Jessica Kelly grew up in a log cabin, in a small Northern Ontario town, surrounded by animals, both domestic and wild! Her fondness for all animals presented at a very early age, but she had a particular interest in dog training and handling.

Jessica has completed the training of one of her dogs to be a service animal. Jessica is also training and handling multiple dogs in Schutzhund and various dogs sports. She is also raising dogs for law enforcement and various service agencies.
