"We have been working with Michelle for the past 5 months with our crazy pup, Maisie, and it has been such an amazing experience. I started looking for a trainer last year to address some reactivity issues in our pup Maisie. As an owner, it was definitely overwhelming trying to find the perfect trainer to work with our pup. I worked with several trainers prior to Michelle and I was never really satisfied with their level of knowledge or their styles of training. After searching through several websites and reviews on yelp, I came across Pawsitively Waggin' Academy. It seemed like a no brainer to reach out to Michelle since everyone raved about her. 

I extremely value professionalism and first impressions, and off the bat Michelle excelled in both. When I first reached out to Michelle in regards to training, I did not hear back for a couple of days (which I felt was normal). When she did respond, not only was she extremely apologetic (which was unnecessary), but her reasoning for not responding was because she was tending to an extreme case of aggression in one of her current clients. I was so moved by her extreme level of dedication, I knew she was the right trainer for my pup. 

Over the past couple of months with working with Michelle, my pup Maisie has made significant progress. Michelle equipped Maisie and myself with the tools to improving her problem behaviors. I sent her constant questions regarding Maisie and she always responded with basically a novel of advice. Also, after every training session, Michelle provides a review of the skills you learned and what to continue as "homework". The document also provided links to videos and book references to enhance my skill set as an owner. Overall, I'm so grateful for the progress Maisie has made these past couple of months, as well as the increased education I received throughout the process. When it comes down to it, most of our dogs' issues stem from the "other end of the leash" and I realized that A LOT while working with Michelle. I continue to look forward to working with Michelle with Maisie and hope to work towards gaining a therapy dog certification for our happy go lucky pup. You would be crazy not to go with Pawsitively Waggin' Academy!" - Lauren with Maisie
