Oberhund Dog Services & Products (est. 2005), owned and operated by Jennifer Berg, CPDT-KA, CDBC, provides force-free dog training and behaviour modification services that focus on promoting dogs’ emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. Jennifer’s dog training and behaviour modification expertise and instruction is based in current science, guided by the humane principles of LIMA, and begins with addressing the underlying causes of behaviours including the dog’s emotional state.
Jennifer has over 17 years of experience teaching private and group dog training classes and she strongly believes in the importance of continuing education, especially because the dog training industry is unregulated. She has earned two important internationally-recognized certifications: 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; and Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC) credentials with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. Both of these well-established, top-tier organizations require robust continuous education to maintain certifications.
Did you know a “behaviour consultant” is different from a behaviourist (or a behaviorist). In the unregulated dog training industry, anyone can call oneself a behaviourist (or behaviorist) but the credentials required to earn the professionally recognized designation “behaviorist” such as Associate Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (ACAAB) and Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (CAAB) involve a Master’s degree and doctorate from an accredited university with an emphasis on biological or behavioural science and animal behaviour.
Jennifer Berg is the editor of the quarterly newsletter for the Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a national organization dedicated to improving dog training through education. She completed a 60-hour Missing Animal Response course where she received instruction in K9 pet detective search dog training, and she volunteers to help local lost & found dogs.
