Off Leash Reliability
Reliable behavior for fun adventures & better manners!
You got your dog to be your buddy! Let's build an awesome relationship.
You understanding your dog better & your dog understanding you better.
Frustrated with your dog's behavior?
Where to start?? Pulling your arm out of the socket on a walk, not coming back when called, stealing items in the house, guarding those items, jumping up on guests, barking & lunging at other dogs, people, cars? Your dog has you embarrassed & exhausted on a daily basis.
Do you know there is more possible?
You know your dog is smart & capable of great things, but how do you get them there? Your dog's current emotional responses are barrier to your success together. A hyperactive, nervous, anxious, fearful or aggressive state of mind can block your dog's true potential.
Want to have a dog you actually like?
Let's face it, a dog with behavior issues doesn't make for a great bestie. This is not the picture you envisioned when bringing home your pup. You've perhaps questioned if this is the right dog for you. Possibly even had thoughts of rehoming them.
Hi! Welcome to the Canine Cooperative!
Hi! We are Jaimee Wenzel (FKA Applaws Dog Training) and Sabrina Joens (FKA Good Dogma). Both long time dog trainers and behavior consultants, we happened to find ourselves working in the exact same town! What would spark competition with some, developed into an amazing friendship over the years. We began working together through the collaborative efforts of our separate businesses, soon realizing we had created something really special. The Canine Cooperative was born out of our shared love for helping people and sharing our knowledge with owners to help them be successful with their dogs.
Welcome to common sense dog training; where obedience meets mind set.
Learn how to successfully live, understand & nurture your relationship with your dog.
Gus the Goldendoodle
The best investment anyone can make on their dog! Sabrina’s training transformed our relationship with our dog—we’re able to include him in all aspects of our busy life and he can now enjoy life out and about with us. She turned Gus into the perfect family dog. Sabrina is wonderful to work with and a lifelong resource!
Vinny the Wheaton
I highly recommend Sabrina (Good Dogma). Our 3 year old Soft Coated Wheaten, Vinny, developed some bad habits and the last straw was his “nipping” strangers. He stayed with Sabrina for 3 weeks, and today we welcomed home our loving, but now well mannered Vinny. This review is genuine, I did not know Sabrina personally, but heard a great success story from a friend. Our families only regret is not sending Vinny to Sabrina sooner.
Nyla the Pittie Mix
We took our 8 month old pup on her first camping trip! Thanks to Sabrina & her program, she did amazing! Heeled, sat & would come when called (all off leash) with so much going on around her, lots of people, dogs, atvs. And wow, “tone” recall when she was on the other side of the property, love it! We’re sooo proud of Nyla & her training! Sabrina is amazing at what she does, we can’t thank her enough for her expertise in training & teaching us!!!
Josie the Hound Mix
We had tried other trainers and classes but never found the proper tools to help our big, anxious (lovable!) dog. We lacked communication, a way to say "no", control reactivity, and were getting pulled around the block on walks every day! The training was a reset for our dog, helping her in so many different areas--leash walking, reactivity, calm place, crate, thresholds. She is more calm, controlled, and speaks our language! The training easily transferred to us at home, and if you stay the course, only gets better with time!
Sabrina's professionalism and care can't be beat. In the first few minutes of meeting her, she put us at ease with her calm, loving personality. She does not judge you or your dog! Good Dogma lays the ground work and sets you up for success. She continued to be a lifeline for us even months after the training. Beyond grateful for Sabrina and Good Dogma. If your dog's behavior is a constant conversation or problem, you have found the answer at Good Dogma!
Rufus the Hound
Where do I start! Sabrina is amazing. She truly cares about all the dogs that enter her house. She takes them in and allows them to be part of her family. She is soooo knowledgeable. Within the first few hours with her, my mind was filled with so much knowledge. Our love, Rufus is a new and improved boy and we are so proud of him. Sabrina worked with him for hours and days to improve his behavior. Rufus could not be in a room without us and had terrible anxiety. He would constantly pull during walks and jumped up (A LOT). Thanks to Sabrina, he no longer does this. He has become the good boy we knew he always was. We love our Rufus more than words can describe and thanks to Sabrina, he is always a good boy. Thanks Sabrina for all your help and continued support. She is the BEST!
