Introduction: Since I was a child, animals have been my passion. I was born and raised in Switzerland. I loved to stay at farms in my free time, played with cats, walked dogs and have ridden ponies and horses. I rescued three dogs from GCHS in Fort Myers. My 9 years old dog Polly is shy to human, Marley who is 10 years old is a growly to other dogs and my 4 years old dog Barkley has no issues. I am training him every day since I rescued him (he was 8 weeks old). I took private dog training lessons with Marley and Polly and a group class with Polly. I past the star puppy class and K9 good citizen test with Barkley as well as the K9 Good Citizen test. On 10/15/2017 we passed the TDI (Therapy dog International) test and on 11/02/2017 we passed the Service Dog test I am very proud :-). I have a lot of tips for dog training which I am glad to share with you. I offer to stay at your home / farm overnight to give my full attention to your pets and they will be happy to stay in their own environment. I will spend time to take care of animals by watering, feeding, playing, loving and walking (dogs). If animal owners want me to I will take pictures and videos of their furkids. I can bring Barkley, my Therapy / Service dog, if your dog wants a play companion. At the same time, I do home sitting: bring in your mail and newspapers, take trash out and water plants. I am licensed and insured. FL License no.: BT18-84510 Your home will be my happy place. I am delighted to be around animals. To stay at the pets home where it is comfortable makes me feel wonderful. My passion is to read and train dogs. I am very patient and my students like to work and play with me.

Dog Training

At our first session, Michele very quickly connected with both of my dogs and showed me several new things to use during training sessions. She's professional, warm, personable and competent. I've booked more sessions and look forward to reporting positive results.

Pet Sitting

Michele is fabulous! She is a true pet lover! She goes over and beyond to make sure the pets are cared for. I hired her in the past and now will again for 3 trips planned. She has helped my dog with anxiety and has a special connection with animals. It’s like they instantly are attracted to her. She also it excellent at training. She showed me how to make my dog patient and leave something go that she really wanted to chase. Michele also is skilled at Zoom services. You can do online classes too. I highly recommend Michele.

She truly cared about my dog. Treated him like a person and made sure his ever need was taken of. Made it easy to enjoy our vacation and not worry about the dog. Also worked on training him while she was watching him. A+

Dog Training

Our 2nd session with Barkley (Michele's therapy dog) was very good exposure to a large, gentle giant for my 2 teenie dependent sisters. Great session still much work to be done with my babies.

Dog Training

I never realized what a big difference it makes when you do training the right way. Michele is super and I can see the difference in my dog already (and me too). I am enjoying him more now that I can get him under control right away.
