Jess Kaddatz has a long history of loving and training dogs, from a child teaching her first cattle dog to jump over a broom and run through “tunnels” made of chairs, to performing in front of thousands of people with her current stunt and trick trained border collies.
Jess has been a member and breeder with the ANKC since 2012 and a Qualified Veterinary Nurse since 2011. She has spent her career learning from some of the best across multiple fields, including behaviour vets, specialists, dog trainers, instructors for obedience, flyball, agility, freestyle frisbee, lure coursing and circus performers. She considers herself lucky to have been able to help hundreds of dogs and their humans due to the extensive knowledge she’s learned from positive only and balanced trainers.
With a keen focus on building a strong bond with your dog, Jess will tailor a training plan that will fit with your lifestyle and personal training goals by teaching you to Train the Dog In Front of You.
Jess and George, their cats, ducks and border collies look forward to meeting you and your pets soon, they’ll guarantee to love and care for them like their own.
“My 11 month old Border Collie Boarded and Trained with Jess while we went away overseas. Jess kept up to date with photos and short videos. My very active puppy, was not very obedient and wanted to chase and herd and quite specifically she was difficult with my two year old grandson, wanting to jump all over him. Within a day of being home, she is calmer, she will respond to her “stay” command and loose lead walking. I am overjoyed at the care she received and her calmer persona and she is still under 12 months. Jess has a great knowledge re training and breeding dogs which is second to none. Oh! And my puppy was going through her first heat while boarding. Thank you Jess!” – Linda
“My 10 year old & 8 month old BC’s plus my 4 year old cat all stayed with Jess whilst we were on holidays. They ALL loved it. My cat was ready to come home (cats are homebodies after all) but my dogs (although ecstatic to see me) would have happily stayed longer. It’s lovely to know I can truly relax and enjoy my holidays knowing my dogs AND cat are happy and safe in the more than capable hands of Jess & George.” – Davene
“Jess is a natural with dogs. Not only do we learn so much but both my dog and I have a great time in the process. She is lovely to work with and happy to break things down until it works for you and your dog. My boy gets so excited as soon as we turn into the driveway. Jess has a beautiful way with dogs and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.” – Denise
“Like her dogs, Jess is highly intelligent, knows dogs and the reality of having a puppy in real life. She is down to earth and loves her dogs. She gave us a beautiful boy we call Maverick. She has guided me and helped me into the owner I am today. As a new Border Collie owner I was so grateful to find this breeder. She truly is one of a kind.” – Kat
“We had a great time learning how to work with our pup and Jess taught us how to give our pup the mental stimulation she really needed and wanted.” – Christine
