JTS Dog Training


Sacramento Dog Trainer


Owner / Sacramento Dog Trainer

Hi, my name is James and I am a Sacramento Dog Trainer.  For as long as I can remember, my life has basically revolved around dogs.  During my career, I have worked with dogs for over 10 years as a professional trainer and handler.

To begin with, I started my career in the United States Navy training Military Working Dogs tasked with scent detection and attack work. During my time in the military, I spent 4 years as a professional handler.  In addition to Navy law enforcement, I also served on presidential protection missions with the Secret Service. 

Afterwards, I trained service dogs for 4 years in Sacramento CA as well as leading classes in obedience, behavior modification, and agility for the general public. I have also been a CGC Evaluator for 5 years, certified through the American Kennel Club in Canine Good Citizen, Puppy S.T.A.R., Advanced Community Canine, and Urban Canine.  

All of this led me towards an educational career exploring the true power of a dog’s senses.  I have my Bachelors degree with Honors in Psychology and Education from the University of California, Davis.  Furthermore, I earned degrees in Psychology, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Natural Sciences from Sierra College with Highest Honors.

All in all I have brought my multifaceted experience together to offer science-based, effective dog training to all dogs regardless of size, breed, or temperament.



Firstly, if you’re looking for a trainer who’ll throw on an e-collar and guarantee your dog’s behavior will change, you won’t find that here. Also, if all you’re interested in is teaching your dog to sit and come, save your money and visit YouTube for these instructions.  I can even recommend some videos for you. Finally, if you’re looking for knowledge that’ll last a lifetime, and if you want to know how to create a strong bond between your dog and all the animals you’ll own in the future, feel free to give me a call. I’d love to help!

I cannot guarantee changed behavior, and be wary of the morals and methods of any trainer that does. What I can guarantee, however, is that you’ll be satisfied with each and every lesson we have together. My hope is that you’ll leave every week with a plethora of information, that way you can make changes in your life that’ll help you foster a better relationship between you and your dog.
