  • Jeremy Reed

    CDPT-VSA Certified Trainer

    Jeremy was born and raised right here in Southern California. When it comes to animals, everything from furry to scaled, he’s always had a love for them and calls himself a “geek” when it comes to this topic. Ever since he was a kid, it has been a long-time goal of his to be a dog trainer, and he is over the top ecstatic to be doing it now.

    His background in the kennel environment comes from being at a dog daycare and training facility. Although he was knowledgeable about dog behavior prior to this, it was in these environments where his knowledge was tested and expanded upon tremendously. Being able to work every day with dogs in a large group and with dogs who weren’t social or deemed “aggressive”, expedited the learning process. He’s grateful for that experience and he’s also extremely grateful to be here at MSRPAC. Always aiming to help and to learn, he sees it valuable to not just teach dogs and their people but, to always be a student as well. Jeremy has been a trainer with MSRPAC since 2022. He is a CDPT-VSA trainer and is working toward becoming a certified dog behaviorist.
