning a B.S. from the University of New Haven in Criminal Justice; her goal was to become a State Trooper and eventually a K9 handler for the state police. An injury prevented her from that job and she found her love for training when rescuing her own dog, Tazzy. Jade and her husband Geoff currently share their lives with their toddler Letti, Hunter (Shiba Inu), Keira (German Shepherd) and Timber (Siberian Husky).
