Meet Your Trainer: Janis Copes, ABCDT

I have had a love of dogs all my life and at a young age dreamt of training Seeing Eye Dogs. My first exposure to obedience training was in 1986 with my Maltese, Tara. I have continued to train all of my dogs in obedience since. I have two rescue dogs: Sissy is an Australian Cattle Dog mix and Credentialed Therapy Dog, Clark is a Schnauzer mix.

I work with Animal Assisted Therapy Services (AaTs) in therapeutic settings with mentally and emotionally disabled children, teenagers and adults. I have partnered with AaTs to board and train Emotional Support Animals, former AaTs Board Member and Canine Committee Co-Chair. 

I teach obedience classes for Country Companions Veterinary Services in Bethany, Lock Stock & Barrel in Bethany, Prospect Park and Recreation, Naugatuck Park and Recreation and a former trainer for Trap Falls Kennel Club, in Shelton.

I am a honors graduate and Mentor Trainer for Animal Behavior College, member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, Pet Professional Guild, supporting member of the International Association of Behavioral Consultants and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Instructor/Evaluator. 

Escape The Crate, LLC uses force free training to teach obedience cues, eliminate behavior issues and build trusting bonds between owners and their pets. We also offer pet sitting in a home environment without the use of kennels which eliminates stress for the pet and the owner.
