Premier Trainer / St. Petersburg, FL


Jillian Usher was born and raised in Toledo, OH but she currently resides in St. Petersburg, FL. Since she was young, she always wanted to work with dogs. Her family would call her Dr. Dolittle because she was always sneaking dogs in the house and attempting to keep them. Jillian always had a passion for saving dogs but couldn’t figure out the best way to go about doing it. Due to her love for dogs and other animals, she always pursued careers in the pet industry. Over the past 8 years she worked in and managed several pet daycares and boarding facilities. She also has her certification in pet CPR and safety.

While working at a doggy daycare, Jillian attended a Lunch and Learn hosted by a team of professional dog trainers. During the presentation, she learned that the trainers with the company not only trained dogs, but also worked closely with rescues and shelters. This was perfect for Jillian! She decided on that day that she wanted to pursue a career as a professional dog trainer.

Jillian’s goal is to help families and their dogs to happily co-exist. She also has a personal goal of purchasing a sailboat and learning to sail. She absolutely loves the ocean!

Whenever Jillian is not training dogs or helping people, she enjoys hiking, rollerblading, kayaking, and traveling.
