In 2000 The Shryock family adopted their first German Shepherd Rescue dog.  Subsequently Jennifer became involved with the rescue organization as a counselor and trainer finding herself supporting families with babies or young children who, overwhelmed by the challenges of their situation, were often on the verge of surrendering an otherwise beloved dog. As a Mother, dog behavior consultant and teacher…Jennifer recognized a need for support and education for these families and began building resources for new and expecting families through her own business Family Paws.  A consistent need for this specialized service led to the creation of the highly endorsed international program Dogs & Storks® for expecting and adopting families and then years later Dogs & Toddlers™, for families with babies 3 months of age and up.  All of these passions and ideas have led to the creation of Family Paws™ Parent Education now offering programs all of the United States, Canada and beyond!  Jennifer has mentored and supported hundreds of dog trainers all over the world and continues to support families in her community and beyond.

Jennifer lives in Cary, North Carolina, with her husband, 4 children, 2 dogs, and 4 cats.
