I am Jenny Nunn Brawley, owner of Nunn Better Dogs.  I have been involved in training dogs and their people since 2002.  I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA), a Pat Miller Certified Trainer 2 (PMCT2) and an Elite Fear Free Professional.  I graduated from the SF SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers’ Certificate of Counseling course in 2002.  I am also a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and Professional Pet Guild (PPG), both of which advocate positive reinforcement and fear free training.  I am also an AKC Canine Good Citizen, STAR Puppy and Tricks evaluator. I have also volunteered countless hours at a local dog rescue organization.

I am currently offering private, in-home / outdoor training for puppies and adult dogs.   I am fully vaccinated for COVID and follow all state / local COVID protocols and guidance.  I specialize in “puppy survival,” basic manners, tricks, sports foundation, cooperative care and behavior modification.  Whether you want a hiking partner, a pup with good manners in urban settings, a sport competitor, or a well-adjusted family member, I can create a customized curriculum for you.  At this time, I do not handle aggression or separation anxiety cases.

 I live in the Vienna/Reston, VA area with 2 adult rescue dogs, my border collie pandemic puppy and husband.  My dogs and I have competed in Rally, FAST Cat, freestyle dancing, disc and barn hunt.  The puppy is currently training for agility.

My interest in dog training and dog competition led me to photography.  Over the years, while training many dogs and competing against many teams, I have learned to identify and appreciate a dog's true personality and the unique bond between dog and owner.  Why not capture that personality and bond for others in photographs; whether it's gazing into each other's eyes, executing a perfect freestyle routine, or playing tug?
