Jody Epstein, CPDT-KA

I'm a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, knowledge assessed (CPDT-KA), working in the Los Angeles area. I have a graduate education in animal learning and behavior. I'm currently working toward earning my certification in Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT) for dogs who over react (bark/lunge/growl or cower) when on leash. I've been a professional dog trainer and behavior consultant for about 7 years and take great pleasure in continuing my education and honing my skills.


I attended University of Montana, Missoula - Experimental Psychology PhD program and then transferred to the University of Louisiana - Lafayette - Cognitive Science PhD program.

I completed all of the coursework required for the PhD, but due to some of life's curve balls I never actually defended a dissertation.


Canine behavior & body language, training, behavior modification

Experience: 3 years of graduate school in the area of animal learning and behavior and about 7 years as a professional trainer and behavior consultant

I also publish articles periodically in a local pet-related paper called the Pet Press, available throughout southern California.
