Introduction: I am a professional dog trainer with over 35 years of experience working with dogs of all levels, including rescue dogs, and dogs with behavioral and aggression issues. I have attended a formal training program and my training utilizes positive reinforcement techniques in a natural way. Training consists of private lessons, group classes, and a board and train program. Please Note: Board and Train programs are priced according to the needs of the dog, and the level of training to be accomplished. The board and train program consist of 2 weeks board/training and a private lesson with the owner once the dog is fully trained. This may be modified depending upon the needs of the dog/owner. My business also consists of dog walking, and pet sitting. I am available on short notice, pricing is dependent upon the service rendered. My prices are reasonable and I can create a package to accommodate your pet(s) needs. References are available upon request. I am ok h I a Pet First Aid/CPR Instructor, certifying pet owners, and all animal care facilities including animal hospitals, groomers and training facilities.

Michelle and her training methods were amazing! Me and my wife were very stressed about having our dog trained, after having another dog trainer meet our dog, and tell us it would take him almost 40 one hour sessions for him to train our dog, that would of cost us thousands of dollars. I found Michelle online, called her, and what she described for her training was exactly what I was looking for. She came out to my house, showed me and my wife what to do with our dog, and within a half hour we could tell a difference in our dog, Michelle was amazing! Michelle followed up with us days after our session, to ask how everything was going, and let us know we could reach out to her anytime with any questions we had. I would highly recommend Michelle for training your dog, you can tell she loves and cares for dogs, and is an excellent trainer.

Michelle was absolutely awesome! We rescued a pitty mix from a TX shelter and she came to help us with her aggressive behavior towards our other dogs. It was great working with Michelle from the first time I talked to her. She’s clearly very knowledgeable and passionate when it comes to dogs and training. She was very communicative, courteous, thoughtful, and really took the time to make sure we were comfortable with the things she was suggesting before she left. She gave us tons of other great insight and advice on different things we were encountering with our other dogs too. We noticed a huge difference in our dogs behavior in just a few hours, and I’m confident with consistency things will continue to improve. Michelle offered to come back to check in on how things are going whenever necessary. She also gave us such great tools to use for the things we’re working on as well. We (us and our pups!) had such a great experience with Michelle and would highly recommend!!

Michelle was quick in responding to us. She was informative right off the bat with talking to us on the phone! When she came to our house to teach us how to train our 7 month old Pit mix she was GREAT very knowledgable. She did not just come to our house for a certain time frame she came for the amount of time it took to teach us and see a difference in our dog!! The next day it was like we had a totally different dog!! That was amazing!! She also checked in with us a week later to see how things were going!! Told us we can call her at any time if we need more help!! I definitely would reccomend her services!!!

Michele was incredible to work with. She was able to help us gain insight into the specific reasons our dogs were eager to get at our cats and gave us several tools to help prevent it. I noticed a significant change in our dogs’ overall behavior within 20 minutes with her guidance. It was truly amazing and inspirational to learn from Michele that very subtle changes in our commands and control of a leash could dramatically change the environment around our animals. I look forward to having our cats back among them family by using her guidance and lessons. I recommend Michele to anyone who has any concerns or desire to train their animal(s).
