Oberhund Dog Services & Products (est. 2005) offers force-free dog training and behaviour modification services as well as consultation services for dog-centric projects.
Oberhund is owned and operated by Jennifer Berg BA, BEAD, CPDT-KA, and her goal is to promote dogs’ physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing to help make the community a better place for dogs and their people.
In 2014 Jennifer Berg became Regina’s first Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) — credentials from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, the leading independent certifying organization for professionals in the dog training industry. She has over 14 years of experience teaching private and group classes:
- basic manners,
- low-stress dog walking,
- cooperative care (e.g. grooming, vet exams)
- addressing/preventing over-reactivity/fear/aggression/hyper-arousal, and
- enrichment such as dog parkour, SEARCH Fun, and SUP PUP (teaching dogs how ride a paddle craft safely).
Jennifer strongly believes in the importance of continuing education, and is working towards more certifications as her busy schedule allows. She has her Pet First Aid training from Walks ‘N’ Wags, Red Cross Basic First Aid and CPR/AED Level C, and in 2015 she completed a 60-hour Missing Animal Response course where she received instruction in K9 pet detective search dog training. She volunteers to help local lost & found dogs and cats and is currently researching dog-park conflicts to improve dog park designs.
