I can’t speak highly enough about this program. We have two little dogs with lots of behavioral issues. They are three years old and this is the third training program we’ve had them in. They did a puppy program at a big box pet store and a “two week check them in and we fix all their problems” at a well known local company. Neither of these programs “fixed their problems”. What is unique about Boise Dog Sports is that Janee was able to come to our home and see our space and see our dogs within our space. She is amazing at sorting out the “doggie psychology” behind their issues and then working to specialize training based on the individual dogs. We literally saw improvements after one session with her. We were seriously considering re-homing our dogs and reached out to her as a last resort. I’m happy to say we aren’t considering that anymore and I have hope someday my kids will even be able to take the pups with them to college! Dreams do come true!

We began working with Janee when we first moved to Boise. My partner and I were moving in together, he has one dog and I have two dogs, one of which is very dog aggressive. This made a very stressful situation as we tried to get everyone acclimated in our new home. Over the course of 6 sessions, Janee helped us work through this– our dogs are now able to coexist peacefully, and even seem happy to be with each other. Thank you Janee for your help and guidance!

Janee was great to work with. Our dog has come a long way thanks to her knowledge and expertise. Would highly recommend Boise Dog Sports.

Janee is everything you would want in someone to help you train or address issues with your dog. She’s very knowledgeable, very personably and communicates extremely well. Our dog, Rosie, a very bright rescue dog with an endearing personality, was experiencing severe anxiety brought on by our recent relocation to Eagle from the Cleveland, OH area, which was her home for the previous six years of her life. After initially seeming to adapt well to her new surroundings, she suddenly started urgently insisting on being in bed with us at night. In consultation with our vet, the Eagle Animal Clinic, with which Janee is also affiliated, a terrifically effective training regimen plus some meds from which Rosie is currently being weaned, worked the wonders we didn’t think would be possible when the problem arose. A very happy ending.

We recently completed the Reactive Dog training classes with Janee. First off, I was happy to see a class like this offered here in Boise. Most options before were just 1:1 sessions with trainers and it was helpful to have a structured class where you could work with a trainer along with other dogs & their humans who face similar challenges. The class was fun, engaging, and I learned a lot of great tricks and ways to work with my dog. The dogs in the class were varying degrees of reactivity and Janee did a wonderful job assessing each dog & their human and had each of us work on areas specific to our needs. While my dog will never be a social butterfly with other dogs (and that’s ok), Janee taught me ways to help make both of us more comfortable in various situations.

Janee also came to our house for a private session which was beneficial as well. She shared more tips and gave me great suggestions for how to work with our dog that likes to run and bark along the fence especially when other dogs are out walking. We are working on it, and it will be slow progress, but have seen some improvements already and plan to continue.

Overall, I am happy that I found out about Janee and Boise Dog Sports. Janee is a great trainer and I really enjoyed her enthusiasm, patience and positive approach to training. She’s brought some unique, new classes and training approaches to Boise and I’m looking forward to taking some of her other classes and group walk sessions. Donna

Our Yellow Lab Shellbea, became so excited to go anywhere in the car, or worse yet, to the vet that we weren’t comfortable bringing her into the vet’s office to wait for treatment. She would cause such a ruckus. We contacted Janee, of “Boise Dog Sports”, to see if she could help us with Shellbea’s lack of self-control. After only two sessions with Janee and following her guidance, Shellbea’s self-control is much improved. We still have a lot of work to do, but we are progressing every day. Janee creates a win-win training environment, making learning fun for a dog and owner.

We had the best experience with Janee. She gave us really valuable advice and guidance with our 2 year old dog, Bandito. We were having problems with Bandito lunge barking at people and other dogs. It was getting more difficult taking him to public places, even on walks to the beach. He is a large pitbull, lab, shepard mix and he can easily scare or intimidate people without barking so it was time to get outside help. We noticed a difference in just a week with the help of Janee’s training tips. We had four sessions with her and since the first one we havn’t had any bad experiences. She has given us valuable skills that Bandito has positively responded to, making us all eager to go on walks again. Bandito is doing really good and our confidence level with him has increased significantly. Janee was exactly what we needed! April J.


With your recommendations, Duke’s behavior is improving tremendously. We are happy! Nancy T.


Janee is wonderful with animals. You could instantly see the connection she has with them. We are so happy with our newly well-behaved Bentley! Shirali & Anton J.


I had the pleasure of first meeting Janee at my vet’s office where she worked as a vet tech. Janee has an amazing presence and energy around animals that is noticeable immediately. It is obvious that working around animals is truly her life purposes and that she is able to communicate and connect with animals in a loving and positive way. I don’t have any human children, and I consider animals family, so it was very important to me to find the perfect person to watch over my fur baby!

When I got my Golden Retriever puppy, I knew that Janee would be the perfect puppy sitter and trainer. Janee has been working with him since he was seven weeks old (he is now seven months). Janee’s positive reinforcement training has tremendously helped with his development. He has more confidence, listens well, and loves to learn new things. Janee is also very responsible and trustworthy, so I know he is always in good hands. Lisa C.


Working with Janee has been an absolute pleasure. Our dog was adopted at an older age and can be very nippy, but Janee had no problem working with him and has been able to greatly improve his behavior. She not only works with our dog, she also works closely with my boyfriend and I and gave us many valuable tools, insights and resources to further his training. Her communication with us and our dog has been outstanding and she has really helped better his behavior. Christel G.


Our dog came to us as a rescue on the older side, and while he’s always been incredibly sweet to us, he had some issues showing that side to other folks. Through Janee’s training, he’s made excellent progress in just a couple of months. In addition to having learned a ton, it’s very clear that he enjoys the training immensely. Janee is a pleasure to work with for humans, too, and I’d recommend her to everybody! Lanier S.


Janee and I worked together when she was the Program Trainer for Unchained at Juvenile Hall. She is delightful to work with and really cares about the experience of her students and others around her. Combine that with her knowledge and experience training dogs and other animals and you have an amazing trainer! Katya N.


Thank you SO much for helping Sunny and me.

Your observations and suggestions of what to do and, most of all, what not to do have made a huge difference in Sunny’s behavior. Everyone has been commenting on her changes. It’s still hard to stop and think and not react to some of her behavior issues but I am working on it. You’ve given me a good “tool box” of things to do. Candice M.


Janee is a wonderful positive trainer. You can tell how much she cares about all her students. Laurie C.


Janee worked with me and my reactive dog for two years. Prior to working with Janee, Summer was reactive towards other dogs as well as towards people. She was extremely anxious and I was worried she would never overcome her anxiety. Working with Janee has given me the tools and techniques to succeed with my dog, while remaining compassionate to her needs. I can now take Summer with me to various places and no longer have to worry about her reacting. Kimberly S.
