TESTIMONIALS

Our customer reviews speak for themselves.
We are extremely pleased with the professional support we have received from Michelle — and can’t imagine having made it through the first month of our life as new puppy owners without her. To start, she really knows what she is doing, and seems to have a quick and straightforward approach in response to every challenge we raise. This has included lots of basics, from getting our puppy into her crate and pen, to name recognition, basic commands, leash biting, “leave it” and much much more. She instills confidence in us, reinforced by her excellent followup emails that summarize all we’ve covered in each session and include handouts to guide us in our ongoing training efforts. Beyond this, our puppy adores her and would do anything she wants her to do!

Michelle identified my dog’s motivations and behaviors in such a short time! Her insight has helped my manage me dog’s reactive (could be called aggressive) actions towards other dogs. Thanks so much! This dog used to be almost beyond my ability to walk. Now we are happy campers strolling the neighborhood. THANK YOU MICHELLE!
Ann

It’s amazing, really. I have to say, the biggest difference is with her personality. She has so much more energy now. I didn’t realize how much the anxiety was exhausting her. She’s finally acting like the 2 year old dog that she is….it’s so much fun to see her playful and happy. I can’t help but wonder if being happier at home will help her be less stressed outside with other dogs. It definitely can’t hurt! I don’t think we would have ever have gotten this far so quickly without your help, Michelle. Thank you!

My wife and I recently adopted a rescue pitbull (8 months old). While he’s a sweet dog, I don’t think he ever had much in the way of training, and he was getting very excited and hard to control at times. Michelle has been working with him and us, and the transformation has been like night and day! She has shown us a lot of wonderful techniques for getting him to walk calmly next to us on the leash (which it is amazing to see given how bad he used to be), to play appropriately in the house, and many others. Michelle has a wealth of knowledge and a great manner with both dog owners and their dogs. I strongly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a trainer.
