Owner // Trainer

I founded Follow Me K9 Training in 2017, and since then it has developed a great reputation in the Omaha area’s animal-owner community. 

Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe my style. I know each animal is different, and I’ll work with yours to give them guidance that is tailored to their needs.

I have been training dogs since I was a little girl. I have always had an instinct for it. My first job out of college was with a major pet retail store as a trainer. But I soon found "Pure Positive" training was lacking something. After adopting my first dog, Jasper, he had some behaviors that could not be fixed with treats. After searching, I discovered other ways to train dogs! These methods (centering around establishing communication and building relationships,) saved Jasper's life and launched my career as an independent dog trainer.  

I own two dogs, Jasper, a 7 year old Mini Aussie and Aria, a 4 year old mostly deaf Australian Shepherd Blue Heeler mix. These two are a vital part of Follow Me K9. They help me train and rehabilitate dogs and they absolutely love their job!

In 2019, Johanna joined the IACP

Follow Me K9 is proud to have been voted the Sarpy County People's Choice for Pet Trainer 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020!
