Happy Nosework Students
Shari and Ketza
"Ketza and I just completed Level 2 Nosework. This is the second course I have taken with Wise Canine Dog Training. I was really happy with both courses, and have signed up to take the next two courses with Michelle. Michelle is very calm, positive, and friendly. Prior to the course, she sends a detailed questionnaire about your training experience and about your dog. She uses this information to set up an environment where each dog will have the greatest chance of success. She is welcoming and understanding of reactive dogs and provides environments where the dogs (and owners!) can feel safe and relaxed. The two nosework courses I have taken have been limited to 4 dogs per class, which provides lots of opportunity for each dog to practice. Her training is very clear, organized and well-planned. She increases the complexity/challenge gradually so that the dogs are always meeting with success. Michelle sends out email reminders a day or two before each class, and she sends out "homework" emails with a review of that class' lesson and activities to reinforce the new skills at home. She often includes video links. Ketza has learned very quickly. He and I both really look forward to class each week!"
