Introduction: I have been a dog trainer since 2012! It seems like yesterday, but it also seems so long ago. I have been working in the house pet industry since 2015. I started with working dogs but found my passion to be helping families learn to communicate with the dog they own. I love helping the crazy pants dog learn calm and the shy hiding behind the sofa puppy find its bravery. We offer basic obedience as well as perception modification using TBTE methods. If your interested in learning what that’s about, message me or check out Training Between The Ears.

I've been working with Terra since the fall of 2021 and have been watching her work for over a year prior to my apprenticeship. As my mentor, I have nothing but the utmost respect for her drive to help address not just behavior, but the root causes of behavior issues in dogs using the most efficient, fear free methods. Truly, the Wholistic Canine training experience is forward thinking, fun, and always focusing on what is best for the dogs while staying within the owner's capabilities. Beyond the behavior aspect, classes are always tailor-made to what clients need, which you don't see often in other training programs! I'm honored and delighted to be a part of Wholistic Canine.

Also posted on google reviews: Terra has helped our family tremendously! Being a busy mom with young kids at the time, Terra helped us navigate adding a puppy to our family. It’s been 3 years and we continue to stay in touch! I trust her completely and her guidance throughout the years has been invaluable. It’s apparent she loves what she does and it shows in her work. We are thankful our paths crossed as she’s an amazing dog trainer!

Terra and Michelle have been working with me for years! I found them from Animal Minds. Best experience I’ve had with trainers by far. Excellent team - couldn’t recommend them enough.
