see some more of TPA's past clients and apprentices

We never forget about clients here at Tulsa Pack Athletics.  They will all have a special place in our heart after they finish a program with us. Spending time with someone everyday for 14, 30, 44, or more days together you really form a bond.  Look below to see some past clients and sometimes the struggles they began with. ❤️

Kiersten and Phoenix

Kiersten and Phoenix

Kiersten and Phoenix trained with Jerri thru her VIP package. At first, Phoenix was struggling with reactivity and nail trims. An important goal for Kiersten was that she be able to handle Phoenix for basic care like nail trims. We started with a muzzle and slip lead. He flailed and freaked out. But each time, he got better. After a few weeks of daily practice, Phoenix no longer wears the muzzle and even offers his paw for nail trims. It's totally changed him for the better, Kiersten says!

Robert and Echo

Robert and Echo

I’ve been following Jerri for over 1.5yrs now on IG, after some Cam Hanes repost, but I never actually had a dog. Now I've had a rescue for one month! She’s a 7 month Shep/Husky mix (I’m told). She was very timid when I got her. All that is out the window now which makes me happy! She already got a lot of confidence. Things I want to achieve/struggling w/: nails, crate training, able to get her attention when it matters/recall (squirrels are a tease), and to understand her behavior in general.

Taylor, Christian, and Nala

Taylor, Christian, and Nala

We found TPA through TikTok and were so excited when we did! Currently, we are struggling with resource guarding and basic everyday manners. However, we love Jerri’s philosophy and are super eager to get to work! TPA: We are all rooting for the three of you! What a perfect family photo! ❤️

Tricia and Rudy

Tricia and Rudy

Tricia and Rudy just finished up with Zoe and Connor last month! They did a great job overcoming some excitement problems they both have. A big goal for Tricia was to be able to walk all 3 of her large dogs at the same time and I am happy to report that she has achieved her goal!!

Madeleine and Davie

Marissabel and Penny

Marissabel and Penny

I adopted Penny last October and there’s been good and bad moments. Penny has a reactivity toward dogs. Walking her can be a hard at times if there is a dog nearby. I want to do so much with her but first we need to start this training journey. I was lucky to have found Jerri’s tik tok account a couple months back and I loved the genuine and helpful content she posts. I am so excited to learn and help Penny reach many goals. UPDATE: Penny is now walking on a loose lead in busy areas!!

Rachel and Sullivan

Rachel and Sullivan

Rachel and Sullivan have just started a VIP session with Jerri. She says: "We are hoping to continue working with Sully to execute and follow his commands all the way through, stop resource guarding behavior, and promote pack unity nd proper heirarch between all three dogs." We wish you both luck and energy for all the hard work you're about to put in!!!

Taylor and Ruger

Taylor and Ruger

My name is Taylor and my dog's name is Ruger. I am struggling to help Ruger through his reactivity issues towards strangers and other animals. Ruger is also very afraid of car rides. He is very fearful in general. I have been following Jerri on TT for quite some time now. Her videos have been greatly helpful and I love the way she explains things. I’m very excited to get started with Tulsa Pack Athletics! Update: Ruger is finally riding in the car comfortably and he is loose lead walking!!

Chance and Rock

Chance and Rock

Originally I was drawn to Tulsa Pack Athletics thanks to Jerri’s sparkling & bubbly personality. As I observed more & more I felt like our philosophies regarding dogs were very similar. Why did I sign up for virtual training w/ Tulsa Pack Athletics? TPA cares. I’m Deaf. I had been searching for 3 months for a trainer that would work with me virtually. That’s not the easiest thing to do when I can’t hear other people talk. TPA made it happen immediately.

Mayda and Blue

Mayda and Blue

Blue is a one year old Newfie! We struggle w/ leash reactivity, recall, & general manners. I want to be able to take him places with me w/out worrying. I found TPA on tiktok. I saw how well trained Enzo was & showed it to my mom because my parents have a pitbull. Seeing how well trained Enzo was made me want that for my dog & I just didn’t know how to achieve it! UPDATE: May can study for school and play with her new kitten now while Blue remains calm and in place stay!! She's so happy!!

Lori and Hoosier

Lori and Hoosier

Congratulate Lori and Hoosier on completing a 2 week program with TPA!! They are learning how to overcome Hoosier's excited leash reactivity, gain more focus on mom, and create the foundations for continual success. We wish you both the best as you two start to move through training on your own. We are always here for you!

Kyanna and Lady

Kyanna and Lady

Kyanna and Lady will join us for the next month to work on manners, reactivity, and excitement. Welcome them the the TPA Family! Jerome will definitely help make some changes to benefit Lady. And Kyanna has already shown great initiative in learning how to overcome these behaviors. We believe in you!

