ABOUT
Joy Jones

My name is Joy, I have been around dogs my whole life, and I enjoy the benefits of training them.  When I started training I found that the old techniques used: command, heel, jerk, and shove, turned my once friendly outgoing puppy into a turtle.  She was too sensitive for that kind of training. That's when Operant Conditioning Training came into my life.  Together we learned the techniques and she worked happily with me and came out of her shell with a smile. With Operant Conditioning Training the method of training helps you work with your dog, you work better as a team, and you achieve a positive outcome. Every dog learns differently and by using these techniques together I will help you to train your dog to work with you and be a great addition to your family.
  
Joy has worked with Sandy since her early teens. She has over 25 years of experience with all breeds and has successfully trained champion dogs. She has attained Agility Titles NA and OA, and owns Classy Kennels, specializing in Border Collies. Her current Border Collies are: CH. High Flying Spirit, CH. Classy Touch of Jewels, and CH. Classy Isabella Defies Gravity. She has shown her dogs in Conformation and in 2002 "puppy" Jewel got her AKC Championship at only 9 month old! Jewel had her first litter with Cowboy in 2003. Jewel and Spirit are Nationally renowned for being  Noteworthy Dams. CH. Isabella achieved her championship in 2013.  Patience and consistency are part of the techniques that Joy teaches. Early socialization of her puppies make them ideal pets as well as wonderful working dogs. She helps our students give their own dogs the same benefits that she gives her dogs.
