Jamie Cline, ABCDT
Certified Dog Trainer – Lakewood Ranch
Jamie’s interest in dog training started while she was in school to become a veterinary technician. One of her required courses was on animal behavior and as part of her course work she had to train a dog and she fell in love. She decided to switch her career path and enrolled in Animal Behavior College’s (ABC) canine training program which she graduated in April of 2020. During her schooling, she continued to grow her working knowledge by training dogs for family and friends.
Before arriving at Bayside Pet Resort, Jamie served as the main trainer at a board and train facility where she was able to use the skills she learned at ABC. She is excited to expand her knowledge of animal behavior by becoming one of our Pet Pals and Daycare attendants. Jamie’s excellent work with the dogs and drive to become a trainer led to her shadowing for the position here. She enjoys working with all the dogs that come through our doors and excels at reading the dogs by discerning what training methods will best work for them.
She wishes to continue her growth here at Bayside Pet Resort and learn about different sports, such as agility and rally. Jamie hopes to become a certified AKC Evaluator and explore even more dog training certifications. We know that under her guidance your pups will certainly thrive!
Liz Shore, UW-AAB
Dog Behavior Specialist – Sarasota
Animals were always a passion for her but at 16 years old, when Liz got her first job at a pet store, she really started to learn and understand dogs. Later, while in college, Liz took a psychology class as an elective to her Marine Science program. In that first psychology class, she realized her passion and fascination with behavior and switched majors. In the spring of 2011, Liz earned her BA in Psychology with a focus on behavior management from Coastal Carolina University. In the fall of 2020, she then earned her Certification in Applied Animal Behavior from the University of Washington.
Liz has been a professional dog trainer for 10 years now, and not only does she have an incredible ability to understand the dogs she works with, but the people as well. Her passion for training and her love of dogs are what continue to drive Liz on a daily basis. In training communication is key, so it is no surprise that one of her biggest goals is to help the dogs and their people communicate effectively. Liz hopes to see every dog, as well as its owners, living happy, confident lives with trust and understanding between them.
Training Instructor – Osprey
Tracey’s journey in dog training began at the age of 8 when he took his young farm collie, to a basic obedience class. After his first taste of training, he enrolled in as many classes as he could find. Eventually, he developed into a specialist for bird hunting dogs. Throughout his 50+ years of experience in training, he has earned his title as one of the “Top Five Trainers in the South” (Garden & Gun Magazine).
His love of recreational bird hunting turned into training every weekend in high school with bird hunting breeds. His first job in the industry occurred naturally when he was invited to a hunting club and was offered a training position on the spot after the owner saw him in action. From that point, his reputation grew across the country and he was called to several states where he began focusing on the behavioral correction.
Tracey’s training ideology is to think like a dog, but only the smartest one. Now that he is working with dogs who are pets, he’s driven by his ability to make parents proud to say “That’s my dog, I’m comfortable taking them anywhere with me.”
Joan Maund, CDT
Training Instructor – Sarasota & Osprey
Joan has worked, trained, and volunteered with dogs for over 15 years. While working on her psychology degree she adopted a 2-year-old German Shepard with severe separation anxiety among other behavioral issues. Already working as a pet sitter, dog walker, and training in agility, she began to work with trainers to help her German Shepard. She realized that human and dog psychology was the same so after graduating she went on to get her professional dog trainer certification through the International Association of Canine Professionals in 2009. Since then, she has devoted herself to helping dogs and the people who love them.
She has competed and trained in agility, earning excellent titles on two of her dogs, one of the highest designations for competition. She has taught classes on puppy, basic obedience, behavioral modification, agility, and all AKC CGC titles. She has trained and graduated from therapy and service dogs. She has taken classes and worked with other trainers in nose work, rally, freestyle, and utility as well as attending seminars to stay current on the newest and best training philosophies. A volunteer at numerous shelters over the last 15 years, she is currently volunteering at the Humane Society of Sarasota County and Satchel’s Last Chance Resort and Rescue.
She believes dogs learn best through positive reinforcement, consistency, and giving dogs the ability to problem solve and make the right choices with our guidance.