Bowie and Madelyn

Bowie and Madelyn

Welcome Madelyn and Bowie to our 4 week program! Bowie struggles with excessive barking and we know he will be able to overcome this during the program. Good Luck Bowie and Madelyn

Skylar and Nezuko

Skylar and Nezuko

"For 7 long years I worked in corporate America & one day just had enough of it and quit. I decided to follow my dreams of working w/ animals. So w/ no idea how, no job, in the middle of a pandemic I started working on building my dog training skills using my Westie, Nezuko. That's when I found Jerri & her amazing videos on TikTok then followed her on Instagram. I reached out on IG one day to ask if she did mentorships & here I am today! I am so excited for opportunity to learn from her & grow"

Jessica and Max

Jessica and Max

"I was inspired by Jerri to start putting in more work w/ Max to help him reach his fullest potential. He was a very timid dog and I was looking for a way to build his confidence. Since then we’ve made great progress and Max is more confident by the day! I've started training a pup the complete opposite of Max and overly confident. I’m so excited to continue to learn about training & improve my skills. I’ve always been passionate about working w/ animals, especially dogs."

Bandit Verdugo with Mom and Dad

Bandit Verdugo with Mom and Dad

"We are really excited and nervous (but mainly excited) to start this journey with your team. Recently I have had anxiety taking Bandit outside because of his recent increase in reactivity towards people and other dogs when we go outside at our apartment complex. I am really looking forward to getting the help we need for us to be successful and get us on the right track. Thank you so much for taking us in." - We're happy to have you Kirstyn and Bandit. We will overcome these issues

Corey and Colt - New August Apprentice

Corey and Colt - New August Apprentice

"After I got Colt I couldn’t get a trainer due to funds & availability. I felt trapped. I found Jerri on my fyp & It’s like the universe knew I needed her. Since starting I know we will get through it! I've always known I want to work w/ dogs & I know the feeling of embarrassment & frustration that can come along with a dog in need of training, & I really just want to help other owners get through that and show them there is light at the end of the tunnel!"

Alison and Beau

Alison and Beau

"Bo is a 9 wk old GSD/Rottweiler mix puppy that I have been fostering with my 3-yo daughter for the last 3 weeks. We will be adopting him this weekend. I want to establish a good training foundation with him to set us up for raising a well-balanced dog" - and we're here for you Alison! So excited!

Kiersten Higgens and Phoenix

Kiersten Higgens and Phoenix

Welcome Kiersten and Phoenix for the next month! They will work one on one with Jerri in her VIP program. She is strugging with: "Counter surfing, mouthy at times with my other dog & me, difficulty cutting nails, and growls/snarls/lunges at my parents cats (they live next door)". - Lunging at cats is a big No no Phoenix. Excited to get to work Kiersten!

Hillary Gannon and Ellie

Hillary Gannon and Ellie

Welcome new comers for July!! Here's what Hillary has to say: This goober is Ellie. She is a 1 1/2 yo Goldendoodle. She is spunky and wicked smart, which definitely keeps me on my toes. She loves learning new tricks and skills. The problem is recall, leash walking, and me. I'm hoping through these classes I can learn how to best help Ellie thrive and be more a part of my life. Plus, I want to take this spitfire on adventures!!

Emily and Knox

Emily and Knox

Emily and Knox spent the month of July virtually training with us. Wish them the best of luck ❤️. What a ray of sunshine Knox is!

Kennedy and Kobe

Kennedy and Kobe

These two just began a 4-Week program with us starting Mid June. Kobe is nervous around some new people in the home and new things. He hackles up and does little barks. I had an incident when he was about 9 months and he bit a cleaning lady that left the door open. He is better now. I just don’t know how to make him not scared. We're ready to help Kennedy; let's get to work -TPA

Kaity & Winston

Kaity & Winston

Katy and Winston are finishing up a 4 Week session with us this June!! Here's an oldie, but a goodie from them. Kaity and Winston out on a hike!

Jheri and Miles - June Apprentice

Jheri and Miles - June Apprentice

Miles and I have been through A LOT together. He attacked another dog and severely hurt them so I realized something needed to change...Big time. Somehow Jerri's videos started popping up on my TikTok FYP and I began to hone in on the skills I needed to teach Miles to thrive. I began to see results. It lit a new fire for me. I found a new passion in helping save dogs like Miles through training and helping families regain hope & empowerment in their ownership. I am so excited for this journey

Devyn & Hermes - June Apprentice

Devyn & Hermes - June Apprentice

I have always been interested in learning about dogs behavior & why they do the things they do. I am a recovering addict & I wasted a lot of my life stuck in a cycle that made me miserable, even in recovery. Last year when the pandemic hit I also gave birth to my first child. That’s when I decided it was time to make a big change in my life. I tried grooming and being my own boss, but it wasn't something I was passionate about. So then I reached out to Jerri and here we are!

Mariah with Emma and Jax - June Apprentice and New Mentor

Mariah with Emma and Jax - June Apprentice and New Mentor

I have been a huge fan of Jerri's TikTok for the past year. I have always wanted to work with dogs but never knew exactly what I wanted to do until I came across these TikToks & started working w/ my own dogs! I personally like to learn virtually because life does not always go as planned. My husband is in the Air force so we don’t ever know if we will be relocating randomly so it’s a great opportunity to get the knowledge I need to progress. I enjoy walking my dogs now!
