Jennifer Taylor

Jennifer Taylor

Owner/Founder

Jennifer Taylor managed almost 1 million square feet of commercial biotech properties with the leading REIT company for the life science industry. While climbing the corporate ladder she had to have an emergency surgery, months later was struck with auto immune problems forcing her to go on disability unable to work, barely able to get out of bed much less function.

During the recovery of her surgery, Brezzi found Jennifer and her family. Being an avid cat “worshipper” she never thought of having a dog, She loved them, as she loves all animals but was definitely a cat person. Until Brezzi locked eyes with her. Even though she could barely walk due to the surgery, she asked to see this big slightly chaotic chocolate Labrador puppy and as she chewed on Dwayne, her husbands ankles, her fingers, and Dishion her son’s shoes Jennifer felt a connection like never before and was deeply in love. They left that afternoon, and every time she closed her eyes she saw Brezzi’s eyes. The next day the entire family picked up Brezzi, without any knowledge of how ill she’d soon become and how much Brezzi would be a part of Jennifer’s healing journey. Read more about Jennifer Taylor

Tay

Tay

Dog Training Manager

Tay has lived up and down the West coast for their entire life. They have grown up with cats, dogs, fish, amphibians, and reptiles. Tay went to the University of Washington, the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences. Their degree is in Society, Ethics and Human Behavior with a minor in Human Rights. All throughout college people asked Tay “what do you want to do with that degree?” The answer was always “I don’t know, but I want to help people.”

This led to multiple service jobs, until one day the answer came to them in the form of a dear friend who was studying law. The friend talked about the courthouse dogs who were trained to help survivors and children testify. That was the most amazing idea Tay had come across yet. The idea of helping people by working with animals was an absolute dream!

Tay enrolled in the Northwest School of Canine Studies and was certified in Canine Studies. This meant studying the history of dogs and dog training, genetics of dogs, temperament, dog body language and more. Tay has been working with dogs ever since.

Tay specializes in puppies, aggression, separation anxiety, and reactivity, but works every case with passion and compassion. Tay has trained their own dogs to have good manners, as well as worked them through problem areas like separation anxiety, reactivity, resource guarding, car sickness and more; this makes Tay a uniquely qualified trainer in multi-pet households, and homes where big problems lie.

Tay can sympathize deeply with owners who struggle with these problems, because they have been in that situation as well! Tay has also trained their cat and sister’s cats, that’s right, you can train cats! The kitties do fun tricks like finger-targeting and “hugging.” Tay has worked with dozens of dogs across a spectrum of needs for both the animals and their human companions!
