About Our Founder

Maya Jedlicka is the founder of Cosmic Canine. Her passion for dogs and training led to Cosmic Canine opening its doors in 2017 with the mission of helping to improve quality of life for dogs and their owners.

Maya started working with animals in her first job as a vet tech over 30 years ago. In 2005, she began her formal training education with Tyler Obedience Training Club, training her own dogs and assisting with class instruction. Over the following years, Maya has continued to pursue her education in dog training through seminars, continuing education, and testing her skills in competition. Maya actively trains and competes in the sport of Schutzhund (IGP).

In addition to her interest in dog training, Maya received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Spanish, cum laude, from the University Texas in Arlington, and her Juris Doctor degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

Our Team

Our trainers have a passion for working with dogs and a genuine desire to help the dogs and their owners succeed. We provide ongoing continuing education to our trainers to make sure they continue to sharpen their skills and never stop learning.

Cosmic Canine is also certified with the Department of Labor to provide a two-year apprenticeship program for up-and-coming trainers. At Cosmic Canine, we differ from other trainers and training businesses not only in our mission, but in our methods. What many people do not know is that dog training is both a skill and an art that, done properly, takes many years of study, practice, and dedication. It is a passion, not a job.

Few trainers have spent adequate time honing their skills, studying theory, methods, and techniques, or even testing their skills with their own dogs. At Cosmic Canine, we have senior trainers with decades of experience training, overseeing, and mentoring younger apprentices coming up through the ranks. They work closely together as a team to make sure you and your dog get the best possible education.
