ABOUT US

about mountain dog inc.

Jessica Apperson, owner of Mountain Dog Inc. knows that a well-behaved, happy dog is easy to manage within and outside of the home. Her approach to dog training begins with assessing the state of mind of each dog before implementing a treatment plan to teach well-mannered behavior and extinguish unwanted ones. 

Mountain Dog Inc. offers various training programs designed to meet the needs of every dog and owner, as well as outdoor adventures, and boarding. Once a dog is thoroughly assessed, a treatment plan to best meet the behavioral goals will be determined and discussed with the owner beforehand. Jessica works with dogs of all breeds, temperaments, and behavioral issues, except those with aggression toward humans.

Weather permitting, a lot of the training takes place in a mountain environment with Jessica’s pack of veteran dogs that motivate and encourage new dogs to adopt positive behavior, polite socialization, desensitization to stimuli, and has the added benefit of receiving exercise further enhanced deep within nature.

about jessica apperson

Since early childhood, Jessica has innately bonded with animals of all kinds. Her approach to dog training begins with assessing the state of mind of each dog before implementing a treatment plan. Jessica is more concerned with first building trust in the relationship she has with each dog, which is key for motivating the learning process more easily and effectively. Jessica’s philosophy of dog training places the highest value on the dog’s overall well-being. She understands how a dog pushed too hard before its time and readiness results in a stressed dog, ultimately acting out with unwanted behavior.

Jessica is certified in Therapeutic Animal Therapy, having used both dogs and horses in her earlier years of working with children, some of whom had mental, emotional, and physical challenges. She brings all her natural ease, extensive skillset, and decades of experience training dogs in her unique way to meet their fullest potential and the desired goals of their owners.
