Tera Dschaak-James has always had a passion for animals – especially dogs. When her dog Scout was showing signs of behavior issues, she went looking for the most highly referred specialist in the region, Jen Biglan. After watching and working with Jen to modify Scout’s behavior using positive reinforcement and other techniques, Tera knew she wanted to educate dog owners – dedicating her time and energy to creating a better outcome for area families and dogs. Today, Tera teaches the importance of early socialization to ward off behavior problems in her popular puppy classes. Her Good Dog classes are fun and effective. Helping dogs integrate into a new home is one of her specialties.
