A better way to train your dog

This is not your average dog training. We’ve created a membership-based, conceirge-style dog training experience. It is more convenient, human-friendly, dog-friendly, and fun!


LIVE Chats

One of the most amazing values to your membership is weekly access to Michelle via group Zoom chats!

You get regular access to a dog training expert, who was previously only available on that level for those who could spend hundreds a week on training.

Now, she can be available to you for a fraction of the cost!

During these live chats, you will be able to get your questions answered, as well as get feedback and help on anything specific.

Expert Guidance

Enjoy the peace of mind that your instructor has worked 15+ years as a professional dog trainer! Michelle has worked with all breeds, ages, and temperaments, and she can help you!

Not only does she have the hands-on experience, she has the credentials to back it up. Here are a few – Certified Behavior Consultant Canine, Certified Professional Dog Training, ProMember Association of Professional Dog Trainers, AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator, and Certified Trick Dog Instructor.


Because our program is based on a membership, we can offer you concierge-style dog training at a fraction of the cost.

Better yet, a membership with us costs less than the standard big-box store classes. It is also significantly less expensive than a private trainer coming into your home.

And, all of our memberships come with incredible value. You get access to all of our training materials, weekly LIVE chats with Michelle, and exclusive access to our private community.



No need to lug your dog halfway across town after a long day at work! We’re here when you need us!

Already know some stuff? Great! Save time and skip that section!

Trying to figure out something that is more challenging for your dog? That’s where we excel – pause, rewind, reread, fast foward, and bring it up at the LIVE chats. We’ll get you the help you need!

We have individual behaviors, training plans, and ready-to-implement toubleshooting guides, all at your fingertips!


You won’t find any quackery or yank-and-crank, old-school dog training here. Everything is science-based, effective and humane.

We have the hands-on experince that is so critical in this field. And, we have the book knowledge to back it up.

We’ve read hundreds of dog training books and gone to dozens of dog training seminars and workshops by world-class trainers, behaviorists, and veterinarians. Then we’ve taken all of that information and applied it… over and over again.

What we bring to you is all of that experience and knowledge distilled into one highly effective program.


Dog training is more fun with friends!

Savvy City Dog provides a community experience through exclusive access to our private community.

Our members support each other and make dog training more fun!

From puppy raising to working with your reactive dog, chances are we have other members who are going through, or who have gone through similar experiences.

Share your progress, receive and give encouragement, get and give new ideas, and form friendships to make your training journey even more amazing.

Dozens of Different Courses

We have dozens of different courses on every dog training topic imaginable. 

We also roll out new courses and materials every month, so you’re constantly getting access to new content.

Each course gives you an estimated time frame, as well as step-by-step instructions.

Members-Only Events

This is a HUGE difference between Savvy City Dog and other online trainers. Most online training programs at this price point do not give you this level of access to live expert training.

Savvy City Dog members get weekly live chats with Michelle. That way our members can feel confident in proceeding with their training, since we answer all of their questions! Michelle can even review video footage during the lives, so you’ll get custom feedback.

We know our members and their dogs on a personal level, and we are able to provide training that meets our member’s individual needs. This is not a cookie-cutter training program.


Dog training doesn’t have to be a lonely experience.

Savvy City Dog members have access to our exclusive community where they meet new friends, reconnect with old ones, and get tons of support along their training journey!


We know your time is valuable, and we are commited to providing dog training in a way that works for you!

That’s why we set up Savvy City Dog so that our clients can book a private session, upload a video for feedback, take a dog training class, sign up for a LIVE chat, and more… all at the touch of a button.

No waiting on people to get back with you. Just read… watch… sign up… upload… post…

All on your schedule. All when you’re ready to do it.

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!

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.
