— Kate S.

"Michelle is such a wonderful person and an amazing dog behavioralist. She's patient and knowledgeable. She was willing to travel to us and be available by phone and text. Our dog was overly protective (aggressive to others), pulled us on walks, ate trash, and counter surfed. It didn't matter that we'd had dogs our entire life (or that my spouse had worked with dogs)...this is entirely a different kind of experience. This is not command training. It's emotional awareness...in the dog's language. Michelle helped us understand what our dog needed from us in order for our dog to give us what we wanted from her. Our dog is growing into the contented (but still full of sweet personality) member of our family we hoped she would be, thanks to Michelle's insight and professionalism."

Our Story...

Focusing on behavior issues in dogs of any age and breed.

Whether it's preventing problems or addressing existing issues, our approach is based on relationship building and effective, clear, consistent communication that makes sense to the dog. 

After all, our dogs can only think like dogs. It is our duty to understand them.


When it comes to behavior, we explore the underlying root causes - learning who your dog is as an individual and addressing the daily habits and routines we practice that impact our dogs. Rather than relying on obedience commands, treats, or physically controlling with force, we focus on influencing a dog mentally and changing how they FEEL in their environment. 

Our services are designed to meet the needs and goals of the individual people, dogs, and scenarios.
