Jenn Weinik began her journey working with dogs in 1994 while she worked at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital’s Inpatient/Outpatient Pharmacy where she started really discovering the world of dogs and training. She did many years of pet therapy work with her Alaskan Malamute, August, at Children’s Hospital and Cathedral Village. She fell in love with Competitive Obedience after getting her first German shepherd dog, Felix, who needed much more than exercise as an outlet for his tremendous energy. She now trains working line Belgian Malinois with her focus being on building speed, attitude, and consistency, while maintaining precision. Her current competition dog, Cookie God of War, earned her OTCH 2 at the age of 3 despite COVID. She works privately as a pet trainer and is known for problem solving difficult dogs. She has been teaching various pet dog classes like Beginners, Pet Therapy Prep, and Intermediate and Advanced Manners since 2013. Jenn believes that training dogs is a process in which you never stop learning.
