I'm Yana Jacobson,
your neighborhood dog trainer 
and owner of Smylish Dogs

I've been working with dogs since 2014 and founded Smylish Dogs in January 2019.  Smylish Dogs offers a variety of cervices such as Dog Training, Board and Train, Dog Boarding, Dog Walking and Pet Check-In Visits in Brooklyn.


I practice science-based, positive training and teach you how to communicate with your dog without physical corrections of any kind like pinning, poking, grabbing or hitting. I do NOT use choke collars, pronged/spike collars or electric collars.

Ivan is a valuable member of our team - he works under my supervision and offers dog walking and pet check-in services as well as helps with regular boardings. We love working with Ivan since he is very reliable and dedicated to the process.

Over the years, we were able to collect experiences domestically and internationally and worked with many different dog breeds. Whether they are big or small, young or old, funny or grumpy, active or laid back, we always enjoy our time together. Your pet’s safety and happiness are our priority!
