After teaching for 12 years in the Clark County (Las Vegas) public school system, Jeanette Forrey drew on that experience to develop a Breeder Mentorship Program that has expanded to books, classes, and software in addition to in-person mentoring and teaching. She has been featured many times in local and national media, including Good Morning America, and is relentlessly focused on promoting ethical, dog-centered breeding practices and educating the public to defund puppy mills and ill-intentioned backyard breeders. Committed to elevating the breeding business and taking thousands of breeders on the journey with her, she truly believes in healing hearts and changing lives through the power of a dog.
Jeanette founded 4E Kennels in 2011. She is an AKC CGC evaluator, a dog trainer, a puppy aptitude test evaluator, and holds a B.A. in Secondary English Education and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have loved every minute of learning how puppies develop, creating and implementing strategies to promote service dog quality puppies, and creating curricula based on those sensitive developmental needs.
Jeanette’s puppies are well-rounded, stable, reliable, and full of love to share. Her dogs and puppies are raised in a state-of-the-art nursery including cameras, individual whelping stalls, and a full-time staff. Her pups learn early the importance of a positive human relationship. They’re challenged and worked daily to create intelligent, balanced pups that display good nerve strength and learn cause and effect, problem-solving skills, and a positive association to learning and training.
A few years ago, Getzy came into my life and he changed the way I view dogs. His intelligence and spirit inspired me to have Getzy complete the Delta Society Pet Partner training so he and I would be able to visit those in need. Getzy accompanied me into the classroom and helped me pilot a ‘Reading With Dogs’ program in my 8th-grade classroom. It was a highlight of my 12-year teaching career! I found that there is a great need to breed and provide puppies that have been developed with the best care, socialization, health, and love. I researched dog breeds extensively, trying to find the “best” all-around dog. I felt the Goldendoodle met my standards with ease.
All of Jeanette’s puppies are treated and raised as though they will become service dogs. Through selective lineage, she has specifically bred puppies to have the right temperament, intelligence, and aptitude for service work. 4E has produced hundreds of service dogs and countless therapy and facility dogs. Jeanette is disrupting the business of dog breeding, performing careful puppy evaluations to ensure clients get the puppy they need. The team at 4e believes wholeheartedly in the power of a dog and the innate ability dogs have to heal hearts and save lives.
Through Badass Breeders, Jeanette follows her community of breeders around the world. In the Facebook group, breeders share, offer advice, laugh, and cry together. She’d love to welcome you to this supportive group.
