Do you want a dog who focuses on you, responds to your requests, comes when called, walks nicely on leash, sits for greetings, settles down, and loves training? 



Replace barking, growling and lunging with engagement and focus in difficult environments and situations. 



Put your dog's incredible nose to work while building confidence, and providing healthy mental exercise. Nosework increases focus and calm behavior.



Help your dog develop confidence and coping skills around scary things such as people, sounds and other triggers. 



Join a small group class with a maximum of 6 dog. Receive the space and attention you need to create a well-mannered dog. Enjoy a supportive environment using modern, positive training.



Receive customized one-on-one coaching designed to help you address behavior concerns including reactivity, aggression, shyness, fear and anxiety.


I can make dog training easy, by doing the work for you. I'll come to your home twice weekly to train your dog. We’ll have a weekly private lesson to transfer the training results.

Karen Pryor Academy Listing

Wise Canine Training is owned and operated by Certified Trainer, Michelle Wieser. I've taught and assisted in dog training programs in Whitehorse for over 15 years through local dog training clubs.


My education includes a Professional Dog Trainer Certification and Puppy Start Right Instructors Certification from the Karen Pryor Academy of Animal Training and Behavior.

I have completed the Aggression in Dogs Master Course for Trainers and Behavior Consultants taught by world renowned aggression expert, Michael Shikashio, CDBC. This comprehensive program has equipped me with the knowledge and skills to assess risk, improve safety, and implement behavior change strategies designed to reduce aggressive behavior. 


I have completed coursework focused on managing fearful and reactive behavior, addressing self control issues, increasing focus for highly distracted dogs, scent detection and nosework. Each year I participate in continuing education programs to ensure the training you receive is based on modern research.  

All of this means that I have technical knowledge and hands-on skills in positive, science and behavior-based training methods. 


If you’re looking for a positive, science-based approach to training, get in touch!

Happy Clients 

Jocelyn and Kelsey

My collie Kelsey has some "fear" issues with respect to doorways and floors in particular. Michelle has helped me deal with his issues in a patient and understanding way and Kelsey has responded very well. He is becoming a more confident dog in different locations. Aside from private lessons with Kelsey I've had success at Michelle's regular obedience and scent classes as well. She is very good at analyzing a dog's behaviour and finding solutions to problems in a positive way that leaves both the dog and owner feeling good about their achievements! Having been to many dog trainers over the years I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone whose dog has behavioural issues. I also like the fact that Michelle is a fully certified dog trainer and maintains her credentials on an annual basis.
