Behavior United LLC - Wheaton, MD
Life is challenging enough, training your companion animal doesn’t have to be. We use proven, force-free training technology with all of our clients, human and animal alike. All animals learn to perform behaviors that they find rewarding, and humans are no different. Whether it’s basic obedience training or more serious dog behavior issues, we apply the science of behavior and a team approach to help you meet your goals. Training time should be rewarding for both people and their pets!
Offering private lessons and group classes both in-person and online.

Jackie Moyano, BS, CPDT-KA, PMCT transitioned careers from a respiratory therapist to dog training. In addition to caring for patients, she also taught both patients and respiratory therapy students. Jackie's medical teaching experience lends itself well to teaching people how to train their dogs. Jackie's dog training education includes completing 3 of Pat Miller's academies, attending Ken Ramirez' Animal Training Seminar at SHEDD Aquarium, attending Sue Sternberg's Eden Internship working with Alaskan husky sled dogs, along with completing all 5 of the Bailey-Farhoody chicken workshops where Jackie learned animal training science and practiced training skills with chickens. Jackie actively pursues continuing education. Jackie's training partners are her Siamese cat and her terrier mix. Jackie enjoys commuting much more in her new electric vehicle. Jackie’s dog enjoys riding in the electric car to wooded trails for hiking - a favorite pastime.
What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
Be patient, be kind, be efficient, and be fun!
What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!
I strive for a collaborative training experience and encourage my clients to communicate freely with me, to discuss what's working and what isn't, and to share setbacks as well as successes. Using reward-based, force free training technology, we'll work together to create a more perfect union between you and your dog.
