Jeannie Gee and her Amazing GeeGee Dogs

Jeannie's story...

At nearly 30, Jeannie has a range of qualifications and experience under her belt. A Bachelor of Education specialising in Foundation Stage AND ICT in Teaching, managing her own team in 'Commissions' (Pensions & Insurance) and finally 'Estimating' (number crunching and formulas) in Underfloor Heating has all lead to a strong understanding of approaching challenges at as many different angles as possible.

How Jeannie's journey in obedience, flyball and agility began…

Always crazy about animals, especially dogs, Jeannie grew up spending most weekends and holidays around her grandparents’ large groups of Working Labradors, Irish Water Spaniels and Springers. At a young age, she was discouraged from pursuing dog training as a career, because there was "little money in it, and no security". 

However, Jeannie did get her first dog whilst still at school, a strong but complex rescue terrier who taught Jeannie that positive reinforcement was magical. From then, she went on to trick training, obedience, flyball and agility, learning as much as she could from the dogs she encountered until 5 years ago she finally bit the bullet to become a self-employed dog trainer.

Success followed successs...

Well, that was the plan. Two and a half years ago, Jeannie was approached for a photoshoot with two of her dogs who wowed the photographer so much that she spoke to Charlotte, a friend of hers in the media.  The rest they say, is history.

Jeannie’s first proper media job was a long, complicated day, with her dog, Kheva, working alongside a cat she had never met. Charlotte was so impressed that now, over the past two years of working together, they have completed almost 100 projects together - working dogs, cats, chickens, parrots... basically, any animal they can source.

Jeannie's training experience...

It is a complex job, with not every dog or owner being suitable. Jeannie prides herself in being a positive only trainer and handler, even when the pressure is on, using creativity to get the job done. Her experience ranges from Christmas Dog Movies, to Food Packets, Music Videos and Hollywood movies (not released yet !). Check out just a few examples of their projects:

  • Arlas "Boot Camp Doggy"
  • PDSA "Regular Donation Ad"
  • Tom Chaplin’s "Midnight Mass" (get the tissues)
  • M&S Christmas 2017 ad
  • Tescos Christmas 2017 Ad "Snooze"
  • More Than "Bark in the Park
  • More Than "Doggyssentials"
  • Secret Life of Dogs Series 2
  • Christmas 24's "Merry Woofmas"

Aside from TV work and training dogs, Jeannie competes and trains in agility, conformation, and obedience.

Successes...

In 2018 , Jeannie and her dogs have won:

  • Best of Breed, Best Bitch (x3) and Best Puppy in Breed (x5)
  • At Three Counties, they achieved Pastoral Puppy Group Three! 
  • Special PreBeginners (obedience) Grand Final at Crufts, and winning out of PreBeginners at a subsequent show
  • In June 2018 they had their first agility win, taking them into Grade 2

Customers' Views

Emma Sunderland (and Kes and Pep)

You may remember earlier this year you provided me with some advice regarding my agility dog. I asked about adding that little bit of extra stamina and you advised adding some CP Xtra. I have been trying this over the months since and I do feel it has made an improvement. I wouldn't say it is a dramatic change but I feel happier knowing I am giving him that bit more energy.

We have also changed one of our working collies on the farm onto CP24 and Xtra. He is the litter brother to my collie and we felt he was needing more energy and stamina for working. He has never been a speedy eater, he used to graze when he felt like eating. However, since changing to CSJ he has dramatically changed his appetite - he now sits and waits for his food and eats it all in one go rather than grazing. We feel he has better stamina and keeps his weight up better (he used to yo-yo a lot and go quite thin at times on other food).

So basically, an all-round thumbs-up for CSJ!! The dogs obviously like it and I feel better knowing I am giving a good quality food with good meat content and no crappy ingredients!!
