    Jack and his methods came at just the right time. Our puppy was frustrating us to no end, with teething, biting, running away, etc. (all puppy behaviors). Jack came in and in one session adjusted our techniques so that the dog knew who was boss. Jack went away. We continued to do "our best", but the dog took control again. Again, we called Jack. Second session, and the dog is back in line. The training is for us, not as much for the dog. And boy, does it work. We are feeling grateful and appreciative of Jack and his words of wisdom. Thank you.

    I have a French Bulldog Alfie who is very strong willed.
    I was having a tough time training him.
    Jack came over. He taught him how to walk correctly right by my side, no pulling, no barking at other dogs. We walk now every day and it's completely enjoyable. Alfie was also having a problem barking at house guests that came to the door.
    Jack took care of that in the first hour of meeting him. I also love that anytime I have a problem with my puppy he is willing to help. I just got a new puppy and I will definitely be using Jack's help again

    Jack is the absolute best! We have used other trainers, but never had success so quickly. We have two large breed dogs that did not consistently walk nicely on the leash. Within just a few sessions, Jack transformed our walking experiences. We couldn't be happier!

    Jack is A plus. He is kind, flexible with his scheming and has really helped me improve behavioral issues on both my miniature Schnauzers. He made obedience training fun ... for me and my pups!!!

    Jack is great. Seriously. We went thru one trainer before Jack and it was awful. After one training session with Jack, we knew he was the one for our dog. We have a large breed puppy right now and it's been important for us to set the right expectations for the dog and our family from the start. Jack's not going to sugar coat anything. He knows dogs and has been training them for years. Look him up, he's one of the most respected dog handlers and trainers out there. Definitely recommend.

    Jack is awesome! He will definitely help you understand your pet better and create a strong relationship with them. He is very flexible with time and place and always willing to give his input. Very nice man and highly recommended for any sort of training that you may have in mind

    In December 2018, my wife and I adopted a 1 year old 50 pound black lab/pit bull mix from a shelter. Within 10 days it ran head first into my wife and shattered her knee. We realized quickly that we needed a professional dog trainer, and were lucky to find Jack Jagoda. Jack came to our home and worked with me since my wife was immobile. After four, that's right just FOUR two hour sessions, I was able to walk Pepper down our main street, on a leash of course, stopping at street intersections, with people and their dogs walking by and traffic going past. Jack was behind us giving guidance, but from a sweet but wild great big puppy to a manageable and wonderful household pet, it has been an incredible transition. Jack even came by for a free follow up session to be sure Pepper was behaving! We will always be thankful to Jack. My wife had knee surgery but she and Pepper are doing fine!

    If you’re looking for the best dog trainer in Palm Desert, go no further than where Jack Jagoda lives and trains dogs. He is the best trainer we ever encountered in California. My husband and I, and most importantly our puppy Zion appreciate and admire he’s work.

    From a scheduling standpoint, Jack is flexible, responsive and punctual. He ensures the training job is complete, and won't leave you disappointed. Can't say enough great things about Jack!

    I have a 1 year old Aussie and tried 2 other trainers for a few issues I hadn't been able to correct, with no real success. Literally 1 session with Jack gave me the tools I was missing and made a night and day difference with leash walking and my pup's reaction to other dogs. 4 more sessions provided additional tools. If I lived in the area I would be meeting with Jack every month or so. Walking her on a leash is now very enjoyable and no longer a tugging match or stopping every few steps (for leash pulling) for the entire walk (the stop every time she pulls method did not work for us). I can't thank you enough, Jack!!!

    I have worked with many trainers over the years, none are as effective as Jack, he truly is a dog whisperer!

    I was raised in a home with Labs and have had Golden Retrievers for the 50+ years since. After recently taking in a new 8 week old pup, I soon realized the training methods I have been using with success were just not connecting with this incredibly head strong alpha. Then I found Jack! After much observation and questioning he zeroed in on what the underlying problem was and why she did not want to accelerate into the most basic exercises as most pups do. One week later I have a ten week old girl who is responding with eye contact, enjoying brief training sessions, and most important enjoying the bond now being forged between us. A pup full of confidence to learn and have fun doing so. Jack's knowledge is unmatched as is his way to view a dog and take all his experience to identify behaviors with the modification needed in a positive way. I highly recommend, you will not be disappointed and surely be amazed at the results as they unfold in front of you. Thank you Jack!

    Jack is very special in every way he is a joy to work with. He is patient, kind and generous to the dog and more importantly to the human as well. Jack is truly unique...you will become a fan.

    Jack is THE BEST!!!!!! After trying everything under the sun to contain our anxiety ridden pit mix, she tore up all our wooden shutters in the house, I googled " dog therapists" and Jack's name was the first in line. I called him, he let me know he would meet my dog and evaluate the situation. He indicated he wouldn't waste my money or his time if we were not willing to be on the program with him. I immediately liked his honest approach! Hemet with us and our dog, was quick to analyze and evaluate the situation, took so much time talking to us about her anxiety and REALLY cared about finding resolve to our situation. After 4 sessions, I can honestly say we have a new dog. She is well behaved, more secure when we leave the house, has not destroyed anything and is able to walk by other dogs without going after them. We owe it all to Jack's patience, support and encouragement! He responded quickly to all our calls and texts, he was extremely flexible with time frames (we both work full time) and most importantly, made our interaction with our dog so very positive. The best lesson we learned was that he made us aware of our inconsistencies which, when modified, ultimately helped so much with our dogs behavior. We learned that discipline and consistency is the key to a well-trained dog. We would HIGHLY recommend this wonderful man!

    I have brought my retriever problems to Jack over the years. It's not always the dog!

    Jack is a very impressive dog trainer with a great understanding of dog issues. We have two young Scottish Terriers and one of them was very aggressive with other dogs. Jack helped us to socialize him very quickly so a walk in the park became enjoyable. Great person and gentlemen to deal with. Very easy to contact and arrange appointments. Highly recommend Jack.

    I cannot say enough good things about Jack. He is a very nice man that has helped me understand and train my dogs. He has a lot of experiencewith different breeds and can explain certain behaviors and attitudes. He is very flexible with time and place and is always willing to give advice. If you want to understand and develop and profound relationship with your furry friend, definitely contact Jack

    Jack has been training my Labs for 20 years. Great trainer

  • *****

    1 year, 2 other trainers, and a lot of money and stress could not fix my pup. I was beginning to think she was hopeless until just a few sessions with Jack and we’re on the right track. I now have a happier more balanced dog that is finally understanding what I expect of her when in public. Don’t waste your money with the other trainers, hire the best the first time. Thank you Jack!

    Jack is a wealth of knowledge and insight to help me and my dog understand each other.
