“Go Beyond Dog Training & Learn to Communicate”
“Dana trained my daughter’s Service Dog and she gave/donated my ESP to me. Teddy is super smart and has bonded with Hannah; it’s a beautiful sight. I am very relieved! Teddy has been consistently alerting to lows and highs. He woke her up the other night and if she would have waited another 5 min. she would have had a seizure. Teddy is a lifesaver and one day my ESP will be a Service Dog!” – Christine Hyatt
”Camp Lejeune NC, While there I made friends with Dana Ortiz, a local PTSD service dog trainer. I found myself spending all of my free time helping care for and train dogs with Dana. My love for dogs grew into a passion for understanding the canine mind. After leaving Camp Lejeune, I decided it was time to live my dream and start a dog training business in my favorite city, Knoxville, TN. I started My Curious Canine with the determination to educate, inform, and help my community to understand the dog mind better, in hopes that one day all dogs will live a balanced, happy life.” – Hanna
“Harley is now my son’s companion and was Julian’s Service Dog before his passing. Harley is an amazingly trained service dog; trained and donated with lots of love by Dana Ortiz. Harley loves PJ and because of that love, Harley will do anything in his training to keep my son safe.” – Gretchen Hammond
“The difference Harley has made for PJ cannot be overstated. We all thank you every day!” – Tere
“I used to think I was good at training my dog because I could stack his favorite treat all over him and the house and he wouldn’t move until I said it was ok. That was until I meet Dana and One Smart Pooch. Dana and her canines taught me how to actually communicate with my pup. Instead of me telling him what to do all the time (sometimes getting results, sometimes needing more patience!) I learned how to read my pups body language, in a sense kind of like reading his mind. Knowing what he was thinking helped me to stop a whole bunch of bad behaviors that I used to tell myself was just “normal dog” behavior. No more chewed Jordan’s or phone chargers, my pup is fully capable of awareness, he knows what his toys are and what his bones are, no more random holes in the yard because I learned how to properly communicate with MY smart pooch! Even if you feel like you don’t need any help at all, maybe reading one of Dana’s books or brochures might open your mind to the endless possibilities of communication!! #sixstarbusiness” – Josh

“The idea of having to give up my personal pet Maya in order to get the Service Dog the doctors say I needed was not an option. Thank you, Jessie Devi for taking on the monumental task of training Maya to standard for the certification of being MY Service Dog… I couldn’t be happier with the choice to keep her and the commitment you made to train her!” – Louis Trent Brown III
“Chance is Amazing, He is so Well Behaved. When he is Outside, He ignores the other dogs and they are the ones barking and running around while he’s Calm and Staying side by side with his Master. Once we get ourselves a Puppy, “One Smart Pooch,” is Training my Pup!” – Kari
“While watching any animals Jessie always provides a safe and healthy environment. Dogs are walked regularly and training games are used to keep dogs entertained and simulated. Animals in Jessie’s care are always well feed, loved on plenty and happy to be around her.” – Whitney T.
“I work 12 hour shifts on an unstable schedule, usually 7 days a weeks. Jessie has helped me with many of my animals, but she has taught my cat to use the toilet instead of a litter box, my dog is happier, calmer, more focused on me for directions. I’ve learned a lot from Jessie’s directions and teachings, such a blessing to have met her!!” Joshua D.
