Jennifer White, Presenter
With more than 20 years in training and animal behavior consultation, Jennifer has worked with animals of all shapes and sizes, from dogs and cats to marine mammals and horses. She holds a bachelors degree in developmental psychology from Tufts University and is the proprietor of Laughing Dog Enterprises operating out of the beautiful Rivendale facility in Woodinville, Washington.
Jennifer has actively developed her training techniques and understanding of animal behavior during her two decades as a professional trainer. She stays current through attendance of seminars and workshops, literary research, and contact with colleagues.
While working at the MSPCA and Angell Memorial Hospital in Boston, she participated in a canine rehabilitation project and was chosen by the national president of the Animal Behavior Association to help pilot a new positive obedience training program. At the New England Aquarium, Jennifer served as a marine mammal trainers' assistant and education associate.
Her professional experience and degree from Tufts are complemented by additional coursework in animal behavior at Harvard University, and by a true joy of working with people and their animals.
Jennifer recently moved back to the Seattle area after years of serving the Olympic Peninsula's pet owning community. She offers group dog training classes & workshops for owners of companion animals who are committed to using motivational, non-force methods that preserve a positive relationship and keep training fun for all. Her classes aim to provide dog owners with an education in canine behavior that will provide answers to all training issues throughout their lives with their dogs.
Jennifer also offers private behavior consultation services for all animal species. The other half of her practice involves preparing flower essence therapy blends for people and animals all around the world to help with behavior and health concerns. (What are Flower Essences?
