Dog Training

Michelle is amazing! She got back to me immediately and spent time with me on the phone before even meeting my dogs to give me tips before our first appointment. And is always responsive and communicative in between appointments. I’ve always worked with my dogs and love training them. However, there are struggles I’ve had with them and haven’t been able to overcome on my own. She watches how they interact with me and how they are responding to their surroundings. She tells me when to train and how and I cannot say how much I appreciate her! She has made a HUGE difference in our lives. I get compliments almost daily now about how well trained our dogs are and I’ve only met with her twice over the last two months!! The main dog I had her come out to train is incredibly fearful and she helped me trained him even when he wouldn’t let her near him. But then at the second appointment she got him to warm up to her and has made a giant difference in him and his training. I love working with her and she not only trains the dogs but gives you the confidence and ability to work on things you didn’t know you could. I recommend her HIGHLY for any dog. Whether it’s basic obedience training or more in depth training. We are still working on our dogs but because I have her I have the all the confidence in the world that they will be the best trained dogs ever. Michelle is incredibly caring and easy to get along with, she is caring, empathetic and wise. Her knowledge is invaluable and her caring, funny nature makes her the best trainer anyone could ask for. Thank you Michelle!!!

Michelle is wonderful to work with! We have a 6 year old german shepherd that learned to walk wonderfully with her. Michelle also makes sure that you know she's available to help with any training issue you may have. I'd definitely recommend getting your dog trained with her!

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!
