Happy Dogs @ Home is run by two sisters based out of South Windsor and Glastonbury who share a lifelong commitment to help make every dog we meet a very happy dog. Jan Nasiadka is an experienced Professional Certified Dog Trainer and Joanne Ferreira is a dog walker and pet sitter Certified in Pet First Aid.
Jan has over 20 years of experience rehabilitating and training various mixed and pure bred dogs and makes a commitment to remain on the cutting edge of dog training by consistently advancing her skills as a Canine Sports Massage Therapist and National AKC Evaluator. She has a strong relationship in the community and volunteers her services to several rescue organizations.
Jan has come to have a unique understanding and bond with dogs of all sizes and temperaments. Her specialty is personalized training sessions to fit your lifestyle in the privacy of your own home and neighborhood. Her methods involve blending the Physical Sciences as well as Behavioral Temperament while using only positive reinforcement techniques. Her courses are custom tailored to you and the specific needs of your dog. Jan will be your personal trainer as well, coaching you every step of the way so that in the end, you and your dog will have a bond and understanding far greater than ever before.
Joanne is an experienced dog handler who is also certified in Pet First Aid. Her specialty is not just giving your dog a exercise and a potty break, but creating a unique bond with them so their time with her is truly a rewarding experience. An animal lover all her life, she currently lives with Josie and Luca, her two Wire-haired Pointing Griffons and Paulo, a Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot.
She is an avid skier, kayaker, and hiker who loves the outdoors and never tires of walking dogs on trails or around neighborhoods. Joanne believes the happiest dogs are cared for in their own home and she welcomes the opportunity to care for your dogs, too!
This company is a God send. They have performed services from training my puppy, to working with behavioral issues, from dog sitting, dog “babysitting”, over night visits, etc. I have never experienced such professionalism, passion and quality from any other dog care. Highly recommend them. This company goes above and beyond their services. I leave my dogs, who are family to me and my family, and do not worry at all about their care and well being. These women show love to your dogs as you would. They take the place of you when you are not there. I am happy to say that my dogs and my family are also “family” to Happy Dogs At Home. If you have dogs, and you want the best care possible, look no where else, this is the company for you.
