“Pawsitively Waggin Academy was a wonderful experience for my family and our 16 week old Corgi. Michelle our trainer was amazing. Calvin our Corgi instantly fell in love with her. She spent time bonding with him on the first day, and from then on he was beyond excited to see her. Everything she recommended we do with him to train him worked. She is caring , compassionate and considerate. I can’t imagine any dog or owner that would not like love working with her. We were very lucky to get a good dog in Calvin, and even luckier to have met and worked with Michelle. I would highly recommend her for any training needs. She is the best. Having a new puppy is a wonderful experience, but they are a lot of work, and Michelle taught us how to make the best of that hard work. And because of her it truly paying off.” 



"I am so happy I found Pawsitively Waggin' Academy! Before bringing home my new puppy, I had thoroughly researched training methods. However, within the first few days, I was overwhelmed. Upon recommendation from my Vet, I contacted Michelle and purchased a puppy training package. My vizsla pup, Ellie, loves our trainer Mike and he has made the training process much more manageable. He is knowledgeable and is always available to answer my never-ending questions. We work on building positive behaviors with Ellie every week, and she has made significant progress. Mike updates my "homework" for the week in a google doc that I can easily reference when training Ellie. I expressed some concerns with socialization, and Michelle and Mike took Ellie out for a fun socialization day! They really go out of their way to make sure your dog's specific needs are met. They have been a pleasure to work with, and you can tell they love what they do! I 100% recommend Pawsitively Waggin' Academy!"



"Michelle was absolutley amazing with my cockapoo puppy, Chester, from 3 months to 7 months of age. From young puppy to now adolescent puppy behavior, Michelle has been with us every step of the way! She has helped my puppy become the best version of himself, more well rounded, and consistent. She has made raising a dog a breeze and gives great tips and tricks to help dogs grow mentally and emotionally. Chester and I will miss seeing her and are incredibly thankful for her expertise!"
