What's New At Turn Around Training!

Turn Around Training is thrilled to introduce our Walk and Train services. Walk and Train combines both a mid day potty break with a custom training plan for your dog. This service is ideal for jumpy pulling adolescent dogs, fearful and reactive dogs or as a way to supplement your dogs training plan ad keep it all consistent. Behavior plans are customized for your dog by Michelle Welch CPDT-KA, CVT and implemented by Jodi Orourke .

Jodi is a designer, artist, and animal lover. She's grown up with dogs and cats and a few years ago adopted a sweet, gentle greyhound named Merlin. She often draws inspiration from him and other four-legged friends in her artwork. After several years in the educational publishing industry, Jodi made the decision to leave the books behind and pursue her passion for taking care of and training dogs. She volunteers at a local shelter and is working towards her CPDT certification. Jodi brings compassion, respect, and a good dose of humor to her canine and human interactions.
