Why choose Outside the Crate?

Don't get a puppy if you don't want a dog!

Jayne is a born New Brunswicker who moved to the Hampton area from Halifax to be closer to her aging parents during the COVID crisis. She is semi-retired with over 30 years experience working in key leadership capacities for large corporations.


Dog training has always been Jayne's retirement dream job. She has been training informally for over 25 years. In September 2021, Jayne officially launched her business - Outside the Crate - after obtaining her professional dog training certification. Since then, Jayne has successfully trained 100's of puppies and dogs in both classroom and private settings.

Jayne completed her Professional Dog Training Program at the Ottawa K9 Academy. She is a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers (CAPDT), the Pet Professional Guild (PPG), and the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT). She has also received several certificates of completion, including Game Changing Dog Training through the Karen Pryor Academy (facilitated by Terry Ryan), Unleashed Potential - The Core Excellence Program with Duke Ferguson, Trainers Supporting Shelters & Rescue Programs (APDT), Top Dog Academy (Ian Dunbar), and more! Jayne is also an affiliate of SpiritDog Training - one of the best on-line learning platforms in the world.


Committed to providing the most innovative and effective solutions to her clients’ dogs' training needs, Jayne has spent hundreds of hours studying and researching best training practices from some of the worlds most famous trainers, to come up with her own unique style of training.


Jayne avidly pursues ongoing education and professional development by attending seminars and keeping current on all industry literature. She will give you step-by-step instruction on how to train your dog in all basic obedience behaviours and good manners. 


Outside the Crate’s most important role is to provide you - the client - with effective, professional and humane training for your dog. Training that makes your life easier, by teaching your dog how to behave and live within the rules and structure of normal family life.

Jayne looks forward to helping people who live in small townships and rural communities throughout Hampton, Sussex, Quispamsis, Rothesay, Saint John and all surrounding areas, with their dog training needs.

Outside the Crate is on a mission to bring this statistic down! That is why we focus on training puppies and

adolescent dogs between 8 weeks and 18 months of age. Even when a well-trained puppy becomes an adolescent

(at around 5 months of age), they'll make you wonder "WHAT WAS I THINKING?" when you got your pup!

New Brunswick has some amazing dog trainers. If OTC isn't the right fit for you or your puppy,

hire another trainer! Just, please, train your puppy!
