Meet the Trainer

Our training program is led by head trainer Jessica Belcher.

Jessica has been in the pet industry for more than 15 years, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to The Collar Club training program.

During her time in the pet industry, she has completed an in-depth two year apprenticeship on canine behavior and obedience, been accepted as an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and is Professional member of IACP. In addition to her dog training experience, Jessica also specializes in teaching canine CPR and first aid.

Jessica has three dogs at home, her two Australian Cattle Dogs, Aspen and Diggity who are often by her side, and Riley her senior Jack Russell. When she isn’t spending time outside with her pups, she is often found teaching Aspen or Diggity a new trick or snuggling with Riley at home. Jessica is always looking to build upon her expertise and learn new ways to further her ability to improve the lives of all dogs she works with.

CGC | AKC Canine Good Citizen Test

This is a six week course where you spend the first five weeks preparing for test day. This is a fantastic class for those who have dogs that are nearly ready for the test but may need a little practice prior. Test date is held on the final date of class and will be Evaluated by an AKC evaluator.

AKC Community Canine(CGCA) and AKC Urban Canine(CGCU)

These are held as single testing dates and require your dog to have completed AKC CGC first. The goal of the CGCA and CGCU is to test your dog's skills in a more natural setting as opposed to a classroom or show ring.

Sunday Seminar

The Sunday Seminar program is built as a refresher course for those who need help in a more specific area. The classes will be held for one hour on Sundays and focus on one training area per class such as place, leash walking, recall, sit and down. Class attendance does not require any prior training or classes.

After losing two of the best dachshunds in the world, I made the leap to two wonderful Golden Retrievers. I knew I would need help navigating the world of active large breed dogs, and Jess has been there every step of the way to help me navigate through this change. I have two well-mannered dogs, thanks to the training Jess has provided and continues to provide us. Not only does she have a special way with dogs - she has the same with their humans. I trust Jess completely with my boys which is huge. She truly is a dog-whisperer in the kindest and gentlest way. She's simply one of the best!

My dog has truly grown in the short time I’ve been attending classes at The Collar Club. I love going to class and love spending time training at home with skills learned from class. I’ve been to other dog training classes but this is by far the best I’ve been a part of. I’ll continue taking classes as much as possible.

We have a one year old Aussiedoodle who we have been bringing to the Collar Club regularly since July. The best thing we did for her was enroll her in the dog training classes offered by Jessica Belcher. Jessica is a very knowledgeable, kind and dedicated professional. Our dog thrived under her expert tutelage. We did the bronze and silver classes. In addition to the classes, Jessica was always willing and able to answer our questions and concerns we had about dog care and behavior.
