What is BAXTER & Bella's Online Puppy School and why do we choose to highly recommend it?

As a breeder, we naturally want the very best for our puppies and the families they ultimately join. We recognize and appreciate the excitement of bringing home a new canine companion, as well as the importance of supporting all of our new puppy parents along their raising and rearing journey. What's more, we realize there will be questions along the way of how to most effectively communicate with and efficiently train your new dog. With these needs in mind, we want all of our puppy owners to have full access to the very best resources available today, complimented by what we have learned are like-minded animal owners, who also understand how to successfully train a well-behaved family pet. BAXTER & Bella is an online dog training company, located in the mountains of Northern Utah, owned and operated by Scott & Amy Jensen, who are not only puppy parents, dedicated dog trainers and service-oriented professionals, but some of the most canine committed people we have ever met. In fact, they have invested years into the creation of their online training program, going from individually training one dog at a time, to working with groups of puppy parents, to designing and developing a workbook of lesson plans and evolving little-by-little toward now owning and operating what appears to be the most comprehensive online dog training resource we have discovered. And maybe best of all, they do it as a labor of love, dedicated to doing whatever they can to help pet families everywhere successfully train their own dogs in order to keep more in loving homes where they belong!


Moreover, they view their role in the pet parenting world as an ideal and seamless intermediary as puppies transition out of the homes of reputable breeders and into the homes of loving families. As such, they are perfectly positioned to help new families properly prepare for the exciting arrival of their new canine companions, in addition to answering and addressing all of the common questions and concerns that seemingly come along with owning a new puppy. In fact, simply stated, the amount of resources found inside their MEMBERS ONLY area is incredible and provides pet parents with all the help they could ever need, again from even before your puppy comes home and onward through the life of your maturing dog. Additionally, seeing how the entire program is located online, the beauties of technology provide 24/7 access to each of the training materials, including, but certainly not limited to their signature PUPPY PREP training lessons, their imbedded how-to videos, their FAQs, their unlimited LIVE! Office Hours with Amy and Canine Coaching, as well as much, much more!


In short, by partnering with them, we have made the active decision to do what we can for all of our pet families by proactively recommending each and every one of our puppies be enrolled with the BAXTER & Bella online puppy school. It's never too early to start and partnering with the best has already proven to be a HUGE head start for many of our new pet parents, leading toward animal owners and canine companions that are actively engaged on the pathway towards "Becoming best friends through love and learning!"










In fact, don't just take our word for it, listed below are a few reviews from current members...

"I LOVE this website! It has made training so doable - I never would have been able to get this puppy and keep my sanity without the detailed program you provide. The videos are amazing and make it so easy. I will be recommending this website to anyone I know who is getting a dog!"   ~Alexa

"At first we were most excited about the low price! Nobody could beat it. So, we took a chance. Then the amount of content was unbelievable. So many great recommendations on which products to buy. I dove right in and made sure I followed every video to the best of my ability. She even has charts that I was able to track his behaviors."   ~Ryan

"I cannot say enough good about this program! I am a first time dog owner and had no idea where to begin. This program gave me the direction I needed. We have used the program for four months and our puppy is now six months old. I am frequently getting compliments from family, friends, pet care professionals, and strangers about how well behaved our dog is for being a puppy."   ~Amy

"I highly recommend this training program! I love the practical tips and the ‘learn at your pace’ format. The combination of written information and videos is really nice. I also had a specific problem with my puppy with the training and contacted Amy. She was quick to respond with a thorough, personalized response. Love it!"   ~Angela

"I highly recommend Baxter & Bella to every dog owner! I am a first time dog owner, but the resources are excellent for any dog owner at any age. When we got our Cavapoo puppy we decided to enroll at the local pet store for training classes. The classes were good, but Baxter & Bella has been so much better!! The curriculum is both more in-depth and broad. We also considered hiring a personal dog trainer, but Baxter & Bella is much more affordable, long-term, and based on my schedule. I love the videos because I can watch them over again by myself or with my children. You can’t do that at the pet store. The LIVE! Office hours were amazing! I asked all my individualized questions and received answers and encouragement I needed, including links to her videos. The range of services available is excellent, for times when I want to go in-depth or when I need a quick answer using the Search feature. I feel 100% supported in training my puppy now and for years to come. I do not think I could receive better service anywhere else. Thank you!"   ~Melanie

Professional Educator

I received my professional degree from Utah State University in Mathematics Education and enjoyed the privilege of serving as a full-time teacher for multiple years. Throughout my experience in various capacities, and in working with kids from many diverse backgrounds, I learned how much I truly love helping others realize their full potential no matter the subject material. Teaching has been an amazing opportunity for me to observe that moment when the light turns on for an individual learner and they begin to better understand how to properly connect concepts for optimal outcomes. 


Professional Trainer

Now as a professional trainer, working with dogs has always been a dream of mine and I am blessed to be able to strategically combine this lifelong passion with my background in both education and curriculum development in order to effectively teach and efficiently train inside the dog world. I have an enthusiasm for working with others, a sincere commitment to excellence and I know first hand the key to successfully impacting the statistics on the number of pets that ultimately remain in loving homes where they belong hinges upon the community of many professionals who work to properly help coach animal owners everywhere how to connect, learn and teach others to live with their animals.


After turning my interest into a profession, families started contacting me to train their dogs for them, which set me on an ongoing adventure of seeking education and professional development in the dog training world. As I enjoyed the books, the classes, the mentors and of course, the teaching and the training time with the animals, I absolutely loved the learning and the implementing of it all by helping others. Through it all, I considered how I could have an even bigger influence for good and wanted to be able to send home resources and materials with every trained dog I worked with in order for the family to continue the training that had been taught and understand more completely the education their puppy received while in my care. I subsequently created the BAXTER & Bella company with hopes of sharing my training knowledge with as many new puppy parents as possible. Today, with a business that is growing and a commitment to continue forward, I am dedicated to providing the most current, up-to-date and impactful resources, tips, tricks, tools and techniques that are as much about teaching family pets how to appropriately act, as they are about coaching pet parents how to effectively train. In fact, here at BAXTER & Bella it's part of our DNA and will always be be who we are... successfully building positive and respective relationships with our animals as we continue to work toward becoming best friends through love and learning!


I have years of experience in the animal training world. In addition to currently training puppies for everyday family life, educating individuals through the use of my online puppy school and working one-on-one with clients in their homes, I have completed a semester of study in Animal Science at Utah State University, spent nine months training puppies at Puppy Steps Training in Northern Utah, apprentice trained for 18 months at Good Dog! Autism Companions and am now a professional service dog trainer for their organization. I have learned so many things through these experiences and love sharing my knowledge with others in ways that will help those around me better puppy parent. I am also an AKC CGC Evaluator, professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), committed to using science-based, positive and force-free training methods. I train without the use of force, pain, fear, or intimidation.

In addition to the things listed above, I strongly believe in life-long learning and am currently enrolled in a Masters training program to enhance methods, improve materials and build better relationships throughout the future!

Wife & Mother

Along with being a math educator and puppy trainer, I am very blessed with the title of wife and mother. I am an enthusiastic stay-at-home mom who chooses to spend a portion of my time volunteering in classrooms for my three children, working with puppies, as well as creating educational materials for the everyday puppy owner. My dream is simple - I hope through teaching you how to pick a puppy, in addition to training the basic household manners, instilling the necessary obedience commands and introducing proper socialization skills I will be able to positively impact the number of dogs who will remain living in homes with their families where they belong.
