Jordan Wells - Owner and Trainer


Jordan started his passion in 2010 hunting and competing with German shorthaired Pointers in hunt tests and horseback field trials. In 2013 Jordan graduated the University of Connecticut with a Bachelors in Turfgrass and Soil Science from the College of Agriculture. After graduation Jordan still couldn't stop thinking about training dogs so he took a chance in 2014 beginning his career as a professional trainer to the public at Quinebaug Kennels. Moving to lead trainer there in just a couple years he knew he wanted the next level.

The dog industry led him to attend Rick Smith seminars in addition to extensive mentorship with Sonny Piekarz at Hay Creek Kennel. After working with Rick Smith and Sonny Piekarz, he knew he was being mentored by the best in the business and wanted to train and handle dogs at that level. 

After years of mentorship and training dogs professionally, Jordan developed his own training programs inspired by Sonny Piekarz and the Huntsmith Method that is at the highest measure of detail. Jordan’s passion drives him each day to evolve the training format on how dogs and humans interact. From obedience training to upland bird dogs, he does his best to train each dog to their fullest potential while they are with him. His strongest compliment is the ability to teach the owner as well as the dog.

He owns and operates J. Wells Kennels in Woodstock Valley, Connecticut.

Jordan's ability to read a dog is unmatched...



There are many good ones...but few great ones.

Jordan Wells has been blessed to work with some of the great ones. Sonny Piekarz and Rick Smith have mentored Jordan to think, act, and train like a true professional. They set the bar high for him and their standard drives Jordan every day to be the best he can be.

"Who is Jordan Wells? He is hands down the absolute best dog man I have ever met. Our relationship started with me mentoring him and now I find myself glued to his back pocket and listening to his every word. He has been a major source to help keep me sharp and striving to be the absolute best dog trainer I can be.  Jordan is, “The definition of detail”. You can’t find one more humble, forthcoming or helpful. I value his friendship more than words can express."
