Michelle evaluated and picked my dog, Wendy, from a group of rescued dogs. We meet regularly for service dog training through Pets and Patriots Foundation. Wendy is the best dog I've ever had. She helps me every day and I can't imagine life without her. - F. Wilcox, Army Veteran
Michelle was a great help when we needed to get tips on how to introduce dogs to each other. At West End Animal Hospital, we frequently help people let their current dogs meet potential new adoptees, as well as help them learn to meet new dogs at dog park and events. Michelle gave us excellent advice on how to help our clients. We learned that a lot of what we thought we knew was wrong, and the right way makes things a lot easier. - Dr. Cottrell
I highly recommend Michelle! She works so good with my dogs, they just love her! She has such great methods that work so well with my dogs. I go to her anytime I need additional help, even if it's more for my help than my dogs! - Alison Kinney
