 OWNER | JEN

Jen has always been a dog lover. She grew up with many family dogs throughout her childhood: Golden Retrievers, a Labrador and a Border Collie mix. As an adult, she first rescued a Pitbull mix and then rescued a Great Dane mix from the local shelters.

No matter the size or breed, Jen falls in love with every single dog she meets. She loves their happy souls, curiosity for adventure, ability to spread joy, and the fact that they have such a natural, pure, unconditional love of life and those they get to spend it with.

She has specialized certification in:
- dog first aid and CPR
- different breeds and canine behavior
- dog communication
- the dynamics of dog play and interaction
- basic dog training skills and theory using positive methods
- fear and aggression in dogs: identifying and solving conditioned fears
- curing canine anxiety
- and many more

Jen truly enjoys giving back to the community, volunteering her time at local rescues and shelters, and helping others.

She earned her bachelors degree in Marketing from Purdue University. After years of working in corporate America, she combined her degree and her passion to create her lifelong dream: Barx Parx.
