Introduction: I have experience working with a variety of breeds and dogs ranging from puppies to older dogs. My preferred training method is LIMA (least invasive minimally aversive) meaning correction and punishment are a last resort. My board and train program only accepts 2 dogs at a time so your dogs’ training and safety will not fall to the wayside.

Michelle is an exceptional dog trainer! Her expertise and patience transformed our Cookie from a spirited puppy to a well-behaved, obedient delight. Michelle's methods are effective, and her dedication to both the owner and the pup shines through her practice. Highly recommend her for anyone seeking top-notch training. Cookie is a hyper energetic mini goldendoodle, who loves every one and everything. He needed a gentle but firm teacher to keep him obedient and non reactive to other dogs or people. Now we are working on his service dog training! Thank you greatly Michelle!! You truly are the best...

Michelle answered our request promptly, asked questions about our rescue Frenchie, and listened to our concerns and needs. When she arrived at our house she had everything she needed to have a successful interaction with both us and our dog. Michelle is professional, personable, and listens. Our Frenchie was happy to work with Michelle and has made incredible improvements since our visit. We had to travel out of town and were able to board Layla with Michelle where she worked with her on socialization skills with Michelle’s dog. Michelle is wonderful, knows dogs, and how to train them and their families. Thank you

She’s phenomenal! She’s formed a bond with my daughter and her dog to train them both.

We love Michelle! We have had a few sessions and she is so great with our stubborn puppy. She explains everything well and we're getting results. Michelle is patient with puppies and thier humans. :)
