Jacob has served a term on the National Search Dog Alliance board, representing the Eastern Seaboard in the development of national certification for search and rescue dogs and has certified dogs in accordance with not only their standards but as well as the National Narcotics Detector Dog Association. He is a former member of the Eastern States Working Dog Association as well as the National Association of Professional Canine Handlers and is a current member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Jacob attended the US K-9 Academy in Miami, FL where he completed his instructor’s certification for dog training with specialties in detector dog work. While in Miami he assisted Miami Dade County, US Marshalls, DEA and City of Miami in training explosives detection and narcotics detection canines. While in his early years he devoted most of his time to working dogs, his love for companion animals never wavered. Jacob spent 16 years working in the animal health field helping ensure pet parents a long healthy happy life with their four legged family members. While in college, Jacob would teach weekend obedience sessions in group fashion and the community’s response grew year over year. He became known as “the dog guy” and a day did not go by that someone wasn’t calling or questioning issues they were having with their pet. He knew that the area needed something different to allow people the option to have more control of their pet and group sessions weren’t the answer. In 2007 he built a small inboard facility and began taking pets in for training. The response was huge and since that date Altamaha Canine Consulting LLC has gone through approximately four renovations to accommodate more dogs. In the winter of 2018, the economy had an up turn and more people than ever were reaching for ACC’s services. Jacob knew it was time to bring on an additional trainer and more services. The area was asking for a splash pool and with 40 acres attached to the kennel, he said “WHY NOT!!!”. In July of 2020 Jacob took over ownership of The Pack Canine Studio on St Simons Island to expand into boarding, grooming and day care needs as well as to develop companion animal programs for the people and pets of SSI. Jacob attributes his success to the growing need for society to respectfully interact with mans best friend. He has received accomplishments from MOFA Global in canine reproduction, Certified Veterinary Assistant Licensed through the Georgia Veterinary Medical Association, licensed field judge for the Hunting Retriever Club of America as well as Presidents Volunteer Service Award for time efforts dedicated to service dogs. He has served as president of the Coastal Empire Hunting Retriever Club based out of Savannah Georgia, is the Founder of the Altamaha Retriever Club Inc. and the President for Ducks Unlimited’ s Altamaha Chapter. He has devoted every aspect of his life to dogs and the way they interact with humans. His goals are to continue to grow, learn and ensure everything done is to strengthen the human and animal bond.
