About Wise Canine

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 Behaviour. In addition, I have completed coursework focused on early puppy socialization and behavior problem prevention, managing fearful and reactive behavior, addressing self control issues, increasing focus for highly distracted dogs, and scent detection (for fun). 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.

Happy Customers 

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.
