Rescue Dog Specialist

Rescue Dogs are the heart of Sandstrom Dog Training. 5 years as a kennel hand in a no kill shelter and in turn adopting a beautiful but behaviourally challenged rescue dog became the catalyst for Sandstrom Dog Training!

Hi. I’m Jess, the founder of Sandstrom Dog Training.

Dogs have been our companions and friends for thousands of years, but never before have they had to conform to the environmental and social constraints of humans in the way they do now.

``I believe, by helping my clients create a deep relationship which goes beyond the basic dog/owner dynamic, the benefits are not only for the team I’m working with, but greatly reduces the risk of dogs being surrendered to shelters, or abandoned due to behaviour which may be labelled as ‘antisocial’.``

I use science based, positive reinforcement techniques, allowing both person and dog the space to learn how to communicate with each other without the use of force, and allowing their relationship to flourish.
