Dog Training

Michelle is GREAT! We are so appreciative of her skills and knowledge and natural way with dogs. She helped trained and modify unwanted behavior with our pup last year and we invited her back for basic training with our new pup. She is great!

Dog Training

Michelle was great. We called her because our sweet, timid 2 year old rescue displayed some aggressive behavior that came out of the blue. She suggested a pinch collar, but once she met and evaluated the dog, ruled out it's use. In the one hour she spent with us, she gave us some useful techniques for handling "strangers in the home" events, tactics for getting the dog to engage in training and most importantly, assured us that we had a good dog who found herself in a situation she couldn't cope with and helped us see the event through the dog's eyes. I highly recommend her to anyone with a dog that has behaviors that need adjusting.

Dog Training

We loved working with Michelle. Dog training is just as much about training owners as it is training dogs, and we felt like she taught us really well. We had no idea what to do and we left our session with a clear understanding of how to set our dog up for success. If you are looking for an experienced trainer to show you the ropes, I highly recommend Michelle!

Dog Training

Michelle is an excellent trainer... A people trainer!! She will train you on how to train your dog because training takes practice between dog and dog parent that extends beyond the hour-long sessions with her. Michelle was always on time. Most importantly, Michelle is honest. She told us that we didn't need any more sessions far earlier than we expected and we appreciate that she didn't drag on the sessions just because. Thanks Michelle!!!
