Michelle was amazing! My dog is 3 and 1/2 years old. So, I was a bit late with training, but that ended up being a non-issue. Michelle taught my dog how to sit, heal, stay, and doorbell training as well. She patiently showed me how to interact with my dog while training. I wasn't really sure if there would be good results, since I waited so long to train, but I was wrong. Thank you Michelle for creating a great experience for Xena and I. I really appreciate it! 😊

We adopted Lucy who is 1 years old and within a few days of bringing her home we realized we needed to do lots of work with her. She has pretty bad anxiety issues and even has some aggressive behavior with strangers. Michelle did a great job with teaching us how to train our Lucy girl. In fact, on our first lesson she was able to get Lucy to stop barking within a minute of arriving - which we were never able to do before! We had 3 sessions with Michelle and our last session was the best one yet. We see a huge difference already! Lucy still has some work but with the guidance we received from Michelle, we are sure that she’s going to be a well mannered dog. Thank you so much Michelle!! We truly appreciate you!!

This is our handsome boy, Vader. He is a 7.5 month 105 lb Newfie. He is a very sweet boy; however, but as an adolescent, he has bec9me very stubborn. He enjoys going for walks; however, he started to drop so hebwoukd not have to return home to the point I could be stuck in the same area from anywhere to 20-40 minutes. He then began to drop in the middle of the road and I knew right away that I needed help for this significant behavior. Michelle was amazing and quick to respond if I had any questions prior to our first session. Our first session consisted of sit/stays and she helped me to learn how to effectively use a prong collar. After that very first session, it made such a tremendous difference! He had moments here and there of trying to rebel, but Michelle insisted that consistency is key to working with Vader which has paid off tenfold. We had our 2nd session yesterday which made me and my boyfriend feel much more confident when training with Vader. We truly owe Michelle so much for teaching us on how to become better leaders for our pup. Thank you so much, Michelle! I have you on speed dial if anything comes up. Haha

Michelle was great. She showed me how to manage my dog and her problem behaviors. My only complaint is she has not responded to a question I emailed her the next day.

Our dog has always been very eager to please and learn new things, but we were having some difficulties with jumping and distractions on walks. Michelle helped us to focus on being clear and consistent to help our dog better understand what's being asked of her and we noticed results in the first session!! Michelle was able to quickly evaluate our needs, teach us some new things, and improve on what we were already trying. I would absolutely recommend trying her before deciding to pay for a group class or a training camp. This was much more affordable and helpful!
