Jade Burdick
Owner and Trainer


Having always had a passion for animals, particularly dogs, Jade has been involved in the training or welfare of animals her entire life. She worked as a veterinary assistant for nine years at a mixed animal practice, at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine during her undergraduate studies, and at an equestrian facility as a riding instructor, camp director and therapeutic riding instructor.

Jade's credentials include:

  • Louisiana State University
    • Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science  
  • Master Trainer Program at Highland Canine School for Dog Trainers
    • Certification as a Canine Trainer and Behavior Modification Professional
    • Certification as a Service Dog Trainer
    • Certification as a Search and Rescue Dog Trainer and a Detection Dog Trainer

Jade has years of experience handling dogs with a variety of severe behavior issues like extreme fearfulness, aggression and dominance. She has also trained and handled dogs of various disciplines such as narcotic and explosive detection dogs, bed bug detection dogs, patrol dogs, protection dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs and trailing dogs. She has trained and worked with dogs of all ages, breeds and size.

Jade understands that training dogs is not only about training the dog, but working with owners and handlers to educate them on how to form a bond with their dog that cannot be broken. In addition to being a trainer, she has owned dogs all her life, so she can relate to dog owners and help them accomplish what goals they have in mind. Jade dedicates herself to working hard in order to get excellent results for dogs and their owners.
