Janelle Irvin, Owner & Lead Trainer

December 12, 2016 by ScholarOwner

A commitment to professionalism

With a name like Scholars in Collars it only makes sense that our owner and lead trainer be a scholar of dog behaviour and training.

Janelle is a nationally accredited Dog Behavioural Trainer with a Delta Institute Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services and has completed the rigorous and esteemed Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Trainer program. She is also a Certified Professional Dog Walker through the dogbiz Dog Walking Academy and certified in pet first aid and CPR.

Janelle maintains professional memberships with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and the Delta Institute, and actively seeks continuing education and ongoing professional development.

A passion for helping dogs and their people

There’s a reason Janelle is committed to this high level of education: She takes great pleasure in helping clients and students reach their training goals and enjoy the best in their dogs through science-based positive training. Nothing makes her happier than seeing well-behaved dogs and their people out in the community having fun together.

That passion drives Janelle to work with the next generation of dog lovers as well, educating TAFESA students in dog husbandry, health, welfare, behaviour, and handling.

Janelle’s volunteer work also includes her personal breed of choice, greyhounds. She gifts her time and expertise to various greyhound rehoming organisations and previously worked as the Foster Care Coordinator for the Greyhound Adoption Program of SA. She and a retired racing greyhound named Raymond are mutually devoted to each other.
