Jean Manino is ranked among the very best in the field of dog training. An accomplished 37 year veteran Obedience trainer, Ms. Manino, has dedicated her professional career to understanding and working with dogs.
Prior to turning professional in 1979, the naturally gifted Manino studied under the tutelage of a world renown US Army Canine Master Trainer. Years of advanced obedience training combined with decades of upper level competition have fine tuned her program into the degree of excellence seen today. She is also a University of New Orleansundergraduate majoring in Communications.

One of the many trophies won in Obedience Trial competition.
This now nationally recognized and acclaimed Obedience Instructor has been actively competing in Obedience Trails for over 30 years. She has obtained every title offered by the AKC (American Kennel Club).
As a serious competitor, Ms. Manino has secured a place in the Obedience Hall of Fame with her exceptional talent, and ability to get the best out of the dogs she trains.
Jean Manino of JCM's is one of the very few Obedience Instructors still actively participating in Obedience competition. She holds multiple High in Trail awards, Dog World Awards, and Obedience Trial Championships. She is also the proud owner of two Conformation Champions.
Ms. Manino not only competes with her own dogs, but has titled many of her client's dogs. No matter what the breed, she has never placed out of the top 4.

Many students from her basic (beginner) class have continued through the advanced program. These students have competed very successfully, rarely placing out of the top four in all three levels of competition. However, your dog doesn't have to be a "show dog" to be well mannered, well adjusted, and a real part of your family and your life.
Ms. Manino has taken part in a great variety of dog-related activities. As a behavioral specialist she has been asked to give expert testimony in dog bite cases. She has conducted seminars, judged numerous AKC sanctioned obedience matches, and has volunteered three years of her time as the instructor of the SPCA's Care Cadet program.
