About Me

Jessica Jagenteufel


My name is Jessica Jagenteufel and I live in Worms, Germany with my rescue dog Scylla.
In my teenage years, I already loved watching Victoria Stilwell’s show “It’s me or the dog“. She is the reason why I wanted to become a dog trainer myself one day.

When I heard about the founding of the Victoria Stilwell Academy in the U.S., I decided to finally make my dream come true: I took time off from my job as an elementary school teacher to follow my calling. Now I am a “VSA-CDT” (Victoria Stilwell Academy – Certified Dog Trainer) myself and founder of “Dogtastic – Positive Dog Training”.

Since my own dog suffered from separation anxiety, I decided to take another step in my career as a dog trainer. I completed my training as a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer with Malena DeMartini. As the first and to this date only so-called “CSAT” (Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer) in Germany, I specialize in helping dogs and their guardians to overcome separation related problems that are so stressful for both the human and the dog.
