Expert Canine Client Reviews


"The training we received from Expert Canine exceeded our expectations. We have a 10-year-old dog who came to us from the shelter 8 years ago with lots of behavioral issues. Rain Jordan provided methods we were able to practice and implement easily on our own. We saw immediate improvement. As we continued to work with Rain, we saw more the issues abate. We are thrilled with Rain's positivity, kindness, clarity, and dedication to animal welfare."

"Rain is an incredibly professional, compassionate, and thoughtful dog trainer and behavior specialist. When I first adopted my rescued golden doodle, Rain helped me with her barrier (leash, car, fence, window) reactivity and separation distress. Rain instilled confidence in me as well as my dog, helping us both overcome the distress and embarrassment that comes from having a dog that sounds like a maniac on leash. We learned skills for long term behavior change and success, and my dog has gone from a skittish rescue to a confident companion. I highly recommend Expert Canine for dog training and behavior services."

“Freddy, a rescued greyhound, is dog reactive and we needed support to help both dog and human to be more confident when meeting other dogs. We found Rain through an article she had written about Learned Helplessness in greyhounds and worked with her via video conference. Rain was very accessible, easy to talk to, and explained concepts/strategies in such a way that we could immediately put them into practice. We also appreciated that Rain communicated with us in between consultations. Freddy made a lot of progress, including his humans, and we can keep working with Freddy without a feeling of panic. We highly recommend Rain.”

"Best trainer I've ever had. She laid out a plan after meeting me and my dog. She explained everything and my dog was trained and happy in the end. And the best part was I did not feel bad about like I had with other trainers! No yanking, no scolding, or yelling at the dog. What a great experience. Well worth it!" 

--Patty Veach


"Rain was wonderful to work with. My obstreperous 7 month old puppy decided she was his new best friend right away. We both learned new plans and the best part, never felt slow-witted. Seeing that Bear had a chance of being a 'good boy' [was another favorite part]."

"I recently adopted a dog that came from a hoarding situation. Within the first week at home, she began to show signs of leash/barrier reactivity (lunging, growling snapping at dogs and people), sound sensitivity and separation distress.  I immediately contacted Expert Canine for help because I knew these were issues I needed to address early on so that they wouldn't get worse.  Rain was incredibly thorough in her consultation and provided clear, achievable steps for me to begin working with my dog on her behavior issues. We've made great progress thanks to Rain's expertise and support."
